​The Men who Rule Us

It is a quite sad situation to see the extent to which people go to worship their leaders. Everybody likes to see their leaders as infallible and their dealings as sanctimonious. While it remains entirely impossible to wake people from this kind of seductive sort of trance imposed on them by their leaders, we can use such situations as learning material for the purpose of our own Enlightenment.

As I grow older I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do. – Andrew Carnegie

This leadership paradox is eminent in all kinds of leaders – from the political circles to corporate and religious circles. Spiritual sleep is a universal problem that has nothing to do with the civilization and the leadership order of the day. The human mind remains the same since creation.

I have seen people from many different times now and throughout history complain that their leaders don’t do what they say; and what they do they do not say. This discrepancy is rooted in the leaders’ lack of awareness of their own consciousness drivers – their inner nature. The people who lead us are a far cry of the reality of spiritual poverty that has become grounded in all affairs of people.

Lack of awareness makes the leaders to become prisoners of subtle that dictate their decisions and their behavior. This is the sole reason as to why it is of utmost importance to master the mind. Leaders and followers continue to grapple in the dark in the excuse of progress and trying to change the world.

  1. True. That’s the best sign of true compassion for a leader. They must not perceive themselves as separate from human weaknesses and frailties but rather a perfection of human ignorance and thirst for evolution.

  2. Hahaha! Yeah these are some of the vows a philosopher has to take – sometimes you take a side sometimes you don’t. All that matters is whether one is able to get under the bottom of a matter with a keen third eye of awakening. I love Deutschland. Big up!

  3. I hope I did not express myself wrongly here – I wanted to answer curryNcode and say he was rude to show up on your blog and try to tell you how often a day he wants you to post … But somehow this does not show up as an answer to curryNcode … I did not mean your post or your answers to curryNcode.

  4. This is your site. You set the limits (well, under the rules of Automaticc and WordPress – no extremism, no criminal, no pornographic content etc) – but how often you post is your decision alone. I am sure your followers are happy with it or they would just unfollow you. But even if they were not – it is your decision if you want to make them happy or you happy.

  5. Hannover is still the capital of smalltown Germany. We’ve just had a regional election here and we had a better result – less right wing nutters than in the last Germany election and better turn out than the last regional election.

  6. That sounds nice. Germany was the first country I truly loved in the Europe pack I even attempted to study Deutsch language in high school hoping that in future I would have some German engagements. Also I have enjoyed the works of most German thinkers of the early 20th century and before.

  7. Then you have enjoyed more than I have. I usually try to avoid philosophers with long, complicated texts. I like it, when people use their brain, yes, I also like it, when they engage in not solution-fixated thinking. But some of the 19th/early 20th century philosophers have lost me after their first three sentences. The only 20th century philosopher I ever read was Michel Foucault, something about Discipline … And I had to … Ok, if you count Sophie’s world and other books by the same author (Jostein Gaarder) as philosophical, then I have read more …

  9. WOW! Then you are a well-studied person if you can recognize that too much verbal diarrhea is not good philosophy. Am with you on that one. The most interesting philosophy I have learnt from the German Intellectuals is that on the concept of Money. They had an intention of bringing a certain Golden Age in the world, but unfortunately they never lived to see that happen. Talk of selflessness..

  10. Oh, to be fair to them: They were of an age where sentences were longwinded (ever read Dickens? That style, just in philosophy.) – I am not exactly a well-educated person, I failed my exams in law …

  11. Uhm – no – maybe I have read something about him, but as I said, I am not that much into philosophy .. and I am terrible at keeping names in mind. I looked him up – no, never heard about him up to now.

  12. I am not the philosophy type as well. I wanted you to see that true and intuitive intellect and wisdom has nothing to do with passing a couple of miserable exams. After all I have seen many imbeciles masquerading as lawyers yet they cant understanding the basics of the true purpose of Life.

  13. I agree, completely. For, different rivers may appear to serve different purposes and tasks yet they all confluence to the same ocean. This is the greatest paradox of all mankind, that it is impossible to perceive the greater Wholeness of all that live, ostensibly because our egos make us think otherwise. Hence, duality is a thief of true vision.
