IrosùnỌ̀sá; importance of heeding Ifá-Oracle advice...

One example from Odù-Ifá, IrosùnỌ̀sá,

Ifá teaches us the importance of heeding the advice of the Divine Oracle (Ifá). This is the story of Ọ̀runmìlà & the then 800+1 Orisa that were all seeking for prominence & entry into the Earthly realm to occupy a dignified place.

Ifá says:
...The Head (Orí) should be accorded His due
All collectives must have Olórí (A Leader)
This was the Ifá message to Ọ̀runmìlà and the 800+1 Orìṣà
Who were contesting for position on the Earth
they were told to perform ebo and render annual tribute to Olódùmarè
it was only Ọ̀runmìlà who performed the complete ẹbo


Olódùmarè was placing the necessary Àṣẹ upon those who came seeking, yet intentionally did not disclose all the attributes needed in order to prove worthy of attaining this Àṣẹ.
The intent of Olódùmarè was to see which of the Orìṣà would perform appropriate rituals and heed the advice of the Oracle, such a deity would understand the importance of undergoing divination and following the advice, prescriptions and rituals needed. This combination of advice(s) is the word of Olódùmarè and Olódùmarè true intent, failure to follow ALL the "intent" would result in one issue or the other, thus incomplete.
It was only Ọ̀runmìlà who not only sought the advice of the Oracle, but also completely ingested its advice. Including the appropriate disposition needed to truly embody the characteristics of Olódùmarè, acting as Olódùmarè representative on Earth.

This Ifá-Oracle advice as with many Odù-Ifá, tells Humans our lives need order and divine intervention (advice), in order to capture the true intent of our Purpose here on Earth.

As I understand the Oracle is the word of Olódùmarè, or is the very wisdom of God that is revealed to us in parables. In fact transcends the simple function of Oracle, because it contains all the information necessary to make it possible to turn any imbalance in the fullness of Ire. Being a binary form of communication, transcending the obvious, because it condenses a vast range of information on subliminal messages, which can only be understood and implemented by the touch and subtle harmony with the Èlà spirit . The important thing is not only divination, but rather interpret and solve problems that are presented to us. Through understanding the words of God, and it happens. in the collective because Orunmila speaks through the mouth of many and not only through a person. As for the individual purpose of each human being here on this plane, I can say that each will understand the issue in accordance with the knowledge that has .. Personally I say I am a very new Awo, and my understanding is still very small, but I believe that with sufficient time and effort to come to understand a little more.. Eseun oo..

Pelo que compreendo o Oráculo é a palavra de Olódùmarè, ou seja, é a própria sabedoria de Deus que nos é revelada através de parábolas. Na verdade transcende a simples função de Oráculo, pois contem todas as informações necessárias para que se transforme qualquer possível desequilíbrio, em plenitude de Ire. Sendo uma forma binária de comunicação, transcende o óbvio, pois condensa uma imensa gama de informações em mensagens subliminares, que só podem ser compreendidas e executadas, através do toque e sintonia sutil com o espírito de Èlà. O importante não é somente divinar, más sim interpretar e solucionar os problemas que nos são apresentados. Através da compreensão das palavras de Deus, e isso acontece. no coletivo, porque Orunmila fala pela boca de muitos e não apenas através de uma pessoa. Quanto ao propósito individual de cada ser humano aqui neste plano, posso dizer que cada um compreenderá a questão de acordo com o conhecimento que possui.. Pessoalmente digo que sou um Awo muito novo, e minha compreensão ainda muito é pequena, más acredito que com o devido tempo e esforço venha a compreender um pouco mais.. Eseun oo..
