Struck by the music boomerang!

Struck by the music boomerang!

I previously gave up pursuing music, but the harder I tried to throw it away, the harder it came back at me. No matter what excuse I tried to provide for not getting back into music, it was never good enough.

If deep down inside you feel the need to accomplish something, then you have to go for it! If you don’t, it will haunt you for the rest of your life.

My music is now up for the world to enjoy, or to hate… to criticize, or to love every moment of it. No matter what the response is, it simply feels good to do what I feel I must do before my time on this earth is up.

Enjoy! or not 🙂

Go for your Personal Gold in Life

Go for your Personal Gold in Life

Seeing Simone Manuel become the first African American woman to win the gold in the 100m freestyle reminded me of how important it is, despite everything that’s going on in the world, to just focus on what you feel called to do. You remaining diligent in fulfilling your goals automatically helps others as well. This is because you will be an example to others, have influence, as well as be in a better position to help. You can’t give what you don’t have, so in order to help others become free, you first need to obtain it for yourself. We can’t have the blind leading the blind.

Even if you diligently work towards your dreams and it doesn’t turn out the way you expected it to, the process of pursuing that dream will make you a better person, and you still will be able to do great things even if it’s different from what you originally planned. You should not allow the lack of breakthroughs in your life to break you. You must be victorious in your mind first before seeing any physical manifestation of it. When you have this mindset, your losses in life will become opportunities to learn and grow.

What’s Going On With New Lewi?

What’s Going On With New Lewi?

It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything musically. I’ve gone to a few shows here and there and had fun doing some freestyle on the mike, but that’s about it. The music is not forgotten, but is being refined for a later season. Music is not necessarily my primary “calling,” but it is certainly a great tool that helps me to express who I am. The “who I am” is the part I really have to focus on. Everything I do now, whether through my music, blogging and/or public speeches, is all with the goal of being a better father and positive role model for others.

There was a time when I felt lost not doing music, but that was because I simply didn’t know who I was. With the new revelation of myself and my purpose, I am truly happy even with the long break I’ve taken from my music. When I do get back to the music, it will not be because I need to, but rather because I have the freedom to. I am not concerned about how long it will take to “make it” so to speak. I can honestly say that I am enjoying life where I am in this moment in time. During this process, I’m even enjoying the “growing pains”, knowing that the trials are here to make me an overcomer.

I am truly a New Lewi. Through my blog I’m sharing the personal research I’ve done throughout the past five years. I’ve gone through some spiritual changes, questioning, researching, and studying everything I’ve been taught to believe. I’ve been going through the process of no longer just believing God, but now actually knowing God. I now understand why many ancient masters have stated, “know thyself,” and why in the Bible Jesus stated “the kingdom of heaven is within.” We are truly much more than this body we inhabit.

Life at times can seem unfair, but it’s not unfair for no reason. This is why the Bible says that God created both good and evil.

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” –Is 45:7

It’s the ying and yang of life. We all need some kind of resistance (the evil weight of the world) in order to become stronger, learning how to overcome all things. None of us can know what is good without knowing evil. None of us can choose love without knowing hate. This is why the opposite of love, the unfairness of life, the evil of the world is here. The “bad” things in life can ruin us if we don’t tap into the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of how to overcome it. It is the very weight we need in order to help us get stronger. Have you ever noticed how many people, during the most difficult of times, end up doing the most amazing things? Some of the greatest hit songs were made because of the rough times. Some of the greatest businesses were developed after going through many failures and rejections. Later on in my blog I’ll talk more about this, as well as life after death, and why there is nothing to fear.

Before finishing my document, “Just A Man Crying Out in the Wilderness,” for the next few weeks I will be re-posting each chapter, starting with my introduction. I’m truly looking forward to the continued growth that will take place from the future conversations I will engage in. I know that my blogs, for many, are hard to read because the material is very “heavy.” My blog posts are first for me, but whoever can come along or handle the ride, you are more than welcome to. Some people see my blog as an “attack” on Christians but that’s not what I am doing. I was brought up in the Christian religion and I wanted to truly study the Bible for myself, reading it in context, instead of just believing what somebody else told me it said. The core reason that many people – Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans in particular – became Christians was because they were forced into it by their oppressors, and the tradition was passed down through their lineage.

The origin of Christianity itself was good in that its purpose was connecting with God, but then Christianity was turned into a system of control over people. It was through this system of Christianity that my ancestors were enslaved, and why we had to, and still have to, fight so hard for freedom and equality in the midst of this system of control. Despite the brutal past of this religion, we can still learn from the many ancient teachings within the Bible, most of which originated from ancient African stories. This is the reason that you will see a lot of Bible scriptures in these blogs, and this is the main reason that I’ve stated my blog posts are “heavy.” Most people are not used to reading the Bible in context. They’re used to taking scriptures out of context, using it to say whatever fits their needs. I’m not necessarily saying it’s wrong to do that (if the scripture is helping you personally in a time of need) but it’s also important to understand things in the proper perspective.

