Introduction

 

Every Rastaman was given life to walk the face of the earth as a “messenger of Jah.” He knows that in the physical he has been ordained to live as a humble spiritual King.  For this reason all Rasta man know, there are many things in this life he must refrain from partaking in.

Rasta Kings are Chosen at Conception

A Rasta man is “chosen at conception” to keep his mind, spirit and body clean to ensure, upon his transition, he may be deemed, clean, holy and  acceptable to enter Mount Zion.

This book was created for men who know that they too are Kings, and know that a true King has a special and unique, way of thinking, living and being. May Jah bless you on the journey, as you live the way of life as a Rastafari King.

Blessed Love. King Selassie I.

Rasta King Way of Life:

5 Things Rasta men teach their Rasta Children

  1. Rastafarian man teach his children to love &  Fear Jah – Rasta King’s children learn very young, that there is a consequence for every action. That there is one who sees and knows all things good and bad. His name is Jah, the almighty creator.
  2. Rastafarian man Teach his  children“Rasta Love” – Rasta children are taught that other nations are their brothers and sisters under Jah. With them we must share, be respectful, and live harmoniously, even if culture or skin color is different. This is how we as Rastafari share “Rasta Love.”
  1. Rastafarian man Teach his children to Study black leaders – As soon as Rasta children are old enough to read on their own, they are taught to study the lives of black leaders. Such studies teach Rasta children about, equality, helps to build strength, perseverance, character, and wisdom, as their personalities are molding. Rasta children will learn to see themselves as “here to make a difference”  rather than here to be “self indulgent, in Babylon”.
  2. Rastafarian man Teach His children to be Proud of their Roots & Culture – Rasta Children learn that their heritage is a gift. One of which they should be proud and that Black slavery was an “interruption” in African history, not African history itself. All Rasta children regardless of their ethnicity learn about African Roots Culture and History.
  3. Rastafarian man Teach his children to be Patient kind and humble  – Patience comes from fearing jah, and reading his words. Rasta King teach his children to be humble, not arrogant before Jah, and to take an interest in the holy bible.
  4. Rasta King teach their Children to be Respectful – Rasta Children are taught to be Respectful to the elderly and the weak/meek. Rasta King teach his children that, in this way Rasta children are blessed in this life, and save up rewards with the Most High Jah, by these actions.
  5. Rastafarian man Teach his children to Say “no” to Babylon… – Babylon offers everything. To be a true King or Rasta Queen one must be speculative. Rasta King teach his Children that, not everything is for Royalty, but that all is for the heathen. Lust, lies, whoredom, self hate, wickedness etc. Rasta children must pause, and think, before saying “yes” to all things.
  6. Rastafarian man Teach his children to Read the King James Version Bible daily: Rasta King knows that one can acquire, wisdom, and knowledge, from reading the King James version bible. A Rasta King encourages his Rasta child to start reading the King James Version bible between age  10-13 on his/her own. Before, then he himself will read the bible to his child explaining the verses and text in a simplistic manner as he reads. Rasta King knows he is raising an Empress or King, and that requires time effort and love.

Haile Selassie: New way of life speech in full

King Selassie I - Rastafari

way of life. We search for a way of life in which all men will be treated as responsible human beings, able to participate fully in the political affairs of their government; a way of life in which ignorance and poverty, if not abolished, are at least the exception and are actively combatted; a way of life in which the blessings and benefits of the modern world can be enjoyed by all without the total sacrifice of all that was good and beneficial in the old Ethiopia. We are from and of the people, and our desires derive from and are theirs.

Can this be achieved from one dusk to the next dawn, by the waving of a magic wand, by slogans or by Imperial declaration? Can this be imposed on our people, or be achieved solely by legislation? We believe not. All that we can do is provide a means for the development of procedures which, if all goes well, will enable an increasing measure and degree of what we seek for our nation to be accomplished. Those who will honestly and objectively view the past history of this nation cannot but be impressed by what has already been realised during their lifetime, as well as be awed by the magnitude of the problems which still remain.

Annually, on this day, we renew our vow to labour, without thought of self, for so long as Almighty God shall spare us, in the service of our people and our nation, in seeking the solutions to these problems. We call upon each of you and upon each Ethiopian to do likewise……

Above all, Ethiopia is dedicated to the principle of the equality of all men, irrespective of differences of race, colour or creed.
As we do not practice or permit discrimination within our nation, so we oppose it wherever it is found.
As we guarantee to each the right to worship as he chooses, so we denounce the policy which sets man against man on issues of religion.

As we extend the hand of universal brotherhood to all, without regard to race or colour, so we condemn any social or political order which distinguishes among God’s children on this most specious of grounds.

5 Rastafari views and Principles on Money

Rastafarian Beliefs about Money

Rasta belief Money is a tool!

