The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. If a man’s associates find him guilty of phoniness, if they find that he lacks forthright integrity, he will fail. His teachings and actions must square with each other. The first great need, therefore, is integrity and high purpose.
Dwight David Eisenhower (1890-1969) American general, US President (1953-61)
(Attributed)

Animals are such agreeable friends — they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

I’d be the first to say that some historical victories have been won by violence; the U.S. Revolution is certainly one of the foremost. But the Negro revolution is seeking integration, not independence. Those fighting for independence have the purpose to drive out the oppressors. But here in America, we’ve got to live together. We’ve got to find a way to reconcile ourselves to living in community, one group with the other. The struggle of the Negro in America, to be successful, must be waged with resolute efforts, but efforts that are kept strictly within the framework of our democratic society. This means reaching, educating and moving large enough groups of people of both races to stir the conscience of the nation.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) American clergyman, civil rights leader, orator
Playboy interview (Jan 1965)

I have a metaphor
that I keep for myself,
I call it "thinking without a railing".
and that's what I'm trying to do.

Ho una metafora

la chiamo ‘pensare senza ringhiera’

"The diamond has a splendour that places it above all the other precious stones. Like the diamond, our spirit is pure light, and we must rise to that light that shines on top of our being, working to acquire true simplicity.
Simplicity is first and foremost a quality of intellect that includes the need to vibrate in unison with the divine principle. From there, it descends into the heart to purify feelings and desires. Finally, the will, by placing itself at the service of the intellect and the heart, introduces order and harmony everywhere. To arrive at this simplicity is obviously difficult. It is necessary to have a lot of knowledge and to make great efforts to be able to strip oneself of all the foreign and contradictory elements that form in the human being an inextricable tangle. If a spiritual teaching gives us so many explanations, methods and exercises, it is to show us how to acquire true simplicity, which will make us diamonds. »

Life in friendship is now, we feel it without having to tell us. It is worth living for this, because there is friendship. It frees everyday life from its character of "task" and existence from any suspicion of "having to deserve it". It is the reward of the living, that you do not have to wait years or in another life. In this sense, just today, for us contemporaries it is one of the most absurd and anachronistic manifestations. It reminds a society that has completely lost the sense that there is no beyond, but that it is already here, that there is something that does not correspond to any fair exchange, it is a space of "unjust gratuitousness", unfair because this is not offered to everyone.

"For a long time incense was reserved for churches, but nowadays, in the West, burning incense at home has become almost a fashion: you want to breathe fragrant scents, imagining that, even if you are engaged in prosaic activities, they will sanctify the surrounding atmosphere. However, it is preferable to reserve incense for spiritual exercises, while remaining aware of what it represents from a symbolic point of view.
As it burns, incense releases a perfume. That combustion is the image of sacrifice. Every sacrifice is a combustion: a material is given to the fire so that its odorous emanations rise up to the Divinity. For us, this combustion only makes real sense if we transpose it to another level, that is, if the matter we sacrifice is our matter, our psychic matter. Those who strive to overcome their weaknesses purify their psychic matter in contact with the spiritual fire of divine wisdom and love. From that purified matter emanate the most subtle scents. »

The paradox of education is precisely this — that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated. The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions, to say to himself this is black or this is white, to decide for himself whether there is a God in heaven or not. To ask questions of the universe, and then learn to live with those questions, is the way he achieves his own identity. But no society is really anxious to have that kind of person around. What societies really, ideally, want is a citizenry which will simply obey the rules of society. If a society succeeds in this, that society is about to perish. The obligation of anyone who thinks of himself as responsible is to examine society and try to change it and to fight it -– at no matter what risk. This is the only hope society has. This is t
