Blessed to All

Yes I Give thanks for life, how come that Rastafari is being Christianized but the matter of fact african spirituality has more common with the eastern religions such as buddhism,hinduism ,shamanism etc.... this is because this religions came from africa on an earlier period compared with the judeo religions including christian and islam,
this 3 major religions which came thousands of years after eastern religion took place , then dominated and demonized all non judeo religions including its offsprings namely christianity and islam ,and since them concept of God is a jealous one in other words it doesnt aim for love but by dominance , which is an male aspect and this is why them god is a male and this is why male dominates,just like the story of adam and eve which became the excuse of the dominance of men , hence what is the root of the word "evil", and because them have this dominant attitude them conquer all other religions with conversion or death! obviously is a very primitive or a cave man mentality this is why them say survival of the fittest ,them way od life or better say way of death is based on competion instead of overstanding ,tolerance and harmony.
with this characteristics them demonized all other religion and cultures and from this the word "pagan" is born which never existed before them judeo religion is born , the fact is the "pagans" (kemet,hindu,shamans,indigineous cultures) respects creation meaning whole creation ,every part of creation is an aspect of God ,while the judeo is only 1 yes but all else is separated on it , the easter religion is obviously closer to african spirituality simply InI can see that mainly on Kemetics system which is left by InI ancestor as Guide, to remind InI how man became civilized instead of barbarian , in those times there was never competion of Dominating Gods but because life is about changes, certain times and periods different Aspect of God ruled a certain area and time ,which was needed depending on what situation took place for Instance , on dry season ppl call or worship for an aspect of God which represents water , this is still present until now mostly on tribes men , I man cant recall the names of God aspect or tribes but a research for InI will best to learn from it , this is the wholistic approach which is a passive aspect of life the compassionate way , this is why the most ancient aspect of god was a female , not literally but symbolically just as all spiritual stories are all symbolical.
why are Western religion is on a Literal way of overstanding is because of the dominance of the left brain ,this side analyzes thing ,meaning it break things down to overstand in other words it separate things just like modern science and this is why the alphabets of modern times is just read it literally but compared to the hieroglyphs
or any ancient alphabets ,because 1 hieroglyph has a differnt meaning depending on the relation of the next symbol,but InI need an abstract mind to overstand and which doesnt analyzes but relates , it combines things ,thats why is called wholistic, example Abstract mind sees the whole picture while literate sees only the colors like this is red ,beside is green etc... but not the whole picture , the same why with them concept of god and themselves , because them no relate to the world but dominate it, more examples is an artist is an abstract minded while a scientist is and literate minded , a bushman is abstract while a doctor is a literate, thats why doctors take a piece of something thats how chemical is created while a bushman combines herbs and even relates with season or stars etc....
male is literate while a womban is abstract , man communicate with words while a wombman with emotions etcc........
more difference is western religions prays to an external god while eastern meditates and goes deeper to the inner selves , to explore the subconscious mind and to be more aware , this is why awareness is the goal ,while western religions hopes that an external god to be saved and only keeps on hoping and simply blames the devil for the wickedness and an external god for the blessings but never through themselves.
the origin of spirituality namely african spiritualy aim is to realize InI divinity and not from someone else, the external or the example can only be a reminder but never the divine itself because InI itself are divine but are still blind or not yet aware , this is why a pharaoh was considered a God meaning as an example of a self realized man just as how InI see HIM as God , meaning as an living example and attainable by everyone!!!!

Haile Selassie is I / Empress Menen is I

and the only Blasphemy there is ,is by lowering InI self from reality as a Divine as a Trick by Babylonians

Burn western religion

Dash away the concept of externality and deal with internality

We dash away any Babylonian concept of an external personified god concept as the bible speaks of a 'jealous god' and god as a 'he' - burn that whole concept.

Selassie I show I the divinity within iself - internalisation. Power is within I self, not god in sky or god in heaven or Jesus next to him, dash all a dem ina fire. Only haile Selasssie as revealed within iself I a deal wth.

On the occasion of Your Excellency's visit to Our country it gives Us special pleasure to receive you at this institution itself dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and truth. It is altogether fitting that Your Excellency should be the focus of this occasion, for Your Excellency has yourself since your youth been dedicated to that cause. Your marked achievement to the august rank of Professor at the youthful age of twenty-eight, your consistent endeavour to pursue knowledge and the numerous books that have flowed from your pen, to this bear witness.

Today more than ever before man realizes the bond of unity that exists within the race; he is endeavouring to employ the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of the ages. He is employing modern science and technology; he is reaping the benefits, however limited, of political and economic unity; and to that extent, he is transcending the age-old barriers that have divided the race so long and is endeavouring to reflect on the welfare not only of himself and his immediate neighbour but also on the welfare of all the human race. This endeavour is in harmony with the spirit of the mystics of ages gone by "...in the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of the spirit. Whatever religions they may profess they are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historical forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have always stood for the fellowship of humanity," so Your Excellency has taught us. And in an effort to carry out this teaching to pursue truth - to promote those bonds common to the human race - Your Excellency has dedicated your whole life. To free the human race from superstition and fear that originate from ignorance; to enable him to transcend the apparent obstacles of race and religion; and to help him recognize the blood-ties of the whole human race, Your Excellency has laboured. To this generation, so tormented between modern knowledge and ancient faith, your scrupulous studies have pointed the way by which man may be saved from traditional superstition and modern scepticism.

Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency's persistent endeavour, how much the poorer would human thought have been!

In the history of the human race, those periods which later appeared as great have been the periods when the men and the women belonging to them had transcended the differences that divided them and had recognized in their membership in the human race a common bond. Your Excellency's constant endeavour to challenge this generation to transcend its differences. to recognize its common bond and to work towards a common goal has doubtless made this age pregnant with greatness. It is, therefore, in recognition of these labours that We, with unequalled pleasure, bestow upon Your Excellency the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa.
