The Power of One Series I’m certain she doesn’t know the extent to which she impacted me; even I hadn’t grasped the profundity of her impact until I began thinking about who had. Fonsonia O’Garro was my direct supervisor at N. Brisbane and Associates or N.B.A. (now Brisbane O’Garro Alvaranga, B.O.A.), one of the region’s … Continue reading Ideal Leadership By Example | Fonsonia O’Garro
What we think are our most inconsequential choices in fact have incalculable karmaic impact. What we ate today... Something no longer exists, as it did, in order that we may live. "Who we're wearing"... Is more than brand name clothing, it's who harvested the material and who did the fabricating. There are whole nations and … Continue reading A Brief Word on the Karmic Impact of Even Our Most (Presumably) Inconsequential Choices
Overview Jordan Peterson's talk on How to Change the World — Properly — is one of the most powerful videos I've come across, laying out the modus operandi that needs to be adopted to see positive change achieved for the long-haul. I consider it Vital Food for Thought, leaving nothing to be desired as a … Continue reading Study Notes on “How to Change the World Properly”
What Faith Is Faith is work done in the belief that outcomes hoped for will come to pass as a consequence of the work we do. The word “faith” makes a qualitative distinction between the spirit in which we work i.e. With trust/expectation (i.e. faith) in the reliability of the consequences of our work to … Continue reading Unpacking 1. What faith is 2. What Faith Is Not and 3. Why We Should All Have Faith | Part 1 of the 3
I quite like the concepts behind the "Law of Attraction". I wonder though if it's "attraction" or (natural) "selection".
😐 Sooo, you can do all things through God who strengthens you yet you're "powerless" to positively affect the lives of those he instructed you to love as thyself... 🙄 ☝️😌 Well, either you can't in fact do all things through God as the Good Book says or you can and do but God is … Continue reading Powerless or Wilful?
It's not figures with more commas than the average sentence that changes things. Dollar bills and coins bare the head of deceased individuals — no arms, no legs, no intentions. It's not them but us who make things happen; they are mere middlemen. They bare no power, not even potential. What they do however, is … Continue reading Dollars spent; where’s the change?
There’s life as we know it personally; life as we know it second-handedly; and though virtually always ignored, life as it could be. We have the option of being unwitting consumers subject to the inertia of change or we can assume our intended roles as Architect, Engineer and Contractor. We are the engineers of our … Continue reading We are creators. The possibilities are endless.
There are a few young locals whose views, aims and efforts I respect. But while, en masse, youth grow more vocal in calling for their chance to steer the leader-ship — speaking of the vision youth would bring to it — most seem interested in the same two portfolios, the Ministry of Entertainment and the … Continue reading Youth On Leadership. The Same Ole Lip.
We're to take up our cross daily but what exactly does that mean?
People barely wield sufficient power over their own lives yet the kind of changes I go on and on about require plenty more power. We believe we are too small and our influence too trivial to affect "the way it is". But the way we are, are the atoms of which our reality is composited. … Continue reading You (Are) Matter
Imagine a bodybuilder with no control over his power. He’s breaking glasses and bending spoons, he’s ripping door knobs out of doors as he enters a room. That’s you and me. We have no idea of the implications of our actions and inaction but tens of thousands of seconds of unintentional living daily, creates the … Continue reading 86,400 Seconds
We're taught that knowledge is power but it's more like energy (potential or possibility maybe). True power is in understanding, which is the authority to wield power (knowledge) had. There is no nugget of knowledge that stands valuable all its own. It is the relationship it has with other nuggets that makes it valuable. Never … Continue reading Is Knowledge Power, Potential or Possibility?
Wrong-righting Ammunition-biting, For love fighting Differing view inviting. Shit storm weather-er Status-quo won't accept-er, Truth represent-er Upon you can depend-er. First responder Lover not a loy-er Giver not a lender Family not no friend, nah! Ah beast An officer of the peace Un catalyseur Fiat justitia, Ruat caelum, New way of being, New days will … Continue reading Brave Ones
We've managed to minimize the most profound insights about the power we embody, to the most impotent characterizations of reality. Even our view of karma is reductive, grossly understating our true power, seeing our impact as a 1:1 — what goes around comes back around to you — type relationship when, in reality, our impact … Continue reading Revelations On Karma
