“UNDERSTAND” IN AFRICAN TRADITION (1)

by Dr. Joseph A. Bailey II, MD., FACS on 19th-August-2017

An Ancient African Law says humans are on Earth to acquire two things—Wisdom and Spiritual Power. And both come through Peace in Adversity. Whereas Knowledge is gained and expanded by gathering Truths, Wisdom uses Knowledge by simplifying it as. Together, they move through the flow of the Spiritual Elements of Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural. Wisdom is arrived at when a conclusion or judgment results without one going through a thinking process—but, instead, it is an intuited or direct perception of reality.In the process, Truth (which is both Static—i. e. eternal and Dynamic, by being woven into Patterns for daily living functions)–Knowledge (which is Static)– and Wisdom (which is dynamic)–either create, enhance, or maintain Spiritual Power. Together, Wisdom and Spiritual Power provide one with abilities to make Right Decisions and Right Solutions, even on the basis of inadequate or unknown evidence. This is how one comes to "Be Right," "Recognize Right," "Do Right," "Make Things Right," and "Defend the Right". Yet, in the course of heading towards ones Goal and in performances of ones Mission in life, one will always be called upon to face losses, lacks, obstructions, Wicked people, Con-Artists, and confusing, conflicting, and ambigous novel situations which find no parallel in ones past. What ought not be done is to try to solve these problems by using “the way it is always has been done,” for that is like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. To “Escape” from the Problem sets off a Domino Effect–cumulative falling effects in a linked sequence, produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events. The pre-existing state of dominoes, each standing on the short end of their rectangular shape, are in alignment, similar to teeth in a comb. When undergoing a Cascade chain reaction, the first domino is knocked forward (like failing to handle ones keystone first problem). That causes the adjacent one to fall (meaning more problems pop up from not having handled the keystone first one). In turn, each next domino causes the next standing one to fall—and so on until all have fallen. Such symbolizes a vicious cycle of Problems from failing to handle the keystone one. One becomes Overwhelmed and seeks the Crowd’s advice–or says: “It’s my Fate!

 However, the core of being overwhelmed is by not Understanding oneself, the situation, and/or how to handle Significant Problems. To reverse this is to acknowledge: “I do not know” and proceed to do research. Next,  understand the Cosmic Law of “Uniqueness in Sameness”. This was repeatedly illustrated to me by countless of my Orthopaedic Surgical patients having the same diagnosis and yet no two could ever be properly treated the same way—meaning each Problem is unique. From that point on, seek only Truth, Knowledge, and Wisdom out of Ancient African Sources—and never “Information” from any other sources. A reason is Truth, Knowledge, and Wisdom came from African Sages learning from within their Souls. The alternative is to be “in-formed”—i.e. learning outside ones Being from sources which are wrong, biased, prejudiced, incomplete, evil, and/or incompetent. To only get information from human “authorities” is to be limited to their Secular (flawed) or Supernatural (Make-Believe) Intellect. Such is drawn from  their dominating childhood and/or Crowd’s Socializing cultures. Those philosophies of life are filled with Unexamined Assumptions. Instead, to have foundational sources of Spiritual Elements ingredients to serve as building blocks of Understanding is to have an in-depth “big picture” of Spiritual (i.e. the Immaterial) and realistic Secular (with both Spirit and Matter) realms. 

As Complementary Opposites, they are likened to the two sides of a Cosmic Coin—both being vital for humans’ Right Wholistic Life Living. A “big picture” is the Cosmic Force, Sekhem’s Substance = Cosmic Essence in evolving multi-dimensional Cosmic aspects of Reality. They consist throughout of gigantic, large, and small systems. All systems are Unified in their Natures, Patterns and Relationships, thus making a Cosmos of infinite Continuity and Harmony. To "Understand" anything is to see interrelationships of the components involved and how they are unified into a Sameness with Uniqueness. For each, that enables a “what it is” + “what it does” + “how it appears” awareness. Spirit Substance (to stand ‘under’) equates to “Understand” (‘to stand under’). To use either properly is to realize a Thing’s Essence/Essentials displays or a Cosmic derived Thing’s (or Entity) unrealized Reality Essence potential to do its Mission. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
