Ooh my friend that is quite a weighty hypothesis! Can we really aim to be a divine anything? Divine = God / god, and even if you mean "spiritual" leader then I think this is only true in the microcosmic sense.. I mean as morph4me says, we can influence ourselves and develop our own spiritual nature. Perhaps in so doing we can influence others of our peers. To attempt to *actively* reach beyond that and influence others worldwide as a self-mandated spiritual leader, suggests to me that the ego of that "leader" is too great to ever support his divine aspirations.. And but that is just my opinion. If a person attains disciples through his actions and his teachings (which will probably be revolutionary otherwise he himself is a disciple) then that is well and good, and not beyond possibliity. Otherwise, if he is *actively striving* to become a spiritual leader, he is at best delusional, and at worst, "cult" and which is never a good thing is it.. I do not know.. what do you think??i believe that; a practitioner of the arts of aiki aims to be a divine leader.
can anyone relate??
