to me it means finding Jah through any way, spreading the knowledge to others, "each one teach one", respect for all living things and uplifting all oppressed people all over the world and chanting down babylon.
seen?...

I believe it is expected to keep ourselves holy in mind, body and spirit.  To keep learning spiritually and uplift those around us.  Keep our focus in HIM, God's spirit and joy will flow..

Give thanks Brotha Ke & Peace_Loving,
Some times when InI read the posts that get a little heated in reasoning InI heart feel heavy, So InI decided to post this question more for a little groundation than any thing else, Sometimes We lose our way just a little when there is mis-overstanding, And it is not unusual for InI n all I to drift in our personal opinions on Rasta and forget the FOUNDATIONS of OUR FAITH. So InI posted this as much for InI benifit than any thing else.Some times its good to take it back to the FOUNDATIONS to gain a little strength  Raspect, overstanding and knowledge. to reconnect the body, heart and soul both Spiritually and imotionally.
Give thanks

To InI Rasta is a profound and unashamed love for the Most I, purity of the mind, body and spirit and a raspect for all of Jah's creatures. There is no fashion to Rasta, no style, no way that a Rasta can be picked out of a crowd to InI, were all Jah's children. When a person says to InI "oh I love the way you dress, I love the rasta style its so cool!" sure it can be a little offensive but I guess we cant expect overstanding from everybody. I have missed the point.. sorry if i did. Jah bless

Give thanks Maorilion....There is no right or wrong answer or on point or off point. Being Rasta means different things to all a we but we all agree on a few things ONE GOD ONE LOVE ONE AIM ONE INITY, I guess InI just wanted to remind InI in all I that our differences make we individual and beautiful and that The AllMighty Jah made our world so colourful by giving all a we different qualities and parsonalities but placed one thing the same in all ah WE hearts LOVE OF THE ALMIGHTY JAH RASTAFARI.

Yes, we are all very different and unique but love the ONE TRUE GOD.  What a boring world if we were all the same. :-[

These differences sometimes do cause grief and ego's to come out and that is a very sad thing!  Love one another as Jah has always loved us.  We are all beautiful in HIS sight!  Bless up to those around you!

Peace

Greetings in The Name of the Most High JAH RASTAFARI
Blessed and Ivine Love, InI havent been here fi a week or so, and fulljoyed all the posts that InI had missed and the same thoughts kept running through InI  head
 "WHAT DOES BEING RASTA MEAN"
 "AS INDIVIDUALS WHAT IS OUR OVERSTANDING ON WHAT IS EXPECTED"
  """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""IS ACCEPTED"
May be it is just InI but InI feel we are becoming too complaceant and accepting of certain things that actually go against the Teachings of Rasta We appear at times too eager to soothe I's ego instead of sometimes speaking up and speaking out, InI dont mean in a Dis- RASpectful way, but in truth and light, Ramember Father God said We are our Brothers Keeper, we cannot afford to accept things that go against the trod, InI am not posting this to cause dis-harmaony or heated reasoning but as a SoulJah feel the need to bring to light these things, fi all a we to binifit and grow stronger in RasTafari,
Holy Emmanuel I King Selassie I Jah RasTafari without Apology
Peace and Love

well I feel that we should all respect others believes. but just because we RASpect others believes doesn't mean we have to believe in the same thing.. seen?
I think that's what Jah would want us to do seen?
