I give thanks for the I's wisemind and overstanding Cedric and jessep86.

CarterBlunt and King Jam, you think it is a joke thing? You two clowning around, acting like a couple of Bozos.

King Jam I learned about that documentary from the Honorable Priest Isaac. He sighted His Majesty's locks in the video. I just shared the video Iman don't cling to it.

You want to call I blinded, weak hearted, lost sheep? You mix up my words and make assumptions. If you check my words I am just showing the I that there is power in long hair and dreadlocks. That His Majesty has worn locks at various times and that HIM has always had longer hair and beard.

I never say one has to have locks or not. In my own trod, I went many years without locks. As I do sight the energy in hair and I didn't want to lock up the energies I had at that time. I just kept longer hair and beard. However, as I grew deeper in I trod, my dreadlocks grew too.

Now I don't sight it as one is more spiritual for having locks, that is your own assumptions of my words. I do however sight dreadlocks as a hola symbol, a spiritual expression of InI's resistance to Babylon, and a sign of InI's identity as Rastafari.

You asked "dont you know the first man preaching the name of rastafari was IS LEONARD P HOWELL whom never had locks"? Yes I know that some ones sight it that way. And many early Rastafari bredren kept a beard and afro like His Majesty did in those times. However I sight up that it is the first man and womban of Iration, who are the first Rastafari people. And the first man and womban wore dreadlocks upon their crowns. Hola and Blessed.

JAH Love and Guidance
