The High Spate of Injustice Worldwide

Within the Ifa/Orisa Community

 

 

ALAAFIA!

 

            It is with great concern for our spirituality that I pen / post this article.  For several years now as a pioneer of the return of Yoruba Sacred Science to some areas/regions of the diaspora, I look with disgust upon some of the prevalent practices by devotees of our ancient sacred sciences and methodologies and yearn for a system and/or institution for physical and mundane redress of the discrepancies of moral and ethical action expected of persons of gentle and noble character.

 

            I speak of several matters, issues and principles here.  We are adviced in Yoruba Sacred Science Tradition that the goal of the individual is the acquiring of the gentle and noble character.  We are led to believe that many of the priests of the various orisa we encounter are required to have this trait of gentle and noble character as part of their make up.  We are led to believe that our sacred science custodians are persons who have transcended the need for deceit, fraud, lies, maliciousness and several other ignoble character traits.

 

            However, many episodes of past, recent and continuing, provide example that our custodians are not what we make them out to be.

 

            Many are the accounts related by “New world” devotees, of short-changing in our initiations.

 

            Many are the stories of greed and corruption perpetrated by so called men/women of good character – representatives of orisa, and in some instances, orisa incarnate on earth.  How can we address this discrepancy and contradiction?  Are we to just sit by and await Eledumare’s judgment and intervention?  Or are we to take the counsel of Ifa and know that human beings are the ones to create an environment of love, peace, harmony and justice on the face of the earth.    I advocate the latter.

  1. E pele awon Adulawo nibi. Bawo ni nkan? We happened upon your site through facebook. The idea and forthrightness about EMANCIPATION stood out to us.

    We are Egbe Kilombo Vodun Isese. We are a Maroon/Nationalistic Egbe based in the greater Atlanta, Ga area. We are an Egbe who accept and work with Afrikans only. Not putting that here to debate with anyone who disagrees but we are simply stating this so this can be known if/when the owner decides to respond to our message and make connections. Please contact the Olori of the Egbe, Baba Awotunde, by email at awo@newafrikanvodun.com. We are asking that the Oloye of the Egbe here contact him.

    Please continue the good works.

      Mo wari fun isese o!Isese a gbe wa o!Aase! E kabo!Adupe lopolopo, for your visit to this site and the candid and frank manner of comments. Ifa advices us to speak the TRUTH and LIVE the Truth. Some verses of Ifa attempt to assist us in the definition and recognition of this TRUTH. So, I applaud your truthfulness. Your Egbe I am sure is an autonomous body and you are intelligent enough to create a constitution and codes and protocols to effectively govern your Egbe. We respect your right to autonomy and all we ask in return is mutual respect. I am sure that destiny is what allowed us to meet at this juncture,and I praise Eledumare,orisa, loa, abasom,neter and other benevolent beings and spirits that facilitated this encounter. May our shared destiny bring justice to our people and help recreate a planet in which there is mutual respect for the diverse manifestations of ETERNAL TRUTH that abound on this planet. Once again E kabo! Oloye Orawale Oranfe

  2. You my good friend are a genius

  3. I must say this data was quite remarkable. I stumbled onto you using a google lookup and was relatively thankful on your rank for this informative article.

  4. This is a comment to the webmaster. Your website:https://yorubasacredsciencecentre.wordpress.com/editorials/ is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I came to this page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your site: http://voxseo.com/traffic/. I managed to get over 10,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.

    It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all
    web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably
    did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
