Greetings and Blessed Love to One and All, in the name of YAH, Ras Tafari, Emperor Haile Selassie I, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Defender of the Faith and Light of the world, Elect of Himself, the Conquering Lion from the Tribe of Yahuda, living from that day till this day through the Royal Lineage of King David and King Solomon. We also greet InI in the name of Her Majesty Empress Menen Asfaw, Queen Omega likewise from the lineage of King Solomon ánd Prophet Muhammad. We greet all Mansions of Rastafari, individual Rastafari and sympathisants, ass well as all other Ones who don't know about Rastafari but have made the way through the jungle, ToZion.
We would like to welcome everyone from all the corners of Mother Earth, no matter what faith one might have or from what ethnic group one might come. The information presented here can be of interest to most people, ass many aspects and expressions of Life and its societies will be presented here. Rastafari have a well known saying which is “One Love, One Heart, One Aim, One Destiny...” meaning we have a shared reality and responsibility, that should be deeply realized so we can work and live together in and for peace. At the moment there is so much division in the world without overstanding and respect for each other, that harmonious living is hard to achieve, so by presenting different aspects of life we think that this could be beneficial in overall overstanding.
The foundation of this Isite is built on the teachings and revelation of Rastafari and other African sources... That saying, one of the things we would like to achieve with this Isite, is to give a better overstanding about the Livity of Rastafari, because outside and sometimes even inside of the Rastafari community little is known about InI. All aspects within Rastafari will be presented here together with other African based knowledge ass well as secular information, something His Majesty advocated for...
We know that it is important to raspect people’s opinions, ideas and faith and that we have to live together side by side in peace despite these differences, and because we know that there is so much useful, beneficial, uplifting information in the world that could assist us as a people to move forward, we will present many of these different aspects of the world to give us a greater and deeper overstanding about Life, more awareness…what this site is mainly about, creating an opportunity for more awareness, which should enhance overall overstanding, tolerance, acceptance, forgiveness, clear mindedness, more love and peace (among other things).
Here is a brief overview of what we can expect from this I-site…
As mentioned Emperor Haile Selassie I has a central role here because for many Rastafari His Imperial Majesty is IYAH, King and Savior, and without H.I.M. (His Imperial Majesty) this initiative or any other initiative that has come out of Rastafari livity would not be possible. For one thing, the world has Reggae thanks to H.I.M. which has been a great source of Love, Peace, Unity, Knowledge, Strength, Pleasure, Fun, Self Reliance, Self Confidence, Healthy Living, Righteousness, Knowledge about African Culture, overall Raspect, divine Inspiration, Praising of YAH, and more positive teachings. This should not be underestimated. Reggae has been an important balancing factor for Positivity and Upliftment in a world dominated by negative and destructive forces. This should be deeply Raspected and the reason for this (Ras Tafari, Emperor Haile Selassie I, the conquering Lion) deserves some recognition. So we will use this opportunity to share the glory of H.I.M. and give Praises to the King and give Thanks for making everything possible. We know that Through His Majesty we can reach our final goal which is Heaven or Zion on Earth, a transformed Earth where we can live together as One without war and crime and other in compassionate behavior.
Not only can we learn about His Majesty, also Her Majesty and all the other aspects within Rastafari Livity will be presented.
There was a time when Africa was the center of light in this world, and Africans were raspected for their knowledge and wisdom. Africans traveled all across the world leaving an imprint by influencing many different cultures with InI knowledge and DNA. This has been down pressed for more than 2500 years and broken down to what it is today. Most people have totally forgotten about this and the importance to know of this Incient heritage. Our aim is to assist in the restoration of this awareness which is greatly needed if we want to move forward and fulfill the prophecies and establish Zion on Earth.
