"It is when the young awo becomes knowledgeable that he becomes a threat to his elders, according to proverbial wisdom. But more urgently, it is when you become committed to living the medicine that you become a threat to your peers and contemporaries.
When you stop talking about changing and you actually start living the medicine, then you will see the social disease that surrounds you more clearly. Some will disappear without a trace. Others will make petty charges and challenges. Still others will be like wolves in sheep's clothing, who smile and grin and offer platitudes laced with sabotage and deception.
Know that all of this is par for the course. Do not allow yourself to be discouraged. Ifa teaches us that there are three categories of people; the achievers, the supporters and the bystanders. As long as you dedicate yourself to those three personality types, you will be more likely to thrive.
