This whole time I thought this word came from racism, ignorance, rape, captivity, torture and murder. Comes to find out it comes from the Ethiopian word for kingship, royalty, prestige, and power. Out of all the words in the world they choose to call us, the word they chose was one that means royalty? I looked up african words for slave and peasant and couldn't find any that was similar to the word Negus. Now I do believe that the Native Americans on the east coast of America were of African descent. Also when you hear how we are the "chosen people", "the lost tribe", "the real jews" and then even as slaves they were calling us kings and queens just makes you think. I been calling my homies and co workers "Negus" for like 2 weeks with the right pronunciation and only 2 picked up on it Lol. There are people who say the word came from other places but I'm not convinced. The word nigger comes from the word Negus which means royalty. Sad part about it is most of us that call each other niggas are not even worthy of the actual term. #letstalkaboutit#history#originsofgreatness#wordsarespells#rootwords#negus#backinmypower#melanation#africa#godisinyou#hiddenmeaning#vibratehigher#revolutionofconsciousness#selfeducation
#Throwback to July. *
Lately I've noticed that I have been encountering an increased number of butterflies around me. Just the other day, a monarch narrowly escaped a collision with my windshield as I was driving. A split second before impact, the butterfly swooped up and flew parallel with the glass. I was reminded of a story that @iamzacclark spoke of back in July about his recent incident with a not so lucky butterfly. Moments before I happened upon my butterfly, Dennis Rodman began playing. Coincidence? 🤔 All I know is that the message that I Know That You're the One delivers resonates with me more now.
I love the new album and have been listening to it on repeat nearly everyday. Each song weaves a beautiful story and there are several messages throughout that I need to hear at this time in my life. This album has such an enchantingly serene atmosphere; it has helped keep me grounded and calms me down when I'm feeling overwhelmed.
Dennis Rodman was probably my favorite live performance. I love the vibe the band evoked with this song; the air was electric. The spirit that Mountains exudes is invigorating and uplifting.
It was great to hear and sing along to the older catalog as well. I gained a deeper appreciation for Traffic; there's a richness and authenticity that a digital medium cannot quite convey.
I wish you much success and hope that you'll continue to share your musical gifts and words of wisdom. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I really hope to see you again sometime soon in KC! Keep howling at the moon! 😊⛰🌒
Does anybody know if praying mantis’s have to do with anything? I keep seeing ones that are dying show up near me. They are turning brown. I have a feeling it has something to do with the skin I am shedding in order to move work positions and get to a more stable environment. Anyway, I named them and watch over them.
...Of Dreams... both disturbing and prophetic... I have been stirred by emotions and impressions most of my life. Ones that aren’t easily understood and even harder to recall. Glimpses, snippets seen in shadows, heard in words or sounds from across the room. “Phoenix” is like that, an image that came to be at a wonderful time in my life. And though I pass it many times in a day, the depth of meaning still speaks volumes not easily understood or grasped. #art#artistsoninstagram#phoenix#pastel#dreams#hiddenmeaning#fineartist#pastel
Fortune is there for the taking. I had a mini vacation this weekend, so I had dinner out. At the end of the meal our fortune cookies arrive and I pick mine last after my companions read theirs. When I opened mine, it was empty.
Anyone else believe in the meaning that a white feather is supposed to symbolise? Lying on the sofa and spotted this on the bush outside the window. I know it's just fallen off a bird but I just felt compelled to go and get it #whitefeather#hiddenmeaning#angel
