Upside Down?


“… and then he bean to tell a most disconcering tale about a country bumpkin who became an important official during a time of political upheaval… [he] was appointed minister, or governor, or perhaps even president, because there was no way of telling what people would do in their follu. Becuase of this appointment he came to believe that he was indeed important and learned to put on an act.

…[he] was very good at public appearances and could whip up a speech with no difficulty at all, but his position required that he read his speeches, and the man was illiterate. So he used his wits to outsmart everybody. He had a sheet of paper with something written on it and flashed it around when eer he gave a speech. And this his efficiency and other good qualities were undeniable to all the country bumpkins. But one day a literate stranger came along and noticed that the hero was reading his speech while holding the sheet upside down. He began to alugh and pointed out the lie to everyone.

… he faced everyone calmly and said, ‘Upside down? Why whould the position of the sheet matter if you know how to read?’. And the bumpkins agreed with him.”

Taken from Carlos Castaneda’s “Tales of Power”

It’s Been A While


It’s been a while…
It’s been a while since I’ve felt a sensation of quiet being
It’s been a while since pure beauty has tapped me gently on the shoulder
It’s been a while since I’ve been clear enough to appreciate it calling out to me
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a beautiful sunset
It’s been a while longer since I’ve run to get the camera and capture an image of one.

It seems a that shooting down leaders has become a very popular sport – the popular excuse for it is that they do not demonstrate the leadership expected from them. I always cringe a little when I hear this. I feel that leadership is largely misunderstood. Leadership is not something that a leader does – it is about a relationship – and like any good relationship the responsibility for it is (or at least should be) shared.

I am not sure that in order to talk about “leadership” I am required to first talk about “leader”, but I do think it will give these words a context. To me a leader is someone who can shoulder the responsibility of facing unknowns. I believe that life is a process of evolution and that evolution takes place when known clashes with unknown. A leader facilitates and embraces this clash – the result of which is change.

The trap is now set. Read More »
