Babylon... the profane world order. Babylon means confusion.
How do Jah people exist in this confused and perverted world without becoming corrupted by it?
When the answer is so simple, why do so many have so much trouble?
How do Jah people correct this situation?
What good will that do?
We must be able to see in order to find our way.
Jah's anointing Cannabis consecrates people, enabling them to see.
Profane (unholy, not consecrated) statutes regulate profane matters.
Natural consecration restores natural (divine) order:
It restores natural order by replacing profanity with divine (natural) law:
This is why men so-consecrated naturally tend to dismiss offending profane statues. Such are governed by natural law and naturally declare it:
A common contemporary expression of this natural law is found on "God grew it" t-shirts popular within Cannabis culture.
Have you been mislead or even commanded to push the consecrated branch away from your nose?
Prohibition is obstruction of both covenant and inheritance:
Yet Babylon continues to judge Jah people (Cannabis' folk). A famous messenger of Jah declared long ago:
By the means of his father accompanying his messengers:
When profanity oversteps its bounds require respect by declaring natural law:
Love one another. Inherit The Branch.

(Isaiah 55:10-11)
The seeds below are some truly groovy words. Send 'em forth!

The Leaflet is a blog of Cannabis-related nuggets of information. Short informational articles that you can use to share ideas with others, inspire conversation and perhaps encourage people to look deeper into the subject and gain knowledge for themselves. JahShuah taught that knowledge, not blind faith, is what makes InI free (John 8:32). The Leaflet is a place for nugs of knowledge to share.
A "nug" within Cannabis culture is a little bud. It's also a term we use to describe a small amount of relevant information.
Read, enjoy, like... but most importantly: share. Knowledge only works when you share it. You can easily share with a light question. Here are some examples:
"Hey Dad, look at this interesting leaflet. Do you know anything about this? (link to leaflet)"
"Senator Johnson, this leaflet (link) relates to the subject we were discussing last week. Please give me your thoughts..."
"Julie, I know you were taught Cannabis is a sin. Did you know this (leaflet link) was in the bible?"
"Hey Bob, remember our chat about seizures and cancer the other day? Take a peek at this leaflet (link) and let me know what you think."
- "Pastor Adams, I'm dealing with the subject of this leaflet within my family. I know many others who are as well. Will you please look at this (link) so we can discuss it?"
You don't have to push your opinion. You don't have to make people see. You don't even have to win an argument. Thoughts are things, and they are planted like a seed. Share a thought... and idea... a concept... a Leaflet... in a positive and non-confrontational way, and you have planted a seed. Sharing another thought or two is watering... If the soil (recipient's mind) is at all open and fertile, the seed will grow. Plants have seed within themselves which spread, take hold and become more plants. The effect is exponential and can quickly cover the entire landscape.
Leaflets are seeds. The people around you are the soil. Sharing is sowing seed.
Enjoy The Leaflet, and please... share.

Words are interesting things. They are symbols we use to convey ideas. We can show someone a photo of a glass of water... or we can scratch out a drawing... or we can point at the sink and then to our mouth... or we can say or write "may I have some water?" All of these approaches are symbolic ways to convey the idea we want or need the wet stuff that comes from the lake.
Problems arise when words are used to imply things they don't mean, and when their definitions are limited or filtered such that original, essential meaning is lost and confusion results.
Genesis 11:1-9 tells the story of the Tower of Babel and describes how to divide, disperse and render a united people powerless: confuse the language.

What is SpiritLeaf Ministries?
SpiritLeaf Ministries is primarily a teaching ministry focused on the spiritual history and contemporary role of Cannabis. We teach and share knowledge via the spiritleafministries.org website, social media and live presentations. Contact SpiritLeaf to come speak to your group, church, club, association, etc.
Who is SpiritLeaf?
SpiritLeaf is just a regular guy. He is a husband, father and professional computer geek. He drinks coffee, eats food, wears socks (sometimes) and does the regular things human beings do. His background is fundamental/charismatic Christianity where he usually served by playing guitar. He is drawn to words and dictionaries and etymology and looking at the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew expressions behind English Bible translation. Today he is a Rasta man and teacher with a universal interest, as all traditions/cultures have their own languages and stories though which they teach perceptions of "God".
SpiritLeaf is a teacher of biblical atonement and spiritual healing. SpiritLeaf's particular interest is in what JahShuah ("Jesus") had to say about Cannabis / Hemp, as it is the Bible's prophesied Plant of Renown; the Healing Of The Nations. His prayer is that we all be One. That's Rasta. That's universal. One Love.

SpiritLeaf is a chosen/spiritual name. Many people have chosen/spiritual names. Names like Eagle Feather, Running Deer, Cresent Moon, Black Elk and Red Cloud are some other examples of chosen or spiritual names which provide particular meaning to their holders.
The Bible articulates several such meaningful names:
- Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. (Genesis 17:5, KJV)
- And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. (Genesis 17:15, KJV)
- And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. (Genesis 35:10, KJV)
- And Simon he surnamed Peter; (Mark 3:16, KJV)
- A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1, KJV)
Why not use your "legal"/given name?
What we teach and express here is in accordance with the First Commandment of Jah religion which clearly articulates how to view such a thing. Babylon's "legal" name convention implies permission by which to identify and under who's authority it is granted. SpiritLeaf teaches under Jah's authority alone using the name given to him, by Jah, for this purpose.
Therefore if any man be in the anointing of JahShuah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17, KJV)
Today, there is only SpiritLeaf; the new creature. The previous man identified by secular authority (under a "legal name") no longer exists. This is the point and object of Jah religion. It is the explicit meaning of the word "church" (Greek ekklesia, meaning called out of Babylon (thus no longer of it)).
- Thou shalt have no other gods (magistrates; controllers) before me. (Exodus 20:3, KJV) Jah alone.
When Jah gives one a new name, one honors Jah by identifying with that name.
As all names express character, "SpiritLeaf" is an expression of Jah's Law.
- For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6, KJV)
Please look closely at Jah's government. It is found upon JahShuah's shoulder. "SpiritLeaf" is a spiritual name expressing, in a word, Jah's government. It is given by JahShuah for this purpose, whenever and wherever it is spoken.
Respecting Jah, god of the host (cannabis), who's smoke is the prayer of the people. [Psalm 80:4, JPV]
I am,Ras SpiritLeaf
Love one another.
