So, if you’ve met me the past year or two…when thinking of me….you may recall I consider myself a student of all religions. A Gnostic. I’ve simply… for lack of a better word…. engrossed myself within the Hebrew language. Today, specifically….I was studying the word, REMEMBRANCE, moreso for reasons pertaining to #Synchronicities and #SPIRITSCIENCE . When we learn to think #Hebraically —- well, we can gain a deeper understanding of the scriptures and, as a result, live out our lives in a more complete and balanced way. What’s interesting when researching worldly religions, the Semites of Bible times did not simply THINK truth, they EXPERIENCED it. And, as I have previously shared and emphasized in my blogs, TRUTH is as much encounter, experience as it is a scheme.
This experimental play on words reveals, in part, why #Judaism never really developed vast systems of thought, at least here in the United States. To the Jews, from what I have gathered…the DEED was always more important than the CREED.
This Hebraic kindred spirit of sorts, connects thought and experience and is heavily reflected in the meanings of some of the words I’ve read in the Bible. For example, EMUNAH, the Hebrew word FAITH in Habakkuk 2:4 (the just shall live by his faith) — exhibits the feelings of constancy, steadiness or sure-footedness. Biblical faith…then is so much more than our elementary agreement or understanding to certain doctrines….it is unwavering trust that may indeed be backed up by ACTIONS.
#ZAKAR — the Hebrew word for #REMEMBER .
Many of us may think of #Memory as a purely #MENTAL faculty involving the #RETENTION of #KNOWLEDGE or #INFORMATION — but when we truly examine…. and or #INNERSTAND — what is #TRUTH ?? Well, to me… it eventually leads in some at least, …. a most #PURPOSEFUL #ACTION — understanding of the very essence of their SOUL. It awakens the adept to deeper meanings of his EXISTENCE. True #Enlightenment = #REMEMBRANCE — #REMEMBERING a fundamental aspect in the grand scheme. This happens only after lifetimes of lessons in secret doctrines, of sorts and only comes to those that seeks it.
ZAKAR is almost always translated “REMEMBER,” in the King James version of the HOLY BIBLE. Occasionally, though, it is rendered as “THINK, RECORD or MENTION.” These variations in translation provides an indication that ZAKAR includes both #THOUGHT and #DEED .
All this being said…. IS it so hard to fathom that GOD may want us ALL to do more than just be #AWARE of the fact he IS….. ?? Is it possible that GOD is urging us to take #POSITIVE action to help save #HUMANITY — #OURSELVES ??
IN the Hebrew scriptures, it also outlines and or defines ZAKAR (REMEMBER) — as closely relating to the #ONE true #DIVINE #Creator #GOD….. “Remembering…” HIS Covenant with his #PEOPLE — #ABRAHAM , #ISAAC , and with #JACOB . (Exodus 2:24) In this instance, GOD, remembering HIS promise…. leads to HIS active participation/intervention to #RESCUE #ISRAEL from #Slavery . This connection is unquestionable.
Numbers 10:9 – “And if ye go to war in your land against the #ENEMY that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your GOD, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.”
The word ZAKAR appears prominently in scripts recorded within all religions. Such thought calls upon GOD not just to be #Cognizant or #AWARE of our very #EXISTENCE — but also to take action on #Humanities behalf. Does it not?
These scriptures instruct the people to remember the commandments. Example, in DEUT. 8:18; Joshua 1:13; Eccl. 12:1.) “Moses commands the Israelite’s to remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way. Here it seems Moses wants them to take decisive action against the terrorists who had ruthlessly attacked the most vulnerable Israelite’s during the early stages of their journey from EGYPT.
By now many of us have seen that REMEMBRANCE is so much more than just a #MENTAL exercise. Instead, it is a recognition that either leads to or results from an #APPROPRIATE #ACTION / #CAUSE . Let us remember GOD/GODDESS in our lives and in our #Studies — #MEDITATION — trusting that our #DIVINE #CREATORS will REMEMBER their #Promises and bring us all to a full understanding/INNERsranding .
Lastly, all of these examples in which the word ZAKAR is mentioned entails a simple #KNOWLEDGE that is accompanied by our #ACTION . How YOU define/discern/REMEMBER … is all up to YOU.
Armed protesters continue to occupy a building at a national wildlife refuge in Oregon as they argue that father and son Dwight Hammond, 73 and Steven Hammond, 46, who are headed back to prison are being sent there unfairly.

