Anonymous said: Hey can I ask how heretic is it to view death as an mpungo? Not speaking about the muertos, more like death herself?

Well, that depends on your line. In Mayombe, we don’t work with or believe in mpungo at all, instead working with those forces as mpungu, and not humanized reflections. We don’t see mpungo that way, but there are likely others that do.

Ceiba. Blessed to have one. May it grow strong, and our spirituality strengthen with it.

Time to heat some trabajos I have working for clients. Mayombe Saca Empeño shakes the Earth, but never falls.

I can’t fully express how deeply, soul-soothing and satisfying it is to live a religion rooted in Blackness is for me. It’s like the first time I visited Atlanta, and felt such a strange feeling. There was something odd….took me a minute before I realized. I’m not the odd one out here, I’m the default. Being a black man in this country is at times like being a refugee, but in the land your were born to. Having them Congo spirits walk up, them mothers and fathers and cousins, along with all them Creole spirits, leaves me standing strong in a spiritual hometown. smiling. This is what that’s like….

Faith is missing, she’s a student from Cal State Fullerton and hasn’t been seen since Monday. She attended a BET party and never returned home. I do not know her personally, however I would appreciate if you guys would reblog this post to help her family get some answers.

Here’s the source directly from the news

"You know what the problem with white people is? You don’t respect anybody’s humanity except for your own. You don’t respect anybody’s pain but your own. You expect Jewish people to hate Hitler, and to hate the Nazis… but you can’t understand why we should hate you.”
