How to cook Ital Rasta food: 6 Rules

how to keep a rasta happy

Make a Rasta happy by….Cook strictly Ital (Vegan) – Rasta love food that reminds them
of Jah living. Food such as vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds, and earth vegetables…, so be sure to cook strictly (Ital) Vegan food, to keep your Rasta Happy.

  1. Don’t Curse and swear – Rasta do not like the sound of swear words, or put downs, or anything that is said with a malicious or negative intent. Use positive words to express your self or simply leave out the swearing and negative intent. Rasta are sensitive beings.
  2. Show Love to Children and The Elderly – Rasta love to care for the poor, needy, elderly and children. If you care for persons from this group, this will make your Rasta very happy.
  3. You Spend time alone…this makes a Rasta happy – Spend time alone without stimulation from something or someone else. Rasta believes that time alone is time with God. Embrace it.
  4. If you want to keep your Rasta happy…Respect his or her alone time! – Respect when your Rasta is a lone.  A Rastafari spiritual and personal time is of the utmost importance. Rasta have spiritual times, that last for hours, or for days… If you can handle that…your Rasta will be quite happy.
  5. Love Jah Rastafari, and your Rasta will love you – A true Rastafari who loves and respects his partner  will want him/her to have their own faith, and Rasta takes simple comfort in the fact that they love God, and have their own personal relationship with him. Some Rasta may appreciate if a one does decide to convert to Rastafari.
  6. how to keep a rastaman happyPlay Rasta Reggae Music, this makes all Rasta feel happy inside – Rastafari men and women love to hear Rastafari Reggae music playing. It makes them feel good inside. Try playing some Rasta Reggae music to show your Rasta that you care and that you are sensitive to their needs and desires. Try some Dennis Brown, Some Gregory Isaacs, or even some “old school” Garnett Silk. Your Rasta will smile to be surprised by these spiritual sounds.

  7. Seek to “Overstand”
    – Seek to understand situations rather than get angry or become offended. Rasta love when people are patient and seek deeper “understanding” of things.
  8. Never discuss S*x – Rasta do not believe in discussing s*xual issues. We believe if your mate, is not a good match for you in this way…it is your fate. We use clean words for s*x, and we don’t seek to pervert or amplify sexual encounters. Rasta sees s*x as love-making.
  9. Buy Gifts that are Rastafari, these make Rasta happy- Rasta like gifts that are red yellow and green, related to Africa, or have a picture of Marcus Garvey, King Selassie I, or Bob Marley on it. When searching for a gift for your Rasta keep this in mind. Rasta love Rasta hats, and Rasta beaded necklaces in case you were wondering. These types of gifts make Rasta feel happy inside. Buy your Rastafarian flag.
  10. Respect your Rasta personal space and items – don’t change or touch or move anything that belongs to a Rasta. It may have spiritual meaning. Such an action may be taken personally, but Rasta are so gentle that they would never say. Keep your Rasta happy and don’t touch or move personal items.
  11. Don’t ask too many questions about his/her faith – Just accept Rasta as they are….I guarantee the Rasta in your life is accepting you as you are! So, why not return the favour? Don’t ask to many questions about his/her faith…it supposed to be a personal thing anyway right?
  12. Embrace Cleanliness, Dirtiness makes Rasta unhappy – Rasta like all things “clean.” Rasta love toRastafari live in a clean home, have on clean clothes, eat clean food, use clean language, and to maintain clean thoughts. That the Rastafari way of life.
  13. Rasta feel happiest when you love yourself“Self Love” is one of the basic principles of Rastafari. By loving your self, Rasta show you more love for accepting your self the way that Jah created you.

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 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).

 

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_Kindle

#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 of Rastafari 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 Jamaican Music, Jamaican Food, Jamaican People, Jamaican 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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9O1XygQ1YOQ
 

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.
