Yoruba Destiny Creation Myth



You cannot out run your destiny Yoruba creation myth
You cannot out run your destiny Yoruba creation myth
The God Oggun who never sleeps as long as the world is turning molded the human skeleton and the God Obatala molded the head of humans out of clay. 

Olodumare, the supreme God of the universe, blew the breath of life into the completed human body. 

The destiny or Ori chosen determines your final destiny. You are said to be free to choose any Ori from Ajala, the God who supplies the inner head within the clay head of humans. The chosen Ori irreversibly determines the life course and personality of the chooser on earth. 

The success or failure of a person’s life depends on the choice of Ori. However, once born you are unaware of the Ori chosen. If a person is smart, famous or rich, it is said they chose the right destiny or Ori for themselves.
