IHIses / JAH SOLITARY .. in honour of (the 123th birthday of) His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie The First

 IHIses - Imanuel IHI D

"Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land ."
(Psalm 68:1-6)

There are no propper words to describe certain things in life. Especially those vibrations / frequencies that we absorb not necessarily through our eyes but mainly through our other senses through listening, feeling, smelling and especially through our third eye, the inner IHI, the replica of the Holy of Holies (i.e. the Ark of the Covenant also known as ZION) within our / JAH Temple. While the letter is referring to our human body (consistant of flesh, skin, bones, blood, water etc.), the former is referring to the spiritual dimensions within our human nature. Spirituality is what in-spirits our material form of existence. Spirituality is what gives our life a vision and a direction where to go and what to do. Especially in ruff times when it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel and no one to turn to in times of crises. It is the Great Spirit of Life, the very essence, center and fountain of all forms of life (from the spiritual to the material) that is always there for us to give us a helping hand and a place of refuge. 

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." (2 Corinthians 3:17)
His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie the First stated it as following on January 19th, 1951 ( 

"Spiritual power is the eternal guide, in this life and the life after, for man ranks supreme among all creatures. Led forward by spiritual power, man can reach the summit destined for him by the Great Creator."

To reach this summit wich is destined for us by our Great Creator we are therefore depending on this eternal guide (i.e. Spiritual power). Every single one of the whole human family has his personal gifts and talents and his own very purpose of existence, whether they are known and developed or still waiting to be explored and strengthened. His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie The First teaches us the unmeasurable value of education wich “has no limitations and no boundaries” ( There is always something new to experience and to explore with the main aim of utilizing it for the common benefit and well-being of the (global) human community.
Throughout history there are numerous of examples of human beings who did not develop their gifts and abilities for the common welfare of the larger human race, but where driven through evil spirits to harmful evil deeds, wich intstead of playing their rightful part within the human family and therefore to support it`s spiritual and physical wellbeing, aiming to follow their own personal interests, contradicting the rightful order of equal human rights and social justice. His Imperial Majesty Eperor Haile Selassie The First put it with the following words:

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”

We all know about the atrocities human beings proved themselves able to commit. We all know through personal experiences that human beings are able to behave (as it is said) so very unhuman. So without generalizing we can say that there are two sides, whether it is right and good, or it is wrong and bad. Human beings were given the ability to decide freely. This fact on one side is a very great blessing as it allows us to measure out for ourselves what is best for us and from a social perspective what is at the same time best for our fellows and at the same time what should be avoided is it is not of any good value. On the other side it bears the danger of the abuse of this great power wich lays within this freedom of decision. It is violated if it is directed towards egoistic benefits of single individuals or single groups if they are gained upon the disadvantage of others and therefore against the common good and wellbeing. His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie The First made the following Speech at the World Evangelical Congress 1966 in Berlin, underlining this very fact of reality:

In these modern days, there are a multitude of things published in print and broadcast by radio which captivate the human mind and spirit; many new ideas are disseminated by the learned. Many wonderful appliances are produced to make life more and more comfortable. The rich powers have passed on from exploring and exploiting this earth and are vying with each other to explore and conquer the moon and the planets. Knowledge is increasing in a bewildering manner. All this is good, wonderful and praiseworthy. But what will be the end of it all? It is Our firm belief that only what the Lord wills will be done. We should be careful that the results thus achieved by mankind should not meet with the fate of the Tower of Babel, the handwork of those people of old which came to pieces in their hands. The Apostle Paul says: "The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God" and "The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise and they are vain." The reason for this is because generally speaking man makes himself and his wisdom the beginning and the end of his aim in life, and we are convinced that the end of this is destruction and death.

