7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari?

#1 Their Parents are Rastafari

Why people become rasta

Rastafari facts and Rasta Information

Many people become Rasta because one or, both of their parents, are Rasta. I guess its kind of like growing up in a Christian household per say, where you learn about walking in the ways of Christ etc. Only many children of Rastafari parents, learn about “The Rasta Livity” and King Selassie I. as Part of their upbringing.

#2 Bob Marley the Prophet was a Rasta

Many people desire to become Rasta to walk in the foot steps of the grow dread locksHumanitarian & prophet and Rastafari Musician, Bob Marley. Bob Marley wrote the song “One Love.” Many people fell in love with him through his music knowing he was being inspired by (his faith) Jah. Many people know that to be a Rasta is to show love, unity and a respect for all of nature and Jah creations.

#3 Their Born with it!

Many Rastas are Rasta because they are born with the Rasta Livity. Jah chose them at conception, then at some point in their lives they have said “yes” to this beautiful gift, they can feel yearning to manifest itself in their life. In other words for some, Rastafari was something that had written on their hearts from birth. Invisible to others, but very real in the heart and mind  the individual (Rasta).

#4 Jah Chose them to Be Rasta…

black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaI’ve heard people say “Rastafari is an inborn concept!” and it is. So, many have it since birth, however there are those who are chosen and they don’t know until later. Because (I am assuming) they were not chosen at birth, but chosen later in life. I met a guy (Rastaman) who told me that one day, “Jah just took over” he said. I was happy he shared that with me. It let me know he understood what I had inside too. Rastafari can hit at any age…so there are those who have no clue they are Rasta until the right time.

#5 It Just Makes sense to them!

People don’t want anything to do with Religion any more, but they still want to maintain a relationship with the Creator. Many people know about Rastafari through Reggae music, then research the faith.

  • Rastas are non Religious, you don’t have to attend church…
  • We believe in humility, Peace & Togetherness, we are anti war
  • We do not believe in “converting” others to believe what we believe
  • We Respect nature
  • We try to live as natural as possible
  • We believe all nations should Live together in harmony sharing land and resources

In other words, I think some people become Rasta because it is so calm and peaceful to be a Rasta. There are no real obligations, only the ones you decide for your self, as a Rasta. The basis of the faith is Love! So, why not… become a Rasta…it just makes spiritual sense!

#5 Their Significant other is Rasta

Rasta CoupleMany people especially women, embrace Rastafari Livity because their significant other is Rasta. More people are traveling now a days, and many people are visiting the Caribbean Islands. Because of this many people who wouldnt normally know anything about Rastafari are now getting to know Rastafari Peoples. So, some feel it makes sense for the relationship to embrace the same faith as say, their boyfriend/husband or their girlfriend/wife.

#6 Rastafari  is their Culture

jamaican flag, the jamaican flag buyMany people embrace Rastafari because it is part of their Culture. I can tell you as a Jamaican my self, Jamaica is Rastafari, and Rastafari is Jamaica, There is no separation. Rastafari is such an intricate part of Jamaican Culture that you could almost say Rastafari made Jamaica what it is today. The Music, Food, People, Landscape, & of course the culture of Jamaica is all effected by the beautiful, love of Jah – the creator.

A friend of mine, who is also Jamaican, starting embracing the livity just before I did in 2009. He came to the faith through a best friend he has known since high school. I asked how he felt now that he was Rastafari. He said “It feels good.” He seems more spiritually at peace now, and he is now a teacher of Rastafari Culture and the life of His Imperial majesty. Rastafari was always his Culture, he just needed to come in a little bit closer to get the real fruits that Jah and his Ancestors had waiting for him.

#7 To Embrace holistic Lifestyle

dreadlocks postMany people “become Rasta” because they like what Rastafari represents. The holistic lifestyle, the love of nature, meditation, Creativity, A love for Africa the Mother land of all human life…Dreadlocks (natural and simplistic, no vanity.) Rasta Smoke Marijuana instead of Carcinogenic cigarettes. Rastafari is a faith that loves all things natural, because natural means Jah.

The Perfect Rasta Man!!! (Beliefs and Ideology)

black jesusI was watching one of the videos I placed on my Rasta blog front page.This is my 4th time watching this video, it’s so full of information. I am now on my 4th time really taking in all that this Rasta man is saying. Its everything I feel and know but never had the words for….This blog post is all about the beliefs and Rules of Rastafari.