Preachers, knowingly and unknowingly, have preached the Bible out of context for years, manipulating their congregations to do things the Bible doesn’t actually say. I am not here to attack your religion, but rather to help you understand that God is not confined in a religious box. We live in a predominately Christian world, and since the Bible is the world’s best-selling book, I use it as a reference, showing you things in context to help you understand it, as well as to show you where many of these Biblical stories came from. I challenge you to come on this journey with me. You will still be able to have that personal relationship with God within your religion, or you can choose to pursue that intimacy outside of any religious box. As you read through my blog posts, the one thing I want you to keep in the forefront of your mind is love, because love is my personal religion. Love is the reason I easily connect with people, as well as participate, when needed, in the rituals of whatever their religion is. God is love and that is exactly who I am.

Reading the Bible from the Right Perspective, Part 2

Reading the Bible from the Right Perspective, Part 2

Let us look at, according to the Pert M Heru (Book of the Dead), what the Egyptians believed regarding life and death, and we’ll be able to better understand what modern day Christianity adapted from the teachings and what was left behind. According to the ancient Egyptian teachings, we all have gone through many cycles of life, death, the experience of heaven or hell (depending how you lived your previous life), and then reincarnation if we haven’t yet achieved enlightenment. The purpose of life is to become enlightened/become spiritually born again/come to the realization of who we are/”know thyself”. Enlightenment is the only way to break the cycle of reincarnation and then move on to the next level, dimension, or frequency in life. If we live a negative life on earth, we will experience what we call “Hell” in the after-life. This is Karma/you reap what you sow/what goes around comes right back around again. You create for yourself Hellish conditions. It’s like having a nightmare that feels so real and you just can’t wake up from it. During this time, the process of Hell feels like an eternity, and then you will eventually be physically reborn back into the world in order to retake the test of life, because you’ve failed the test in becoming spiritually born again. This is very likely where the Christians got the concept, “ye must be born again…”

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” (John 3:3-7)

Jesus is revealing something here that is very powerful. We are all physically born in this world (born of the flesh, came from our mother’s womb surrounded by water), but Jesus explains here that the purpose of life is to become spiritually born again (going back to our origin, born of the spirit). “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Where is the Kingdom of God?

“Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He (Jesus) answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20-21)

Pay very close attention to what Jesus has stated, because he is revealing to us the true meaning of life. This is why it is so important to “know thyself.” The answer is not somewhere out there. The answer lies within. You were born with everything you need, no matter what circumstances surround you. All you have to do is awaken the Christ within.

Jesus will return, but how will he return? Jesus does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See, Jesus is here!’ or ‘See, Jesus is there!’ For indeed, Jesus is within you. Jesus will return when the people realize who they are. This is how we can eventually bring back Heaven to Earth. Throughout the course of history, the power of the individual has been taken away and has been given to a “higher authority” (such as a religious leader or leaders to rule over the people). This has caused people to disconnect from who they really are (divine beings created by God and possessing God’s authority). The “lowly people” then, instead of taking full responsibility in their circumstance, always end up dependent on someone else to fix their problems, which results in them having a slave mentality instead of a God mentality. I’m certainly not saying we shouldn’t work together and accept the help of others, but we shouldn’t allow that help to permanently become our crutch, causing us to become lazy and complacent with where we are in life. It’s always better to learn how to fish, so to speak, than to depend on someone else to provide a fish for you.

Christianity doesn’t teach reincarnation, but according to the Egyptians, if you do not become spiritually born again in this world, you will have to eventually be physically born again and go through the experience of this physical life again. If you live a good life on earth, yet still haven’t become enlightened, then in the after-life you will experience what we call “Heaven.” It will feel like eternity, but you will eventually have to be reincarnated again. When you are reincarnated, you will carry with you some of that “heavenly” quality you’ve developed. Similarly, those who are reincarnated who went through what we call “Hell” will carry with them a hellish quality that they will have to unlearn in their new life, or the next, depending how many lives it takes for that person to “know thyself”. If you live a good life on earth and you also become spiritually enlightened, you will then go back to your origin, becoming one with God, and will move on to the next phase/higher frequency of life. From this next level, you will still have the opportunity to help others in the world who are still going through the cycles of life, death, heaven or hell, and reincarnation. When these people pray and meditate, seeking help, you will be one of those sent by God to aid them. One of the ancient Egyptian traditions was praying for the help of their ancestors. The Christians, specifically the Catholics, adapted this tradition with the practice of praying to the saints. Eben Alexander, the neurosurgeon who wrote about his experience while his brain was attacked by a rare illness that caused him to be in a coma, talked about how this angelic being helped him as a guide in the spirit realm, and he later realized that person was actually his sister who died at a young age. (I highly recommend his book, “Proof of Heaven,” for insights into the afterlife.) Whether or not you believe the ancient Egyptians are right, their theories should be seriously considered, given the fact that the world still follows and studies many things these Egyptians knew long before we arrived. The construction of the pyramids and the sphinx (which is the incorrect name for it, because the sphinx was actually a Greek deity), for example, is still a mystery to us despite all our “modern technology”.

Let’s look at some other examples of what the Bible mimicked or plagiarized from the ancient writings:

The ancient Egyptian literature historically known as “wisdom literature,” particularly from the “Instructions of Amenemope, 1300-1075 BC,” can now be found in the Biblical writings of the book of Proverbs. We are told, from the Biblical perspective, that these writings are from a man by the name of Solomon, but the original, or oldest, literature proves to us that these writings are mainly from the ancient Egyptian Amenemope.

