Well, when each of us came into this world, the world was already existing thousands or millions of years before each of us were born. We were just tiny infants when we were born, therefore, we had to be cared for by they who was before us. We also had to learn from them, what was good for us to do, and what was not good for us to do. There are some things which are good and useful to us, but can also be dangerous and hurtful, it all depends on how we are using them. Heat can keep us warm on very cold days, but if we turn up the heat to high, and stay in the house it can also burn us to death. We use fire to cook our food which we consider to be a very useful thing, but if we hold the fire in our hands, of try to eat the fire, it will burn us down. Therefore we have to protect a creeping child from a hot stove, so, that he or she does not burn down their selves. An electric iron is good for pressing your clothes, but if you put it on your skin it will not hesitate to burn you down. Electricity is good for giving us light, but if we hold the raw wire with our hands, while it is plugged into the circuit, it will burn you to death. Water is good to drink when you are thirsty, and good to have a bath, used to cook your food, wash your clothes, water you garden and so many other good uses, but if you take in too much water in a pool, or in the river, you will drown, so, even among various natural resources, there are good and bad ways to use them.
Now about the Creator, I am as puzzled as you are, concerning some things which are done upon this earth, which they generally say, is done by the Creator. He give human beings, the knowledge and energies, to build houses and Cities, and ships, and planes, and trains and all manner of things which human beings have made, and then he or she send Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Vulcanoes, Earth Quakes, Tidal Waves and many other kinds of natural disasters, and destroy them, and also kill thousands of people and animalsin these disasters. When these things takes place, I am left wondering, because I do not know why these things are done, and there is just no way to find out, on less there was some way that we could meet with the Creator, and humble ask he or she, why these things are done. So, we are back to what I said, there are good and bad things taking place in the communities, and it seems that they will all grow up together until the day of harvest. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
