Worldwide Religion, Covenant of Circumcision, Origen Adamantius, Diodorus Siculus

 WORLDWIDE RELIGION & THE COVENANT OF CIRCUMCISION PART 2

Even the Covenant of Circumcision has an Egyptian origin. Origen wrote in Latin (Nemo apud Aegyptios aut geometriam studuit, aut Astrologiae mysteria indagavit, nisi circumcisio suscepta esset). In English, (No one among the Egyptians either studied Geometry or investigated the secrets of Astronomy without undertaking circumcision). 

Carved Inscriptions by the Ancient Egyptians

ORIGEN: Origen Adamantius 184-253 AD

Origen of Alexandria (c. 184 – c. 253), also known as Origen Adamantius, was an early Christian scholar, ascetic, and theologian born in Alexandria and spent the first half of his career there. 

He was a prolific writer who wrote roughly 2,000 treatises on multiple branches of theology, including textual criticism, biblical exegesis and hermeneutics, homiletics, and spirituality. Origen was influential in early Christian theology, apologetics, and asceticism. And they referred to him as "the greatest genius the early church ever produced".

DIODORUS: Diodorus Siculus, Diodoros Sikeliotes, (100 BCE) 

Diodorus of Sicily was a Greek historian. He is known for writing the monumental universal history Bibliotheca Historica, much of which survives between 60 and 30 BCE. He witnessed and recorded the procession of six orders of Egyptian priests celebrating their graduation in his lifetime.

THE CURRICULUM OF THE EGYPTIAN MYSTERY SYSTEM

The Education of the Egyptian Priests According to Their Orders. 

The Prophetes Illustrated

From Diodorus, Herodotus and Clement of Alexandria, we learn that there were six Orders of Egyptian Priests, and each Order had to master a certain number of the books of Hermes/Thoth/Nri/Orunmila. Clement has described a procession of the Priests, calling them by their Sects and stating their qualifications as follows:

First comes the Singer Odus, bearing an instrument of music. He has to know by heart two of the books of Hermes/Thoth; one containing the hymns of the gods, and the other, the allotment of the king's life.

Then Horoscopus, carrying a Horologium or sundial and a palm branch, symbols of Astronomy. He has to know four of the books of Hermes/Thoth, which deal with Astronomy.

Then comes the Hierogrammat, with feathers on his head, a book in his hand, and a rectangular case with writing materials, i.e., the writing ink and the reed. He has to know the hieroglyphics, cosmography, geography, astronomy, the topography of Egypt, the sacred utensils and measures, the temple furniture and the lands.

Next, the Stolistes carry the cubit of justice and the libation vessels. Stolistes must know the books of Hermes/Thoth that deal with the slaughter of animals.

Next comes the Prophetes carrying loaves of bread and a water vessel. The Prophetes is the President of the temple. He must know the ten Hieratic books containing the laws and doctrines concerning the Gods (mystic theology) and the whole education of the Priests. The books of Hermes/Thoth are 42 in number and are necessary. Thirty-six of these books are a must-know by the Order.

Finally, the Pastophori must be well versed in six out of the forty-two books of Thoth. The six books required are about medical instructions and procedures. It deals with physiology, male and female diseases, anatomy, drugs, and instruments. The books of Hermes were well known to the ancient world and were known to Clement of Alexandria, who lived at the beginning of the third century A.D.

THE STRUCTURES OF THE MAIN RELIGIONS IN THE WORLD 

The ancient structures of world religions are as follows: 

Logos, Ein Sof, Brahman, Allah, Tao and the Void. 

Ein Sof Aur Illustrated

The Logo evolved to Gnosticism, Inner Mysteries, the Bible/Literalism, Outer Mysteries and Christianity. 

Ein Sof became the Kabbalah, Talmud, Torah and Judaism. 

The Void turned to Vayrayana, Hinayana, Mahayana and Buddhism. 

Tao changed to Chuan (Zen), Mystical Taoism, Folk Taoism and finally, Taoism. 


Allah developed into Batin, Sufi/Shiite, Five Pillars, Koran, Zahir and Al-Islam. 

Brahman progressed into Tantra, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Folk Hinduism/Bhakti and Hinduism.

Ein Sof, or Eyn Sof, in Kabbalah, is understood as God before any self-manifestation in the production of any spiritual realm, probably derived from Solomon ibn Gabirol's term, "the Endless One". Ein Sof is "unending", "no end", or infinity. The Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah are, Keter, Tiferet, Shekhinah, Hokhmah, Hesed, Nezah, Yesod, Hod, Din and Binah. Or "forward", "backwards", "right", "left", "down", "up", "light", "darkness", "good" and "evil".

What is the light of Ein Sof?

This light is the origin of all creation and lower lights, called the "Ohr Ein Sof" ("The light of the Infinite", or itself "The Infinite Light"). The Kabbalistic and Hasidic masters asked how there could be a revelation of God, in the Ohr Ein Sof before creation. 

Ten Sefirot of the Kabbalah

You may believe that everything in the Bible is literarily true and personally dictated to Moses, the Prophets and the Apostles by God. You are at liberty to hold that opinion. However, I beg to differ, but I believe the Bible is divinely inspired. Since inspiration always comes through the human vehicle, it is prone to distortion. Anybody inspired can only express it in the first language spoken, including the religion practised. 

Religion is a tree with many branches of different lengths, thicknesses and foliages. Realising the affinities between world religions will enable any human being to take a giant step towards spiritual enlightenment. If all you know is the doctrines of your religion, then you are more prone to believe everything about it. However, bothering to learn a bit about other religions will make you a seeker. And ascend above others in your chosen religion. 

THE PLAGIARISATION OF ANCIENT TEXTS BY MODERN RELIGIONS 

Can we find affinity in Egyptian mythology that are forerunners of Christian mythology? For example, are Egyptian and Babylonian lore elements found in the Jesus myth? The Enuma Elish and Gilgamesh Epics Tablets and the Biblical flood myth. 

The Immaculate Conception, stories about Horus, Bel-Marduk and Jesus, the Ten Commandments, and the Comparative Works of Pharaoh Amenemope vs. King Solomon of Israel. Including Paraoh Akhanaten's Hymn vs. Plsam 104.

