This morning I woke up and felt inspired to study. I opened my notes to a section from

Awo Fa'Lokun Fatunmbi about the correlation between the emerald tablets and the Odu
Owarin Meji, he says; "Owarin is the confusion caused by the trickster symbolized here as
darkness". This caused me to think of the difference between the Viking god Loki and the
Hindu god Ganesh. Where as Loki brings in confusion and darkness in order to perpetuate
darkness itself, which is banished by the righteous justice of Thor (?), Ganesh is lord
over forms of darkness as thier wingman while at the same time keeping them at bay as a
mouse before his foot. In Lucumi and Ifa, Esu (Eshu Elegbara) is both the manifestation
of darkness as well as the force necessary to remove it from ones experience. I am not so
well versed on the first two geisers of the godhead, so I will stick with Esu, and then
move into the biblical texts for the purpose of giving strength and foundation to this
study for my family who is devout to Christ.
Darkness causes confusion, in Osa Meji the witches of the iyami, the dark manifestations
from all previous incarnations of ever unfolding patterns from the pool of light, deep
within the banished akashik of timelessness before and beyond our own experience, have to
bow before our current unfolding fractal and beg to be admitted into this experience.
When veiwed thru the light of Oworin, we see a purpose for this unfolding of darkness. It
allows for evolution, as the confusion is a wind meant to sweep as well as be swept out
by the awakened one, energies manifesting in the forms of decay and halting inner or, in
the material world, ones evolution. It is Esu's task as the keeper of gates as well as
Lord of all forms of darkness, and communicator to both bring in this darkness and assist
us in dispelling it. This is one thing which perturbs me about the Lucumi priesthood. As
Esu within is a reflection and reflector of ones own heart, rather than ones internal
image of thier Ori, why does the priesthood always divine for clients with Esu Eleggua,
while they themselves rarely focus the concious energy towards clearing out thier own
internal darknesses. What useful purpose, not that the words fall to the floor, but what
useful purpose it it to forsake the multiple pools of fractal light forms of conciousness
for the sake of allowing chaos, multiplied by the aparthied of a priests spirituality in
the face of consumerism, to speak up for each and every client?
The darkness is a knock on the hearts door, meant to inspire one to reach for higher
levels, funfun (lighter/good) fractals of conciousness with which to move the mountains
in thier own and others lives. What good is a temple full of diviners whose own heart
aperes are cast before the swine of infidelity to spirit? Sure, there are plenty of good
priests out in the world, I do not deny them, I ask however, how many of you really
divine for Ela, or even in the name of Oshun or Obatala or Inle, rather than as a stroke
to your own egos? I am sure you can connect with the speaking egungun of a past
priesthood, but as the leigon cast into my muerto stick reminds me... "We are fuckin
sneaky... how many of us sound good on the left hand side... Which side whispers gently
and why can the right hand not see what we are doing when we whisper darkness in the
right side of the temple?"
Ori is the finite light, this is the individual flame held and surrounded by the darkness
of contractive expanse. The vessel of Eniyanis the finite darkness, or the "flesh". Our
consiousness is the flame of the word on our heartbeat, the law of light, Ela, while the
contractions around our Ori, our body, Eni, personhood, are the darkness manifest in a
percieved macrocosm. Eniyan is ever flowing through the contractive duality of existance
seeking out the infinite light of Iponri, it is Esu's task as helper to Ori to assist us
each in realizing our own darkness, through confusion, in order that we may choose to
evolve and attain a deeper grounding in the foundation of the Law of Light.
I know that this short study isn't all that great, and I will go back over it again
eventually, but this is a bit of what has been going on in my head, and came thru my
personal study time today. Mojuba Olorun, oni odun mocuedun. I am a stranger in the eyes
of the priesthood, yet I have made my vows to god, and not to them. Maferefun Corale, you
are the stumbling block before me, and yet you are the key to my own, and many others
evolution. I'm gonna let my light shine.
As a final note before some bible quotes, when my car was towed, even the little notes I
had printed up from Ifa forums were lost. I only have a small notebook of WEAPONS FOR
OCHA with me now, and I studied my ass off. While the priesthood calls me an addict for
smoking weed and having done a bad acidtrip, I declare the first miracle of Esua ben
Josheph was water to wine bitches... So go on and whine. Ahh, darkness is a stumbling
block, if we do not take it as an oppritunity.
Ezekiel 45: 9-12
9 “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: You have gone far enough, princes of Israel!
Give up your violence and oppression and do what is just and right. Stop dispossessing my
people, declares the Sovereign LORD. 10 You are to use accurate scales, an accurate
ephah[i] and an accurate bath.[j] 11 The ephah and the bath are to be the same size, the
bath containing a tenth of a homer and the ephah a tenth of a homer; the homer is to be
the standard measure for both. 12 The shekel[k] is to consist of twenty gerahs. Twenty
shekels plus twenty-five shekels plus fifteen shekels equal one mina.[l]
Hosea 4: 6-8
6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.
“Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also reject you as my priests;
because you have ignored the law of your God,
I also will ignore your children.
7 The more priests there were,
the more they sinned against me;
they exchanged their glorious God[b] for something disgraceful.
8 They feed on the sins of my people
and relish their wickedness
Ezekiel 3: 1-6, 17-19, 24-27
1 He told me, "Son of man, eat what you see. Eat this book. Then go and speak to the
family of Israel." 2-3 As I opened my mouth, he gave me the scroll to eat, saying, "Son
of man, eat this book that I am giving you. Make a full meal of it!" So I ate it. It
tasted so good—just like honey. 4-6 Then he told me, "Son of man, go to the family of
Israel and speak my Message. Look, I'm not sending you to a people who speak a
hard-to-learn language with words you can hardly pronounce. If I had sent you to such
people, their ears would have perked up and they would have listened immediately.
17-19 "Son of man, I've made you a watchman for the family of Israel. Whenever you hear
me say something, warn them for me. If I say to the wicked, 'You are going to die,' and
you don't sound the alarm warning them that it's a matter of life or death, they will die
and it will be your fault. I'll hold you responsible. But if you warn the wicked and they
keep right on sinning anyway, they'll most certainly die for their sin, but you won't
die. You'll have saved your life.
24-26 Then the Spirit entered me and put me on my feet. He said, "Go home and shut the
door behind you." And then something odd: "Son of man: They'll tie you hand and foot with
ropes so you can't leave the house. I'll make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth
so you won't be able to talk and tell the people what they're doing wrong, even though
they are a bunch of rebels.
27 "But then when the time is ripe, I'll free your tongue and you'll say, 'This is what
God, the Master, says:...' From then on it's up to them. They can listen or not listen,
whichever they like. They are a bunch of rebels!"
"If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~Thomas Jefforson