The Noah’s ark story is a very popular Biblical story, but this was also plagiarized. This story was taken from the Sumerian text of King Unipishtim, which tells of this wise king and his wife who survived a great flood that was sent by the god Enlil to drown every living thing on earth. The King was secretly warned by the water god, and he created a great boat to save himself, his family, and representatives from each species. When the flood waters subsided, he sent out a dove, which found no resting place and returned. A swallow was then released and this bird also returned. The raven was then released and this bird never returned. The king then made a sacrifice and poured out libation to Ea, the water god, on the top of mount Nasir.

The story of Moses was created from the observance of an ancient Egyptian image of Auset (Isis) who had her baby, Heru (Horus) among the bulrushes near the river Nile.

The creation story in the book of Genesis got its idea from the ancient Egyptian writing, “The Book of Knowing the Creations,” section 1. The original (or oldest) story talks about Ra speaking forth the world into existence, very similar to what we can now read in the book of Genesis, and after He (Ra) was finished, He rested on the seventh day.

Historically we can see that the Bible is a mythological book but there are spiritual principles we can learn from it if we read it from the right perspective. As I have explained in chapter 4 of my document, “The Descendants of Israel,” (https://newlewi.wordpress.com/2014/10/11/the-descendants-of-israel/) I do believe the Bible does share some spiritual truth in regards to the history and the enslavement of a particular African tribe that the Bible classifies as “Hebrew Israelites.” The Bible states that these black people were placed in bondage because they didn’t follow the laws of God, but I personally believe this was yet another twisting of scriptures in order to justify the enslavement of these people. For example, when we study the Biblical scripture regarding the tower of Babel, we can see how the scriptures were Europeanized, revealing to us the celebration of the Europeans finally dividing and conquering the Africans.

Gen 11: 1-8, “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”

The Strong’s concordance for “Tower” (4026) is “Migdal.” This is a pyramid. What’s being revealed here is that these strangers came to this part of Africa, saw this great pyramid and how these Africans were in unity with each other, and they made the decision to be god over them by finding ways to divide and conquer them, which is what historically happened.

“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”- Professor Chinua Achebe of Nigeria

For many years the Europeans have hidden their celebrated stories in plain sight for all Bible believers to read, while at the same time, incorporating themselves as the Israelites, God’s chosen people, even though Biblically and historically these Israelites were black people. This means that the majority of the people living in Israel today are not the true descendants of Israel. (Again, read chapter 4 of my document for further clarification.)

“Just think, that this race of black men, today our slave and the object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, science, and even the use of speech!”- Count Constantine De Volney, in 1787 after visiting Egypt.

Reading the Bible from the Right Perspective, Part 1

Reading the Bible from the Right Perspective, Part 1

As we’ve discussed in the previous chapter, religion means to “turn back to bondage.” Although religion is not inherently evil, powerful people have used it to control and manipulate large segments of the population throughout history. In my opinion, the word “religion” doesn’t truly describe what these spiritual establishments were meant to be. I believe that all these religions were created from a place of purity, but due to the eventual corruption of religious leaders, the various spiritual principles were then organized and rewritten to establish a system of control, hence the word “religion.” According to archaeological evidence, it seems that the origin of religion, as well as the origin of man, started in Africa.

Professor Sheila Coulson from the University of Oslo discovered mankind’s oldest evidence of religion in the Kalahari Desert, in a small cave in a place called Botswana. At the time of the discovery, Professor Coulson was studying a group of people who live in the sparsely inhabited area of northwestern Botswana. These people were called the San people. In this particular cave, there was a huge man-made statue of a python and two paintings, one of an elephant and the other of a giraffe. More than 13,000 artifacts were also found and all these artifacts were spearheads, which had been burnt on site, and articles that could be connected to ritual use, as well as tools used in carving the python stone.

“In the cave, we find only the San people’s three most important animals: the python, the elephant, and the giraffe. That is unusual. This would appear to be a very special place. They did not burn the spearheads by chance. They brought them from hundreds of kilometers away and intentionally burned them. So many pieces of the puzzle fit together here. It has to represent a ritual.”- Sheila Coulson stated to the University of Osla’s research magazine, Apollon.

A hidden chamber was also found behind the huge python statue and it seemed like it was specifically made for the shaman (their spiritual leader/priest), which is still culturally important to the San people today.

Donald Johanson, the paleoanthropologist who found the oldest human fossil in Ethiopia that is popularly known as “Lucy,” has also provided an overwhelming amount of archaeological evidence which further implies that Africa is the mother land of all human beings. Donald Johanson is the author of the book, “Lucy: The Beginning of Humankind.”

“… we are all united by our past… we all have a common history and though we may be vastly different, our origins all lead back to the crucible of human evolution that is Africa.”-Donald Johanson, Time interview done by Lauren E Bohn, March 4th 2009.

We’ve drifted away from the truth of our oneness and we’ve become divided into our little boxes of race, religion, economic status, etc. I love to see the diversity that has developed over the centuries, but we certainly shouldn’t allow one group or culture’s way of doing things to cause us to put down another group’s way of doing things. We should instead learn from each group and work together whenever we can, in order to promote a better life for all of humanity and mother earth. The major religions in this world—Christianity, Islam, and Judaism—have their history of committing the most brutal crimes done to humanity, but this was a result of each religion’s corrupted leaders. If we don’t fall for the constant media propaganda, the “us vs. them” mentality, we will be able to remove the veil from our eyes and see that there are people within each of these religions who are pursuers of peace and love.

