the only truth I know is my own experience

If the whole world decided today to follow You, then where would You lead them? September 9, 2009

I came across this lovely question today and thought   -hey, that is a great thing to ask oneself and my precious readers! 🙂

If the whole world decided today to follow You, then where would You lead them?

So WHERE? share your intentions!

thanks and LOVE; axinia

    I would lead them to their inner, divine beauty,to their beauty.

  2. Where would I lead them? Hmmm… it’s an interesting question, Axinia. 🙂 But the answer is simple, nowhere! 😐

    I would tell the whole world, “Listen, you stupid sheep, I’m not a goat for you to blindly follow me. Sheep that blindly follow the goat invariably end up getting slaughtered by the butchers. So stop behaving like sheep and learn to act on your own. Learn to constantly question things, challenge authority, eradicate blind belief & superstition and act rationally and most importantly, ethically. Don’t believe in anything unless you have sought enough proof and have obtained it. I’m also a human like you and not an imaginary entity whose very existence is a myth”.

    Now that is what I believe is an essential difference, but not the greatest one, between First Worlders and Third Worlders. First Worlders are usually taught NOT to be like sheep whereas Third Worlders are precisely trained to act like stupid sheep being led to the slaughterhouse by cunning Judas goats (and their cronies). This is one of the main causes for the civilisational gap between the egalitarian First World and the semi-civilised Third World. (Of course, as I’ve mentioned before, in a few years time there will be no distinction between the two at all – for the whole world will be forced into becoming one big “global Third World village”. 😡 )

    Don’t lead for I will not follow,
    Don’t follow for I may not lead,
    Just walk beside me and be my friend!

    • You mean to say you will lead them into a better world and teach them to think 🙂

      • No, I wouldn’t lead them into a better world at all, Vishesh 😐 I’m not a powerful wizard who can transform the entire world in a single stoke of his magic wand.

        I cannot teach them to think, either. 😐 I can only tell them to get the ability to think for themselves. One can take the horse to the pond, but one cannot make him drink the water.

        If humans want to act like pack animals like sheep, then they will only get cunning Judas goats to lead them to the slaughterhouse.

    I would show them the path and consequences of darkness and the path and bliss of love, light and peace and tell them to choose and go forward themselves because I believe that any action that a person does is based on their choices and should not be based on what others tell them to do.

    For this question I love to lead them to a path which shows how beautiful the earth will be when everybody love each other..
    but in real sense, I dont want to lead them… I want to walk along with them… as a friend who understands their needs 🙂

    I would lead them to be someone who is genuine without malice…..to be someone who can preserve the child in them and be mature like an adult!!

    How do I do it? well dont know but guess its possible!

  8. Kiran Says:

    I would lead them to see the beauty within ourselves, people around us and our surroundings. Without judging, for a change 😀 HOW???? Is another unanswered question..

  9. axinia Says:

    I guess most of the people who wanted to change the word, wanted to lead it to some imaginary idealistic world.
    I am actually the same type of o person,. However my life has thought me a lesson to be realistic. So now I would say I can only take people to the place/state where I myself presently are.
    Why I am sure I am at the better place/state than most of people? BEcause again, I can see it from my life experiences.

    And the best thing is that I know how to do it
    🙂

  10. I would lead them to kindness…

    What would the world be like if we were simply kind to one another?

  11. Veni Says:

    It will be a real Joy to ask The Divine to lead us to the Land of 1000 Petalled Lotus, nourished only by Pure Divine Love, & to get desolved there in its eternity.
    🙂

    I’ve been thinking about this even more since seeing it on your site – love it by the way- What I would hope is that people who follow, read my poetry, would discover somehow more of who it is they intend to be. Seems this is such an invitation as well.
