Humility…!

“Humility so simple to pronounce word but often so difficult to make… humility is not giving you the study nor the money…"Neither the maximum achievement you’ve had in your life… It is the nobility you have in your heart and your soul to forgive and acknowledge your mistakes and see all alike… many confuse humility with poverty or one who never defends themselves when assaulted… humility is the acceptance of others regardless of who they are or what they have… is the feeling that your person is not lower nor higher than anyone else…”

Reflections day Tuesday 06-08-2013…!… “Good morning…"Iboru Iboy Ibocheche…Happy Tuesday… to all the religious of the world… and for all our fans…Excellent reflection…The more wealth you accumulate, are more attached, and more subject to greater concern, anxiety and fear…There can be no peace of mind for riches-laden person…We are born happy and with everything you need to be, but at some point in our lives, while still children change…We associate materially to success and happiness, without giving us realize that happiness is joy, love, respect and compassion…I don’t know if everyone experiences the feeling that I experience every time you helped someone, but is a sense of joy, of feel good with me, joy and satisfaction for having done something good, is one of the happiest moments of the day…If I say day, because I do it every day and every day I am more happy…Let us be kind, give to others without reservation, we will help those who need us without waiting for nothing, love without fear of anything, we may be good as that being good is not to be idiot is a virtue that many idiots not understand, and above all never forget sample reason for living, it will be our reason for success…Just giving you can receive, what we give, late or early and you receive it multiplied by ten… not confuse success with wealth, wealth dies with us, success endures forever… ”

Reflections…!

“Passion makes one stop eating, sleeping, working, living in peace…Many people are scared because, when it appears it collapses everything old there is…Nobody wants to unravel the fabric of their world…For this reason, many people manage to control this threat, and are able to maintain a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are engineers of great things…Other people think exactly the opposite: is delivered without thinking, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems…Download on the other person the responsibility for their happiness, and all their guilt for their possible unhappiness…It is always euphoric because something wonderful happened, or depressed because something unexpected ended up destroying it all…Depart from the passion, or blindly give yourself to it, which of the two attitudes is less destructive? I think that like everything in life, if done with restraint and responsibility, it can be light, the illusion, the happiness that is missing in our day to day…”

Reflections…!

“We must not confuse money with success…Success is a deep, intimate experience that fills the soul, stimulates the mind and vibrates in the heart…The spiritual victories are eternal, just remind yourself to revive them any day, any hour, any time…The money is ephemeral it comes and goes…Those who think that the only measure of success is money they are wrong…”

Attend “The Warriors”…

The first thing that gets a person willing to initiate in Osha-Ifa are these deities representing the four spirits or ancestral forces that will protect  from lifetime. Therefore, they are the first that come to the individual. According to legend, they are Elegua, Ogun, Oshosi and Osun. These Orishas are the first an individual devotes. Essential always the presence of this Foundation in any ceremony, Rite of consecration, in the initiation of Osha  Ifa initiation.

There is a patakin or history that is as follows: Obatala was disappointed in the world and its people. He was willing to not talk anymore to anyone, because he did not trust in the people who had so abused him in different ways. Thus, he encloses in his room for awhile. At the end of which he decides to Ebbo to try to remedy the situation of distress that was. After that he had sacrificed a canton chicken, a rooster, a dove and a goat sucker, blood ran through the floor thoroughly and squeezed under the door into the street. Obatala poured fresh water which, together with the blood, went smoothly under the door in the same direction.

People, passing, they were amazed and instead of entering the House of Obatala for helping him, began to shout loudly Obatala had committed suicide without doing anything more. Everyone who was looked at and then shouted the same but not verified if it was true that he was in danger of death, although they saw blood seep spurting.

News of the alleged death of Obatala ran like wildfire and came to the ears of Elegua, Ogun, Oshosiy Osun that were in the field working. They were immediately launched into the village. Upon arrival, they saw that the people swirled outside the door of Obbatalá but none came to see what was happening. Barely step were among the crowd to the door.Each one pushed his way violently to the point that Ogun, with his huge strength, knocked down it and the four entered swift calling father Obatalá. It came out clean and immaculate and said: “my children, being you who risked arriving first to save me from a possible attack without fear that something would happen to them, by Decree they will always be those who come first in all my children anywhere relief that are and will always be the first to receive offerings that are made in the consecrations and initiations.”

Reflections…!

“In fact, practicing the Act of giving is very simple…If we want joy, give joy to others…If we wish to love, we learn to give love…If we wish for attention and appreciation, we learn to pay attention and to appreciate others…If we wish for material wealth, we help others achieve that richness…Actually, the easiest way of getting what we want is to help others get what they want…This principle works equally well for people, companies and societies…If we want to receive the benefit of all the good things of life, learn to wish in silence to everyone all good things of life… "Ashe Onareo…!”

Awo Orunmila Omo Odun Reflections…!… “Our religious principles prevent us judge others by their social status…Whether rich or poor, good or bad… we are possessors of a religious ethics code… when someone searches for support or the communication of our gods…It is our duty at all times to assist them, guide them, aligning them…Not to judge…

Reflections…!

“” One of the most sensitive planes of the human being is the emotional…That rises with joy and decays with the sadness…Sometimes he seems to euphoria and other breaks have no mood or to rise, and in the midst of that harrowing instability it dries up and languishing life…To make progress, it is necessary to reflect in the light of the principles, values and virtues to control emotions and achieve a life with security and stability…“

“Principles, values, and virtues give meaning to the life of the human being…A life without sense is empty, absurd, who does not deserve to be lived…Solidarity, honesty, freedom, dignity, spiritual integrity and material, are planes that simultaneously bring to life its reason to be”
