Religious Tolerance in a turbulent world - A leaf from the Yorùbá...

When many nations are regressing into a culture of religious hatred, hostility, fanaticism, terrorism, bigotry and conflict the Yorùbá are at peace with each other. The question is: how have the Yorùbá managed to tame this hydra-headed monster of religious intolerance?

First and foremost, religious intolerance is very “un-Yoruba”. The idea of hating someone for their religious beliefs does not exist in the psyche of the Yorùbá.

ODÙ IFÁ ÌRẸ̀TẸ̀ OGBÈ

This is an Odù warning against covetousness, against over-reliance on foreign products and ideals, and also, against overdoing egalitarianism. It warns us of Trojan horses, parasitic relationships, and fiendish friends. It tells of the fish which has all the Planktons and smaller fishes in the World all around it for food, but the moment a hook gets immersed in the river with tasteless bread or worm as the bait, it forgets/belittles all it owns and slaves after the foreign

How Europe Succeeded to Make Africans Happy about their Colonization

Though they wish, Europeans don’t have the physical capacity to occupy Africa. Africa is too big, too vast and too diverse. However, Europe has the power to ideologically occupy Africa.

They have chosen that road and it’s giving them even better results, than physical occupation.

At the moment I’m writing this post, colonial Europe is doubling down on their ideological occupation by investing heavily into their main propaganda channels like

Polygamy? This is what Ifa said about it in Òyèkú Méjì:

Translation:
Only one wife is good for a man
When they become two they turn to troublemakers
When they become three they become home-breakers

Ogun: Ogun is the Orisa of single purposed focus, strong foundations, and of metalwork. Over time his association with all things metal has also made him the Orisa of cars, trains, and airplanes.

He governs the work of metalsmiths, mechanics, and doctors. Children of Ogun are known for their tireless work-ethic and their short fiery tempers. Children of Ogun tend to be attractive, forceful, and strong willed. There isn’t an Orisa out there that can work as long and as focused as Ogun. Ogun controls the sacrificial knife and as such after

What is their purpose on Earth, and their relationship with humanity?
Iyaami can also be called Iyaami Aje or Eleye.
They are part of the spirits sent by Olodumare and they follow the desires and will of Olodumare.
The Iyaami Aje are not Orisa, and no one can be initiated into Iyaami Aje. I repeat this, no one can be initiated to Iyaami Aje. Whoever does this should know that they have created problems in their life.
They can switch to different forms of

Before you accuse other people of blocking your destiny, it is better to examine yourself.

When you fall into the habit of externalizong your power by putting anything else before your ori, you also set the stage for victim mentality.

Ori mo ja juwon means Ori knows how to fight better than the rest. When you're aligned with Ori, no force can obstruct you. Likewise, when you're out of alignment with Ori, no force can save you.

Observe what Ifa says on the subject:

A short dress is on the hanger

To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.

Neither is it the acme of excellence if you fight and conquer and the whole Empire says, "Well done!"

To lift an autumn hair is no sign of great strength; to see the sun and moon is no sign of sharp sight; to hear the noise of thunder is no sign of a quick ear.

What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.

Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage.

"There's good in evil, and there's evil in good."
The late Ifa priest Afolabi Epega often said this. It's an expression in Ifa. It doesn't mean that good and evil are the same thing. It's a way of saying that everything has two sides. Everything that we think is positive has a negative side. And that which we say is negative often has a positive side.
A relationship that falls apart might cause you pain (negative), but it might force you to grow spiritually (positive) and help you realize that

Most of the problems in your life derive from your relentless pursuit of something "better" that will bring you ayo (joy). The obvious problem is that you lose the opportunity to enjoy the thing you presently have, but the real folly is believing that a thing can make you happy; though you can enjoy things, they are not a source of ayo. Your enjoyment of a thing is based on your own imagination, the ojuinuwo. This word is a contraction of oju-inu-wo (the inner-eye sight) Your ojuinuwo is the source of ayo.

If you don’t understand what Ori is, then read this:

Ori is a person's anatomical head which contains the brain. However IFA teaches that inside this physical head and apart from the brain there resides another entity, a psychic impalpable force that determines the individual's fortune in life.

Ori is cognate with the European concept of destiny except that with Ori there is a factor of personal responsibility influencing the net effect.
Ipin ( a person's lot)
Iponri (individual choice)

Teach your children what you want them to become irrespective of age or gender, only Olódùmarè knows what the future holds and God that gave you the Female children is not a fool, it's you that should not fool yourself by discriminating against the female child. Don't hide the mysteries of the Òrìṣàs or whatever you can't afford to see perish from your children whether male or female, only God knows the child that will bury one after one joins the ancestors.

OSUN
Osun is the cosmology force of fresh waters (rivers, streams and lakes). She reflects one of the manifestations of OLÓDUMARÈ (Supreme bring/ God) in the Yoruba Orisa pantheon.

"Osun, guide me so that I stay on path towards my destiny and navigate through the challenges I face daily, just like the river finds a way around obstacles and stays on course"...

"Osun, protect our home, my love ones and myself. Just like the river forms a natural barrier, may it create a protective barrier between us and those with bad

Mike Bamiloye Oosa which is a corruption of Òrìṣà is not translated as "the gods".

Òrìṣà is an elision of 2 words "Orí" meaning "head" and "Ṣà" meaning "select".

The literal meaning of Òrìṣà is therefore "Select Head"

In Yoruba land, Òrìṣàs are equivalence of Saints in European religions.

The catholic church canonize people as saints when they die due to their contribution to the advancement of the society via the religion.

It is the same in Yoruba land, Òrìṣàs are those whose "head" (Orí, destiny, ìpín)"selected" them to do

Put a frog into a vessel fill with water and start heating the water. As the temperature of the water begins to rise, the frog adjust its body temperature accordingly. The frog keeps adjusting its body temperature with the increasing temperature of the water. Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog cannot adjust anymore. At this point the frog decides to jump out. The frog tries to jump but it is unable to do so because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature.
