ORI

ORI IS THE SUPREME-SECRET, HIGHEST-POWER AND KEY TO LASTING PEACE, HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY, EMPOWERMENT AND FULFILLMENT.

[Ifá-Orisa]: The knowledge [personal recognition and experience] of Ori is the key [supreme-secret] that will lead [and take] you to lasting peace, happiness, prosperity, empowerment and fulfillment. Knowledge of Ori is knowledge of the super-self. Knowledge of Ori is true, complete and irrefutable true-knowledge and true-power. When you know Ori you will know yourself in wonder, astonishment and marvel.

The essence of true-spirituality is peace, contentment, happiness, self-knowledge, inexhaustible spiritual-vitality [power], harmony [integral-health] and self-acceptance. Only when you accept yourself as as you are can others accept you as you are. When you recognize and experience your own ori you will know yourself truly and will be peaceful, content and brimming with happiness and confidence.

Understand, know, accept and embrace the fact that you have within you a unique share of the supreme divine power [Ori]. When you actually understand, know and perceive [experience] this fact then will you know and have true peace. When you realize the fact of Ori your worries, agitation, turbulence, confusion, unclarity, aimlessness, melancholy and uncertainty will come to an end.

When you embrace and fully trust the unique expression of the divine spirit [Ori-Eleda] that is within you only then will you be free of all worries, concerns and pressures. You will have strength, power and ability to rise above all difficulties and you will do so with a peaceful, content and serene heart. Nothing will be able to hinder and obstruct you.

All human beings have received this endowment of the manifesting divine spirit [Ori-Eleda] indwelling within them. You have your own unique, peculiar, powerful and special spirit of divinity [Ori] within you, and I have my own unique, peculiar, powerful and special spirit of divinity [Ori] within me. They both emerge from and originate in the one supreme spirit but the divine spiritual intelligence that is in you and me are original and have been uniquely and perfectly fashioned and crafted for each of us. Yours is different from mine. Mine is different from yours.

This inner-power is guiding us in a unique, peculiar and specific way. This is why there is no reason, purpose or point to be made in comparing oneself with others, or others with us, because we each have our own unique mission, purpose, path and destiny. There is only one universal and supreme spirit who is the Master, Guide, Creator and Friend of the innumerable [infinite] universes: Olódùmarè. This one supreme spirit [Olódùmarè] manifests and appears uniquely and in diversity in every one of us. This unique divine inner-presence, energy, sublime spiritual current, supra-natural intelligence and power is what nurtures, protects and develops our spirit, mind and body. This inner-intelligence, presence and divine inspiration energy, power and entity is a plenary [direct, immediate and actual] personal manifestation of the supreme universal spirit: Olódùmarè.

Olódùmarè [the spirit of beauty, life, peace, joy, elevating [inspiring and empowering] wisdom, diversity and harmony] truly and literally lives within us. When you entrust yourself to this inner-power and exercise faith in your true inner root and foundation [ori-eleda] then only will you be able to appreciate its power and find your own center, foundation, peace and serenity. Our lives become filled with gratitude, wonder, excitement, enthusiasm, optimism and delight when we entrust ourselves to the divine power, spirit and energy [ori-eleda] that is within us and who is our life companion, friend, protector, well-wisher and helper. When we neglect this inner-guide and we allow ourselves to be led and influenced by people and their opinions, worries, fears, biases and concerns then we too become lost in a maze of confusion, bewilderment, disenchantment, melancholy and aimlessness. When you have confidence in ourselves and in our ori-eleda we transcend ignorance, turbulence, agitation, fear, worry, insecurity and doubt. We become efficient, power and independent of the thoughts, opinions, biases and conclusions of others. We will not be and cannot be swayed by praise or criticism. We become manifestations of divine equanimity, peace, contentment and transcendence. When we discover ori-eleda, experience ori-eleda, follow ori-eleda and entrust ourselves to ori-eleda by the blessing [benefit] of receiving sound and empowered knowledge we became awakened persons who know who we are, what we believe, we become unified within and harmonious without, and we live an original, attractive and spontaneous beautiful life that does not conform itself to any superficiality set pattern, tradition or routine established by others.

