http://trisom.com/html/kitchen_3eng.html Is a man’s character truly his destiny? Heraclitus was a Greek Philosopher who thought so. The statement could also be conveyed as a man’s character is his fate, and even further a man’s character is his god. I think a lot about this when you begin to meet and interact with someone. Asking myself why do they do what they do or think how they think? I suppose at the end of the day it is Character the drives us to make certain choices.
http://yesand.co.uk/106-value-time-for-innovation/ I saw a post on IG today that said “Character is what someone does when there is nothing they are hoping to get in return”. This makes sense to me as so many times we do things because of what we get in return. Let’s face it; most of us are at a job 40 plus hours a week, not because we are expressing our characters or our passions, but because we are getting something in return for our time and labor. I wonder what that says about our society as a whole. And if it’s not OUR character then whose is it.

Their mission and what they believe is a new way of thinking, is to have people helping people in any given community without the exchange of money. Nothing in return! At least that’s the mindset we must go in with. We all see communities riddled with violence, low income/single parent homes. Communities with people hurting and in need. But what about the next door neighbor, can they help out? Lend a hand. Or are they so focused on the varying aspects and issues (we all have them) in their life to see that someone needs them. Ask yourself this question, have you helped in some way at a minimum 5 people in your community? “Who’s Your Brother’s” goal is to help you think about that, and if you want to do something about, they can help.

When was the last time that someone challenged you in regards to your character? I believe that someone’s character can shift at various times in someone life. I know it has for me. Does this mean I have entertained different destinies, fates, or gods throughout my life? I believe it does. I have seen these things play out in my life. But I think being tested to ask yourself who your brother is, is something that has helped me in that shift. A brother treats another brother with love and respect. A brother is family! And family is something that many people have sacrificed for and an idea we can all get behind/understand. That idea seems to fade away when it comes to the neighbor who needs help cutting their grass, could use a couple bags of groceries, or whose son benefit from being tutored in math.
What destiny do you are long for? And are you willing to recognize someone as a brother and serve them to achieve it?
