THE OKRA/OKRAA COMPLEX
The Soul of Akanfo
The Okra/Okraa Complex - The Soul of Akanfo is a text wherein we address the nature and function of the Soul/Divine Consciousness which is called Okra (aw-krah') and Okraa (aw-krah'-ah) in Akan culture. The Okra (masculine) or Okraa (feminine) is our personal Obosom (Deity) which resides in our head region. The Okra/Okraa is a Spirit-Entity which always guides us to live in harmony with Nyamewaa-Nyame Nhyehyee (The Supreme Being's Divine Order) and is the foundation for religious practice amongst Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People).
The Okra and Okraa are called the Ka and Kait in ancient Khanit and Kamit (ancient Nubia and Egypt), Ori Inu in Yoruba and Se Lido in Vodoun. The cosmology which is the foundation for understanding the nature and function of the Soul/Divine Consciousness is fundamentally the same for Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) worldwide. This nhoma (book) will thus deepen one's understanding of the Okra/Okraa by whatever name It is called in our various Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) cultures.
Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) culture includes those of us who held on to our Ancestral traditions through the horrors of enslavement in the western hemisphere. It was our adherence to our Ancestral traditions, our alignment with our Okra/Okraa, the Abosom (Deities) and our Nananom Nsamanfo (Honored Ancestresses and Ancestors) which gave us the fortitude to free ourselves from enslavement and reconstitute our Ancestral blood-circles.
