Ifa on Hopelessness

Leave a comment

As we as a global community head for more seemingly hopeless times (famine, drought, war, etc) we must remember that we always have hope in the form of IFA.

IFA teaches us:
Ogbe touches the matter for it not to break
Ogbe touches the matter for it not to bend
A beautiful bride is desirable when passing by
When she moves into the home
She becomes trouble
Cast Ifa for Orunmila
When he was in debt in six different places
And Ifa requested a goat from him
He then made his cry a cry of shouting
And made his song a dirge of lamentation
Now those who write one off do not know tomorrow
If one is not yet dead
One chances for achievement have not yet ceased
Those who write one off do not know tomorrow
Travelers to Ipo and Ofa
Join us in the midst of abundant Ire
