What/Who is “Jah Rastafari?”

emperor Haile Selassie I

Jah Rastafari King Selassie I

  1. King Selassie I  – King Selassie I (is) a man. We Rasta call him “Jah Rastafari.”
  2. God of Rasta people – Jah Rastafari is the God of Rasta People. But, if you ask a Rasta he/she will say, he is the god of “all people.”
  3. A Spirit Entity that lives – We Rasta never say King Selassie I is dead. We Rasta refer to H.I.M in the present tense. He is so powerful, and so necessary to life, that he lives forever…in spirit.
  4. The creator of Heaven and Earth Jah Rastafari is the creator of heaven and earth. Some people call him “God.” If you called upon me but not by my right name, I also may not answer.
  5. The spirituality of NaziritesRastafari is the spirituality of the Nazirites of the biblical times. Rastafari is of today. Same spirituality. “no razor shall come upon his head” Rasta Dreadlocks grow and flow and hang down low.
  6. Jah Rastafari beliefs of Rasta people – Jah Rastafari is the name of our spirituality. Rastafari people are the people who know Jah Rastafari is the creator. We are also called “Rasta.” For short.

I hope this helped to clarify how Rasta use the term “Jah Rastafari.”

Why a Rasta Bible?      

As I read certain parts of the holy bible, I and I feel “high. You too may experience the meditation of Rastafari when you read these bible scripture.

This book is for those who yearn to know and feel what Rastafari know and feel. Jah love, Jah Guidance, Jah presence is real wisdom. Read his words; allow your mind to be renewed by them. Re-read them 2x daily, feel your spirit begin to become clean.

In Rastafari there is no “Rasta Bible” However, This book is a compilation of some of my most cherished bible scripture, relevant to Rastafari and heartfelt by me as an Empress. I share them with you in the hopes that you too may experience the wisdom of Rastafari and feel the love and might of Jah in your soul.

This book is for those who seek Rastafari spiritual understanding and wisdom, and this book is also for those who know that the bible must contain some text that can provide one with spiritual training of the mind that will mold one to become wise and draw closer to Jah.

I have compiled for you my favorite bible scripture. They are full of Rastafari Wisdom and Overstanding. Read them and feel the meditation take shape in your spirit.

Blessed Love.

Introduction

I too am mortal like everyone else, a descendant of the first man formed from the earth. I was modeled in flesh inside a mother’s womb,

2 where, for ten months, in blood I acquired substance — the result of virile seed and pleasure, sleep’s companion.

3 I too, when I was born, drew in the common air, I fell on the same ground that bears us all, and crying was the first sound I made, like everyone else.

4 I was nurtured in swaddling clothes, with every care.

5 No king has known any other beginning of existence;

6 for there is only one way into life, and one way out of it.

rasta prayer book_

If you are in a spiritual battle,

and need some guidance I highly recommend this book.

 

 

7 And so I prayed, and understanding was given me; I entreated, and the spirit of Wisdom came to me.

8 I esteemed her more than scepters and thrones; compared with her, I held riches as nothing.

9 I reckoned no precious stone to be her equal, for compared with her, all gold is a pinch of sand, and beside her, silver ranks as mud.

10 I loved her more than health or beauty, preferred her to the light, since her radiance never sleeps.

11 In her company all good things came to me, and at her hands incalculable wealth.

12 All these delighted me, since Wisdom brings them, though I did not then realize that she was their mother.

13 What I learned diligently, I shall pass on liberally, I shall not conceal how rich she is.

14 For she is to human beings an inexhaustible treasure, and those who acquire this win Jah’s friendship, commended to him by the gifts of instruction.

15 May Jah grant me to speak as he would wish and conceive thoughts worthy of the gifts I have received, since he is both guide to Wisdom and director of sages;

16 for we are in his hand, yes, ourselves and our sayings, and all intellectual and all practical knowledge.

