He taught his friends and godchildren to see the Osha-Ifá from a disinterested lens, holding the conviction that:

  • The Orishas should be worshiped by men and not the other way around and that we were all Olofin's favorite children until we began to stain his name with bad actions and ingratitude.

Only in the moments in which life places man between a rock and a hard place, is when humanity knows the strength of its faith and how far it is capable of going to keep its word.
