The Law was Written before a book was.

Give thanks for the day. With Love in the meditation, when it comes to “The Bible” in which I it call the Scriptures. We have to see from the start a pagan has given the book a pagan title. A Title that marked the start of European interpretation by Greeks and Romans of African Thought. Just in case ones don’t think that the words inside have been tampered with even the word Bible comes from Phoenicia and Egypt in which they were cities, “Byble” and Byblis, a female diety and grand daughter of Apollo, well known Sun-diety of Greece. You won’t find this on wikipedia and the many online sites because there is a concerted Babylonian plan to use the Scriptures as a tool of slavery. Source: W.H. Roscher in Ausfuhrliches Lexicon der Griechischen und Romischen Mythologie vol.1 pp.839-840. and “Come out of Her My People” C.J. Koster pp. 76.
When Ones make their decisions entirely from the interpretation of the Scriptures they place themselves in dangerous waters if they miss the Golden Rule ( words of the Messiah). Do unto others as you would have them do to you. With this in mind, would Slavery be something that we stand behind because the Torah allows it, or child sacrifice. We do not, and we do not because we know what is Right within where the Law was written before a book was. Using the Scriptures to be the absolute on moral issues can lead to clear hypocrisy of which many prophets within the scriptures saw contemptuous. Examples being the Prophet Isaiah and Jeremiah to Jahshua the Messiah. InI know that the Scriptures have Mighty teachings, but that comes from Jah in I telling I that is a Mighty teaching. If ones can speak to Jah, why look to strangers telling you a story about other men who talked to Jah and just accept it. If you Know Jah you know what pleases HIM and does not. Hence why I say, that if you would not want it done to you, why do it to another? This question breaks to the heart of Oneness, and makes you think for yourself about how would you feel,…When anyone asks you something before you try to recount and regurgitate verses, think about how you would be feel being in the other persons situation and use understanding. That awareness and connection is how we build together. I have been guilty of it using the Scriptures to condemn swiftly, and I thought about what Dem-mok Warcloud said about how I don’t believe in the Bible…upset me and made me think,…because I love the Scriptures, and in truth there is no doubt I pick and choose what is good and not, and some things just ponder on.. I think we all do whether we accept that or not, and if we do follow the Scriptures word for word, then I question whether that makes a good person. His Imperial Majesty said, perfectly, was, “In pondering over the life, the goodness, humanity and sacrifice of the Savior of the World, in looking at the laws which He gave us, how much should we be ashamed to call ourselves Christian people, and yet not to follow His footsteps. Had we been Christain people, had we been worthy of the name, peace would have reigned on all the face of the Earth, and would have risen to the level of the immortal angels who always glorify the Eternal God, and the peoples of the world would no longer have remained divided into hostile camps. In very truth there are no interest or reasons, however legitimate they may be, that can justify war.”
We have all fallen short and its not because of the Bible, or Scriptures, its because of our lack of interest in PEACE.
Peace and Justice is the aim and religions are supposed to help and be the tool to achieve that aim. Is it working..perhaps we need to ponder over LIFE, THE GOODNESS, and HUMANITY. And of course Sacrifice in fullness. We have approached the Subject of God collectively as a war, not realizing that it can be won without fighting, that the aim is the mission. That the tools do not need force to be used correctly, that gentleness, faith, and understanding will sew good seeds for cooperation and be pleasing to Jah and Man.


The Resurrection: Of Christ in Haile Selassie I, Africa and INI.

We are in a remarkable time, and at this moment where many in the World celebrate the Resurrection of Christ let us share the continuation of the Glory of God through the personality of Emperor Haile Selassie I Resurrected and the fulfillment of Christ, the Prophet John of Revelations,  Enoch and Ezekiel.

I will be showing the links of collective and spiritual importance of The Emperor’s impression on the nature of Resurrection.  In The King of Kings We can see the resurrection of Africa, of Freedom and Self Determination for 100′s of millions that had been deprived by colonial powers. We see publicly His Resurrection on the Throne, Where He is given a New Name; as well as Empress Menen Coronated at the same time which had never happen. He is the resurrection of the African Male Female and Child adoration through the act of the Coronation of 1930. The capital Addis Abba, meaning “New Flower” being where 72 nations where called to witness the Crowning of the King of Kings, and where Organization of  African Unity would set up as the first body to create Independent African Nations. It was erected and was to resurrect others nations from the yoke of foreign minority rule. Lets go back though, to the 30′s..

From the late 1930′s The Earth saw  the Emergence of Ethiopia upon the World Stage and the only Free African Nation Internationally lead by Emperor Haile Selassie I. Later betrayed as the League of Nations allowed the dropping of Poison Gas on the oldest Christian Nation by Roman and Italian forces member to the League. This dismemberment and crucifixion would echo as Christ and Osiris were betrayed,  and then sent to the slaughter. His Imperial Majesty would show that unlike Christ and more like King David, fighting against extreme odds is the way to leave a lasting memory and testimony to history and self in Ones faith in God. Still the results for Ethiopia and The King of Kings were the same, His Imperial Majesty would suffer burns in His Hands from the Roman Bombs, The modern nail, Chemical weapon called Mustard Gas. Ethiopia would suffer terribly.

His Imperial Majesty would start His Exile in Jerusalem in which is liken to the Death of Christ. His Majesty’s exile began on the 5/5/36 and would last until 5/5/41 exactly 5 Years . And as Christ died for the sins of the World,  The Conquering Lion of Judah, Haile Selassie the First would go to where Christ was murdered and join the Ethiopian Monks at the Holy Sepulcher. In the eyes of the World, Haile Selassie was often reported dead, and see as a “King without a Kingdom” and that He and His People would pay for the lack of moral action by the World. In the issue of the American Magazine Liberty as well as Newsweek ( couldn’t find the magazine online)  it was written that they did not know if the Emperor was alive when the article was published. Mystically that one of The Root of David on a white horse.

1934 rich royal


There in Jerusalem He and the Monks by moonlight would enact the Resurrection of Christ. In what is described as strange, The King and Ethiopian Monks would search for The Body of Christ to find HIM risen in the morning. They would enact the Resurrection, using the instruments of Ancient Egypt to ward off evil. This can be read in this article by H.V. Morton. morton_cutting

“If It’s God’s Will..Then I shall some day once again sit upon the Throne of Solomon.”  One may think these were words of Christ spoken in Jerusalem, however they are of the Conquering Lion of Judah, Haile Selassie I in 1936 in Jerusalem. Up until 1930 most people in the world neither had the ability nor desire to know about Africa, In this remarkable moment of the printing press, radio and film, for the first time ever, people were being introduced to Ethiopia through the Emperor, who stood for justice and Christ and was persecuted on the world stage. Tragically the World would pay for betraying HIM and God at once through WW2 which would be the result of lack of accountability, prejudice and appeasement by Global leaders. At the same time,  Haile Selassie I would show them by faith, courage and action that Christ and God are real.

