Our love networks

How can we become peace-sources?

1. Disenergizing people are avoided. People spreading negative emotions are avoided by all others. Those leaders are inefficient who spread negative feelings around themselves. If I exude positive emotions, empathy and satisfaction around myself then I become the central point of my social network. On the contrary, if I spread negative feelings, I get to the very periphery of the social network. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

 

2. Our love networks. How can we create love around ourselves? We are very lucky. Love can be spread. We are very unlucky. Hate can be spread, too. Anger spreads five times faster (and makes five times more damage) than joy. Let us be open to the love poured upon us even if it does not come where we wanted to get it from. If we forward love to others persistently, then after a while we notice that we are reached by love, too. Let me encourage the Reader to write a kindness journal for a few days. If the ratio between our good and bad deeds is much worse than FIVE to one, then we should think about how we could change this in the future. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

 

3. How can we become peace-sources? Accepting and forwarding love and thus the enrichment of the love network around us is realized in small steps. As this feeling becomes permanent in our lives, it is not love any more we experience, but peace and serenity. The one who has found the source of peace becomes peace-source himself in his surroundings, too. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

What are the best qualities of a good leader?

Thoughts about a life spent to serve others in love

1. The trap of a self-centered life. It is a great experience of development when a child realizes that he is able to live his life alone. From one will comes the next, and from the next will comes another. In the big rush to grow this willpower bigger and bigger this giant will never thinks about what is the broader aim of what it actually wants. The time will come when man gets tired. He still wants something but he is not able to fulfill all his wills any more. Midlife-crisis sets in. Our poor fellow realizes that he has become alone in the big rush. He has reached his limits: he has burnt himself out. A lot of people finish their lives here. Old age comes but it is only a prolonged agony of a man falling apart. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

 

2. What are the best qualities of a good leader? The strength of service. It is possible to break out from the circles of the "self-made man" that closes himself inside himself, and after reaching our full potential we can discover the world’s "deep dimension" again. The key to the discovery of the world is: the strength of service. God wants to use us all for awaken the good in others. The good can spread only by the power of example. The only example that really reaches and affects the other person is the one that we serve this other person unselfishly with. A good leader listens and serves. A good leader deliberates, and tries to shepherd the community assigned to him towards the golden mean always supporting what the majority of the community do NOT want, moreover, what is not even needed just then. A good leader is decisive, responsible, peaceful, humble and knows when to resign. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

 

3. How can we change the life of our environment to happiness? Fulfillment in a life spent to serve others in love. What is service? Service is passing the love to others, which was given to us by God. If we became open to accept the love of God, it is impossible to keep it in ourselves. This is how to serve others in love becomes a way of living. This is how we become love-sources in the life of all people around us. Thus, a good leader is the love-source of his environment. This is THE best quality of a good leader. (If you would like to read more about this, please read my essay here.)

A biweekly blog of short essays offering deep thinking on the meaning and purpose of human life

The blog is a continuation of its Hungarian predecessor reaching 1.3 million clicks

 

The blog is a continuation of my Hungarian blog (its Google translation can be read here) operated between 2009 and 2012 reaching more than 1.3 million clicks. Posts appear on each second Friday and hope to please those Readers, who feel responsibility for their spiritual development, other human beings, their natural environment and for the whole World.

 

During the past years my spiritual life and thinking have both deepened and intensified. Since the beginning of 2017 I meditate at least one hour per day (that can be considered more and more a contemplating prayer), I regularly participate in spiritual retreats providing and requiring Silence, and I visit places offering spiritual engrossment. Besides experiencing and spreading love, values like wisdom and humility have become much more important to me than before. These changes are reflected by the Luther rose in the header of the blog that also refers to my Lutheran faith. One of the 2017 Golden Mother Award winners, Zsuzsanna Szilvássy Kecskemétiné summarizes the essentials of being Lutheran as follows: "This is an open, welcoming, very friendly faith.” I agree with her. Several thoughts of the blog will help spiritual enrichment. I hope that these thoughts will support deep thinking of those Readers too, who do not consider themselves believers.

 

I am full of ideas, which I wish to share with the Readers. At the same time, I also wish to learn from You. I invite the Reader to register at the blog to make comments, and join the blog's group at Facebook and/or at LinkedIn. I would like to thank Your help to build a deep thinking blog community, where members share and modify each-others thoughts!
