Bless Up Alabaster ointmnt,
I donít think it is for one to tell one which is the proper way to trod. As the I has stated, there are a number of different orders in the trod of Rastafari. I personally donít fit into one order and get inspiration and strength from all ones that trod Rastafari Livity. If one is more drawn to one order than another I would say be blessed and learn and live the Iís chosen livity to the fullest. I also think it is ok to live in one Rastafari family regardless of the orders.
I have been confused for a Muslim brother before as well, usually when busy-bodies are trying to figure out what faith I dietary restrictions represent haha. Usually a little Red Gold and Green flag of Ithiopia will help InI be recognized :) Of course there are drawbacks to that sometimes too, if babylon happens to grudge I for I visual representation of I happiness in the trod. By the grace of JAH I have remained protected from any serious repercussions.
I think the best way to incorporate HIM Haile Selassie I and Empress Menen I into InI daily lives is to stay alive, happy and healthy, and be a righteous ambassador for the Rastafari Livity. Nuff ones in the world are confused or curious or unaware of who HIM Haile Selassie I is and what HIM stands for. I canít count how many times I have been asked about Rastafari when I wear Red Green and Gold and people think its ďjust a weed thingĒ. As InI know, InI livity represents so much more than that! Being a good ambassador for Rastafari and Ithiopia and the knowledge thereof is a very important duty for InI, and a rare quality in these times.
Blessed Love Iahs
Empress Menen I & HIM Haile Selassie I guide and protect
