A BROADER LOOK AT ANCESTRAL WORSHIP

I once had a great conversation with someone about God. I don't remember who the person was but I remember what we spoke of. Regardless of culture and where ever humans are, how contemporary or how primitive a culture may be, the concept of "God" is there. ...

BAD ANCESTORS – DO I VENERATE THEM?

The subject of death is scary to most people. It is a topic I have explored here on this site more than once, but have had comments which showed an unwillingness to venture deeper into the subject. When I was a child I feared death as I think most people do. I could never understand how some people took their lives or lived their life in such a risky way that death was sure to find them. The greatest thing that happened to me was when it became time for me to wake up. ...

THE SPIRITUALITY OF JAMAICA PT. 1

  In Jamaica's history there are many stories about different people. Some who are hailed as "heroes" who have contributed something great spiritually to our history and culture. Among these people is the famed Nanny of the Maroons, Three Fingered Jack, and others. As a child, I felt the spirituality of my country. Of course I had no idea what I felt but also I had no idea that I was a citizen on a very small island in the Caribbean with less than 3 million people. Jamaica seemed large to me, not large in population or geographically, but it seemed to radiate something bigger, something of which possibly could be described as spirit. ...

CLARIFICATION ON DIVINATION AND ALL THAT IT INVOLVES

Divination, readings, or consultations, through spirit or oracle has been done for centuries. Within every culture and society there is a spiritual system set in place. Seers although ridiculed and condemned by the Christian church  and other religions have always been an integral part of every society, though respected, but often unappreciated and even in the bible the prophet Samuel was a most important one. As I always teach here on this blog, it is important for every human being to consult a diviner at least every 21 days. This number 21 has a specific meaning which I will get into later. ...
