Welcome to the Ital corner, where we discuss all things clean to our i’niverse……If you are not ready to hear the truth about what is compatible to your temple the house of Jah, please skip this corner! However if you have an open mind and you are willing to at least listen, and maybe adapt some of our ideas to your everyday life then please…..Take a seat…..Said the spirit to the soul.
Part 1- Firstly what is Ital?
- Clean palatable food, that promotes prosperity, good health and vitality to the HUMAN body….We often are sold the DIE’t of another species.
Do all Rasta’s consider a singular set of foods Ital?
- No….Rasta is not a religion, there are codes and guidelines one would take upon on themselves to learn, which leads to personal, communal and ideally environmental benefits. Some eat fish, but no scallops or meats; some eat no fish or any meat but may eat the by products of an animals (Link between Hinduism?), some eat only Vegetation and fruit.
Is There a right or wrong way?
- A good question, much of confusion and resulting conflicts sprout from the idea of right and wrong (dualism), one cannot argue against the obvious dualistic nature imprinted in life down to the minute atom that if split left causes an atomic explosion, if split to the right creates duplication. Dualism is a concept we commonly come across in eastern cultures, in particular the yin and yang symbol embodies this phenomena; we often do not look at the whole picture in the west though. To only see the contrasting/conflicting sides is not to see the whole, as in the yin there is a hint of yang and within the yang a hint of yin and the dual natures exist within the whole(the yin&yang sign), in other words all contrasts exist within a whole, what i am getting at is that, there may well be a beneficial way of eating/living that promotes well being and growth to the whole earth. Lets call this, ‘ equitable eating habits,’ but some sort of super diet that appears wholly beneficial to the individual does not exist. Get slim quick diets, quick body mass formulas etc may have short term results but i Haile, doubt it is truly benefical to ones inner world and the odds of the production of these products being managed in accordance with equitable factors is unlikely…….
Please stay tuned for part 2 as we delve further into…..equitable eating; equitable factors and we go searching for the true garden of Eden….. One Love!
