Thank you, Mother Teresa...

05 November 2012, 14:30

Have appalling characters not always inspired heroes? Has adversity not brought out compassion in others? Have suffering and injustice not moved artist to create wonderful works of art?

Then maybe we should look differently at "bad" people. If we enter this life with a contract between ourselves, the universe and our soul group, then we should realise that there must be those who have to play these roles. Roles that are not easy but roles that have not only adverse consequences but also have the capacity to remind us just how awful "bad" is or what love and compassion really are capable of.

Someone somewhere always steps up in times when others have lost faith in humanity, leadership, adverse circumstances, devastating natural disasters, war and love.

With a different view of those bullies and egotistic leaders who have the power to move us in both directions;  those who follow their lead and those who stand up and show them up for what they are - the darker bitter side of life, a fundamental truth is highlighted. The circumstances they create guide humanity to a better understanding, a deeper reality but most of all it reminds us of our unquestionable link.

From Mother Teresa we hear: “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” In contrast many atrocious leaders have the opportunity to rule because as Hitler himself said:  “How fortunate for leaders that men do not think.”

Cut out the middle man

In the interests of saving not only time but clearly vast sums of money, why doesn’t Zuma simply appoint all the Gupta brothers as MP’s? Cut out the middle man. Read more...

Until the day we have a government that strives to assist the economy, and not fight it, and assist people with dreams to get it off the ground, instead of breaking the law, until that day, your dream can not work. Read more...