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: "What has a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" Why did the effort of those who tried to build the Tower of Babel come to nothing? Was it not because they tried to live apart from their Creator, and because, vaunting themselves in their wisdom, they tried to build a tower whose top was to reach unto heaven and thus make a name for themselves? It is Our conviction that all the activities of the children of men which are not guided by the Spirit and counsel of God will bear no lasting fruit, they will not be acceptable in the sight of the Lord and will therefore come to nought as the Tower of Babel came to nought. […] However wise or however mighty a person may be, he is like a ship without a rudder if he is without God. A rudderless ship is at the mercy of the waves and the wind, drifts wherever they take it and if there arises a whirlwind it is smashed against the rocks and becomes as if it has never existed. It is our firm belief that a soul without Christ is bound to meet with no better fate.”

Christ, God, the (Holy) Spirit, wich form together the Holy Trinity (Kidus Selassie) is therefore so very essential and necessary for our human nature and nature in a whole to exist, that we cannot miss HIM. Every single one of us has a great responsibilty towards ourselves and each other. If we cannot find ways and means to live together in peace and unity what will be the end of it all? All those familar with the words and teachings of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie know the answer very clear and straight. This is NOT A JOKE THING. This is LIFE in it`s realest form, as real as (e.g.) the second world war was and still is real!! This topic is o great concern to all of us regardless of sex, colour, race or creed!!! This topic is „BEYOND“ any denominations human beings might be able to be categorized in!!!

On this point it would be suitable to go further into this direction, as there is so much more to say and mention concerning the very danger of human existance, wich His Imperial Majesty taught us is, together with international morality, at stake. His Imperial Majesty started His appeal to the United Nations on the 4th of October 1963 with the following words:

Mr. President, Distinguished Delegates:
Twenty-seven years ago, as Emperor of Ethiopia, I mounted the rostrum in Geneva, Switzerland, to address the League of Nations and to appeal for relief from the destruction which had been unleashed against my defenseless nation, by the Fascist invader. I spoke then both to and for the conscience of the world. My words went unheeded, but history testifies to the accuracy of the warning that I gave in 1936.
Today, I stand before the world organization which has succeeded to the mantle discarded by its discredited predecessor. In this body is enshrined the principle of collective security which I unsuccessfully invoked at Geneva. Here, in this Assembly, reposes the best - perhaps the last - hope for the peaceful survival of mankind.
In 1936, I declared that it was not the Covenant of the League that was at stake, but international morality. Undertakings, I said then, are of little worth if the will to keep them is lacking.
 The Charter of the United Nations expresses the noblest aspirations of man: abjuration of force in the settlement of disputes between states; the assurance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion; the safeguarding of international peace and security.
But these, too, as were the phrases of the Covenant, are only words; their value depends wholly on our will to observe and honor them and give them content and meaning.
The preservation of peace and the guaranteeing of man's basic freedoms and rights require courage and eternal vigilance: courage to speak and act - and if necessary, to suffer and die - for truth and justice; eternal vigilance, that the least transgression of international morality shall not go undetected and unremedied. These lessons must be learned anew by each succeeding generation, and that generation is fortunate indeed which learns from other than its own bitter experience. This Organization and each of its members bear a crushing and awesome responsibility: to absorb the wisdom of history and to apply it to the problems of the present, in order that future generations may be born, and live, and die, in peace. […]

But each one of us here knows that what has been accomplished is not enough. The United Nations judgments have been and continue to be subject to frustration, as individual member-states have ignored its pronouncements and disregarded its recommendations. The Organization's sinews have been weakened, as member-states have shirked their obligations to it. The authority of the Organization has been mocked, as individual member-states have proceeded, in violation of its commands, to pursue their own aims and ends. The troubles which continue to plague us virtually all arise among member states of the Organization, but the Organization remains impotent to enforce acceptable solutions. As the maker and enforcer of the international law, what the United Nations has achieved still falls regrettably short of our goal of an international community of nations.
This does not mean that the United Nations has failed. I have lived too long to cherish many illusions about the essential highmindedness of men when brought into stark confrontation with the issue of control over their security, and their property interests. Not even now, when so much is at hazard would many nations willingly entrust their destinies to other hands.
Yet, this is the ultimatum presented to us: secure the conditions whereby men will entrust their security to a larger entity, or risk annihilation; persuade men that their salvation rests in the subordination of national and local interests to the interests of humanity, or endanger man's future. These are the objectives, yesterday unobtainable, today essential, which we must labor to achieve.
Until this is accomplished, mankind's future remains hazardous and permanent peace a matter for speculation. There is no single magic formula, no one simple step, no words, whether written into the Organization's Charter or into a treaty between states, which can automatically guarantee to us what we seek. Peace is a day-to-day problem, the product of a multitude of events and judgments. Peace is not an "is", it is a "becoming." We cannot escape the dreadful possibility of catastrophe by miscalculation. But we can reach the right decisions on the myriad subordinate problems which each new day poses, and we can thereby make our contribution and perhaps the most that can be reasonably expected of us in 1963 to the preservation of peace.”

