“And every one has a goal to which he turns (himself), so vie with one another in good works. Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all together. Surely Allah is Possessor of power over all things. And from whatsoever place thou comest forth, turn thy face towards the Sacred Mosque. And surely it is the truth from thy Lord. And Allah is not heedless of what you do.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 2, verses 148-149
At the root of the true “Cultural Revolution” is the Battle of Ideas and Human Destiny in the Quest for the Knowledge of God and the Knowledge of Self, based upon Greater Truth and Understanding. We live a whole lifetime in this pursuit. The Cuban Initiative has produced accumulative levels of experiences for everyone who participated in this far-reaching educational probe and travel in Search of Knowledge. The freedom of thought and the ability to speak one’s opinions on a variety of subjects without fear of intimidation was one of the greatest lessons I learned.
The power of thoughts and ideas applied in a disciplined and well-structured environment within the working framework of a peaceful society was well demonstrated throughout every department and ministry that we visited. The values of service instilled into every member of society with educational opportunities were the foremost goal for achievement. The acquiring and maintenance of optimum health care for all members of the society was intensely demonstrated on the local and national levels. Disaster preparedness and highly organized and trained medical practitioners in every field has produced a cohesive and closely knit Brotherhood in social services and development that expands the globe.
Running throughout all of these outstanding achievements listed above is the natural beauty of the island, which is magical in its environmental landscape. Exhibiting the map once again of Cuba, we will note the shape and form of a dolphin or porpoise, with its face dipping to the westernmost side of the island. The dolphin is associated with having a brain with a solar capacity of communicating with the brain waves of humans and is very hospitable and friendly with the human species. We have seen this demonstrated in many feature films and scientific documentaries. One might find it interesting to note that Cuba’s fauna is marked with the lack of poisonous species that would be harmful to human health and about 900 species of mostly edible fish abound, along with more than 8,000 species of flora.
Adding to all the above that makes Paradise Island, recent discoveries of ancient ruins have been reported off Cuba’s western sea coast in an estimated depth between 1,900 to 2,500 feet, first sighted by a Canadian exploration team of the Cuban-based company Advanced Digital Communication (ADC), who is working in conjunction with the Cuban Government and its Exploratory Mission to search the surrounding seas off her coast.
A series of articles on this discovery were first printed by the BBC, the Canadian Press and National Geographic magazine, starting in 2001, 2002 and most recently as of March 2005. Focusing on this extraordinary site reveals evidence through solar digital imaging of what appears to be a huge megalithic expanse of an urban area built with colossal blocks of stones scaled to an underwater city, exhibiting pyramids and temples of an ancient past civilization peering up from its watery grave.
Geologist and geophysicist Dr. Manuel Iturralde, director of research for the Cuban Museum of Natural History, is the consultant for this project, and is amazed at such a striking discovery, near the Gulf of Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula and Veracruz. In consulting with the director of the Anthropology Department at the University of Veracruz, Dr. Robert Ramirez, it appears that this discovery links with the many stories transmitted by the Mayans and others about missing pieces of their lost homeland. It is further believed that this portion of western Cuba is a Gateway to Atlantis, called Atlanticu, in the Indigenous language, and was once connected to the Yucatan, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
On the other side of the geographic chain, there are the Bahama Islands, with Bimini taking the lead in being the Gateway to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, a short distance from Cuba on its northeastern side. Bimini is only a half-hour flying distance from Florida, and only 50 miles from Miami. Putting together all these pieces of unsolved mysteries, we are left in wonderment at the Story of Legendary Atlantis as recorded in the writings of Plato, a student of Socrates, in two Dialogues entitled “Timaeus” and “Critias,” written in the 5th Century B.C., wherein he describes the existence of a Lost Continent and people of Atlantis. According to the Legend or Myth, in one terrible day and night, Atlantis was totally destroyed and sunk beneath the Atlantic Ocean, from which the Atlantic Ocean presently derives its name.
As I entered Cuba and returned, as well as to the Bahamas, I knew that I would learn more and come into direct contact with more information about a subject I have been studying for over 30 years, in my life-long Search for Knowledge proving the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s Divine Teachings in every aspect of The Supreme Wisdom taught to him from his Master Teacher, W. Fard Muhammad.
“Even as We have sent among a Messenger from among you, who recites to you Our messages and purifies you and teaches you the Book and the Wisdom and teaches you that which you did not know. Therefore glorify Me, I will make you eminent, and give thanks to Me and be not ungrateful to Me.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 2, verses 151-152
More, next week, God Willing!
