Know your purpose

Daughters and Sons of AFURAKA, dwell on this question today: “Do you KNOW your purpose?”

  1. If you do – GREAT! Then, what are you doing to keep it in shape, align every aspect of your life with it and how does Afrika/Afrikans benefit from it, sustainably? Having a purpose is not an achievement, it is an orientation of grounded direction; Holistic Warrior Fitness. You are supposed to provide leadership, role model hood, militant healing and fearless innovation.
  2. If you not sure – CAUSE FOR CONCERN! But, what are you doing to find it, understand it, reveal it and own it? Knowing your purpose is a result of a process, so unless you WALK and EXPLORE, it can never manifest. Blackness – despite all its beauty and might – has become an inherent wall, blocking you from full Self Knowledge. Yet, the concern is no longer whether you are confused, but what you are doing to un-confuse your Self.
  3. If you don’t know – DISASTER! You are a complete danger to yourself and every person surrounding you. Do not panic and do not fall into self shame & blame. There is a systematic machinery on 24/7 operation to ensure this should be your final destination. But, your AFRIKAN WILL must oppose it. If you have no clue where to start looking for purpose, take a deeeeep, long look at OUR PEOPLE – your purpose is written all over their faces. GET UP. STAND UP. WALK.

Daughters of Dust, Sons of Rock – spend every day assembling pieces of the shattered, Black Self. Know it and push it to be in constant exchange with the Afrikan Collective. Afrika has no need, nor space, for you to JUST live for you.

So…. do YOU know your p-u-r-p-o-s-e…..?
