Verbatim translation of Baba Oduduwa´s Teachings here in Mexico. PD. Sorry for any mistakes in my translation, its my second language. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Baba Oduduwa taking about GOD: Whats the diference between Olodumare and Olofin Orun?
OLODUMARE: This is the Unconscious Divine Aspect of GOD, its God Almighty, our prayers can't reach up to this aspect of GOD (as Neutral Universal Energy), because it doesn't have any Consciousness at all, its Completely Neutral, the True Power it's in the NEUTRAL aspect, it's the Universal Energy. The Power is Power, the Power or Universal Energy doesn't know if it's Good or Bad, its Universal Energy, period. That's why this Neutral Universal Energy can be tap for Good or Bad use, by the White Magician or Black Wizard.
The Being Almighty, Don't have Ears, that's why he can't answer our prayers, that why they say that Olodumare can't hear your prayers. The Angles are the ones who can hear our Prayers, the Angels can create wonderful things, because that's how they were created.
Olodumare creates different Energies, Angels (Divine Beings), etc…
You can't Invoke Energies that are more higher that what you need.
OLOFI (OLOFIN ORUN): OLOFI is the Supreme GOD, that possesses all the Powers of all the Orishas together. OLOFI created himself, He has Modified the Behavior of OLODUMARE, in order to create the Orishas. OLOFI it's the one that forms the Energy that one knows as GOD. OLOFI created himself out of "nothing". OLOFI is the Conscious Power of GOD, THE CREATIVE POWER. The first Power that was venerated on Earth was OLOFI, it was represented as a huge rock in very ancient times. OLOFI formed himself alone, that how he became GOD. OLOFI has a Secret and Sacred Signature (Sigil), in that symbol is manifested the true Power of creation.
OLOFIN means the Owner of the Secrets, Olofin Orun means the Owner of the Secrets of the Universe.
OLOFI ELA: He was the first Son of OLOFI, he was Created Immortal and Omnipotent.
Note: He is also known as ELA. Other calls him the Spirit of Purity:
OLOFI ALA: Was the name given in the Osha tradition to Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. His real name was Yosef. He is the smallest child of OLOFI. He is Eternal and Divine.
Many Messiah have existed in many traditions, in the Hindu tradition, in the Yoruba Tradition, etc…
Note: Oduduwa was the Patriarch and a kind of Messiah for the Yoruba Tradition, a type of Christ. He revealed that he lived 20,000 years ago, when he gathered the 16 Yoruba Kings to form the Yoruba Nation. These 16 Kings were the 15 Obatalas emanations of Obatala essense, plus one man, that man was OGUN, the hard worker.
OLOFIN AIYE is the Owner of the Secrets of the World, that's Baba Oduduwas title.
Note: That's why in the Lukumi Tradition they called Jesus as OLOFI, but Baba Oduduwa revealed the real complete name, OLOFIN ALA. Jesus was initiated in IFA, in his lost years, besides traveling to india, egypt, he also went to Yorubaland to receive initiation and techings. This was told to us by baba Oduduwa and the spirit of Tata G:.
OMILEFUN, there's some really deep stuff in this post, and I agree you should start a series of hubs and start with the very basics of this culture and beliefs. I'm not sure that there is much documentation of about this, and you could actually be a very important key to preserving such information.
The spiritual aspects that you write about are very metaphysically based, and are similar to a lot of present metaphysical spiritualists' beliefs. Therefore, I think there are probably quite a few people out there who would be fascinated and enlightened about such info.
Great stuff. Write some hubs and welcome to hubpages!
