You sit down an meditate of goodness an righteousness an what de Father did promise you to enjoy. De meek shall enjoy de earth! An der is NO death! Der is no worry. You na hav to face no temptation.

"We all a ONE! All one people. One love an one Unity carry de WHOLE earth. So you can't carry two... you can't give hate an love. Dat wouldn't be wise. De right Rastaman, dat know de right works an live de right way... he know de sed Creator create everyone! For no woman aroun dat mek him own self, an no man no der dat mek himself. No!

" De whole world a Jah CREATION! So den, Jah does not favour any one part a de earth... because He created the WHOLE earth. For it be written, 'De earth a de Law an de fullness der of'... ab ALL dat dwell in it... an ZION abideth'! So, ANY wer on de earth will do. Anywhere! A no be Africa alone. If it be Africa alone Jah created, den every one a be pack up over der. No man... no favorite. Look here now... if only Africa all I an I was to go... why Him mek Jamaica?... or England?... or America? A de WHOLE earth a fe RASTA!! An Jah mek man in Him own image... an man come in all different skin colour, an different hair colour, an different eye colour... no? Yes man!! So ALL a dem a de image a de Creator. A so it go. Brother an Sister. Give thanks. A de four wings a de earth (pointing in each direction)... anywhere on de earth will do! Anywhere you a livity... anywhere you live by righteousness, a dat be Heaven! Yes man! De Rastaman... I appreciate him dat a praise Africa. I appreciate it! But, I no get dat der fullness from Jah dat say everyone gonna bail out an jus go over a Africa.
