Ziggy has always been a positive spiritual force with his music. Upon release of his album Fly Rasta he explained it’s uniqueness and how it’s packed with 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, 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.
His albums Love Is My Religion, Ziggy Marley in Concert, Fly Rasta, Ziggy Marley all got Grammy love for Best Reggae Album.
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 once advised that our mind plays tricks with us to lean towards the negative rather than the positive. Living empathy is a positive excercise, to see other people without one’s own default setting – I’m pretty sure that those force fields are in endless supply.