“Even in the 20th Century, With Faith Courage and Just cause, David will still beat Goliath.” Emperor Haile Selassie Upon arriving at His Palace.

Five years later, Ethiopia Regains Her Throne and King. For the first time in history an acting Head and King of State is back in Power. His Imperial Majesty now in His Rightful Seat watches as the world goes into world war. Bringing to fruit and warning to bear for the Earth to feel, “it is Us today, it will be you tomorrow.” The League of Nations is meaningless and His Imperial Majesty starts to look at a new endeavor. Presented in 1936 to the League of Nations He expressed the need to end Superiority complexes. This will lead to the founding of the United Nations and the unified actions to rid others of colonial invasion future and past.  ” Apart from the Kingdom of the Lord there is not on this earth any nation that is superior to any other. Should it happen that a strong Government finds it may with impunity destroy a weak people, then the hour strikes for that weak people to appeal to the League of Nations to give its judgment in all freedom. God and history will remember your judgment.” HIM Haile Selassie I at the League of Nations 1936

It was remembered and a new day was announced. One in which the resurrection of a people collectively and personally are one.  This movement would spread across the Earth freeing many nations throughout Asia and Africa from European Oppression.

Excerpt from H.I.M. Haile Selassie I speech on entering Addis Ababa on May 5, 1941:

“No words of thanks spoken by human tongue are sufficient for that the good God has vouchsafed me this day to be in your midst, a thing that could be known or conceived neither by the angels of heaven nor by the hosts of earth. What I want to tell you all and to convey to you before everything, is that this day is the opening of a new era of history for a new Ethiopia: and in this new era there will begin a new task which it will be for all of us to perform. . . .People of my country Ethiopia,This is a day when Ethiopia, stretching forth her hands to God in Jubilation, presents her thanks and declares her joy to her children. This is the day in which the children of Ethiopia are liberated from the grievous yoke of the foreigner and from eternal slavery; it is the day when we are vouchsafed to be reunited, after a full five years of separation, with our beloved and longed-for people; therefore this day is honored and sanctified, and one on which there shall be held every year a great Ethiopian holiday. On this day we shall call to mind our heroes who shed their blood and shattered their bones in sacrifice, refusing to betray the strict trust passed on to them from their fathers – the freedom of the country they loved, and the honour of their Emperor and their flag. The history of Ethiopia shall be a witness for these our heroes. If we are to learn from the sufferings and agonies we have experienced in the past five years – endless to relate and to reckon in detail – the principle lesson to be drawn is that you should have inscribed in your hearts industry, unity, fellowship and love, that you may be helpers in our plans for Ethiopia. Hencefoth in the new Ethiopia we want you to be a people undivided, who have freedom and equality before the law.”

In 1958 Africa Independence day was established at the first African Independent States Conference. The Emperor in 1963 said on Africa day,  APRIL 15th  the following excerpt.

“For several years in the past, as must be remembered, a large part of the African continent was under colonial rule. In the course of that time, colonialists have stripped the Africans of their freedom and natural rights, and used their resources for the benefit and prosperity of their own country. Even today, colonial masters speak ill of Africans by exaggerating their poverty in the press. Africans are also blamed for the aid they receive. This aid cannot fill the needs of their peoples overnight. From under such humiliation, Africans rose up to safeguard their right and started to struggle to obtain their independence. This struggle began to bear fruit after World War II. The first African Independent States Conference was held in Africa in 1958. The independent states at that time were only eight. Nevertheless, the freedom fight in Africa continued with more vigour and fervour and today the number of independent states has reached 32. This is four times the size of those independent countries which participated in the Accra Conference. Last year alone Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Algeria achieved their independence and became members of the Independent African states. Although it had been duly extended at the appropriate time, we will again venture to express our congratulations to these friendly countries.”

In 1963 The Organization for African Unity was formed and head quartered in Addis Abba. By this point, His Imperial Majesty had already founded globally the United Nations. He would speak on the importance of Equal representation and the end of racism and superiority complexes. This was a resurrection of The Word, and the World. For an ideal that had not be defended and would represent the future of peace and security. Coming from an Emperor, Head of all Abrahamic Faiths and Masonry by protocol, the end of classism, injustice and superiority complexes. Once again Haile Selassie I was ahead of His Time and willing to fight against those who had stood in the way of independence. He was the first to address and arm The People of the Congo, and South African Freedom Fighters and many others.

He spoke of the identity of Us as a people today and tomorrow. A people reborn. He would continue to free people to this day. Emperor Haile Selassie I reminds us where we come from and where to go after being left in the desert, and left to die, a now born again.

“It is no less important that we know whence we came. An awareness of our past is essential to the establishment our personality and our identity as Africans. This world was not crested piecemeal. Africa was born no later and no earlier than any other geographical area on this globe. Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults. Thousands of years ago, civilizations flourished in Africa which suffer not at all by comparison with those of other continents. In those centuries, Africans were politically free and economically independent. Their social patterns were their own and their cultures truly indigenous.

The obscurity which enshrouds the centuries which elapsed beteeen those earliest days and the rediscovery of Africa is being gradually dispersed. What is certain is that during those long years Africans were born, lived and died. Men on other parts of this earth occupied themselves with their own concerns and, in their conceit, proclaimed that the world began and ended at their horizons. All unknown to them, Africa developed in its own pattern, growing in its own life and, in the Nineteenth Century, finally re-emerged into the world’s consciousness. The events of the past hundred and fifty years require no extended recitation from us. The period of colonialism into which we were plunged culminated with our continent fettered and bound; with our once proud and free peoples reduced to humiliation and slavery; with Africans terrain cross-hatched and checker – boarded by artificial and arbitrary boundaries Many of us, during those bitter years were overwhelmed in battle, and those who escaped conquest did so at the costs of desperate resistance and bloodshed. Others were sold into bondage as the price extracted by the colonialists for the ‘protection’ which they extended and the possessions of which they disposed. Africa was a physical resource to be exploited and Africans were chattels to be purchased bodily or, at best, peoples to be reduced to vasselage and lackeyhood. Africa was the market for the produce of other nations and the source of the raw materials with which their factories were fed.

Today, Africa has emerged from this dark passage, Our Armageddon is past. Africa has been reborn as a free continent and Africans have been reborn as free men. The blood that was shed and the sufferings that were endured are today Africa’s advocates for freedom and unity. Those men who refused to accept the judgement passed upon them by the colonisers, who held unswervingly through the darkest hours to a vision of an African emancipated from political, economic and spiritual domination, will be remembered and revered wherever Africans meet. Many of them never set foot on this continent. Others were born and died here. What we may utter today can add little to the heroic struggle of those who, by their example, have shown us how precious our freedom and human dignity and of how little value life is without them. Their deeds are witten in history.”

