The Esoteric Meaning of Haile Selassie and Rastafari

Rastafarianism. Haile Selassie = “Power of the Trinity” 

The Trinity exists on all levels. God is omnipresent. Everything is divine. 

Ras = Head. Tafari = to be revered. Reverence of the head, the mind, the brain, the Most High (of our being). We create with the head, the pineal gland, the mind, the thoughts we hold, which is energy. The universe is mental. 

When we sacrifice upon the altar (the head, the mind) to the Lord, it means that we offer our flesh and ego. We rise above the temptations of the flesh as a sacrificial offering to God. We offer our burdens and all negative thoughts to the Lord, so that He may dispel them and sanctify us. The rising Kundalini corresponds to that sacrifice upon the altar (the head, the mind). The generation of the seed (below, in our reproductive organs) corresponds to our mentality (as above, so below). Consciousness develops on all levels, from the mind, to the heart, to the seed. The rising Kundalini is correlates to that sanctification of the flesh. When nurturing the mind, the generative powers are nurtured as well, and it is consciously transformed into a sexual potency that is useful for greater devotion, empathy, energy, and more. If you fill the mind with perversion, the heart and the generative powers are perverted as well, and one falls to lust and other sins. 

One can let the serpent linger unconsciously in their nether region, bidding them to act upon that swelling sexual potency and needlessly spill their seed (which is a sin, and deprives us of a huge amount of life force). To raise that serpent to the head is to heal yourself from those raging waters of desire, and to utilize the serpent as protection, much like the cobra who used its hood to protect the Buddha during his meditation. 

ROM 12:2 – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” 

Interestingly, the serpent also represents regeneration and renewal, and the conquering over the base nature, like Hermes stepping on Typhon (Satan beneath our feet) and with the inner serpent (energy) risen, it’s akin to the renewal of our mind and protection from God.

 The wise use law against law. The unwise attempt to usurp the law using knowledge, but the truly wise know that fire must be fought using fire. The wicked use sacred symbolism against the divine. There’s nothing for them to create, and so they take creation and pervert it, twisting it into something ugly, when in fact, all of creation is inherently beautiful. God does not create evil. Evil is the absence of goodness. Evil is mankind’s creation. 

We divide ourselves in the mind (which is why we must renew it and see from the heart), but regardless what you believe and no matter what religion you adhere to, we are all connected in the heart and in the eternal wisdom of that supreme intelligence we call God (Goodness over Death), Krishna, Allah (Arm, Leg, Leg, Arm, Head), Jah, etc, which is like a reverberant word that permeates all existence, like one eternal vibration and frequency that sets all things in motion. 

God is eternally vibrant, always in motion; yet His motion is perfect, thus He is always at rest. In deep meditation, one harnesses the toroidal motion of the breath, and in that constant flow and state of motion, we enter a rest and a communion with God. We remain in motion while simultaneously experiencing that deep rest. 

I’d appreciate any and all insight.

Satanism is a religion. How is the ethernal wisdom of God prevalent in both Christianity and satanism? Wake up! The wolves are not one with the sheep. A satanist is not one with a christian. They simply stand for different gods, different values, different teachings. Again: you are in the trap of deception. And please, try convince the others, not me, how is this Illuminati Congo and the goddess Kali in the background something positive and divine? You are so good in symbology, yet you ignore the very meaning of these. I’m starting to believe Lord is satan to you. And kundalini? with some quotes from the Bible? You are reducing good and evil to the point there is no substance in them. They are not abstract concepts. People do evil indeed, but there is also evil as entity. This entity, precisely, seduces many with false teachings stealing them away from the real God

I wonder if you heard any insight here, or if your mind automatically went biased when you heard or read “Kundalini”.

What are you afraid of? The message here is that we must revere the mind. The mind is a jewel. Don’t let it go to waste. Being closed minded is one way people develop biases and let it go to waste. Also, the vast majority of people don’t care about the cultivation of the mind, nor do they care for knowledge, wiadom, and understanding – especially where the sacred is concerned.

Haile Selassie is not the messiah!
He denied it on multiple occasions and pointed to toward Jesus as the messiah who you still deny.

Haile Selassie did not disappear, he was strangled in bed in 1975 after he was deposed.

Pardon me for assuming were you headed there with the HS, but I have been through this discussion with many that starts there and that is immediately where it heads.

I view it from a Christian doctrinal lens, being a Christian. Not a great example of one, but one the same.

I believe you are wrong on the ‘God is One’ and that path just leads to ruin. That God is One/all paths/etc is literally the W***e of Babylon.

I hope you find your way.

