Blessed Love Daughter Omega-I!
Well firstly, tribulation is sent to test... so study for it, and be determined to pass... ace it! As thee I has been doing from that time til this. Give thanks for the strength. I am raising my young daughter (she's 4) in a self-overstanding of herSelf as daughter Zion, ever-living Omega... and Majesty. Now and then, I'm like... argh, what if "they" target her closer and make her hate self, and in essence create a backward effect on what I am endeavouring to do. People are always like... 'why don't you let her decide when she's older'... it is only grace that prevents me from screaming; 'well why don't you let your kids decide instead of stuffing your FREE MASONIC, DEVIL WORSHIPPING IN DISGUISE, LIES & ILLUSION bull-isht down their throats and telling them it's truth and normality'. But, naaah... that's what they want me to say, before committing InI... lol.
But no. I have decided that actually what InI am doing is encouraging her to know herself as a free and natural human. I mean, in this dispensation, I am actually responsible for her fleshical well being... Her irits belong to her and the Most High - it is probably a difficult thing for mothers to accept. How can I steer her iritical growth, when I am still working on mine. I feel like I just need to be responsible for a physical surrounding of health & safety that will be conducive to her spiritual growth.
I mean, I actually refrain from passing on dogma (which we all are guilty of developing) in the livity. That part, I will let her decide for herself through her own personal journey... but I do let her know of the tools I have found, through the order of Melchezidek (give thanks Emmanuel the 7) that have encouraged my own bringing forward of Self... and as Mother, I will always encourage the value of anciency and inheritance... that is family. So, for example... she knows about sabbatical order... (she's been to Bobo Hill - already!! Is that bless or what?!)... but if she has a plan to go to Grandma... or wants to play outside... I don't enforce Sabbath as a RULE for her, it has become one of value for I... so, I think she will find value in it at the appointed time. Or at least, I have to trust that! Know what I mean? Tell me what thee I thinks.
Anyway... yeah, I don't think thee I meant americanised rasta... as in... americanised. It's like a contradiction in terms. I felt that thee I more meant... how do you value the breadth of your personal experience and journey within the identification of InI RasTafari? Because you shall not discard all you know, in favour of the dictates of this "lifestyle"! That is also a contradiction in terms.
I think anyone who is living RasTa like a religion to be adhered to is wasting their time... and simply replacing one noose around the neck, for another. I mean... you know the jewISH... they created an idea that they are a race and not a religion... or are a race and a religion. They got that CONfusion from InI (figures, of course). InI are an ancient identity (I don't wanna say race, cos that's just what happens in the olympics... but you get what I mean). So one is either RasTa or is not. Some are RasTa and not living according to the order that is most productive to our spiritual awakening. Some are not RasTa and are pretending to be by trying (and always failing) to live according to a set of rules, like a religion. Those RasTa who are running from themselves simply cannot - and will not. And those who are not RasTa will go down by the wicked man said way. Ye know, this is all pre-ordained and written down in the book of life (Give thanks Ababa Jahnoy).
SO! I wouldn't worry about condemnations and judgements from outside of thee I. It will happen. InI are in this world... yet not of it... so we have to take the good experience with the bad... and in fact, there is no bad, only stuff we don't fulljoy having to go through. I think the big test here for thee I is learning how to live in this world... but keep the temple out of it. The temple is where InI go within to convene with the Most High. It is a place of solice, to go for advice, comfort, to weep over the bumps in the journey, and to give PRAISES, lest we forget THAT!! etc, etc... the flesh (that houses the temple) is simply the vehicle to go through this, like a treasure hunt or something... all of InI have a point (in fact many points) to being here... InI Israel fulfil these every blessed day... but we don't real-eyes it. We can gather more strength by operating more in the temple, using the livity to train ourselves in how to do this... then we will reach more overstanding, and the challenges will become clearer in purpose because we are reaching the elevation of knowing God in Self... Alpha & Omega... this is example Haile Selassie I sets by trodding flesh for all to see... InI LOVE LOVE His Majesty (it rhymed!).
So, my dear Sistar!!! Listen to this... I'm just getting to the point even in my own mind, I hope this helps... I think Majesty sent it for you... THE LUCKY ARE BETTER OFF THAN THE WELL-BRED! Each of us are going to go through all kinds of awful things, such is this life and this time... even the rich & celebrity (who this culture is supposed to serve so well) have plenty of problems... people will always cuss anyone for the things they know will most hurt the person. InI are not exempt from dealing with people in the 'normal' way. BUT... InI have the temple of JAH within... and why is that... because InI are Israel! InI Is-REAL. So, your advantage is not that thee is RasTa in flesh and in order alone... all this things of the flesh manifest in the temple and it is there you go, consult with the Father & Mother... and gain more strength.
P.S. even the heathen have the temple within, but they don't have Melchesidek to show them how to nurture it. Melchesidek is the constant promise to Israel... the constant keeping of the covenant between HIM and us. Hearing Melchesidek call is how you know you are Israel.
Bless UP right back!!
Love in the house Empress Omega.