White Jesus Christ

In Rastafari there is no such thing as a White Jesus Christ. We believe in Jesus Christ but we believe in Jesus Christ the Nazarite who was a dark-skinned man with dreadlocks, who loved God, and was sent by God to inform the people who God is real. It is not about Race (ethnicity) Just truth and reality. Rastafari is always about the hidden truth. The perfect Rasta Man knows the truth about Jesus Christ, and embraces that truth, not Babylon lies.

King Selassie I

King Selassie I is the descendent of King David. Is this fact not worthy of some praise and attention? Of course it is. But the Babylon system does not want you to know about these things. Mainly because then the truth will be revealed that biblical people and Jesus Christ himself, was in fact black. The perfect Rasta man can feel the divinity of King Selassie I as Jah Elect. With or without the Ancestral Lineage.

Dreadlocks

On a Rastafari person, the dreadlocks have a very special meaning. They represent truth, Jah, and natural living. They also represent the awareness that all life began as black and that Jah is a black and very powerful entity that Rasta loves and fears. You cannot call your self Rasta and not have your dreadlocks. It just doesn’t work. Your dreadlocks are your living testimony that you know Jah is real, and that you vow to live to please him all the days of your life. Its sort of like when you marry someone and you  wear a wedding ring. How would you receive a person that told you they were married but just didn’t wear the ring. Nonsensical right. However….

Leonard Howell – Wikipedia.com

‘Leonard Percival Howell was known as The Gongor G.G. Maragh leonard(forGong Guru), was a Jamaican Religious figure. According to his biographer Hélène Lee Howell was born in an Anglican family. He was one of the first preachers of the Rastafari Movement (along with Joseph Hibert, Archibald Dunkley and Robert Hinds), and is sometimes known as The First Rasta.

Born in May Crawle River, Jamaica, Howell left the country as a youth, traveling amongst other places to New York, and returned in 1932. He began preaching in 1933 about what he considered the symbolic portent for the African Diaspora—the crowning of Ras Tafari Makonnen as Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. His preaching asserted that Haile Selassie was the “Messiah returned to earth,” and he published a book called The Promise Key.  Although this resulted in him being arrested, tried for sedition and imprisoned for two years, the Rastafari movement grew.

Over the following years, Howell came into conflict with all the establishment authorities in Jamaica: the planters, the trade unions, established churches, police and colonial authorities, and he was allegedly arrested more than 50 times. He formed a town or commune called Pinnacle in Saint Catherine Parish that became famous as a place for Rastafarians. Nevertheless, this movement prospered, and today the Rastafari faith exists worldwide. Unlike many Rastas Howell never wore dreadlocks. Leonard Howell died in Kingston Jamaica.’

Mr. Howell is known for writing the book, “The Promise Key” but I could only find a book called, “The Promised Key.”

The Work of a Rasta man

A Rasta man or Rasta woman is someone who is supposed to represent his or her people. This is the whole reason they are chosen as Rasta. In being chosen for this very special job, we are also aware that we must keep our mind, heart and soul clean (uncorrupted) to enter Zion. Many Rasta now a day are not taking this seriously, but I do. I am still representing and very much in love with my people. the perfect Rasta man feels compelled to deliver the message of Jah the Almighty, this is his natural-born purpose.

What are some beliefs of the Rastafari People?

Rastas have 10 basic principles. I list them all in my new book entitled white Rastafari. But the basic principles are…

  • Rasta does not eat meat
  • Rasta does not cut the dreadlocks
  • Rasta knows Jah is black

These are 3 principles of every Rastafari man woman and child. If anybody says they eat meat and they are Rasta, I would say they do not have the heart of Rastafari. The perfect Rasta man knows to eat meat, is to eat dead flesh.

Deep love for Black People

From I was just a little girl, I understood that Rasta loved the black Identity. Iblack couple knew that the colours Red Yellow and Green represented Africa, and I also understood somehow that dreadlocks were a way of wearing black African hair in its natural state. But I was just a kid so I wasn’t completely aware, but these were the feelings I had as a little girl about 2 and 3 years old.

Every Rasta has an appreciation for the black Identity. The beauty of black skin, the truth of black natural hair, and a love of black Culture. The perfect Rasta man no matter where he is from, has a deep love for the black African Identity.

Rastafari Livity

The perfect Rastaman enjoys living his life as Rastafari. This means listening to the beautiful sounds of Rasta Reggae music, eating Rasta Ital Food, Using natural products to clean his home and cleanse his body, and give thanks and praises unto the creator – Jah every day. To live as Rastafari, means to live life the way Jah intended them to live. Rastafari is a spirituality that embraces natural living, this is what the Rastafari livity is all about.

