becoming a Rasta
Many white persons are becoming Rastafarians. This is a very positive move for society as a whole. Rastafari is a spirituality of love, togetherness, and God, (Jah Love) and truth. However for those seeking guidance on becoming a Rasta, there may be more to this way of life than you are aware of. To touch the tip of the iceberg, Rastafari is just as much about what you don’t do as much as what you do, to call your self “Rasta”
Rastaman follow a strict code of clean and unclean
Many people don’t know this but Rastaman follow a strict code of “clean and unclean” – if he / she is serious about his faith and his beliefs. Many Jamaican Rastas do not
- smoke cigarettes
- drink alcohol
- eat read meat
- take pharmaceuticals
In Rastafari we try to keep things as pure and as clean as the day Jah created light out of darkness. This way we keep Jah as the center of all that we do.
Can a White Person be a Rasta?
So, can a white person be Rasta? For a few years I felt the clear answer to this question was “of course not!” However I have come to find out… Absolutely! A white person can be a Rasta in the same way that a black man or woman can be Rasta. Rastafari is of the heart, whats in heart, has very little to do with skin color. Rastafari is a powerful spiritual energy, he can do things that humans can’t. Including penetrate the heart of those blue, pink purple and white. I decided this after watching the video of “Mr. Alborosie” (A white ( Italian) Rasta Reggae music Singer) called “Jah Jah Crown.” His words are the exact way I would describe my very deep and personal relationship with Jah. After listening to a few of Alborosies songs, and watching some of his videos on youtube….I am convinced!….A white person, can be Rastafari!

Not all Rasta are born Rasta. Some Rasta are Rasta because they are born to Rastafari parents, some are Rasta because they choose this way of living as their person spirituality. Many are Rasta because they have somebody close to them following the livity, and it somehow seems like the right thing for them to do the same thing.

- and much much more…
In my book I have included a Rastafari pledge: To be a conscious and Righteous Rasta. Why? Because too many people “become Rasta” as a form of rebellion or because their friend, boyfriend or girlfriend is Rasta, without really understanding what it means to be a rasta. To help people understand what it means I created a very simple but informative pledge, which can be read at any time and keep new Rastas on the right track. I love you all….
for now keep reading those bible verses, stay conscious and righteous and absorb as much “Rasta Reggae Music” as possible. The book is available as an ebook, Jah Bless.
Jah Rastafari, Much Love.
