Elementary Question of the day:

If this is my path why can't I find my Ori myself?

That's all I'm wondering. I'm trying to grasp this understanding, but people feel that I am being disrespectful for asking.

That is the basics of the Ori which is to 'know your higher self' - so yes please explain what you are asking in greater detail.

Are you trying to find Ori without the assistance of the Orishas or people?

Peace

Hope this helps

Well there was a guy who came to speak to my religious class on the Orishas, but he ended up speaking a lot about worshipping your personal Ori via alter, cocoa butter, prayer, etc. I asked him how could I find my Ori and he said your Ori is your destiny sort of speak, the only way to get a correct reading on your destiny is through a Babalow (spelling). Then later he spoke of how all people have direct line to the spirit world, egun, orishas through the Ori. They are always there, but we must take the first step, through Ori worship. So then I asked "if I already have a direct line to the spirit world through my Ori or my destiny what is the reading for and wouldn't I be better off finding it myself ?" That pissed him off because my question didn't get answered he just said don't question my traditions like that.

I'm just confused about what the Babalow(sp) would tell me? And why can't I figure out what they would tell me on my own if this is my path?

The guy was very confusing he would use Ori and Destiny interchangeable then describe them separately. Then he would speak about the Ori and Orishas and it was kind of like okay what are you talking about lol. So if sound confused its because I am.

So how would you go about connecting to your ORI?

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
