~families with a roots rasta livity~ - Page 2

post #21 of 58
Hello , I just wanted to post and say what a beautiful spirtual past I think Rasta is . My brother lived in the red wood forest for years in Cali . When he came back he had a love for the Rasta life and introduces me to your music.He wore dreads that were very important to him until the day he passed last summer .I also love the respect you use when talking and it has made reading these posts a delight. Best wishes on your path
Peace
Shannon

I'm subbing because I've always been interested in this! I'm a non-denominational Christian, but when it comes to actual terms of living I fit in with a lot of the root mamas here in my community. In fact out of my closest friends I'm the only "non-rasta" person! Time to learn what you guys and ladies are all about

Hey ladies I have a question!!! I was talking to a local rastafarian mom about what the term "livity" means and she basically just explained it as "righteous living". My question is, if that is the meaning of it does that mean that the term should only be used in correlation to Rastafari or could it also be used by people of other religions? I ask because if that's the meaning it seems that any religion (Christianity, Islam etc) could use the term yet I only see it used by those who are Rasta

Then again I may just be confused which is why I came to ask

Bless up Sis,
The term does come from Rastafari, though I believe it could be used by anyone. Some may not know what you are talking about, but it would literally be an opportunty to spread the word, and teach others about its meaning. I would also add the word is like Liberty, seen, and so that is what our life is to be, freedom and liberty to life in a righteous way with free minds and free hearts not bound by any babylon ways....There are lots of words that have been changed to more clearly state truth, such as appreciLOVE instead of appreciATE, and so forth. One of my best friends has a daughter named Livity
Bledded Love,
Sunmama

i agree with sunny, i don't think rasta people have any sense of ownership of the language. if it makes others able to have a clearer overstanding of the ways things are, then anyone should use it! there is a rich tradition that sunny mentioned, of changing the language so it sounds like what it is. this comes from HIMs use of the phrase WORD SOUND and POWER which we take to mean words carry weight! and using empowering words empowers the speaker. that is why it breaks my heart to hear people using self-defeating language like "i am a terrible mom, i just let my kids watch 2 movies today" or simply: "i suck. " people say that one all the time, you know? i do it too, but if we honor ourselves with our language we are so much more likely to really give ourselves that honor, seen? and then give it to others as well.

i am a big believer in empowerment.

one love roots mamas.

I feel a livity is way of living through the light of rasta. By living by this livity you are living rightously. In my family we believe our livity is to surround ourselves in postivity, love, and enlightment. It is not in our livity to speak in a demeaning manner, to bring harm to any other being, or to live following the babylon system as just another sheep in the herd. The Rasta "livity" is to live by Jah, accept him as King of Kings, and live by his teachings. Other religion may just call this their "beliefs", but as Rasta we don't believe, we know, and live by that knowledge, that is our Livity. Rastafari! Bless!

Where in Oregon are you? I'm in Corvallis... I've been interested in the Rasta lifestyle for a long time... I'm so glad to see this tribe! A boyfriend once nicknamed me Irie

A question... does one have to believe that Haile Selassie was the incarnation of Christ in order to follow the Rasta livity?

I'll be at the festival if we can afford to go!

Bless!
