Conscious Friday: Rasta woman vibes today...

and she came to Jerusalem
with a very great train
with camels that bare spices
and very much gold
and precious stones.

Makeda, Queen of Sheba
Makeda, Queen of Ethiopia.
the great, wise King Solomon
seated on the throne of Israel.

she communed with him
of all that was in her heart
and king Solomon gave unto
the Queen of Sheba all her desire.

and from this joyful union
came the son of Solomon
Menelek I, son of the wise
legendary first Emperor of Ethiopia.

from the root of David
came the King of Kings
Lord of Lords
Conquering Lion
of the tribe of Judah.

Haile Selassie I.
JAH Rastafari.

Let me borrow a few words from Makeda, Queen of Sheba for you.

'Your wisdom and goodness are beyond all measure. They are excellence itself. Under your influence I am placing new values on life. I see light in the darkness; the firefly in the garden reveals itself in newer beauty. I discover added lustre in the pearl; a greater radiance in the morning star, and a softer harmony in the moonlight. Blessed be the God that brought me here; blessed be He who permitted your majestic mind to be revealed to me; blessed be the One who brought me into your house to hear your voice.'

one love sistern
