For all my Little Lambs, who seek truth.
King Selassie’s Speech – “Spirituality”
“The temple of “The Most high” begins with the human body, which houses our life, essence of our existence. Africans are in bondage today because they approach spirituality through Religion provided by foreign invaders and conquerors. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans which were supposed to help people grow spiritually.”
“Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, and divisive and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original as was given by “The Most high”. Spirituality is a network linking us to “The Most high”, the universe and each other. As the essence of our existence it embodies our culture, true identity, nationhood and destiny. A people without a nation they can really call their own is a people without a soul. Africa is our nation and is in spiritual and physical bondage because her leaders are turning to outside forces for solutions to African problems when everything Africa needs is within her. When African righteous people come together, the world will come together. This is our divine destiny.”
- “Africans are in bondage because they approach spirituality through Religion…”
- “We must stop confusing Religion and Spirituality…Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans…”
- “Due to human imperfection Religion has become corrupt…”
- “Spirituality is a “way of life” …of which embodies our culture, true identity, nationhood and destiny…”
- “Everything Africa needs is within her…” (all the needs of black people can be met within the black community)
Who I am
I am a messenger of “The Most high.” It matters not that you believe that I am his messenger, it only matters that I deliver the message.
You will read some things here, that may surprise you, or offend you, or inspire you. Remember I am The Messenger.
Every Born Rasta has been given the same message. Some “tweak” it to fit into, or to follow, Babylon, or to satisfy their (sexual) “perversions.” I am filled with truth.
I am like a courier who has been given the task of delivering a message from point A to point B. Jah is point A, Black people is point B.
I do not question the message; I have been programmed not to. Therefore pleases do not question me; I have few answers for you. I have learned it best not to Question “The Most high.”
Peace and blessings to all
Why Choose Rastafari?
Rastafari can trace its holy prophet right into the 19th century. Emperor Haile Selassie is the 225th descendent to sit up on the throne of king David as promised by God in the holy Christian bible. The holy Scripture Reads…
2 Samuel 7
8 “Now then, tell my servant David… When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son… ”
Emperor Haile Selassie sat up on the throne of King David from 1930 to 1974
