Everything is fair in war! Do you think someone who enslaved, raped and killed your ancestors would give a religion to empower you? I like the smartness of the Whites, they have astutely mastered the art of war. Sun Tzu said if your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him.
If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them.
If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. The problem is that Blacks have not realised they have been at war from the days of the missionaries to present.
Haiti was the first slave zone to get independence; January 1, 1804. Many have not deciphered the reason behind their early independence. According to Wikipedia, unlike the Spartacus revolt, the Haitian Revolution was the only slave uprising that led to the founding of a state free from slavery and ruled by non-whites and former captives. Haitians didn’t abandon their original ancestral spiritual practices; drumming and dancing, prayers, herbology, etc.
Most Blacks don’t know that before the acceptance of foreign religions, their ancestors were living like gods: could telepathically talk with plants and animals; could time travel; could teleport; could control rain and many more. Can anyone enslave and control a god? No! Haitians were the first successful Black slave revolts because they traveled the spiritual path of their ancestors.
African spiritualism is not demonic but it is the only practice that turn man into living god! How can you say you were created in the image of God when you can’t even communicate with a common fowl? Do you think God will put his creatures (animals, water, plants, etc.) in the care of a representative who can’t even communicate with them? What foreign religions did was to turn living gods into vulnerable men; this made it easier to capture and control them as slaves. Blacks embraced slavery the very moment we abandoned our ancestral spiritualism.
General Gnassingbé Eyadéma was one of the greatest practitioners of African spiritualism despite his insatiable taste for power. “During his rule he escaped several assassination attempts; in 1974 he survived a plane crash in the northern part of the country near Sarakawa.
After another unsuccessful assassination attempt by a bodyguard, he carried the bullet removed by the surgeon as an amulet”, Wikipedia. I am not writing to stoke the pain the family of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North Constituency, Mr. Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, went through. Mr. JB Danquah Adu, may his soul rest in peace, was stabbed to death on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at his residence in Accra.
He was forced to die a premature death by an unscrupulous citizen. Couldn’t his death be averted like the late General Gnassingbé if he was knife/bullet proof (practitioner of African spiritualism)? Mr. Danquah was an asset to Ghana; he was on the Special Budget Committee in Parliament as well as the Trade, Industry and Tourism Committee.
God wouldn’t call him in such manner; it was man that forced his sad death. Practitioners of African spiritualism who protect themselves against such calamities like the General are ungodly people who will burn in hell according to foreign religions and those that are vulnerable like JB are godly people who will go to Sugar Candy Mountain after death. Put fear behind, let logic exceed faith and draw your own conclusion from the analyses!
Agona Clan in Ghana has three main royal capitals: Denkyira (Piesie); Akyem Oda (Manu) and Adansi Bodwesango (Mensa). History says, a monstrous creature (sasabonsam) was tormenting and killing the people of Bodwesango. The creature killed many warriors in their attempt to kill it; it was impermeable to arrows, blades, gun powder, and spears.
Maame Akua Praah, the oldest woman who was schooled in African spiritualism at the village by then, taught the remaining warriors how to kill the monster. To date, no flora has grown at the place where the monster fell after it was killed – you can visit the place to attest the story. What would have happened to the people if the woman wasn’t around? Would they have been totally wiped out from history?
Okofo Nana Boakari was Adansi Bodwesango royal who fought for the Asantes during the 1909 Yaa Asantewaa war. He fought so furiously with his warriors to the Ewe land. When they reached the bank of Volta River, they had no canoes to cross the Volta. Nana Boakari performed rituals and magically waved through Volta River (the largest river in Ghana) with his warriors. What would have happened if no one had such knowledge among the warriors?
Throughout history, those who saved this country and continent were African spiritualists. The followers of foreign religions have pathetically been silent when actions were demanded and they still do. They have been programmed to rely on ever-silent God even when thinking and actions are demanded.
Spiritualism like any other knowledge is a potential power: in the hands of a good person would be used for amazing things in service to humanity; in the hands of a bad person would be catastrophic. Someone studied nuclear physics and used the knowledge to manufacture bombs to kill. Another also used the same knowledge to generate electricity for his community.
Is it the nuclear physics that is evil or the person? There are many things in Africa Western philosophers have not yet understood. It is the duty of the Black philosophers and scientists to research into their ancestral practices and see how best they can use them for techno-socio-economic transformation of the Black societies.
You are not better than your ancestors: you are because your ancestors were; you are their present living DNA. Your ancestors fought and shed their blood with the dream of giving you a comfortable life. If your life is not comfortable, sweat and spill your blood for the next generation to have the life your ancestors dreamt for you. Don’t blame other people (Whites) for your inactions because survival is the basic instinct of every warrior.
