The Ultimate Sacrifice...

In Chinese Kungfu Culture, the master always keep the last stance from his student.

The same goes for our daily lives. Businessmen always teach their proteges 90% of what they know in fear that the student will outwit the master before his time. This is actually a very bad culture. In a sense, it is to protect oneself, but when looked upon from a bigger perspective, it represents a loss of knowledge being passed down.

Sometimes, it's down to the protection of ones livelihood, whereby, if I teach you all I know, then I have made myself dispensable. This is the view of the world. This is the common practise. That's why, seniors retire with their tricks of the trade and the juniors never get to learn them. The juniors never learn because the senior never teach, in fear that they wil be made dispensable. That's why society doesn't improve!

But the ultimate sacrifice of a true leader is to teach all he knows to his subordinates, without holding back a single thing. This will bring eternal value to the sacrifice. and that's why good people die young. It's because they held nothing back, they fulfilled their destinies ahead of their peers. I believe that you will finish your time on earth when you're able to give of yourself entirely, without holding back. When you've taught the whole world all you know, and you give more than you could, then (it could be that) you have finished your task.

All it takes is a paradigm shift. If we work as if there's not going to be any tomorrow, then we will fulfill our destinies faster. But NO, we humans, we like to store up shit loads of shit. We store up because we want to prolong our suffering stay on earth? Now that's stupid. People have a tendancy to store up riches, information, knowledge, and whatever so that they will be able to prolong their suffering life. How stupid is that!?? These same people are the ones who keep complaining about how bad life is, how hard and difficult it is to live, how they suffer from pressure, and how they cannot satisfy their greed. Then, on lonely days, they think about dying.

So, you wanna go to a 'better place?'

Make yourself dispensable by teaching everything you know to the people around you. Hold nothing back. And you'll see that life is actually not that bad. People have thier own limitations. There is only one person who can take your place in this world, and that is YOU. If you're afraid that your boss will feel that you're dispensable, then the fella doesn't know how to appreciate you anyways.

It's difficult to go against the flow of society, but someone's gotta start changing.

Sometimes, it's difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but take a step of faith and you'll see miracles in your life.

I do firmly believe that the Ultimate Sacrifice will bring the Ultimate Reward.

Disclaimer: This post and it ideology is based on the assumption that people do not betray other people, and that people are actually nice to one another, that they do not work for personal greed and they are duly compensated in their work.

Do not make the same mistakes that led to the downfall of MARXIST Ideology. Karl Marx was a superb thinker, with the ability to think out of his box, and was able to think beyond his time. The fundamental flaws of his ideas were that he underestimated 2 things in human beings.

1. Marx underestimated the power of GREED in man, and
2. In his course of setting Marxist thought as the ONLY ideology, he discarded religion, and in that, he underestimated the power of God.

yes my friend, sometimes you can be darn incoherent. but i still get your point. all of us should give everything we have, and i would like to think that if God asked me, i would drop everything i have in an instant to follow him. but somehow i have a few doubts.. does that mean the culture you describe has gotten to me already?

but at least you know something...

It's difficult to work with people who know that you don't know jack about the topic but yet expect you to perform up to par, and are not willing to teach you...

*I'm confused now...
