ASÈ (or àṣẹ or ashe1) is an African philosophical concept through which the Yoruba of Nigeria conceive the power to make things happen and produce change. It is given by Olodumare to everything - gods, ancestors, spirits, humans, animals, plants, rocks, rivers, and voiced words such as songs, prayers, praises, curses, or even everyday conversation. Existence, according to Yoruba thought, is dependent upon it.2
In addition to its sacred characteristics, ase also has important social ramifications, reflected in its translation as "power, authority, command." A person who, through training, experience, and initiation, learns how to use the essential life force of things to willfully effect change is called an alaase.
Rituals to invoke divine forces reflect this same concern for the autonomous ase of particular entities. The recognition of the uniqueness and autonomy of the ase of persons and gods is what structures society and its relationship with the other-world.
Love, Love, Love, ASÈ.!.

No-one is entirely sure whether the obscure Åse (pronounced similarly to Oh-seh) exists or not. In folk tales they are known for being a mess of a person, usually found anywhere but Scandinavia, as they have strong instincts to escape their birthplace in their pursuit of purpose. Perhaps the most famous fictional Åse is found in "Peer Gynt", a the famous play by Ibsen, where they're presented as a peasant's widow. One of the most famous parts of the soundtrack for this play is "Åse's Death", which plays each time an Åse gives up and dissolves back into the aether.

If you encounter an Åse, be cautious. They are very perceptive of fake smiles, and will become aggravated when being lied to. Presuming that you believe your music taste is good, you may offer them a recommendation. If they approve you could now be considered friends; if not – walk quickly in the opposite direction.
Often Åse talks about anti-capitalism; it makes me want to start a revolution!
