I experience JAH (oneself) as MY supreme life force and I know the attributes of myself. So I was asked and I gave MY views. People are quite free to their OWN view on this.
I do not believe something simply because others claim to believe it (BLIND FAITH), I go with MY real experiences. My real experiences are with the laws of nature, its lower forces, and the supernatural forces that bind all to the inner Universe. This constitutes MY SELF.
However, I know a few Rastas by my standards (few on the Internet) that also share my view and I know of may more who donít.
No one is denying the Importance of Hail Selassie to many especially the Inspiring purpose he served at a crucial time but I did not learn or develop my self to hold Haile Selassie as supremely important above the collective wisdom of all our ancestors.
The most ancient Rastas who developed within the laws of nature did not hold any individual above that one universal essence and my personal experiences lead me to the same.
