“Wisdom Todey”

This is another verse about being overly proud. In this verse a good man did wrong unknowingly. His pride however prevented him from admitting his mistake and apologizing. His actions caused the people stress until he finally humbled himself and apologized. There are many verses in the Odu about the dangers of pride and the necessity of prostrating oneself to wisdom. Our ancestors were exceptionally righteous people, but pride is the customary vice among good people. It was a common vice among our ancestors, and still today it is largely the result of our pride that prevents us from attaining the wisdom, power, and strength of our traditional African selves. This verse of the Sacred Odu is as true now as it was when it was written. We must prostrate ourselves to the wisdom of our ancestors and the ones that carry the torch of this wisdom todey. Ashe
