“For you to experience total peace and happiness, detach yourself from people and things”—IFÁTo detach yourself from people and things does not mean you should disregard them but it means your joy, peace and happiness should not depend on them so that you don’t suffer unneccessarily-because this is what attachment does.
When you find it difficult to go off people and things because you see them as your source of joy, peace and happiness, it means you are emotionally attached to them and when they leave you suddenly, you will suffer!
We all are here to experience and enhance life through our various paths, therefore, nobody is owing you, and you are not owing anybody, so when people come into your life to make impart, it is not because they owe you, it is because your ORÍ/EGBÉ sent them to fulfill a purpose in your life, therefore do not get attached to them, instead give thanks to your ORÍ for using them. Let’s hear what Ifá said about why we should detach ourselves from people and things, in Òyèkú meji:Ojú abéré kò sé pinBalùwè tó kún, kò gbé okòIpìn lófi ojú jo ináSùgbón kò lè jó bí ináAdífá fún ÒrúnmìlàNíjó tí ó ń ló rè é bá elemere mulèWón ní kí ó rúboKí elemere má ba à dàáRíròmó Ikin sì ni ebo naaÒrúnmìlà níí ódi kóroMo ti fi òrò mi kó ikin lórùnMo ti rí ayò àìnípèkun
Translation: The needle’s eye is not wide enough to pass throughA bathroom floor filled with plenty water cannot move a canoeIpìn(A kind of plant) feels like a fire when touched, but it cannot burn like a fire.These were ifá’s messages for OrunmilaWhen he was going to have a relationship with ElemereHe was asked to offer sacrificeAnd the sacrifice was that:He should not depend on elemere for anything, but his Orí insteadOrunmila said it has turn to Kóro(ifa slang)I have cooperated with my OríI have found joy, peace and everlasting happiness.In this verse, ifá said we should for no reason become emotionally attached or depend on anyone or anything, but instead, we should cooperate with our Orí because that is where the everlasting joy is. Understand that your Orí will provide whatever assistance you need at the right time and through the right soul or thing.When people come into your life, understand WHY they are in your life, and once the REASON is known, focus on the reason alone and appreciate your orí for it. Don’t be attached to neither the REASON nor the person. Also, when you are in someone’s life, understand why you are there and focus on why you are there, don’t see yourself as the lord over their lives, understand that your orí wants you to fulfill a purpose in their lives and focus on that alone. Emotional attachment will cause you pains,detach yourself from people and things.Do you understand?Any question?Message: Efe Mena Aletor
