THE SPIRITUALITY BEHIND IFA-ORISA

In my opinion, I believe the Yoruba tradition of Ifa-Orisa sits at the top of the pyramid of every practical, theoretical, and traditional practice or study. Again, this is simply my opinion. ...

THE STORY OF OLORE AND IKA – FROM THE SACRED ODU OF IFA

Aboru Aboye Abosise! I greet you all in the traditional Ifa initiate greeting. Today I want to share with you a story. This story is from the sacred "scriptures" of Ifa; specifically from the Odu Ifa nicknamed Ogbe/Sa or otherwise called Ogbe (ug-beh) Osa (Oh-Sah). What is an Odu? ...

WHO DO YOU TRUST IN THIS WORLD?

The lessons of karma are so much often repeated that many people just take it at face value and not as something real. The law of causation (cause and effect) is real and must be taken seriously. Spirituality needs to be taught in schools, or as parents, we must take up the responsibility to teach our children that the world we all live in is alive and pulsating. There are forces that protects us and forces which are here to harm us or create encumbrances to block our way. These forces are necessary for our evolution both malevolent ones and benevolent ones. Christianity has created the Devil or Satan (a singular being with minions at hand) to represent the malevolent forces I speak of here albeit they erroneously teach that these forces are but one single entity, who once was an angel named Lucifer. Perhaps I should not be critical of these teachings and learn to understand that this may have been a crafty way the religion figured they could teach their followers about forces of good and evil (making them singular entities with human emotions). Yeah, that's it, perhaps! (light bulb moment for me here, let me take a minute to sink this in). ...