AFFINITIES IN THE STORIES OF HORUS, BEL-MARDUK AND JESUS

The Egyptian Horus-Osiris/Assyrian-Babylonian Bel-Marduk Myth Parallels to the Christian Jesus Myth:

1. The Annunciation of the Birth of Horus 1(a). The Annunciation of the Birth of Jesus

Eye of Horus Illustrated and Dymistified

2. The Immaculate Conception/Impregnation of a Virgin by God(s) 2(a). The Immaculate Conception/Impregnation of a Virgin by God

Citing Jackson citing Massey, we have the following four scenes:
1. The Annunciation
The god Thoth announces to a virgin, Isis, the impending birth of her son, Horus.
2. The Immaculate Conception
The god Kneph (Holy Ghost) and the goddess Hathor hold crosses, the sign of life, to the head and nostrils of Isis and mystically impregnate
her.

3. The Birth of the Child God
The mother, Isis, sits on a midwife's stool, and the newborn infant, Horus, is held by attendants.
4. The Adoration
The infant Horus receives homage from the gods and the Three Kings, the Magi, who offer him gifts.

Jackson cites Samuel Sharpe in Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian-Christianity [London: J. R. Smith, 1879, p. 19.] thus: In this [set of engravings], we have the Annunciation, the Conception, the Birth, and [the] Adoration as described in the first and the second chapter of Luke's Gospel.

Critics should remember that the scenes described are carved in stone on the walls of the Temple at Luxor and stand as the documented source of mythical elements of the Horus myth.

3. The Birth of Horus 3. The Birth of the Messiah

4. The Adoration of Horus by Three Kings/Magi Bearing Gifts 4(a). The Adoration of Yashua by Three Kings/Magi Bearing Gifts

AFFINITIES  BETWEEN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND  NEGATIVE CONFESSION (42 DENIALS) IN THE OSIRIAN DRAMA PAPYRUS OF ANI 

Excerpt from the Ten Commandments:

1. You should have no (Akhair) other Eloheem except me.

2. You will not make for yourself any (Fehsel), idol at all, of any (Temoonaw), likeness in the (Shawmahyim) skies (Mahal) above or that in the whole planet earth from beneath or in the waters underneath the planet.

3. You will not (Shawkhaw) prostrate yourself to them nor (Awbad) enslave yourself to them, for I a Yahuwa Eloheek. I am a (Qannaw) jealous (El) one (Fawqad) visiting the (Awwone) iniquity of the (Awb) father upon the (Bane) children up to the (Shillaysh) third, and (Ribbayah) fourth generation of them that (Sawnay) hate me.

The Weighing of the Heart Depiction

4. You should not take the (Shawme) name of a Yahuwa Eloheek and use it (shaww) falsely for a Yahuwa will not hold him (Nawqaw) guiltless, that takes his (Shame) name and use it (shaww) falsely.

Excerpt from Negative Confession, Papyrus of Ani, the Book of the Dead:

A Tiny example of the Egyptian version from the Book of the Dead, according to Sir E. A. W. Budge.

Hail, Usekh-nemmt, who comest forth from Anu, I have not sinned.

Hail, Hept-khet, who comest forth from Kher-aha, I have not committed robbery with violence.

Hail, Fenti, who comest forth from Khemenu, I have not committed theft.

Hail, Arfi-em-khet, who comest forth from Suat, I have not stolen the property of God.

Hail, Neba, who comest and goest, I have not uttered lies.

AFFINITIES BETWEEN PHARAOH AMENEMOPE AND KING SOLOMON  

The Comparison below was but a few of the selected sayings of the so-called "Proverbs Of King Solomon" of Israel. However, the entire Psalms "Songs Of King Solomon", including the Torah, are full of direct copies of works written word for word as Egyptian sayings and teachings. 

Pharaoh Amem-Em-Ope

The Teachings of Egyptian Pharaoh Amem-Em-Ope:

"Give thine ear and hear what I say, apply thine heart, let them rest in the casket of thy belly, to act as a peg upon thy tongue. Consider these thirty chapters, that delight and instruct, knowledge how to answer him that speaketh and how to carry back report to one that sent it.

"Teachings of King Solomon" of Israel: Asia Minor, Proverbs (22) XXII 17 & (23) XXIII 14:

"Incline thine ear and hear the words, apply thine heart, to apprehend, for it is pleasant if thou keep them in thy belly, like a fixed peg upon thy lips. Have I not written for thee thirty sayings, of counsels and knowledge! that thou may make known truth to him that speaketh.

The Baptismal Ceremony of The Gospel Of The Egyptians:

The gospel of the Egyptians accurately known as the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit is a Sethian text. The Sethian text includes a baptismal ceremony describing the celebration of Sethian-gnostic baptism. Other gnostic texts refer to baptism and its importance.

This great name of yours is upon me, you self-conceived and lacking in nothing, independent, invisible to all except me, invisible to all. Who comprehends you in speech or praise? Knowing you made me mingled with your constancy. I have armed myself, wearing the armour of grace and light and become bright. 

Sethian Text, the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit

The mother was there for the loverly beauty of grace. So, I stretched out my two hands, formed from a circle of dazzling lights in my chest, and enabled form to the many beings produced in light beyond reproach. In truth, I shall declare your glory. I have comprehended you--yours, Jesus; look, eternal O, eternal E, Christ, O eternal realm *2, god of silence. 

I honour you faithfully. You are my place of rest, child, ESES, the E, formless ones existing within each other. And raising the person by whom you will purify me into your life, according to your imperishable name. So, the sweet smell of life lies in me. I have mixed it with water as a model for all the rulers. So that I may live in the peace of the saints and you who are forever, true.

Origin of Worldwide Religion, Kybalion, Hermetic Principles, Thoth, Ifa, Taoists, Shinto text

 THE ORIGIN OF WORLDWIDE RELIGION PART 1

Alchemists believe in the Hermetic principles.

Hindus believe the Veddas are divinely revealed and inspired as any Christian, Jew or Muslim. 

Al-Islamists believe the Quran is celestially inspired. 

Illustrated Alchemist

Buddhists believe that their Sutras are of heavenly or Bhuddhic origin. 

The Japanese believe that the ancient Shinto text is also of celestial origin. 

