"Direction is more important than speed. Many are going nowhere fast. We lose our capacity to have visions if we don't take the steps to realize them. You don't succeed when you aim for success. You so when your vision is priority. Slow and steady wins the race." - 🏁🚥
If the roots of a plant are corrupted, then the health and the growth of the plant is compromised. Right now, people are trying to forcefully influence growth upon themselves or influence the will of others, without having a strong foundation of which their beliefs or ideas are built on, that their theories that they apply to their journey, are apt to spiral them out of control. They may have an idea of what a larger picture looks like, but the devil is in the details. They may think they have the best of intentions, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. You need healthy execution and patient practice. If you don't want a road or a bridge to collapse you have to make sure that the structure is strong enough to carry the weight of everything that travels over it. The bridge that many are building or have built for themselves or trying to get others to cross, is hazardous. Oggun is the orisha of metal, weaponry and battle. He is a soldier. Soldier and solid share a common root in the Latin, "solidus" which means a soldier is one who stands solid in his beliefs, one who is not overly anxious to act. Obatala, an older more mature, orisha and former soldier, knows to win a war it takes patience and a calm cool head. Many people are being over eager to act on their journey and it's going to cause great imbalance, because it's risky to build something solid on ground that has no stability. People are going to be at conflict with themselves, as well as with others, because they are so caught up in the Philosophy and speed of going forward, rather than the practition that it takes for them to have longevity on their journey. Instant gratification of forcing will upon yourself, or others without having any type of true understanding of the character, inner peace and correct intent to execute, is going to bring about unpredictability.
