One Needs To Be both a Taxi Driver and a President

632.2Question: Maggi writes: “Explain to me why the closer a person is to power, the further away one is from harmony? Why did the almighty God create us in such a way that a taxi driver understands better what harmony is than a president?”

Answer: 🙂 Undoubtedly! This is because a president is being corrupted. The king, the president, the landlord, no matter who and how, to the extent of his position is corrupted, and he ceases to see the world directly. It’s like a little child that everyone indulges and adores, he doesn’t see the world, or, on the other hand, when he is being bullied all the time, and he does not know where to go and what to do with himself. That’s where this golden middle is. This is the problem of parenting.

Question: What is it, this middle line? So that the president does not lose his aspirations…

Answer: A person needs to be educated, so that he organizes both rewards and punishments for himself in order to keep himself in the middle line. It’s very difficult!

Question: Does he organize both rewards and punishments for himself? Does this mean he can critically look at his own work?

Answer: Yes. This direction should create an environment for him and keep him in this state. And he must always bend himself under this environment, and constantly direct himself to the result. To be both a “taxi driver and president” at the same time.

Question: And then will he be a good president?

Answer: Yes, then he will.

Question: But there have been such cases in history haven’t there?

Answer: These are unique personalities. Either they are romantics or philosophers who originally had such a purpose.

Question: Will we come to this?

Answer: Until we bring up a new generation, this will not happen. This was happening in the time of kings, Solomon and David.

Question: Can you name the main principle of such education?

Answer: It is when a person rises above his egoism and looks at the world only from the point of view of the common good and draws this line from the Creator down through himself.

Question: He directly becomes a conduit, is that it?

Answer: Yes. He becomes exactly what a king should be.