Taoists believe in Tao, the Great Mother: empty yet inexhaustible, giving birth to infinite worlds from nothingness.

The Yoruba people believe that Olodumare is the supreme God, and his Disciples, Guardians and Angels are deific.

Which one of all these ancient texts and oral traditions can we believe? 

Is Christ a human being like Krishna, Horus, Bel-Marduk, Buddha, Ramana Maharshi or the Prophet Muhammad because they all had a colossal experience of cosmic consciousness?

CONCLUSION 

EXPLORING THE CONCEPT OF RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

Do you think you have got a monopoly on God? The world population census is over 8 billion, with at least 6.5 billion religious people, including prayers. Why should God answer your prayer or treat you as a favourite over the other 6.5 billion people? Why do you think you are special? Have you ever wondered why your prayers sometimes stayed unanswered, all the time or a few times? 

These apply to people of different faiths incorporating denominations. Have you ever questioned your faith, or even as far as to change religion or denomination? What mental power does your modern-day Pastor, Reverend, Imam, Mullah, Priest, Bishop, Guru, Prophet, or Pope have over you? Religious books in the hands of confused holy men are like a loaded sub-machine gun that has claimed many victims and will continue to do so. 

What are the answers or the answers? If you are looking for magic, we are sorry to disappoint you. If you are seeking logic, well, come on in. We will break all the answers to all these questions into bite-size; by using history, religion, philosophy, occultism, and psychology. The word Bible came from the Greek word Biblos, derived from the Egyptian word Papyrus, paper or book.

In ancient Egypt lived Champions and Masters never surpassed, and seldom equalled, during the centuries that have taken their processional flight since the days of the Great Hermes. Thoth was the first and oldest teacher of knowledge in human history. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks called him the God of Wisdom. Thoth was the author of The Emerald Tablets.

THE KYBALION AND HERMETIC PRINCIPLES 

The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding"— The Kybalion. From old Egypt comes the fundamental esoteric and occult teachings that strongly influenced the philosophies of all races, nations, and peoples for several thousand years. Egypt, the home of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, was the birthplace of Hidden Wisdom and Mystic Teachings. From her Secret Doctrine, all nations have borrowed. 

The Eight Principles of the Natural Laws

The Kybalion is the oldest constitution of religious concepts. Let us begin with the Eight Natural Laws of Truth for all things created. The Kybalion is the mystical literature that every human being must possess. It is a crucial literature in Alchemy and more important than all the revered holy books. And when the eight principles in the Kybalion are understood and applied with devotion, prosecuting the game of life from the top is attainable.

THE EIGHT NATURAL LAWS OF TRUTH 

The Eight Natural Laws of Truth in the Kybalion are Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, Gender and CARE, and the encapsulation of the seven.

The principle of Mentalism specifies that the universe is mental and all things in the cosmos reside in the mind of All.

The principle of Correspondence is that what was unknown will become knowable by applying what we know.

The principle of vibration is that everything vibrates, even though visually imperceptible.

The principle of Polarity is that everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; hot and cold are the same.

The principle of Rhythm asserted the pendulum of life involved high and low, conquest and defeat, and inflow and outflow.

The principle of Cause and Effect ascertains that it is better to cause your effect than to be affected by the causations of others.

The principle of Gender is that every human has a masculine and feminine part in their brain and the power of creation on the physical plain. 

The principle of CARE encapsulates the other seven, and without it, nothing will manifest.

Mofield of Alchest truths are half-false, and most falsehoods are a half-truth. Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are half-truths. All paradoxes are reconcilable.

THE HERMETIC PHILOSOPHY 

Understanding and practising these principles enable any human being to play the game of life successfully. Even to this day, we use the term hermetic in the sense of secret, sealed so that nothing can escape; etc., and this is because the followers of Hermes always observed the principle of secrecy in their teachings. 

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

They did not believe in casting pearls before swine but held to the teaching of milk for babes; and meat for strong men, both of which maxims are familiar to readers of the Christian scriptures. 

The Egyptians incorporated both for centuries before the Christian era. And this policy of careful dissemination of the truth has always characterised Hermetics, even currently. 

The Hermetic Teachings are in all lands, among all religions. However, it has never identified with any particular country or religious sect. 

It is because of the warning of the ancient teachers against allowing the Secret Doctrine to become crystallised into a creed. The wisdom of this caution is apparent to all students of history.

But there were always a few faithful souls who kept alive the Flame, tending it carefully and not allowing its light to become extinguished. And thanks to these staunch hearts, and fearless minds, we have the truth still with us. However, it is not found in the religious dogma of books.

PROPHECIES OF DJEHUITI, THOTH, HERMES, OR TEHUTI 

Pure philosophy is spiritual striving through constant contemplation to attain the veritable knowledge of One-God Atum (concept of the divine Creator). But, now in philosophy, in times to come, no one will pursue philosophy with single-mindedness and purity of heart. Those with grudging and ungenerous temperaments will prevent humans from discovering the priceless gift of immortality. 

To love Atum in thought with a single-mindedness of the heart and follow the goodness of his will, is the essence of philosophy, unsullied by intrusive cravings for pointless opinions. But in times to come, clever, deceitful and uncandid intellectuals will mislead the minds of human beings away from pure philosophy. They will assert that our sacred devotion is ineffectual and that the sincere piety, uncandid, and sedulous service with which Kemetians honour Atum is waste without reward.

Kemet is an image of the heavens, and the cosmos dwells in its sanctuary. But, the gods will desert earth and return to heaven, abandoning the land that once stood as the home of spirituality. Kemet will be forsaken and desolate, bereft of the presence of the gods, overrun by foreigners that will neglect our sacred ways. Kemet is the holy land of temples and shrines, now full of corpses and funerals. The sacred Nile swelled with blood, and her waters fouled with gore.

The Ogdoad

Does this make you weep? There is worse to follow: This land was a spiritual teacher to all humankind, loved the gods with such devotion that they deigned to sojourn on earth, will exceed others in cruelty. The dead will outnumber the living, and the surviving Kemetian will be like men of another race. O Kemet! Nothing will remain of your religion but tall tales, which even your children refused to believe. Nothing left about your wisdom but old graven stone.