These words clearly show us the unavoidable necessity of collective security and unity within the human community. It is a decision every single one of us has to do for ourselves. There are only two options. Whether right or wrong. Let us give each other a helping hand on this straight and narrow path to this summit (we all are longing for to reach intrinsically so very much), wich is destined for us by our Great Creator.

His Imperial Majesty continues His Speech to the UN in mentioning two particular issues
which are of deep concern to all men: disarmament and the establishment of true equality among men.”

“Disarmament is vital today, quite simply, because of the immense destructive capacity of which men dispose.”

“When we talk of the equality of man, we find, also, a challenge and an opportunity; a challenge to breathe new life into the ideals enshrined in the Charter, an opportunity to bring men closer to freedom and true equality and thus, closer to a love of peace.
The goal of the equality of man which we seek is the antithesis of the exploitation of one people by another with which the pages of history and in particular those written of the African and Asian continents, speak at such length.
Exploitation, thus viewed, has many faces. But whatever guise it assumes, this evil is to be shunned where it does not exist and crushed where it does. It is the sacred duty of this Organization to ensure that the dream of equality is finally realized for all men to whom it is still denied, to guarantee that exploitation is not reincarnated in other forms in places whence it has already been banished.”
What follows then in His Imperial Majesties Speech to the UN is the very famous part wich Bob Marley used in his “War” song:

“Last May, in Addis Ababa, I convened a meeting of Heads of African States and Governments. In three days, the thirty-two nations represented at that Conference demonstrated to the world that when the will and the determination exist, nations and peoples of diverse backgrounds can and will work together. in unity, to the achievement of common goals and the assurance of that equality and brotherhood which we desire.
On the question of racial discrimination, the Addis Ababa Conference taught, to those who will learn, this further lesson:
That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned:
That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation;
That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes;
That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race;
That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained;
And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed;
Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will; Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven;
Until that day, the African continent will not know peace. We Africans will fight, if necessary, and we know that we shall win, as we are confident in the victory of good over evil.

His Imperial Majesty is not only speaking for Ethiopia, not only for Africa but for the whole world, for every single human being regardless of race, colour, sex or creed.
I cannot close this reasoning without quoting the MOST IMPORTANT WORDS of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie The First of this 1963 Speech the United Nations (i.e. the representation of nearly all the nations of the world and therefore every single human being on this planet earth):

To achieve this requires courage and confidence. The courage, I believe, we possess. The confidence must be created, and to create confidence we must act courageously.
The great nations of the world would do well to remember that in the modern age even their own fates are not wholly in their hands. Peace demands the united efforts of us all. Who can foresee what spark might ignite the fuse? It is not only the small and the weak who must scrupulously observe their obligations to the United Nations and to each other. Unless the smaller nations are accorded their proper voice in the settlement of the world's problems, unless the equality which Africa and Asia have struggled to attain is reflected in expanded membership in the institutions which make up the United Nations, confidence will come just that much harder. Unless the rights of the least of men are as assiduously protected as those of the greatest, the seeds of confidence will fall on barren soil.
The stake of each one of us is identical - life or death. We all wish to live. We all seek a world in which men are freed of the burdens of ignorance, poverty, hunger and disease. And we shall all be hard-pressed to escape the deadly rain of nuclear fall-out should catastrophe overtake us.
When I spoke at Geneva in 1936, there was no precedent for a head of state addressing the League of Nations. I am neither the first, nor will I be the last head of state to address the United Nations, but only I have addressed both the League and this Organization in this capacity.
The problems which confront us today are, equally, unprecedented. They have no counterparts in human experience. Men search the pages of history for solutions, for precedents, but there are none.
This, then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed?
We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.
And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.” (