You were created to perceive, experience and enjoy your inner-guide, friend and companion and to listen to this divine inner-voice, energy, intelligence and inspiration. You must follow your own endowment of the divine power [ori-eleda] that is within YOU and not someone else’s endowment. Your Ori-Eleda is the true initiator and recognition, experience and ones entrustment to ones one ori-eleda is the TRUE-INITIATION and the TRUE SOURCE AND FOUNTAIN OF POWER, GRACE AND VIRTUE. All the GOD-POWERS originate in and which emerge, flow and emanate from ori-eleda. Let your yourself be filled by, surrounded by, permeated by and immersed in the GOD-POWERS that originate in and which emerge, flow and emanate from your own ori-eleda!

Have confidence in yourself and have complete faith in your complete, unique and perfect portion of the universal supreme power [ori-eleda] that is within you and has always been within you. If you listen to and obey the voice of your inner-personal divinity instead of the comments, complaints, opinions and views of others you will find true peace and happiness because you will have found yourself. You will come to your senses and true nobility and dignity will be yours. You will be established in serenity, calm, peace, balance, synergy, harmony and wellbeing.

The divine spirit [ori-eleda] within you will only grant good to you whether you have asked for this goodness or not. The divine spirit within you will always avert, block and deflect anything that is not in your true best interest. The divine spirit [ori-eleda] within you will also safeguard you by not granting you things that you asked for that you erroneously thought would be good for you but really were not. You don’t need to complicate yourself and you don’t need to stay on the path of disenchantment and disappointment. You don’t need to keep following people who are not worthy of being followers. You don’t need to keep drowning out your own true feelings and convictions to appease or attempt to please others. What you need is to entrust yourself to the Divine Beloved, Companion, Guide, Superpower and Friend who exists within you and manifests in your life as inspiration, enthusiasm, illuminated intelligence, tenderness, understanding, strength and love.

My friends, recover and take notice of the priceless sacred gem of the divine power, presence and virtue [ori-eleda] that is within you and which is enshrined in the sacred shrine of your heart like a burning flame that cannot ever becomes extinguished and which never ceases to give light, comfort and warmth.

This divine power, supernal divine intelligence and living spiritual current [ori-eleda] will lift you up and keep you up. It will make you aware of the sweet fragance, goodness, dignity and beauty of your own person and your own life. Freedom and peace will be yours. Gratitude and the joy of living will overwhelm you. Anyone who awakens to the reality of his or her ori-eleda will become established in strength, stability, confidence and in an amazing personal spiritual power and wonderful spiritual intelligence and charisma. All the good things of life will run to find you! You will no longer be subject to the manipulation, deception and trickery of others. You will see what needs to be seen. You will know what needs to be known. You will understand what needs to be understood. You will see people as they really are and not as they seem. Everything will become clear and comprehensible to you.

My spiritual friends and family return to your true-home [ori-eleda]. Return and awaken to your own ori-eleda [to the realization and refreshed recognition and experience of the supreme beloved, divine-current and the omnipotent indescribable power living with you]. Become sensitive again to the divine sweetness and inspiration! Abandon and give up the doubts, worries, anxieties and insecurity that others have caused to arise in you or have attempted to impose upon you! Recover your spiritual autonomy, dignity and self-confidence. Take wholesome pride and delight in yourself. Value and cherish yourself because you are precious. Return to your true home [the divine dwelling place of the sacred, divine and holy -ori eleda- within you] where the infinite sea of tranquility, power, joy and confidence is brimming. There you will attain eternal [unending, complete, peace-conferring and satisfaction giving] joy. This is the place of true initiation. This is the true initiation, the true knowledge and true power. Let no one live their lives, opinions, conclusions and biases through you. Take your life back and live YOUR LIFE and let others live their own lives through themselves and not through you.

This is all your really need to know, understand, recognize and realize to find peace, fulfillment, satisfaction, happiness and contentment in your life.

THE GREAT SECRET [SACRED-MYSTERY] IN REGARD TO ORI AND IPONRI [THE HIGHER-SELF]

