Iye west African Queen, greetings, it is good to hear from you. I know most people are afraid of the word death, but it is just a word that have its translation like any other word. When you are living, you are breathing fresh air, which happens to be the breath of life, when you are not able to breath any more, then your remains, remain inactive, which means there is no more movement or activities which you can fulfill on your own. When you make the great transition it is the same as being dead, since you will also cease from breathing fresh air and become inactive, and your remains becomes a piece of trash, to be disposed of. My discussion here is that in life we do have our entrance as well as our exits, when our work on earth is done, then we must make our exit, and make way for those who are entering to enter. I do think that when African patriots, or Rastafari people if you prefer, stop breathing fresh air, and have made their exits, their remains should not be abondoned to be swarmed by flies and other insects, but instead, their remains should be disposed of with dignity, and memorial, related to their Liberation works, which they carried on while they were still breathing fresh air. It is up to the Asssemble, whether they want to Cremate, or bury the remains in the ground, but there should always be a memorial ceremony, related to the works and attitude of the Patriot who has past away. In my opinion, the great transition and death, means thecsame thing, but that is my opinion, not yours, and you are free to have and hold youR OWN opinion. About reincarnation, I just do not know how it works with the lifeless remains, of a person, but maybe you are capable of edifying me concerning that. As a cultivator, I know, that when I plant a seed in the earth, if it gets rain and Sunlight, it is likely to grow, and if nourished properly it may bring forth fruits. Please edify me if you can. The journey of life continues. 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.
Baba Ras Marcus.
