Wisdom Wednesday… Inherited Prejudices

How can one’s thinking and decision-making be insightful or leading, if his/her condition is tainted by pre-existing issues? Community relationships are suffering; because today’s power brokers, leaders and family heads all have inherited prejudices from previous generations. Subsequently, suppressing emerging leaders from practicing basic principles, for unity between community members.

“When the Elephants war, the grass suffers” An African Proverb

New leaders cannot move forward without an organized community. They are caught in between the social apprehension of clans, cliques and crews; which prevent social advancement for many. Few organizations are empowering its community or applying relevant strategies a community can relate with; but instead are plaguing its constituency under the following ills…

  • Unresolved founder’s syndrome, communal and tribal beefs 
  • Resistant leadership
  • Lack of education and exploring new concepts
  • Lack of successful professionals, who are relevant with industry standards
  • …all creating “Mistrust”

Leadership being a male dominate arena; most networks are reluctant to consider the woman’s voice. Which is why women are creating and leading their own organizations. Opening doors for young leaders, building empowered and skillful cohorts without prejudice.

For years, prejudices have hindered powerful progress and has only perpetuated a never ending story around…

  1. Ethnic stereotyping leading to subtle racism, overt in some cases
  2. Conflicts between community pioneers
  3. Economic class clash

These are only a few of the “inherited prejudices” that is smothering the little manpower within organizations, communities and relationships. Looking forward, new creatives and educated minds are identifying the untainted talent, for an evolution of social innovation. New leaders are listening to people’s interests, they’re considering critique about their own leadership and performance.

Conflicts develop effective illusions between the hearts of the people. These illusions appear to be believable constructs – after probing deeply can/will only expose its falsehood. New creative minds are exposing prejudices, by occupying themselves with good work and liberating thinking. Allowing themselves to see true principles, that were hidden and/or not unrecognized by prejudice.

There is no room, to carry on any social apprehension and/or an inherited prejudice from a previous administration and/or generation. The people are asking for a revival of community, successful relationships and economic justice. Which can only happen with cooperation, will + ability; empowerment and relevant education.

Wisdom Wednesday are social reminders for conversation – the sharing of honest opinions and wise ideals. All of us have a value worth sharing; it may motivate another to stop, continue and/or begin a certain process in our personal growth or social development.

    I want to share this sentences From Risalei Nur collection by Said Nursi

    Be certain of this, that the highest aim of creation and its most important result are belief in God. The most exalted rank in humanity and its highest degree are the knowledge of God contained within belief in God. The most radiant happiness and sweetest bounty for jinn and human beings are the love of God contained within the knowledge of God. And the purest joy for the human spirit and the sheerest delight for man’s heart are the rapture of the spirit contained within the love of God. Indeed, all true happiness, pure joy, sweet bounties, and untroubled pleasure lie in knowledge of God and love of God; they cannot exist without them.
    One who knows and loves God Almighty is potentially able to receive endless bounties, happiness, lights, and mysteries. While one who does not truly know and love him is afflicted spiritually and materially by endless misery, pain, and fears. Even if such an impotent and miserable person owned the whole world, it would be worth nothing for him, for it would seem to him that he was living a fruitless life among the vagrant human race in a wretched world without owner or protector. Everyone may understand just how wretched and bewildered is man among the vagrant human race in this bewildering fleeting world if he does not know his Owner, if he does not discover his Master. But if he does discover and know Him, he will seek refuge in His mercy and will rely on His power. The desolate world will turn into a place of recreation and pleasure, it will become a place of trade for the hereafter.

      Truly apologize for the late response. Just received my desktop back with all passwords to my accounts.

      Kalim, I totally agree with this wisdom. The more a person come to know themselves and their worship of the Creator, less worries one should have with the world. All Reliance is upon the One Who is Most Reliable.
