Principles, Pledges, & Proverbs part 4

Greta Umoja:

The Tribe is the source of all human development and progression. All of our perceptions of life and reality come from the principles of the tribe we live in. How we view ourselves and what we think we can accomplish is limited by the thinking of the Tribe. Great principles and proverbs are like little tools that, with use, can help shape the thinking of those who would follow our way. This discussion is an introduction to those devices and the language we use to express them as well as how they apply to Tribe life. Proverbs and wisdom literature is a huge source of information and ideas for the tribe. Here we will learn how these short sayings can help build our lens as well as control our actions to let us become a part of the Gye-Nyame Tribe.

In addition to the above we will also be sharing a tradition that has been practiced by our Tribe for years. Everyone is looking for a way to better understand the ideals of Gye Nyame while becoming a cohesive community. This has been a struggle of our people which has often been addressed by the questions presented before the Initiate.

Here is your proverb:

"Sorrow may sadden your face but it sharpens your understanding."
