In Battle with Apophis

I will not go into how I was awarded the name of All Mi T, but over the last 30 days, I will say I think I have given that label the recognition of its real value via perseverance, fortitude and commitment. I mean from what happened to me and my boy, to the current economic quagmire, the window in my truck being shot out when my son had the truck at a party, to my run in with twelve (believe me) to my shop getting beasted; prior to that my vehicle getting impounded and today finding out my great Aunt Peedy died – I must say I am in great spirits albeit a little bit angry as well as sad. But I have also realized that I am in a battle, and for lack of a cliché like phrase – of good versus evil.

Let me tell you a little bout evil. Its only desire is to distract, distort and throw you off your path. Evil is selfish and will try to bring you to the point of doubt and self pity. In simple terms it breeds fear and inaction. Now I aint no pretty boy, nor am I without sin or iniquity, but I am a good person and the spirit in me dictates a smile feels a lot better and more enjoyable than a frown any day. In concert as I have said before, that I am a blessed mutha fucka and any day is a good day to die, my goodness must show and engage in combat when confro9nted, in particular by evil. A lot of folks see evil and turn the other way as opposed to letting the righteousness of good in their heart lead the way. They can follow a great civil rights leader in an effort of freedom, but when alone, thay cannot nor will not take the same action by their lonesome.

I don’t know how to translate what I feel. Not like I am a mythical figure or something, but it is as if I am Ra, the Kemetic (Egyptian) Sun God in a battle with my arch adversary Apophis - not the asteroid names after this figure expected in 2029, but Apophis, the embodiment of “dissolution, darkness and non-being”. The ancient Egyptians retorted that Apophis needed no nourishment other than to "breathe" his own shouts. They say that Ra even enlisted the services of Seth to deal with Apophis. He was once a sun-god before being replaced by Ra and creeps in the waters of the Celestial Nile.

I feel as if Ra, each day I have to fight with Apophis, as he tries to eat me and prevent sunshine. Kemetic mythologies say that when he succeeds in his daily attempts, there is a solar eclipse. But I feel as on most days when Ra and his companion stabbed him with knives and spears and defeated him, I too will defeat evil.

All I am saying is that times are hard and obstacles will be the equivalent of infinity in math. So no matter what happens to me, I live life with love in my hard and will not have any debts to pity or sorry or self-doubt, and neither should anyone else. Yep, All Mi T is in an incessant battle with Apophis and as Pato Banton said in two of his songs “Life is a Struggle but never give in” and “settle Satan, settle Satan”. Keep your heads up folk and have a blessed 2009 – I know folk here will, as i listen to Gil Scott Heron - Legend in His Own Mind.

Addendum. Thanks to Clumps of Mascera and HBW for stopping by my shop Saturday and happy nappy birthday to my folk Kennie88.

I love this quote:

Sending condolences to you and your fam. Mom told me earlier.

You are right about evil and distraction. It appears the better you become spiritually, the more problems head your way.

Buddy: You've always got a lifeline down here. You're allowed to just go to Hartsfield with the kids and get three non-stops to Tocumen on Delta. Plenty of room and privacy for everybody. Nice safe haven to have in the wallet just in case. Don't always have to be All-Mi-T. Jones works too.

Tu amigo de corazon,

K

Thats fucked up that all that shit is happening all at once. However, its times when it all comes at once that only the strong survive. So keep do what you doing, and I'll keep you in my prayers.

March on soldier!

"Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world."

As a Christian, this is something that I believe. This is why I can walk into the fire and stand strong when fire is thrown at me. It is why I'm slow to faint and cry, and why most of the times, before tears come, the solution has already arrived. It's why when I actually cry, the tears are justified, because I have been through and survived what most would cower from. My courage comes from my belief that I am carried most times and do not walk alone. Imagine me in one of those little baby carriers strapped to my father's chest resting peacefully while he goes about his day handling the necessary business no doubt for the benefit of me and my family. It's a nice place to be.

Urban Thought said...

Sorry to hear about your lose.

Glad you keep your head on your shoulders. Not that you wouldn't anyway... But it is great that you are in good spirits.

March On.

I am sorry to hear about your aunt. But to be absent from the body is to be in the presence of the Lord.

You were on my mind pretty heavy the other day. I said a word of prayer for you and yours.

We are always in a battle against evil. You know that. And you know that you have folks around you who can and will intercede in prayer for you whenever you need it.

Hang in there T! The press just makes you grow stronger spiritually! You know that God did not give us the spirit of fear, but the Lord has given us power.

Just keep your axes sharp Torrance.

Life is war, we're all in the trenches. You're equiped to handle it, gone and do it! You'll come shining through.

My prayers are with you and your loved ones.

Hampton06 said...

happy new year man! did they catch the fools who broke into your spot?

rainywalker said...

In real life RA must be very, very good to beat Apophis. This is a sad world when good people get speared in the ass by the scum on the street with a brick! May your Aunt rest in peace.

Saule Wright said...

Hey jones, glad you are standing tall in the face of adversity. As one of the Original Kings of the first society, you got it honest man. Continue to be the beacon for your son a standout light in this world so that others too can do the same for others. Generations for Generations. Peace to your and yours, one King to another.

You have my condolences for the transition of your Great-Aunt Peedy.

These are additional war wounds, all great leaders have them.

Keep your boots tight, shoulders back and head held high. I trust that you and your seeds will stay in light & love, regardless of the circumstances.

*lookin for my 1.5's*

cordieb said...

Stay positive Dawg! Although you may feel you are in a battle of good an evil, I would have to say you are drawing negative energy to yourself by your thoughts or actions or inactions. Negative energies can be brought upon oneself by negative thoughts - although the thoughts may never be spoken. Be conscious of all your actions and be even more conscious of all your thoughts. . . . you will have to begin to bring positive energy into your life very soon!

Blessings for 2009 my spirtual brother! Peace, Light and Love to you and yours. . . CordieB.
