The Chi

The greatest source of energy is settled deep within your calmness, buried by patience and contentment.
However, all the energy is without yourself, for you and everyone to use BUT to serve others.

The legend of the masses

When you are dealing with the masses, position yourself in front; the position of influence. When dealing with an individual, position yourself at the back; the position of power.

#quotesbyme

A crooked employer may assume being powerful by taking advantage of your desperation, but you are actually in a position of power because you owe them nothing; not loyalty, no-obligation, not even respect. You can quit whenever you want.
Someone who is above the ladder has the least chances of surviving when they fall.
This, we call servant leadership. You lead from in front, but you consider yourself less important than your followers.

To be a leader with real power, you need to be an explorer and willing to take big risks. Your followers would then be willing follow your footsteps.

If not, then maybe…

if it’s not that African Africans are immune to COVID-19, then it could be that all unhealthy Africans did not last long enough to be caught by COVID-19.
Could it be that our health care is so poor that only really healthy people can survive?
Perhaps countries with better health care systems are receiving a higher mortality rate from COVID-19 due to their high life expectancy rate, meaning they have a lot of senior citizens.

New Curriculum

If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell.

Carl Sandburg

If the current syllabus doesn’t really lean in your favor, introduce a new curriculum, one that you are sure you will excel in.

Before you upset an order, plan for a new order;
The new order must not be a means to an end;
To serve the privileged few, forsaking the weak;
Nature abhors a vacuum, and life must eat life;

#spokenword

Life closes in, always in; never outside.
However much free you live, or you feel, time holds you personally accountable.
Freedom must eat responsibility.

#spokenword

When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, “Why god? Why me?” and the thundering voice of God answered, There’s just something about you that pisses me off.

Stephen King, Storm of the Century

How mysterious is it, that often the poorest give the most, the weakest carry the heaviest and those with the least are the most contented.
Like the saying goes: “the one that receives eats better, the one that gives sleeps better“.

Always Right

My action may be wrong, but my reaction is always right;
My judgement may be flawed, but my intent is always right;
My argument may be biased, but my statement is always right;

Moral Luck

the bible tells us not to point fingers, not to judge and to forgive… because anybody, and i mean anybody, presented with the right conditions, the right abusive neighbors, the right wrong family, the right mis-fortunes, and the right irrationality, the right anger… they can do the most monstrous deeds. most of us are just morally lucky, you are never better than anyone, ever. be humble and pray not to fall into temptation (but remember the pope removed the temptation part from the bible)
