Inner Being African Proverbs

 Who sits in a well to observe the sky does not see very much - Inner Being African Proverb The energetic force of the inner self uses hurts, pains and betrayals to the inner child as food to grow and form a healthy adult character. Inner self is the true internal identity tuned into the emotional and spiritual essential nature of one's self able to forge a whole healthy being from damaged parts.  Inner Being African Proverbs. Who knows the truth is not equal to those who live it. Though the left hand conquers the right no advantage is gained. When fingers start scratching the thumb follows along. When a large vessel has opened a way it is easy for a small one to follow. What the ear hears is not like what the eye sees. The light of all the stars is not equal to that of the moon.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.

African cultures express, encourage, and communicate energy
