The Adventurous Life…

 

The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. It is unafraid of what other people think…It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books. It develops its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscience. The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone. — Raymond B. Fosdick

 

The Drum…

It is the expansion and contraction in the universe that produces the vibration and the pulsation that causes life to be; and that’s why the drum is such a powerful instrument in Africa, because the drum represents the notion of the initial vibration energy; that every vibration you make is perpetuated throughout time…it never ceases to be. -Prof James Small

Of Suffering…

Many today teach relief of suffering through ego annihilation. They are focused on relieving the suffering of the Self. In the new age quest to escape the ego, they have found themselves consumed by it.

We are here not to relieve our own suffering but instead to relieve the suffering of our fellow man.

Ritual…

What food is to our body, ritual is to our soul. A ritual keeps us connected to our spirit, our soul and our purpose. Rituals are also activities in which we call the spirits of our ancestors to come forward. Our ancestors can see cross-dimensionally, which means they can help us to plot our course. For example, they can help us connect the [energetic] wires that have become loose within us so that we can regain our health or our consciousness.  Sobonfu Somé
