Ziggy has always been a positive spiritual force with his music, back when he released his album Fly Rasta he was asked how it was unique: He was able to draw from a full load of past experiences; Fly Rasta is at a good place after five prior albums of wisdom. David Nesta Marley grew the most in love he said, in spite of todays more visible attraction to hate on planet earth.
I love everyone, I don’t hate no one. Once we can find that love, life becomes easier, love is like a shield, like a barrier against negative energy, if you have too much love it’s like a force field.
Staying true to your roots without co-opting your inner core to quick selfish fixes, products or signifiers the world never waited for is a life long challenge. I’m always inspired by people who build a force field that fights the negative and empower the future for others.
I remember a spiritual mentor who mentioned that it’s often easier to lean towards the negative than the positive. Empathy is a positive excercise to see other people without one’s own selfish thought bubble – I’m pretty sure that those force fields are in endless supply.