THE BEING OF ATUM (THE LIGHT IN OUR MIND)

The cosmos is the image of Atum; all goodness because it is also good. Bequeath me your awareness, and concentrate your thoughts, for the intelligence of Atum's existence requires deep insight, which comes as the gift of grace. The conception of Atum is complicated, and to define him is impossible. The imperfect and the impertinent cannot apprehend the eternally perfected. Atum is whole and constant, and he is motionless yet self-moving. Atum is immaculate, incorruptible and everlasting. 

Atum is light, the eternal source of energy, and the everlasting dispenser of life. Once power is dispenced, unending cosmic laws manage the supply. The cosmos' existence is within infinite energy. It is energy from which life issues, so it can't stop or be prone to destruction. It is contained and bound together by a timeless life force. The cosmos dispenses this life to all things within it.

SHINTOISM AND SHINTO TEXTS 

Shinto Texts

The Holy books of Shinto include the Kojiki (Records of Ancient Matters), the Nihon shoki, or Nihon-gi (Chronicles of Japan), the Kogoshūi (Gleanings of Ancient Works), and the Engi Shiki (Institutes of the Engi Period). These books are compilations of ancient myths and traditional teachings. And are orally passed on. 

Shinto means the way of the gods. Shintoism is an Ancient religion in Japan. It started around 1000 BCE but is still practised today by at least five million people. The followers of Shintoism believe that spiritual powers exist in the natural world.

Shinto has no founder or sacred scriptures like the sutras or the Bible. Propaganda and preaching are uncommon because Shinto is deeply rooted in the Japanese people and traditions. "Shinto gods" are called Kami.

TAOIST PHILOSOPHY 

The Ying and Yang

According to Lao Tzu, The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from craving, you realise the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and materialisation arise from the same source. This source is the mother of all secrets and the gateway to all understanding. The Tao is called the Great Mother: empty yet inexhaustible, it gives birth to infinite worlds. 

Purification is a must to reach this state of receptiveness to the energy around us. It is the essential process of alchemy. To "separate the subtle from the gross". We must overcome our lower, animal nature and cultivate the spiritual one. It is the ultimate goal of life and the destiny of everybody. 

We will reincarnate in our physical bodies until we achieve this transformation and graduate to the next level. If we knew what awaits us beyond this reality, we would stop in a heartbeat and get to work because the payoff is better than anything the physical world offers.

There are three bodies we must purify, which are physical, emotional, and mental. The secrets of alchemy are the methods used to purify these bodies. When the river is clean, the water can flow. This water is known as Kundalini. The Kundalini is the vital energy of transformation. 

It keeps our body healthy, and when it ascends to the pineal gland, it creates a mystical experience by creating DMT in our pineal gland. It is the energy generated in the body by transforming food into blood; and finally into the cerebral spinal fluid.

The goal is to retain this fluid by not ejaculating and raising it to the brain through yogic practices. Breathing is crucial for this, and there are many methods of channelling the breath to raise the Kundalini, known as pranayama.

THE PRINCIPLES OF IFA

Neither Olodumare nor Orunmila nor Ifa condones harbouring, using or trading human body parts, killing, lies and discrimination on behalf of the religion. This ancient religion taught us to live peacefully and coexist with our neighbours and foreigners, showing respect regardless of race, religion or creed. Instruction of Ifa from a divination session can direct an individual to perform an act of charity in a Temple, Mosque, Synagogue or Church.

The Concept of the Holy Trinity

Ogun is the head of the house of Awo. Ogun takes care of the human heads, Orunmila does the same for the skins, and Ifa looks after the eyes. Discrimination is a taboo in this ancient religion of worshipping the Trinity, containing three spiritual houses, with Olodumare (Supreme God) on top of the hierarchy.

However, the bitter irony is that it is the other way around, especially modern Christians and Al-Islamists. Those who snubbed others using their financial might or were ready to brutalise, violate or kill others in the name of their religion are suffering from Religious supremacy on baseless grounds.

Orunmila (god of Wisdom and Knowledge) is a messenger of Olodumare (the Supreme God). Orunmila brought the divination system from heaven to earth and introduced it to human beings. It was taboo to record Ifa's poetry and verses in a written form until recently. The old doctrine of the oral transfer of divination knowledge from mouth to ear is now waning.  Orunmila divided the world into three segments, containing the house of Orisha (Deities), Awo (Cults) and Ifa (Divination). 

Obatala

Ogun (the god of iron) is the leader of Ile Awo (the domain of the cults) and others to the residence of the Orishas. Traditional House of Worship International is a concept of Orunmila declared to the Yoruba tribes that unless their minds are united, he can not grant their requests after his departure. There are three different dress modes for each residence. Those from the house of Orisha can embellish their clothing with magical charms. As for Awo and Ifa dress code, the colour must be white. Telling lies while wearing the white robe is taboo. 

The symbolism of the colour white is to communicate purity and sincerity. Ifa's mode of worship demanded bowing, kneeling and touching the ground with the forehead, which predated the Al-Islamist technique for thousands of years. Saturday (Ojo Abameta) is chosen and separated into three rituals in Yorubaland. Morning is for the rituals of the Awos, the afternoon is for the Orishas, and the evening is for Ifa. And Olodumare will answer their prayer. 

There are fundamental differences between Babalawo (Ifa Priest),  Onishegun (Medicine Man) and Adaunshe (a Lone Wolf Medicine Man). A Babalawo uses and worships Ifa, Onishegun utilises herbs and adulates Osanyi (god of Medicine), younger brother of Orunmila, and the knowledge of Adahunse is probably hereditary.

Orunmila

The fundamental Ifa practitioners still adhered to the principle that when the ear is ready, the opening of the mouth occurs, from Babalawo to Babalawo and their descendants. The Odus (Galaxies, Chapters or Houses) of Ifa contains all situations, circumstances, actions and consequences based on the uncountable Eses (Holy Verses). Sacrifices are exchanges for human failures, and Ifa demanded that all Babalawo must be honest. 

Let us examine the story of Ikin and Opele (divination tools) and why one ranks above the other. What is the Opele in Ifa? The Opele is the minor divination tool utilised by Ifa priests for divination, believed to be an assistant or slave of Orunmila, who communicates his desires to the Babalawo and from the Babalawo back to Orunmila. 

