Ifa says in ODU OTURA ‘GBE:
Agbe maa gb’owun mi r’okun
Aluko maa gb’owun mi r’osa’
Odidere maa gb’owun mi re’Wo Ile, ati bee bee lo
Agbe should boost one’s pronouncement across the ocean
Aliko should echo one’s pronouncement across the sea
Odidere should reverberated one’s pronouncement homewards
COMMENT: your neighbor’s condition may be the same as yours. We have to learn to be kind and supportive and be the foundation for each other. There will be time when we have to be the life jacket for others in serious times.
Ifa is telling us that we need to have tolerance to attract great wealth, happiness, blessings, victory and success in all our ventures.

Let my sacrifice be accepted
Ela let my ritual goes to the heaven above
the dog that refuses to heed the spiritual advise
become Elegbara’s dog
the fat ram that I warned which remained adamant and stubborn
become an Esu’s ram
the person who refuses to heed the spiritual counsel
should be left to his or her foolishness
he or she will suffer the consequence of his or her action and bring woos to his life and destruction to the destiny of his or her generation.
This divine Ifa oracle for Ogun the god of iron
and open Ifa divination to other great divinities in the cosmos
while he and other divinities were about to go to the market of tolerance
they were advised that the market they intend to go
they should keep two thousand cowries, the traditional money
Ogun the god of iron
the great fighter in battle
the great chief of ejemu oluwonran
a powerful mad man
a glitteringly sharpened sword that baffles
The old man believes, no creatures either seen or unseen, either human or ghost have the capacities to disturb him on the entrance gate of heaven or earth, not to talk of the ordinary gate of the earthily market.
Ogun decided not to keep any money. On the day of the market, Ogun the god of Iron prepared and went with other divinities to the market . On reaching the gate, he met a dog, who was the chief guard of the gate of the market.
The dog as a guard knew Ogun very well. He knew Ogun as the god of iron and also knew the evil side of Ogun as a creature without tolerance. The dog then asked Ogun the two thousand cowries money as the entrance fees of the market. Ogun responded that the dog should know he is not human, but divinities and he should not be disturbed by any man or other creature.
The dog advised Ogun to comply with the rules and regulation, that anyone who intend to go into the market must pay the entrance fees and that Ogun should not be furious. The dog advised Ogun, but the later did not heed to the advised, he Ogun had decided to force his way into the market without paying the amount. Ogun told the chief guard to quit the entrance to avoid his fury.
In the process, a fight and strife ensued. Ogun beheaded the dog, not knowing that there were more dogs in hiding to fight him immediately. After beheading, two more dogs appeared, and attacked Ogun. Ogun killed the two. As he was killing them, more dogs appeared, they torn the cloth of Ogun and also bite him.
Ogun killed more dogs than ever seen, but more dogs continue to find his way to meet and attack Ogun , until Ogun ran to the nearest bush to cover himself with palm frond . That was how Ogun covered his nudity through palm frond or palm leave from the nearest palm tree.
By the time Ogun came back with the intention of going into market to carry out his commercial activities , the market had been closed, no one was in the market. Ogun lost out in the race of physical success, and human progress because of intolerance.
Ogun the most valiant and bravest divinties forfeited the gain of the market and the reward of commercial activities. Intolerance made Ogun to lose his cloth, honor and dignity, however he was forced to be using palm frond till today , according to the popular song
What is the cloth of Ogun ? Mariwo ( palm frond)
What is the cloth of Ogun ? Mariwo is the cloth, mariwo is indeed the cloth.
Ogun become a clothless divinity because of intolerance.
