The first appearance is the everlasting impression. Here is another year of uncertainties and division with wars, battles, debts, liars and not-so-honest people, economic difficulty, bankruptcies, close friends who are now separated friends, divorces, infectious diseases, bloodshed, iku, and so on. The MOTHERS are not happy with the destruction of the earth, women, and the womb. Ifa said that there is too much cruelty to women and children of all cultures. Ifa said that Orunmila is the one who believes that people are totally out of control and need mending. Over a period of time, people have been whitewashing Ifa and Orisa to only destroy them. People are continuously leaving spirituality on the fence as they dip into many other religions. Yes, you may speak and do whatever you like. At the end of the day, let’s leave crazy and mental illness out of the equation. Many of us have to accept the facts that we might not be as smart as we claim. Ifa speaks about how we are repeating the lessons we have not learned from the past. For example, preparing and growing food. Or taking good care of our health as well as our elders. There is an old saying, “when the old woman dies the library burns down.” We have to listen and learn from our elders. Now, we are here again with the same problems as yesterday as we move towards a new day in the future. No one knows who is who because no one is honest and truthful. The MOTHERS will help Orunmila fix and separate as they protect the women and children from the crazy and confused. At the end of the day, it is the same old story that said “your head got you into this mess and your head will get you out” because you are your own worst enemy. You have make it work for you in a positive way. Try getting out of your way and pray a lot.
