Orisa Worship is Work & Service
Orisa is synonymous with productivity. Above and beyond their colors, prayers, songs, sacrifices and dances, the deities govern all the disciplines needed to sustain a community. Stated differently, Orisa Lifestyle is characterized by collective work and responsibility. Worship is community building through work and service. Here, let us consider what Ifa says:
Idisaawo baa je
- Holy Odu IdiSa
While all the orisa are associated with vocations, Orunmila is most closely associated with care giving and support. He is the deity who even used care to become crowned the king of the orisa. This is essential to Orisa Lifestyle because it requires you to give serious thought to who you serve.
When you are certain about your natural gifts and talents, in conjunction with who you serve, you are poised to live the medicine that will heal your life and heal the lives of those you are destined to serve. Aboru aboye abosise.