13“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7-13

Also, why are you putting words in my mouth. Certain Rastafarians believe he was an incarnation of the Messiah, but them believing that is not “evil” or negative. What’s important is that they recognize the meaning of the title, and they worship virtue, just as they worship the Spirit of God.

That’s your own prerogative. I don’t need to hear this ignorance, considering cannabis comes from the Earth and allows us to connect with it, ourselves, and God on a deeper level – naturally.

And yet, there have been many ecstacies throughout the ages. Many ecstatic ways in which various peoples, including Christians, worshipped God in a Spirit of ecstacy.

I practice entheogenics, and it’s helped me get closer to God, open my mind, and open my heart up extensively.

If it’s not for you, so be it, but don’t ignorantly say that it detracts from spiritual worship, because in many cases, it helps.

That is altered conscience, altered wisdom you get from psilocybin, cannabis or anything else. You use tricks to reach enlightment and God, instead you reach demons. You use tricks, but you are being tricked. You get to enlightment through humility and sacrifices, hard work, not tricks. You reach God by praying, mosy praying for others, changing your ways, sacrificing your ego, doing the good, fighting your weaknesses. There is no praying when you are stonned. It’s just you enjoyong the w**d and the low frequency entities masquerading as masters and giving you their false sense of freedom, peace and enlightment

“I know many Christians who smoke” – that makes perfect sense loool.

They’re clearly not Christians if they’re smoking weed. If I saw someone who was a Muslim smoking I would immediate say they’re not Muslim. But in your defence, there’s a lot of lukewarm, double minded and backsliding Christian’s out there so I don’t blame you for throwing that in, but surely you can see that it’s not right.

I agree with you that it has medicinal uses. Hence the word ‘medicinal’ and shouldn’t be smoked recreationally.

Let me ask you a few questions. When you smoke, do you feel like yourself? Do you suddenly get all this knowledge, insight, ideas and thoughts that you wouldn’t normally have while smoking? Do you do things that you wouldn’t do while smoking? Do you see the world differently during and after you smoke?

“They’re clearly not Christian if they’re smoking weed”

Your mind is so small and closed, it’s honestly humorous.

I have a friend who has an ecstatic fervor for Christ. He’s always wearing Jesus shirts, walks around evangelizing with his microphone, attends church and Bible studies with his friends, walks around with an open and calm aura, and has even preached the word while under threat of violence.

He smokes weed and he meditates. Not a real Christian? He’s more Christian than most Christians I’ve known. He’s likely more devoted than you are.

Also, he’s not superstitious, like you.

All this superstition does is limit your understanding and causes you to judge people, as well as making assumptions about people and their lives. Not very godly.

When I smoke, I feel like myself. I’ve been exploring my consciousness for a long time. My ego has died thousands of deaths. Yes, sometimes insights come in, that’s natural. Good, reflective insights regarding my life, my relationships, God, the universe, many things, but not negative thoughts. Too many years of meditation have taught me how to control my thoughts and emotions, rather than letting them control me.

If you encountered me in person, it’d be nothing but love and positive vibes. This is the internet. Let’s not compartmentalize people into boxes of our imagination.

Cannabis comes from the Earth. It doesn’t induce “evil”. It’s natural. It opens the mind and the heart and expands your perception.

If you’re afraid of exploring your consciousness and expanding your perception, you’ll never grow as a person, much less develop a deeper connection with you and God. Obviously, they’re tools. Not everyone will need them, but that doesn’t mean they’re useless. People are capable of growing in any myriad of ways. The herv simply provides us another beautiful tool to do that with.

Speaking of “tool”, that’s exactly what religion is. But many people allow religion to use them as tools, as opposed to using religion as a tool for growth.

Rather than seeing evil everywhere, try to find the beauty and good in things. Marijuana is absolutely beautiful.

I’m so sorry but you’re truly misguided. You rightly pointed out that HS never claimed to be the messiah, so why is he in such high reverence among Rastafarians?

Weed/marajuana has done so much damage among the black community and it’s a tool that Satan uses to open your mind just enough for you to see the wrongs and workings of this world, but never acknowledge the TRUE God of this world which is Jesus Christ!
It’s deception at its highest form. Smoking weed literally opens you up to demons that’s why people take drugs and falsely believe they’re one with God, but really it’s the god of this world, satan!

How many Rastafarians do you see making great, effective changes in the world? How many do you see Implementing policies, starting charities, spreading the word of God, evangelising, healing the sick, giving life changing testimonies, setting up broadcast networks, protesting outside abortion clinics, feeding the poor, set up homeless shelters… I can go on and on. I’m not talking about individuals, I’m talking about Rastafarians as a whole!