To this day Africa becomes a United Nation inside and outside the continent, finding our friends in those who share the same values of respect and integrity. Building publicly and privately and as His Imperial Majesty or Christ, we are asked to look at where ones allegiance resides, not the color of their skin. Making the defense of  Human Rights His Mantle, The message of Freedom and Liberty brought inspiration and Law that would be the highest in the land, known as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Collectively written, collectively imposed to be collectively safeguarded.  He resurrected all of us by acknowledging we are one body and that the mechanisms of peace are the organs for a healthy system. In a modern world He complimented his advances with Ancient wisdom and vision, inviting all to share and see.


Emperor Haile Selassie I, The Conquering Lion was like a ghost of the past, Returned to haunt the conscious of the world..”

On this day 59 years ago, Africa Independence Day was established right before the Western Judea Christian Easter celebrating the resurrection of Christ. Interesting.. With that known by HIM, When I See the Resurrection of the Lamb as prophecies to be in marriage and spiritual Oneness as the Conquering Lion of Judah, declared Worthy to be Praised by Merit Globally and freeing the masses through confidence in Moral Justice,.. I see the ripple in the time. I also hope that one day the Life and Times of His Imperial Majesty can rightly be taught into the international historical psyche, being the Inspiration and Guide to so many that are known to be inspirational. His influence on so many needs to noted, for even His Inspiration has created Heads of State. (Jomo Kenyatta, Kwane Nkrumah, JFK are just a few) and how will His Inspiration, His Spirit inspire you or the future generations? It can only be seen when they are shown truly of who Emperor Haile Selassie I is.

In the Rastafari Trod there is a call for Redemption, and Repatriation. This is part of Resurrection. The giving of Oneself to being the embodiment of the Highest thoughts is to become them. With the thoughts and actions of the King in Mind, the Balance of Christ and  Haile Selassie I usher in the time and place for self defense and cooperation, of Judgement and Mercy. His teachings are the Crown of God given to the people to take care of. These teachings include the importance to immediately hault Nuclear testing and weapons development. We are in a interesting time.

In closing, the so-called death of HIM will not be discussed. Because there is no evidence of  death, particularly of the Soul. In the specifics of His Majesties Physical Body there is no evidence that has been presented and its all therefore speculation. This subject of His sightings and such are for each person to consider and also whether it carries as much importance to what His Imperial Majesty did. We know HIM as the bridge of Heaven and Earth. That He is the finale evidence that We are with God and the Books are there for all to read and to theologically figure out if they have been completed by Haile Selassie I.  Most Importantly, This is about Resurrection, which is about submitting so one can be reborn. His Imperial Majesty does not replace who we were, He renews us so that we can be more than we think we could be.  On this day we give thanks for the Blessing of rising from the death and seeing the resurrection of Africa, the World and ourselves.  In this journey our rising is our surviving. We are in a time of new beginnings, let the Wisdom of the Emperor Guide us to Eternal Truth and Life. 17883955_1102810029825612_1765091131276044989_n

The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. John 12:23-25

“This then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed? We must look, first, to the Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.

And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us.
We must become bigger than we have been : more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.”

Haile Selassie I

In the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One Jah. Haile Selassie I.

Forward Ever. Give thanks for the Rising.

7 Kingsibles of what makes Rastafari unique.


There are many differences in traditions and houses of Rastafari and as we look through out the existence of the Movement  from 1930 onward, we can see a basic outline that separates the Rastafari Movement from other faiths. Without trying  to divide but to show the specifics and uniqueness of the movement, study our strengths in the identity of Rastafari as a people. These are 7 Kingsiples of what makes Rastafari, Rastafari.

First and foremost that Haile Selassie I is the Almighty in Flesh, Supreme Head Creator. Some will use the term “God” while others prefer not to use the term due to its western influence and conditioned notions. Others see HIM as “Christ” returned, such as 12 Tribes of Israel, and His Divinity is based on individual theology of who Christ is. If ones believe Christ is God, then Haile Selassie I is seen as both. Because of these different views we have several branches or Houses, that have lessons that speak on this subject specifically.

Second, We as Rastafari research and have independent thoughts concerning The Bible and Scriptures. We study many books, including those linked to the Bible such as the The Book of Thomas and the Book of Enoch. We stress the ability to read and study in a balanced and historical manner, as well as with openness to the variations and bias that has been made in renderings and translation. We are also open to prophetic revelations that can appear to anyone thru the Scriptures and shed light on the future, recent past or current times. We promote study of secular and spiritual education with a clear conscious confident that with head and heart aligned we will choose the right, and stand by it.

“Your guide should therefore be the postolic saying; study and examine

all but choose and follow the good.  Our forefathers have succeeded in passing down a free and independent people determined to safeguard its liberty by shedding its blood.  Ethiopia is the country in Africa which has kept Ge’ez and Amharic with an alphabet of its own.  We have also laid a firm foundation for the freedom, prestige and happiness of the present generation in the fields of education and development in accordance with the conditions now existing.Those who will be serving the people in future should follow this same path in endeavouring to develop their country and maintain her freedom.  This is one of the main responsibilities of teachers.” Emperor Haile Selassie I.

Third, Rastafari as a people who are called by His Name should know everything they can about Emperor Haile Selassie I. It is the revelation that is happening to this day with direct messages from the Most High. From photos to speeches, His Imperial Majesty has multi layered teachings that if allowed can present a ruling perspective of Self, African Identity, Education, Spirituality and more. When a Man takes on the study of HIM they take on the vision of HIM. With that sight ones can look from a Kingly perspective and reason on the tangible reality of the words and solutions presented by The King of Kings. He is a Living Man, and can relate and teach in this modern day with a keen awareness of what we face in these times. Books and photos, speeches and documents are still surfacing, and the collection of these Holy testimonies are part of our duty. Restoration and preservation.


Fourth, Rastafari adherents should have a historical understanding of Ethiopia. This cannot be stressed enough, this movement is based on the Crowning of the King of Kings of Ethiopia in Addis Abba, and knowledge of what lead to and followed the Sacred Emperor is relevant and crucial to knowing what and when Haile Selassie I did, who He is and why He is worthy to be praised. A constant desire to return to Ethiopia, both physically and spiritually is more than a point for pilgrimage, it is the Home of God.

