Further contemplations on the Odu Osa Meji

To see into the eyes of Ifa
is to look upon the suffering of mankind
a condition only understood
after having truly suffered.
To be an Awo
is to have suffered and
still believe in the capacity for good.
All the while
maintaining balance and clarity
so as to guide others with the wisdom
of the middle path.

Further contemplation on the Odu Ofun Meji

Within all knowledge
there are hidden
for without understanding
we believe the moon
rises and falls
upon the surface of a still lake and
its reflection shines upon the night sky