This subject is a very sensitive one, as everything that has to do with it has wide implications and has a key role in how we see and experience the world we live in. The Bible tells us about the redemption of the Ysraylites in the last days after a long period of suffering, hardships and not knowing who we were (historically), being scattered all over the world, Hidden…and in bondage (mentally or physically). This I-site will assist in the process of regaining this lost heritage and breaking the shackles that have kept Ysrayl tied down.
There are many passages in the Bible giving indications where the Ysraylites come from, how they physically looked in the past and what they were chosen to do, which is among other things to be like a Sign pointing in the right direction for other nations and people.
Today it is widely acknowledged that the modern day Jews are these people. Without going in to the discussion if this true or not, we can say it’s not ónly the Jews who are descendants from the Tribes of Ysrayl.
At the moment most people who get sick rely on the pharmaceutical industry and modern health care through hospitals and doctors for help which sells us all kinds of expensive medicines that (a lot of the time) doesn’t cure anything and can even make things worse because of the side effects. There are some very beneficial medicines that help people. But we must keep in mind that the pharmaceutical industry is also about making money (about 800 billion every year). We don’t want to be in a position where we are mostly dependent on that part of the health industry, as they keep denying the benefits of better, cheaper and natural healthcare and will hardly ever advise people in those areas. We say there should be balance between the two and will assist by making people more aware of alternative choices for healthcare.
We provide information about the power of healing Herbs that will give people a better overstanding of its many wonderful properties. Herbs cure people from all kinds of illnesses or at least have great benefits in ALL diseases.
The mother of all Herbs we say is Kaneh Bosm Sativa, Ganjah, or… The Healing Of The Nations. This plant is mentioned in the Ible exodus 30:22, translated to Calamus in the KJV and is very powerful and can be used in many different ways. For many Rastafari it is a holy sacrament something to be taken serious and not only used for pleasure, we go into the full depth of this plant.
The things we eat and drink have a lot of influence on the quality of our Life, physically, mentally and spiritually... Most people have forgotten or have been neglecting this, so we will remind and assist in returning to a healthy Life style. We will provide Healthy Ital, Raw, Vegan, Vegetarian and Alkaline recipes which is a big part of the Rastafari Livity and healthy living.
Reggae is very important for Rastafari as Rastafari is for Reggae, the two are linked together and have elevated each other to the heights of today.
Reggae is truly unique, it is the only form of music which main focus is to really try and make a change in this world, teaching us about Life, calling for a revolution, having one mission, one aim, working separately as One for the same cause.
There are many songs in other music genres that have positive and uplifting messages, so we have made a collection of artists and songs in different genres that have some kind of teaching or positive message. There are some nice uplifting singers, but compared to Reggae artists they are mostly far behind. This is regretful because there are a many artists who have a lot more influence on mainstream people compared to Reggae singers. Music has so much power to uplift the people, so our aim is to emphasis on positive and uplifting lyrics for the people to listen to and to inspire other musicians to make more uplifting music (lyrically).
Repatriation is another main focus of this I-site and Rastafari, as this is an important prophecy in the Bible, that Ysrayl would one day (in the last days) return to the promised land where Zion and New Yerusalem await in the Kingdom of YAH. Repatriation is far away in the minds of most people. But the changing times we live in will make it a more logical and a natural event to take place through worldly circumstances that will force or motivate people to move, and not really go out of nostalgic reasons, it might be necessary to survive the coming events. For this reason we don’t only encourage Ysraylites to repatriate where they originally came from, but anyone who is not living in their home country, and who would like to go back there at some point in their lives. Many people reside in countries for financial/comfort reasons, when this becomes obsolete or even a threat we know many people would prefer to be in their Home country. We will bring more awareness in this matter.