The majority of daily divination work employs Opele as a tool of choice. In the story, Ikin and Opele were once human and are practising Babalawo. However, while Ikin executed his practice candidly, Opele got greedy, asking ten times what Ifa required for the sacrifices. However, Opele's odu transliteration is faster during multiple divination sessions, but Ikin is superior. The end of Part 1 and Part 2 will follow in a fortnight.

Yoruba, Japanese, Indian, Egyptian, and Chinese, Creation Story

Yoruba Creation Story

The difference between the Ifa creation story and Yoruba mythology is that the former predated the latter by thousands of years. The Yoruba mythology is the fourth stage of evolution. It is about cycles of existence, destruction and replenishment. However, there are still many affinities between the two stories.

Creation Illustration
Once upon a time, there was only the sky above, water and marshland below. Olorun (owner of heaven) ruled the sky, and the goddess Olokun ruled below the heaven. Obatala, another god, reflected upon this situation and then went to Olorun for permission to create dry land for all kinds of life forms to inhabit. After he got permission, he sought advice from Orunmila, the oldest son of Olorun and the god of prophecy and writing.

Before starting his journey to Earth, Obatala needed a gold chain long enough to reach below, the shell of a snail filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut, all of which he was to carry in a bag. All the gods contributed what gold they had, and Orunmila supplied the articles for the bag. When all was ready, Obatala hung the chain from a corner of the sky, placed the bag over his shoulder, and started the downward climb. The gold chain symbolises human DNA.

Obatala

When he reached the end of the chain, he saw he still had some distance to go. Orunmila instructed Obatala from above to pour the sand from the snail shell and to immediately release the white hen. Obatala did what Orunmila said, and wherever the hen landed on the sand, it began scratching and scattering it about. Wherever the sand settled, it formed dry land, with bulkier piles becoming hills and the smaller piles valleys. Obatala jumped to a hill and named the place Ife. 

And the world was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God flew over the waters, Genesis Chapter 1 verse 2. In Genesis Chapter 1, verses 8 and 9, God made the firmament and divided the waters under from above, and it was so. And God called it Heaven, and the evening and morning were the second day.

Obatala soon found clay to mould figures like him and started his task, but he soon grew tired and decided to take a break. He made wine from a nearby palm tree and drank bowl after bowl. As a direct result of Obatala’s intoxication, he assembled many mentally and physically impaired human beings. Once sober, Obatala comprehended what an atrocious job he did. So God created man in his image, in the image of God, male and female, Genesis Chapter 1 verse 27.

The Principles and Binary Number of the Opele Divination Chain

First, He promised never to drink alcohol again nor allowed it near his shrine. Second, he became the patron Saint of disabled people. The foundation of analysis in Ifá is a systematised graphic translation of the results of the random presentation of the divination objects, among which the chain (Opele) and palm nuts (ikin) are the most prestigious. 

Tribute to Orunmila 

Fig 1 The Sacred Wall of Orunmila

Orunmila! The witness of fate Second to Oludumare (God or The Supreme Architect)) Thou are far more efficient than medicine, the Immense orbit that averts the day of death. My Lord Almighty, you saved the mysterious Spirit that fought death. To Thee, a salutation is first due in the morning.

Thou are the Equilibrium that adjusts World Forces. Thou art the One whose exertion is to reconstruct the creature of the debauched lot. Repairer of terrible luck, He who knows thee becomes immortal Lord, the indisputable king, perfect in the House of Wisdom! My Lord! Infinite in knowledge! Orunmila, not knowing thee is futile, but if we knew thee comprehensively, all would be well with humans. Ase o, Amen, Amun or Amen-Re.

Japanese Creation Mythology

Once upon a time, all the elements were admixtures with one germ of life. This germ began to mix things around and around until the heavier part sank and the lighter part rose. A muddy sea originated that covered the entire Earth. From this ocean grew a green shoot. It continued growing until it reached the clouds, transforming into a god. Soon, this god grew lonely, and it began to create other gods. 

The last two gods it made, Izanagi and Izanami, were the most remarkable. One day, while walking, they looked down on the ocean and wondered what was beneath it. Izanagi thrust his staff into the waters, and while pulling it back up, clumps of mud fell back into the sea. They began to harden and grow until they became the islands of Japan. 

Japanese Creation Mythology

The mode of transport from the city of heaven by Olofin Otete was a mystical chain, symbolising the umbilical cord in the Ifa creation narrative. Ifa creation narrative is similar to the statement; from this ocean, which grew a green shoot, in the Japanese version. The Japanese account also confirmed the Yoruba version, stating: 

When all was ready, Obatala hung the chain from a corner of the sky, placed the bag over his shoulder, and started the downward climb. Wherever the sand settled, it formed dry land, with bulkier piles becoming hills and the smaller piles valleys. However, in the Japanese chronicle, the growth of the green shoot was in the opposite direction.

Indian Creation Story

A lotus flower grew from the navel of Lord Vishnu with Brahma sitting on it. Brahma separated the flower into heaven, Earth and sky. Out of loneliness, Brahma split himself into two to create a male and a female. From this male and female, all beings existed. Let us compare the previous sentence to the Ifa creation story. 

The first human being he created is Enibieni (person in person), and she is a female. Enibieni was fourteen when she arrived on Earth with 450,000 herbs. She married Olofin Otete, and they had eight twins. It is very similar to the assertion that out of loneliness, Brahma split himself into two to create a male and a female. 

Lord Vishnu

In addition, Orunmila is the mysterious Babalawo who cast divination for Aye. He challenged Aye and stated that his reason for the divine session was loneliness. Aye confessed and agreed with Orunmila and said the world is devoid of human beings. It is another example of two common themes between Indian and Ifa world creation mythology.

Egyptian Creation Story: Hermopolis

The creation myth promulgated in the city of Hermopolis focused on the nature of the universe before world creation. The inherent qualities of the primaeval waters are represented by a set of eight gods called the Ogdoad. The goddess Naunet and her male counterpart Nu represented the stagnant primordial water itself; Huh and his counterpart Hauhet represented the water's infinite extent; Kek and Kauket personified the darkness present within it; and Amun and Amaunet represented its hidden and unknowable nature, in contrast to the tangible world of the living. 

