The Languages of the Gods
He is believed to be the Sky Father and the creator of human bodies, which were brought to life by the smooth breath of Olodumare. Obatala is the father of all orishas irunmole or imole. His principal wife is Yemoo. Obatala was authorized by Olodumare to create land upon the water beneath the sky. Due to his efforts, the first Yoruba city, Ife , was founded. Obatala is Olodumare's representative on Earth and the shaper of human beings. According to the oral traditions of Ife, the mortal Obatala served as king of Ife during its classical period.
Tales of Yoruba Gods & Heroes
The Yoruba myth of Eshu, the only god who knows all the languages of the different gods and of humans, is the point of departure for an examination of poetry and poetry therapy. Metaphor, transference, translation and transport are all intrinsic elements of the languages of the gods. This language calls for empathic attention to the suffering person and full respect for that person's individuality, without imposition of ideology. Poetry therapists rise to the level of this language, and can contribute to human justice, when they confront human tragedy and personal development without bias or preconception, find language to help the client say what has heretofore been unsayable, and, when necessary, translate the words and behavior of the client in such a way as to convey the authentic experience without making that person only an object of scientific analysis.
