First, for those that are new here and don't know the colour of I skin, it is white and sometimes tanned.
Lack of Humbleness and lack of Respect, that is why a white person is not permitted to play the harps at a Nyahbinghi gathering.
If a man or woman trods with respect for others, they will not assume that they can walk in on the people's gathering and sit on any seat and do anything. They should walk in with humbleness and learn and follow the customs of the gathering.
Also, if a person walks in humbleness, they will not see theirself as higher than they are, but instead will be humble and Learn and Rise in due Time. When a person is humble, they will hear the Spirit more clearly, they will know how long they should just dance and chant in Nyahbinghi, and they will know when it is Time to play the harps. It could be years of just dancing and chanting before a person should touch the harps. And more than likely, when the Time is right and the person's Spirit is on that level, they will be invited to play the harps, because other Ones who know their Spirit will sight that Spirit within the person.
With Humbleness and Respect to the Seriousness of RasTafarI, a person will see that RasTafarI Trod isn't some simple thing that can be turned on by the flick of a switch. It is a trod where a person must be Patient and take the Time to Grow and Rise and be humble enough to see how much more they need to trod.
RasTafarI is a High and Mystical Livity, it is not an ideology or binded book. It is the original Livity and way of the Keepers of the Earth, who Trod in Inity with RasTafarI and Creation to help things flow naturally. It takes Time to Learn this original Livity, because most of the people in this Earth have not Lived this Way for many centuries upon centuries, generations after generations. And if a person learns enough to play the harps, they have learned only a small portion of the fullness of RasTafarI; and in general for all people on this Earth, there is so much more to Learn and Rise.
With Humbleness and Respect, a white person will be permitted to play the harps at a Nyahbinghi gathering, in due Time and season.
A person can't approach the Harp when they are standing outside the Fire. They must enter the Fire during Nyahbinghi gatherings and burn and blaze over time until they have been cleaned enough to enter the center of the Fire. And then from within the Fire they will be able to play the harp, and continue to burn and blaze the rest of the parts of themselves that offend, so they can enter Zion Clean and Pure.
