‘The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.’ Elie Wiesel
Hello friends on fire. I am most excited to be on this page today. For me, the topic that has taken us more than five days is very dear to my heart. The truth is that God is purposeful to create you for no just cause. He is also too faithful for Him to create you for a cause without making adequate plan to equip you. The foregoing underscores the philosophy to making something great of yourself.
Your presence here on the earth is an investment. Your breath your most precious possession. Think about it. I guess that is why the Holy Writ submits that a living dog is better than a dead lion.
I believe that every human being irrespective of his circumstances of birth and present situation or condition (as long as he has breath) must take personal and full RESPONSIBILITY to discover, consciously and consistently engage and stir this God-bestowed inner capacity to an INSPIRED degree of ‘No Fear, No Surprises, No Hesitation, and No doubts,’ (as postulated and practised by the seventeenth-century Samurai Warrior), where he has the uncommon faith and unbowed mind to DREAM all things, to DARE all things and to DO all things.
My lifetime mandate is ‘to see people (young and old) live INSPIRED and empowered to achieve personal peace, inner satisfaction, effectiveness, and outstanding results in every area of human undertaking by the exercise of dexterous mastery over the affairs of their lives, families, organisations, nations and continents of the world, irrespective of the seeming hopelessness of their situation.
The Life Mandate is simply summed up as healing the world, beginning from Black Africa of ‘Human Ingenuity Drain'(HID) or ‘Change-Consciousness Deficiency (CCD).’ Elie Wiesel call it ‘indifference,’ which he elaborated thus: ‘the opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.’
Many are today, particularly in Black Africa, flung many miles away from their realities and are indifferent to their own personal progress, not to talk of their fellow human being. Many are also, blinded by their personal comfort and are indifferent to the yearnings of others. Yet many are whose all senses of compassion and selflessness are numbed by the fear of the consequences and inconveniences of seeking positive change and are indifferent to the deafening cry of the world around them.
Where are you in the foregoing categories? I think it calls for careful pondering. I will like to stop here today. See you next week and have an INSPIRED Weekend.
