How Do You Become a God?

We all may have heard or read this bit by now—that “what” is within you is greater than “that” without. It sounds mundane until you have had a chance to read some of the Ancient African texts from which these pieces of wisdom were yanked. Many of those texts also maintain that “you are Gods.” Whether you like it or not.

However, how does one accept that She is indeed a God? How does one begin to feel like a God? How does one really become a God?

The answer from a Warrior Philosopher’s point of view is straightforward. If you take “things” that you don’t control or have any control over, and you define these “things” as either “good” or “bad” then life becomes hairy and the chance to become a God grows ever more evasive.

When you label this or that as either good or bad, then when the bad things happen—or when the good things don’t happen—you blame the Gods who you claim (or accept) have control over those things. You even feel hatred for the people who gave you those Gods to begin with, since you deem them responsible.

For instance, the son of a Vodun mother goes wayward and accepts Jesus as his lord and personal savior. When something bad happens in his life, he blames Jesus, or he blames the pastor who gave him Jesus, or yet he blames his mother, and his mother’s Gods! Same with the child of a Catholic pastor who adopts the Gods of Nogokpo. When something goes bad, he blames Shango or the next God.

Much of our Godless behavior stems from trying to apply this criterion to much of everything around us—it is either “good” or “bad.” However, if we limited “good” and “bad” to our own Actions, that is, if we limited good and bad to the results of our own Actions and Inactions, we would have no call to challenge any Gods, or to treat those who give us these Gods, as our enemies.

It is there and then that you wield power. You are now a God! You are now in charge.

Why is this important? It is important for one major reason—you have no other Gods to blame but yourself. And as a God, you can adjust! This goes even deeper! If you don’t call your Ancestral Village Life as primitive, aka “bad,” and if you don’t call London’s Industrial Parks as civilized, aka “good,” then you have no reason to expect that your Vodun mother walk around in high-heels with lip gloss to look attractive!

Which means that you become responsible for your own civilization, and anyone who attempts to take it from you would have to acquiesce to your wrath as a God. Better, any people who want to impoverish you will instantly become your enemies. You will not need their Gods. You will not need Jesus. You will only adore Gods that are expressions of yourself! You will drive out foreign Gods! Then, you will have no use for foreign industries that do not benefit you. You will have no need for those foreign mis-educational systems either!

What you need: You will only need Yourselves! For, “You are all Gods! All of You!”

~ Success is a horrible teacher. It seduces the ignorant into thinking that he can’t lose. It seduces the intellectual into thinking that he must win. Success corrupts; Only usefulness exalts. ~ WP. Narmer Amenuti (which names translate: Dances With Lions), was born by The River, deep within the heartlands of Ghana, in Ntoaboma. He is a public intellectual from the Sankoré School of Critical Theory, where he trained and was awarded the highest degree of Warrior Philosopher at the Temple of Narmer. As a Culture Critic and a Guan Rhythmmaker, he is a dilettante, a dissident and a gadfly, and he eschews promotional intellectualism. He maintains strict anonymity and invites intellectuals and lay people alike to honest debate. He reads every comment.

  1. So in the Kemetic sacred writings/words/divine speech, etc., (which is the same thing in traditional Afrikan systems afterward, it was taught that the “divinity”, was within. The divine status could be attained by initiation. In that initiation, the Afrikan was elevated in consciousness, and spirit, into dive hood. lower self to higher self.

    At that time i our story, we were our Afrikan selves. There were no whites or any others around us. We saw the divine through our cultural prism, and later when we had anthropomorphic representations, they looked like us. The Creator/Creatress/God/Goddess, is always in your own image, because why would it look like someone else you had never seen, or knew anything about?

    This was all changed with the so called westernized and eastern religions, because the images were changed to reflect the people of those cultures, and then it was taught that the image was universal for all. This is false. The divinity will always look like you, and it should.

    This is our main problem today. We have been looking at other people as God, and not ourselves. All we have to do is study our own scripture, and what our ancestors taught.

    The Book of Life, Book of Coming forth from night onto day, Oracle of Tehuti, and all our traditional Afrikan beliefs, are all we need!!!!!

  2. Oh Narmer, the Mehta does not want to take responsibility and be his own god, he just wants to drive his bmw. Can’t you see? Das auto is his god. And all the engineers who put the car parts together. What do you mean go back to walking barefoot so I can worship the image of my own toes? Good luck convincing the Mehta he has something to learn from himself and his culture. He comes with a hard top.

  3. I am not African and I am unfortunately, American. I want to make this known so people will know I am not a spy or a troll, but rather I am here to gain higher learning and understanding.

    I have never read something relating to all you have spoken about in the articles I have read, that made so much sense to me.

    I’ve been studying Kemetic culture for a few years now and have studied other cultures within Africa for various years previously. The more I read about African spirituality and culture, the more I realize just how deeply all the world has been deceived. I am deeply passionate about learning real history, real spirituality, and seeking real guidance.

    I am honestly humbled by the respect I am given and the kindness I receive from African people’s regardless of their religious or spiritual choosing. All whom I encounter are very generous, friendly and kind.
    For these reasons and many others, I am very grateful.

    Thank you for allowing me to be a student here. It is truly appreciated.