The primaeval waters were part of the creation process, and the deities representing them were perceived as creator gods. According to the myth, the eight gods are divided into male and female groups. They were symbolically depicted as aquatic creatures because they dwelt within the water: the males were portrayed as frogs and the females as snakes. These two groups eventually converged, resulting in a great upheaval, which produced the pyramidal mound. From it emerged the sun, which rose into the sky to light the world.

Sumerian Creation Myth

The first world creation occurred during the existence of Apsu (Seawater) = One who existed from the beginning, and Tiamat (Freshwater) = The Maiden of life. Fresh and Sea waters mingled to become the first Adam and Eve. All marine life forms were supposed to have evolved from Fresh and Sea waters. 

They existed during the First Moon or Silver Cycle, known as the morning. And the world was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God flew over the waters, Genesis Chapter 1 verse 2. 

An Image of Atum

The second stage of  Earth occurred in the era of Lahmu (Mr. Mud) the deity of war, and Lahamu (Mrs. Mud) the lady of the battle. They existed during the first Sun cycle, known as evening. Then, the gods materialised within them. Lahmu (Mr. Mud) and Lahamu Mrs. Mud manifested by the name and emerged before they had grown in age and stature. So God created man in his image, in the image of God, male and female, Genesis Chapter 1 verse 27.

Egyptian Creation Story: Memphis

The Memphite version of creation centred on Ptah, the patron god of craftsmen. As such, he represented the craftsman's ability to envision a finished product and shape raw materials to create that product. The Memphite theology said that Ptah similarly created the world. Unlike the other Egyptian creations, it was not a physical but an intellectual creation by the Word and the Mind of God. 

The ideas developed within Ptah's heart (regarded by the Egyptians as the seat of human thought)  formed when he named them with his tongue. By speaking these names, Ptah produced the gods and all other things. The Memphite creation myth coexisted with that of Heliopolis, as Ptah's creative thought and speech were believed to have caused the formation of Atum and the Ennead. Ptah was also associated with Tatjenen, the god who personified the pyramidal mound.

Images of Pataeke/Pataikos Son of Ptah

Egyptian Creation Story: Thebes

Theban theology claimed that Amun was not merely a member of the Ogdoad but the hidden force behind creation. There is a conflation of all notions of creation into the personality of Amun, emphasising how Amun transcends all other deities in his being "beyond the sky and the underworld. One Theban myth likened Amun's act of creation to the call of a goose, which broke the stillness of the primaeval waters and caused the Ogdoad and Ennead to form. 

Amun was separate from the world, and his true nature was concealed even from the other gods. At the same time, however, because he was the ultimate source of creation, all the gods, including the other creators, were merely aspects of Amun. Amun eventually became the supreme god of the Egyptian pantheon because of this belief.

Amun is synonymous with the growth of Thebes as a religious capital. But it is the columned halls, obelisks, colossal statues, wall reliefs, and hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Theban temples that we look to gain the impression of Amun's superiority. Thebes was thought of as the location of the emergence of the primordial mound at the beginning of time. Anath.

Chinese Creation Chronology 

Image of Pan Gu

A mixture of yin and yang — female-male, aggressive-passive, cold-hot, dark-light, and wet-dry, contained chaos in a colossal egg. Within this yin and yang was Pan Gu, who broke forth from the egg as the giant who separated chaos into the many opposites, including Earth and sky. 

However, Taoists believe in Tao, the Great Mother: empty yet inexhaustible, giving birth to infinite worlds from emptiness. 

One of the eight Akamara (the Universal Spirit of the Universe), a powerful being, oversaw the making of the Universe. Akamara is the end of nothingness and the beginning of existence. 

The common theme between Chinese and Ifa creation stories is the materialisation of infinite worlds from emptiness. Figure 1 is the sacred symbol of the wall of Orunmila, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Taoist Tao, containing yins and yangs.

Ifa, World Creation Story, Akamara, Olodumare, Odus, Orishas, Obatala, Ogun and Ile-Ife

 Ifa World Creation Story Part 1

Before the existence of the Universe, there were eight Akamaras, including Olodumare. According to Ifa, the creation of our planet, in the beginning, does not involve Olodumare because it was the fourth stage of construction, not the first.  Oludumare or Eledumare is one of the eight Akamara before the Holyverse (Universe) existed. Oludumare is the Supreme God of our solar system. Most Akamaras controlled the Galaxies and Solar Systems. In Ifa, there is no such thing as a universe but Holyverse.

The Holyverse or Universe

The Eight Akamaras

One of the Akamara (A) (the Universal Spirit of the Universe), a powerful being, oversaw the making of the Universe. Akamara (A) is the end of nothingness and the beginning of existence. However, Taoists believe in Tao, the Great Mother: empty yet inexhaustible, giving birth to infinite worlds from emptiness. The first thing Akamara created is a grain of sand. Many Akamaras are neither female nor male. After the grain of sand, he breathes dew (Iri) on it to enable the growth of different gasses.

Akamara (A)  created another super deity (Origun), higher than the other 800 Orishas or Irumoles (Yoruba deities). The duty of Origun was to coordinate the expansion of various chapters or houses (galaxies) that kept moving and expanding, becoming very hot.

The temperature of the gasses got extremely hot, and nothing could survive it. So, Akamara created another fantastic being, Babaasemuogunsuwon, to cool the gasses down. After cooling down, solidification of the gasses began, and they became stars. After the formation of the stars, their rotations became chaotic as they collided. Meanwhile, Akamara created another Superb being, Oluiwaye, to control their movements, making it orderly and anticlockwise. 

Ifa Odus Represented Galaxies, Chapters or Houses

The sacred verse in Ogbe Ofun (binary 0101.1111) Holy Verses bears testament to the era when the orderly movements of the stars occurred. One of the Holy Verses in Ogbe Oyeku chapter stated stubbornness copulated with doggedness because tenacity wanted to become the god of helter-skelter and misdirection at the crossroad of stars formation, cast divination for the cult of Shasha, the divinator of heaven. According to one of the Holy Verses in the Irosun Owonrin (binary 0011.1100), immortal beings resided inside the moon before the origin of the USA and their Space program.

