Not only do I create and perform musical works with all my heart and soul, I'm at least as passionate about writing down my thoughts and feelings. Reasoning, meditating and analysing is all part of this and by putting it down in words Jah has enabled me to share it with others.

What About Relief?

Greetings in the Name of the Most High Yesus Kristos!

Well, after spending the last weeks doing almost nothing but writing and writing and writing, it seems like the work is finished.

I'm glad and grateful that it's finished, unfortunately it was neccesary but when you love the truth then that is reason enough.

Yesterday, I was reading the manuscript on a place with lots of water and trees, kind of a good place to sit down for the final check. I got into a chat with someone, who was equally enjoying the site. We briefly talked about the contents of the manuscript, too.

As I touched a few subjects, the man asked me if it was a novelle, a fictional story. He just couldn't believe it, so to speak. But after he found out that it was a documented exposee, he was perfectly able to summarize the book: "I see, so it's all about money and power", he said...

Anyway, as I'm preparing the book for publication, I am physically feeling a relief which I can hardly describe. It's like a burden is lifted from my shoulders. I can't say how intense this burden was, as I am only noticing this relief just recently.

I just see how I am feeling a relief. I am, however, not trodding out of a bad situation. The burden was a good burden. I have learned so many things in the last eight months, it's impossible to mention it all in an update. I'm not even aware of everything I've learned as knowledge usually come to the surface only when you need it. I just notice how I'm learning from the last eight months and can apply this knowledge in practice on many occassions.

I don't think that true Christafarians will notice why I wrote this second book. I don't think they will see the reason why I had this burden on my shoulder. I'm not surprised that someone, who you never met before and who had never heard of Christafari, was perfectly able to summarize their aim where Christafarians will not see it when it s.p.e.l.l.e.d. o.u.t. for them...

And, personally, I've learned some very important thing out of this. Maybe that the man helped me over it, I don't know. It's not important either.

I learned the importance of the unimportance of people's perception on this subject. When you're happy with the truth, then you won't have to hear why the Truth is neccesary.

Did I have to learn this? Yes, definitely. The biggest mystery I had to face was the disability of the Christafarians to see the abomination of what that casual man was able to see in one minute...

The mystery is a daughter of a bigger mystery...

Even after the mystery was revealed so to speak, she was still the predominant factor in my "burden".

For a long time, I thought that it was my burden to explain the relevance of certain abominations. The initial shock caused by the fierce personal attacks on my person was not as intense the shock caused by the strong disrespect of the objective truth, but they both were strongly related.

All these "attacks" were considered a "defense" by Christafarians. It was clear how that defense mechanism worked. It became clear, that truth was not decisive here. My person became as important as Mark Mohr's person. And the contents, the subjects, TRUTH, became of secondary value.

So I thought it was my duty to explain the relevance of truth over persons. After all, these people claimed to follow "Jesus Christ", and I assumed that this meant the Christafarians were able to see the importance of truth over persons.

This only made the Christafarians become more defensive. But they only opened their mouth when certain issues were adressed which they themselves, as a person, had brought forward into the public domain for one reason or another.

So while they were able to see the difference between truth and persons, they chose to see the importance of persons of truth. Their religion simply made them see some relevance in persons over truth. They call it "love and unity"...

In the meantime, I saw other situations where the same thing came to the surface. I saw that people were actually using biblical sounds to gain control over what they perceive as "the Christian Church". False doctrines and teachings, obviously. I saw people who were actually using these very same doctrines and teaching to be under control! I guess that's what Bob Marley calls: "slavish mentality".

Some people actually prefer the prison over freedom. And they think they are free, they truly do. They are free from thinking for themselves. They are free from being just another human, next to a whole lot of other humans, as they create their own enviroinment: a caricature of the truth, both objective and subjective.

I thought I had to explain the neccesity of this all, but thank JAH I don't have to!

So the relief I physically sense in this last stages before the publication of The Mystery Of Christafarianism, is my own, personal relief. It's not relevant for those who need to read the book. It might be relevant to the Christafarian who reads this, though.

One last remark: When you want to hear some good music concerning this: check out a tune called "warning" by Tony Rebel. (on the album "If JAH")

One Love,
Messian Dread
