Afrikan's spiritual unity stems from our unity of worldview; something we once had before others imposed their worldview on us. At the foundation of that worldview were the concepts/analytical tools of microcosmicism, anthropocentrism, and the reproductive metaphor. You can explain Afrikan cultures and spiritual systems using these three concepts. These concepts developed over thousands of years based on the experiences of the Afrikan hunter--did you hear me--thousands of years. As is the case in culture, these ideas were passed down to subsequent cultural formation, such as the herders and farmers. resulting in an implicit unity that underlies all Afrikan cultures. That means that despite different cultural and language groups and their unique environments, Afrikan cultures share identical spiritual intentionalities that include the concepts of unity, harmony, reciprocity, sacrifice, taboo, and order.
Harmony, with its idea of masculine and feminine complementarity, is the essence of Afrikan thought. Most readers are familiar with the Chinese concept of Yin and Yang, but few are aware of the Afrikan idea of harmony, a belief that radiated throughout Afrikan societies. Harmony became a basic principle of cosmology; it was the motif of cosmogony; it gave birth to the reproductive metaphor; it defined the relationship between deities, Nature and culture, sacrifice and taboo; it ordered physical space; it was the form architecture took; it provided the pattern for literature; it determined gender roles. In essence, harmony defined Afrikan life — the entirety.
If we as a people are to regain our power in this world, then it must start with worldview. Look at the map above. Once the entire continent according to the about legend, would have been light green. Today, alien worldviews, which are best express in religious systems dominate our landscape and mindset. We will never be a free proud, productive and powerful people as long as our sense of agency is European, Arab, or even Asian--it must be Afrikan--Pan Afrikan at that!!!
