Sistahs, do you ever have one of those days where when you hear the birds singing and just by their tone you know it is going to be a bright, sunny and light day? A day that folks where I live say - I think I want to go to the beach - be by the ocean, feel the sun on my face.
Sistahs, who came up with the idea of perfection? Who decided what was defined as perfect? Do you ever get up and look in the mirror and just LOVE who you are? When was the last time you walked around naked like the day you were born - being free to be who you are? Some folks haven't been naked in a while - they always seem to be rushing to 'put something on...'
Ever look at Sistahs in indigenous communities who can walk around without clothing? I always think to myself, "wow, this Sistahs's world is so safe and accepting...nothing and no one is telling her she needs to be ashamed or covered..." It is funny that those closest to nature - to the natural way they were born are labeled 'primitive' and one of the dictionary meanings of the word is "...pertaining to the beginning or origin." I am currently reading a book by Mama Zogbe' called Sibyls: The First Prophetess of Mami Wata. One of the first lines says, "African women are the only women in the world who Ancient Mothers were not born under the yoke of patriarchy. During ancient times, for the first 6,000 years, Africa was ruled by a powerful order of matriarchs." Just sit with that information and its implications...
We already know that Africa was the cradle of civilization, meaning all human being started there and migrated out...The oldest found remains of a humanoid being 4.4 million years old are of a female named Ardi, an Afar name meaning "ground floor" and the "root". Breath and sit with this... By the way Ardi is older than "Lucy" or her proper name Dinkenesh,” meaning “You are beautiful” or "you are wonderful" in Amharic, who lived some 3.2 million years ago... Both found in Africa... Just take this in...Lastly, inside each human being on this planet is a portion of the DNA inside these Ancient Mothers...
Sistahs, I say all this so you know that our history or better yet our Herstory is untold and suppressed. As we unfold and get to know and LOVE ourselves the encoded messages of our Ancient Mother SistahGoddesses will be revealed. We will be drawn towards the truth of who were are and from there I only see GREAT, POWERFUL things happening. Balance will be restored. Until that time we continue to uplift each other and chip away at the illusions.
Today, if just for a moment, be naked - look at yourself and see the truth of who you are - beautiful, Ancient, powerful and worthy.
