"Commitment is an action. You agree to do something and you do it. But commitment is also an emotional state, as in you are committed to a belief, a movement or a cause. Either way, it is only a fool who commits to illusions, shadows and falsehoods. For this reason, the Yoruba are fond of singing, 'No religion! Oh ye! No religion will prevent us from performing our ancestral rites. We WILL perform our family rites.' The Ancestral Promise supersedes all other commitments. It is the Ancestral Promise that enables orisa lifestyle to remain the intact, in spite of thousands of miles and hundreds of years of separation. Our commitment is absolute and will never be compromised. Orisa is eternal. We will be here forever. Live the medicine!"
