When a person lives he or she is functioning in the Universe, and when a person dies, he or she is still functioning in the Universe, since when you die, if your remains is cremated or burned, the steam, smoke or escence from your remains ascend up into the atmosphere and becomes a part of the functioning which goes on in the atmosphere, which also have to do with Heat Air and Water. The Ashes from cremation is either thrown on the earth or in the Sea which is also a part of this great Universe. So, even when a person is dead he or she is still a part of this great Universe, no one can escape from being a part of this great Universe whether they are dead or alive, please get that clear. There is just no escape from being a part of this great Universe, because your remains, remain the property of this great Universe even when you are dead.
Each of us have a limited time to live and walk and talk upon this earth until we are transferred to become the mulch of the earth, so that the trees can be nourished to bear fruits for the creatures of the earth to eat. We are just like the leaves which fall of the trees in the Season of Fall which becomes a part of the earth again.
On the November 2nd 1930 which was the Coronation Date of His Majesty Coronation, the people were erecting a Statute for Mnelik 11, and there were a lot of Dignitaries from the outside world, and His Majesty had to speak to the people, and in one part of his speach, he told the people, that no one who is living upon the face of this earth, can escape the pangs of Death, there are a lot of things which his Majesty said which are yet to be talked about by Rastafari people, but we really should not be afraid to speak the truth.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
