The Afrika we seek is the Afrikan to be raised. Afrikans must take education and spirituality serious…
To be educated is to be transformed from chaos to order; to develop and access the creative intelligence available to all in this universe to help others. If we will live healthy and happy, Afrikans must invest in quality education (formal/informal) and take advantage of the strategies of righteous deeds to reposition our continent.
At the bottom of every failure is the belief in a false doctrine and a poor educational system can deliver such false doctrine. The corruption in our land centers on the fact that it is wise to thrive on falsehoods. We are happy trampling on the truth; are we not shooting ourselves in the foot?
…at the bottom of every failure is the belief in a false doctrine.
Not knowing who you are is a very sad position to be in. Our knowledge of our identity us humans (Afrikans) is fundamental to our progress. We have believed in a lie for so long. Who said we cannot rebuild our soul, our people and our lands? Who said we cannot lead ourselves in integrity, accountability and honest service? Who said we can not have the will to sacrifice? Who said we cannot delay our gratification? Who said we cannot change? Universal principles predict otherwise.
Today, access to knowledge is almost free, with critical thinking, collaboration and creative service to one another, we can rebuild but will we? Will we give our lives for this regeneration and build as our ancestors did in fighting to maintain our identity? Why do we copy when our true selves burn within us? Will we shed blood for the next generation or we will continue to kill the little good that remains in our land but are on the verge of loosing fire?
we must re-educate ourselves to seek spiritual intelligence to lead us unto healthy and righteous living…this is our only hope.
We must educate ourselves to believe in and develop our creative confidence, we must be willing to bring to order the chaos that so entangles us because of our selfish aspirations and policies. We must re-educate ourselves (old & young) to seek spiritual intelligence to lead us unto healthy and righteous living…this is our only hope. We must start talking less and do more. We can but will we?
We must learn to obey laws and contribute to community and nation building, for without the desire to seek good for one another and the understanding to see that good realized, there will be no justice. If we desire a just community and a continent full of good, it must start from our homes; our individual selves.
Afrika seeks change, you must change first! The change starts with you.
The Afrika we seek to build must first be built in us, the chaos we see in Afrika comes from us and we must seek to change our own selves first before we see real change. If this is not done, we will deprive ourselves and the generations unborn, the opportunity to live in a healthy environment and with happy people. Individually, we must wash ourselves first, then we can be good instruments of change shining and matching forth to bring good to humanity.
Afrika is us, Afrika is you; wherever you are, her blood runs through your veins. Afrika seeks change, you must change first! The change starts with you.

This is a very good content and I believe everyone must read this.
Change indeed starts with me
Indeed if I am prepared to change, then all hope is not lost yet. Thank you!
Yes, yes, yes….”Afrika is us, Afrika is me…”.
This blog post was to me like the commentary on Kwame Nkrumah’s words, in fact it renders it more beautifully in practical terms: “I am not an Afrikan because I was born in Afrika. I am an Afrikan because Afrika was born in me.”
It was a nice read and challenges me to keep working on myself and keep looking inwards so as to do my part to build the continent of our dreams. Thanks so much for sharing this Sam!
