Blessed Love Idren
Bless Up IPXninja, Give thanks for the huge compliment. Hopefully I can live up to the expectations haha. Good to see the I on this forum. I hope InI family remains healthy and is able to persevere through these troubled times.
Ignorant/Wise Rasta Youth, Give thanks for the I’s kind words. I man glad ideas I present can be helpful perspectives. I think Rasta and imagination can go hand in hand because imagination is a very important tool to help invision and create the world InI want to live in. Just because InI Rastafari deal with reality does not mean InI should forget the benefits of maintaining healthy imagination. When InI are little youths, InI can use imagination effortlessly. As InI get older and are forced to deal with reality more, it can be easy to devalue imagination. However I think the real visionaries and creators in this world have been able to hold onto that ability of imagination InI have as youths, and use it in a healthy way to literally make or bring things into creation.
The book I suggest about Melchizedek (not to be confused with the misspelled agent poster) is where I learned a biblical connection to that type of thinking, otherwise more modern examples would be works on quantum physics like “What the Bleep Do We Know” or I Empress tells I about Christian Mystics law of assumption, and also I have heard of the law of attraction. I don’t know a lot about those different subjects, and I have issues with some, specifically the law of attraction’s obsession with material objects, but to I they are all talking about the same thing: Creating InI own destiny. InI as the LIVING JAH.
As far as fighting for InI freedom goes, just know that babylon hoping for InI to try and fight toe to toe, because they got us out gunned and it wouldn’t even be close to a fair fight. They coming up with excuses to whip InI into a fervor of violence. Be careful of the solutions that InI promote. The fight for Haitian independence was a much different time and place than InI live in now. InI need to be careful in this time of surveillance and take-way-knowledge-y that InI don’t play into their hands, in many different ways. Not only are they hoping InI will physically challenge them so InI can be quickly subdued, InI should be aware that babylon building a comprehensive digital profile of each and every one of InI, searching for targets. The ideas we carelessly throw about or search for on the internet are being used to build their profile of InI and might effect us in ways that are not easy to comprehend at this time.
The death to all downpressors quote, I think the meaning has changed over time. From what little I know about the original Rastafari led by Leonard Howell at Pinnacle farm, I heard they were amassing guns. I think being the late 1920’s and 1930’s in Jamaica the call for the death of all Black and White Downpressors would have had a literal meaning. I don’t know and am by no means an authority on the subject. I would choose different words for I word sound power or iditations than beginning something with “death” and say Live Up Rastafari or Live Up Righteousness because InI should know that the wicked shall perish without InI needing to chant them down, and any positive thought or prayer will rule over a negative conception.
I know this is where I may disagree with a lot of Rastafari, but I think it is important for InI to acquire and be trained in the same tools that babylon might use against InI. Again, by no means am I suggesting it a good idea to carry those tools on I person at all times, but to have one and know how to use it I think is smart. As with everything, InI need to be wise in our actions and keep egos out of important decisions. I promote self sufficiency and to be prepared, and where I live far away from any neighbors I think it is necessary. Maybe that is evidence of I own unhealthy imagination or maybe it is justified, I know I would rather have it and never need it than wish I had it. I have reasoned about it before, but I think that is what Isaiah 54:15-17 talks about.
Keep calm and praise JAH :)
HAILE SELASSIE I LOVE
