One day a Westerner was watching a Chinese gentleman burning bank notes before the tablets of his ancestors. The Westerner said, "How can your ancestors benefit from the smoke of paper money?"
The Chinese man bowed courteously and said, "In the same way in which your dear departed relatives appreciate the flowers you put on their graves."

Vandana Shiva Blows Up The Spot!

Although our ancestors the Kemetians (Egyptians) recognized most natural and social phenomena as separate divine forces, they also realized that many of them were interrelated and could be seen as different aspects of a single divine force. It was noted in Inner Civilization:
"Understanding the oneness, or unity of all things, may in the future come to symbolize the distinction in our thinking from that of the traditional West. This knowledge is part of our heritage and has the potential to drive our advance in science, political theory, public policy, economics and mental and spiritual growth in the years to come." ~ Inner Civilization Chapter 9, P. 321.

Vandana Shiva (in the clip below) displays, in brilliant form, the solutions that come through understanding the interconnection of all things even in the face of Western arrogance, fear-mongering and reductionism.

“You can drop bombs on my villages, you can destroy all my books, you can rob us of our culture, and you can create a landscape where no bird, no insect, nothing can hide, but I do not despair ever. I have hope because I saved one seed that I will plant and grow again.”
~ A Palestinian poem.

MLK - The Speech We Weren't Supposed to Hear

The Inner Resources Speech

"We are descendants of the Africans. Our heritage is Africa. We should never seek to break the ties, nor should the Africans." ~ MLK '68.

King in 1968

"I subject myself to self-purification and to endless self-analysis; I question and soul-search constantly into myself to be as certain as I can that I am fulfilling the true meaning of my work, that I am maintaining my sense of purpose, that I am holding fast to my ideals, that I am guiding my people in the right direction. But whatever my doubts, however heavy the burden, I feel that I must accept the task of helping to make this nation and this world a better place to live in—for all men, black and white alike." ~ MLK

South Africa....15 Years later

"If one were to look beyond racism, one would see the true motives of those who employ it. There will always be wealth at stake, a job at stake or a promotion at stake, land at stake, votes at stake, etc."
- Alan Dixon, Beyond Protest; Inner Civilization.
