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.

Why Rasta do not eat Meat

Hi guys. I feel so bad. I havent posted in so long. I still love you all, and Jah loves you all.

I want to share with you what I have been working on. ok so. I have a new book coming out soon on Rastafari. I am taking my time with it. It is about the principles and beliefs of Rastafari. I started working on another book entitled. “Rastafari Angels” This book is very special to me and I hope everyone likes it and appreciates the content. I have not started typing it yet, otherwise I would share some of it with you here.

I did want to share with you something from my book entitle Rastafari beliefs and “overstanding.”

Self

“…Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you..?.”

1 Corinthians 3:16

The Temple

bob marley side imageIn Rastafari the Body is also known as “The Temple.” It is very easy to “defile” The Temple, with many “unclean” habits, behaviors, and foods. Rasta keeps The Temple clean and Holy so that we may be deemed fit to enter Zion, in which only the “clean“are welcome.

Temple as “Holy House”

Your temple/body is also a “house of Jah.” Your body is used for prayer fasting and Jah dwells inside your holy house with you so that you can always be with him.

As Rastafari we adhere to a strict diet of “clean” fruits, vegetables, and herbs in order that we keep the temple as “holy” as possible. Rastafari also do a once a month detoxification to clean out “build up” that may be in our digestive system. As Rasta “clean” means, clean body, clean mind, and clean soul, and a clean home.

More tips to keep the mind-body soul clean

rastaman“Body Cleanliness”

  • No smoking of Babylon cigarettes; Rastafari smoke natural marijuana or natural tobacco
  • No ingesting of Babylon pharmaceuticals
  • No eating “fast food
  • No eating meat

“Mind Cleanliness”

  • No horror movies
  • No conversations of corruption (gossip)
  • No porn movies or photos

“Soul Cleanliness”

  •  Keep Jah 10 Commandments
  • Do Good unto others
  • Be the first to Apologize
  • Avoid Arguments and disagreements

Eat not of Flesh

As Rasta we believe to eat meat is to eat “dead Flesh” For some this is their way of life and no disrespect to anybody who does that. For the sake of Rastafari, and the will and power of the Almighty Jah, Rasta does not eat meat.

3 major reasons Rasta do not eat meat. 

  1. Medical history of animal unknown
  2. Meat has rot in the body before it can exit the body
  3.  Mat eating may weigh down communications with Angels and Ancestors and it weighs down the body keeping us tied to physical connections

Blessed.
