Bahitawi, The Hermits of Ethiopia

Citydesert

Bahitawi 1
“The bahtawi are an independent class of hermits who represent the anchoritic tradition – modern successors of St John the Baptist rebuking all including the emperor himself without fear or favour. As Shimei reviled King David, so the bahtawi have been know to hurl abuse at all and sundry including the emperor. Some live completely separately from society, unseen by all, their bones occasionally discovered after their deaths in the remotest of places. Others lived in trees (dendrites) or small holes in the ground. Often they live on leaves and bitter roots and reduce sleep to an absolute minimum. (One who had found his way to New York was taken to a mental institution after being found praying half-naked in the snow!).Those living in wilderness zones on the edge of the empire had the effect of
expanding the empire because they invariably attracted followers.”

ImHotep and Alchemy

Egyptian Oracle Readings

There are lots of stories about alchemy, and where it started. To be honest I do not know the truth, and no one alive does. I do know that alchemy has deep roots in many cultures, one of them being Egypt.

A core teaching in Alchemy comes from the Emerald Tablet. This text is credited to Hermes Trismegistus, but really no one knows who he is or if this is true.

A long time ago, I heard a story. This was so very long ago that I do not know who told me this story. Now, many years later I have searched the internet and I can not find this story anywhere. It was told to me in person, but I really just cannot remember who told it to me. I make no promises of the facts to this, and really all involved have been dead so long it is really hard…

Levi H. Dowling’s the Aquarian Gospel

Whatshotn

The Aquarian Gospel is a false teaching by Levi H. Dowling. It does not give an accurate account of the life and true teachings of Jesus Christ. There are several books that claim to tell about the parts of Jesus’ life that are “missing” from the Bible. None of these are credible as only the Word of God is infallible and accurately portrays Jesus’ life and teachings. Many people try to take the truth of the Bible and distort it. This is the work of the enemy. The Aquarian Gospel is a contradictory mixture of Christian Science, New Age and occult beliefs. Some of the material in the Aquarian Gospel is borrowed from the ancient Gospel of James, a well-known forgery from the early years of the church.

Aquarian-Gospel-whatshotnThere are many contradictions and inaccuracies in the Aquarian Gospel. The book begins with an historical inaccuracy: “Augustus Caesar reigned…

Understanding Garveyism by: Shaka Barak

Our Voice Our Generation Our Truth

Garveyism and Education

“The time has come for the Negro (African) to forget and cast behind him, his hero worship and adoration of other races and to start out immediately to create and emulate heroes of his own.” Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, 1925 African Fundamentalism

The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey born August 17th 1887, Jamaica, Caribbean is one of if not the greatest leader the African race has had in the last 150 years. Garveyism is Universal African Nationalism that has lead the fight for a place for African centricity, which is an intellectual category that allows us to view social and human reality from an African perspective or stand point. Through Garveyism African-centricity will be used to focus on the cultural and human quality of African thought and practice. African centricity will combat Euro centrism, which is, academic terrorism and an ideology and practice of domination/banditry that is based…

Ethiopia: Diaspora Policy Document

ሀገር ፍቅር - Hager Fiqir

There is a new Diaspora Policy document that the Ethiopian government is circulating. In my opinion, the most important thing for this (or any other) Ethiopian government to do on this issue is to allow Ethiopians to retain their citizenship by opening the door for dual citizenship (constitutionally). This creates the necessary incentives for Ethiopians to remain engaged in events in their home country and to retain their Ethiopian identity even generations later.

Currently, the government has adopted another strategy (the Yellow card) to give certain rights to people of Ethiopian origin. I think there are serious problems with that path. To start, it essentially makes people report that they have adopted another citizenship in exchange for those rights. There is however no guarantee that these rights will not change or be taken away in the future. If the government decides to reduce or eliminate these rights…

Craft Membership Determined By The Zodiac: Ausar, Auset & The Astrology of African Historians

VisionThought's Blog

 

African centered historians are cut from a special cloth, for they are guided by a sacred mission to empower Black people with the correct knowledge about their past accomplishments.

This sacred mission has been undertaken sometimes at great cost to the individual historians without regard to pain, suffering and lack of professional advancement.

There are metaphysical traits that certain African historians share who are respected in the African centered community. The metaphysical traits that these pioneering historians have in common include the astrological signs Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius as well as the planets  Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Jupiter is the 5th planet from the sun, while Saturn is the 6th and Uranus is the 7th respectively.

In Ancient Kemet Jupiter was identified with Auset and Saturn was associated with Ausar.

The African historians will be examined by birth order and their place within the astrological landscape will be identified by the tropical and sidereal zodiac systems of astrology.

The African historians whose metaphysical traits…
