As I See It

Never Hate Yourself

By Hakim Abdul-Ali At this present time, our country and the rest of the world are going through some very difficult times. The dreaded COVID-19 virus, also known as coronavirus, is plaguing the earth and it, seemingly, has the world in its deadly, mystifying grip as of this column’s publication. It’s  also at this time…

Love for All is a Feeling Worth Initiating

By Hakim Abdul-Ali The world we live in today is full of all sorts of political twists, racial dilemmas and numerous secret prejudicial agendas. I don’t think any reasonable, clear thinking American ethnic soul in “hue-manity” can, or would, deny that. I’m a concerned American brother of color, and that’s a pretty real scenario for…

Respecting the Creator Alone of It All

By Hakim Abdul-Ali One thing an experienced “hue-man” understands about life after a while is that there are differences galore everywhere you turn and look in the living process. That fact alone should humble us all, including me and you, to try to exist with others, even with those who are vehemently opposed to us,…

Who’s Better Than You?

By Hakim Abdul-Ali Today I’m just going to be very candid with my vibrations, and it’s about the negatives which so many of the world’s ethnic folk have about themselves.

Another Day at the Office

By Hakim Abdul-Ali We all are living in this present moment while existing in the only arena that I know of that’s called life. Some of us cherish this pristine opportunity with spiritual significance, and some others obviously take it for granted that they are blessed to be in the here and now. In my…

There’s No Need to Complain

By Hakim Abdul-Ali The living experience is full of tests, ordeals, disappointments and unimaginative upheavals for every created “hue-man” soul in the universe, including me and you. There’s no denying that in any shape, manner or form. To further illustrate that point, something occurred on my watch last week where I had to reflect on…

Feeling Awesome

By Hakim Abdul-Ali I just thought about something and that’s it’s okay to feel mellow in the present moment. Some folk in “hue-manity” may not comprehend that reality, but it’s healthy to be existing in a sound mental frame of mind while living in an equally positive living space. That may not always be the…
