We have amongst us profane Elders and Divine Elders, and we need to know which one is which, and when it comes to the religious ones, it is profane.


Lets mentally work to not continue to be decived.

TD. Jakes:  Living Without Limitations.

This is hyprocritical when he operates in do's and don't religion.


One cannot fully live without limitation unless they remove themselves from all religions.


Say what we mean and mean what we say.

Sister Noteworthy,

Your words denote words of wisdom because you have obviously never stopped seeking knowledge, discernment and wisdom. The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know. My watchword for today is this: Only the devil could have dreamed the scheme that has scooped us up from Africa, brought to America to suffer the worse butt-wooping in human history. Why? Someone told me to read Deut. 28:15-68 for the answer. Your thoughts, my sister?

I, too, find it difficult to believe that I have reached this pinnacle in my life - this mountain top - that classifies me an 'Elder'.  I now stand as an 'old person' to many - yet I am still but a child at heart. At times -  I silently wonder if I will ever grow up - have yet to discover what I want to be - for I am so many things.  Whatever I aspire to be on any given day - defines me for a day. Yes - equipped with many talents - navigate life on terms that are largely my own - never able to tuck into a box.  So grateful to have been born when I was; 'cause as a slave - wouldn't have made it to this 'mountain top' - probably been dead by 3 years old.  Questioned everything. Some made attempt to extinguish my thirst for information - for truth -  as though it were unnatural - they failed.  I encourage this instruction passed down through the ages - Examine all things; hold fast what is fine. Yes, I'm grateful to be an elder - with hind sight in place - insight is much more accurate!

Brother Lydell,
Thanks for extending this invitation to gather around the 'table' and listen to some elders. Lord knows we have reached a critical juncture in our journey on this continent. I guess one could call in an 'unnatural disaster'. Our people are killing one another as if we are our own enemy, while the set-up man lurks in hiding. Where to begin? What to do? When do we start? What should be our #1 priority? These are the questions I am pondering.

Do our elders have any advice, insights, words of wisdom and guidance?

Oh hush Lydell and mind your Elders. lol We will get around to it.
Comment by Lydell Jackson on September 10, 2010 at 9:37am
OK Youngsters!! LOL ... I know you two are young at heart. I also know you two are full of wisdom. Sounds like you are hesitant about sharing your insights. Don't be! You are both the sort of people who have experience that is worth sharing. Not one of us has it all, but together, all of us have enough to share...
Comment by Jon Vee on September 9, 2010 at 9:02pm
LOL Ty keep feelin like that because I feel the same way. It's like I know you are not talking about me. lol I've always felt like a kid and I think I always will.
