How to Know a Person

There are three ways of knowing people, a rabbi in the Talmud says:

In their cup
With their cash
In their wrath

How true it is that

ill behavior at the table discloses bad culture

ill conduct in business reveals the unscrupulous

ill speaking in wrath proclaims the ignoble.

We Can’t Study

We Can't Study 01

We Can't Study 02

Many times we feel weak at certain area.
However, as we overcome it, we will be able to help those who have the same weakness as ours.
When that happens, our weakness can be a blessing to others.

Expectation

Stop trying to change the universe to work the way you think it should.
Grief is essentially the process of adjusting your mind to accept a radically new situation.
The sooner you accept that you will not get your way, the sooner you will heal.
When you give up wishing things were different, you will start to change within.
Let go of those resentment.
Release your grip on what you want, no matter how good or right you think it is.

As you surrender your expectation, ask the Lord to show you His plan.
Ask Him to open your eyes to the future He desires, and determine to join Him in whatever He has chosen to do.
Take your time with this.
Transformation is a slow and sometimes tedious process.

I Await Your Command

“I await your command.
Command me!”
– Knight (Warcraft III) –

Sometimes, one does not need a deep reason to do certain thing.
Do away will all the philosophical reasoning.
At times, one does thing as it is an order from a higher authority.

Don’t lose to a knight who always obeys order.

When You Live Amongst The Stars

“When you live amongst the stars, you lose sight of what is happening on the ground.”
– Yasha (Ashura’s Wrath) –

It is a good idea to spend some time with those who are less fortunate.
We learn to take our eyes off ourselves.
We learn compassion toward them, thinking of ways to help them.
It is an effective cure of pride and self-centeredness.

When A Leader Has To Make Hard Choices

 

Every chieftain must make hard choices for the good of the clan.
– Killrog’s Father-

There are times when a leader has to make an unpopular decision.
Some of his followers will not like his/her decision.
Yet, he/she still has to do it for the good of the majority of his followers.
After all, there is not always win-win solution in every problem in a group.
In another occasion, this hard choice may cost dearly to a leader.
Still, he/she should grit teeth and bear through the hard choice with guts.
