TALKS: 04 “HOW MY (SCARY) AWAKENING HAPPENED PT. 1”

Press Play ► This talk was surprisingly easier to do than I thought it would be. Talking about my awakening has always been a difficult task because I could not do it without crying at some point. It was a hard period in my life, but there is a lot about the awakening process that many people should know, and so, as I usually do, I will teach you all about the process through a tale of my own jarring experience. Now, this is not how all awakening experiences go, but most of them often occur through something traumatic.

TALKS 01: “HOW DO WE FIND OUR PURPOSE?”

PRESS PLAY ► Most human beings on this Earth wonder what is their purpose and why are they here? There are so many questions that the human has as he journeys along life’s way. How does he find himself? What is to become of his life? Why is he here? Our mission on this Earth as individuals has a collective role to play, and your role is greater than what you think it is, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

TALKS 03: “WHAT IS YOUR ‘ORI’?”

Press Play ► Ori (lit. head in Yoruba) is our biggest divinity; our inner consciousness, the “higher you”. Yorubas go as far as calling the Ori an Orisha (deity) on its own, and it is. There is a song they sing in Yoruba when serving Ori and it is (very loosely) translated as “Only your Ori (head) can make you have a long life, no King can decide if you shall live long or not, it is only your Ori that has holds authority over you.”

TALKS 02: “WHAT ROLE DO ENEMIES PLAY?”

Press Play ► I’ve spoken about this before on the Embracing Spirituality blog. The number of fights I’ve gone through in my lifetime, what I discuss in this short talk might be surprising – but it is the bitter truth. Enemies are not just big roadblocks we learn lessons from or fights meant to make us stronger, though they are definitely that as well. However, the role some enemies play is even more important to who we are and who we become.
