First, I would like to give many thanks to everyone who posted on ALL the topics in regards to differences (skin color, heritage,etc.) in RASTA. I, personally, gained so much knowledge from all the responses, it was like a door opening making me step back and look at my own truth. Questions were answered I had, whether agreeable or not, giving me guidance to make changes in my own thoughts and word sounds.
PRAISE TO RASTAFARI IN ALL OF US!
Secondly, Here's one to ponder over.... I'm interested in knowing who RASTA considers an "Elder" in these times? Is your view based on age? Knowledge? Example? (would like to leave color out of this for it's been reasoned out already) I ask this question because, of my generation, many have gone to a HIGHER calling who we considered Elders ,which shows we based somewhat on "age" meaning length of experience, so where is the next generation coming from? Is/was there a particular person you consider an Elder during your journey you would give praise to for their guidance and what did you gain from them?
No debate or negativity needed here....let's keep it interesting and POSITIVE for alot of thought could be gained personally by each of us as we someday hope to be considered "ELDERS" ourselves in our own right.
Blessed Love and Give Thanks
KEEP IT SIMPLE....KEEP IT TRUE!
