One should not just act on blind faith.  It is important to understand one’s place within the situation.  There is “ thunder” - an “outburst” - and then things return to normal.  Intense activities of responsibilities fade away into the more relaxed and restful life of a person who no longer has much importance in deciding the events of the day.  Yet, whom should one follow?  As Leaders are chosen, choose wisely.

______________________________

THE CHALLENGE - LINE 4:  To persist in following someone with ulterior motives will bring misfortune.  It is evil.  But going one’s own way with sincerity as one’s beacon produces brilliant results.
