ORI, a Yoruba word meaning “head,” refers to one’s spiritual intuition and destiny. It is the reflective spark of human consciousness embedded into the human essence. When one has a balanced character, one obtains an alignment with one’s Ori or higer self.
Alignment with one’s Ori brings, to the person who obtains it, inner peace and satisfaction with life. To come to know the Ori is essentially, to come to know oneself, a concept extremely foreign to Western philosophy.
