Alexander the Great was a king of the ancient Greek kingdom, who succeeded his father to the throne and inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army.
Alexander began his reign by eliminating potential rivals to the throne and established a solid foundation for invading other countries in Europe.
He never lost a war throughout his conquests.
Alexander had spread his authority throughout Europe and firmly established his empire.
Regardless of whether his actions were ‘good’ or ‘bad’, I assume Alexander’s fundamental idea of invading other countries was not to give something, but to take something for himself.
Yes, he acquired huge territory, and his authority surpassed many European countries.
The empire that Alexander the Great established may have seemed to last long.
However, the truth is that Alexander’s empire was divided by his successors immediately after his death.
This splitting up implies that achievement predicated on domination and taking from others, won’t last.
Interestingly, there are no authorities or countries that were accomplished by one man that lasted after his death in history.
In other words, the dictatorship won’t last beyond generations.
Conversely, the action to give others can be accepted beyond race, nationality, and those ideas to take care of others can be delivered to others, and last through the generation of generations.
A great example is the accomplishment of Jesus Christ.
History remarks that Jesus’s activity of conveying the teaching of love to others was just three years.
That is even an enigma of how possibly the three-year evangelism has spread out throughout the world for the last two thousand years.
No doubt that Jesus Christ had no ego at all, and his love and compassion deeply sank into the hearts of those who listened to him.
Last week, I noted that giving to others can match the universe’s vibration, as the nature in the universe is the nature of giving itself.
It is no wonder that we can say ‘giving can bring about the lasting happiness’ when knowing the fundamental principle of the universe to give.
The universe was born about 13.7 billion years ago and will last forever after we are gone someday.
After all, nurturing you to be the person of giving is not a bad idea.
