Blessed to all
greetings chica, first of all RASTAFARI is not a biblical doctrine or any other but a natural livity from d inspiration of H.I.M.
RASTAFARI is an african liberation movement physical,mentally and spiritually
Physically africans and africa continent must be free from d damage been done by babylon,african redemtion ,if africa is free ,world willl be free too, in history ,african world leadership gave spirituality to d world.
Mentally,africa contribution must be known, to give back african pride back,mental slavery was even worst than physical ,it affects d generation deeply, and separates 1 to another,and d result is adaptation of other culture or religion ,and d effects can be very self destructive,because its from d african that these culture and religion came from,so africa must come back to its own position as d source of it, african mentality is wholistic ,to see all as 1 and 1 as all.
Spriritually, is to fucntion or live wholly(holy) the livity itself is d very essence of RASTAFARI. To be 1 with all , before babylon took control ,wholistic livity functions and d basis of all indigineous cultures,and to be identified with life not as an individual,d individual is just a function ,but since all functions as 1 ,d very idea of individual is eliminated ,this is d cruxifiction of ego for d sake of all, meaning eliminate every selfish desire ,cause individualism is d very cause of greed,lust and power.
There is a reason in history why a name is not given to JAH ,and a lower deity is its representative, if u observe in these present moment ,so much division in d name of JAH including rasta, who is d real god? To point out "somebody or someone or something" is god, is a blasphemy ,this means a man/wombman , a created being is now pointing out d creator d all knower, its like saying d eye which is 1 seeing all, is seeing itself, or d very source of ALL is pointed out,as someone is god, this is very insulting to creation ,ancient indigineous culture always worship its representative or a function of JAH,meaning to worship an attribute simply to give potential for d attribute dat d individual lacks.
How can an limited being point out d almighty,d infinity?mind can't grasp it because mind itself is limited.
A personal overstanding of god must remain personal but functions universal, d personal god is to fill up d gaps to be whole ,meaning to live better with d accordance of all,nature,man and self.
Haile selassie I ,Menen I , is I king and queen , I teacher or guru ,dat dispels darkness to light and yes I personal god,
Its better to say H.I.M is 1 with JAH through his works towards d uplifment and peace of us all,is d presence of JAH in man, if d action of man is for d progress of all then his works is godly.
Every 1 thinks different some ppl are stuck on religious dogmas so them need dogmas or theologies to get out of it ,or dem need a scripture to point out JAH, if d I is raised as christian ,d bible can be a help to have more faith but faith itself must be followed by knowledge , faith is d basis of knowledge ,to question faith just like d I is doing is a good thing ,d best thing is to doubt until all doubts vanish through knowledge,and all remains is wisdom.
For this rasta say know JAH dnt believe ,and this knowing is not through mind cause mind can't grasp it, but by being it , by being 1 with creation from d inspiration of H.I.M
Holy scriptures was not meant to be translated literally,its all myths and d very aim is to realize d hidden potentials of man ,mans divinity, to be peacefull in any situation ,to overstand dat d world is perfect and d only problem in d world is our minds,our way we think of it, we fantasize dat 1 day there will be a total peace on earth,with total no evil, in fact these again is an insult for creation , if d creator is perfect,d creation is perfect too ,now in these very present moment and always been perfect, these world is based on helping each other ,feed d hunger,heal d sick, this opportunities to help ,to give shelter to d homeless makes this world zion , d very good deeds of man is a sign of d presence of JAH.
To have an idea of an everlasting peace are for them who dnt want to take responsibility,its for lazy ppl,to say dat a better world will come is an insult of creation of today, them help simply cause them desire heaven and without this concept them will not do it , its better to help eternally than to help simply because u will go to heaven this is pure greed
JAH dnt reward or punish its InI that punishes and reward iself and others,this law is made before creation ,d law is first before creation, this law is love , a simple man dnt need a scripture to overstand life or JAH , or to function better, most of us are so indoctrinated that InI need a scripture to overstand Iself.
Chica dnt worry about d doctrines listen to ur heart and just be honest,make d best of life, rasta is not a choice ,u are it or not but it doesn't really matter,so many rivers that leads to d ocean ,d aim of rasta is to live 1 with creation ,this is d true worship of H.I.M to live 1 with creation,not simply by hailing H.I.M name ,action speaks louder than words, or to believe a dogma or doctrines, most of dem doctrine oriented ppl are fearfull and them only aim is to go to heaven in time of judgement but dem can wait forever,because everyday is judgement day and zion is here and now ,InI must not wait ,but InI is here to progress ,to help,to feed,to love,with an everlasting innerpeace. Just like H.I.M did.
InI JAH RASTAFARI