The answer is none or very few! Why? because unknowingly they’re a slave to Satan. How could you get closer to a creator that created you by smoking weed? That makes no sense!

It’s no different than the new age movement! You can talk about spirituality all day but you can’t be spiritual without the Holy Spirit.

I was once in darkness until God brought me out and into the light. I really don’t want this to come across as rude or attacking you. I really hope God shows you the truth. Please seek and you will find. I pray that you find truth! Blessings and love

My heart is already opened, thanks. Funny how you didn’t answer any of my questions relating to Rastafarians.

You’re definitely misguided because Rastafarianism is based on an off-shoot of Protestant Christianity with a bit of political consciousness and pan African. So the fact that you keep mentioning Christianity like it’s something alien is just foolish.

How can I compartmentalise a creator who created everything? Doesn’t make sense.

It doesn’t make sense, yet, that’s exactly what you’re doing. Take some time to reflect on yourself and your beliefs. God is in everyone and belongs with everyone, Christian or otherwise.

I’m not Rasta either. Like I’ve said many times here, I understand the cohesion between all major religions, and can find the beauty and truth in all of them. I can see God in them all, and I’m grateful for that.

I am sincerely sorry that your discernment does not allow you to perceive that all things are one, just as all things are derived from God’s light.

Fyi, I don’t see many kinds of large groups of people changing the world on an infrastructural level, but that doesn’t mean they’re bad people. What poor logic are you exercising? Besides, at that level, there are people from all walks of life and from many different religions and cultures, so your point is moot.

And yet, in his music, he speaks out against the occultic elite and how they hijacked the word “Illuminati”

He also explains the meaning of the word Illumin-nati, but essentially, “Illuminati Congo” translates into “Good music” or “Enlightening music”. It’s spiritual. “Congo” because of his roots.

Please don’t mention Jamaica because you clearly are not and know nothing about the culture!

Let me tell you Jamaica is a Christian country. I guess you didn’t know that there’s actually a very small number of Rastafarians and they’re looked down upon. No one wants to hire them (which I don’t agree with and think it’s discrimination) and no one actually cares too much about them in Jamaica.

They’re only known for music, food, weed and talking higher consciousness. Please don’t discourage people from going to a country that doesn’t even celebrate Rastafarians!

The article I posted contrasts the Jamaican Rasta’s with what they call Dallas Rasta’s – anyone living and practicing in America (and likely other westernized countries) will have a vastly different experience, therefore opinion, of the religion than in other countries, especially women and newcomers.
I think that because cee is unaware of the fundamentalists’ practices, cee has an unjustly inflated opinion of the overall system.

Same with the Sufis and Sunnis in certain parts of the middle east. And there’s more examples of that divide between people. The point is that we create separation due to stigma, to superstition, and most significantly, due to the ego and the egotistical mind. We’re all united, and every true devotee knows that.

Funny how it’s Christians denigrating the practice and ideals of others. It’s always orthodox Christians, or Orthodox Abrahamics, who do that. I hardly hear those from other religions criticizing other religions. It happens, but it’s much rarer.

That’s why I’m good with my relationship with Christ, but I don’t need to adhere to organized religion.

Christ is not good with his relationship with you, for sure. You won’t get to see true christians smoking weed and preach the bible in the same time and talking about kundalini or open themselves to other religions’ dogmas. That’s the truth! Now, you clearly ignore this fact and pretend christianity is the way you see it, in a very twisted, diluted way. You know better than the orthodox, what is all about, right? :)) You and your friend that you’ve mentioned are autodidact people believing you are above the examples set by the unspoiled dogma applied in the dayly life. Yes, orthodox christians are calling a lie for what it is when they detect it. 90% truth mixed with 10% lie is a lie – just as dangerous and impactful as 10 % truth – 90% lie is. You’ve dilluted almost every teaching in order to fit your own-made religion which is about yourself and your hedonistic views. You get high because you are not able to pray in soberness. You won’t give up the weed because it’s no fun without it :)) when you stand in dirt too much time, you get dirty and your dirt detectors get spoiled. Leave this dirt which new-age is. It’s just syncretism and lie.

I’ve been staying out of this, but I’d just caution anyone proclaiming to know which human beings Yeshua might or might not be “good” with. I see true believers in every stage of growth and development, including those still embroiled in some practices perhaps better left behind for their own good.
Please try to take a good, hard look at the spirit behind your accusations and remember whom it is we resemble when we hurl these things.
There is a huge difference between trying to help someone by stating truth as we see things and this. I say this in concern. Mote – log.
Cee states a load of things that are demonstrably true. Please take a deep breath and reconsider.
