Rastafari Speaks

Re: ...and there's fire down below.

Greetings Honerable!

Life B, life is full of ups and downs. When I first read your message I thought I was on the up and up, finally on the right path but it seems I underestimate the power of temptation. Ones and ones on this forum have posted countless good messages that strengthen and encourage and make me think I realize what is wrong and what needs to be done to correct.

When health fails, teachings and all else fail. I claim to be suffering from an illness which affects the worst part of the body that can be afflicted by disease; the root …and the genitor-urinary system. It has much to do with procreation and with diet and my cravings. I cannot speak openly about it for fear of offending someone. My body fights against me. I cannot ignore my body. After long suffering, when carnality seems like the only relief I feel attached to what I know is wrong action.

Ones on this forum have been contemplating to chase away all the ‘non-Rasta.’ Perhaps I will be among those identified as such and someone will confront me and ask me to leave. Then I may have to read the posts quietly and not respond to even what I think is an issue burning in me. I hoped that being in Afrika meant I had some useful first hand information, but perhaps all I do is complain or make a lot of noise when I think I understand.

Until such time!...
