Being absence from a relative funeral because of a book sounds limited and religious to I.
Because what matters most is love,and dats the Irit of Selassie I in I.Love,which means you have to pay farewell to the loved ones.
Imagine the havock it will cause when the I doesnt attend the I mother,father,sister,brother funeral.
It wont reveal the true nature of love.
Love is the ultimate,burn religious beliefs and myths,spirituality Iman deal with.
I am not saying InI will not go to a funeral because of a book. InI will not be under the same roof as a dead body because of a VOW InI made unto Jah. I's family had a funeral in the family 2 days ago. Since InI have trod I's path for the past 2 years, some of my family have started to get an Overstanding. Since I have started the trod there has been 3 deaths in the family. Everyone (most) has overstanding of why InI dont go to dem.
The I is correct in what really matters is love. Love is all we need. Although I feel by the I's logic of "Bun dem books, Bun dem beliefs and myths", would the I agree then that we should "bun the words of Selassie I"? Should we "bun the Ible of which HIM put together?" Should we "bun the Kebra Nagast?" Is that what the I means? None of it means anything? InI hope not.
I-man am not one to "mourn" the death of one. InI do not Overstand why one would want to be at a funeral crying over the body of someone. Especially when they profess that when one dies, their Irit leaves and goes to Zion. InI prefer to celebrate life and love of the ones we are closest too. InI feel that you should spend as much time with those that them close too. InI feel that you should celebrate the times spent together. If one truly knows that the I is going to Zion after death, what is the point of crying, when the I should be rejoicing. The body lying in a casket is not the same "person" that you have spent however much time with. It is not possible, the Irit has left and flew away to Zion. The Irit really determines who the I is. Seen?
Does that make sense to the I? This is a very interesting concept you have brought up. One that InI and I wombman have Iditated over for awhile. Still Iditate to this day. I look forward to the I's reply. I-Man thank the I for the post with a difference in Ipinion.
