May the words of i mouth and the i-ditation of i heART be acceptable in INI site oh rasta far I
I don't want to get involved in this discussion at all... yet ini called to say something. May the most high speak thru this vessel and not the vessel speak for self...
It is essential that ones and ones devote the i's to INITY......and if that means to reason out die-vision with dialouge that is uncomfortable, so be it. The RIGHT attitude about this is RASPECT... that is the FOUNDATION for this groundation. Humility is the strengh of the foundation, becuz life is only as strong as he weakest link... in this web of life.. and brederns and sistrens, ones know that LIFE has many weak links in the arrogant greediness of downpressors and thier $hit$tems.
There must be RASPect, that does not mean acceptance nor tolerence nor acclamation to what INI know is not RIGHT... it means to RASpect life... live an let live knowing ones intentions. Overstanding ones intentions... from there ones can reason out what is not righteous and move accordingly.
"who can discern my errors Lord, please forgive my hidden faults...keep me from willful sin, let it not rule over i, then i will be blameless, innocent of great trangression"
Rasta, ini iron sharpenig iron. There is NO room in this movement to personalize critical analysis, if ones want to use such intellectualism chatter.
The breden wrote a book that he felt lead to write and is not making a profit upon it. Only the man knows his intention.
The sistren takes offense to the writing of this as an afront to ini culture.
INI site the situation as this. INI african tradition is oral. Inin entire culture is a structure of oral teachings nd activism of livity. Today ones and ones look for scholarly way to learn. Ones are writng for profit about something that they know about through studies and plnne eperiences. Perhaps it is a zeal for coming to overstand the TRUTH. Yet the TRUTH is no great discovery. It is not NEW age and many ones, especially of "PRIVILEGDE", are experiencing what has been spirit for i-ver. This awakening is exciting, but know this is not new..just like columbus did not discover anything that had not already exisited...ini culture is grounded in mysticism....they are not mysteries nor secrets. The movement of rasta far is a step at time. ONes of "white priveldge" may have the right intentions yet the movements are not always acccepted by those who have trod this journey for iver. SITE? The role of "white" (however that is defined) in "black" (however that is defined) will not be unified until the JUSTICE is the first and formost focus.....TO get to that, the education of scholarsip by the so called priveldged is to set the record straight about ini ancestors,,,then...then one is open to recieve mysticism to use wisely.
This book....without having read it, will only speak to those who have a pure heART and a strong mind to separate truth from sensationalism.....no one can be led astray by black words on white paper.....only the wicked will profit from thier traps and thier profits lead to self-destructon.....
There is no judgement here on any ones here,,,,ini leave that up to the righteous i's, who know in the innermost hearts of the i purpose. do and say what is right is what the most high expects,,,,
blessed love rasta far i
