THE TRUTH THAT YOUR MENTOR WON'T TELL YOU: You need money, fame or power to effectively make disciples.
Listen, our society doesn't listen to good minds, it listens to money and property and fame. Don't deny these facts. How many times have people talked sense only to be pushed away by a stupid remark from a mugaga (rich man) at the village?When workshops are planning to invite speakers, do they invite those who know how to speak to people or they invite those who have something tangible, i mean money, properties or fame or honor? Don't run away from this truth. The earlier we accept it, the better.
Yes, I am not saying that i value money over those other virtues of the soul, I am simply saying that it is through money and fame and properties that you can teach the world the intangible virtues of the soul. If you want to change the society and you are neither rich, fame nor a leader, then you are likely going to die without a disciple.
There is this African poorest president, his philosophy is known because he is already a president. Actually, i am worried about those who are on the line to be in one t-shirt for a year just like this Facebook boss or creator when for them are still sleeping in their father's rooms. People will call you mad and they will be right because you haven't acquired the first basic things of life. Even this Facebook creator was at one time obsessed with looking cool until when he became an inventor and famous and thus the power to teach the world his philosophy of not wasting time changing clothes. Shit. Tell the truth and people will put on the right weapons.
Yeah, make money, look for fame, run for leadership and then get the stage to transform the world with your philosophy. See, i may get utmost 20 likes and 10 comments on a good post like this but even if Chameleon posts nonsense, he will score highly simply because he is a celeb and owns the stage. Is it his sin?
Actually, you are better you who has both these internal virtues and even money, power or fame to make them known. I would tell you not to mind since you are already upright but if you don't spread the gospel you have, you will be held responsible too. So find a way to change the world, make money, find a stage where we will hear you speak.
Finally,I am not saying that you start distorting your virtues with your greed for money and fame but don't waste any opportunity that would enable you expand your territories mbu your mentor told you that those things are useless.
Love a lot, live longer.
