Today is the day we focus our intentions on expansion. Therefore my meditations are on expanding my spirals. The creative channelers that directed the occult masterpiece "Westworld" showed us how all of us are dancing our daily lives in loops, or inescapable spirals. I guess its Law tho. If the planet twirls, so must I. True Earth.
And so, Im crafting my loops to build momentum for expanding into greater opportunities to Love and be Artistic by paying tribute & homage to the industrious, strategic, intentional and Spirit-filled genius of the Master Builders of Freedmen Town. So many Freedmen's Towns erected by the hands of seemingly regular folk. Their Legacy is a source of inspiration. Perhaps not as it is now... And why the Freedmen's Town were not sustainable past a century is a worthy topic to explore; troubleshooting. In the face of institutional racism such as Jim Crow its not too hard to conjecture. And yet, I can still feel the heat.
I can still hear the iron ringing 2. Now I understand why John Henry was one my favorite mythos as child. Dem mah peoples. Or as the trending mantra goes, #Tribe.
Expansion and Abundance. I commissioned this video to document the experience of walking through the streets of Freedmen Town in the knowledge of what once was. It looks like an 'every-major-city average hood' because its undergoing decay and growth simultaneously. Its prime real estate. Its also Federally Recognized. A status that is disrespected and ignored because again, Prime Real Estate. And its such because of the Black hands that practiced Black Majic alchemy to tranform the soil under their feet... Made the mud submit to their wills. Hoodoo. Pushed back the Bayou... Perhaps Im romanticizing.
I woke-up a few days ago with this unfinished project on my mind. And so on this day of abundance Im sharing and resharing. This was recorded during a CircleSisters13 Study Group & Walking Tour of Freedmen's Town. It was intended to develop into a documentary. On some Independent Lense type -ish, lol. So sharing is part of this ritual. Expansion. And as I look at the clock, 9p... Jupiter Hour. On Jupiters Day. Moor.