There are people who’ve learned to love God and man through the Islamic religion, but there would be no such thing as a Koran (Quran) if it wasn’t for the Jewish/Christian Bible. There are also people who’ve learned to love God and man through the Jewish and Christian religion, but there would be no such thing as a Jewish/Christian Bible, if it wasn’t for the ancient Egyptian and Sumerian spiritual teachings. Since Christianity is the most popular religion in the world, I will mainly focus on this religion, and share with you how this religion was developed, as well as how the people have drifted further and further away from the real purpose of the early Biblical scriptures.

The early Christians were great followers of the ancient Egyptian traditions. In fact, the oldest Gospels can be traced back to Egypt. Even the oldest known painting of Jesus Christ, showing him as a black man, can also be traced back to Egypt (Oldest painting of Jesus is in the Coptic Museum in Cairo, Egypt). The early Christians were classified as Coptic Christians (Coptic meaning Egyptian nationality or Egyptian foundation). When we review the Biblical stories in the Bible, we can find older versions of these stories when we look into the ancient writings of the Egyptians and the Sumerians. For example, there are many poetic mythological stories of Heru’s (whom the Greeks called Horus) birth, death, and resurrection which were then used to describe the later version of Heru in the form of Jesus. Even the story which illustrates Heru walking on water was also used to describe the Christians’ modern day messiah.

“I go to become one with my father. The deliverance through my father is through my brother, is through my elders and through Heru who comes walking on water of his father.” – From the Egyptian coffin text.

The New Testament book of John, which talks about Jesus being the word that became flesh, is also seen in the description of Ausar (Greeks called Osiris). The Pert M Heru, popularly known as “The Book of The Dead,” called Ausar “the word that became flesh.” Ausar was also classified as the “King of kings and Lord of lords,” as Jesus is called in the Bible. In Egyptian myth, Heru (the son) and Ausar (the father) are seen as separate but yet they are one, which is the same way Christians describe Jesus, the son, and God, the father.

“Jesus is a symbol of the potential realization of the divine word or essence in every human being.”- Dr. Muata Ashby

In ancient times, Heru was the symbol of the potential realization of the divine word. Throughout history there have been about 16 messiahs before Jesus, who were a symbol of the potential realization of the divine word (“Christianity Before Christ” by John G. Jackson, “The Worlds Sixteen Crucified Saviors” by Kersey Graves). There is nothing wrong with using someone else’s story in order to make it relatable to your people, which is what the early Christians were doing when they were trying to spread the gospel (good news) throughout the world, but the focus wasn’t about believing in the literal stories that were being presented, but to rather learn the meaning behind the stories. When we look at the oldest religious discovery founded by Professor Sheila Coulson, we can either look at it from a literal perspective, thinking that the San people were worshippers of the python, the elephant, and the giraffe, or we can try to understand the meaning behind why they chose these animals to represent something that they saw as godly. For example, the ancient Egyptians chose the image of the falcon to represent Heru. The falcon has thin, tapered wings which enable it to fly at high speed and to change direction rapidly. This bird can fly at a very high altitude and yet spot its prey from miles away. The Peregrine falcon has been recorded diving at a speed of 200 mph, which means this bird is the fastest moving creature on earth (“The Speed of Animals,” The New Book of Knowledge, Grolier Academic Reference, 2003 p. 278). When we study the nature of this bird, we get a better understanding as to why the ancient Egyptians used the image of the falcon to represent Heru, which is where the word “hero” came from.

When we read the story about Jesus, we can either look at the story from a literal perspective, or we can look deeper into the meaning behind the story. When I read the Bible from the right perspective and I say, “Jesus is my Lord and Savior,” what that means is that I’ve made the decision to allow my higher self or the divine word within (Heru consciousness, Krishna, Buddha, Christ, etc.) to be Lord over my lower self (the flesh and/or animal nature) and because of this, I am saved from living a life that will lead me to destruction/damnation. This is the truth that modern day Christianity has drifted away from. Even those who consider themselves Coptic Christians today have drifted away from the ancient Coptic teachings. One of the main reasons was because Christianity was eventually taken over by the Orthodox and Roman Catholics, and throughout the course of time, the religion became more of a forced belief system and/or a requirement that was placed on the people. Because of this, the people were no longer able to review and interpret the scriptures for themselves. The people were now dependent upon the person they claim as the “man of God” (minister, pastor, Priest) to interpret the scriptures for them. The Catholics and the Orthodox were one and the same until they split in 1054 AD, historically known as the East-West Schism. From this time moving forward, Christianity drifted further and further from the original purpose of the Bible.

“The authors of all the world’s scriptures were divinely inspired, however, they worked with the limited instrument of the human personality, which is in itself prone to error. This was true in ancient times as it continues to be true in modern times. The pursuit of perfection in life is not found in perfectly written scripture.” – Dr. Muata Ashby

The Bible is not perfectly written, as I’ve shown in the previous chapters within this document. Still, we can spiritually grow within the teachings of a religion such as Christianity as long as we don’t allow the limitations of that religion to stop us from, at times, thinking outside of the box. We can learn from the Bible, but we should keep in mind that when it was written, or better yet re-written, there was also a hidden agenda that was carried out with the later versions of the Bible scriptures. This hidden agenda was not just to promote white supremacy but specifically white male supremacy. This is why for so many years our world has been out of rhythm with God, nature, and with all of mankind. Through the use of the Bible, many Christian religious leaders, in subtle ways (consciously as well as subconsciously) have promoted slavery, white superiority, and even the subjugation of all women.

