"A kì í kọ́'ni ká mọ ti'nú ẹni" You can teach a person but you can't know his thoughts. This is what prompts the elders to declare that What is being done is known only by the doer. We see one another, and observe each other's behavior, but often fail to share true intimacy. It seems logical to teach one another through long conversations or seek relationship solutions through divination. And while these are clearly effective ways to facilitate harmony, they only address half of the problem, the external half. More exactly, let's say that there are two paths of OrisaLifestyle, the right hand path and left hand path.
The right-hand path is driven by the tangible aspects of devotion; verses, rituals and icons. The left-hand path is more concerned with the intangible aspects of devotion; intuition, dreams and essence. Both paths are worthy. Both paths are necessary. But transformation really depends on your ability to master the left-hand path, which is focused on your inner world. Do you ever wonder why you don't change? This is not the same as blaming yourself, repressing your truth or turning your life upside down. I am talking about getting down to the core of your experience; how you think, sense and feel the world. What is your internal relationship to the deities, the witches and the ancestor? How do you respond to their energies when they make their presence known?
The left hand path is the way of Personal Priesthood. In my course, 16 Essential Traits of Personal Priesthood, you'll gain access to hundreds of practices that promote internal development. The benefit of the course is that it will help you to clarify your consciousness in ways that will enable you to:
1. Define your purpose more clearly.
2. Reduce your fear of uncertainty.
3. Increase your capacity to experience true intimacy with yourself and the people you serve.
