Maintaining Sanity & Balance

Maintaining Sanity & Balance Sent Thursday, August 25, 2011

Maaha (Godd Afternoon)

"We are not them. We cannot be them without losing sanity. No one can be
Afrakhem and European. The Afrkhem and European ways are irreconcilably
incompatible. Not even amalgamation can change that. Our Way is, has been and
always will be Afrakhem. So, we cannot ask of ourselves the mentacidal questions
they put in our minds. We cannot seriously ask ourselves irrelevant questions
or believe answers which lead to forgetfulness. Our questions must always lead
us home. For, how can you find your way home by forgetting your way home? How
can you find your way home by forgetting how you got to where you are now. How
can you find your way home without figuring out how you got lost in the first
place. Unless you see home as some backward, barbaric, pagan outland or limit
it to the place your stolen ancestors were brought to, you must look further
than the deception of white lies to find our truth."
Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti
