"i know most rastas don't don't believe in death"

Its not a case of beleiving in death or not, it is the babylon mindstates and concepts that we have when it comes to such things.

Life and Death are cycles to the Rastaman.  But I & I livicate, the Body is just a vessel to take the spirit through this physical manifestation.

Death is the wages of sin, Life is given to the righteous.

" i hav no word instead of what Babylon calls a life time can any ras help us out"

Creation.

"What babylon calls life"

Let babylon be babylon, the Zion mindstate perpetuates in the Rastaman Heart, in his word sound and power. 

First ask yourself what is "life"

If you seek you shall find

JAHGuidance

Who knows what happens after death ? So why should we discuss what we do not know ? Rather concentrate I lives on living (life=alive=living=what I am now = got nothing at all to do with death) than to talk about something I know nothing of.

You only have this life to do what you got to do (the right thing) so think about death "when you get there" (what you will never do because you cant die). Right now we are alive so lets do something for life.

I know that is kinda confusing what I write but, think about it, use your knowledge and you will get to what I am saying. A little help....every living thing has a spirit that death can not touch. It is GOD given. And if GOD is life.....

Like Prophet said,
We have no control over what happens after we die.
We should focus on our life and how we live it.

Besides it seems to me most ideas of heaven and hell were
conceived to control peoples behavior through fear and reward.
I prefer to make the most of the time I have here.
If I lived my life badly and then seek forgiveness at the last moment that
hardly seems worth reward.
If I do go somewhere nice after I'd rather have earned it like I have what I
gained in this life. Then I'd feel worthy of it.

When you die, i.e. your consciousness/lifeforce (or soul ;)) leaves the body then that person is dead
in terms of this dimension. It don't mean that the consciousness is dead/obliterated, but that it is no longer
manifest within this reality!

As to where the consciousness goes on leaving the carcass, no one in this dimension knows.   
However if we accept the earth to be approximately 4billion years old, and the universe is suppose to be 13-17
billion years old, then I ask myself where was I before I was born? Again no one knows where my consciousness
was residing until the time of my manifestation (via the womb).
Therefore I have to assume that when the time comes and I leave this reality
I may probably go back to whence I came, from the great infinity.

But who knows!!!

To de yout name One Love:


I read your response;  :)

My reply to you is to quote the old Jamaican adage; which is; 'Hog seh to momma, how you mout so long'? Momma seh to pickney 'a grow you ah grow but you will know'?

(One day a young Hog watched his mother foraging for food and said to her momma, 'how is it your mouth (snout) so long'? the Sow simply turned round to her youngster and just said 'you are young, but you will know')!! English version for those not familiar with patios ::)...

So as you say,, enjoy life as much as you can, but also try to learn a thing or two on the way....

So true,
When we stop growing physically, our bodies begin
to decline.
The same is true emotionally, intellectually and spiritually
When we stop learning and growing in these areas
we also begin to decline.
The more we seek knowledge, the more agile our mind is
The more we seek understanding, the more grounded and
stable our spirit and emotions become.
It's all our choice.
We have the ability to do these things
It's up to us if we chose to use them or let them go to waste.
For myself, I love learning.
It's a great joy to me and I don't want to take the ability for
granted or I might lose it.

Bless
