Let’s give a shout out to Albert Camus! This early 20th Century philosopher had a lot of ups and downs in life, and among other things gifted us with the following quote:
“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
I think that encapsulates a lot about what OIM is about. I don’t need a Master – I’ve already got one. I don’t want followers – that’d be a wee bit blasphemous. I’m just looking for friends. Then we can all follow our Master together, knowing that he will lead us to lie down in green pastures, and restore our souls.
