an egg, a woman teaching!

Maat Petrova's extraordinary beauty is an intangible visible, not by will, but by force of her perception.

hand of Màat Petrova.

"... The intertwining of stories of the egg, Adinkra symbolism, the beauty of cared for hands, color, alignment with what is good about beauty, wonderful about being in the air, and being a woman teaching other women the deeper things about their wombs!

What a movement in the stillness of this moment..." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories (Dawn Wolf)

How powerful a teaching! Would that more daughters are taught by the Wise Women these arts!
This is my long time wish, and concern, as a father, as a man. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories

Maat Petrova seated in a Botanical Garden enjoying how the butterflies, she says, love her! She is a Goddess retrieved by Spirit from crudeness surrounding her that cannot help but be transformed by her understanding, and relationship with her womb. This is a 'something' inherent within women born of a woman. Devoid of relationship with this power set women are making no real strides towards empowerment. Ignorance of this numbs women and girls they have birthed. The lack of real knowledge of self abandons the womb. But, do they care?

Wrong question. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 8/16/17 

In the wisp of a moment...

Unmistakable beauty of solitude.

the 53%! Who dey is?

Michael Scipio is a very thoughtful man I respect for his short introspective pieces spanning the great contradictions of American life. He is skilled at asking the right questions. This day, as a challenge to thought he asked questions against a photograph of white women and their men, who were Klansmen at a rally. He wrote:

"Exhibit umpteen hundred: We all experience social learning, but questions remain. Are these women being oppressed? Are they being unduly coerced against their will to participate, essentially rendering them victims of white patriarchy? Or do they have adequate agency, the ability to make good rational choices? Are they willing participants in advancing white supremacy? Who are the 53% of white women that voted for Trump? Will you please stand up and tell me how you really feel..." 

Those are good questions, I answer, but they give these white women a way out of the equation. They don't get an out because in the 21st century apologizing has become the extend of 'understanding' or 'addressing' complex racial beliefs and the violence, which is the language of white supremacy. You can't remove these white women from either side because the benefits of the military branch of white conquest and domination is the Klan and other similar groups. They protect all white Americans. The new nuances of color politics are of no consideration.

Now the last question: "Who are the 53% of white women that voted for Trump?" That is the only question to weigh. We know the answers to the other ones. Our ancestors and parents taught us of the darker hue everything about white Americans, their practices and beliefs and how to have a chance to excel. If we wanted to simply exist there were always methods. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 10/16/17

What Thrives in the States

Freedom contradiction. This is one of the great, deep and tragic misconceptions of white American thought patterns...

"There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody." ~ Rush Limbaugh

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me." ~ Martin Niemoller

Two Ailments of American Life.

Miles Davis after being beaten by New York city police August 25, 1959 and released on bond.

Why We Raise the Fist. Why we sit. Why we kneel. Did you know Miles Davis was the victim of police brutality? Every week the same refrain 'they brought it on themselves'. 'If only they would have complied' - dot dot dot. That uppity negro.

On August 25, 1959 in New York City, Miles Davis was beaten and arrested by the police, for SWB (standing while black) in front of the nightclub Birdland.

...A white police officer, Gerald Gilduff, ordered Miles to “move on.” Davis replied, “Move on, for what?" While engaged with the initial officer another policeman comes up and hits Miles in the head with a billy club. Miles would write later in his autobiography "Blood was running down the khaki suit I had on." Witnesses said Detective Donald Rolker hit Davis many times. Approximately a dozen witnesses stated Detective Rolker was drunk at the time of the incident.

Miles eventually posted $1,000 bail for his release pending trial. He was charged with third degree assault and disorderly conduct. You know what Malcolm X said, ~ " They put their club upside your head. And then turn around and accuse you of attacking them... They attack you, bust you all upside your mouth, and then take you to court and charge you with assault... "

Eventually, Miles was exonerated. From the trial a piercing succinct commentary, "It would be a travesty on justice to adjudge the victim of an illegal arrest guilty of the crime of assaulting the one who made the arrest." Justices Grassman, Dunaif and Richman cleared then 33 year old Davis after an all day trial." - Michael Scipio 

Rose McGowan, actress accusing Weinstein of raping her. . .

The actor Rose McGowan has said she was “blacklisted” because she “got raped”...[ “All of you Hollywood 'A-list' golden boys are LIARS,” she tweeted..

“You lie,” she told Ben Affleck, alleging that the actor had known about Weinstein’s behavior for years.]

McGowan is one of more than 30 women who have come forward since the New York Times revealed sexual harassment and rape allegations against W...einstein going back decades. In a series of tweets last week she also accused Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios, of ignoring her when she made the allegation earlier.

