The Global Afrikan Political Time of Day [Part 4]: The Seven Aspects of Umoja [P.1]

The Global Afrikan Political Time of Day [Part 4]:
The Seven Aspects of Umoja [P.1]

The Itikadi of an Afrocentric Pan-Afrikanism is then particularly concerned with Umoja as a means of guaranteeing the Udumishaji of the NIWT/Nu.t.

That being the case an Afrocentric Pan-Afrikanism carefully delineates the salient aspects of Umoja which center on seven primary questions. 

The questions of primary focus to the NIWT/Nu.t and of vital importance due to the high level of apprehensiveness, solicitude and responsibility which surround Umoja as the means to the survival, thriving and growth of the NIWT/Nu.t are:

1) What is Umoja in relation to the NIWT/Nu.t?

2) Why is Umoja of importance with regards of the NIWT/Nu.t?

3) For whom is Umoja of importance in respect of the NIWT/Nu.t?

4) When is Umoja of importance in respect of the NIWT/Nu.t?

5) Where or in what ways is Umoja of importance in relation to the NIWT/Nu.t?

6) What are the kinds or types of Umoja?

7) How is Umoja operationalized in the interests of the NIWT/Nu.t?

These are the questions which give structure to Umoja and provide meaning to the NIWT/Nu.t as a society of communion.

To the first question dealing with the qualities of Umoja in connection with the NIWT/Nu.t we see that Umoja is the quintessential relationship of Ujima ya Kujitegemea [Kiswahili: Communal Self-reliance].

The institutions of the NIWT/Nu.t are elucidated by Umoja as an organic oneness, an Umoja or wholeness in the sense of holistic completeness as represented by Muumba [Kiswahili: The Creator] and delineated in the Kushite/Kemet spiritual texts concerning NWT/Nu.t [Kush/Kemet: The Divine Creatrix] as an aspect of NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa [Kush/Kemet: The Great God]:

NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa is the All, the One without NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa no other exists. NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa is the One, the Creator. NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa is the Spirit, existing within all, the Spirit of Spirits, the Supreme Spirit of Kemet, the Beatific Spirit.”[1]

In the religious texts of the way ward religious offsprings of KMT/Kemet, i.e., Judaism and Christianity c. 2941- 4311 KC [c. 1300 BCE – 70 CE], texts which were developed in Kushite KMT/Kemet as well as being extensively and substantively influenced to a significant degree by the Kushite KMT/Kemet HRSŠTЗ/Herseshta [Kush/Kemet: Teachers Adept in the Sacred Wisdom][2] who were themselves, guardians of the preeminent Afrikan world spiritual system of the leading civilizations of the day; the point of their influence being held to be true especially given the length of residence of the founders of Judaism in Kushite KMT/Kemet purported by the Kushite Hebrew founders of Judaism themselves to be four hundred and thirty years,[3] and the direct correspondence between Kushite KMT/Kemet spiritual concepts dating conservatively to c. 8759 KC [c. 13000 BCE and Christian concepts dating to c. 4311 KC [c. 70 CE],[4] we find the Kushite KMT/Kemet proposition stated as follows:

“Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. . .Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.”[5]

The third of the Kushite KMT/Kemet religious prodigal children- Islam[6] whose basic chronicles were the work of the Ethiopians, Bilal and Zalbia Harith c. 4851-4873 KC [c. 610-632 CE] presents the Afrikan idea thusly:

“To Allah belong the east and the west: Whithersoever you turn there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is all-Pervading all-knowing. . .To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth. . .To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth. . .And your Allah is one Allah: There is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.”[7]

In the writings of Lao Tzu[8], c. 3641 KC [c. 600 BCE] the Kushite KMT/Kemet conceptualization of Umoja is explained in the following manner:

“Conceived of as having no name, it [The Dao, The Way] is the Originator of heaven and earth; conceived of as having a name, it [The Dao, The Way] is the Mother of all things. [The Dao, The Way] produces all things and nourishes them. . .”[9]

This organismic wholeness, which is Umoja is the NIWT/Niu.t  expression of sacred relationship as the fellowship of divinities illustrated in the specifically Afrikan Mapokeo explanation which states that the NIWT/Niu.t is people who know how to live well together and not only know but do so as well and are therefore, Walimwengu [Kiswahili: Human Beings].

The Sacred Uhusiano of Umoja is one which has the qualities of Umbuji [Kiswahili: Grace, Elegance], Umbuya [Kiswahili: Genuine Friendship], Taratibu za Mahusiano [Kiswahili: Etiquette, Mapokeo Way of Interacting] and Maasumu [Kiswahili: Blamelessness]

Fostering a sense of sociability, comradeship and mutual support Umoja is thereby an expression of the companionability, comprehensiveness and omnipresence of NWT/Nu.t, an amalgamation of the Mlimwengu microcosm with the NTR ‘З/Netcher-aa macrocosm.  

In this sense Umoja is a communion of agreement within the NIWT/Niu.t, the harmony of collective action throughout the whole of the social structure, the symmetry of mutual collaboration, the Mapokeo Mamboleo [Kush/Kemet: Neo-Traditional] coordination of communal cooperation engendering a sense of understanding and consonance of consensus on NIWT/Niu.t needs and the psychical solidarity that grows from the seamless synthesis of complementary reciprocal behaviors.