Fifth, That at the Heart of this movement is Black Liberation. That importance of African Redemption and Liberation is the approach we look at everything.  How does cultural perseverance build identity with African Spiritual present and future leaders? Within Black Liberation Theology is the study and deep connection to the legacy and impacts of slavery and the paths to attain Freedom for Africa and African People. In perfect accordance, Emperor Haile Selassie I message proclaims Global Liberation from colonial forces and International Citizenship. He made the bridge for ones that are from all cultures to the call of Human Rights and that is the brother of any Liberation theology. Within this pretext, African Sovereignty and Self Determination should be the model set by Africans to inspire the World in cooperation. When we see the Red Gold and Green across the Earth stand for Justice, we as Africans should be proud that the Banner can be waved for both national and international progress. It is a duty for those who wear the red gold and green to know the reason Ethiopia is a beacon to the World, and why that is a spiritual sign from the Most High about allegiance to our collective origins as well to Judah, Head of the House of Israel. Do not be confused with present occupied territories with the Conquering Lion of Judah’s Solomonic Dynasty of Ethiopia.

Sixth is Nyabinghi Order. Though this is an International Free Salvation Mission, there are precepts set by elders of the Faith. Many Elders and leaders of the movement have been Jamaican and the importance of Jamaica in this collective awakening is divine and chosen. Elders have laid foundations and houses that should be respected and familiar to Rastafari tenants. The most crucial of which are Groundations ( Gatherings) in which we recite Psalms and Chants that have been handed down through decades and fire side reasonings. Knowledge/ experience of how to play the drum in a heart beat method is mediation time needed to grow in the movement. The Heart Beat being the Song of Life, of Collective Unity, Memorization of songs and hours of chanting renews the heart and allows the collective to humbly learn and pray to the Most High. It is a central place for Us as Rastafari to remember and pray for Right over wrong and Life over death, Good over evil. Rooted in the celebration and remembrance of the Uganda Queen Nyabinghi, the heart beat itself makes it so WHO she is passed through to Who We Are, Living Nyabinghi is to be the Living Drum. The different pace of the heart beat is accompanied by thunder drums known as pope smashers, and it is universally understood to be a ritual to Kill all Black and White downpression, thru Word Sound and Power in Prayer. It is more important to know Nyabinghi Order than to know reggae songs and artists. It has held the movement together and reveals work needed to be done in the spiritual cleansing. They are passed down, and taught word to mouth, rich in old African-Carribean- American connections.

Seventh Is Food and Basic Conduct. This is a sensitive subject, though the universally agreed food “Livity” suggests eating as healthy as possible. Not eating chemicals and processed foods, nor bleached foods. Most will not eat pork or bottom feeders, though Vegetarian “diet” has been more encouraged over the decades. Many are militant vegetarians and vegans, while others eat fish and so on. It really isn’t a line in the sand, those most will not accept a man calling himself Ras if he is a drunk or pork eater. If ones take up the Nazarite Vow of Numbers 6 then alcohol, grapes, vinegar, and meat eating is forbidden for as long as the vow is adhered to. The conduct of a Ras is based in humility, therefore gluttony, and sloth are not qualities of a spiritual being a vessel of liberation. In humility in honor of Our Creator and Ancient Heritage, many of us cover our heads. Though it is not mandated, like most faiths of the world, those who are devout or women will often have a turban of some sort. Women are encouraged to wear dresses because it is our culture as well as Biblical Law, while pants is a western wear on women. Pants on women is seen as a European Governmental disrespect pushed on all women during the industrial revolution due to men being in World War 2, forcing them to wear pants in factories. Both men and women are encouraged to dress in clothes from Africa, Robes, and if anything have a neat appearance.  Many Prophets in the scriptures were not “neat” and lived in rags, this is not forgotten, and poverty should never be a reason to discriminate. With that said, personnel hygiene and awareness of creating a good impression on behalf of Rastafari, is important. We are not hippies, and discipline is character. Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

InI hope that these Seven Kingsiples will help others understand more about Rastafari, and will encourage those who love Rastafari to absorb the culture and Itinue its legacy in Righteousness sake. InI did not mention Ganja because so many understand that plants are a gift from Jah. That suppression of medicine is criminal, not matter what kind it is. It is in no way necessary to use Ganja to adhere to Rastafari as a trod, though its history and the movement are interlinked. Defense of herbs as medicine is universal, and as a human, obvious. Our collective sacrifice can not be overstated in the fight for Cannabis legalization and has also brought us together with many.  InI look forward to building with the community and hearing thoughts and questions. With Love in the Heart we walk together, May the Most High Guide Us.

In The Name of Jah the Father, Jah the Son, Jah the Holy Spirit,  ONE JAH. Rastafari Haile Selassie I.

Royal Son of Africa.

Church/Body of the Living God, OR Church/Body of the dead word.

To relay the importance of the Church and the Body of Man, we have to ask if we truly Love Jah or love ritual. This subject is one that exists in every house of praise and defines it own understanding of self.

The Church is first the Body in which The Everlasting Soul and Ever Lasting Life dwells, with knowledge that the building is built on the Faith and Wisdom of the Soul acknowledges that the body is but a building. The Church or Body of Man is only as strong as the appreciation and respect of The Almighty that is acknowledged. With a Loving Soul the Building cannot house the works and words because they are so large and they will flood into the community with goodness. Without Loving Souls, The building is but a coffin to dead words and memories rehashed in form of ritual.

In some faiths there is room for “mysticism” and prophets, in others there is none, while in others the basis of their faith is God working now and still revealing Himself in new ways through various books and testimonies. It should go without saying that many of these interpretations have been extreme and dangerous, such as those who wish to see Armageddon.  Still the diversity in the perception of The Living God and the Living Word have left the masses at odds with religion in general.

Religion is important because it carries a wealth in theology,wisdom, history, and parables concerning the soul in the ancient and modern world. The collective battles we face over and over again: this being one of them. The status quo is what enables growth in every field. A balance between new and old even generationally is a constant project. When it comes to Spiritual and Scriptural changes the same is not only true but more combatted. We can’t help but see Religious Policies pushed on agendas based on current affairs, meaning Religions react to the times. But do they shape the times by acting out and continuing in the path of their teachers? It seems often that “what would Christ do?” is the furthest thing next to ” is this Godly”..that many ask before using Religious Power to achieve what ever goal. Then Why would they not be as open to hearing of what the Living God reveals here and now and today? Is it because they are not here and now, or fear change? If everything is changing in nature wouldn’t it be natural that The Living God has new material…If people don’t see the change of tides will they be swept away by the waves of past thinking? This is the dilemma of Churches and why Rastafari is a bridge builder and repairer.

When ones become too comfortable they become forgetful of past warnings and signs that lead to previous un-comfortability and chaos. Through out the Old Covenant ( Testament ) people are constantly rebuked for the simple adherence to ritual without thought of actually being the Living Word. Most of us call them hypocrites but its deeper than that. Arrogance and laziness are part of the original poison. It is something closer to Superiority complexes within tribes and classes that made the dismissal of dissent a norm so that the hierarchy wouldn’t be at risk or threatened. Being that was the usual in daily life, it was transferred to the personality of the Church. When I say Church, at this point it is symbolic for all religious institutions. It can be seen in daily life of parenting to how most people eat.