Cleanliness and Purity

One thing I have yet to meet is a Rasta man who is not clean. I know some people think that because Rasta wear the hair in dreadlocks, we must not be clean, but actually the opposite is true. Rasta has a “Crown” upon our heads. We make cleanliness and purity a priority, as a way of showing off our crown.
The Rastafari dreadlocks crown represents…

  • Royalty
  • Love
  • Divinity
  • Life
  • Freedom
  • King Selassie I
  • Jah

Rasta is some of the cleanest people on the planet, because we where a Jah crown on our heads, we keep our surroundings clean, to show our love and respect, to Jah.

 

Rasta beliefs on love/dating/marriage….Just a sneak peak

Hey guys. As I stated I am writing a book on Rastafari for all of you.  This is my first book, and I have other things to do in my life so I have kind of slowed down on the writing for now. The good news is the rough copy is all done….so I just have to finish the final copy and we are all set. I know many of you wonder what Rastafarians believe on a whole slew of topics, but I wanted to make this post specific on love dating and marriage.

Rasta beliefs on dating non Rastas

rasta love and marriageMany “deep” for lack of better word, Rastafari men and women will not date someone outside of their spiritual beliefs. We understand that this could mean being single for a long time and even maybe forever. We depend on Jah to bring us the right person when the time is right. However, there are some Rasta who are ok with the notion of meeting someone who is not Rasta and then “converting” that person for lack of a better word, into Rastafari. So, like anything else to each his own. You will find more men will date a non Rasta woman, and more Rasta women, will not date a non Rasta man. This is generally speaking. Maybe its all about availability….who knows.

Why do some Rastas like Bob Marley have so many women?

rastafari love and marriageRasta men, are not immune to having multiple relationships with women. But truly I feel they just have too much love in their hearts. This is gonna get me in trouble….Most Rastafari men I would say 95% are faithful, and 5 percent not so faithful. This is for various reasons. Bob Marley was a very good-looking superstar, and he was Rastafari. Many women were attracted to him and I’m sure him attracted to them. What I am getting at is this for some men of Rastafari they have many women at one time because the women allow it. On the other hand there are Rastafari men who just don’t believe in sleeping around at all. In fact most of us “Jamaican Ras” operate in this manner. People get away with what they can folks…bottom line.

Do Rastas believe in true love?

Rastas believe big time in true love. We do believe that true love is possible, and when we love we love with all our hearts. For someone who is not ready for this type of love, they may feel undeserving, or “smothered” Rastas get into a relationship intending to stay there, most of us, for the most part. Love is one of the things we live for. With love, food tastes better, life looks brighter, and we can be mentally clearer. Romantic love is an essential part of human life. As an earthly being we have earthly needs. Love and affection are paramount to a person of Rastafari spirituality.


How can I make my Rasta King love me more?

Many women have put comments regarding their relationship wondering, is he truthful? Is he sleeping around? Things of this nature. Perhaps if you feel the need to ask these questions, he is not the one for you. If your man is clearly accessible and perhaps you want to deepen the bond the two of you have as a non Rastafari woman, trust him, and believe what he tells you about “Jah” and about life. Eat how he eats, live how he lives, love him how he loves you and respect it. Your Rasta King will greatly appreciate this. And when you do this and he wants to touch you passionately, you can thank me in the comments….lol

Rasta beliefs on Marriage

Truth is ladies, we Rastas don’t really believe in marriage. That is not to say we wont do it. Just most of us don’t make a big deal out of it. We believe the relationship is the marriage, and like marriage if we no longer want to be in the relationship we will leave. We also believe marriage doesn’t come with any gaurantees…just because you are married it doesn’t mean the person will love you for ever. We believe in letting love just be what it’s going to be and that a piece of paper isn’t all that important when it comes to matters of the heart. The support, the communication, being reliable, and being each others best friend is what a relationship should be all about. Put your heart in it and it will be great. This is what we Rasta believe about marriage.  This post is very short. perhaps I will writ more another time. Thanks for reading. Bye  for now.

Do Rasta believe in getting having children and settling down?

 

We Ras live for this type of relationship. To settle down and have a family is every single rasta dream. However we know sometimes Jah wants us to stay clear and clean for his own reasons. We accept the single life and embrace it just the same we would our committed relationship. A Rasta in a long-term relationship, typically is a happy one. We love to do things for our partners and for a children, because we see God in our partners and our children. Please visit my new forum if you are looking for information on Rasta dating, or post your own profile seeking love. Blessed Love. Rastafari is the truth every time!

