    true - we all got cracks and craters yo - we'll only see ourselves properly when all the puzzle pieces connect - some pieces give you a clearer hint of what that big picture looks like - KRS is definitely one of those pieces for me - some corner pieces won't have the same vision, but that is the beauty of their individuality -


    as puzzle pieces, we may find another and try to connect, and get stuck in the process - but don't run away, cause most of us have 4 sides - you have to turn around and try the other side of the piece - if you run away, you'll be going through the whole box of pieces and become a whore

    you know....eye had heard
    rumors that KRS ate junk food
    and dead animals long before this
    particular video came out

    and to my knowledge this video is the first
    time KRS ever admitted that he does eat
    junk food and dead animals

    this is the first time he admitted it

    and eye don't think its any coincidence
    that he finally admits this
    after he published this great great
    mammoth of a book(over 800 pages!!!!)........

    because in the book....at least ONCE
    he promotes the eating of fish...
    eye think its in the freestyle section

    om still gonna ride with KRS though....
    because eye think its a better
    "religious" book than the Quran
    or Bible

    after all he's done for me and now that
    he's published this book eye really
    can't say shit to judge him

    its defineatly curing me of my diet zealotry

    anyways....eye read it quickly at the barnes and
    noble...

    now om almost finished reading it in a slower manner

    soon eye will post up some quotes from the
    book that stood out

    stay tuned

    as promised.....

    "WAKE UP HIPHOPPA! GOD is the very event that caused you to go astray in the beginning. It is GOD who has been teaching you from before you were even born, preparing you with the events of your very life for the ministry you are now qualified to promote. For only wisdom and real life experiences possess the authority to correctly teach others. The greatest of all sins is to believe that you actually have the power to sin, that somehow there is you and GOD. WAKE UP HIPHOPPA! GOD is a thousand times more devious than you can ever be. In fact, it is those who, because of fear and/or pride, never come to GOD for corrections, who continue to judge themselves when GOD is not even judging them. It is they who suffer the most in prolonged immaturity and ignorance. And even this is GOD's doing"

    "The Love in your heart will want to unite with those who suffer and are in need. But please remember that everyone is where they are because of who they are. To truly save a person from their own illusions and hardships it is not you that must unite with them, it is they who must unite with you! You uniting with the ignorant and the immature will only lead to your own suffering"

    "As spirit/human beings, the universe is seeing what it is capable of as us! To know that you are not in the universe but that you are the universe itself, is self-awareness. To know that you are an idea, a possibility, a hope, a try-out in GOD's mind, this is self-awareness. To know that GOD is depending on you to fullfill the purpose designed for you is self-awareness."

    "Having realized this, I realized that this movement cannot rely upon people. It cannot rest upon the trust of people. People are fickle. One minute they’re in, one minute they’re out. Most of the people on the record were there—they were there for their hearts, no doubt, but they did expect KRS to go ahead and lead the movement. And KRS never intended that or intended for that, so it kind of just waned. And one thing I’ll say is that I learned over twenty years the difference between being an artist and being an activist, and they are two different things. The people who shout positivity on records, they’ve got the red, black and green going, the dreadlocks, their women have the head-wrap with the long skirt and the backpack and it’s all black and we’re doing it and it’s all thug. And what I learned is really, honestly, I get more support from thugs, pimps, hoes, hustlers before I get the support of the so-called conscious, hip hop community or conscious urban community, neo-soul, whatever it’s called."

    this spoke to me loudly

    i've noticed this also and been saying this for some time - why are people with "knowledge of self" the last to unite and make group efforts to pull their resources together ?

    well....eye personally and historically don't get along
    with concious people in real life so eye can dig this

    as far as your question

    1)many are called....only a few are chosen
    2)equality is the bouncer at club 7
    3)the concious community is in alot of ways
    no different from churches and masjids in
    that its more of a social circle with a
    "we" and "them" mentality.....just a way
    for one to have a social standing
    and even pass off immature behavior
    as righteouesness

    "the Temple of Hip Hop suggests seeking the personality of your God first so that all other material possesions can be picked up along the way in peace. If you are serious about aquiring money, seek GOD. For with God(or rather in the charecter of GOD) you shall always have enough money.
    However the Temple of Hip Hop further advises its members to seek ways to live with little or no money at all. Different from living in poverty, live a simple life. Learn to live according to your means. Extravagence and exessiveness lead to stress and worry.
    True wealth is not based upon how much one has; true wealth is based on how much one can do without. It is not just about one possesses, it is more about what one can let go of. For when one is content with ones self, no material loss can overwhelm such a person-self is the ultimate value."