In a time where Monarchies are not popular, and democracy has not been fully realized for the general same reasons, that a top class does not want the change that the general citizens too, we must look to what can be done. At the heart of it is listening to the Almighty here and now, which means listening to the poor and needy as well as the Spiritual signs. At the heart of this is an ownership problem, where people think they own God, and He is their servant, who is here to answer there every complaint and call. A waiter that no one is willing to help and they feel is invisible. The lack of connection to the purpose of Life which is to Love Jah, has been turned backwards. Humanity and nature have universal laws that like Jah do not change, they are also expanding, contracting, and ever changing. Within this divine paradox is the All Encompassing Father and Mother. The mis-presecevption that God is not everywhere and in everything is what is limiting mankind. That He is with Us, and Now, looking through all living forms is the key to waking up from thinking that Jah can be isolated and divided. He is One, ONE WITH ALL. To try a piece The Creator out is to try and measure His Power which is not possible.  The Equality in which God’s Love reigns cannot be labeled. This Oneness with the Creator is what everyone needs to tap into, and then look to see if we are displaying partial Love. Partial Love concerning the poor, and for women, partial love for the Earth and animals…This will expose whether we are truly committed to love or its a one night stand. Ritual of thought, making the Earths needs not as important, lives of children, the poor, and animals, to the point where ones don’t care for themselves. This is the illogical place we have arrived to where religion is supposed to see that our connection to each other is our connection to The Most High. To listen to each other, to the Earth, to the children, is to listen to Jah.

Some would ask, How does a Rastafari Selassite who believes that a Ethiopian King is the Creator could say that He doesn’t believe class war-fare. The Answer is that a Emperor who doesn’t believe in classism is what make HIM the King of Kings. A Man that brings out the Most High out of others, having Faith that they can find the solutions because The Most High is within. He had a respect for all Life, people and faiths, knowing that all them have been brought here to fulfill their specific purpose that would align like body parts of the body. He saw everyone important, from the sick in the hospitals to orphans from Armenia. If one knows God is every where and in everything, then how can anyone say they or Haile Selassie I is not God in Flesh. Perhaps because true Oneness is bigger than the Western perspective of God. With a New Name, in a New Time, arises people and warnings that are straight from Love, from Jah. Our ability to speak directly to Jah is the ability to see when some words are dead and have no place, while others need to held high because of their self evident virtue. It is the same with ritual, some is good, full of medicine and healing, while others rituals like what most call “lunch” is a bloody slaughter in which they make their body a cemetery, eating souls rather than uplifting them. The Name Haile Selassie I is the name of all Creation, Power and Virtue of the Trinity First and ONE.  Trinitarian symbols and thought are written in all of universe as a fabric, it is another reason why Emperor Haile Selassie I is the Name of God. His appearance marks the end of religion because he fulfills it Through being the Conquering Lion of Judah and Earth’s Rightful Ruler, King of Zion. He shows us Heaven is on Earth, and where we all originated, He is the highest symbol and in the highest seat of Christianity and Judaism, and is the Returned Messiah of the Quran, He is Krishna of Hindi’s and is Wisdom incarnate likened to Buddha. He is Great Buffalo High Chief to the Native Americans, And Grand Father of Africa to OAU and Pan African Liberation Movements.  He is an internationally celebrated Prophet and reformer, 13th founding member of the UN….It goes on and on, because He was ALL to the Earth. He Gave His ALL to Show us How far we are and that God is with us, and is also human, one with all, and did His Work. Many pray to Jesus to save them, We do not pray for Haile Selassie I to save us, He prays we find the Power within to save ourselves. He calls us to save ourselves and others knowing we can because the Most High is Here and now, with Us. He is the evidence that look within, not up in the sky. That death is an illusion, and that our children and this planet is the continuation and evidence of our works. That they be nurtured and lessons past on diligently. If we let go of the lessons we forsake Guidance and wisdom, if we do not think for ourselves and choose the right, then we will forsake Jah by accepting blindly dead words lacking truth. They balance is forever in our hands, and its in the worlds interest to listen to each other and put the pieces together, then we can see how members of the Body of Jah truly exercise cooperation and collective-self determination.

I specifically didn’t choose to use Scripture versus and quotes to support my thoughts, nor words from Haile Selassie I. I want it to be a big as possible when one thinks of Oneness, after that everything is apparent. That God is Love, Let Us Be Love, is heavier and bigger than ones realize. Life exists because it loves itself, Life exists because Jah is within. From Start, from here walk from fear into the Loving arms of Jah, and seek wisdom. Its already all Jah, by surrendering, we submit to the Here and Now, which is the only place you will find Jah. It is also from here we can see without clutter of past opinions and persuasion. Confidence and Faith in the Power of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit IN ONE within and around. Haile Selassie I. Meditation.





Work to be done:Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Rastafari Movement.


Many ask why we are different than the Ethiopian Orthodox Church or why we do or don’t join the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Here are some crucial points. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church was given freedom from The Egyptian Orthodox Coptic Church By His Imperial Majesty and Alexandria in 1959. Both previous and later, The Ethiopian Orthodox Church worked against His Imperial Majesty on several matters, that the Church though very old is still in an infancy when it comes to self governance in accord to their Ethiopian Patriarch, The King of Kings. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church has created turmoil during and after The Emperor, and participated in the “DERG coup” by the issuing a pre-cursor of excluding the Emperor from daily prayers in 1974, for this sin, the Church lead the people to the God-less Red-Terror that would starve and humiliate Ethiopia and Her historical greatness. This is a major reason why the Rastafari movement has made the call that remission of sin of the Church is to return to their set mandate that Haile Selassie I is the God Head, and that songs and prayers should be continued to The Conquering Lion of Judah and the fulfilling of Ethiopians divine legacy. From the 80′s and after, we saw the infiltration of gentile christian faiths that started to change the ancient relationship of Man to God by integrating thoughts and paintings of a Gentile Jesus and a White Mother Mary. This is another massive sin. In the historical context of an unconquered people, the oldest Christian Kingdom, and House of Israel, The thought that it would allow Roman white-washed images with a foreign language to express the spirituality of African People is absurd. Further to defend any picture that depicts anyone from the Scriptures as being from Europe is treason. Why? Because the Scriptures is about Africans when ones realize that there is no middle east, that this is Africa, full of Africans as it has been for Hundreds of thousands of years. Anyone that would do this is selling out Africa. People choose their Faiths, but we didn’t choose to be African. God made it that way, for a reason. He made us as people from Her, for us to ever make her achievements that of outsiders or some romantic rendition is selling out our ancestors. We are African First, that is our State, Our Faith is personal and should not trespass against Our African foundations for collective progress. The Scriptures known as the Bible are reactions or active African historical perspectives and parables. To look to Rome for interpretations or images, is idol worship. When there is no longer a White-Jesus and Mary in a Church, then they would not be starting service by insulting ALL African People. The truth cannot be insulted and be revered at once. It is our Duty as Rastafari to visit and reason with the Orthodox Church, in order so that they may grow in their loyalty to God, Emperor and Africa. We have much to learn from each other, let us sit in true reverence of the Creator with out idols and foreign gods. May Our daily lives reflect the Oneness with Jah, and Our Words be in-tuned With Earth’s Rightful Ruler, Emperor Haile Selassie I. Jah Rastafari.


