A meeting with Nehanda and Kaguvi at the House of Stone

And they said:

“Reclaim your lands and rivers,

Define your culture,

Feed your families,

Write your history,

Control your economy,

Develop your education,

Cultivate your arts and crafts,

Live by your laws,

Practice your religion,

Realise your wealth,

Understand nature’s endowments…

And your godly originality, but also

Be aware of your conditioning,

Study your foes and your conspirators’ methods of warfare,

Master their language as much as yours,

Understand their motives and the nature of their institutions — 

All this to better defend yourself.

Above all, know yourself,

And let your consciousness create your world.”