FINALIZING IN THIS SPIRIT IHI want to share a song of mine wich IHI wrote for the exaltation and praise of the Holy Spirit, the Most IHI God and Christ – the Might of the (Holy) Trinity (i.e. His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie (whose 123th birthday will be celebrated on the 23rd of July)). This song was also written for the encouragement of every single human being within the human community. Our destiny, aim and zeal (the summit wich is destined for us by our Great Creator) is to become these very members of a New Race, where there will be no more pain und no more sorrow, no more first or second class citizens, but only ONE HUMAN FAMILY, "a world in which men are freed of the burdens of ignorance, poverty, hunger and disease." !!! Towards this goal is where each and every single one of us has the great responsibility to work towards to, each and every day in our life, no matter how seemingly hard or hopeless the times. Together we shall stand, divided we shall fall. Let us support and enrich each other, towards this very ultimative goal, IN THIS / HIS SPIRIT!!!

Let me close up with the following advice of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie The First, wich he made on May 5th, 1957, on the occasion of the 16th Liberation Anniversary:

“From the day that We were elected by the Almighty to guide the destiny of Our people, and during the past sxteen years, all those of you to whom We have delegated power and appointed to various positions of trust in the service of Our people, should consider yourselves, like Us, equally divinely appointed. Oreover […] We have always reminded Our people that each and everyone should help and support Us to fulfill Our national objectives. Our happiness today must not be based primarily on material things or it would not be any different to animal satisfaction. Each one of you should endeavor to cooperate with Us to work selflessly for the development and prosperity of Our country Should you recognize that like Us you have been chosen to serve Us, you will do your duty to God and country, lest your conscience condemn you.” (
Heartical blessings and thanks to all those who inspired and strengthened so many (including myself) through their selfless efforts of brotherly / sisterly LOVE. JAH is LOVE (so) let us ALL LOVE !!! Amen.

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"
(John 11:25-26)

Dienstag, 26. Mai 2015



The first conference of the independent African states was held in Accra, Ghana, on April 15, 1958. It was decided then to celebrate this historic day as African Freedom Day. Until recently, April 15 was celebrated throughout our continent as African Freedom Day.
However, two years ago today in May the Summit Conference of the Independent African States, which was convened in Our Capital City of Addis Ababa, decreed that May 25, the day on which the historic Charter of the Organization of African Unity was signed, be celebrated every year as African Liberation Day. Accordingly today is celebrated as African Liberation Day.
The African Unity Charter was signed two years ago today. Within this brief period much has been accomplished that augurs well for African Unity. In accordance with the resolution of the first Assembly of African Heads of State and Government held in Cairo last year, the headquarters of the Organization of African Unity has been established here in Addis Ababa. Under its Secretary-General, His Excellency Mr. Diallo Telli, of Guinea, the Organization is successfully discharging its responsibilities and commitments.
The Ethiopian people, who have struggled and made untold sacrifices for their independence and freedom for thousands of years – an independence that has been a beacon for all of Africa – today celebrate this day together with all Africans by consolidating their freedom and independence with the freedom and independence of their African brothers in the spirit of Modern Ethiopianism.
This year, two sister African states – Zambia and Gambia – have won independence and they have joined the family of independent African states. We share their joy and We extend again, as We did on the occasion when they won their independence, Our sincere felicitations. We are anxiously awaiting the day when those Africans in the dependent territories break the shackles of foreign tutelage and become masters of their own fate.
On this solemn day, all of us must pause and remember the plight of Our African brothers who are under foreign rule and who are desperately struggling to win their freedom, their basic fundamental human rights.
Instead of granting their rightful freedom and independence to the indigenous Africans in Angola, Mozambique and Portuguese Guinea, the Portuguese Government has intensified even more its campaign of ruthless suppression of African freedom fighters in these territories, under the outmoded, illogical pretext that these territories are part of Portugal. In concert with the other African members of the United Nations Organization, Ethiopia has never ceased advocating at United Nations and other international conferences that the Portuguese Government should grant independence to each and every territory under its rule.