Rasta man (jamaican) – how to date him how to love him

How to love a Jamaican Rasta man

rasta man love sexy men

true rasta man Dennis Brown

I have met people who say they are Rasta and are not. So this I write here and now is not about them. I am writing about the “true” Jamaican Rasta man. The kind who is humble, considerate, and gentle. The kind any woman would fall in love with. But these men are not always easy to be with, for many reasons. To sum it all up. If you are not Rasta your self, a Jamaican Rasta man may be difficult to deal with, and hard to understand his motivations.

Be gentle with your Rastaman

Be gentle with your rastaman, he is special and a true gift from God in the deepest meaning possible. Forgive him when he hurts you and is unaware of it.

Give your Rasta man space to be him self

Give your rastaman space to be him self. If you are not Rasta, this is of the utmost importance to keeping your relationship with him healthy and thriving. Not giving your rastaman space is a very fast road to having him run away from you.

Give him lots and lots of love, but be pure and clean spiritually

 

how to love a rastaman

give rasta lots of love

Give your Jamaican Rasta man, lots and lots and lots…did I say lots? ….of love. The only way your “true” Jamaican rasta man is going to reject your love is if he feels you are not good for him. Which usually means you are acting like your life is to serve the man “downstairs” instead of the man “upstairs” and that we Ras do not accept. So, give him lots of love and affection, and loving attention. If you have a true Jamaican rasta man in your life ladies…believe me you don’t even need a television set, if you catch my drift. Jah makes beautiful things.

Bob Marley had many lovers and many children

Bob Marley had many lovers and as a result had many children. This was his own personal choice.

bob marley had many wives

bob Marley had many lovers

 There Rastafari men who don’t even have one lover, there are Rastafari men who are very faithful, there are Rastafari men who wouldn’t even think to cheat on their women. Those men are probably with women who value the faith, and value themselves, among other things. You also have to remember, Bob Marley was a Superstar! Superstars have groupies, and we all know he is not the first man to have a baby with another woman outside of his legal marriage – and he wont be the last!

Are all Jamaican men promiscuous

 

are all jamaican men promiscuous

jamaican men sure are sexy

There are a lot of Jamaican men who are promiscuous. But I have said it before and I will say it again. I truly believe this is because in places like Canada and the United States they get spoiled. Very spoiled. Most of the women accept this bad behavior, so the men do it because they are getting away with it. One or two bad experiences and we women feel all the men are like that. But truly a Rasta man – a “true” Rasta man is not like that, I know that from my heart. Because The Most High created him to know “right from wrong”

Many women are attracted to the Jamaican Rasta man

 

Many women are very attracted to The Rasta  man. Some say its the hair (dreadlocks) I say its his inner self that attracts women. The innocence of his soul that is showing, ok yes. Combined with the dreadlocks, and some dark beautiful skin, this is very alluring. So, ladies don’t complain, if you wanted him, and you got him, just know to see someone and to know them are two different things.

My own Jamaican Rasta man, at least I hope ??

Can you believe I don’t officially have my own Jamaican Rasta man? I tell you what being a Rastafari  woman and dating, Is not an easy thing. The other day a guy from Bosnia of all places picked me up. Yes! Bosnia. These types of men are always attracted to me. That’s not what I am supposed to be typing about. There is a guy I met about 2 months ago, physically he is exactly what I asked the most high for. But can we have a relationship? I don’t know. He is in Jamaica right now and will return, in April of this year. He did seem nice ….maybe we can be an item, a Rastafari couple is a beautiful thing! Rastafari!

 So why does the Jamaican Rastaman have a bad wrap in relationships?

 There are some Jamaican rasta man who “take advantage” of the fact that women find them so attractive. Most are not like this. They no Jah is always watching and always listening and do not wish to be a sinner. This is the truth ladies. So please do not judge the whole bunch because of a few rotten ones. Rastaman knows right from wrong more than any other. And treating people with respect is a big part of our spirituality. Want to know if the Rastafari way of life is right for you….click here.

So whats the verdict on the jamaican rastaman?

There are many who are gentle and have good intentions. If you are a Rastafari woman you increase your chances greatly of having a loving fulfilling relationship. There are some who are “too in love with woman” and therefore sleep around. Knowing who we are and knowing what we Rasta know, these men are the exception and not the rule.

If you have a true Jamaican rastaman in your life, you are blessed you may not know it. But you are blessed. Oh and you don’t have to Jamaican to Rasta, but this is the type I am most familiar with as a Jamaican Rastafari woman.

I hope this article was fun and informative.

Rastafarianism – Rasta beliefs and Rasta religion

Rasta Bob Marley

Rastafarianism is the Religion of “Rasta” people. The correct term for this religion is “Rastafari.” In case you are not familiar with “Rastafari” The late great “Bob Marley” was a Rasta man who lived his life, “Rastafari.”