It is reasonable to suggest that the first things created are different kinds of gasses, followed by galaxies, stars, and planets. Even the Holy Bible stated before creation, our world was void. In addition, the origin of Buddhism is the void. The first thing Akamara created was a grain of sand, which expanded and became very hot due to his breath to become galaxies, then gasses turning to stars, and finally planets, the fourth stage. 

Our Solar System

Manifestation of Olodumare and Orunmila

During the fourth stage, Olodumare created our solar system and put Aye (Earth), another divine being, in charge of our world, who is not an Akamara but ranked above the 800 Orishas or Irumoles. And Aye sought a casting of divination before embarking on the responsibility Olodumare mandated. 

Aye searched and found an Orisha requesting a divinatory session while the Earth was still in a state of nothingness because there were no objects to cast it. 

To solve this problem, the chosen Orisha placed his hand on the ground, and upon lifting his palm, the odu magically appeared. The Odu that manifested is Oyeku on the left and Ogbe to the right. Orunmila is the mysterious Babalawo that cast divination for Aye. 

He challenged Aye and stated that his reason for the divine session was loneliness. Aye confessed and agreed with Orunmila and said the world is devoid of human beings. Orunmila also told Aye that another deity was coming mightier than everybody in the solar system. He replied Okay, asking what to do. Orunmila told him to gather objects to perform a sacrifice. A bowl made on another planet was the chosen container for the collected sacrificial items. 

After sacrificing, the rainbow (Oshumare) started oozing out of the bowl and continued for 333 days, according to Ifa. As soon as the rainbow expired, a supreme deity manifested, and both Orunmila and Aye prostrated to him. The name of this entity is Oloduikoko. He owned the mysterious bowl from another planet, ejecting rainbow. 

The full name of this being is Oloduikoko Oshumare, changed to Oloduikokooshumare, the origin of the name Olodumare. And that is the story of Olodumare (the Supreme God), his first manifestation in our solar system. After materialisation, he summoned all the 801 Orishas from everywhere and divided them into three. Furthermore, Olodumare placed 200 Orishas on his left-hand side and another 200 on his left hand permanently, with the remaining 401 interchanging between heaven and Earth.

Orunmila
Formation of the Orishas

Olodumare then chose Ogun, one of the 801 Orishas and told him to chart a path from our solar system to Earth. The other attribute of Ogun is astrological pathfinding, not just the god of war. 

Ogun arrived on Earth with several other Orishas. And he brought wood from other planets with him. As soon as Ogun arrived, all the other Orishas, including him,  got on with their designated work. The job was hard, relentless and tiresome. 

All the Orishas started losing their energy due to a lack of food (no plant or marine life, just a void). They do not need food to survive on their planets. 

However, the Orishas must obey the natural laws on Earth. They all have to eat to live on our planet. Eventually, the mission failed, and the Orishas left and reported back to Olodumare. Olodumare summoned Obatala out of 801 Orishas, asking him to finish the uncompleted task. 

Obatala utilised the astronomical path previously charted by Ogun to travel to our world. He arrived on Earth accompanied by eight other Orishas. The names of the eight Orisha that came with Obatala are Alanu, Olore, Shugbemi, Fagbemiti, Loshuntoro, Oroko, Lamugbe and Iye. Even though Obatala brought large quantities of water with him, it still needed to be more sustainable for incessant labour for a long duration. After persistent toiling without food, the Orishas gave up and returned to Olodumare to report their failure again.

Olodumare called Orunmila (their second encounter) and told him to go and complete the job. Before embarking on the journey, Orunmila consulted some Babalawos in heaven for a divination session, and the Odu that transpired is Eji Ogbe (1111.1111). The divination forecast advised Orunmila to take plenty of Ase (Spirit of Energy), food and seeds to plant on Earth. And the first seed to germinate is Efo Tete. 

Symbol of Obatala

Orunmila also brought 1,4060 herbs with him and gave 60 to another Orisha called Osanyin. Orunmila planted all the herbs he had left. Meanwhile, Osanyin began to manipulate the 60 plants given to him and became disagreeable. 

Orunmila returned to heaven to report to Olodumare that the mission was accomplished and received a blessing. Ogun and Obatala also went to Olodumare with Orunmila, who asked Ogun what he ate while residing on Earth and queried the other Orishas, asking the same question.

Ogun replied wood, and Olodumare nicknamed him wood eater (Ajegi). Obatala replied, water, and he nicknamed him a water drinker (Amomi). Orunmila replied, food, and he nicknamed him a food eater (Jeunjeun). 

For example, in Yoruba culture, when you wake up, the first action taken is to Runpako (chew chewing stick), representing Ogun. The second step is to use water to gaggle, cleaning the chewing stick residues, signifying Obatala. Finally, with a clean mouth, you are ready to eat your food, symbolising Orunmila. Olodumare summoned two young Orishas and tasked the first Olorududu with supporting the Earth at the North Pole and the second Olobilkin in the South. 

The Materialisation of Super Beings

Meanwhile, Orisha Olokun Ijinji (the primordial one), a male, was already residing on Earth. There are four different kinds of Olokun. Strategically placed in the world were six pots given to Olokun Ijinji. After a while, the water in the six pots began to dwindle, inhibiting other entities from their daily cleansing routine. Olokun Ijinji and the other entities consulted Ifa and made many sacrifices as forecasted to alleviate their water problem. During his consultation with Ifa, Olokun Ijinji utilised all 256 odus and made offerings to the rest of the Orishas (about 800).

Orisha Olorududu and Olobilikin Supporting Earth

Olosa, another water deity, had the same problem as Olokun Ijinji but much worse because her volume of water was even less. Olosa also made sacrifices to 128 odus to remedy the situation. However, the Earth was still devoid of oxygen, but the plants previously planted by Orunmila and Osanyin began to flourish in a carbon dioxide-rich environment, producing a small amount of oxygen. 

Orunmila created more entities called Eniyan, who are not human. The Eniyans were technologically advanced entities, and their job was to manipulate all the elements and plants in the world. As soon as the Eniyans got to work, oxygen level rose considerably, and everybody benefitted, including the plants and themselves. 

Olodumare Decided to answer the prayers of Olokun and Olosa by overwhelming the Earth with water from below. However, the current was too strong, and our planet was covered with water, killing almost everything. 

