"A man can never hope to be more than he is if he is not first honest about what he isn’t." Such was the lesson learned the hard way by Egg, who insisted upon going into battle. He was advised to steer clear of the battle field but refused, on account of being a close friend of the warrior, Kanakana. It wasn't until he reached the field that Egg realized the fact that he was not prepared for the rage of war. But by then it was too late. Here, The Holy Odu EjiOgbe teaches us the importance of introspection and honest Assessment.
The power of accurate Assessment is what drives all forms of transformation. Ifarinu is a name that reminds us that Ifa sees our inner worlds. Thus the babalawo is uniquely qualified to Assess where every individual is on the journey of life. Oftentimes, this requires a good look at where an individual is NOT, in spite of what he or she would like to believe.
