This is known as a shadow person, or shadow folk. Some say they are ghosts of people who passed away and have not crossed over into the light. Some say they are lost souls
wandering the earth. Some folks consider them evil saying they are demons. Some folks even claim they have seen the shadow people with red glowing eyes, while some say they are just a figment of our imagination. Shadow folk mostly appear when it's dark, hiding in corners and crevices. They move about swiftly, and… Continue

And the really big frustration of most is this truth; the majority of motives are hidden deep into the unconscious! So how do we know what ours and others motives are? There are only two ways…..watch and wait for the results! ‘By the fruit (result) we know them (motive.) the other way is to learn how to discern truth for ourselves. We have been told for thousands and thousands of years WHAT to believe and never taught HOW to discern truth for ourselves. Now, there is a way to know how BEFORE… Continue

What every person seeks, searches, aches and yearns for… is to fall in love. To REALLY fall in love. To find that special ‘someone’ who sees, knows, accepts and loves them in a profound way and be able to give the same in return. We have been told that that incredibly heady and highly desirable experience and feeling, is NOT real and is only fleeting infatuation. But the truth is it is that this experience is the ONLY thing that IS real. It is the moment in which we see and reflect the highest… Continue

“Whites almost never put themselves under the same microscope that Blacks and Latinos are routinely subjected to."
Republican Party darling Mike Huckabee, during a recent speech, decided to dispense some tough love to a predominantly white audience when he voiced his concerns about the state of affairs in American white communities.
"The epidemic of whites involved in drunk-driving fatality accidents is deplorable," Huckabee said. He cited… Continue

The best gift you can give is to give of yourself. Your time, your attention, your love and caring are far more valuable than anything that could be wrapped up in a brightly colored box.
When you give of yourself you discover how very effective you can be. When you give of yourself someone else receives great benefit, and so do you.
Give a little kindness, or patience, or understanding or love. Give encouragement, and attention, and assistance, and time.

“It is a wise father that knows his own child”
Our young men are being taken away at an alarming rate, either being killed or incarcerated. The recent Real Talk.. Real Change, Black Male Symposium and Boys2Men Symposium address similar issues. We see more shootings that are claiming the lives of those who should have a promising future ahead of them and young black males not being responsible. Young men such as these fell at the hands of… Continue

Could African American children who are demonstrating low academic proficiency in schools across America, be rebelling against indoctrinated methods of teaching unconsciously or consciously?
When we closely examine the history of education for African Americans during the time of slavery, they were not allowed to read or write for fear of death. When the Native Americans lost their land during the conquest of Europeans (manifest destiny), their children were taken away and placed in… Continue

I decided to share this information regarding "Philosophy for Children" because this is an area of education that is systematically left out of the process of learning. In ancient Kemet (Egypt, Sais, Ethiopia, Al-Kebulan), philosophy was as integral a part of learning, just as much as math, science, language and so on. In the past, European rulers did not regard such knowledge as important to the masses of society and especially children. If you remember your Greek history, Socrates was… Continue

A lot of successful programs have developed over the year in the area of reading. In affluent communities babies are practically given a book and flash cards once they're out of the womb. Reading programs such as "My Baby Can Read", created by Dr. Robert Tizer, an expert in infant development and others, have demonstrated that babies have the propensity to learn complexes words very early in their developmental stage than had been expected.
At such an… Continue

To introduce an education reform model that is conducive to student learning today must have parental support and the cooperative effort of after school programs in the community. It appears that children are not learning because they are not meeting the standardized requirements for academic success set by State Education departments. However, children are learning at an accelerated rate without proper guidance and direction on how to decipher massive quantities of information they are… Continue

I came across this topic above in the E-News called ROOTS. I found the responds to be very interesting and thought it would be a great discussion here. I've enclosed my responds below and look forward to what others have to say.
What is apparent to me in over 30 years in education, that children respond to those who demonstrate a sincere interest in their well being. Time and attention with a child are the overwhelming factors in determining academic success. Children, just as… Continue

Those were the first words Henry “Discombobulating” Jones uttered when he first saw the caged mayhem known as ‘Mixed Martial Arts’–UFC style. Kneeing someone in the face, choking them out, roundhouse kicks to the temple? The damage done is more serious than in any other sport. He said, “Therein lays the appeal!”

Have you noticed that most people are growing in fear? The anxiety and subsequent increased dis-ease (particularly heart attacks in younger and younger people) are increasing every single day! Have you sensed that you could not do in one hour today, what you could do in one hour a year ago or more and that things are just getting more chaotic and frantic? I can show you, on a scientific level, just how the two are very much related and how this can be… Continue