17 He it was who gave me sure knowledge of what exists, to understand the structure of the world and the action of the elements,

18 the beginning, end and middle of the times, the alternation of the solstices and the succession of the seasons,

19 the cycles of the year and the position of the stars,

20 the natures of animals and the instincts of wild beasts, the powers of spirits and human mental processes, the varieties of plants and the medical properties of roots.

21 And now I understand everything, hidden or visible, for Wisdom, the designer of all things, has instructed me.

22 For within her is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, incisive, unsullied, lucid, invulnerable, benevolent, shrewd,

23 irresistible, beneficent, friendly to human beings, steadfast, dependable, unperturbed, almighty, all-surveying, penetrating all intelligent, pure and most subtle spirits.

24 For Wisdom is quicker to move than any motion; she is so pure, she pervades and permeates all things.

25 She is a breath of the power of Jah, pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty; so nothing impure can find its way into her.

26 For she is a reflection of the eternal light, untarnished mirror of Jah’s active power, and image of his goodness.

27 Although she is alone, she can do everything; herself unchanging, she renews the world, and, generation after generation, passing into holy souls, she makes them into Jah’s friends and prophets;

28 for Jah loves only those who dwell with Wisdom.

29 She is indeed more splendid than the sun, she outshines all the constellations; compared with light, she takes first place,

30 for light must yield to night, but against Wisdom evil cannot prevail.

Blessings of Wisdom

18 My child, from your youth choose discipline,

and when you have gray hair you will still find wisdom.

19 Come to her like one who plows and sows,

and wait for her good harvest.

For when you cultivate her you will toil but little,

and soon you will eat of her produce.

20 She seems very harsh to the undisciplined;

fools cannot remain with her.

21 She will be like a heavy stone to test them,

and they will not delay in casting her aside.

22 For wisdom is like her name;

she is not readily perceived by many.

23 Listen, my child, and accept my judgment;

do not reject my counsel.

24 Put your feet into her fetters,

and your neck into her collar.

25 Bend your shoulders and carry her,

and do not fret under her bonds.

26 Come to her with all your soul,

and keep her ways with all your might.

27 Search out and seek, and she will become known to you;

and when you get hold of her, do not let her go.

28 For at last you will find the rest she gives,

and she will be changed into joy for you.

29 Then her fetters will become for you a strong defense,

and her collar a glorious robe.

30 Her yoke[c] is a golden ornament,

and her bonds a purple cord.

31 You will wear her like a glorious robe,

and put her on like a splendid crown.[d]

32 If you are willing, my child, you can be disciplined,

and if you apply yourself you will become clever.

33 If you love to listen you will gain knowledge,

and if you pay attention you will become wise.

34 Stand in the company of the elders.

Who is wise? Attach yourself to such a one.

35 Be ready to listen to every godly discourse,

and let no wise proverbs escape you.

36 If you see an intelligent person, rise early to visit him;

let your foot wear out his doorstep.

37 Reflect on the statutes of the Lord,

and meditate at all times on his commandments.

It is he who will give insight to[e] your mind,

and your desire for wisdom will be granted.

Sirach – King James Version Bible.

 

What is Rastafari?

Rastafari is a daily celebration of African Roots and Culture. The purpose of Rastafari is to guide one to live clean and pure that a person may be deemed “fit” (by Jah) to Enter Holy Mount Zion.

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who adheres to the Rastafari Livity (way of life). Rasta are “called” to carry “the light” of Jah Rastafari, and to deliver “the message” of this way of life to others. By this we can see that to embrace the Rastafari way of life is a responsibility and commitment of the heart.

Beliefs of Rasta about God?

Rasta know that God is Jah. that Jah is an “African” Spirit. That he is very loving, forgiving and very powerful. Rasta “know”that Jah created heaven and earth, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and he parted the Red Sea for the Israelites. “Jah” is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob spoken about in the scriptures of the Christian Bible. Jah “Raised up” King Selassie I as his Elect, to protect the Garden of Eden.

What is The Rastafari Livity?

