The supreme task of every individual is to understand the role s/he plays in the scheme of society (community). Man is a social being whose presence is made enjoyable only when in a community of others.
Community here transcends the aggregation of people, it means the sum total of all virtues and positive effort of noble minds,effort which together makes life easier for the family of “humanity”
Lets paint a picture,a farmer plants his crops,harvests them and sell to society so all can have food,a tailor makes cloths not because he alone needs to be clad so as to cover his nakedness,he makes it so others too can also cover their nakedness.
A banker opens a bank so as to keep other people money safe.
From these crude illustrations we see how the effort of a person of group of people make life easier and better for others, this is community. A community is made by noble values bestowed by the individuals living in that community,it ma ter not whether the community is a local friendship club,a goegraphical location,a unified humanity.
This being so,our most sacred responsibility as individuals, then, is to blossom our best,the best that ultimately translates into value and builds society in ways we may never be able to understand.
We each have a role to play,though unfortunately many never glimpse of this inner source of infinite “power to excel” but unto those bold enough to dare to be true to themself,they are the prophets of humanity.
Prophets not by seeing into the future but prophets by building the future.
Our future lies on the disposition and act of present day humanity.
Are we going to allow hate and strife tear us apart of are we going to build a heritage for posterity ?
You alone can give the best asnwer to this question,answer not be writing down anything but by showing it in your life style.
” For the earnest expectation of creation awaits our revelation” – Sacred thought
We can only reveal what is inside of us,the universe is pregnant in us,we do not live in a universe, we are the universe or we are the creation that awaits our revelelation(blossoming).
Many people have walked the planet,some were great by doing mighty things while some became great by doing small things greatly. The choice is yours to make,you have to understand the extent of your greatness and move in that direction. Sometimes your greatness can be to do something of value to your local community or even a family only,if thats how much you can do then dont seek to impact the globe rather concentrate on impacting your family or the unit you can serve efficiently.
Columbus discorvered a new world,
Helen keller was blind but effected her world.
Flourence Nightingale was an ordianry nurse but she created the greatest impact on that profesion.
Ghandi transformed india.
Dora Akunyili transformed Nigeria
But also Mary Anderson was just a Real estate agent who invented the windshild( car wiper).
She had the power of observation, how?
In a visit to New York City in the winter of 1902, in a trolley car on a frosty day, she observed that the motorman drove with both panes of the double front window open because of difficulty keeping the windshield clear of falling sleet. When she returned to Alabama she hired a designer for a hand-operated device to keep a windshield clear and had a local company produce a working model. She applied for, and in 1903 was granted, a 17-year patent for a windshield wiper.
Today,not many know that the wiper is not the product of the engineers that designed the early cars.
So once more,remember you must not effect the globe, discorver yourself for who you are and play your role efficiently.
There is more to you than meet the eyes,there is a great and inexhaustible source of power in you.
Society awaits you.
