- The body is both a reflection and an expression of the mind and soul. Therefore, the body is to be used to both develop ones soul and mind until ultimately the body dissolves into complete energy, awareness, and congruence with the mind and the soul. Meditation is a means of transforming the mind with the use of the body with breathing techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional stability, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. Exercise is meant to channel ones energy and intent while forcing the body to perform beyond its natural limitations. Diet is employed to increase longevity and support ones intent with natural supplementation.
- The spirit is NOT religion, but the non-physical seat of ones character, emotion, and intent. The spirit of a peoples are manifested by their policies and politics, by their empathy – or lack thereof , by their relationship to one another, and is reflected in their music, art, and and writings. Without the unification of the spirit of our peoples, we cannot have an effective physical unification.
- The intellect, and the application of ones intellect within ones career must be built upon a foundation of Afrocentric thought. The Afrocentric school of thought is the first contemporary intellectual movement initiated by African scholars that has currency on a broad scale for renewal and renaissance. It did not emerge inside the traditional white academic centers but In the cultural context of the African community seeking to assert itself.
- The family unit is as important to the Black nation as the unity of cells within the human body. Each unit must be bonded in mutual support, defense, and care of one another. The family extends beyond the four walls of ones household, and encompasses the whole of the Pan-African diaspora.
- Finances and resources can mean hard currency, land, tools, human capital (as in ones network), transportation, and methodologies (as in corporations and collectives). When ones finances and resources are marshalled to both meet the needs and demands of ones self, ones family, and ones people, and these resources belong to the individual, and are created by the individual, then one can be called conscious. Failure to meet ones own needs, or the needs of ones family and ones nation leads to destruction. Poverty is, as Marcus Garvey explains, "a hellish state to be in… It is a crime. To be poor, is to be hungry without possible hope of food; to be sick without hope of medicine; to be tired and sleepy without a place to lay one's head; to be naked without the hope of clothing; to be despised and comfortless. To be poor is to be a fit subject for crime and hell…. to him there is no other course but sin and death."
Lead by Your Example
"I think every person that calls themselves a leader, a preacher, a policy maker of any kind should ask and answer the question in his own life time, how will my people stay on this earth? How will they be educated? How will they be schooled? How will they be housed? And how will they be defended? The answer to these questions will create the concept of enduring nationhood because it creates the concept of enduring responsibility. I am saying what ever the solution is, either we are in charge of our own destiny or we are not in charge. On that point we got to be clear, you either free or you a slave."
