This week, I wasn't sure what I would write about. I know I need to finish making my own set of Runes, so the 301 series is nagging at me, but I haven't found the right moment to complete them. I didn't want to do anything political, because that is not what this blog is for. This morning, I got a clear signal about what today's subject needs to be and it deals with leadership.
Sadly, these days, true leaders are a declining breed. To me, a true leader possesses characteristics of fairness and honesty and they should be just. This is what the world needs today. So, this week, I ask the Runes how can we all work to make this world a more accepting and peaceful place by working everyday to be fair, just, and honest.
The Runes ring true - Sowilo, Algiz, and Kenaz.
Some may think my comments around today's reading are naive or too simplistic. We've been trying this for millennia, right? My response to you nay-sayers is that you are part of the problem perpetuating negative views. Look, simply by virtue of our numbers, we have made the world a smaller place. Because of this, we cannot help but come into contact with people who disagree with our perspectives on life. It is at this level where we must begin to seek change, where we can actually affect change. If we want to live in a fair, just, and honest world, the solution starts with us. This is how we serve the public, how we lead; by being kind and fair; by example.
