An Initiation Into Higher Spiritual Consciousness

“And We indeed delivered the Children of Israel from the abasing chastisement, From Pharaoh. Surely he was haughty, prodigal.  And certainly We chose them above the nations, having knowledge.  And We gave them signs wherein was clear blessing.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 44, verses 30-33

[Inspirational Poem by Mother Tynnetta Muhammad]

The Waters of Atlantis by the Bimini Sea
The Waters of Atlantis by the Bimini Sea,
Reveal many exotic and wonderous mysteries,
Her present, past and future co-mingle with the sands,

Stored in crystal vaults by heavenly hands;
Guarded by exalted angels in wait,
Dispersing ancient wisdom from archival gates.
Traveling with the Wise Man on his sacred path,
Rewards the seeker with an open heart;
Awakening new memories each passing day,
With every contemplative moment comes a new brilliant ray.

Rasul Muhammad, in the Bimini library presenting the book Message to the Black Man in America, by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It has been deposited there for all the islanders to read, May 16, 2012.
Oh, little island of Bimini on Paradise Bay,
Drawing scientists, teachers, and explorers,
Artists, craftsmen and visionaries of a New Age.
Bequeath thy Sacred Covenant in electromagnetic waves,

As we enter new kingdoms on land and sea,
The whole world is Atlantis on the isles of Bimini.
Gateway to the Atlantic and the Pacific Isles,
Bestowing her magical blessings on the rise,
On the waters of Atlantis by the Bimini Sea.

With our return journey to Atlantis to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas, this year’s Mxodus Retreat and Tour maximized our expression that our Mxodus Coffee benefits are much more than coffee.  Our retreat immersed us into a stream of consciousness that united us to land and sea where we stood in awe of the magical embrace of Almighty God Allah demystifying His Divine Creation opening our inner selves to unlocking Truth as never before.  I wish to thank all Mxodus Team members for their extraordinary participation and planning in making our journey most successful.  A special thanks to Sister Chaava Muhammad from Atlanta, Georgia, who coordinated all the logistics of travel and lodging, along with Dr. Darnita Muhammad from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, who organized our daily programs and business meetings with great excellence.

We were particularly blessed to have our initiation for every day’s program in the phenomenal Dolphin House built and designed under the artistic and spiritual direction of Professor Ashley B. Saunders, who also participated in many of our events. Special thanks to Sister Chinyerim Muhammad, Student Directoress of Muhammad University of Islam in Detroit, Michigan, who organized an exceptional small group of students and teachers numbering 12 to take part in this historical journey.  We formed a group of 24 when adding 12 members of the Mxodus Team.

We lived the Supreme Wisdom Lessons in a world of Reality.  We were also blessed to have in our company the prestigious professor and researcher of Black history, Dr. Toni-Mokjaetji Humber, Professor of Ethnic and Women’s Studies Department, California State Polytechnic University in Pomona. She also served as our educational tour guide on several impacting journeys to Mexico over the past several years highlighting the presence of our African roots in that country from time immemorial.  

While in Bimini, we initiated a new school of thought focusing on the development of a Sea Lab and Marine Biology and other associated subjects for our students who are interested in studying oceanography, mineralogy and geology with the support of educator, scholar, and author, Dr. Ashley B. Saunders.  Other governmental departments from the island welcomed us with great enthusiasm which included the police department.  One young officer introduced himself to our group who had recently been assigned to Bimini after leaving duty in Flint, Michigan.  He was overwhelmed when he learned that we were representatives of the Nation of Islam and the Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.  He expounded on his reading of the works of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and could not believe that he was in the midst of, in his words, “such celebrities.” 

We presented him with a copy of the book, “How To Eat To Live,” and he requested that all of us (all 24) sign his book.  He offered his services to help us on the island in whatever way possible, including acquisition of land for farming and residence on Bimini and the extended islands.  On the island of Andros, which is the largest of the Bahamian islands, we have made endearing friendships with our hosts living there.  We were introduced to large farming projects, (including Hoop House Construction and Urban Agriculture) and an economic exchange program of some of the commodities they produce and manufacture from natural materials on the island. 

We also visited with one of the members of the Minorite Society who market their products from the land, including the production of raw milk, butter and cheese products, on the island.  They also produce from their agricultural land vegetables, fruits and honey.  More of our experiences will be forthcoming from the students and teachers, Mxodus Team members and invited guests, who participated in this amazing, historical journey that is 16 years in the making, starting from my initial visit in 1997. 

I also wish to thank our photographers and video team which include, Brother Jon Muhammad, from Detroit, Michigan, Brother Fred Muhammad from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Brother Jamal Muhammad from California’s Inland Empire, as well as many of the sisters who also contributed their gifts and talents making our journey an incredible adventure.  While on the island of Bimini, we also paid homage to the great cultural icon and famous mother,  Amelia Marshall, a great pioneer woman who lived in the Black Seminole Village at Red Bay, Andros, and who passed away at the age of 94, this year on February 25th.

I wish to extend my most humble thanks and appreciation to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for encouraging us to reach out to our brothers and sisters, living in world communities near and far, following in the footsteps of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his Master Teacher, W. Fard Muhammad, whose example is descriptive of the spiritual leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, as the Guide delivering to us the guidance in preparation for a New World of heaven on earth.  We look forward to your visit to this lovely island in the waters of Atlantis by the Bimini Sea.

“And We did not create the heavens and the earth and that which is between them in sport. We created them not but with truth, but most of them know not.  Surely the day of Decision is the term for them all, The day when friend will avail friend in naught, nor will they be helped—Save those on whom Allah has mercy.  Surely He is the Mighty, the Merciful.”Holy Qur’an, Surah 44, verses 38-42
