DANGER ZONE: Beware of The Blind Leading The Blind

Depiction of blind-folded people lead by a blind-folded person.

by Abeni Bamidele

Surely you have heard the phrase, "The blind leading the blind....." And even if you haven't, I know that you have the where-with-all to have determined that one unsighted person may face challenges navigating his own way through life, much less given the responsibility of leading another who may very well require the same level of guidance.

Before some of you go taking offense, I am certainly not speaking of those individuals who have visual impairments, but rather speak of those folks who lack awareness and insight. One blinded person or group, who have insufficient allowances of perceptivity can very well lead others astray, (if) when given opportunity.

Recently, I had been giving thought to how many people we come across day to day, who lack the type of awareness that keeps them attuned to the Earth-shifting changes we all face daily. Moreover, more thought was given to how potentially dangerous it is when an insightful person may encounter a situation when faced with groups of people who fail to utilize the gift of intuition. When such deficiency is coupled with the over-stimulation of the ego, watch out, as a Molotov cocktail will be brewing.

Sheep are known to be somewhat docile, easily impressionable and able to be lead with little confrontation or apprehension. Perhaps they don't mind when a self-proclaimed shepherd comes along and decides what their fate will be. Or maybe that shepherd is just what the sheep needs as he may think that without the good shepherd, he may lack the resources to survive.

Symbolically we can examine this scenario and make many determinations.  Yet what I can tell you is that if what you are encountering doesn't "feel" probably isn't. That feeling would be the activation of your intuition or your Third Eye right-mind working for your present condition.

But enough on that. I'm not trying to get too deep on you.

What I am saying to you is that you must question everything. Even the things I speak of right now should be questioned by you. Research it. Validate everything before believing it. Utilize your gift of intuition before being lead astray by groups or so-called leaders who know not what they are doing, even when they give the illusion that they are experts in a craft, genre, niche, field of work, or developers of policy or law. 

Whenever you find yourself in a school of fish going in one wrong direction, it is perfectly okay to swim the opposite direction....and quickly. ~ Abeni Bamidele

And finally, words that can serve as a source of inspiration, or a mantra if you will, are said by Siddhartha Gautama, also known as Buddha who states:

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”  -Buddha