We are living in a time where Life is at a turning point. Things are changing rapidly and it is hard to keep up with all the developments. The technological and spiritual age we are living in has made it possible for our consciousness to grow on many different levels and areas. Spiritual age in the sense that the time is right on a Iniversal level to grow naturally in this area, having faith that everything goes according a certain plan, YAH’s plan, LIFE’s plan. There has always been a knowing by most cultures that Life as we know it (not life entirely) would come to an end and change dramatically at some point in some way. Different cultures have different names and explanations for this time. We are not saying that we definitely know big changes will happen now or in a couple of years, just to be prepared when it does...Whatever happens it is good to be prepared for every outcome, which includes a sudden and extra ordinary change.
In the Current Issues page we can learn about and keep track of subjects that can have direct influence in our Life and could give us a better view of what is happening in the world today.
This website will have a very broad base, exploring the many different aspects of Life not limiting our self in any kind of way. We Raspect and welcome all other cultures and philosophies. We overstand that the Rastafari livity is not the only way for upliftment, this can be found in all corners of the world and in many different forms. We will show these other aspects of Life that don’t directly involve Rastafari but have or could have some positive influence in our journey ToZion. The aim is to create an environment where we can learn from one another and put our differences aside, because there will always be differences.
We will practice Non Judgment and keep an open mind for alternative reasoning. Not judging is one of the most important things we can do in creating harmony, but also reasonably hard. By bringing different elements of Life together that are not directly related we can practice non judgment, and then have the possibility to learn from one another instead of criticizing and bringing each other down.
In addition to this I-site the ToZion Foundation will assist in the process of what we are trying to achieve with this initiative. It’s main goal, creating more awareness on all levels of Life and with this heightened awareness start to change the way we live with each other and Mother Earth, inspiring others to do the same, having Zion as our final destination and assisting as much as possible people to reach there…
With the Foundation we have a better opportunity to put these words into action.
We will also share information about other foundations that are beneficial or interesting.
Something else that is still in the process of being built is an online community where we can come together, reason and share things...
At the Marketplace we would like to give people a chance to promote I-self, ranging from handcrafts to music or small companies that fit in or support what we are trying to achieve. People can also ask for assistance if you have got a good idea or would like to start some business of any kind and need some support, ones might present there ideas here in search of some kind support. We know banks won’t be of any assistance for most of us, so maybe in this way there can still be an opportunity. It will be similar to something as crowd funding.
The Message Board is place where we send messages to people individually or to groups of people, and share messages from other people that might be of interest.
In the Links area there is a list of websites that we use as a source or are in support of what is being said here, and promote websites that serve a common goal.
In the Donations area there is the opportunity for people to be a part of speeding up the process of collective security through sharing and caring. Things are developing kind of slow at the moment and this has mainly to do with lack of funds. So if ones have a feeling this work is Important and needs be become more widely known, Feel free to make a donation or if not possible, maybe pass this I-site forward to someone who can…Give Thanks bless
We use a large amount of other peoples work to provide information. The Youtube videos we share often break with copy rights, especially in the music section where we have made playlists of musicians material that are uploaded by different people. Our thoughts about this is that we use this material for educational uses and awareness, also we try and support any ones material by providing links to pages where people can buy the material we are using and do as much ass we can to promote an artist. Our aim is to try and generate more sales through the awareness that we try create within ones watching and listening and not to take it for granted by showing some support if possible. Also anyone who is the original owner of certain material and is really against InI objectives or methods, can reach out to InI and make it clear. Then we can make some adjustments, maybe by using less material. We do hereby ask for permission to the ones of who we are sharing their work, and to make it clear that it is for a good cause and that we are not involved in commercial activities, we don't have advertisements on this website and that the funds we possibly do raise through donations go to the benefit of creating more Love, Inity and awareness on a global level and that this possibly also has some worth for the I too...we give thanks for letting InI share the works, Blessed Love.
