10 the Hard Way


I was driving yesterday and out of nowhere a chick and her 2 children (I’m assuming) started jaywalking in front of me. I didn’t stop. It has always been a fantasy of mine to hit a stupid pedestrian and get away with it. I never proclaimed to be a nice person…. But it got me to thinking…. Are parents no longer teaching their children life skills?

When I was a child, my mother used to bark orders at me. Back then parents could not only publicly issue justice (10:SA), they were encouraged to. So my mother would say do so and so, and it got done or we got beat down and it still got done. And they were beat downs compared to the watered down spankings of today. Doesn’t make sense to get your ass kicked and still have to do the things you got your ass kicked for. But after my mother barked, she would lightly explain the reasoning for the order… after you completed her task.

“When you fry chicken you need to season it over night so the flavor goes to the bone.” “You have to dry dishes by hand if you don’t want them to have spots.” “You really need to check your tone with your father when you ask for something.” “Go put some color on your face so you can look like a girl, but not so much you look like a dressed chicken.” “Keep good manners, because it doesn’t matter what you have or who you know, you’ll still look ignorant if you’re rude.” And so forth. My mother is still doling out not exactly advice, but orders with explanations. Advice implies that you asked for it….

Jupiter has 63 moons. Did you read that? 63 effing moons! Some of those moons are as large as Earth. I cee that to mean mothers/Jupiter brings Equality to your life by first giving you her Understanding in a way that leads the babies to their own Understanding. 3+3=6. My mother barked her orders but they had explanations behind them. In instances where I clearly was the one who had to make decisions, she insisted that said decisions be made in a way that they had explanations behind them. Now it didn’t work out as she would have liked. I did learn there was no mystery god (10:40) But I also learned that I am a force to be reckoned with on my own and I can spin on my own axis at 93 million miles from the Sun (10:AF) and even keep a moon of my own in my orbit if I choose to.

So what are these new mothers teaching their children? Learning isn’t just something that happens in schools. Your family is your1st teacher. Yes schools teach reading, Writing and arithmetic, but they won’t touch you if you can’t walk, talk, and shit on your own. That’s for your peeps to teach. But what happens if your parents teach you some bullshit? You keep repeating it. That’s a generational curse; eating the wrong food (10:36). Acting without Knowledge or Understanding of what and why you are doing; and passing that shit on to your progeny. I’m certain the chicken head who tried to walk in front of my truck didn’t say to her children, “And that’s why you don’t cross the street in the middle of the block.” She probably uttered a string of profanity and gave me the finger. She did seem annoyed and I saw the finger. So in Knowledge Cipher years those same girls will grow up to be chicken heads with their own children, crossing the street how they want. And when they or their babies get hurt they won’t see it as their faults, walking in the street but the faults of drivers who drive their cars where they are supposed to.

I guess when you mix that in with today’s Supreme mathematics, it encourages me do the knowledge to my birth record (10:10); how I was raised. By doing that from time to time, I get insight on how I’d raise my own seed/soil. Mommie was rough and tough… she’d punch me in my chest and tell me to man up… but I made it to adulthood and I’m not a knucklehead living at home in the projects with 15 babies by 18 different men on Maury Povich trying to figure out the father of my 12th child while living on assistance eat a pickled pig ear sandwich moonlighting as a stripper. I have some issues, and we all have at least 4 devils that need murdering (10:14), but I have a relatively good life and I appear normal. So I think she gets a B- for raising me. I could have used a few hugs, though…

So do the Knowledge to your Cipher, people! Unbeknownst to you, people are watching you, emulating you, learning from you. Make sure what you put out there will aid the person who is paying attention.
