THE AFRICAN SPIRIT KNOWS
There is an intangible but very palpable beauty and essence to African culture.
Something that's breathed, felt, perceived
Something that envelops you even as it flows and flutters through you
Something that speaks of value, pride and peace in tunes that only the spirit can understand
Something that, once felt, penetrates and molds you
Something that stays and never leaves you, but reverberates through you no matter where you are
One cannot box it up, bottle it up or transfer it
It can not be plucked or taken
But through openness of spirit and purity of heart
One can share it with those pure and open enough to receive it
The African spirit knows pride
The African spirit knows peace
The African spirit knows dignity, anchorage and heritage
The African spirit knows the magnanimous love of a mother - through culture and through nature
The African spirit knows things that cannot be plucked or taken - things that can only be shared with those open.
