RECOGNITION OF DESTINY
Sometimes it is enough that one person offers recognition in order for another to claim their greater destiny
"Recognition of destiny"
Whereas the clown sees characteristic details to bring down the overstated individual, the visionary sees the integral wholeness in which an individual operates and so reveals their fullest as yet unrealised potential. We can offer a great service to another by seeing them more than they think they are; a true teacher will expect more of a student than they do of themselves.

Racial characteristics offer a foundation for personal expression
The baby – yet another child with yet another message – has its own story to tell of its race and times, notwithstanding the billions of previous attempts by others to express their own unique tale. Each of us can include far-flung capabilities of our racial coding, our family’s genes and our cultural impressions, as we pull together the focus of our own special blend of talents and attitudes.
Born in only one place, in only one moment, we nevertheless have a multifaceted world, and an age into which we can expand. Who can ever imagine the reach and ramifications of any small event in our lives?
One thing is sure however – that we are an aspect of the process of materialising the universal values of our race into everyday consciousness.
This should not be allowed to become a distracted and completely unreasonable demand for recognition of our culture’s special worth. Such a feeling is likely to leak out into a degree of xenophobic arrogance within the personality.
And yet when we perceive ourselves to be part of something historic and inevitable, greater powers can be resourced within us. To be alone and without a background is nothing; to be a special representative of the great race of China, with all of its vast history and future – this stimulates us to higher aspirations, and empowers us.
There is a symbiotic relationship at play in this. The race gains as much through the individual as the individual gains by having the power and support of a racial heritage.
There are many other factors at play, and yet the teaching here is that we succeed in life to the extent that we are able fully to embrace the particularities of our racial characteristics, as a foundation for personal expression.