Money is a tool. As Rasta we know not to fall in love, or to fall into lust with the journey. Money is simply a means to an end. Use it to accomplish another goal. Perhaps to purchase a house, to feed a family, or to buy a new Bob Marley or Dennis Brown cd to meditate to.

Money is to serve and help others

I cannot count the amount of blessings Jah has brought into my life, simply because I exercise this Rasta principle. I use money to serve others by giving money away to homeless people living on the street. I use to do it twice a month, but now I try to do this once a week. Rasta knows to use his money to help and serve those who are in need.

Rasta believe Money is not to be hoarded

Another key to prosperity that many people do not realize, but that is part of the Rastafari livity, is that money is not to be hoarded. Under Rastafari to be wealthy and to save it in a back account is a sin. In other words, according to the desires of Jah, money is to be given away. Take advantage of as many opportunities as possible to give money away. Rasta knows that to savemoney in the back is a form of hoarding, and selfishness and fearfulness. What type people and experiences do you think you will create if you carry such thoughts and beliefs in your aura. As Rasta we spend money freely and give away money freely (without expecting it back) because we know Jah provides, and Jah always provides us with more.

Rasta know Money is neither good nor evil

Rasta knows it’s not the money jah rasta prayersthat is actually evil…its the way the person uses it. Rasta doesn’t believe money is the root of all evil. We believe money is good because it can help us create more opportunities to serve Jah. Money is neither good, nor evil…its how we use it that makes it so.

Rasta know Money is not life

Rasta know money is not life. Many people live as if they will live forever. They think that money is everything in this life. Money is not life. It has been said that Bob Marley said on his death-bed “money can’t buy life.” Exactly. So, I try according to Rasta Beliefs, to keep in mind that money is money, and that life is life. I try to take in and recognize those beautiful moment in my life and cherish them as they happen. Like the time I took my 4-year-old step son to KFC and he tried to eat the who chicken breast in two bites as his face was full of ketchup. I enjoyed that moment. I watched him in what felt like, slow motion, and that is a moment I will never forget. No amount of money could equate to  the experience for me.

Rastafari is my first love…but…

Rastafari is my first love but…

king selasse with empress menenThe Rasta community has turned me off. I know shouldnt write for them, but its hard when you belong to a community where there are so many wolves in sheep’s clothing. They look Rasta, but in their heart they are Babylon. They know I am not like them so they try to wear me down with abuses of how I need to try to be more like them. I have a place in Zion, and that I cannot give up.

When I am around people who have no regard for Jah, it makes me cringe the way they speak. About their sexual escapades, their probation officers, their sugar Daddies, their lustful “relationships” their desire to hurt another human being. These things hurt my Rasta heart and make me just want to get away from these people.



Rastafari is my first love….But I am thinking of pursuing something else. In fact I have already started. This doesn’t meant I wont blog Rastafari anymore…it just means…perhaps a little less?

I have another love I want to share with the world

I have always been a person who is spiritual and believes in forces unseen. Jah is my first source for all that I do, and then I also believe in harnessing the power within. So, my other blog is mostly about that.

No matter what I do I keep …

No matter what I do I keep getting pulled to Rastafari. I know I could do a lot more with this blog…but I have my reasons for not expanding on it.

Jamaica is my heart…

jamaican flag, the jamaican flag buyJamaica is my heart and soul. Foreign Babylon is wearing me down. I always think about home, every day and how much I wish I was there. I remember the smiles of my people, the way the air makes me feel, the white sandy beaches, the slow pace, the way party life picks up in Jamaica in the night-time. I will go home.

I think I am just feeling discouraged by those who….

…want to make Rastafari something it is not. I have to say something I have been wanting to mention in my books for a long time. But, I didn’t for fear of reaction from…I dont know whom. I am a messenger of Jah. But, I am not a messenger of Jah for everyone. Some people are gonna really get and understand my message. My books and blog posts will resonate with them. Then for some they may find my work “uninspiring.” That really because, my work was not meant for them. But, how do you tell someone you are writing for a certain set of people, because that is what The Most High Appointed you for? Let me just say, those people know who they are because my message feels right for them. The sad part about it is…my books are being read more by those it wasnt meant for, than those it was.

Rasta to Rasta is no debate



I heard the FAther from the show called Duck Dynasty say something….” I knew I had to get committed to the duck hunting Rasta Couplebusiness full-time, or put down the duck hunting business full-time.” I feel like that about Rastafari sometimes. I feel like I have to commit my self to something. I feel like this website could be so much more if I were willing to give it the effort. There is just so much judgement from people who really don’t know what they are talking about that is why they have the judgement. When I am around Rastafari people like me…Rastafari is the least thing we are interested in dissucssing…becasue we argree…therefor… there is know debate no trying to prove…everythign just flows. Those Rasta are few and far between. I WOULD LIKE TO take this moment to thank those who are Rasta and do support me to the fullest. Thank you Rastafari. I appreciate your support.
