Rastas, Love and Marriage

Rastafari Reasoning

On the meaning of Rastafari:

Rasta man just lives and loves. Rasta livity is rooted in natural philosophy. That is why it is said that Rastafari is a natural one.

That is to say that there is no one accepted way in Rastafari. As long as one is natural and pure in his conception and action…he is a Rasta man.

Rastafari is a vibration one attains from deep and long meditations. In Rastafari one comes to discover the gentle footpaths of nature for oneself. It is a philosophy which arises from the conviction of your own soul based on reason and intuition.

Rastafari is a rational methodology that is applied in the task of discovering eternal truths. It is a way to view life, rationalize events and react to the system. Although it emphasizes communal living, at the same time it is highly individualistic because each Ras and Empress must embark on this discovery journey for the truth alone.

Despite the teachings and advice of all the elders and brethren around, the decision of each Rasta man or woman on what is right or wrong, is a highly personal thing. Because one cannot decieve himself eventhough he deceives others by seeking to comport with Othordoxy. A Rastaman or woman is not afraid of the truth as he or she knows and truly understands it! Thus the Rasta experience is a journey to the house of truth.

When this journey is undertaken with sincerity, it is well possible that certain immutable truths of life may become obvious to one. Just like logic, geometry, astronomy, architecture, arts, music and mathematics are known to contain certain inexorable precepts that are constant and sacred in nature.

On the meaning of Love and Marriage:

When one views the institution of marriage, it is realized that its rites and other solemnities are inventions of society. But the love that endures between a man and a woman is prior and superior to any subsequent societal rites of “marital” endorsement.

One Ras may differ from another in this perspective but InI would say that developing a great loving relationship takes work. Love blossoms with care and dies with neglect. Thus building a solid relationship based on true love ought to be the preoccupation of true lovers marriage or no marriage.

Matrimony was created as a superstructure towering over natural love. It will always remain a man made rite, subject to the changing attitudes of an evolving society.

The ones that agree with and accept this super structure do so for various reasons chief of which include a need for social legitimacy and legal recognition. That may be all well and good for the long term strategy of those ones.

Yet, InI must not lose focus of the fact that, one social institution (called marriage) should not, and cannot over-ride the purity, the sheer importance of sincere love between a man and a woman.

Ah so me sight it, I.

One Love

  1. I met a guy a few months ago that says he is s Rasta. I fell head over heels in love with him when I met him..He is reluctant to talk to me about being a rasta therefore I just do my own research. Is there a reason why he will not discuss this with me?

    1. If a man will not open his life to you and shares his beliefs with you he’s not your man. Why would you want to be with anyone who doesn’t want share with you one of the biggest apects of what makes him tick. Maybe he’s a pasta and not a rasta. There are many pastas masquerading as rasta.

  2. hello as to this web sight great as to all and to all races who love rasta men ok and white women with hair long and dread locks and straight who like black men this way one love peace health body and mind Lesley mccalla

  3. In my opinion, I would not trust someone that would not discuss his faith. Whatever you believe in, that’s a big part of who a person is, and how he will travel life’s journey. If he will not discuss it with you, that’s a big red flag.

  4. if a man does not share his Rastafari views then he is not Rastafari, just like if I did not share my morales and ethics I can not share my true belief
    to another. rastafri is not dreadlocks and raggae music, it is a way of life.

  5. i am with a rastafari he is open to talk about it but i perfer to study my own way so that i am not lacking in that area…. i have found it best to convert to his way of life for him to completely relate i have put dreaded my hair and changed my diet to that of no flesh…. i am a native american who loved meat over all and now it disgusts me to look at it…. converting to his way of live has not only gave him more love for me but it has shown me a new way of life pure happiness inside of my being….. and together we now have complete overstanding of each other….. all the island boy rastafaris i have met have been proud of being so and are willing to talk about this way of life…. and for a man to keep his woman in the dark then honey thats not your man or he really aint no rastafari just a man with dreads …..

  6. Peace & Blessings,
    Indeed, if I professed rastaman isn’t communicating on one of the most Important tings that emcomposses I life in which is Livity, then that is just peculiar. I would be left to feel suspicious of what rastamans darknes hides. Jah bless, Peace SelahJah

    1. Blessings Queens,
      I agree with SelahJah. Rastaman must be hiding something meaning maybe he isn’t a true rasta and uses rasta in making himself belong. Maybe he doesn’t know very much about rasta. I also thought maybe he feels that his Queen should be oppressed and left in the dark. Who knows but in any relationship and belief people communicate in order to get to know each other. I began dating a Kingmon who finally told me that he was Muslim. He is a beautiful man inside and out however our beliefs are much to different and sometimes differences can open up doors to division. So we parted and remain friends and we build a lot and it is amazing how you can learn so much from people of different faiths. Ironically his mother is Islamic and his dad is rasta, still don’t know how that worked but it works and I believe because he knows about both beliefs but chose islam it makes it so easy to build but that is it. I have learned so much. He always says we are all the Most Highs Children. I’d marry him if he asked. (LOL) Jah Bless

  7. Sorry but we cant help..pinkoide constant cheap talk is related to his insecurity feeling..which lead him to control terrorise and opress people.even if brother tries to explain you rasta religion you cant get it.nor are you interest in it all you want is he open more to him so that you perform your pink sorcery on him.your fake emotions are just way to better tied him

  8. I’m young I’m just 18 and I’m in love with a rasta man ?? I love him to bits and pieces he’s a true king – his loving is supreme #blessings
