I have recently been working with Monkey-B to "hold a meditation," or "reason" as some say. In the Rastafari understanding of this terminology, it means to hold a long conscious back and forth chat about serious matters, remembering to practice awareness in the moment and not get distracted or kill the vibes.

easoning is an important social skill often overlooked in this hyper-fast attention deficient modern world we live in, and now that Monkey-B is getting a little older, I want to share with her some important aspects of Rastafari livity which I feel will serve her well in this dispensation. Principle of these aspects is the ability to reason and hold a meditation with a fellow human being. When I say "hold a meditation," I don't mean it in the east-Asian religious understanding of the word, but more so from a Rastafari perspective.
or me personally, holding a meditation means the ability to reason for an extended period of time without interruption while keeping things conscious. Although we practice a purely Ital diet, I want my youths to understand that it's what comes out of our mouths that is of the upmost importance. I have been talking to Monkey-B like an adult since she was a baby, and she knows to ask for an explanation if she doesn't understand a vocabulary word. From years of this, Monkey-B is able to converse with adults much better than most adults can converse among themselves, and some people find it shocking.
onkey-B has been teaching me how to be more comfortable and natural on camera, something that comes to her easily, and me not so much. She wanted to take the lead on today's reasoning, something she normally doesn't do, but I sensed she was tooting her own bravery horn, and complied. As you can see in the video, she quickly changed her mind, but boy is she cheeky, and she certainly is the best video-based content creator in our household. That's about all there is to say as the video speaks for itself, so I recommend watching more than reading.