We can see the subjugation of women when we look at the Biblical Adam and Eve story. The Adam and Eve story, in the Jewish/Christian Bible, was taken from the ancient Sumerian story of Enki and Ninti. In the original (or oldest text we discovered) story, Enki (the man) ate some herbs from his garden that got him sick and his rib was hurting him. Enki called out to God for help and God sent him a woman, Ninti to heal him. The word for “rib” in Sumerian is “ti”, which also means, “to make live.” “Nin” is lady or woman, so the woman that God sent to heal the man was called, “Woman of the rib.” This is where the Biblical story got the idea when it says in the Bible that God took Adam’s rib and created a woman. Later on, in the Biblical story, the woman wrongfully ate from the tree God told her not to eat and she also gave it to the man to eat. As a result of the Bible twisting the Enki and Ninti story, the man was now placed as the ruler above the woman, blaming the woman for sin entering the world. I remember those days growing up as a Christian I used to minister to the youth sharing with them the Adam and Eve story. After explaining this story I would then say, “but thank God for Jesus!” For Christians, Jesus is always the answer (the one who wiped away our sins and freed us from the old ways), which is not a bad thing if you truly understand what or who Jesus actually represents.

Throughout history women were certainly less respected compared to men. The ancient Africans had high respect for the women because the women were a closer representation of God than the men. It is the woman that brings forth life. Yes, the man provides the seed but the woman does so much more. From the womb of the Universe comes forth life. From the womb of the galaxy comes forth life. From the womb of the earth comes forth life. From the womb of the woman, and every female creature on earth, comes forth life. God is the perfect harmony of male and female. Generally speaking men are physically stronger than the women, but the female is stronger in pretty much every other area of life. The men are physically stronger, not because they’re supposed to rule over the women, but because they’re supposed to serve the women. Given the facts, who’s to say that the female aspect of God isn’t the dominant aspect?

If I say today, “My God, She is so wonderful,” it would sound so weird to many who are used to God being referred to as a male. In the earlier times of Catholic history, we do see examples of God in female form, despite the male dominant world we live in. For example, there are various paintings of what is called the “Black Madonna.” The Black Madonna is the oldest painting of Mary, who is seen as the mother of God, and she is also seen as a dark skinned person. This is because the idea for the Black Madonna was taken from the Egyptian deity Auset, which the Greeks called Isis, and also from the Egyptian deity called Net. Net, in the Egyptian mythological story, is the deity who is seen as the mother of Ra. One of the traditions for Net was the lighting of the candles, torches, and/or lamps because she was seen as the mother who brought forth light (Ra, the God of light) and she was classified as a woman of liberty (lady liberty). Net was also seen as the ocean of consciousness (God’s consciousness) from which all things came into being. Auset or Isis was the wife of Ausar (Osiris). Auset was the one who resurrected her husband, but because his phallus was the one piece that wasn’t found, Auset transformed into a bird (this is where the Christians got the concept of a spiritual dove), flapped her wings over her husband, arousing him to the point where he ejaculated into his wife and she was declared as the virgin who gave birth to Heru (Auset was slaughtered by his jealous brother Set and cut up into 14 pieces and Ausar’s wife placed him back together again). An erected phallus was later created to represent resurrection. Keep in mind these are mythological stories. The main focus is not to believe in the story literally but to learn the meaning behind it. Auset was also a part of the trinity: Ausar, Auset, Heru. The ancient Egyptians always had more than one concept that represented the trinity but Ausar, Auset and Heru was the most popular trio. This was the trinity that the Christians later adapted. Because of the promotion of male superiority, the trinity went from father, mother, son, and was later changed to father, Holy Spirit, son.

The ancient Egyptians are known for their beliefs in many gods, but when we look into the Pert M Heru (The Book of the Dead), the book reveals to us that all the gods and goddesses of Egypt were many and yet they were one. The Egyptian king, Akhenaton, is seen as the first monotheist (the belief in one God). What he was presenting to his people was not necessarily new. The concept that Akhenaton was trying to present to his people was to show them the truth that was written in the Pert M Heru.

“This was not a departure from Ancient Egyptian philosophy, but an attempt to reinforce elements, which were already present in the very early forms of worship…” –Dr. Muata Ashby

“I am the Great God, the self-created one, Nun… I am Ra… I am Geb… I am Atum… I am Asar (Ausar- Osiris), I am Min… I am Shu… I am Anubis… I am Aset (Auset- Isis)… I am Hathor… I am Sekhmet… I am Orion… I am Saa… I am the Lion… I am the young Bull… I am Hapi who comes forth as the river nile…” – Chapter 23 from Pert M Heru (The Book of The Dead).

Whenever we as a people drift away from our true natural connection with the One God who appears in many forms/attributes/reflections, it causes us to go down a path of destruction/damnation.

