I's Open

Irie, Irie

Well said for true... and no need to apologize.

In all me years of reasoning and listening and meditations, one of the most valuable lessons me learn is that no 'group' or 'movement' can organize without Wisdom as them guide. And is true that not everyone in the 'group' is of the same Awareness, the same consciousness. You see?

And this be where the issue of 'judgement' comes in. IanI must know right from wrong in order to reach Awareness and Wisdom. And IanI must be able to look at any given situation and determine it's correctness or it's folly. And so where does this determination come from? If me look upon the oppression of the Queen and say, "That no right!" Where has that Knowledge come from? Me know in me very inner depths that it no 'right' to downpress any Life... but to some, them no see that Fullness. Some a them just keep stuck pon one aspect of a situation and don't bother to look no further. Them say, "Glory be to God! Me see the Light!" But them only see the very distant pin-point of Light and never trod no further.

Many have attempted to drag and pull those of little consciousness (kicking and screaming at times!) into a greater Awareness. Wise words have been written and spoken in speeches and recorded on tape in the great hope of making others see. And often those wise words have been mis-taken and mis-used, clung to in their mis-taken-ness, leading 'groups' and 'organizations' into despair! More trivial issues become magnified and the Truth gets buried in the rubble. This has become obvious, to those that look, in the Babylonian 'civilization'. Vanity and greed get the focus, while Awareness and Wisdom get forgotten.

While I whole Heart-ily agree that knowledge of peoples history is an important thing... me seen that even those without this education can reach great Wisdom. Because consciousness comes from the Heart/Mind and one must have the drive to seek it. And continue to seek it in all it's Fullness. Not just be content to listen to others and 'follow', but to realize that the Almighty has given all IanI this Wisdome and Knowledge, right here in the Heart/Mind.

So, while I can look for right from wrong and determine the Truth, I must never place no 'judgement' upon those that have not achieved a Higher Awareness. If them wish to seek it and grow, then IanI can offer what Life has come to teach. But if them no care and simply wish to live them life blindly or to simply 'follow' without looking, then them Life will bring them their just reward. IanI cannot force no consciousness upon them.

Them that know Rastafari are the One that ever-looking, ever-living, ever-forwarding. And even if I no know you history, Jah give IanI that Looking, the Awareness to realize Truth from falseness, and forward pon the road of Love that leads to justice, harmony, balance, overstanding, honesty, integrity, equality, co-operation and I-nity! And this is how me know a Rasta when me meet One, and IanI I-nite in all the Joy of Living!

Me know suffering when me see it... me know oppression when me see it... me know persecution when me see it... me know subjugation when me see it. But is only because me Looking that me see! So, yes I, Akinkawon! IanI MUST LOOK! Throw off them blinders and seek Jah Guidance and all IanI Bredren and Sistren I-nite in Awareness, with Joy and Harmony. Rastafari forward in I-nity because of Love and Joy. When IanI have open I's, then I-nity is assured.
