Is This World Supernatural?
Is this world supernatural? From our limited perception of reality, most Black people do believe so. Most religions claim that reality is the work of a God that creates things for his pleasure them keeps them in perfect order to support their existence. Even Science cannot convincingly explain how the Earth is sustained. If the Earth’s position changes by even one degree it would cause a global catastrophe in which half of life would be wiped out.
So, if so many things in our reality appears to be supported by supernatural forces, why do our personal realities not support that. Death, pain, sickness, grief, and sadness are all realistic things that are just a blink of an eye away from every moment of our lives. We eat things that are making us sick and are causing Cancer and other deadly diseases but we don’t know it until its too late. We go through generations of rape, murder, and oppression at the hands of wicked people yet there is no supernatural help unless we sacrifice our own happiness so that our children might live better than we did.
If a god exists then why does he allow us to experience pain and sorrow? Religious people say no, God is not responsible for our pain and sorrow; our pain and sorrow is a product of the free-will that God gave all mankind. It is the free-will of man that causes pain and sorrow, not God. Ok, will why doesn’t God shield the righteous from the pain and sorrow inflicted on man to man? The answer that they give is that God sees the pain and sorrow of all righteous people and will reward the sinner with Hell and the righteous with resurrection to Heaven.
Religion offers such a comforting view of reality that Black people have become bound to the comforting message that it provides. They are so faithful to their religions that they are willing to endure the pain, sorrow, and grief they are subjected to and even forgive our oppressors. There are some of us who are not willing to endure those kinds of hardships in our lives. In fact, we would rather die than live with unhappiness.
In the meantime, and since our Mind is meant for using, we choose to use our Minds to redefine the supernatural nature of our existence. We do not believe that we were created by a God who is watching our sorrow but is doing nothing to help us. The pain, sorrow, and grief that we feel are too real to believe that it is all to test our faith. We are not interested in any type of omnipotent existence that we had to endure pain to receive.
No, we choose to believe that we are already omnipotent Spirits who chose to enter this reality simply in order to experience it. The pain, sorrow, and grief that we feel are real and are the reality of the humans we chose to incarnate as. We who have incarnated as the Black Race are the most resilient Spirits in the Universe. We will master the supernatural nature of this existence and make its evils bow before us. Heru Interface#supernatural
