WORK ON THE NEGATIVE AND MAKE IT POSITIVE - NATURE MAN



Don't worry about the LOVE AND CARING that you have in you

Don't worry about that

The LOVE AND CARING will always be comin in

You have to worry about the negative side in you

That is what you have to work on

You have to work on the negative in you and make it positive



-Nature Man
(Poet, Rastafari - New Orleans)


“I and I” is an expression to emphasize the concept of oneness.
No person is more privileged in life than another; all are considered equal.
A further meaning is that God is in all human beings; it stresses the collective unity and
experience of all individuals.




FOR YOUR CONTEMPLATION: Rastafari developed among an oppressed people who felt society had nothing to offer them except more suffering. Rastas may regard themselves as conforming to certain visions of how Africans should live, reclaiming what they see as a culture stolen from them when their ancestors were brought on slave ships to Jamaica, the movement's birthplace. The messages expounded by the Rastafari promote love and respect for all living things and emphasize the paramount importance of human dignity and self-respect. Above all else, they speak of freedom from spiritual, psychological, as well as physical slavery and oppression. In their attempts to heal the wounds inflicted upon the African peoples by the imperialist nations of the world, Rastafari continually extol the virtue and superiority of African cultures and civilization past and present.WIKI