The Rastafari Livity is a Celebration of African Roots and Culture that honors Jah. Rasta live life daily in all things they do to honor and show love for Jah, Jah Elect and Jah Creations. From the food that is cooked (Ital) clean and natural, to the way we wear our hair (in dreadlocks)fuss and vanity free, to the colors that we wear (Red Yellow and Green). Rastafari Livity is a commitment of love and honour to and for Jah, the Almighty Creator of all living things all the days of our life.

The Spiritual Duty of Rasta

  1. To love – As Rasta it is our Job to show love. Rasta does not reject love in any form. If someone asks us to do them a favor, we do it…to show even more love. If someone wants to give a Rasta a hug we do not refuse it. Some more ways Rasta show love is by being there for our friends and families, and Spending time in and surrounded by nature, to show Jah, the creator we love and appreciate the land he has given us. As Rasta showing love is one of the ways how we honour Jah.
  2. To Liv Free – To live Free as Rasta is very important. Rasta believes life should have no restrictions. As long as a person is not “hurting life” or “taking life”, one should live as one chooses. “Freedom” in life is the basis for being one with Jah. Freedom to love and honour Jah, Freedom to Roam, freedom to spend our spiritual time  as we choose… Just how Jah, the creator, intended!
  3. To be a “Servant” of Jah – To fulfill the duty of Rasta as Jah servant is very simple.Iit means helping and loving other people. As Rasta we see ourselves as “extensions” of Jah helping hand, heres on earth. Rasta allows Jah to “use us” as his instruments, to provide help, hope assistance whenever the opportunity presents itself. Rasta always say “yes” to opening the door for others, to carrying a grocery bag, to lending money to those who ask. It is the duty of Rasta to Serve Jah by serving his creations (others)
  4. To Enter Holy Mount Zion – The Purpose of the Rastafari Livity is to provide a guide for those who desire to enter Zion (heaven). Zion is where Jah, the Most High roams. There is only love, peace, light, freedom, wholeness, and Jah “light” in Zion. Only those with clean loving, Hearts can enter Zion. It is our Duty as Rasta, to follow Rastafari way of life, as our Guide.. so that our soul may enter Holy Mount Zion.

“Rastafari Royals” (a fiction book)

Hi guys. Well, I am starting to look at my life in new ways. One of things I am trying to do lately is try new things….let me get straight to the point.

I am writing Rastafari Fiction. Yes! Rastafari Fiction! Yeah weird. But it is truly one of the few ways I can teach Rastafari and get my point across.

anyway here is a sample of my book. …

Kingly Screamed Rexellas name as he barged into the Hospital room where she had just given birth.

He was huffing and puffing as he asked her the question that had been bothering him the whole way as he drove to the hospital.

“Did you name her yet?”

Rexella found it odd, he didn’t ask to hold the baby. She didn’t expect a kiss on the cheek, as it was against Jamaican and Rastafari Culture to show romantic affection in front of a parent. But he didnt even ask how Rexella was doing.

“Well…” Rexella looked at Kingly Quizzically..wondering why he was asking such an odd question.

“We….decided on Emily…Right?”

“Emily…?” Kingly doubled over struggling to catch his breath. “No, No, No!”

He finally stood up straight and and waved both his hands , and shook his head in negation.

Rexella wondered if he had been smoking Marijuana before he arrived, but knew that that was part of his Religion and resisted asking him outright.

“We cannot name her Emily!” Said Kingly with a force that made Rexella angry and uncomfortable. Rexella really started to second guess herself. She felt perhaps she married Kingly for all the wrong reasons….For Royal wealth, For his sexy Jamaican swag…

Maybe she had made a big mistake….Maybe she made a mistake in following her heart.

Maybe these Rastafari Royals really were “Devil worshippers,” and “Satanists” “with dreadlocks” as her sisters had warned her. Maybe it was time to consider moving back home.

King Heights was sitting in the Armchair across the room. The Royal Heights Family did not believe in the use of technology,  such as laptops, or televisions, but King Heights did carry a cell phone for emergencies, Just as Kingly was telling Rexella they could not name the baby “Emily” King Heights Received a text from Empress Decca….

