Thanks Beloved Madala Baba Fronse.

My question is, what happens to the older feminine gender, they who WISDOM resides in?

An Elder/older being both genders, if they have never learned Divine Knowledge, under/inner/over standing (Wisdom), never learned this, that Library needs to burn down. All Elders/older beings aren't True Elders/older beings.

by R. C. BECKOM -R.C.'s proverb: "If you don't know what you're up against, You can't know what to do about it!  You will only find yourself going thru the emotions of the situation."

I totally agree.

"The one who throws the stone forgets; the one who is hit remembers forever." - Angolan Proverb

Now there is a similar 'Mississippi Proverb' : Throw the rock, hide the hand.

"Know that you have a role to play in the universe. The ancestors are asking you to be open to that role - and to do your very best to fulfill it. And if you're not sure what your role is, the ancestors are saying 'be patient" because in time you will. And when that role is revealed, so many things in your life that might not make sense now, will start to make sense. You'll understand why you had to experience certain things, and why certain people came into your life and why they had to leave. You'll understand everything you've been thinking, hearing, dreaming, seeing and feeling! And It will become clear, why you were born where you were born, why you live where you live now, and what your very next spiritual mission will be. The events of your life are not random; they only appear random to those who cannot see, hear or feel the higher order and force that gives life, order and meaning to all things." - James Weeks/ Across The King's River
Comment by Madala Baba Fronse on April 6, 2013 at 6:16pm

A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no
battle unless there be two." - Seneca

BY THE SCARS WE SHALL KNOW AND BE KNOWN. There is no Easter without scars to show. It is impossible to deal with the idea of scars without making reference to the crises or situations from which they are acquired. The Agikuyu (of Central Kenya) have a proverb that says “Mwana muugiti ndagaga ruhara” literary translated as “a quarrelsome/provocative child is rarely without scars.”
