THE GREATEST LEADERSHIP - THEME OF WEEK 16-2020
The greatest leadership does not reside with emperor or general. The greatest leadership urge the people to run their own.
What did man learn from being a star dust? Man learned to travel a long way, that time is not a dimension but a state, that cold and heat are points on a continuum, that together we are strong and weighty. All this and much more, Man learned like star dust, but hardly a memory is back from the great journey.
What did Man learn from being a mountain? Man learned to rest in wisdom, carry the greatest burdens, give backbone to the smallest, accommodate what to come and move in now. All this and much more, Man learned like mountains, but hardly a memory is left of the infinite rest after the great journey.
What did Man learn from being a plant? Man learned that the earth is a good place to grow, to develop their finely tuned emotional life, that he/she can cooperate and protect each other. All this and much more, Man learned as a plant, but scarcely a memory is left of the great walk from green fern to colorful flower.
What did Man learn from being an animal? Man learned to trust its instincts, that the senses are good guides and that both belonging to a flock and being alone are rich lives if they were lived in balance with those who are still plants and those who rest in the realm of minerals. All this and much more, Man learned as animals, but hardly a memory is left of life in the vast plains, in the infinite ocean and in the deep forests.
Then Man was rewarded, despite what Man has not learned, and was given his individual soul. Immediately Man created strange schemes for life in between, few saw what happened. The humans put one in ten, one in a hundred and one in a thousand. Where the creative process before the chaos changed to creative order, people tried to create order by means of order.
Great teachings were told about how Man should travel far, how to develop wisdom by means of quick solutions, people taught each other to distance themselves from what is easy and to seek what is complicated, human beings learned to listen and obey, and the price was to wait, wait for the one who knew best.
Few people understand that Man, on his long journeys, hid from experiences that could not be presented in words. Few people understand that Man is potentially all the knowledge of the Universe.
Only the greatest leadership allows people to organize their own lives, not intervene and refrain from being better aware.
The greatest leadership knows that humans continue their journey and that the journey is called 'evolution', that Man is potentially all knowledge and that this knowledge accumulates to one day bring Man to independence from his physical body.
Wisdom speaks - the greatest leadership does not reside with emperor or general. The greatest leadership urge the people to run their own.