After a rally for the Hammonds on Saturday, armed militia, including sons of Cliven Bundy — who was involved in a standoff with the government over grazing rights in Nevada in 2014 — initiated the occupation of the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
Ammon Bundy called the earlier rally successful, but said Sunday of the Wildlife Refuge standoff, “If we do not make a hard stand, we will be in a position where we won’t be able to as a people.”
Bundy said the occupying group is called “Citizens for Constitutional Freedom” and its purpose is to “restore and defend the Constitution.”
He said he came to the Burns, Oregon, area about eight weeks ago and met with the Hammonds “many, many times.”
“I watched them in tears multiple times,” he said.
Bundy today called the Hammonds a “good ranching family” and said they are going to prison for a crime they did not commit.
Just three years ago the two were convicted of burning “federal land” in Oregon. Dwight served three months in prison on the conviction, and his son, Steven served one year. In October, however, a federal judge ruled the pair had served too little time under a federal anti-terrorism law that requires a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years for fires that damage public property but cause no injury or death. The two were ordered back to prison to serve four years each. They reported to prison to serve their sentences earlier today.
In the video below BPEarthWatch (www.bpearthwatch.com )breaks down the truth behind the armed occupation currently happening now and touches on blatant government corruption unfolding right under the noses of American tax payers.
According to The Washington Post, the FBI has taken the lead on the investigation of the federal building saying, that it will work with local and state authorities to seek “a peaceful resolution to the situation.”
“Due to safety considerations for both those inside the refuge as well as the law enforcement officers involved, we will not be releasing any specifics with regards to the law enforcement response,” the FBI said in a statement.

“Be very serious, be focused. You got nothing to lose in this game by being consistent, and not just thinking you are going to get in and make 100 million dollars, cause that’s not going to happen. Make a career; I rather sell 10 million records over ten years than 10 million records once, it’s a business,” Chris Lighty.
For many Chris Lighty will be remembered as one of the most powerful figures in the hip hop business. A fundamental key player in transforming the rap game from being grimey to appealing to mainstream media, ushering in the era of white collared hip hop moguls.

Brokering some of the biggest deals in hip hop music with entities like Sprite and Coca Cola. The brain behind 50 cents’energy drink which netted the rapper more than $400 million dollars and negotiating LL Cool J’sGap endorsement back in 1999, which was one of the most genius case studies in hip hop to date. It was also momentous due to the fact that LL Cool J was the first rapper to ever be called on to endorse a mainstream apparel company.
LL Cool J:
“Jeans popping in every mall in town and city. G-A-P gritty, ready to go, for us, by us, on the low,” he rapped.
And that right there ya’ll was something sales and marketing experts like to call, ‘guerilla marketing 101.’ With the help of Chris Lighty, the hip hop icon was able to incorporate a little somethin somethin for his financial interests, on the sly…promoting all things, ‘FUBU.’
To be given the opportunity to endorse a company as big as Gap and then successfully add a smaller apparel name to the final product was straight, ‘gangsta.’ As you can see from the video above, LL Cool J also rocked a FUBU hat during his commercial spot.
Lighty also claimed to have been instrumental in hooking up Gee and his client Drake with a Sprite endorsement, saying, “Here’s a quick $850,000, let’s get busy baby.”
Chris Lighty’s focal point was to build rappers and their brands without sacrificing their connections to their hood.
The New York Times called him “one of the most powerful figures in the hip-hop business.”
According to Forbes, Lighty merged Violator with Primary Wave Talent Management to form Primary Violator Management last year, in a move that could have potentially brought even bigger deals.
The 44-year-old reportedly owed the IRS $5 million in taxes.
Despite the entrepreneur taking his own life, his portfolio is very impressive and his work speaks for itself. He leaves a legacy for his family, friends, fans and entrepreneurs alike. So as we ponder over his reasons of why he did what he did…let’s stop. Focus on what he left behind for the seasoned professionals as well as the up and coming entertainers/entrepreneurs that find themselves immersed in the music industry, an industry that many have sacrificed so much to be in. An industry that is built for the strong, not the weak or the naysayers.
Lighty had immeasurable impact on the music industry and has left a clear path to success for those that choose it. His platform makes it possible for a generation of entertainers to learn and flourish.
In a 2010 interview Lighty shared his thoughts on what it takes to make it in the music business and leaves us with an uncanny quote on the industry and his life….watch the video below.
“Be very serious, be focused. You got nothing to lose in this game by being consistent, and not just thinking you are going to get in and make 100 million dollars, cause that’s not going to happen. Make a career; I rather sell 10 million records over ten years than 10 million records once, it’s a business. Everybody fronting like the money is nonstop, it’s nonstop until it stops. I’ve seen a lot of people come and go in the game so, I plan to be here until I decide I don’t wanna be here know more,” Lighty said.
Gandhi famously said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” I don’t doubt that, in recent years, Lighty did just that. Lighty made the rap game more beautiful and his family, friends, fans, colleagues, clients loved him for it. Lighty made the rap game more ideal, and the billions of us with no voice will be forever impacted.