When Olodumare first created us, formed us or gave ‘birth’ to us ages ago in the divine realm of spirits, Olodumare already previously planned what kind of grandiose, glorious, unique and magnificent being we would become at the end of our moral, spiritual and intellectual development over many lives. Before Olodumare decided to create you he already had the completed, glorified and perfect vision of you in mind. At present we are still undergoing moral, spiritual and intellectual formation, development and unfoldment. We are progressively and steadily moving in the direction of the great purpose or destiny which Olodumare already had in mind for us before deciding to create the human spirit.
That glorious, perfect, original and unequalled being that one day we will be already exists in the eternal mind of Olodumare and in the divine spirit realm. I know that hearing this divine truth for the first time can initially be difficult to accept or comprehend, by I assure you that soon you will grasp it and and know the reality of it.
That archetype, design or original blue-print of our perfected being is called Iponri. Our individual and personal ori or ori-inu is inseparable from the reality and activity of Iponri (our perfected higher self) which exists in the eternal mind of Olodumare and in the divine spiritual realm.
Our ori derives power, guidance, direction and inspiration from Iponri our perfected being in the divine spiritual realm of causes and in the eternal mind of Olodumare. Our lives, our human spirit, mind and personality yearns and pines for fusion with Iponri.
Iponri in union with our ori-inu is the source and origin of what we experience and call spiritual inspiration, enthusiasm and motivation. When we for whatever reason stop growing spiritually and we stop making forward progress we fall into a rut. We get stuck where we are, and then we find it very difficult to get up, to begin again and to keep going forward. When this happens our Iponri sends a current or signal charged with spiritual enthusiasm which causes us to cheer up, it causes us to get up, it motivates us, it inspires us to get up again and to keep pressing forward when we were feeling like giving up altogether. This is the great and wonderful power of Iponri! Have you ever experienced this before? Have you had the following experience before? You have given up, or you are tired of trying and you decide that this is it, you are not going to press forward anymore, your fed up and you’ve had it! But then after some time a great power of enthusiasm, hope and motivation fills you up and you completely forget about and abandon your previous negative and lowly feelings! This is the power of Iponri and Ori!!!
Every time that we grow and advance after some considerable time of patient effort in the direction of our Iponri, we feel, experience and receive a divine infusion of asé which increases our motivation, our capacity, our intelligence and our spiritual power. It is Iponri who is sending this current. It is Iponri helping us. Iponri dispenses this power, current and virtue and our ori-inu receives it. Our spirit, our subtle spiritual body [soul] and our physical body are nourished by this spiritual food, power and intelligence which ori provides.
The primary function of our ori is to lead and guide us to the realization of our perfected being as perfectly pre-ordained and pre-planned  by Olodumare. Life after life our divine ori accompanies us as a faithful friend, guide, teacher and companion until we reach unexcelled perfection. We should greatly value and love our ori, because ori is the personal manifestation, power and presence of Olodumare indwelling our minds, sharing our struggles, challenges and victories, and assisting us in our growth and unfoldment. Our ori-inu will definitely complete its mission of leading us to flawless glory, excellence and perfection by assisting us in our growth and development until we become qualified and prepared to partake of fusion with our Iponri. For now this is all I want to share about this divine mystery. Ifá will add more light to us on this all important matter.
May you  be inspired, enlightened and encouraged by this teaching which reveals the astounding depth, beauty, power and comprehensiveness of the Ifá conception of life and of how fortunate and blessed we are as human beings. It is wonderful the manner in which Ifá reveals to us the true value, meaning and purpose of human life. May you be motivated to enter deeply and with enthusiasm into your own Ifá research, study and practice. Without one’s personal effort and consecration [sacrifice] there can be no reception and enjoyment of reward, victory and attainment.
May Òrúnmìlà Awinrin continue to benefit, illumine, guide and defend you. Àse.

ORDER IN TRADITIONAL BELIEF SYSTEM

The following order can be recognized place to place and is fairly typical
  • The Supreme being (Olodumare)
  • The Chief Divinities or Gods
  • The Ancestors
  • The Spirits
  • The Charms and Amulets

THE SUPREME GOD: This is recognized among all traditional believers all over the world, the supreme being is called or can be called different names depending on places to places and language variations. for example, yoruba as a case study, yoruba belief system called the supreme God as Olodumare or Olorun, Olorun means “Owner of the Sky“.

Every race of the world has a legend myth connecting God and the creation of origin of their race.




THE CHIEF DIVINITIES: These are next in rank to the supreme God, they are simply refer or regarded as the physical representatives of God in the world and are also called different names from place to place. Example: Obatala, Ifa, Osun, Ori, Sango, Ogun and so on. each of them have their own shrines, priest, cults, initiation ceremonies.

THE ANCESTORS: Every family has the belief that their ancestors survive as the living-dead among the family. Ancestral worship could be restricted to members of the affected families alone. Egungun is the best way to get connected to a dead ancestors and that is why you see each family having or can be trace back to a specific egungun name e.g Oya Arogunmola is an egungun that belongs to arogunmola family of Ota, Oloolu of Ibadan belonging to oloolu family and so on.Continue reading