What is Rastafarianism or Rastafari all about? 

Rastafari is a spirituality, or way of life, as the Rasta people call it. People often ask, where does this (religion) spirituality come from? It comes from “The most High” God. Or, one could say it comes from the heart. Either way it is of “divine” origin.

Many Rastas are characterized by long dreadlocks and the wearing of the Rasta colors, Red Yellow and Green.  

Why Rastafari is not a Religion 

 

  Many Rastas say Rastafari is not a religion. they refer to it as a “way of life.” They have no hard and fast a rules, all of their beliefs and values come from the heart and are incorporated happily in to their daily life.

What is a Rasta man or a Rasta woman

rastafari: rasta man, rasta hats, rastafarian beliefs

Rasta man and his beliefs in God

Many “Rasta man or Rastafarians, usually men, are seen wearing dreadlocks, “Rasta Tams”, “Rasta hats”, or “Rasta wear“, smoking weed, chanting, saying things like “irie” There is a lot more to any true Rasta man beyond the obscurity. Rastaman believe in God. For many, this is a hard fact to swallow. How can someone who looks so different believe in something that is so common, and so simple? The reason is Rastafarians take a very down to earth, realistic, natural approach to loving God. We know that God is in the unseen, therefore, we dress a little different because we understand what is spiritually important, and what is not.

Rastafarian beliefs

Rastafarians do not have beliefs. There are no hard and fast rules to this culture, this way of life, this spirituality. We have values and principles, that we hold dear to our hearts and try to instill in our children. Here is a list of just some of the Rastafarian values.

  • God adherence to the rules of the bible
  • one love for all races
  • natural living
  • unity for all mankind
  • appreciation and respect for all forms of life

These are the main beliefs or values of the Rastafarian culture. From these we get all the other values as well.

Rastafarians and the topic of marriage:

Once again the answer is very simple. We Rastafarians do not have any hard and fast rules regarding marriage or anything else really. We believe marriage should be between a man and a woman, and that we can marry if we want to, or not. In Rastafarian relationships, we do not place a lot of emphasis on marriage. Simply because we believe a marriage does not make a relationship. We know a commitment to be with someone comes from the heart of that person, not a piece of paper with their signature on it.

Rastafari the religion…not a religion at all???

The Rastafarian religion is something I hold very dear to my heart. I am pleased to share my knowledge with others who want to learn about Rastafari and the word of God. Lets get started. “Rastafari” is not a “religion.” I must make that very clear. We do not follow a strict set of rules laid out for us written in a book somewhere. The only book we follow and believe in is “the bible” We read the same bible that people of “christian” faith believe in.
Therefore Rastafari is a “way of life!” It is a daily choice to follow our hearts and live the life we can feel, sense and know, “jah” (god) wants us to live.

Rasta hats popularized by Bob Marley

buy rasta tams

Rasta hats have become very popular now a days. Bob Marley popularized the “Rasta hat” back in the late 70s and early 80s when he would sing live, or appear on album covers wearing the Rasta man hat. Red, yellow and green, proudly displayed. Many of his fans soon quickly followed. Now the Rasta hat is worn by many, Rastafarians and non Rastafarians alike as a way of showing a down to earth, naturalist lifestyle. Click here if you are looking for a place to buy rasta hats.

The many ethnic backgrounds of Rastafari

Rastafari is a spirituality of the heart. There for there are many Rastafarians who are not black, and who live all around the world. Rastafari is for everyone. As long as you have a love of god, a love for people of all races, a belief of kindness and peace towards your fellow-man, then maybe you could be or you are Rastafarian your self. Here is 10 Questions to know if Rastafari is right for you.

Many Reggae Music artists of Jamaica are Rastafarians

Reggae music is a big part of Rastafari. “They move together.” Rastafari needs reggae, reggae needs Rastafari. These two feed off each other. There have been so many hit reggae singers out of jamaica who were and are Rastafarian. You have Capleton, Damian Marley, and Sizzla to name a few. Of past you have Mr. Dennis Brown, Garnett Silk, and Jacob Miller, all these guys are my favorites. Rastafarians are a big part of reggae music culture, and jamaican culture.

Origin of Rastafari beliefs

Many Rastafarians became Rastafarians because they could feel the spirituality of Ras Tafari in their hearts. Therefore, I don’t have hard facts to present to you but the ones you will find in many places on the internet. Many Rastafarians believe in Emperor Haile Selassie, who was a black king crowned in 1930 in Ethiopia, and that he is from the same lineage as jesus christ. that is really all I know for hard facts. Other than that we get most of our beliefs from our hearts, and the word of God. To read about the God of Rastafarians click here.
