The Bravest Soul – Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr

The toil of life is never ending; it passes from one stage to others; We live beneath its sombre bending, and ape the customs of our fathers.

We glory in it’s radiant joy, and smile with the everlasting sun; This eternal change that man employs, has been so from Adam’s day begun.

The bravest soul truly conquers all, in seeing God in our fellow men, this planet is just a spinning ball,  of God’s wondrous spiritual plan.

In this life we may know no better; but in sleep we pass to the spirit land, where the soul is free from all fetter, to join God in His creative hand.”

– Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr

“Having had the wrong education as a start in his racial career, the Negro has become his own greatest enemy. Most of the trouble I have had in advancing the cause of the race has come from Negroes.

Booker Washington aptly described the race in one of his lectures by stating that we were like crabs in a barrel, that none would allow the other to climb over, but on any such attempt all would continue to pull back into the barrel the one crab that would make the effort to climb out.

Yet, those of us with vision cannot desert the race, leaving it to suffer and die.”

– Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr

“Some of us seem to accept the fatalist position, the fatalist attitude, that God accorded to us a certain position and condition, and therefore there is no need trying to be otherwise.

The moment you accept such an attitude, the moment you accept such an opinion, the moment you harbour such an idea, you hurl an insult at the great God who created you, because you question Him for His love, you question Him for His mercy.”

– Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr
Selected Writings and Speeches of Marcus Garvey

Although Marcus Mosiah Garvey was not of the Faith of RasTafari, no doubt he made a tremendous influence upon both the RasTafari faith and the Black people right across the diaspora.

Indeed, we must educate ourselves of these things to be aware and mindful of these times. We must acknowledge Elohim and his mercies and seek HIM.

It is important we seek the history of RasTafari, and know that it is deeply rooted in the Bible. In the word, is where HIM will manifest HIMself unto you.

One should read his Bible one chapter per day, with a clear conscience and humbleness as a child, from Genesis one to Revelations twenty-two.

Seek HIM. Be Blessed. RasTafari.
