divine principle spiritual representation (right) is the wisdom
element: word/guidance of the Universal Feminine/Masculine Divine Principle
(god), whose spiritual keynotes include faith, good judgment, intuition and
optimism. Orunmila/Tehuti is the manifestation of the Afrikan Asili: the
genesis, cosmology, cosmogony. The Tree of Life is the realization of the Divine
Feminine/Masculine Principles of the Universe. Religion is organized expression
of a concern with realities beyond the physical/visible. Religion is the medium
by which the Tree of Life is accessed. If We analyze the word religion, We find
that the word "religion" is composed of the Latin prefix "re" meaning "again,
back" and "ligare" meaning "tie, bind, fasten." Thus, religion binds us to the
source of our existence.

Maat is the Divine Feminine/Masculine
Principle of Truth and Justice, where the heart is weighed in judgment against
a feather. Maat/Aje Chagulia is the unification of insights via philosophical,
theoretical and religious principles and values. Maat is wholistic, just,
optimistic, religious and generous. The Odu (divine laws) of Afrikan spiritual
traditions are always ever-present . As the Eyeunle Odu states: "the Head
carries the body." This Odu is the governing rule, principle, value that
COASADOS is based upon.
COASADOS seeks to reacquaint
Afrikans with the Maatic source of our spiritual power. The Eyeunle
Odu that governs COASADOS instructs us that it is not our bodies that bare the
weight of responsibility, but rather our minds carry the responsibility for
living the divine principle of Maat (truth). Resynthesis of the
Feminine/Masculine Principles of the Universe to the Afrikan centered cultural
matrix, is the liberating force for Afrikan people. Through prayer, meditation,
faith, belief and introspection does one achieve the Eyeunle Odu path to Maat.
The basis of Maat is that We live by standards imposed by our essential divine
nature. Maat is the source of strength to rise to moral standard of which
Neter/Oludumare/Nyame/Mungu (god by any name) is the standard of measure. The
physical depiction of Maat (right) shows her w/an ankh in
