Jah Blue Waterfront Rastaman Long Bay Portland Jamaica
Jah Blue is a waterfront Rastaman from Long Bay Portland Jamaica. He remembers a time when the seas and rivers on his beautiful island home were clear as crystal and teeming with fish. Wildlife was abundant and coconuts were the staff of life. It is a different story today.
Rastaseed is a blog about Ras Tafari, a way of life born in the nineteen thirties that celebrates the living not the dead, clean living and much more. It is also about His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie the First, Jamaica and Reggae music. Precious information about growing your own organic food, saving original seed and the healing power of medicinal plants.
Natures bounty is something humans will have to work with and protect wholeheartedly if any wild places are to remain. The population is increasing rapidly now and the demands for resources growing at an alarming rate. Aware and sensitive humans are taking to growing food for themselves to avoid toxic chemicals on and in their food. It is unfortunate that the incidence of unwell people presenting with diseases is rising and this is due to the dead fruits and vegetables sold as food. These types of foods need to be harvested and eaten immediately to get nutrition from them. A lot of modern industrial food grown and distributed by the supermarkets is very old by the time it is eaten. Most people can tell by the taste of it, but it will still look alright after weeks in cold storage or on the shelf.
Rasta Seed is also about the preservation of our rights to be human and the freedom to grow and share your own plants, herbs and seeds. The freedom to breath clean air and get access to clean water and shelter. We all have the right to live off the grid. Corporations don’t like this. It does not fit the business model of continuous growth into new markets. Sick people provide good revenue. In an increasingly Nationalistic and Corporate environment worldwide, science and business models are being applied to everything in nature and biodiversity is being threatened more severely than ever.
We have basic human rights and they are being eroded. They will have to be rigorously defended from the corporate machine. Knowledge is power and what we buy and support will bring change. At the end of the day Jah is in control. We have the power within us to spread his love and light in everything we do.
Rastaseed is everywhere and at this time in human evolution we can tap into this higher vibration to experience this energy for ourselves. Wisdom, peace and love are at the core of Rasta, and it embraces our true individuality. Many interpret this as a free for all so to speak where righteousness is not the grounding. Wolves in sheep’s clothing exist and the cultivation of a strong intuition and sense of self is required to weed out this lower vibration and the vexation to the soul it can bring. Rastaseed writes about the garden and learning to grow our own pure food, metaphysics and the wonder of the universe and its’ magical mathematical rules that link us all. Reggae music, and the gift that music gives us all to heal and experience joy. Natural medicines and herbology, delving into the ancient wisdom of the indigenous peoples preventative herbal medicine and healing techniques. Rastafarian way of life and symbology and Emperor Haile Selassie, King of Kings, Lord of Lords and earth’s rightful ruler. Tuning into a higher vibration is a wondrous thing however there are still many trapped in the old and decaying rot so shedding some light on important issues that are critical for humanity at this time. Jah lives in us all and humility and one love can guide us to a wiser and smarter world living in harmony with the natural world.
Regardless of your religious beliefs, spiritual awareness or lack of in this time, any deep thinking individual would have to be surprised and interested to read something of the livity that is Rastafari.
All any of us can do in this continuing evolution is work towards these great ideals and look hard at where we can utilise these principles into our lives to achieve balance, harmony, one love, hope and union.
To the most I Jah Ras Tafari King of Kings Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
