Cult: an instance of great respect or awe of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers; worship, reverence.
Personality: the sum total of the physical, mental, emotional, and social characteristics of a person, ideal, or thing; It is an act of courage flung in the face of life.
According to lead singer Corey Glover of one of the greatest musical groups of all time, the
rock, punk, funk,soul group Living Colour and master guitarist of the group Vernon Reid "I
think we touched upon a truth that has never really been refuted in any way, shape or form, in
that you can pour all of your hopes and dreams into one person, but it doesn't mean that they
are exactly who you are. I think that's a universal truth. The phrase "cult of personality," in and
of itself is really sort of encapsulated in that idea. From Jesus to George Washington."
Reid added- "Cult of personality, it's Che Guevera and it's Pol Pot. It's not about placing a value
system of where this person is good, this person is bad, it's really beyond that." These
comments are taken from an interview that was conducted for The Vinyl District entitled
"Living Colour: The TVD Interview by Jon Pacella March 10, 2015.
So, in August of 2016, who are our current Cult of Personalities that are influencing the minds
of the people. It should be known that not only are people, Cults of Personality but
organizations as well. However, true to who I am I want to show you what is know as a chakra
chart. First, what are chakras? The word chakra comes from the Sankrit language which is the
primary sacred language of Hinduism. It is a philosophical language not only utilized in
Hinduism but also in Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism. The chakras as described in Sankrit, are
seven wheels or vortexes of energy that exists in several parts of the human body. A gentleman
by the name of Purnananda Yati is credited with creating the text which most experts in the
topic of chakras, particularly in the western world follow, which is called the Shat-
chakra-nirupana. It is believed that the number of chakras go up to 12, 16 or more.
Nonetheless, it is generally agreed upon by scholars of this subject that there are seven main
chakras. The seven main chakras correspond to seven main parts of the body. Each of the
seven major recognized chakras relate to a specific part of our being and levels of
consciousness, body functions, and colors. The blockage or energetic dysfunction in
the chakras is believed to give rise to physiological, psychological, emotional and
spiritual disorders. The lack of a healthy diet and stressful, unfulfilling lifestyles of many
people, is a contributor to the rise of physiological, psychological, emotional and spiritual
Now that I have set the base let me give you a picture.
Take a look at the 1st chakra. The 1st chakra identifies with survival, security and fear. The 2nd
chakra deals with relationships, sexuality, intimacy and desire. The particular element of the 3rd
chakra that I want to focus on is impulse and anger. So I have set the stage for what I want to
say. The CULTS OF PERSONALITY play on peoples';
Need for Survival- 20 companies that have slashed the most jobs in 2016/ Tavis Smiley "It's Open Hunting Season on Black Men."
Need for Security-America's disappearing middle class/Terrorism
Fears- How an Elite New York Police Unit Rehearses for a Terrorist Attack/Florida Cop shoots unarmed black man with hands in the air. All within the 1st chakra.
Relationships-Black men don't like black women, Join Black Lives Matter, Are Black women
giving up on Black men?,Swirling, Democrats, Republicans.LGBT-Transsexuals-Gay
Sexuality-#LoveMyShape Movement, Black girls rock.
Intimacy-closeness of observation or knowledge of a subject, Facebook Group, a private cozy atmosphere, people who think like you do.
Desire-a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen, We Will Make America Great Again. The 2nd chakra.
Impulse-Protest March, "This Flag Comes Down Today": Bree Newsome
Anger-No Convictions for Any Cops Involved in Arrest and Death of Freddie Gray/Mexicans are taking jobs away from Americans
Those who are worshiped in society as well as the companies and individuals who are
looked to for leadership or those who can easily bring the masses to a state of fear or anger
have somewhat of a very powerful understanding of the 5th chakra. This chakra is
responsible for creativity, speech, individual needs and will and they achieve this by calmly
shaping the thoughts of those who only operate solely from the 1st and 2nd chakra. The chakra
chart alone shows you, that they have a far better understand of how most people think than
most people have of their own thought process. Thus, they gladly look upon the masses as
no more than minions.
Minion-someone who is not powerful or important and obeys the orders or a powerful
leader or boss; a servile dependent, follower, or underling. Damn, wasn't there a movie
There is a documentary known as The Century of Self .
It chronicles how people in positions of power have mastered how to utilize the media to play
the emotions of the people to achieve what they wish. I would argue that people do not
understand that these companies are helping to create the images of your favorite politicians,
athletes, actors, musicians, singers and rappers. Thus, how do people react?
As the last photo shows there is nothing new under the sun, those girls are now someone's
The documentary also shows how companies play on the emotions of people to
sell products, based on a persons desire to want to have the latest clothing,
electronic device, shoes, cars etc., not because a person genuinely wants it, but because
they want to have the "privilege" and "prestige" of being able to say to themselves or
especially to someone else that they have the new "it." They are led to have an emotional
connection to the item, bringing a temporary, yet powerful boost of self esteem, sometimes
to the point of losing their minds.