The recent events in Southern Rhodesia are cause for alarm – not only is the fate of the people in the territory in jeopardy but international peace is also threatened. A white minority Government in the territory is daily arresting, and arbitrarily persecuting African freedom fighters, particularly their leaders, to suppress the national freedom movements. This minority government has even taken drastic steps to declare a colonial government. Each and every government and the peoples of the world who value fundamental human rights, and particularly We Africans, must oppose, with one voice, this dangerous and unprecedented scheme of the white minority government in the territory. The United Nations Anti-Colonial Committee of which Ethiopia is a member, is presently visiting Africa to follow closely the dangerous situation in Southern Rhodesia.
In South Africa and in South-West Africa, the policies of apartheid and oppression are becoming increasingly unbearable. The South African Government is accelerating its ruthless campaign: a methodological campaign of arresting daily, detaining without trial and torturing the Africans and their leaders who are struggling for their fundamental human rights and freedom. All the peace-loving countries of the world must act together to force the colonial governments of South Africa and Portugal to desist from these policies – policies which are inhuman, policies which deny basic human rights, policies which are detrimental to the peace and security of the entire world – and grant independence and freedom to these oppressed people.

To the U.N.
The Assembly of the African Heads of State and Government has authorized the Foreign Ministers of Senegal and Algeria to bring the cases of racial discrimination and oppression in South Africa, the inhuman colonial rule of the Portuguese Government and the dangerous situation in Southern Rhodesia, before the Security Council of the United Nations to find permanent solutions to the unrelenting struggles of the African governments and people. As a result the entire world is today more conscious of these pressing problems.
From discussions in the United Nations in recent years, We have cause to believe that some friendly nations fully support the efforts to impose an economic boycott on South Africa and Portugal; it is unfortunate that some great powers who have been entrusted with the maintenance of international peace and security have not co-operated in these worthy efforts. These powers are the main obstacles to an effective economic boycott of South Africa and Portugal.
The establishment of the Organization of African Unity, the concerted action of the member-states and the pooling of the aid to Our brethren African freedom fighters, have helped to revive and strengthen as well as intensify the liberation movements throughout Africa. For this We are grateful to the Liberation Committee of the nine African States, of which Ethiopia is a member. On this day, we should all recollect with gratitude the support of all those friendly nations in Our endeavour in the United Nations and other international conferences to free Africa of all the colonial vestiges.

Next Assembly

It will be recalled that the Cairo Assembly of the Heads of State and Government decided to convene the Second Assembly of the Heads of State and Government in Accra, Ghana, in September this year.
Because of misunderstandings among certain member states of the Organization of African Unity, voices have been occasionally raised recently against the convocation of the Assembly in Accra. Nonetheless, the regular Assembly of the Heads of State and Government was, in the first place, designed to find peaceful solutions, through deliberations and frank exchange of views to such misunderstandings among member-states. We believe, therefore, that any change in the venue of the next Assembly will make no major dif-ference. Consequently We have despatched Our Minister of State for Foreign Affairs to West Africa, with personal messages from Us, to mediate with the leaders of the West African states concerned.
We earnestly hope that the member-states of the Organization of African Unity will meet in Accra in September in accordance with the decision of the first Assembly of the Heads of State and Government.
On this day, We extend Our fraternal greetings to all Our brethren Africans who are still suffering under foreign colonial rule. We reiterate that Ethiopia, in co-operation with the member-states of the Organization of African Unity, will always continue to give her full support for their just struggles to win their inalienable rights to freedom and independence and to be masters of their own destiny.
May Almighty God assist us in endeavours.
