Is Esau The Black Man, or Jacob?

Jahspiritul guidanceBefore I began Embracing Rastafari I had heard stories about birthright and Esau and Jacob, but I never paid so much attention to it. This is a very important story in the bible. I was just watching a video on Youtube…that said that Esau is the Caucasians and that Black people are Jacob. I dont think so. I think the earth began as black, but later other nations came about from…well Im not sure.

 What did Jah Say about 2 Nations Divided

19And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham begat Isaac: 20And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian. 21And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD.

23And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

24And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. 26And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.

27And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. 28And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.

Esau Sells his Birthright

29And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: 30And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. 31And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. 32And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. 34Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Jacob 27:30

Esau and Jacob30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. 31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s venison, that thy soul may bless me. 32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. 33 And Isaac trembled [4] very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed. 34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father. 35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing. 36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob [5] for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me? 37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained [6] him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son? 38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept. 39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness [7] of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above; 40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

Here is the Video I was watching…

how rastafarians lock their hair

dreadlocks cleanWelcome. I thought I would share with you how Rastafari their dreadlocks Rasta hair.

As a Rasta the correct way to do it is minus a comb and minus scissors. So there should be no cutting or parting out of hair by the scalp using a comb. Dreadlocks are technically supposed to be “formed by Jah!” It is the one part of our physical self that we “dedicate” to him to do what he wishes. This is why it becomes matted, which form dreadlocks.

Before I talk about how I created my own dreadlocks. I want to share with a page that shows how a girl in a video is getting her hair done in dreadlocks very professionally and very neatly. She has straight hair so it’s a little different from mine, but her locks look nice. Check it out Dreadlocks Video.

Starting my dreadlocks

When I started my dreadlocks…I knew for years I was going to do it. But I was scared. Scared that men would not be attracted to me…Scared that I would look ugly in my own “natural Hair” scared that my locks would be too “Rastafari” for my job….I was scared of so many things. At the time I started my locks I had braids in my hair. In all my fear…I pull out one braid at the back underneath all my “synthetic braids.” And “allowed” that one bit of hair to lock. I promised my self I would check on it in 2 weeks time. Well two weeks later I did check on it. It looked ok, but it didn’t look great. I figured “well, this is what I want….” So I decided to do my whole head. The day I started my dreadlocks I dedicated my life to Jah. I pulled out all the braids on my head. I did not use a comb in it…I did not cut any ends…I even had some hair glue in my hair from wearing weave…I left it. I wanted the shift to just start immediately and I wanted it to be Authentic.


My Locks and Becoming a Rasta

I shifted my priorities and I knew I would have to wear a head wrap. My locks were short, and ” natural” and to me…”unattractive.” Well, I wore a hair wrap and felt “free” but “ugly.” I began Transition wearing wigs. The day came when the wig could not fit over my dreadlocks any more. I had no choice but to let some air get to my hair.  I stood out like a sore thumb everywhere I went. But somehow I felt free… I washed my own hair in the shower, which I enjoyed doing, I felt beautiful from head to toe in “my own” hair! I felt like I had stepped into me.

That was 5 years ago. Today my dreadlocks are long, they look beautiful. I am wearing my own natural hair, some men find me irresistible…some are shocked, to see a black woman with long natural hair. Two things I didn’t expect having dreadlocks…How Free I feel, and how many men who are not black Approach me in conversation. I feel great knowing that like most women outside…I am wearing my own hair, and it is long, and beautiful.

Products I used to Lock my hair!

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleI used a lot of lime juice to force my hair to lock. I had to do that because My ends were full of Lye from perm I had used for almost 20 years. My hair could not lock using my natural coils. The lime Juice worked pretty good for my hair. I avoided washing my hair for 5 weeks to allow the locks to form. I did feel icky. When I finally washed my hair some of my Locks unraveled, But I just twisted them again and reapplied the lime juice. In Jamaica many Rasta use a mixture of real lime juice and aloe. I talk about this in my new book “Rasta Way of Life” Rastafari Livity Book. The Lime helps the hair to lock fast under the son. The Aloe kind of acts as a sticky sealer to seal in the loose hairs. I hope this was helpful.

Blessed.

How to Increase Self Esteem as Black Human (page 5)

 

 


black jesus3Black Christ

Obtain an image of a “black Christ” and place in a very personal room in your home, such as your bed room or meditation room. Black hue-mans having images of a Christ that does not look like them, only erodes self esteem, and contributes to self hatred. Hang your picture of a Black Christ and see how your life starts to change.

 

Natural black hair

Anybody who wants to follow Rastafari as a way of life, must wear their hair in natural beautiful dreadlocks. Doing this will help to build your self esteem tenfold. I know because I have my hair in locks, and I am more beautiful and free, now then when I was wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. If you are not ready to lock, be sure to embrace your natural coily hair as an afro.

 

Support Black business

Supporting black business is extremely important for Self Esteem and the Rastafari community. This builds black business, and creates self esteem by shopping in a shop that has your image and interest, health in mind. Too many black hue-mans are shopping in stores, that know nothing of our culture, and physical or spiritual needs. Support black business and also black Authors, and as a black hue-man, you may feel more “spiritually attuned.”

 

Positive Black Vocabulary

black coupleIts time we as black hue-mans start to use “positive vocabulary” when making references to our to coily African black hair and black skin complexion.

 

In Reference to our hair we may say…

  • Jah hair
  • Coily hair
  • Royal Crown
  • Wooly Jesus hair

In reference to our beautiful skin tone we may say:

  • High Melanin Complexion
  • Jah skin
  • Honorable Completion
  • Royal Complexion
  • Beautiful African Skin
  • Burnt Brass Color

Using these “terms” will go a long way to creating self love, and inner self esteem as a black hue-man. I was sent here to tell you these things. What you are reading may actually be seen as an entire book on how to have black self esteem.

King Selassie I Speech Spirituality (page 2 )

(from the book – Rastafari Spirituality for African Americans)


In Jah name
Rastafari Unite.

For all my Little Lambs, who seek truth.

Introduction

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.”

Recap…

  1. “Africans are in bondage because they approach spirituality through Religion…”
  2. “We must stop confusing Religion and Spirituality…Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans…”
  3. “Due to human imperfection Religion has become corrupt…”
  4. “Spirituality is a “way of life” …of which embodies our culture, true identity, nationhood and destiny…”
  5. “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.”

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