Weinstein reached a settlement with McGowan when she was 23 years old [The New York Times reported that she received a $100,000 payment from Weinstein in 1997; the settlement included a confidentiality agreement prohibiting her from discussing the incident, which allegedly occurred in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival.]"



from within: the Sacred Triangle

Sacred Geometry - Cosmic Eye with Tube Torus

Sacredness is gently placed upon and within Stefania Ferrario the way impulse
aligns the heartbeat with release. Is this lust? - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 6.2.17

"Prayer in faith in the belief of reverence is learned, if one forgot the basis tenets of holy life, we are born into from our mother's wombs we are taught to devalue in Western countries." - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 6.2.17

Bald head, naked body of Katoucha speaks of,
and to strength. Is this lust?

An astonishing explosion of power from within comes from this woman, and many women of the darker hue, who have developed powers. It isn't lust. Her presence and composure doesn't even demand respect; it comes from that place and more that is incomprehensible to the crude amongst us. If a man cannot respect her clothed or not, the fault is in his character ill-informed and badly taught. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories [6/2/17]

Julia & Juliette

Ana Cheri's staggering beauty!!!!
As a caption to this moment she wrote, 'This crazy little thing called love! Have a great day! In response Anthony Love wrote, :I'm sorry, but there is no love. I just want to get in between the top👆🏽and bottom👇🏽split."

Maybe it was ten years ago. Rev. Sinclair Grey III and I facilitated rites-of-passage ceremonies and teaching circles together for an organization, Progressive Lives, in Washington DC. Later we worked with the Empowerment Center, now out of Landover, Maryland. Sinclair has long left this work, but the work we did those years ago had powerful effects upon us, and deepened not only our friendship, but our manhood testing our capacity to care and share with Black boys out of synch with the natural world and its expectations of masculinity and manhood.

One of the aspects of training a boy is the way one penetrates the sexual dynamic of each boy. Of the many ways to do this Sinclair's knack for asking the right questions to do just that came into play when he asked a group of boys from the Black upper middle class of Prince George's county in Maryland a profound question.

"If there was a girl in your neighborhood, and she was Beyoncé fine and everybody knew she got around, but she was phat tuh death, and she said you could hit 'it' and even ride it bare back (meaning without a condom). Would you?"

With the exception of one every one of those said, "Hell yeah! I hit that! You mean we could ride it bare back? Oh, hell yeah!"

We exchanged looks. Sinclair took in some air. This was a dousy.

"Now, listen. If this chick. Beyoncé fine gave up the booty to any of you and you could sleep with her with no condom and you know she's HIV positive you would hit that? You'd jump all over that?"

With the exception of one their excitement went through the top of their heads. They all would.

Sinclair and I looked into each other's eyes. We couldn't believe this. We were stupefied. This was followed by twenty minutes of dialogue before one by one the boys were hit by the profundity of what they saw arise from within themselves. It was sobering for all. But, the one kid who refused to participate, or buckle under the peer pressure was unmoved by any of it. In his words he said it wasn't worth it to lose his life for one moment of pleasure. It didn't make sense to him.

Everybody was changed by this one question. Now, this story, I will call the Beyoncé story, is connected to Ana Cheri.

Ana Cheri is a staggering beauty. She is dynamic. Once she modeled for Playboy. Now, she is a successful fitness trainer. She models in the style of her generation using the multi-services of the internet to campaign, to make herself known and to expand her 'brand'. The most striking photograph of hers I saw amongst her portfolio she was wearing a cleverly designed black dress accented by the lacing of black heels gracing her pretty feet. She wore a wide brim hat in a humble way that allowed the eye to enjoy the way her hair fell upon her shoulders to rest atop her amble breasts peaking from the four buttons unbuttoned beneath her neckline. She appears to be in the wide open space of an art gallery with the photographs of famous Black singers and entertainers covering the wall behind her just out of focus. As a caption to this moment she wrote, 'This crazy little thing called love! Have a great day!"

With words I have painted a wonderful moment anybody would appreciate and enjoy having themselves because feeling beautiful and wonderful and doing what you love the most is profoundly gratifying. It liberates in its own special way. Such moments are celebratory, but in this story scores and scores of men poured out a stream of profane images into cyberspace her direction. The images in their words emerged from their perceptions of what I just saw and shared with you. For example:

Andy Bustamante said, Y'all fucking gay be real. I'd eat her ass and get her pregnant on life. She ain't safe no where. Give me 5 seconds. That's all I need son to breed her. I'm not there to fuck around. Life's too short to be worrying about her satisfacfion.

Anthony Love: I'm sorry, but there is no love. I just want to get in between the top👆🏽and bottom👇🏽split.

It is a deep sadness that reaches me, even though I know these are common reactions and fantasies men have longing for women, because I have daughters and other women in my life important to me who by natural law are subject to these impulses. Thankfully, most of them cannot be worked out. But, on the other hand it is disingenuous of me to position myself aloof as if I am a guru high atop a ledge in a mountain range somewhere in China, or a remote area of Yellowstone National Park because the fundamental fact of our nature is sexual urges. The responses to sexual stimulation are different online because people are writing them down and cyberspace has a level of permanence alive in the machines. What is in the heart remains in the heart, the imaginations of both men and women wanting sex with each other. So, the question: what determines evil: dreaming of it, or being the dream of the opposite sex? is on the table for thought and discussion.

