Blaze fyah GA! Yes I. Thanks and Ises Ras.
In all love I Tom, the I is stating two opposite ideas in saying that "The Lord made I and I."
In using these words, I&I, a person is giving testament to the interconnectedness of All That Is. I&I are more than the collective people of this planet, I&I are everything. I am the sky and the planets in the deepest space. I am the bug crawling on the soil, and I am the soil. All people and all objects are made of the same matter, and the matter is, and in simply being, it is divine. If "the Lord" was the only thing in existence, and then made the universe, then what did the universe take shape from, if not the only thing in existence, "the Lord" itself? To say "I&I" is to realEyes that I am made up of the same essence as everything, and that the essence itself is the divinity. I am the creator and the creation.
Humans are not divine simply because of how they were created, and humans are not more divine than anything else. "The Lord" did not make man in "his image". If I&I read the Hebrew text, it seems that Hebrews took the story from another group of people, and claimed it as their own (like all of the Bible stories). Iwombman see the most relation between the even more ancient Sumerian stories and the Hebrew tale; Annunaki and Elohim are both words for "they who came from the sky/heavens." Furthermore, the more ancient Sumerian tale is more descriptive than the Hebrew tale, therefore, it seems clear that it was the inspiration for the simplified story that ended up in the Torah/Bible.
Our mothers and fathers have made us in their images, and through the magical divine nature of all living and nonliving energy forces, our human bodies were built from the nutrients that our mothers ate during gestation. I&I are the nutrients, and I&I are our parents. And I&I are eternal beings, eternally taking new shapes and forms throughout the span of existence, because the whole universe is self-recycling. This is obvious from the way one creature's flesh will turn to soil for a plant to grow.
I&I are divine because I&I exist. And in knowing that I am everything, I must act according to principles which benefit the entire whole I. This is Godly, or righteous, action.
Itiopian people were devastated from the poison gas bombings by Italian invasions, and this is the cause for the famine at that time. And in being the King of Kings, in leading the people from this place of power, in working ceaselessly for the Independent FreeItes and Iducation of Itiopia, and in establishing law and justice for Itiopian people in the face of the Beast who would have usurped all Itiopian rights, with even more devastating effects than the poison gas, were it not for HIM - His Imperial Majesty Qedamawi Haile Selassie acts righteously and Godly by benefitting his people, and the entire whole of humanity and existence, thereby realizing Ones essential Oneness with The Power that Is, which is I&I JAH.
Haile Selassie I IS JAH.
And furthermore, Iman claim that "Jesus would never do such a thing," however, I find no proof that Jesus was a real person. While there is anecdotal evidence that the man may have trod this Irth, there is no actual hard evidence. This means that even if Jesus was a real person, he may have lived much differently from how I&I read the stories. Additionally, all people have roles and responsibilities to fill within their lifetime. His Imperial Majesty has the role of King, which was established in the most ancient nation and obviously thereby had accumulated large amounts of material wealth. If Jesus was real, and really lived exactly the way the Bible says, then that means that Jesus simply had a different role - that of a wandering preacher. Would His Majesty have had a greater impact on the world if he had left his role of King, ceased to lead and fight for his people, and started to wander the countryside, preaching? No, in fact, all of Itiopia and His Majesty himself would have been conquered by Italians, and Fascism would have still been in effect there today. So how can a person say that Jesus is better or more Godly than Haile Selassie I, just because HIM had palaces? Haile Selassie I is the King of Kings and the Prevailing Lion, how could HIM be anything less?
I hope these ideas bring new light into Iman ponderings, allowing Iman to see the full glory of creation and the truth of His Imperial Majesty's Godship up on this Irth, as well as the Godship attainable within I&I own essential existence.
Guidance Most I JAH. More and more love.
