In my opinion, people don’t understand the importance of Orunmila, because they really don’t understand Muhammad or JC. Prophets are really the spiritual leaders of the community. In modern times, we would say that they possess the “It Factor.” They have the power and insight to encourage change. There are a lot of people who actually fall into this category. However, prophets are single handedly able to change the perception of the entire world. But this is not an easy task. People tend to stick with the status quo because they would rather be in control than experience growth. People like to be in control because it ensures their own survival.
This is what separates the Great Prophets from ordinary man. They are on a higher level of consciousness and know and see things that ordinary man cannot. They work to implement change. The suffering that these prophets actually endure come from these oppositional forces. They are constantly fighting against the resentment, betrayal, and deceit of man. Yet, they keep moving, keep preaching, they keep pushing along, because they truly “know” that they have a message that can transcend all of mankind. When we talk about JC dying for our sins, we are talking about all the pain He endured to raise the level of human consciousness. It is because we fail to make a connection to these prophets that we don’t really see the value in ours.
In short, Orunmila is a prophet who spread the word of Ifa to aspirants in Africa. He brought down the Odu and worked with a team of Babalawos to ensure that people continued to fight against forces that resisted the flow of nature. Through the divination system, Orunmila worked to ensure that people tapped into their power and worked to transcend the overall consciousness of the human race.