“So, what are we going to name her?” Rexella asked Kingly very slowly and deliberately as she she struggled inside her self to understand why her husband wanted to change the name of their newborn baby girl at the last minute, and in fact after she had already been born.

Kingly thought Rexella looked extra beautiful as she now had a “glow about her, as she was sitting up in the hospital bed.

“Oh I don’t know…” Kingly tried to make himself sound as if he was hesitating…

If Rexella knew that Kingly wanted to change the name of their Daughter, something they had discussed months ago, based on the word of his Mother, Kingly knew Rexella would “dig her heels in” and refuse. Kingly knew Rexella didn’t really understand Rastafari.  Sometimes he knew it was just better not to explain.

King Heights suddenly stood up and awkwardly interjected….

“Daughta… Can I have a word with Kingly for a minute?

Rexella liked it when King Heights called her “Daughta.” It made her feel special…like a part of the family.

“Yes, of Course.” replied Rexella, as she swaddled and rocked her beautiful new baby girl, some more. King Heights could ask Rexella to have or to do anything. She trusted him….he knew she would always say yes.

King Heights walked over to Kingly and gently ushered him out of the room. smiling at Rexellla as he tried  to appear nonchalant, and in control of his emotions.

When they were outside the Hospital room door…King Heights asked Kingly with an Urgency in his eyes …

“….Did you bring the bible?”

“Yes! It is in my backpack!”

…..

Thanks for reading…sorry if it sucks!

21 things about dating a jamaican man

Dating a Jamaican man – “Must Know” #1

7 Reasons women love Jamaican men?

  • Jamaican men have a nice sexy Jamaican accent
  • Jamaican men make great lovers
  • Jamaican men tell women what they want to hear
  • Jamaican men are known to have the big bamboo
  • Jamaican men have a cool and interesting culture
  • Many Jamaican men have a dark smooth chocolate complexion

Jamaican men and foreign women

Jamaican men have a natural ability to meet and allure foreign women. They are very good at telling women what they want to hear, and they further capture a woman’s heart with their love-making skills. Many foreign women who visit Jamaica, or who meet a Jamaican man in America, often fall head over heals in love with the Jamaican man, his sexy ways, and his culture, very quickly and very easily.

Dating a Jamaican man – “Must Know” #2

How do Jamaican men treat women?

There is no definitive answer to this question. I cannot say ‘all Jamaican men treat all women in “such and such a manner” because that wouldn’t be accurate. However I can give you the break down of factors that can affect how a Jamaican treats a woman.

Does he respect the woman and her culture?

Does he see her as being better than him in some way?

Does he see her as someone who he would settle down with?

Does she understand his culture and his way of thinking?

Does he think she is beautiful?

Is he just using her?

A Jamaican man can treat one woman like Gold and another woman, well….not so great; it all depends on many factors, going on in his heart, his mind, and his motivations at the time.

Dating a Jamaican man – “Must Know” #3

Jamaican man dominates in the bedroom. Why?

If you are dating a Jamaican man and he dominates in the bedroom here are 2 reasons why he may be doing this

He thinks it’s what you want

Many Jamaican men have a reputation of being great lovers. They are known to last long in the bedroom and have the right equipment to do the job. Jamaican men feel they must maintain their reputation and live up to the expectations you may have of him as a woman. So, if you are dating a Jamaican man and he is dominating you in the bedroom, it’s probably because he thinks it’s what you want.

Conditioned to be the best

There once was a time when it was a rare thing for a Jamaican man to date women who were not Jamaican. In other words the Jamaican man has been conditioned through his culture, that he should do a fantastic Job in the bedroom.  Jamaicans are conditioned from they are very young to be the best in all that they do – no exceptions in the bedroom! To a Jamaican man, doing a good Job in the bedroom, means taking the dominant role – Nothing more, nothing less. Buy the book how to date a Jamaican Man.
