Awòn tí wóm sègún otà, kò sòbùn tí yió fá ibèrù otà.
Meaning: Those who defeat the internal enemy do not have to fear the external one.
From a certain point of view, Ifa states that fear is like an inner demon which is more difficult to defeat than external fears. The displacement behavior, as a psychological definition used as an excuse not to face the difficulties when they appear as enemies, is the Western theory. Enemies are not only those people who directly or indirectly oppose to you, but also those obstacles which emerge every day. Ifa gives you your destiny and teaches you how to live it, how to deal with those misfortunes which emerge and frighten you; but the most important thing is to be able to realize when the fear is present and be able to defeat it. In this attempt, the fear to defeat the fear creates another demon, but those who are capable of recognizing this feeling will be able to succeed, and will not remain sunken in the depths of fear all their lives. The sacrifice (Ebo) to the Orishas and living in harmony with them will give you the strength to know and face your destiny through Ifa. He will show us the path to achieve our goals.
