Olodumare and the Orishas see everything.
They see our minds, our thoughts, and our hearts.
When we pray or make special requests,
They know our true intentions. 
We must be careful what we ask for,
We do reap what we sow.

Ifa is primarily a point of view , rather than a set of specific doctrines.
However, within this view characterize certain fundamental beliefs ,Ifa perspective. Predominant among these beliefs is the assumption that the world and everything
that is in it is inherently sacred. This means that the universe is experienced as a source of benevolence within which all things exist for a purpose.
Within the Ifa cosmology there is no ” devil” and no identification of the ” primordial evil .”
Because the World is considered holy, there Ifa a sense of respect for all living things , a respect for all points of view and a deep reverence for the inspiration that comes through the contemplation and observation. Personally, Ifa teaches that whoever lived carries a seed of divinity. This seed can be nurtured and developed as the maturation of a tree
grows, or it can be set aside and destroyed to become fertilizer. It is this seed that unites us all to a common source , which in turn provides the basis for treating us with respect. Ifa is based on the belief that if a person ‘s life improves , life improves for all . If a person suffers, all suffer . According to Ifa, the best way to avoid suffering is to discover personal destiny and live a life that reflects the contents of that discovery.

The Importance of Iwa-Pele, Good Character

We choose how to live on Earth.
The Iwa from an individual, or the moral and ethical nature is allowing you to live in harmony with the Ache.
Although the Lucumi religion does not have the concept of sin in the strict sense of the bible, Olorun knows our actions on Earth and “measure” our ache according to our behavior.
Olorun gave Obatala the task of teaching the moral order and a code of ethics for human beings, and to help humans to develop good moral character in the land.
This requires humans to be dedicated to God, the Orishas, and the ancestors, and to treat all the creations of God with respect and reverence.
He is expected that the individual be a good son or daughter, a good father or mother, a good Member of the community, a good Godson, or Godfather.
Following the example of Obatala, who teaches human beings to keep a cool head and think before acting or speaking out of turn, human beings must strive to be models for others to her around.
However, human beings have free will and can choose how to behave on Earth.
Those who use their ache immoral, harmful or bad purposes will suffer the consequences during their lifetime. They will lose their ache, and leaving the path of IWA, will be out of harmony with all that surrounds them.
They are open to disease, premature death, conflicting relationships, loss, and other forms of Osogbo (bad energy, the misfortune).
Strictly speaking, there is no moral judgment attached to good and bad behavior, but the importance of living correctly is obvious in practical terms.
The individual who chooses to develop his IWA shall have a full life, and that chooses not to live ethically finally will see bad results in your life.
The individual is always responsible for their own actions, because God and the Orishas will only help those who help themselves.
Ache is the vital energy that makes up the life, but it is neither good nor bad by nature. It is neutral. It is very powerful, but can help or hurt the people, depending on how it is used.
The Lucumi tradition teaches that the end to exist harmoniously in the world, must also know to distinguish evil, evil. One cannot exist without the other. The ideal is that humans must cultivate and use your ache to help themselves and others and lead productive lives.
However, human beings are not always at the height of the divine ideal posture, and depart from the path of the IWA, which occasionally means as part of the human experience…
