SORT BY Relevancy
It is said that "IFA WILL MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD" but in looking at the state of affairs in the Ifa-Orisa-Egun Worldwide FAMILY, and the closed-mindedness other religious families have towards us, it is of great urgency that we assit IFA in the mending of our broken world. In the Ifa Odu of the Year, (JUNE 2014-JUNE 2015), "ODI OGBE" WARNS all DEVOTEES AND PRACTIONERS that there would be many who come to destroy the image of the AWO when Solagbade Poopola wrote; "grand conspiracies and intrigues against all Awo the world over. Adherants of other faiths are making all efforts in their power to surpress and overwhelme all Awo in order to ensure that they do not amount to anything in the scheme of things". IFA NEVER LIES and because of that, Ifa cautions all AWOS (adepts) to not misbehave, especially towards women or else...Instead, seek for amicable resolutions to differences and not use your spiritual powers to attack other AWOs or for the purpose of control as many men who feel they must have control over a woman or be higher than a woman in rank and status are doing now.
HOW DO WE GO ABOUT GETTING OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS OFF OUR BACKS? WHAT ARE SOME POSITIVE WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN PROMOTE IFA TO NON-IFA/ORISA/EGUN PEOPLE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES? WHAT POSITIVE STEPS DO YOU THINK WE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE AS INDIVIDUALS IN ORDER TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD? WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU AND/OR YOUR IFA/ORISA COMMUNITY MADE TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD?
THERE IS A GROWING TREND FOR PEOPLE TO IFA/ORISA BARGAIN HUNT? IS IFA/ORISA LIFE ABOUT BUSINESS OR IS IT ABOUT SPIRITUALITY? WHAT DOES THE COST FOR INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR SPIRITUALITY? DO THE COST OF INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS DRUM UP BAD FEELINGS AND INTERFERE WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL WALK? WHY DO PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT COST FOR INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS? WHY ARE PEOPLE SEEKING COST EFFECTIVE WAYS TOWARD SPIRITUAL FULFILMENT? DOES THE PROCESS OF BARGAIN HUNTING FOR INITIATIONS, RITUALS AND EBOS CREATE INTERNAL STRIVE AND DISCORD BETWEEN AWOS AND THOSE WHO BARGAIN HUNT? WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST BE DONE ABOUT THIS GROWING TREND?
COMMENTARY: As cost of living rise so does cost for everything else, including all the items needed for initations, ebos and rituals. This cost also includes payment for manpower used to perform initiations, ebos and rituals. This issue has not stopped people from wanting to initiate or needing to do ebos and rituals but it does cause people to BARGAIN HUNT!
"ISESE" is (THE WAY YOU FUNCTION IN IFA/ORISA LIFE)". HOW DO ONE DO ISESE? WHAT DOES ISESE HAVE TO DO WITH TABOOS? WHAT DOES ISESE HAVE TO DO WITH THE CHOICES YOUR ORI MAKES? HOW DO THE TRADITIONAL YORUBA AWOS EXPRESS ISESE? WHAT ARE WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN EXPRESS ISESE? WHAT DOES ISESE HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL LIFESTYLE ADJUSTMENTS, INTROSPECT AND SELF-EXAMINATION?
DO JOIN US ON TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE TODAY AT 8:PM EST. CALL 347-850-1533 TO SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING OF ISESE OR TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF IT. Thanks! Looking forward to our talks! Ase!
