A Giving That Transcends

In the eyes of the Earth Center’s founder, Neb Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig, service to the community is of utmost importance. Along with his primary mission – aimed to provide a bridge in which colonized people can access the traditional, initiatic knowledge of our Kemetic Ancestors – he particularly expressed a desire to see the organization spearheading charitable work, including food and clothing drives on a regular basis. Neb Naba often emphasized the importance of humility and the positive effect that it has on one’s quality as a human being. He stressed the concept of service within a communal environment; an interdependency among members of the community was the Ancestral way that sustained human life and civilization for over 150,00 years.

As humble servants of humanity, on 29 Tepia 415 (February 6th , 2016), the Earth Center continued this mission – running a food and clothing drive from the Chicago Earth Center storefront location with our partner for this event, Betty Shabazz Academy International Charter Schools, serving as a drop-off location on Chicago’s south side. Through this partnership and the hard work of initiates, the Chicago Earth Center was able to provide clothing, non-perishable foods, hot soup and bread to families in need this winter season.

I remember talking about the concept of initiation and why every spirit that comes to life needs to be initiated into life. I was saying that it is important to understand that the initiatic system put together by our Ancestors is intended for the youth, meaning any young people between the age of 6 to 13. Every life that reincarnates into the realities of our terrestrial dimension has to be equipped with the necessary means in order to face the destiny they have come to achieve, as these young boys and girls are one day going to be responsible for the becoming and the preservation of the society that watched their birth. Every traditional society preserves itself and its achievements by regenerating its long understood principles through its youth. Unlike the old traditions, new societies that are claiming to be modern (having no values and principles), have so soon violated and forgotten these basic principles of human life while sacrificing the fate of their modern youth; the same youth that are supposed to be the future of the society.

Community Gardens in Chicago

Growing Power’s 3 acre urban farm in Chicago’s Altgeld Gardens.

Food is one of the most vital and basic necessities for any human being. Yet, today, too many Americans are lacking knowledge and/or interest about how to grow it for themselves. The dramatic disconnect between humans and food, the very thing that supports our existence, puts so many people, knowingly or not, in a vulnerable situation. This over-dependency on our industrial food system to provide one’s sustenance has dire consequences. Furthermore, modern convenience such as food delivery services, grocery shopping services, etc. continue to feed this handicap.

We say that life evolves as a cycle.  That which was lost today may be found tomorrow. At The Earth Center, we are working to reclaim what was lost to so many of us. For years, people of the modern societies have been pursuing what is easy and comfortable, thinking that we will gain something from it. The only thing we have succeeded in doing is corrupting ourselves. Through that corruption, we have seen our rapid descent down the path of self-destruction.

We are returning to the concept that the most valuable things in our lives are the things we must work the hardest to achieve. Initiation is the most valuable tool for the individual seeking spiritual evolution. Initiation presents us with the reality of both our human origins and our human condition.

Internal Cleansing Of The Body

Omisona-Offering

Routine cleasing can lessen the chance of these issues becoming life-threatening. Herbal remedies have been used for tens of thousands of years with great success.

Many people do not realize that the body itself requires maintenance. It is not enough to “eat healthy” or “exercise regularly.” If you do not cleanse your internal organs once in awhile, your body will run into “health problems” at some point, regardless of how “healthy” you think you are. Maybe you’ve developed a pattern of headaches over the years, or maybe you’ve come to expect stomach problems after a meal. Perhaps you’ve had abscesses on your skin, a constant itch in your armpits, or you’ve been ignoring a slight cough that never went away. There are many more signs one can look out for, and many different reasons that could be behind these symptoms, but oftentimes it is from neglecting one’s internal cleansing.