Spirituality vs Religion

Spirituality vs Religion

Chapter 11 from my document, “Just a Man Crying Out in the Wilderness”

According to the Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, the word “religion” originated from the old Latin word, “religio” which means, “taboo or restraint.” We can dig even deeper and look at the two different roots, “re” and “ligare,” which make up the word, “Religio.” Re is a prefix which means “return,” and ligare means “to bind.” This suggests that the true meaning of religion is to turn back to taboo/restraint/bondage and explains why I’m not a follower of religion. I do, however, enjoy learning the pieces of truth that each religion has to offer. The truth within the many world religions is what attracts people to them. People have an innate spiritual ability to connect with God, and many have experienced great favor, healing, and other miracles within—or perhaps I should say in spite of—their religion. It’s not the religion that brings them results, it’s their spirituality, or consciousness as some call it, that allows people to tap into God. The problem is, when some people tap into God, they can only interpret and/or receive the experience according to their religious limitations. When God tries to communicate with them outside of their religion, they often block or rebuke the message.

Religion helps many people to become disciplined and to truly seek inner peace with their Creator, but throughout history and even now, it has also caused so much bloodshed. Part of the reason is because some religions proclaim to be the only way to God and teach that all other religions are evil or not chosen by God. This type of teaching causes people to have an “us vs. them” mentality. As Stephen Mehler, the author of the book, “The Land of Osiris” has stated, “Religion is the business that evolved from spirituality,” and the purpose of these religious businesses is to make a profit of souls to be invested in their belief in order to be successful. Religion is one of the main reasons so many people have been brutally murdered in the name of God. We can see the same historical stories of how religion has stolen, abused, raped, and murdered people over and over again, and Christianity has been the most deadly religion to humankind the world has ever seen. For example, the Africans, Native Americans, and Hispanic peoples have all suffered the same fate because of religion, and Christianity in particular. The strangers of the land came into their country. They pretended to come in peace and gained the trust of the indigenous people of the land. The strangers learned the spiritual ways of the people, but then they created their own version of what they learned. By stealth they began to take control of the land and profited from the land’s resources. After these strangers created the chaos, doing the most heinous crimes against the people, they then offered some kind of order to the very people they stole from (order out of chaos). They brought forth the “good news” of salvation, with their “holy” book that is according to their organized religion which came from the very same spiritual principles of the indigenous people. They specifically organized this principle of “salvation” according to their way, with the sole purpose of establishing their superiority over all other races. There is undeniable historical proof of these crimes, but people are regularly discouraged from looking for these skeletons in the closet. The reason that certain groups and/or races view the white man as the devil is because history shows that white people, more than any other race, have committed the most devilish acts against humanity. Before you misunderstand me, the fact that I’m sharing this truth does not mean that I have some sort of hatred towards white people. The origin of man started in Africa, so technically speaking we, melanin-rich as well as melanin deficient people, are all Africans.

Christianity, Islam, and the Jewish religion have killed more people than they’ve “saved.” We all would’ve been better off not having these religions that essentially have been used to control the masses. I remember a quote from Marcus Garvey which states, “Any leadership that teaches you to depend upon another race is a leadership that will enslave you.” I believe this is also true when it comes to religion, and/or believing in a religious messiah. Any leadership that teaches you to depend upon their religion, or their messiah, is a leadership that will enslave you.

“If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions.” – Carter G. Woodson.

Yes, I believe that people can experience some form of freedom within their religion, again, if they’re taking the time to truly tap into God. Unfortunately, that relationship is limited to a particular religious box. Some people have even experienced a visitation from God, and/or what we call Angels, but again, they can only receive from this entity within the confinement of their religion. For example, I have heard of people who say, “I was visited by Jesus,” or “I was visited by Buddha,” because this was the only way they were able to receive the revelation. Although I must say that it is more plausible if someone says they were visited by Buddha (or they were visited by a deceased relative, loved one, or friend), because compared to Jesus, who was a made up character, Buddha was more than likely real. Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama Shakyamuni was the one who was proclaimed as awakened, which is what Buddha means. Buddha is really a title, just like the word Christ or Krishna is also a title. We all have the ability to become Buddha or to become Christ or Christ-like. There is some form of truth when someone says they were visited by Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Allah, etc. The truth is that the one who received the visitation was visited by someone who was awakened and/or on a higher level/frequency/dimension, who came to aid or encourage them in time of need.

I’m reminded of a friend of mine who wrote a song I really enjoy. It’s called, “Life without Limits” by Yadira Laguerre. Religion has some benefits but it also puts a limit on your spirituality. You can’t truly live a life without limits within the bondage of religion.

“The more a man surrenders to God, and unfolds this heaven in himself, the nearer the human comes to God and the more he becomes a man, because he has a greater share in the cosmic consciousness or the all-embracing whole.” -Swedenberg scholar, Ursula Groll

Your spirituality or your consciousness is a part of, as well as one with, the Creator. How can we as human beings tap into the Creator? How can we become Buddha or Christ?

“Prayer is the art of talking and not listening, and meditation is the art of listening and not talking.” – Malachi Z York

There are many people praying, which is indeed important, but not many people are meditating (listening), or waiting for an answer. Prayer and “calling those things that be not as though they were” does work in many cases. The power of agreement also works, but we can obtain and achieve so much more if we just take time away from all the distractions and listen to what God and/or an enlightened one who came to aid us has to say.

