Good day to all, we will be having our book club discussion this evening beginning at 8 pm. The subject for tonight is posted below,  all who will be apart of tonight’s discussion will be expected to read.  Professor TY, will be the moderator for the evening and for the evenings discussion. She will, when she comes post her own instructions which we will all adhere to. I urge you all that if you have to post any comments not related to this particular post or book club discussion, please make the comments in the post below this one, as I want this board to be for just the discussions only. Last week we had a wonderful time and we learned a lot, we thank Yw who did a fine job, and I also thank you all for being supportive and showing up. We must learn, this is why we are here on this realm and it is to acquire knowledge and also to pass on knowledge. Knowledge is knowledge, so being selective in what you learn is not wise. you will never know when you need to use what you once rejected to know or learn. Let us use this space for all the good that we can, and learn from each other, let us exercise our brains, and whatever we learn from each other, I urge you all to share, pass it on. Post no videos please, so that the weight of them will not interfere with the post tonight

Esu, a Pataki

There was once two farmers who were best friends since they were children, their family farm were on the opposite side of each other. Every day they would go to farm and then at noon they would take a brake and have lunch and shoot the breeze together. They were as close as two peas in a pod, and even made a covenant that they would be fiends forever, nothing could break their friendship. One day while both were working o the opposite side of the road on their farm Esu (Eh-Shu) walked by, he was wearing a  cap where one side was white and the other side black.One of the farmers saw him first and hailed him , “Ekale ooooo Esu, Ba wo Ni Nko? Good afternoon Esu, how are you, you fine? Esu responded, “Dada ni, mommy nko, daddy nko, oremi nko? is everybody ok?, “Kosi wa hala sah”, no problem sah. and Esu walked on

As he went further down the road, he the other farmer called out smiling and waving, “Esu oooo, ba wo ni oooo, Ekale oooo!, Esu waved back and hailed “Ekale, Ba wo ni?, good afternoon, how are you? to which the farmer responded, “mo wa dada, Esu, se alafia ni!, “I am fine, all is at peace”

Later that day, the two friends sat down together to have lunch as they did everyday since they were children. One asked “did you see Esu today pass in his white cap?

The other answered, “Yes, I saw him pass today, but he wore a black cap”, hey both began correcting each other, both insisting the Esu wore white and the other said he aw black, the argument became heated and turned into a fight, all blood run. The case was brought before the elders. Both were bloodied and bruised, clearly the friendship was over, but while court was in session, both arguing that the other called him a liar, in walked Esu with the cap, painted half white and half black. They were both correct.

I have added this pataki for a reason, in our discussion tonight I will make my reason clear!

A kò gbọdọ̀ torí kòkòrò kó síni lójú, ká wá ki igi bọ ojú náà /
One shouldn’t poke a stick into one’s eye simply because an insect entered it.

[Be moderate; adopt extreme measures with caution]

All religions are valid as long as it teaches peace and love…..Obara Meji!

 

There are no disappointments in life, only lessons learned…..Obara Meji

Yes mi breddren YW you understood my question and answered. Indeed there is power in having sex and abstaining. There is just something so alluring about the body. Many a great men have fallen to the power of women (and lust)…

Even today you have suicide bombers that commit these atrocious acts so that they will be rewarded with 7 virgins in the next life..There is something more to sex than just a release. (Ok, continuing my read)…

“…Revolts must come in order to have progress, which is why
questioning must continue.”

i do believe this to be true…

MTH, i have often questioned why slavery happened and its purpose…i must admit I cannot see the big picture…many will say that is was a way to sow mama Africa’s seeds to foreign lands, to establish her children elsewhere…other will say it build new countries and continents…

some may say that it brought slaves closer to God, for they lost all but GOD…

when i say my ibas and honor my ancestors, i call on all before me who endured slavery and I sometimes tear up…

MTH, i think that pg7, paragraph one reinterates the fact that we have free will…many things can weaken our spiritual and psychological powers…

Ty

Questions from Mth, emailed to me earlier in case she could not get connected 1.Pg 7 the first paragraph spoke about giving into sexual desires. I have linked it somewhat to David and Bathsheba. My question is can one do things to weaken their spiritual & psychological powers…(Just renforce the point of not sleeping around as you transfer a part of your being to your partner)… 2. Pg7 last paragraph, When present stability is disturbed that we can move forward else we stagnate and die..Revolts must come…continue. I have liken Hitler and his terror to society as a was that… Read more »

I love that the author states: “Esu “does not see into the hearts of men,/Only their actions.”

it reinforces that he is devoid of emotions…

The line that says, ” if a knowledge must be carried forward something must come and disturb the present stability. .else we stagnate and die. Revolt must come in order to have progress. Can’t we look at that as speaking to an “internal revolution” as well. After examining ourselves , we have to ‘overcome’ ourselves and that is the self/ outlook that was created by the indoctrination/conditioning/conformity that impacted us negatively. Each person is responsible to deal with those issues before moving towarda progress. Dat mek sense?

I believe we all suffer from the disease of self hate, it shows its “face” (the symptoms you have it) many ways but the illness is the same no matter the country.

Courtney

We in the Bahamas are disconnected also. Because of our close proximity to America we do not have strong ties to Africa or it’s traditions. We have undercurrents but we have a long way to go.

Nyaha

Nyaha

We, people of African descent and Black people globally (Australians, people from Fiji, Vanuatu etc) have been force feed so much negativity about who we are and our culture that some of us choose to believe it and separate ourselves from it. Like the pataki above, one side is trying to say we are this and the other side is saying no we are that.

I think that there is a disconnect from Africa and being African. Even in the continent.

I must go to Africa…and when i do, i will have to learn the language, culture and traditions…

there are many who have the same slavery background as me and have no thought of Africa..they believe all that they see on tv and embrace their white lineage..

Ty, me notice that the author…again, jump pass Haitian and Jamaica freedom fighters to mention Malcolm x and rah…Martin and Malcolm x was a “mouth” fighter not a revolutionist to me. Che and Fidel draw blood and that is true revolution fighters to me. Me a nit pik…lol
