The joys and perils of cultural Dualism; PART 1 We wake up everyday to the astonishing fact that our culture is not what it used to be and further more most of the cultural practices are not relevant anymore.. Now it’s a confusing state of affairs for most of who want to be grounded in one culture and yet want to enjoy the fruits of modernity.. Some decide that one has to give way in my opinion that’s a dangerous call. Cultural Dualism is the existence of two different and competing cultural structures in a society or an individual’s life system. The conflicting or competing cultural structures often require a pivot to resolve the dissatisfaction.. As much as it’s a feeble point to make but religion has always provided the common grounds to resolve the conflict. By providing common interests, modernity is not lost and Africanism finds purpose in a place called christianity. One of the under-looked pros of Dualism the introduction of differing philosophies by which one can compare and contrast and make a well informed decision in regards to life style, reconciliation and education. Christianity gives way to the philosophy of grace. With the intent of rubbing away the a looming guilt that renders our minds captive. The philosophy of Grace introduces a walk way that allows one to view God as a forgiver not a punisher, a friend not a highly placed being waiting to crash him or her when sin takes a hold of oneself. In a bid to understand the role culture in shaping an individual, we need to understand the things or forces that shape culture. “The best lifestyles never have extremes but are well balanced and are ignited by purpose and a desire to create positive influence.” S.M.S

Is it just me or something is not right

The world i know

Well some will pronounce the word as erections but its elections. Anyway that depends on one’s dialect. That aside its increasingly hard to determine the boundaries between sanity and insanity, right and wrong, ethical and unethical.

Then increasing bandwagon effect that boda boda riders have on the candidate’s mind to believe that he or she is in control. But this is simple just buy them t-shirts , fuel for 10000 shillings and they will do the job.

Loyalty, democracy and the rest of these lies I’m thinking these are illusory  concoctions   in the dictionary. just saying!? but with the presence of crime preventers every thing will be fine. So my simple words are stay home and relax go vote and mind your business. Does it matter who you support? I’m thinking it’s a three in one jacket which every side you choose to dress it on, it still does…

Is it just me or something is not right

Well some will pronounce the word as erections but its elections. Anyway that depends on one’s dialect. That aside its increasingly hard to determine the boundaries between sanity and insanity, right and wrong, ethical and unethical.

Then increasing bandwagon effect that boda boda riders have on the candidate’s mind to believe that he or she is in control. But this is simple just buy them t-shirts , fuel for 10000 shillings and they will do the job.

Loyalty, democracy and the rest of these lies I’m thinking these are illusory  concoctions   in the dictionary. just saying!? but with the presence of crime preventers every thing will be fine. So my simple words are stay home and relax go vote and mind your business. Does it matter who you support? I’m thinking it’s a three in one jacket which every side you choose to dress it on, it still does the same thing, Keep you warm from the days of nepotism a, corruption, tribalism, exploitation and a bad economy.

It’s one of the reasons we invest so much time and billions  in these elections. It’s simple truth, we are an economic super power equated to none. We have developed our reputation for being a democratic country that’s why we do not need the EU to monitor our elections or erections if you might say.

It’s okay people you do not have to misquote the policeman i think we all just have hearing defects every one if free to express their disgust as long as they do it his way . so as you can see everything is so high in the club we just feel like relaxing. It’s okay!

We are a country of kingdoms, it would not hurt if we all just became one big happy kingdom under one democratic king!? then we shall not run off to Eritrea in search for better economies to harbor our so called discomfort.

Hear me, it’s all the same West, East, South and North it’s all the same. Well the difference is the police is in  a better position to manage the state of affairs, are they? Yes, yes of course given the fact that they receive their orders from above and by this i mean heaven, See now you know we are guarded by an angelic force.

It’s the reason Bob Marley said those words, when you listen to a song over and over again you even start to edit the lyrics for the artist. Uhmm i only wish that he had featured in our national anthem so we can listen to the roots in our song maybe it would not grow old.

Oh my the boredom that comes with that song it’s just hilarious that we still just dance to it’s tunes anyway. Anyway that’s why we are ugandans we just love music in whichever form it comes.

Truth is i will not allow pessimism in my heart because we are the pearl of Africa the best economy the best everything. Even our roads are at first world class. yah thats all i will say for now

 

 

Fiction and the tale

It’s a true story at the beginning of every movie, a reality show before reality checks in but perhaps it’s just another tunnel so to say. The truth of the matter is, a man must speak of his heart’s desires. Compare the foot prints of a man in love but never spits out his intentions to a man who will get a simple resolve to tell the lady how he feels and he does.

Okay not to lengthen  the matter, the issue at hand is that with all teeth that are surrounding our tongues! Find room to lift it and speak. The voice of a man will save nations but his satisfaction will always be that he found boldness in his heart to follow his convictions.

    Some will speak of the beauties life has so gifted them with, other the riches and unending pleasure. however when a man settles in his heart to find value added to him, he arrives at the conclusion that no conclusion can ever be made.

Life at some given point feels like the endless trail to a fantasy world of peace. Even the richest say they have the formula only for them to end up in entanglement, to end up like worthless piles of bed ridden flesh and bones.

    Tell me then how useful are the things we fight for? how useful is the power a man craves for? How important are the riches and lands we so fight for, killing each other only to leave all these when we are gone.

 Alas! I say unto the soul it is only for the joy of the heart, so no matter how rich you are , no matter how famous you are, find the time to take a seat with the old man, to listen to his tales and feel the tremble in his voice. Find your wife and children join them for every meal if you can, if your mother has not slept the sleep between worlds hold her hand and kiss it for her pain gave you life.

Always watch the sun before it sets

If your lover loves you no more then find then one that treasures you, Life unfortunately if too short to be invested in the things that don’t count. Take time to laugh at  yourself and be wise not call people friends. Not all are what they claim to be. As a young man i have decided that no matter what i do i will always find my feet to return home at the end of the day, take a cup of  tea, a glass of red wine 15% alcohol, call my family laugh with them and  visit my true friends because they have made me.

 Pray every day, live the life i can afford, run every day and chase my dreams, love Malaika and give space to all the people and things that feel inconvenienced by my presence because the feeling of rejection is among the worst a man should harbor. I have found that true forgiveness begins with me then others.

The depth of My findings in this life is deep but i will leave you with this. Do not fool yourself, always be true to you then you will be true to others.