Well, there are the examples and what rivals the story of Beyoncé and the boys is this short one taken from the endless comments of men reacting to former Playboy model Ana Cheri in her Playboy garb last December. One man, who calls himself Sherazz Bhuttah said these words: "Ana, I would drag my balls through 1 million miles of broken glass across the Sahara desert with Rosie O'Donnell's queef as my only air supply just to get a whiff of your panties after they had been donated to a thrift store and used as a cum rag by a HIV positive homeless man.!"

Some of the responses came quickly giving scope to the subject of evil. Rafiq Dawood responded saying, "You my friend need help from the experts Sheraz. Just try therapy because your message you posted is very sick and too dirty even for adults not even kids to read on Facebook. So you shouldn't post those types of comments on this website just keep it to yourself all of your sexual thoughts or ideas. It's actually very twisted even just for likes, your mind is very dirty just more than the normal human being so that's unusual and not healthy at all."

Sherazz answered. "And you are...?"

Ryan Cotter, a guitarist and a worker at Cheesecake Factory matter-of- factly said, "Rafiq Dawood damn if you think that's unhealthy just wait til you hear what I wanna do to you. This comment will have the bitches drippin wet and blowing up ur inbox fa sho!"

Xaris Goldmouthallreadys chimed in. "Rafiq Dawood i think he is exaggerating to emphasize his desire, some will find this expression inspired and poetic, but anyway, when u see a picture sexist as this u re meant to express your sexual thoughts." DeSean Perez said, "I aint even mad. I'm impressed." Chris Ortiz said, "That was impressive."

If this ain't evil who is safe?

To understand one has to not only plunge into his/her darkness, but the darkness of the shadows of the culture and belief structures shaping your family, your community, your country, your culture. To see the light and hold the hope of enlightenment the darkness has to be probed. If the darkness is yours and within you and a lot is in there; you need the fear to be courageous enough to move into the darkness with the purpose to resurrect Life the way Jesus did from the underworld during the three days of his death from the Earth plane.

This is the calling of life-death-resurrection. It incapacitates. It dares us and it makes it clear that this process is the process to conquer death, not for its capacity for alienation, but release from the fear and the dread of it simultaneously strengthening the need to make an alliance with death to enhance and deepen your life. This is the great mystery sexual energies penetrate.

Ana Cheri said, 'I love traveling, but I'll always be a Cali girl.'

"I'm originally from San Diego, born and raise till the age of 25, but I must say; love me the east coast. So many places to see in such a short drive; especially if you live ine the middle like me. I can swim in the gulf, or visit the outter banks, spen a weekend in NYC or bask in the Florida Sun. Mountains, beaches, lakes, rivers, urban living and country time resting, and lets not forget if your a history buff like me then; there is no comparison as to all the places you can go.

But I still love the 619 till I die! Arriva la Raza, y el que se raje pierde...

IN the Community of Now, Tomorrow!

The observation, Hebert Simon made: "A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention." collaborates with the notion that information is power. I don't subscribe to the latter because it is disconnected from the heart, which is the center of intelligence. Those who are alive should adjust themselves to understand that how one uses information indicates one's relationship with power. If people are outside of the possibilities of becoming powerful, or more importantly; in relationship with their death there isn't a chance at depth in one's life! 

I believe Hebert Simon is looking closely at the first generation growing up online, seeing how fragmented these children are under the age of forty. It is a strange lifestyle developing from an old European paradigm that develops deficiency in the ability to pay attention. It is also by design being ignorant of the intricacies of maturing, at each level: emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually! To remove yourself from this paradigm requires the right questions to unravel the dominating stories of one's life.

First question: "When is enough, enough?"
Second question: "Do I want to live deeply?"
Third question: "What is my spiritual responsibility?"
Fourth question: "If I change, who and what changes?"

Stand Up for. . .

Seeing young Black athletes, on their knees during the patriotic tributes to the myths of the U.S., makes me feel strong pride buffered by the flaw of Black thinking and fortitude: the collective fear of white people. I can't loose myself into the role of a spectator, where most live, and not feel the pattern embedded in the consciousness of 'money over principal' struggling. These young athletes are not made with the strength of struggle their grandparents had at their age, nor were they steered to be protectors, or taught the fine art of being impeccable aligned with the essentials that support the indifference of a warrior that connects him to the essentials a man needs to be one of knowledge, of power!

In short, I don't believe they know how to make a true stand and will tremble if their owners tell them not to protest for the better good of their people! If it happens will the Black sports fans follow suit and stop supporting the business?

Now, that I don't believe will happen. It is too hard to tear away from those who control the images dominating Black Americans! . . .

What Do You Stand For & Stand Against?

[The] Flag of a country in internal conflict with its meaning. Its definition of freedom is contradicted by its limits to freedom, and misuse of the word to take from others land and life.
