You are meant to be a leader. If you are a follower to be, then you are to follow Me, beloveds. And let no one come between Us. We have a unique bond, and no one is to untie it nor put himself or another between Us. It is you and I. It is your own heart you are to heed. It must be so, beloved. Besides, you have had enough of following other hearts. No one is your master. Your heart is your master.
When you spread your eyes on the details of the world, you see details. You see the stitches that were made. You see all the twists and turns and back and forths. In your looking at the specific, you may overlook the overall. Beauty is vast, and unbeautiful is small.
If you were not concerned with what the world or someone in it might think of you, you would be a great leader of love. You would never hesitate from what is before you to do.
You would get up front and speak. You would always speak the truth, and you would speak it with love. You would be the leader of the universe.
All the rules of the world, no matter how changeable they are, have been like a clamp on you, and perhaps have made you feel like an outsider in your own land.
I have put out a call to arms. Arms in this case means love. The love We speak of now does not mean affection. It is much larger than that. It means understanding. It means being pliant, receptive, awarding. It means being something like a Buddha sitting still with a smile and seeing beyond the obvious.
You talk about life as an entity: How you greet it. What you make of it. You say to face it, as if life were your foe, as if life were a wrestler opposite you, out to get you, trample you to the ground.
A true leader inspires. A true leader takes responsibility gladly. He is the servant who serves others through his leadership. It could be said the leader is the one who does most of the work. Certainly, the overall responsibility lies most on his shoulders. May his shoulders be broad and willing. May his happiness lie in his serving gladly and contributing to the whole.
