who here has dreads and isn't Rastafarian?
I started my dreads about a year after I started getting into the Pagan religion. I didn't do it to 'look cool' or to 'fit in', I done it to express myself and learn lessons that the process of locking teaches. The most important one is patience and that would be the #1 thing I had a problem with. I respect everyone's religion and I think that the whole process of dreading is more about getting to know and express yourself and help you learn lessons that can be used in everyday life rather than just church or groups.Oh and I posted this off from yours Faelwynn because I totally agree with what you say not because I'm against it =] Blessed beFaelwynn said:
Dreadlocks are so old as a hair style and way of life that I believe it is impossible to know their 'true nature'. I wear mine as a form of spiritual expression... so in a way it's a very spiritual journey for me as well. However, I am not Rastafarian in the least. I'm a pagan, and very very proud of it! I also have Celtic roots, so my dreads are an expression of myself on a number of different levels!
