What I love about reggae is that it is a primal beat which corresponds exactly to the heart chakra. It's a potent tool to shift gears with and rise above the distractions by.

It's the music of the people, and as such the word reggae comes from everyday, common things-ragga, raggedy and not concerned with superficial things.

In many ways, reggae is a reflection of the mind and the heart of the people who are somehow restricted or downtrodden by the workings of society, if that society is the cause of poverty and all of the real evils associated with it, in other words a repressive or dictatorial type of society characterized by intolerance and fear-based control.

As with every genre there are as many interpretations of the music as there are people, as no-one can follow another.

One really is not obliged to believe in any particular thing and yet be a diehard reggae fan, though generally speaking there aren't any racists or downpressing heavy people who love it either.

Blessed Be