Orisha Olokun symbols

A few Eniyans and many powerful entities survived. After the flood subsided, Olodumare called Obatala again and told him to fix the world. 

Obatala failed again because as soon as the plants on Earth recovered from the flood, he made alcohol, got badly intoxicated and returned to Olodumare. However, Olofin Otete volunteered to go and finish the uncompleted task of Obatala.

 He is the first manifestation of Oduduwa. Olofin Otete was the primordial Oduduwa. His mode of transport from the city of heaven was a mystical chain, symbolising the umbilical cord. When he arrived on Earth, he met seven extraordinary women who survived the flood. 

Orisha Ogun Voodoo Symbol

The names of these seven women are Afoori, Amoori, Okemowo, Ogemese, Ogomagoari and the others (unbeknown) are called Iyamis. They are the initiators and manifestation of the Eniyans. During this time, no human existed on our planet. Finally, Olodumare decided to create a human being because there were none in the world apart from the 801 Orishas and other entities. 

The first human being he created is Enibieni (person in person), and she is a female. Enibieni was fourteen when she arrived on Earth with 450,000 herbs. She married Olofin Otete, and they had eight twins. Meanwhile, Olodumare monitored what was unfolding on Earth, including another resident deity (Omolugbo). As the children of Enibieni and Olofin Otete grew up, the temptation of incest increased because they were the only humans in the world. 

Orisha Eshu

Once aware of the situation, Omolugbo contacted Olodumare, who decided to create more human beings. Olodumare Immediately created 2,000 more humans. Eshu Odara had to travel the cosmos to retrieve the first grain of sand made by Akamara as a building block for human production. Olodumare put Obatala in charge of the construction of human beings. 

At the final stage of creation, Obatala injected fluid into the male and female beings (an Egg and sperm), including Ase (Spirit of Energy), to enable embryo development. Obatala possesses every male before ejaculation, kickstarting embryo development after ejaculating through Ase begotten to men. Olodumare declared that every child coming from heaven would use the same mode of transport as Olofin Otete, the umbilical cord. 

When Olodumare materialised for the first time in front of Orunmila and Aye, putting his hand on the ground to cast divination, the Odu that transpired was Odi on the right and Irosun on the left. So, reading from right to left, the binary number for Odi (1100) and Irosun (1001) is 1100.1001. 

All of us are the product of Olofin Otete, Obatala, Orunmila, Ogun, Oshoshi and Eshu Odara, overseen by Olodumare.  Ogun built the bones in our body, hence the names Ako Irin (male iron) and Obi Irin (female iron). The name later became Okunrin (a boy) and Obinrin (a girl). Babaasemuogunsuwon and Oluiwaye were responsible for the elements that created our world and the anticlockwise rotation.

Ile-Ife has earned many enviable appellations, which are:

Ile-Ife, ile Owuro, the land of the most ancient days 

Ile-Ife, Oodaye, where the word of creation took place 

Ile-Ife, Ibi ti ojumo ti mowa, where the first  day of dawn manifested

Ile-Ife, Ori aye gbogbo, head of the whole world

Ile-Ife, Ooye Lagbo, city of the survivors.

The language spoken was Ife and not Yoruba. 

Odu (Galaxy) of Eji Ogbe, Ese (Holy Verses) 

The Ifa literary corpus, called odu, consists of 256 parts subdivided into holy verses called ese, whose exact number is unknown because of the constant increment (around 800 ese per odu (chapter) = 240,800). The formula for calculating the 240,800 Holy verses originated from N=8 ternary 2-structures. However, Ifa also has an N=8 ternary 3-structures, and to calculate the sum of the Holy verses, we multiply 6,561 by 800 = 5,248,800 divine messages.

The hierarchy of the sixteen major Odus (Chapters) of Ifa is as follows:

Orisha Oshoshi
  1. Eji Ogbe is the perfect alignment of destiny (Pure Lights), adapting it to self-destination. Characteristic: good behaviour and deeds
  2. Oyeku Meji is black holes (Death) signifying the end of a cycle. Characteristic: the end of illness, poverty, loneliness, and so on
  3. Iwori Meji focuses on the ability to identify real possibilities in life. Characteristic: Commerce and wealth
  4. Odi Meji is about sealing something in a ceremony to guarantee manifestation. Characteristic: the spirit of the female reproductive organ
  5. Irosun Meji is the stable and inflexible reality that comes before us. Characteristic: Osun, the spirit that protects the head and past 
  6. Owonri Meji says the solidification of the past lays the foundation for the future. Characteristic: spectrum of human potential manifestations
  7. Obara Meji is the incarnation of human humility. Characteristic: struggles between arrogance and humility
  8. Okanran Meji is the first step to accessing your ability to create abundance. Characteristic: change of direction in human life
  9. Ogunda Meji is about the courage needed to take responsibility for your problems. Characteristic: Ibi (bad) and Ire (Good) and facing your problems head-on 
    Enibieni Artistic Impression

  10. Osa Meji is the story of interactions between humans and birds after coexistence, which ended in tragedy for the birds. Characteristic: Eshu (Guardian of the crossroad between heaven and Earth) told humans to break the taboo and kill birds for food, subjugating human beings to worshipping Eleye (the Spiritual King of the Birds), asking it for assistance. 
  11. Ika Meji is about Keeping away from evil ideas, actions and vocalisations, stipulating that evil does not pay. Characteristic: Good deeds, words and thoughts that should encourage the blessing of Olodumare

Sumerian, Yoruba vs. Biblical  Creation Myth
The first replenishing of the world occurred during the existence of Apsu (Seawater) = One who existed from the beginning, and Tiamat (Freshwater) = The Maiden of life. Fresh and Sea waters mingled to become the first Adam and Eve. All marine life forms were supposed to have evolved from Fresh and Sea waters. They existed during the First Moon or Silver Cycle, known as the morning. 

And the world was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God flew over the waters, Genesis Chapter 1 verse 2. 
Olofin Otete and the Umbilica Cord Artistic Impression
The Yoruba version stated, there was only the sky above, water and marshland below. Olorun (owner of heaven) ruled the sky, and the goddess Olokun ruled below the heaven. Obatala, another god, reflected upon this situation and then went to Olorun for permission to create dry land for all kinds of life forms to inhabit.