It was brought up to me that blaming the Church is unfair when it is leaders and clergy are the ones that have lead the flock. To this I agree, that the guilt is on the leadership,  sadly all of the World suffers for their decisions. Like any army or school, it is only as good as its teachers.  When describing the Church I purposely didn’t write EOTC, because it is an Orthodox Christian issue at heart. Also it is important to note, that this not an attack on Christianity, it is a call for Restoration of Divine Order. If it doesn’t happen in Ethiopia first then the rest the Abrahamic Faiths will not follow.  Thank you for reading, and for sharing your thoughts. One Jah. R.7.


Similarities/lessons of the first Christians & Modern Rastafari.

Haile Selassie I Reading1

The movement as we know it titled Rastafari in its early stages of developing has more to offer on the original Christian theology than ones may realize.  The original Christians being the apostles, Christ’s family with his brother James at the head. For the first 60 years Rome didn’t control or have a set doctrine concerning Christ. It was in that time we can compare and contrast Rastafari of today internationally and especially in Ethiopia.

Most can agree that the New Testament that most have read has been heavily influenced by Peter and Paul. One of whom had never met Christ. Let us go to that power struggle and compare and contrast. Their ideas are different from that of James.

Original Doctrine according to the book of James did not include: Virgin Birth, Christ being The Creator, or the Resurrection. These were pushed by Peter, Paul and the Popes of Rome, whom were not chosen by Christ nor were part of his blood linage. The book of James affirms Christ’s message being that of sound wisdom supported by the Torah. It was focused on communion with Judaism not distain. A completion and confirmation and yet a next step. Some could and did compare him with many others, and today ones can find remarkable similarities with Confucius, Buddha, and Krishna.

Present Day: The Rastafari Movement was inspired by the Coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie in 1930 which made ones proclaim H.I.M. as the Messiah and or The Creator. His placement on the Earth geographically, His relationship to all faiths can be seen as a confirming of Abrahamic Based Faiths. and if ones study further, Native American, Ancient Egyptian, East Indian and Buddhist faiths all have teachings that extol The Trinity Black God and King and specifics that mystically remind the viewer of HIM if they know of King Selassie I’s Life. His contribution to the evidence of Scriptural text makes the next step further enlightening.

In both situations there is a confirmation of the prior faith as there is as a competition. That the appearance of both personalities, challenges the set religions which will be at odds with the direction the new faith may take.  As The Conquering Lion of Judah Emperor Haile Selassie I is the confirmation, He is also the completion because in His Truth, as in core of Christ’s message is the end of classism, colonialism and wealth based-self aims for ego glorification and a renewed focused on the ever presence of The Most High within and around, embodied as Love in the act of kindness and consideration as is shown to us by the Father. Sure this paraphrased, still whether we look at the “spiritualism” of a man or the “revolutionary” thought behind a more just and “godly” society, both are the hallmark of a Messiah or Avatar. It is historically evident that Haile Selassie I was a prophet and did tell us the future, and in the literal meaning of the word in Hebrew of prophet he was also a “dissident” which He certainly was as well. He encompassed every level of Divinity while leaving the word still to be explored.

Emperor Haile Selassie I offers a more intense offering, one that is recent, verifiable, massive, public, filmed and photographed. Clearly prophetic and based on the dream of everlasting peace once mankind decides to end classism, racism, bigotry and malicious self interest.  His position is Supreme because He is asking Us, to save the world knowing we are endowed with the Blessings of the Creator, and it is the responsibility of the collective. That this is Wise. His teachings are beyond theology or religion, and yet Rastafari as a ” Faith” continues to lean on precursors for understanding rather than the unlimited approach His Imperial Majesty shows through innovation and creativity. This is a stark difference, because as most pray for The Creator to Save the masses, Rastafari through Haile Selassie I teachings places the Power and Responsibility on Man-Woman-kind, being endowed with the presence and instructions of the Highest Authority, Emperor Haile Selassie I From Zion’s Throne of David and as Ruler of Judah and Israel. Rastafari sights that the presence of His Imperial Majesty is the ” Saving” that the future is in our hands and based on the choices mankind makes to listen to Wisdom and awaken for themselves.

In Contrast, Early Christians, struggled to find acceptance amongst Hebrews because they found though there is importance and relevance in the Torah, a new day had come. One Major difference, similar with Rastafari today, That for Jew and Gentile, that the Faith of Christ is that of fully having faith in the Most High, and in humility and service, Being the Living Word is to know that He will deliver, guide and be pleased with His Creation based on the intentions of his heart, not with burnt offerings, or attendance at festivals. We will not be judged by our clothing but of the fabric of our commitment to The Most High, which includes being willing to be martyred. The Core message being that the Heavens have elected a specific example. This one who was anointed is called the Lamb because he gave his life and would lead the way for Lions. Both the Early Christians as well as Rastafari movement felt that this “Jew/African” teaching foremost was a message directly to them, however, through the clarity of the words of both Christ as well and HIM, it was clear that race, and nationality, doesn’t impede on the importance of Right Governance and Salvation for All including “Gentile/Europeans”.

The Rastafari core message is that His Imperial Majesty is elect of the Heavens, The Almighty in Flesh.  The distinction of the Emperor’s Ideas and actions that made HIM revolutionary to the ways of man, challenging to them to be humble, in service and ready to live eternally with dignity without attachment to ones physical being. His overall concern was not to convert, but to drive out evil concepts from the minds of men as options.  It is a universal message that is based on Mercy, and through His Teachings there is no separations between men and their Creator, no matter what faith they profess. There are distinctions and the overall consensus to describe Our divine relationship is The Power and Virtue of The Trinity and Triune. The Meaning of the Name, : Haile Selassie I.

