I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.
When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.
The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.
But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.
They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected: “I AM GOOD”.
Who was it who said, “The measure of affinity and respect you have in your dealings with others is as much as anything else a reflection of how much you like, trust and respect yourself.”
Oh, it was me! But even though it is very real to me, I probably heard it or aspects of it someplace else first.
Here is what some others, far more popular than myself, have said on the subject.
Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.
All initiation of force is a violation of someone else’s rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it’s supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.
Li Ching-Yuen was a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor who lived to the ripe old age of 256 and sired 200 descendants during his life span, surviving 23 wives. Ching-Yuen lived off a diet of herbs and rice wine inculding lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola. In a 1930 New York Times article, Professor Wu Chung-chieh of the University of Chengdu discovered Imperial Chinese government records from 1827, congratulating one Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday, and further documents later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877 (Wikipedia, 2013). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Ching-Yuen
I read this story some years ago. That’s when I added Gotu Kola and He Shou Wu to the Goji Berries I already had in my food bars.
“The key to getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain
Sadly, most people will follow orders – all the way to digging their own graves and standing beside them, waiting to be shot.
Whereas if each victim was courageous enough to take out only one oppressor with him, the oppression would last far less and far fewer innocents would be slaughtered.
But that response from the oppressed requires the high confront of evil, independent thought, intelligent assessment of the circumstances, devising of a workable plan, effective action and execution. Those are not skills the establishment focuses on building when they create an education system to churn out robotic slaves.
