Infinite and Eternal Blessings.

Thank you Nelson Mandela for the wise true words and AfroPunk for sharing this.

Each individual person must wake up and realize that every single issue/problem throughout the world is man-made and not natural (and are all preventable/solvable).

We have ALL truly been (and continue to be) Bamboozled on every level of understanding, based on this "shitstem".

Each person must learn the truth about the "shitstem" and take responsibility for raising their own consciousness in each and every choice we each continue to make in our everyday lives, to be creative, positive, and life-affirming.

Everything is based on choice and interrelated with one's consciousness based on Prosperity Consciousness   (being aware of life's true abundances and being appreciative/thankful/generous/creative/empowered) to enjoy benefits with continued sharing and increase.


Poverty Consciousness (and being fearful/greedy/jealous/oppressed), only to end up experiencing the scarcity we are being fooled into believing is real, when it isn't.

Wise advice advocates choosing Prosperity consciousness everytime/all the time, for better/best results.

This is a great quote and we should create a guerrilla campaign with it across this planet.

I think this is partially about people helping others and ALSO people helping themselves and seeing that just because you reach a certain point, it does not mean "the end". YOU can write the next chapter.

Agree w/Mamadoc. Poverty is an element that must be maintained in order for capitalism to continue to exist. There can be no upper class if there isn't a lower one. Sad truth of the world we live in....

i do think that the statement is true & unfortunately, it won't be removed. this quote makes me think back to the times when people helped each other a whole lot more and if my family was eating, your family was eating. might not be a lot but we wouldn't starve. when i look at the history of blacks in Dallas, the community knew they couldn't count on help from outside sources, so they had their own doctors offices, cleaners, banks, stores, etc. education was an important thing as well.
