Speaking ONLY for I&i as one man who has been a Rasta from birth, and actively seeking & following H.I.M.for nearly a half century; RastafarI is a spiritual movement. The miraculous power of the Most High is evident everywhere i go in the HOPE & LOVE i witness even in the most poverty- and oppression-stricken people in the world. RastafarI is much more than the Holy Name RastafarI; it is JAH LOVE.
I&i would find no glorification in the commercialization, institutionalization, and/or propagandizing of His Majesty's message. The Pure need not be soiled so; our pearls needn't be cast before swine in order to beg their acceptance or popularize participation.
Again, this is just my personal feeling.
His Majesty has been everything to me, done everything for me, and never let me down. He continues to provide us with EVERYTHING, and to be readily available and accessible to anyone who hath an ear to hear His message. i see no deficiency in His Power or Presence whatsoever.
I&i can relate to the desire to have fellowship and camaraderie with other Rastas; however, that need is easily fulfilled by sharing observations & experiences about our spiritual journeys seeking JAH with members of many different faiths. Sincerely spiritual people of all faiths are, in fact, seeking JAH and this becomes evident when we have spiritual discussions with them.
