Tao # 58 / Good Governance

Ф

the greatest rulers are unobtrusive
thus the people are happy
and life is good

mediocre rulers are heavy handed
thus the people go crazy
and life is cruel

When dynasties are able to rule
then eventually we are led by fools
who spout out platitudes rooted in faith
inarticulately leading the nation to shame

such leaders milk disaster for good photo ops
run the country down till the markets flop
they find their fortunes in the winds of a hurricane
getting pictures of themselves flying over in a plane

these are the leaders who like to be seen in church
praying like crazy, to the point that it hurts
not them, because they are good at what they do
they have learned to bushwack you

the sage plays it square
is pointed yet fair
pointing he doesn't pierce
he is strong but never fierce
straightens without straining
just but not judgmental
he is bright yet not blinding
modest but not submissive
demonstrating DivineUnity
a prime example
of how each of us should be

  • Why are the greatest rulers unobtrusive?
  • Why is the heavy handed ruler mediocre?
  • Why do dynasties lead to the rulers that are fools?
  • What is a platitude?
  • Can you think of any examples of rulers who loved photo ops but led the makets to flop?
  • What does bushwack mean?
  • What does playing it square mean?
  • Where does the term "on the square" come from?
  • How do we demonstrate DivineUnity?

True Spiritual Paths are personal adventures in deeper discovery. Most people are told what to believe and never question that they were told. In cultures dominated by weak faiths promoting the dominator model of living, traditions are reinforced by legal codes which may even be backed with the death penalty. Yet for the person who is strong and listens to the Divine within, a new journey begins regardless of the presence of oppression. These are the folks who have a New Thought. They begin to question and their questions lead to deeper answers. This is why New Thought is growing around the globe. In contrast to the dominator model of social organization, the partnership model is emerging or re-emerging as the superior social structure. Recent biological breakthroughs supported by economic analysis support these conclusions. Computers have enabled mathematical analysis of economic data demonstrating the importance of human rights in the face of economic abuses around the globe. Wisdom is the combination of intelligence with compassion. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights ensures the ability for all people to live to their full potential. Explore New Thought INFO.