The Name of Christ as well as the present day doctrine that both East and Western Churches have chosen to adopt, is not Hebrew, and the changing of his name and doctrine, the marginalizing and denial of his brothers inheritance, blaming the jews for his death by those who present the doctrine behind Peter and Paul, who had a lesser understanding than Mary Magdalen and his brother James. The Roman hijacking, is remarkable in blatant anti- African-Semitic theology, translations, and description of names and appearance, and so is insulting to African-Semitic Culture. These traditions passed into Ethiopia where the placement of Ethiopia’s art and artifacts lend to the historical ties and differences. One Example is that Pontus Pilot is a saint, while Jews are looked as the betrayers of Christ. His Imperial Majesty would go against His own ancient law in order to not behave in a way that is clearly swayed by “popular opinion” and that Ethiopia as declared for centuries as Judah, would submit to its King, and know He is the King of Israel.  Please keep in mind that this is before the occupation of Palestine and was based on non-partial justice.

Emperor Haile Selassie I, spoke of how ” Ethiopia has one of the oldest versions of the Bible.” noting that there teachings have a totally different root, but is still just a VERSION. That the actual teachings are understood through discipline and commitment to humanity and to the least of these. In the vastness of African Identity Rastafari has been inspired by HIM to teach the precepts of Equality, Justice, Collective Security, International Morality, Nuclear non proliferation, the end of classism, racism, respect to environment and agriculture, and respect to sovereignty and cultural protection.

One the Spiritual comparison, The relationship between God and Man has been an ancient topic that needed consensus for many societies to work. The Census that the Orthodox Christian Churches on the relationship of Christ and God was that ” His Humanity and Divinity cannot be separated.” and I would suggest neither can ours. This theology is perfectly demonstrated by His Imperial Majesties every action. So much so, it upset many including Jamaica and England when He wouldn’t deny Rastafari claims that He is Our God and King, or when He celebrated “pagan” festivals in Ethiopia with tribesmen. To the constant faith He held in the potential of Humanities Divinity and Divine plan for Peace on Earth. His Hope and Expectation that we can overcome the impossible was steady and sure and based that God is with Us, Here and Now. This is the same as Christ message that the Kingdom of Heaven is Within and that God is Here and Now, as well as Before and After. He made sure to translate both the “Bible” and the Quran in Amharic so the people could read it for themselves. Liken to Christ, HIM came to tell and teach Religions, not to be taught by them. This cannot be overstated, Haile Selassie and Christ both had the authority to reveal through acts the holy books, as well as direct them for their own improvement. Both men were not received in their own lands well, being that the Church and Temples were most concerned about education and not the exploration of a greater moral questions challenging their status quo.

When we look at how the “After-life” has been a teaching and method for control, Both the early Christians as well as Rastafari stand out for stating that God is Love and I am the evidence of The Most High’s Love Here and Now, that Heaven is within. That we do not work for the rewards of Heaven above or fear of a judgment day, for that is vain, we don’t say it won’t happen, we aren’t worried about it. We work for that which is right because its right. Without apology or fear of persecution. Justice and Universal truth, is what makes both the message of Christ and King Selassie both Spiritual and Revolutionary. Some would observe that this is inborn, and some that it is simplistic, they are correct, its common sense to one that is not chained to conformed norms that compromise to injustice. Unfortunately most people are conditioned into being subservient and become fearful standing up for the littlest of infractions let alone for the those who suffer most. Hence why the idea of Love and God are popular, and not having Love being the policy of all actions is when man complicates and dooms himself. True Love and Wisdom do not expire, and are basically the same.

Emperor Haile Selassie I in His Laws and Decades of being on the World stage as an elder statesmen showed the answer to modern problems with ancient and modern loving solutions. That it takes more than HIM, it takes Us, realizing we are One Body. Making Christ’s teachings on global platform is and was a challenge for nations to except their place in a small world.  Fruits bloomed as the United Nations, The Ethiopian World Federation, and the Organization for African Unity which are among a few. The EWF in hope to give representation to the masses of African in the Diaspora, The OAU, In the Dream of Lasting peace by and for Africans, and well as the United Nations which as a vehicle to collective security was created to do what the League of Nations refused to do. Emperor Haile Selassie I burned the League out of existence and collectively birthed a new day and plan and body. Similarly Christ had to rebuke Satan and can be liken to Mussolini offered to bribe The King of Kings who burned out the devil never selling out, setting the standards for future expectations.

Its important to note that the subject is early Christian experience and behaviors that are similar to the modern Rastafari movement, not a comparison of Christ and Haile Selassie I which though may overlap is a totally other subject.

Clear similarities, is that all established places for worship  and veneration are scattered and some-what infant stage, making it so that even an agreed doctrine has not been established. Liken to the early Christians we have both Jews and Christians that call us heretics as well as many locals of Ethiopia, while also having an massive influence on both Jews and Christians within and outside Ethiopia. The Gospel message as spread by Thomas in India, can be liken also to the huge number of African/Native Americans as well as the Caribbean population that have found Ethiopia and Christ in His Kingly Character as there spiritual home and the message being that which supports the fight against spiritual and physical suppression and oppression. Likewise it is not recognized by the majority of Christians who due to a Roman Perspective see anything African as pagan and as the Portuguese could not believe that the Christians as well as Jews had been in India for hundreds of years, still sought to religiously colonize them.  This has happen to the Ethiopian Jews by “project moses” and the subsequent treatment of Ethiopians in present day Israel.  Also, Ethiopian Christians, making outside ideas and perspectives overshadow their own cultural and historical relevance and ties to the Orthodox Church, and to this date have not had the history of Emperor Haile Selassie I and have a distaste and distrust of those who do know The Emperor in the population. Liken to the first Christians, we are looked at with intrigue, and internationally hunted down by those structures that feel threatened. Many governments have been officially told to arrest and kill anyone they suspect of being a Rastafari from Jamaica, Ethiopia, and the United States.  Further discrimination internationally for the use of Herbs that are Biblically and historically important are scapegoats to imprison people in color and specifically  at its inception in Jamaica to arrest Rastafari. It is like telling early Christians that any anointing oil or wine is an excuse to arrest, and maybe kill them.

What are the methods of hijacking and gentrifying currently and what can the Rastafari movement learn from the early Christians to avoid? I would say thus, we have not as a whole been wrapped up in the “super-natural” and that we have desire for truth and realism that can be comprehended. In this tradition, His Imperial Majesties disappearance was not a subject for early followers. Whether there was a body found or not didn’t change who He was, and that we always acknowledge He was a Man. The most curios and unusual circumstances surrounding the last days He was seen and disappearance became more of a subject in the last 17 years after several so-called funerals. Likewise the teachings of Christ were more important than His Resurrection to James and Thomas.

Liken to Roman times of Christ, many who infiltrated the early Christian Movement where basically CIA. We cannot underestimate the desire for those in power to try and identify themselves with the cause though they are enemies. We will see this in Hollywood, with “Shootas” sent to NY by the CIA, we have seen it in JA, with the setting up/ murdering reggae artists. In a more public light ones like “Snoop Lion” as well as many politicians and there wives will try and represent what they do not know.

