"The Ohanhan bird, weeping because of his intestines;
They say he is worrying unnecessarily.
The Ogbigbo bird carries a deities' load
And does not put it down.
The parrot alights on the ground, wobbly-wobbly-wobbly
These were the awos who cast Ifa for Orunmila
On the day that he and Ona iledi were enemies.
They said Orunmila should sacrifice so that he would defeat him.

Ona Iledi knew a certain curse. He was fighting with Orunmila. One day, Ona Iledi picked up his charm with intent to curse Orunmila. As he touched it to his mouth and began to pronounce the curse, Orunmila gathered a rat, a fish, and a snail to make sacrifice to his IPONRI. He called none other than Ona Iledi to come and pray for him! And because Ona Iledi could not stand there and openly curse Orunmila to his face, all he could do was bless Orunmila, saying, 'May you defeat your enemies.' Two days later, Ona Iledi was dead!!!
Ifa says that there is a person angry enough to kill someone in his own house. He does not allow this person to go forward or backward. Ifa says our enemy will die if he should invoke evil upon our heads. Orunmila has come to tell us to get obi abata and give it to the one who is doing evil to us, so that he will bless us with his own mouth.
Sometimes a soldier falls upon his own sword. The best thing for you to do is to be attuned to the situation and live the medicine of natural consequences. Likewise, if you are consumed with anger and resentment, it is time to release that tension in constructive ways. You can be free from evil intentions and vengeful dispositions.
