IFA on Careful Investments

From Odu Ifa Obara Ogunda:
Amodun o jinna
K’eni o ma hu eebu je o
Dia fun Orunmila
Ti yoo t’ori Akapo o re bo’nu Igbo
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gb’ebo, o ru’bo
Igbati Orunmila t’ori Akapo re bo’nu Igbo
L’aje waa de gbuurugbu
Ero Ipo ati Ofa
E waa ba’ni ba’yo
E waa wo’re

Translation
Next year is not far
Let no one eat what they are supposed to plant
Ifa’s message for Orunmila
When going to subject his Akapo to Ifa initiation rites
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
When Orunmila subjected his Akapo to Ifa initiation rites
The ire of financial success came trooping in
Travelers to Ipo and Ofa towns
Join us in the midst of joy
Come and perceive all ire of life

Here IFA is telling us that the harvest is just around the corner (next year is not far away), so we must be patient and invest carefully, and plant and care for the seeds and tubers that will grow to create next years harvest. Our investments will not be in vain.
Patience and hard-work are key to success in any of our endeavors in life. With patience and hard-work, IFA will surely bless our efforts. Ase O

Sincerely,
