    I've got a question, and I haven't the slightest clue who I should address with it.. After reading the manual & being fairly wellversed in the Wu anthology, I've become rather interested in the fivepercent nation & its ideals. My question is, how can a white man live a spiritually inclined, five percent life? Because sans the black skin that is the bond between five percenters, the group and organization is eroded to the core, it would seem. I'd like to explore a 'knowledge of self' mentality, but, being so uneducated on all forms of religion and higher beings, any mentor or guide would be most useful. Any suggestions? Word is bond.

    Take yourself to your nearest city, embed yourself in the culture and search for those few 'enlightened' people. If you want to learn someones always around to teach you.

    I read through most of this thread, I would like to be involved in it too. I myself am not a five percenter although I share most of their ideals and beliefs. My cousin is a five percenter and I have alot of friends that are. I agree with anyone thats not ignorant and is out to make a positive impact on todays society. Not a day goes by that I don't think to myself on a way I can change the majority's outlook to a better one and help my people out of the hole they've dug themselves in over the years. I am a self educated person who ridded himself off the 'normal' thought processes that plagued mankind, to a certain extent(I'll explain).

    I'm still slightly materialistic, although I'm working on it.
    I still eat pork even though I know the effects it has.
    I involve myself in criminal activities, and spend alot of times in the streets with societies castaways and outlaws.
    I have alot of mental problems I need to work out in order to move on with my life, regressed anger, hatred towards certain people etc.

    I still consider myself virtuous and I try to be as moral as possible, but in the end I still go about things inappropriately.

    BUT I'M WORKING ON IT, everyday I try to achieve new levels mentally, physically, and spiritually.

    5% is just a title. any mind can live righteously. christianity, along with MANY other religions all lead you up to one principal, whether you see it or not (most religious leaders don't even see it - they're just in it for the power ultimitely), and that principal is LOVE. thomas merton, a well-known christian monk, was building with a buddhist monk and they both agreed that it is only love that man is here to achieve. so to all those who are searching: listen to the wu and hear what they say, "do the knowledge son, before you do the wisdom."

    Thanks for the shoutout, KnoWisUnd. Everyone should really listen to the song "12 Jewels" by RZA from GraveDiggaz' "The Pick, The Sickel, & The Shovel" album. If you want to live a righteous life, take heed to the words of that song. It's what righteousness is all about, in a nutshell.

    ^ glad somebody else realizes that shit about ODB too. I reazlied that shit when I was high once, his lyrics are mad deep but it's put in a weird fucked up context.

    That's exactly what I've been thinking about a lot of times. Cause, you know, people who are saying that their religion is right and the others are not - they are not true followers of the main thing about it. You see - during all human history this misunderstanding and misinterpretation has led to a huge amount of troubles. People were dying centuries ago because of the crusader shit - now people are dying because of muslims who were turned unconsciously on the wrong side. And of course they are being led by some other devils who use people's ignorance in order to achieve some private aims.

    Love is the thing. It's about your love to God and about your love to other human beings, which is actually also a love to God.

    "My children, all six billion humans
    on the planet Earth
    Regardless of who or what, I love you
    Word is bond, I love you"

    ^^ That is something we all should work for.

    I have my theories on this one, but let me study it a bit more to get the first part.

But there's too much crazy shit going on in the lyrics of just ONE song to make me think there is no real connection. Any real Wu members wanna step up and let us know what the hell is really real about all this? I'd be glad to be proven wrong on some of it. Cause shit I had to guess.
    He was saying that they were trying to kill him when he was incarcerated. I always knew that this brother was deep.
