InI means "me / i" or "we".

The I means "you" in plural or singular.

As you may have heard some people say also "Haile Selassie ----> I" <----
"Haile Selassie I"

When i think of the word "I" i think of the whole world as one, the love, the humanity and the spirituality, as one.

Bless up!

InI is the connection between me and Jah..
Jah is within every one so..
I= me
and
I= the inner spirit that connects you to Jah
seen?

I'm pretty new myself, so forgive me for my lack of knowledge.

Is InI a substitute for the word "I", with a lot more meaning?

Something simple like

"I was thinking. . "

would be. .

"InI was thinking. . "

Sorry, if this offends anyone.  Just trying to learn.

yes and no dylan its not directly a substitute for I but when saying InI you are referring to yourself as equal/connected with Jah hence why Ras also refer to each other as I or InI because we are all equal and from Jah so there is no divide as in me and you.

I Personally use

Iman , which means ias a person,

same as I but with more meaning.

InI is connection with you as a personal and JAH, u have got to learn the differece between when to use 'I/Iman' and InI

different meaning therefore u put it in different places

thanks for  clearing that up for me.  InI (still a bit odd for me) think that I am well on my way to learning the Rasta way.
