This book "Movement Of Stillness" reveals the New Mayan Calandar post 2012 as channeled by Jacqui Derbecker from Edgar Cayce. Cayce was a well-known mystic philosopher, seer, channelor, and author. He lived from 1877-1945. Jacqui felt honoured and priviledged to channel/streamline, through automatic writing, about 100 prophecies which are revealed in complete detail. By channeling Cayce she was able to clearly visualize the authentic and exciting New Mayan Calandar which she states, "it's not exactly what some perceive it to be." Jacqui explains, "there are only positive high vibrational messages represented by the Mayan's predictions and not ones of mass destruction." She advises that now is the time to make "living in Spirit" a reality as we move into a higher realm of truth and a natural original way of being. These prophecies are called the "All Truths" or "Crystal Messages of Truth". Each touch upon the daily living aspects of: career, relationships, financial, emotional, physical, mind, spirit and our sense of community. They speak directly to each and everyone of us regarding the releasing of old barriers and awakening to your authentic self. Thus creating a sense of stillness and peace.
In the parlance of social psychology, social work, and urban social scientists, African American fathers have often been described as "absent," "missing," "non-residential," "non-custodial," "unavailable," "non-married," "irresponsible," and "immature." It is wondered why it is/was so difficult to find literature, research, and comments regarding positive attributes of African American families in general and African American fathers in particular. This book fills a void in attempting to offer a broader picture regarding the status of African American males in a father role. The purpose is to get beyond the African American father "invisibility" syndrome and gloom and doom pathology oriented labels and tell another side of the story about the power of fathering in the African American experience. The book brings these "invisible" social and biological fathers to life by telling their stories and letting the reader hear and feel the vibrancy of their voices as they struggle to meet the challenges of being fathers and Black men in America. Black Fathers: An Invisible Presence in America is divided into four sections: *Part I offers some research and theory regarding the impact of fathers on the lives of their children. *In Part II, reactions and experiences from those men who had active, involved, and committed Black men in their lives as they were growing up are shared. *In Part III, stories are shared from African American men who had problematic relationships with their fathers, but who put forth the time, energy, and effort to work through the issues. *The primary focus of Part IV is on how to strengthen the role of Black fathers, father figures, and social fathers in family life and child rearing by discovering and internalizing psychological strengths anchored in African American psychological themes, African values, and spirituality. This book will appeal to scholars and researchers in the fields of race/ethnic relations, family studies, and Black studies.
I see many examples of how the children have not been made a priority in many African American families. It seems that many African American men are content to produce children and then simply walk away from most, if not all of the financial, emotional and psychological responsibilities that serve as the foundation of parenting. Baby Daddy Disorder is a reality check on what is terribly wrong in the African American community. Families are the core of every issue that plagues our community. Alcoholism, obesity and poor health, economic hardship, education, crime and violence are just a few elements that need improvement within the African American community. Each one of these elements could be tackled more strategically if families were intact or if parents could work together as a team to ensure success for their children. It's been said that "It takes a village to raise a child." Even if grandmother, aunts and uncles create and work in the village, father's need to step up, man up and get up so that they can fulfill their role in the village.
