My name, Rasta teacher comes from me being a teacher and having dreadlocks for twelve years. I have a Degree of Master of Education, thanks to the Swedish system which has all education free and available for any citizen from kinder garden up to and including university. That is why I like paying taxes. Someone payed for my education and now it is my time to return the favour for nextcoming generations.
Life is music and music is life (ever since a small boy I have been in love with music: See the next page for more on music). Apart from music I go around trying to see the positive in things, looking for love and trying to be at peace with myself without wanting things from the material world to make me happy.
As for my worldview; I firmly believe that all people, animals and nature should be treated kindly and with love and care. The way I see it all people are equal regardless of belief, skin color, education, gender, personal style (hair, clothing, jewelry, nose rings, tattoos etc.) and should therefore be treated equally. No woman or man is better than anybody else, just different.
I do not believe that any such thing as a homogeneous group exist and therefore one should be careful about generalizing and saying things such as “They are like this or like that”. All perceived groups are composed of individuals and as individuals we are all equally different. Although all people probably share more similarities than differences (we may do things differently but the most important things are the same):
If you cut a person no matter where on earth they will bleed.
If you do not have anything to eat you will starve no matter where you live.
If you close your eyes you will never be able to recognize the difference between the touch of a black or a white hand.
There are kind and unkind people in all places of the world and in all societal structures.
People feel love and other emotions for family, friends and acquaintances, sometimes even for strangers no matter where in the world they may live.
Therefore I try to live by the motto:
One people, one heart, one world, one love!