The very thought that people can be manipulated to such an extent as shown in the videos
is troubling. The truth of the matter is that these folks do not think in the realm of, "I am
going to buy something that I do not need" and you can forget about them thinking in the
neighborhood of what I am writing of...PLEASE...However, this is the world that we live in.
Now, as easily as a person can be made to run to spend money, they can be made to be in
constant fear and anger.
While looking through various videos and photos of protest and anger over various issues, I
literally felt, my positive energy drop, drop and drop. I needed some jokes, quick. I clicked on
YouTube and found the silliest, dumbest and yet funniest thing I could find.
I NEEDED SOME JOKES! Because all that drama and pain is too much. I understand a
person's right to protest, to voice their opinion. I can understand their anger, especially
when they see protest and anger as the only way to express themselves and to make their
voice be heard.
Clearly, historically speaking, protesting has had an effect on the purposes in which the
particular protest was intended. There are at least 17 different forms of protest and the
one movement historically speaking in the United States that is most remember and instantly
comes to mind is The Civil Rights Movement.
Much can be said about this particular era and I argue that there are undoubtedly civil rights issues
that are being discuss, debated,voted on behind closed doors daily in 2016.
Clearly many people are not receiving what they want in life, many people are living in places where
they do not like what they see, what they feel.
In every city there are places were, on one side of town or others, everything looks modern
and people are treated with repect and on the other side of town everything is run
down and people are getting overlooked and being treated with severe disrespect. I get
that, I have witnessed that.
However, I just spoke on things and showed videos and photos based upon the thoughts and actions
of someone who is operating from the 1st and 2nd chakra. The 3rd chakra, on the most negative side as well.
We are in a world were it is just about dangerous to protest, even when the original intention is peaceful.
Would I suggest that people stop protesting, no. People have a right to do as they please, and to think and
feel as they please about any issue.
Nevertheless, looking at things from the spiritual perspective and the common since perspective, I believe
that every person should look at themselves and change what is negative within themselves. I believe they
should do it themselves by way of self examination and to take it further, utilizing metaphysical tools and
principals. To even consider metaphysical principals, one would have to be on the positive side of the 3rd chakra,
then moving up to the 4th, 5th, 6th and ultimately the 7th chakra.
Yet realistically, an individual will never get pass the 1st and 2nd chakra by following another person or an organization!
I ask, whose thoughts are you thinking. I believe for the masses of people, the Cults of Personality have your puppet strings.
For example, why did it take a Caucasian millionaire and three Black women to all of a sudden have
Black people around the world protesting and screaming Black Lives Matter? You mean to tell me, that
they never new their life mattered before? You mean to tell me that there were not people protesting and
voicing their disapproval of their living conditions before this "organization" came along?
I go back to the power of the mind and action. I know that there are people all over the world who make bad
choices that result in bad outcomes. The Black community is not immune. Particularly in the "Hood" where crime
is known to be a regular occurrence in an area the has generational poverty. You literally have many families who
have only known barely getting by and petty crime or quick money schemes.
There are hard working people in these areas as well, yet these people cannot seem to leave or they do not want to
leave. Several bad groups make life hard for everyone there and that is generational. There is a certain way of life that
has been accepted and I would not doubt that the Cults of Personality had a hand in implanting those thoughts, which
have been passed down the family line. Every neighborhood has their issues, make no mistake about it, and they all look
to the politicians as the savior, the one to take away the pain. You got stars who could fart on the mic and people will
say "Oh it sounded sooo sweeeeet."
People get so caught up in other people and allow them to manipulate their thoughts
towards every level of emotion. EMOTION can be the fuel of success or the source of your
stagnation. Sometimes, its best to spend time alone and turn off the t.v.
The first act of change is first the THOUGHT, WHICH IS YOUR OWN. No one can do what is
right for you better than YOU. Then if you are seeking sources of inspiration seek those who
think as you and inspire you, but do not be a clone. You are unique and you have special gifts
and talents and a special life that only YOU can live. That's THOUGH ELEVATION OLA all day.
People talk about the system that is in place and how it is designed to suppress people into
situations were their seems to be no hope. I believe that yes, their is a system in place. Yet, the
people who fall prey to that system are the ones who bite the cheese and get caught in the
The pervading thought in most communities and by the activist, is to save everyone. I
commend there efforts, which is based upon their level of understanding, compassion, belief.
However, leave out the politicians, the police, the crooked businessman, the thief, all of the
unfairness that is all around you. Turn off the t.v. and cease to allow the Cults of Personality to
program your mind. Take a break from the protest, sit at home, go somewhere quite.
After some time, determine how you feel and separate those thoughts from what you have been told
via t.v., social media, other people. Are the thoughts the same or are they different. Only you
In closing I will say this, there is not one negative situation in the history of this
planet that a person has not been able to remove his or herself from. The key is that, the
individual took the time to examine their own thoughts and soul and formulate a plan of
action that was going to lead to a positive result for that person.
I do not have the answers that can save an entire city, neighborhood, or group of people. However,
I can assist an individual in coming face to face with themselves and once a person can clean up what is
negative within and around themselves, then they may be able to truly help others, if they are
willing to be helped, which is key. You can't do that being a minion for the Cults of