People Might read some words that they are not familiar with and this might cause some confusion, so here is a short explanation. First of all we use the name YAH instead of God or Jah. YHWH (YAHWEH) is the original translation from the Hebrew name (יהוה) in the old scriptures; also shortened to YAH in the Ible several times. We will be using that shortened version, YAH… (instead of Jah or God) and Yahshua (instead of jesus). We can still pronounce the letter Y as a J, if that feels more comfortable (because which letter was used to make the J sound before there was a J?) Y can be pronounced in different ways... there was never a letter J in the english alphabet until somewhere around 1700 ad. So words like Jehova, Jah, Jesus, Jew, Jacob, Jerusalem, were spelled differently before that time (YAH, Yahshua, Yahuda, Yacob, Yerusalem), but the pronunciation can be the same. The name YAHWEH was considered to be too Holy to pronounce by orthodox Jews, so they changed the name into Elohim, Adonai, Lord or God, and this was eventually adopted by the rest of the world. But the Ible has several verses about the Importance of using the name YAHWEH ánd Yahshua, so we will go Forward to this originality, forward to InI roots...
For the Same reason we have chosen to use Ysrayl instead of Israel as this is the more original name, meaning One who wrestles with YAH (and overcomes).
Rastafari often use InI (I&I) as a replacement for me, you, he, she, we, us, our, him, her, them and is meant to show the link InI have with One another. InI means ONE, You, I, and YAH in one. Rastafari is very much about this oneness and togetherness, no matter what color, race or personal believes, InI are One and should therefore show compassion and overstanding to one another. The use of InI is one way of bringing this Link to InI awareness as it breaks down all divisions. In Rastafari language, called Iyahric, the I is used in many words like IstorIy instead of his-story or Ifrica=africa, Inite=unite, Ible=Bible, Iveryone=everyone, Incient=ancient, Iportant=important,
Ivolution=revolution, Iditation=meditation, Ital=vital etc...We also use words like overstand instead of under-stand, Raspect instead of respect, forward instead of backward, Livication for (dead)ication and no “con” words like contact=Itact, consideration=Isideration, consciousness=Isiounsness, connect=Inect, construct=Istruct and so on... This is done to give a positive twist to words that have a negative sound to it. We used to be consequent (Isequent) in writing like this, always using InI for instance, but most people didn’t overstand it and caused some irritation, so most of how we write is written is in plain English, so we can reach a broader public. Here and there we have kept some words like Overstand and Raspect and still use InI some times, but use We in most cases, also because His Majesty also always wrote in a We form... and now you or I also know what that means.
When checking out the website on a mobile device, it might be a little hard to navigate because we don't have a mobile version yet, even though it is Ok once we get to know it more.
For instance the Youtube playlists don't have a forward button but if we click on the top right where the three stripes are we come into the playlist and can choose a video from there, or move to the next video by dragging the position indicator to the end of the video...
By double clicking anywhere on the website the view gets enlarged...
By tilting the phone sideways, text can be read without the need of scrolling...
Although this I-site is over heavy I-struction (not con-struction) and far from finished there is already enough for InI to explore. For the moment we are more focused more on looking for and presenting Rastafari Teachings, this will become extended through time and experience by reasoning with ones who have deeper overstanding about the different subjects. So the I-site is always progressing, that's why we put the date of our last update at the end of each writing, so people can follow the progress of our explanation ass we are also on a journey of growth. So please forgive InI if things are not perfect from the beginning, but know that is what we strive for, perfection...and is going to take some time to achieve. Progress has been slow over the past years because of certain reasons, but be patient, this will change when the time and circumstances are right. We had higher expectations about the progress we would make, but YAH has humbled InI by showing that We don’t decide when things should be working out and just need to be patient.
When we are in a satisfactorily state when it comes to the presentation of Rastafari we will move to the other areas and work out the subjects like Africa, Ysrayl, Healthcare and so on. For these other subjects we have already collected a large amount of videos and written some of the basics about the aspects, these subjects will be explained in more detail after the Rastafari part is more or less finished.
Please take time to explore and return from time to time to check out the progress.
May Peace, Love, and Prosperity be with InI and YAH be InI Guide in this distracting world.
Blessed Love, Rastafari