“The answers we seek are not inside a church or an altar or on the lips of a preacher. They are within us.”

“This spiritual connection that you have with the Higher Power of creation and the universe was given to you at the time of your birth.” – Walter Williams

We can indeed learn some things from others that we didn’t know before, but to truly receive confirmation we must seek within. If you become an expert in meditation, like Siddhartha Gautama Shakyamuni, you can begin to manifest in the physical realm what you have chosen to receive in the spiritual realm, and you will become Buddha.

In this present world we are all born in sin, meaning we are born in the midst of a sinful world, but we are not born sinners. We have the free will to choose a life of “Set” (sinful life or a life not in rhythm with love), but our natural spiritual connection to be born again (awakening to the truth that we are born of God), has been given to us before we exited our mother’s womb. It’s up to us, once we are born and raised in this world, to seek the answer within ourselves so that we can awaken to who we really are and why we are here. According to the ancient Egyptian teachings, if you are not reborn or awakened during your time here on earth, then you haven’t learned or fulfilled your mission, and you will have to take the class again (reborn physically instead of spiritually), or in other words, be reincarnated. Those who do fulfill their mission will move on to a higher place of consciousness, or what we call “heaven.” We can find this teaching in the surviving papyri from Ancient Egypt, “The Ru Pert em Heru” or “Ancient Egyptian Book of The Dead.” The following quote is one of my favorites from this book, “I know myself, I know myself, I am One With God!” Dr. Muata Ashby does a very good job explaining these Egyptian Hieroglyphics, and for those interested, I recommend his book, “The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Coming Forth by Day.”

The Bible is without a doubt a mythological book, however, many of the spiritual concepts, practices, and teachings in it were taken from Ancient Egypt. For example, in the ancient Egyptian “Book of the Dead,” which was written over 3,000 years before Jesus, there is a mythological man by the name of Heru (Greeks called him Horus). He was the original “messiah” who was born of a virgin, walked on water, died and rose again. This is where Christianity got its idea for their messiah. The difference between Christians today and the ancient Egyptians is that the ancient Egyptians knew that it was (for the most part) a mythological story, and that the purpose of the story was simply to help them remember spiritual concepts/teachings, as well as understand astrology. For example, Auser (Greeks called Osiris) was the going down of the sun. Once the sun is hidden in darkness, the darkness was then called Esfet or Set. (In Christian mythology, the name Satan is used to describe Set) Auset (Greeks called Isis), who was also called “Meri,” was the hidden miracle that nurtured and gave birth, as well as resurrected, the sun. When the sun rose the next day, the sun was called Heru, and it was also seen as the resurrection of Auser. According to the mythological Egyptian story, Auser (Osiris) the father, Auset (Isis) the mother, and Heru (Horus), the son, were seen as the trinity. Set was Auser’s brother. In the story, Set killed his brother Auser. Auset was the one who hovered over her husband, and not only was she miraculously impregnated by him, she also resurrected him back to life. Heru was the victorious son or sun that was made new. Heru is just like his father. They are one. The mother is also the hidden force or Holy Spirit that causes the sun to rise. She, too, is one with the father and the son. This story is not just about the miraculous falling and rising of the sun, it’s also a representation or mirrored image of the Creator. We are falsely taught that the ancient Egyptians worshipped many gods, but what they knew was that all these “gods,” or better yet, attributes of the One Creator, were representations, as well as reminders, that we are one. There is no existence outside of the Creator, therefore every living being is a god or an attribute of God. We are not God, but yet we are God.

The other truth to this mythological story is that we ourselves have the trinity within us, as well as the “dark-side” which is important in order for us to have the power of free will (we have the Auser, Auset, Heru, and the Set within us). Part of the purpose of life is to learn how to overcome or control the negativity of Set. We can’t destroy it because it’s a part of who we are, but we are to control it, or use it wisely in rhythm with the trinity. Set is “bad” whenever it is out of rhythm with the trinity, but when in rhythm with the trinity, there are times when you need the Set side/dark side of you to rise up and not allow someone else to use and abuse you. I don’t want you to misunderstand me, so I’ll give you an extreme example. If a person breaks into my home with an out of rhythm spirit of Set, and that person is about to murder my whole family, my in rhythm Set side of me will not hesitate to end that person’s life, in order to save my family.

When you gain an understanding of the ancient African teachings, you will be able to see these teachings even within the Bible. When reading the Bible, the focus should not be about waiting for this messiah to come save you. The focus is about YOU becoming a messiah for the people. YOU are born of God. YOU have the ability to become born again or awakened within this world/realm of living. YOU can be the savior of the world/your people or family. YOU can give your life in order to save others. This made up character, Jesus, didn’t die for me, but many of my ancestors did. They were my messiahs. I’m thankful for the sacrifices they’ve made for me. I will not take it for granted. It is now my time to make sacrifices for others, helping people to become Heru-conscious, or as the Bible says, become Christ-like.

The Creation of Jesus the Christ

The Creation of Jesus the Christ

Chapter 10 (from my document, “Just a Man Crying Out in the Wilderness”

“The True Authorship of the New Testament” by Abelard Reuchlin shares a very compelling history regarding the creation of the New Testament. The Piso and Flavian Roman families were the ones who played a major role in creating this messiah called Jesus Christ. There are, however, some people who will argue that there were Christians before the Romans supposedly created Jesus. I believe this to be true because history shows us that Jesus was the reincarnation of a created god called Serapis Christus, and the followers of Serapis Christus were called Christians.

