Cause uh this whole thing flooded man So…I would've needed a canoe to navigate this, but uh, but glad to be able to get out of this morning. Uh this is Reginald coocoo. And I want to do. Uh talk about some grown folk stuff today.
You know so. Uh the idea of a six and six outside of marriage and what the Christians call fornication and stuff like that because. Uh, sex is such a. Like a major pool. On our being man And a lot of times we don't even understand why you know and it's like uh Christianity essentially. Uh outlawed something that is natural. unless you are in uh in uh you know, I have been sanctioned by the state you know real marriage license.
And uh which is uh in itself. Uh kind of crazy because uh, you know, uh men and women related to each other for thousands of years before there was ever. Uh laws about getting married and stuff like that....
Have you ever really thought about living life on your terms?
It is said that the average person dies by the age of twenty five and waits for the grave to catch up!
Many people haven't because the idea is not on the radar for most. Most people follow what is considered normal and end up where everyone else does.
The department of human services say that by the age of 65 ninety-five percent of the people are financially broke. Four percent break even and one percent are financially well off.
The Ninety five percent are the normal people.
The normal people don’t even consider that they can create life on their terms.They believe that life simply happens to them, so they live the same day over and over again.
This doesn't have to be the case. You can define your own schedule and take control of your time so you can create a life you love living on your terms. It is a mindset.
That's what the principles of...
Have you ever wished that you were popular? Growing up most of us went through that stage. But it can linger into adulthood. You do things trying not to offend people and hoping that they will like you for it.
That mindset caused a lot of painful situations for me.
Through Kemetic Science, I have learned that pains and tribulations in life are my greatest teachers. As gods and goddesses in training, we are creators, never victims. This belief is one way the Kemetic philosophy is applicable in our daily lives.
Living life trying not to offend others and be liked is a prison. When I was young, I realized that being a tall black male was offensive and threatening to many.
For many of my developmental years, I carried myself in a way of being so nice that it was close to apologizing for who I was.
Over time I realized that no matter what I did, certain people felt threatened simply by the presence of a tall, confident, intelligent, black man. I...
Does fear stop you in your tracks?
Do you wait to get over fear before proceeding?
When I am coaching others, one of the questions that I get from an entrepreneurial perspective is how do I get over my fears?
Are you waiting to get over your fear of taking that next step before you take the step?
What I have learned over the years is that fear is a constant companion that never goes away.
That’s because at every new level or venture you will have doubts and uncertainty. If you have never done something before there is never one hundred percent certainty that you can achieve that new thing, or new level. That realization can create doubts that become fears.
But through practicing Kemetic science principles, I have learned to push through the fears and deal with the consequences. I don’t fail, I learn.
It will be no different for you.
So many think that you are going to get to a place or state of mind that you no...
Ask yourself what is really important, and then have the wisdom and courage to build your life around your answer.
I remember graduating from college, and people would ask me what type of job I wanted. I thought that was such an odd question.
I didn't quite understand that I could choose something based on my passions and interests. I just knew I needed to get a job and get paid some kind of way.
It was probably 15 years later, after working as an insurance adjuster because it paid well, that I realized working for the money was just not what it was cracked up to be. I hated my job.
I was stressed all the time. I would be juggling 200 different cases in any 30-day period.
I would wake up in the middle of the night and could not go back to sleep because I would remember a time-sensitive letter I had forgotten or something else that was due.
I finally left insurance adjusting, and from then on, I never got paid...
As Christians we had to worry that if we asked God for something if we were not getting it we might feel like we were in a punishment phase from God. We might not even be able to rationalize why we were being punished. The only evidence is that fact that our desire was not being fulfilled.
In Kemetic science that idea being punished just does not fly. You are never being punished. Life is challenging enough so to think that you have to fight God too is a little bit much.
In Kemetic science hard times are a part of the journey to help you rise and grow as a person and a soul. Never a punishment. I discuss that idea in this video.
Racism has been a constant in black America and the African diaspora world wide. My question is based on the idea that if, in your mind, racism ended tomorrow, what would your first move be? In other words, if you have felt like it has held you back, how would you proceed when it is gone?
The flip side of that is, if it never goes away in your lifetime, what will you do?
Being broke is not a higher spiritual level. Someone asked me if spiritual thriving different than thriving materially. The implication was that being financially well off is not spiritual. There is a lot of subconscious negative programming around having money and abundance.
This can be very limiting and even damaging, but it doesn’t mean having money is wrong. Money can be a tool for good, helping others in need, creating sustainable solutions to global problems, and supporting organizations that make a positive impact on the world.
We should not be ashamed of wanting to prosper financially; we should just be aware of how it affects us and use money responsibly. We can be wise stewards of our wealth, using it to help others and make the world a better place.
Money doesn’t have to be a bad thing; it can empower us to do more good in the world if we use it wisely. When we become conscious about how we use our finances it changes the whole equation.
I talk about living authentically and unapologetically. Many people think being unapologetically means just never saying you are sorry for anything. That's not what I mean. I mean not wanting people to validate you in a way that you are afraid to live your life.
I understand how intimidating it can be to make changes and often times we get stuck in our comfort zone because it seems more safe than taking on something new. That is why I focus on building the confidence in who you are. Self-confidence helps you weather many emotional storms and ups and downs.
Many of us have been taught think that Africans we were cursed is the reason that we were enslaved. Most that accept this line of logic do not realize that they have been given a framework or way of thinking that makes them think in limited ways about their experience. this idea if false!
In this video, I break down that false concept to help you consider another perspective that will empower you.
My hope is that the content will help you gain new insights, create connections to your history, and give you a sense of pride in your African roots.
I begin by exploring the concept of curses as it relates to Africa and enslavement and the bible used as the foundation for these beliefs.
