The Odu - Irosun - Focusing Forward

God creates a joyously expanding Universe with attention focused forward. The entire process reaches to what’s next. Choices are made based on the values inherent in the system. 

Irosun, the fifth energy, is about long-term orientation and the values of the creative process. Oludumare is more interested in emergence than what already exists. Irosun encourages us to focus forward so we can discover our potential. This is best accomplished when we free ourselves from the concerns of our ego.

What values does the Universe reflect in its expansion? The trajectory of evolution shows us. It favours complexity. Creation has become more complex with each step from the first atoms to intelligent, self-reflective life. This process allows completely new forms to emerge.

As far as we know, human beings are the most complex organisms in the Universe. We  have become self aware. We have begun to take the role of the Creator ourselves. For good, or bad, we have a profound impact on our world. 

The Universe is benevolent, but, it has a far longer perspective on life than we do. If we self-destruct it will only be a set back, Oludumare has nothing but time with which to create. We are not the last intelligent life that will be created. We are likely not the first that was either.

The Universe will continue to expand outward. Other self-aware creatures are inevitable. We arrogantly believe that our evolution is done. Even we, will develop new capacities, become something that we might not even recognize. The process has just begun.

We align with the cosmic process through our destinies. We have no set route to achieve them. Only the general direction and Universal values to guide us. The development of wisdom can take many paths. 

The Universe does not know where it is going next. There is joy and excitement in novelty. If we get caught up in joy as we move forward. We join in the mystery.

Can you see how the direction, and values, of the creative process guide us towards our own development? I’d love to hear why, or why not.