A Correspondence of Emperor Hadrian that was written to Serviamus, in 134 AD states, “Egypt, which you commended to me, my dearest Serviamus, I have found to be wholly fickle and inconsistent, and continually wafted about by every breath of fame. The worshippers of Serapis (here) are called Christians, and those who are devoted to the god Serapis (I find), call themselves Bishop of Christ.

It all started with the European invasion into Africa. In 332 BC, the one they call “Alexander the Great” came in and took control of Egypt. The word “Egypt” was a Greek word that was given to this particular group of African people (just as the OT declares that another particular group of Africans were called Israelites).

After the death of Alexander, Ptolemy the 1st took control of Egypt and, taking the idea from the Egyptian images, he decided to make himself a god. Ptolemy the 1st was the first European Pharaoh, and he titled himself, “Meryamun Septenre (aka Soter).” Mery means “beloved”, and amun means “God”. Septenre means “chosen by God” and the word Soter means “savior”. This European Pharaoh insisted that the Egyptians make an image in his honor. The image was called Serapis Christus. The name, “Serapis” was taken from the most popular Egyptian triad, Osiris, Isis, and Horus. These names are also translated names. The people of Khemet (ancient Egyptians) called them Ausar, Auset and Heru, respectively (Auset was also called “Mery,” which is how they later came up with the name, “Mary” for their Roman image for the mother of God). The Europeans took the concept of this trinity and created their version of a god. They took Osiris and Isis, the translated names, and came up with the name, Oserapis which was later changed to Serapis. Serapis then took the place of the son, Horus (Heru), which the Europeans also interpreted as a sun god. The Romans accepted the Serapis deity and later made a devotional ritual to honor this new god.

“The savior and leader of souls, leading souls to the light and receiving them again… He raises the dead, he will save us after death, and we will be protected in his providence,” (reference, Serapis, The Outline of History, by H.G Wells, Volume 1).

From the creation of Serapis Christus, and through many council meetings that took place many years after, Serapis Christus was reinvented as Jesus Christ. The first meeting was the Council of Niceae the 1st in 325 AD. The main purpose of this meeting was to take the Serapis image and insert it into the Egyptian Divine Triad, making it the son of Osiris. The next meeting was the Council of Constantinople the 1st in 381AD. The focus of this meeting was on how to stop those who were resisting the creation of Serapis. During this meeting a creed was made, which would be recited for all future meetings, “God the Father, God the son, the same.”

The next meeting was the Council of Ephesus in 431 AD. In this meeting, they decided to give the image of Serapis a human nature. In order to do this, they decided to give Serapis a mother. They once again, took the idea of the mother from the Egyptian Triad, and created the idea of a virgin birth, bringing forth a god. This is the reason the Romans called their image “Holy Mary, the Mother of God,” because of Auset (Isis) being referred to as “mery.”

The Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD, then came up with the concept that Serapis is all man and all God, and that he should be called, the son of God. This is when the religion, Christianity, officially began. The Council of Constantinople the 2nd, in 553 AD, was mainly about sealing the deal, so to speak. During this time, certain rituals such as the offering of bread and wine as the body and blood of Christ, were created. It was also decided that they should lose the name Serapis but still keep the image of this god. The Greeks called Christ “Zeus” or “Odin” and the Romans called Christ “Jupiter”. The name Jesus is a derivative of the name Zeus. Iezv or Iesu, as it is spelled today using the Greek-Latin alphabet (The Greek and Latin alphabets are derivatives of the phonetic alphabet, which is the second form of writing of the Ancient Egyptians). For example, in Spanish, the name Jesus is pronounced “Hey Zeus,” which gives us the real meaning of the word Jesus (references regarding the origin of Christianity, “The Historical origins of Christianity” by Walter Williams).

Serapis, Zeus, Odin, Jupiter, and Jesus are all the same gods. We can easily use Google image and look up the images of each of these gods and you’ll see how similarly they are portrayed. We can also do the same thing with the name Cesare Borgia as well as Santa Claus. There was a time in history when Jesus was also portrayed as a black messiah. The Romans portrayed this messiah in the image of a particular African tribe, those the OT calls Israelites, in order to convert and control them. This was why the New Testament books such as Acts 13:1 (Israelites called “niger” which means black) and Revelation 1:14-15 (messiah’s feet like fine brass) briefly implies that the Israelites and the messiah in the New Testament fit their description (there are also many other scriptures in the OT that further indicate that the Israelites were a group of black people). The majority of the Jesus Christ images that were created were later white-washed, which is a term for turning the characters of the Bible into Caucasian people. The image of Jesus was turned into Cesare Borgia, son of Pope Alexander VI, who had a very similar look to Serapis/Zeus/Odin/Jupiter. Probably not just a coincidence. Santa Claus is more of the joyful/commercial version of this god. Yes, there is the story of Saint Nicholas and his good deeds. Many people believe that the story of St. Nicholas led to the creation of Santa Claus, but this idolized god is much older than the story of St. Nicholas. Serapis, Zeus, Jupiter, Odin, Jesus, Santa, as well as Lucifer (as shown in the previous chapter) are all one and the same.
