Aboru, Aboye, Abosise to all Awos, Elders, and devotees of all spiritual systems. Let my words be respectfully and warmly received as they reflect the truth pertaining to things spiritual. Things have gotten totally out of control. There are so many chasing labels, stickers, tags and titles, clothes, crowns and beads the identity-less, so thirsty for identity, entitlement and respect that they are not even exercising any common sense and intelligence in their pursuit of what should be ancestral knowledge and becoming a perpetuator of their ways. They have forgotten whose shoulders they stand upon. Individuals that have not even taken out the time to gain a general basic understanding of what they perceive to be spirituality; Individuals who have not taken out the time to properly study and research; Individuals who have not taken out the time in committing years to what it means to be a good devotee; Individuals too quick to want to step into the shoes of the hierarchy of spiritual leadership without study, training, and the school of hard knock experiences that come with spiritual leadership.
A priest, priestess, high priest, or high priestess of any spiritual system are not made, manufactured, or purchased. They are born from it. They come into this world with an lifelong ancestral commitment for spiritual leadership written in blood. It is a process people and a long gruelling one if you happen to be born outside of the borders of any indigenous cultures, traditions, and spiritual practices. That’s why we have our spiritual derivative systems. Derivative in the meaning that they are not practiced in exactly the same manner, form and fashion outside of their indigenous origin borders from which they hail as they are practiced inside the borders of their native land. And as a result of it all, it has turned into a such feeding frenzy that the smell of blood pumping through the veins of these individuals, so clueless and desperate for identity, has drawn out every blood-sucking vampire on the planet, those ever so hungry and thirsty for godchildren and to fulfil their king or queen and loyal subject complex.
Leadership is something that is supposed to come about naturally, by the people, for the people. Chosen amongst those who are living, breathing examples, not perfect for there is no perfection living and dwelling within the human condition of humanity, but individuals who subscribe and have committed to mental, physical, and spiritual growth and progression of the people on a conscious level. Every arena has its own language. There is a certain way that lawyers and judges and prosecutors converse amongst themselves in the arena of law. And the same thing can be said pertaining to the industry of medicine. Every man, woman, and child on the planet is a mind, body, and spirit component being and to live any other way than within the conscious understanding of ones design leaves one spiritually homeless, living outside of themselves, seeking, searching, wandering without any spiritual navigation.
So what does this mean? Anyone claiming to be a spiritual practitioner of any kind, their mission pertaining to those who are supposed to naturally cross paths and encounter them, the pinnacle mission and the overall goal should be pertaining to leading that person or persons to the true in-depth understanding of themselves, mentally, physically, and spiritually and how they connect and reflect their godhead (Ori), their ancestors (Egun); non-blood ancestrally related spirits (Fumbe); and deities, divinities, Orisas and oracles of whatever ancestrally navigated, indigenous or derivative spiritual systems they find themselves ancestrally led to. I guess this would be the case in a perfect world. But unfortunately this is not the case today. Now we have to deal with the microwave minded mentality generation with so many, so eager to oblige, who has time for spiritual priorities and preliminaries when the potential devotee is so ready to side-step them? Who has time to pass go and collect the few hundreds of dollars here and there in the spiritual growing process of the devotee when they can side step, shortcut, and run right into the arena of initiation with no knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, tempering or training? I’m sure this is welcomed at thousands of dollars a pop.
If one can make thousands of dollars pertaining to one initiate in a few days time or hundreds of thousands of dollars pertaining to multiple initiates in a few weeks, who has time to nickel and dime through the prioritized preliminary stages of spiritual growth and development? Especially how they pertain to today, the modern day. Who needs the conscious understanding of how to grow and progress self, family, and others mentally, physically, spiritually, sexually, and financially? We don’t need that type of knowledge and know-how, DO WE…??? So many want it quick, fast and in a hurry falling victim to public, social forums like the internet, the world community for the new millennium generations has turned into a real live circus, a peddlers square, so many clowning ready to sell you any label, sticker, tag, title or cultural identity that you desire for a price.
The last time I checked it was all about the ancestors and those of us who have been sent here to this marketplace to continue that which they started. How did we ever get to this point of blatant disregard of the ancestors? Where did this unrealistic obsession come from? You don’t have to take my word for it, just open up your eyes wide and take a look around you and start to see who is clearly benefiting from the madness, who the peddlers and circus clowns really are. It ‘s time to stop spending so much time, energy, and effort in the attempt to take on the external appeal of that which cannot be internalize and manifested on all levels.
Time to take two steps back and re-evaluate whose agenda you have been participating in bringing to fruition. So that you can come to a clear understanding of how to take three steps forward in the name of your ancestors and the reason for which you were sent here in the first place. And seek the parallels to see if all your time, energy, efforts and money has been benefiting you or someone else and is lining up to your ancestors agenda. Know and understand, from the time your Mother gave birth to you, a day was going to come that we would be responsible, and in our transition, ancestrally accountable. Let every man and woman be responsible for his/her own words and actions. For the spiritual apocalypse is coming. All those responsible for the madness will be held accountable for the madness that they have created in the name of greed. Will you be standing in the aftermath?
