Flaunting any excessive or anti-social behavior is considered brazen. When it is no longer considered brazen it is proof that it has become embedded as part of our culture. Not to say this is a good thing Cheap Bears Jersey , after all headhunting was considered a cultural norm in some societies. The question to ask here may be, was rap ever truly a part of our culture? Will it eventually run out of steam and go the way of things like doing the twist, afro haircuts or break dancing? I for one would argue that it is not truly a part of the American cultural scene, but is a forced, twisted and contrived money machine that appeals to only the basest passions of the youth in our country.

Long before the "gangsta" element slid over to "hip hop" the reasoning for the whole genre and style was generally purported to be Riley Ridley Bears Jersey , to show what life in the "hood" was like. That worked for a while and it even drew more sympathy from the otherwise estranged. But as lower passions would have it, the style and language of rap began more and more to take on a life and purpose of its own, namely?sex. If by some magic stroke sex were temporarily extricated from every rappers thoughts and vocabulary, the entire industry would collapse quicker than the stock market in 1929. Now that's brazen!

Referring to rappers as artist and giving them full press doesn't guarantee that it is really an art form, all it says is that its here. But was it here before? Does it really have anything to do with the African American background David Montgomery Bears Jersey , culture or heritage? I propose that it does not. Very few whites have succeeded in rap but even that does not prove that it is necessarily a black cultural thing. Growing up as a boy there were only two black families in our town. One of the boys from those families was my best friend. But to say that gave me even a basic knowledge of the African American culture would be an exaggeration. Later I arrived in the city of New Orleans just after the civil rights laws were passed. My exposure to the black culture increased exponentially. Finally I attended two seminaries the last of which was part of the National Baptist Convention a purely African American denomination. What I discovered about the African American culture will always be one of the greatest excursions of my entire life.

Our entire class would sit before some of the most dignified black gentlemen, professors and wait for the streams of their thoughts, opinion and knowledge to flow down to us. Most exciting was when they shifted their emphasis away from the curriculum and began to divulge elements of their private lives and their past. Life in New Orleans as a black man or women was no easy thing. Stories of their upbringing and their struggles would leave anyone with their heart in their throat. These old gentlemen for me were living examples of courage dignity and the best human qualities. What I learned about black culture in short is this. African Americans have a deep and ancient past; they are people with a lasting heritage.

I am sure that the blatant indulgence of sexual descriptive and four letter words that is rap's most prevalent aspect, is not part of their ancient culture and history. It does not accurately depict their culture, their history or any other part of their experience. I don't think my protesting is such a big deal. But I'd guess that if my old seminary professors could see and hear today's rap Akiem Hicks Bears Jersey , you would hear the roar raising up from their graves and billowing down many an American avenue.

Rev Bresciani has written many articles over the past thirty years in such periodicals as Guideposts and Catholic Digest. He is the author of two books available on , Alibris, Barnes and Noble and many other places. Rev Bresciani wrote, Hook Line and Sinker or What has Your Church Been Teaching You, published by PublishAmerica of Baltimore MD. He also wrote a book recently released by Xulon Press entitled An American Prophet and His Message Tarik Cohen Bears Jersey , Questions and Answers on the Second Coming of Christ. Rev Bresciani has his own website at If the aspirant (Yogavacara) who is doing the practice knows that his Citta has become free, ana if at that time he has Reviewing-Knowledge (Paccavekkhana-Nanฺa), his Citta does not expand.1 The reason for this is given under the heading of Stage 4, which says that we must have mindfulness to watch and be the master of the sense doors.

When objects arise and die away within the fields of the senses, one must be aware of them. If one is then aware of them Mitchell Trubisky Bears Jersey , one has Understanding (Vijja). If one is not aware of them, one has Ignorance (Avijja). In this, the eye-door is not important, for the eye is like a telescope, and it is the man who looks through the telescope that matters Anthony Miller Bears Jersey , and not the instrument itself. Similarly, the ear is like a radio receiver, and it is the man who hears that matters, and not the radio set. In the same way, the man who smells odours Roquan Smith Bears Jersey , savours, and who feels contacts, is the one who matters, and not the instruments of these senses.

One should therefore only be concerned with that which is of importance; being that which accepts the mental-objects which are received by the mind.2

The mind is chief.3 The mind is to be found within the Mind-Door. When an object comes within the sphere of one of the external sense doors, the sensation is very rapidly conveyed to the mind where it becomes known; this is like messages which are conveyed along telephone wires. Because of this Khalil Mack Bears Jersey , one should not watch the other sense-dooars, which would only make difficulties, but watch the mind-door alone, which is quite sufficient.

When the person who is doing the practice uses mindfulness to guard the doors, then he must do so by watching the mind-door only. When objects come within the field of the senses and the ensuing sensations give rise to knowledge Walter Payton Bears Jersey , he must not look anywhere other than the mind-doo.