We are in a time where this is still massive amounts of information that has not been collected about His Imperial Majesty, and in concert with what has been, there are a number of new books that will have to be included as Sacred text for the future Generations of Christians and Rastafari. This collection has yet to have a focused place of translation and ability to share on a massive scale for free. Many have worked on this endeavor and have been the only venues for many to have a selection of the many books that pertain to the Word of HIM Haile Selassie I. Salute to the LOJ Society as well Ras Sakuo of Chicago, Mr. Jim Marshall for giving years of service to this matter. Still we have to be aware of false statements and photos that are credited to the Emperor incorrectly, and separate the wheat from the chaff.

The movement would be wise to also remember that though Haile Selassie I is a Judeo-Christian Emperor, His Teachings are for all. That He was send for Gentile and Jew, Pagan and Muslim, That His Davidic Blood line, is secondary to His Word. That His actions and faith are greater than His amazing birth. It was amazing and important, but like the idea of a monarchy, Haile Selassie I Himself surpasses all the Kings that have ever been. His life is the evidence, not His Death, and even His Faith is larger than that of one denomination.

Where we go from here will be interesting, like Love itself we are going ever where..When it comes to the recognized houses of Rastafari, Our efforts in collaboration and growth are necessary on many subjects. Our destiny is with that of Africa. Our work for Repatriation and building with Africa and Africans will give the room to compare many spiritual concepts and will allow us to have knowledge to choose the Right. Our focus must be on the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, with guidance from Scriptures in order to have the Spiritual Power to make social change. Our Collective responsibility is to all of Creation, and as ambassadors of The Conquering Lion of Judah, we have a duty to where ever it is seen to stand in dissent to injustice. If we do our job properly, like the early Christians, many of us will have to fight and give our life for a cause greater than our happiness. It would also be wise to understand that His Imperial Majesties teachings are a rallying point that can invite ones to learn of why we call HIM the Most High, and similar to Thomas who made the Truth of His Love the message.

As it has been for as long as warriors and the righteous have sacrificed their lives for the collective we have honored and remembered them. This nature of the greatness of any teacher is in the followers ability to cary thru for generations in pursuit of that vision. In more ways than we can state, we follow in a line of priests, hermits, revolutionaries, soldiers, African Warriors, slaves and kings that have given there lives so that we could have the knowledge and legacy that we carry. We are the apostles, dissenters and modern day Nazarites, Our future is in our diligence and remembering The King of Kings is with Us  and Here Forever.




Emperor Haile Selassie I Coronation Fine Art Digital Expo 2016

It is a Honor and Pleasure to share the Meditations Of Our August Emperor  whom has Granted Us this Day to Celebrate the Union of Heaven and Earth in the Personality of His and Her Imperial Majesty. Presented before the Earth in 1930, Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw of Ethiopia was Crowned in a Triple Crown and Presented with the Scepter and Orb. He was pronounced Globally as the King of Kings, Root of David and Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah. It was the First time an African King and Queen had been recognized and given total authority to claim the Earth as Rightful Ruler. In the midst of colonization at its height, Emperor Haile Selassie I had the World witnessing Sovereignty from origination and entered the world stage. This would transform and elevate the Earth and World to answer a moral question. One we have yet to answer collectively, and a question that will either answer the future problems or explain the failures we accumulate while trying to avoid international human rights concerns.

While African Unity is the Crown Jewel and Mission of The Emperor, His Word speaks of the pains and concerns for all of Humanity. We still echo the need for Nuclear Proliferation and Global Citizenship and We all seek International Morality, and as His Majesty said,                The stake of each one of us is identical – life or death. We all wish to live. We all seek a world in which men are freed of the burdens of ignorance, poverty, hunger and disease. And we shall all be hard-pressed to escape the deadly rain of nuclear fall-out should catastrophe overtake us.”


                                                                       ”Waiting and Watching”

His Imperial Majesty saw the World and Time as One. That problems are solved together and made worse together. There is so much to say about the King of Kings, The Father of Fathers, and many will give witness to His Ability to Guide and Lead Us Today. His Depth is without end and His Meaning to History and Humanity has yet to be appreciated. In this Offering of Art and Feeling I hope we can go beyond words and to the Heart of Hearts. Where the Zeal meets the brush and history is being made and also remembered. Where a revolutionary African Art presents itself as modern, future and ancient culture. Rastafari Art to inspire as We are inspired, By The Most High as a Living Man, The Most High as the Fullness of Earth and All those who dwell in it. A Cosmic King who Holds Universal Truth. 86 Years ago today, was the greatest moment of Human History. One no one has or will ever live up to that day, and why HIM Haile Selassie I stands Alone. Still widely unknown, and misunderstood, yet He has ushered in Time and Space as we know it.

This piece is one that is about The Creation of Man as a Galactic Occurrence as The Lion Constellation Meets the Sirus Star System to pull together the polarities of Man and Woman, Sun and Moon, and the Portal of Above and Below into a Golden Arc of infinite relations as one of the feet stands on the Earth and another above. Center is the North Star and within the body is another portal. A Trinitarian Painting to express the Union and Formation of Heavens in the Flesh By King Alpha and Queen Omega. The personality in the middle is purposefully both man and female.

First I Thank The Most High Jah Rastafari Emperor Haile Selassie I for Giving I Everything. Year after year He sustains I and InI Family and Friends. Many of these paintings were painted in Puerto Rico and My Heart Bleeds for the Island as its lasting impression intensifies the passion for Justice and Human Rights. Their Love of Rastafari is beyond measure. I would like to thank many others who allowed in the experience of sharing these pieces, many of which will be used for future projects.  InI look forward greatly to sharing and contributing to the Global Community. This is not all the 2016 works, just some that High Lite the Emperor’s impact on this day 86 years ago. Many of these images will be cleaned up and will be available for purchase at a later day. Some Originals are still available, please inbox for info. Nov. 2nd In Albuquerque NM, InI as Well as Ras Zakarias will be showing Rastafari Fine Art and hosting a celebration in Honor of Coronation Day. 6pm-1am at 3901 Central.

 For Now and forever, Let Us Learn and Build on what His Imperial Majesty has taught, and Give thanks for Us to Bear Witness and Behold, The Conquering Lion of Judah. Jah Rastafari Haile Selassie I.


“ When I spoke at Geneva in 1936, there was no precedent for a head of state addressing the League of Nations. I am neither the first, nor will I be the last head of state to address the United Nations, but only I have addressed both the League and this Organization in this capacity. The problems which confront us today are, equally, unprecedented. They have no counterparts in human experience. Men search the pages of history for solutions, for precedents, but there are none. This, then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed? We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image. And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.”
