Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

    Following leaders and relying on them slavishly is a problem in all fields of life – politics, religion, you name it. It is a major block to any sort of real maturity. In my experience the people who can think for themselves about anything are in the minority. There is a place for leadership, of course. For example, parents need to responsibly guide their children. I am not a church goer, but I can understand your concern. I like your openness and ability to think for yourself. We need more of this in all aspects of life. If we look at the teachings of Jesus He is addressing the individual first. Each person must make the the decision and follow the teaching in her own life. No one can do this for us although a loving community of people can be a great support as we make the journey.

    • You’re right, Mary – this temptation to let others rule (and we’ll simply complain when something goes against our will) is strong everywhere. No one really wants to be a president, but we all would gladly complain about his / her rule (guilty as charged here, I complain all the time…)

      Right – my point was not to say that there should be no leadership at all – but simply that we need to stop appointing “leaders” and not doing any work ourselves.
