HIM HAILE SELASSIE I SPEAKS ON SPRITUARITY
"The temple of the most high begins with the human body,
which houses our life, essence of our existence.
Africans are in bondage today
because they approach spirituality through Religion provided by foreign invaders
We must stop confusing religion and spirituality.
Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans
which were supposed to help people grow spiritually.
Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political,
divisive and a tool for power struggle.
Spirituality is not theology or ideology.
It is simple a way of life, pure and original as was given by the most high.
Spirituality is a network linking us to the most high, the universe and each other.
As the essence of our existence it embodies our culture, true identity, nationhood and destiny.
A people without a nation they can really call their own is a people without a soul.
Africa is our nation and is in spiritual and physical bondage
because her leaders are turning to outside forces for solutions to African problems when everything Africa needs is within her.
When African righteous people come together, the world will come together.
This is our divine destiny."
