Heroes are not heroes for no reason. They are that kind of person. They are heroic. Heroes in stories often die. Sometimes, they have to. That is the way of heroism. Since you, too, have to die at some point in the future, why not a die a hero? It is an honourable death. It takes some doing to get your actions registered as heroic. That means it is not a walk in the park being a hero. It is a very serious calling and those that decide to become heroes in life – or death – should be acknowledged with our gratitude. A hero has focus, vision, to see a mission through and deliver reached goals with maximum efficiency.
There are many heroes walking the face of the Earth. Theirs’ is a legacy that speaks for itself. When you save something or put your life on the line for a cause in which you believe and you do so with a fierce passion for what you represent, you begin to understand what heroes did historically – what they still do – and why they do it. A hero is a person who helps others, a person that understands loyalty. That is why their value. They are resourceful, enterprising. They are very good at what they do. Heroes are still required and it is just as well that they do exist. This world has not been saved yet.
It is time to stop avenging the deaths of former ‘heroes’. There are too many men chasing each other around brandishing death because of dead heroes. What is the point of that? You do not teach your son that he must kill his neighbour because the boy’s grandfather killed yours. That is stupid thinking. The business of vendettas is a big business, understandably, there is a firm principle behind an eye for an eye, but there are ways to do the things you must do to balance the scales of justice without compromising your soul. It is important to know this.
In order for military force to be eradicated from this world, all the countries on the planet would need to be trustworthy. They are not. Can you imagine North Korea ever opening up and becoming trusting of the rest of the world? You cannot trust them to be open for one minute. They are paranoid. Scared of watermelons. And that is dangerous; it makes for reactionary, trigger-happy. Certainly they are not the only ones who do not trust in this world. In fact I do not think any leader trusts any other leader, really. I am not surprised. Each has their agenda to try and squeeze into the Universal schedule and it would seem that when time is measured, as it is, there is no space in the calendar for charity.
The best loyalty is that which develops through ongoing mutual trust. You cannot force loyalty. You cannot employ fear and expect to be shown loyalty. Ever. Fear may force allegiance, but it cannot force loyalty. At base-level, loyalty is what you want. It is what you need in this life. When it comes to loyalty, tread gently, respectfully. You are working with heart. You cannot force your heart. It should be said that a forced hand is not a happy hand. It may do your bidding, but it will not move to save you when the tables are turned. And believe me, the tables are always turned.
A forceful spirit is not what to aspire to. Please remember, spirit is gentle. Unless it gets extremely angry. Let’s keep the collective spirit, calm. Understand that because of the way we have all built Earth, force is occasionally necessary – to explain in this day and age to a mindset warped by violence – that violence is not acceptable. After countless experiments it has been established that this is the only effective measure (with the majority, the masses) in getting a violent mindset to stand down.
