The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE REMEMBER TO LOOK BEHIND US


Trumpets sounded everywhere, indicating that the ruling sovereign of the land had something important to say. His army of soldiers, located a long way away, was headed by a very enthusiastic general. As soon as he heard the call he shouted majestically to his men: ONWARD EVER ONWARD TOWARDS OUR MENTOR AND KING, and he held his sword high and led the army along the road to the palace.

The journey was long and hard, yet the general was determined to overcome all dangers and fatigue. After several days of travelling, the palace was in sight. When the general came into the king’s presence he fell onto his knees immediately and swore his allegiance. The king asked him to rise and to turn round, asking what he saw there. NOTHING, said the general. He realised, with great astonishment, that he was completely alone. His army of men was no longer following him.

The king put a hand on his shoulder and cautioned him with these words: I AM NOT YOUR FOCAL POINT. I AM NOT THE DESTINATION ON YOUR MAP. I AM YOUR CONSTANT COMPANION. I AM YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS WHEN YOU WALK. GO BACK, WALK CONSCIOUSLY AND ASSIST YOUR BRETHREN.

The general retraced his steps: on each stage of the return journey, he discovered a few of the men who had belonged to his army. Some had thirsted for water and had fainted in the heat, their throats so parched that they could not speak not make their plight known. Others had followed him out of fear, and chose to leave when he was not looking. Yet others followed him loyally, but decided they were too unworthy to join him within the gates of the palace. Others saw him as a father, but revolted when he took on the role of fanatical leader. Some had led mutinies. Some had disappeared to look after ailing loved ones.

Thus the general learnt much about others and much about himself. He decided to go on a pilgrimage of the land he was living in, in order to learn even more and to serve others. He took on the guise of a poor travelling stranger of no particular status, with no particular destination on his map, yet he was always guided by the telepathic wisdom of the king, who was his constant unseen companion.
