Your Reality TV Show Episode 3 (A Rerun)

October 26, 2020

On your Reality TV show, giving the power to define you to your audience could also mean you are succumbing to the values and mores of the time, rather than what is right and good throughout time.  When you succumb this way, you will again always be chasing rather than finding happiness.

How can one be happy when they are doing that which they intrinsically know they shouldn’t be doing.  Life is not a popularity contest, although wouldn’t it be nice if doing what is right, simply because it is right, was more popular?

We could use the Biblical Abraham here as a role model. Abraham is often described as gentle, kind, gracious and courageous.  Rabbi Jonathan Sacks goes a little further and describes Abraham as having lived the “heroism of ordinary life, being willing to live by one’s convictions though all the world thinks otherwise, being true to the call of eternity, not the noise of now.”

“What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.” – Albert Einstein

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.”  – Thomas Jefferson

“Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.” – Omar N. Bradley

Very Important

On your show, always remember to keep a smile on your face

“Always wear a smile. The gift of life will then be yours to give.” — Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Healthy

    Thank you for this important message Fred! When we take a stand to do what is right, then we can inspire others to do the same.
    We lead by example.
