THAT THE LION IS ALSO THE LAMB....
Some will say that I am a fool for saying ONE LOVE.... that is well - all these fire burn things some make of those who chant supreme love and peace across the whole universe, all those things are irrelevant to I. In my sight, I see that there is no greater austerity that of ever-enduring love. In my sight it is the absence of love in the hearts of men that has created babylon and thus the only thing that will destroy babylon is peace and love, not war and hatred. Where does one find love, peace and righteousness in babylon? Nowhere in I sight. Only war, hatred and opression exists in babylon, so INI don't deal with them things. Black thru and thru like the universal void, INI have no need to pretend that my blackness is the key to liberation 'ca mi black regardless -So I sight that only my heart and mind being full of radiance, peace and love will carry me over. I challenge those who think that unconditional love is the easy, fool's way to make an attempt to love your enemy and love your comrades with a single, equanimous eye - to let JAH be the judge of who is lamb or goat and to simply be an ambassodor of Jah's everloving presence thru the world. Jah never burns just to burn - even when Jah burns things down to a crisp, there is fertilzation and creative love still thru and thru. Some think that hatred will overcome hatred but only love overcmes hatred and this truth is eternal as stated by the Buddha, Christ and H.I.M. altogether. So sad that slavery and the white and black opressors have duped us twice over - either we align with white colonial assimilation and become black downpressors, or we become angry demons, full of indignant, furious hatred as a result of the scars of centuries.... INI choose neither of these extremes and deal with non-duality - INI seek transcendence of all of this, unconditional love is a boat that carries us beyond the world of duality and bias and leads us straight into the heart of the single eye - the heart, mind and throne of God. INI love all and walk with the transcendent. If I fall, I will stand up and walk forward more still. INI have no time for being duped into hatred which is just another side of the shackles of babylon. So make of this thought as you will. But as you read know that I love you still (whoever you are). Only love will come over.
