The words Loyal and Betray are quite often misunderstood.

Posted on 07 April 2023 by Babalawo Aworeni


The words Loyal and Betray are quite often misunderstood. These words, loyalty and betrayal are something to think deeply about. Loyalty is seen and felt not just said. Loyalty is like the word love, it must be felt and shown and not just spoken. In other words, it must be acted and not just spoken only. Betrayal on the other hand, seems to be more seen and felt and experienced these days because of the characteristics of some people. 

Take for example, I will use the word loyalty to show reference to the relationship of a pet dog and its owner. The owner of the dog nurtures, cares for, pets, feeds, shows love, shows compassion, takes the pet dog to the veterinarian for the regular checks and if the pet dog becomes ill, attends to ensure health is restored and etc. The dog, would show his gratitude by being loyal to its owner. 

The point is, as humans, we speak the word LOYAL without acting the word LOYAL. The word loyal shows if someone has gratitude for life and all that comes in it or not, in turn, this is where betrayal comes in. It means that you can betray the source of your life by such actions. My point is, you and another person can have a disagreement, we are humans, we are not perfect, but it does not mean you should automatically betray that person because of disagreement. Were you loyal genuinely even in agreement? 

I always prefer to use myself as an example and prime example to exemplify my word. I, His Eminence Owolabi Awodotun Aworeni, The Araba Agbaye Oluisese Makoranwale II, The Arole Orunmila, am very loyal and will always be loyal ISESE, I can never betray Isese. My loyalty to Olodumare, Orunmila, my Ori, all Orisa, Egbe, all Ancestors because without a doubt,  they are LOYAL to me, they have never betrayed me. Loyalty is not just spoken but is seen and felt.

Loyalty, like the word love is not to be taken for granted and played with. Betrayal,like the word hate should be avoided as much as possible. As I recently told someone, we must not only preach the Word of Ifá, but we must Act the Word of Ifá. 

His Spiritual Eminence,

Owolabi Awodotun Aworeni

The Araba Agbaye Olu-isese 

Makoranwale II

Arole Orunmilla.
