We are immersed in a very rich flow of content, ideas and thoughts, which pass through us every day. In this flow, some entities (people and organizations) have learned to emerge as those who can represent points of knowledge — gurus, experts, influencers. You name it!

There is even a level of conversation about who the top thinkers are, and through this discussion, the role of those celebrated on those lists is strengthened in a vicious circle.

But if we look below the surface, we can see that out of the spotlight there are still people who play their role beyond time and the turmoil of our years. They are Masters. People who patiently cultivated wisdom, not just knowledge, through disciplined and humble practice. Their voices neither scream nor try in any way to claim the right to be more true than others. They are people whose action is not aimed at appearing on the front pages of the newspapers. Indeed, they are often low-backed, bent on taking care of the vital fruit of what is needed.

These people are not outside the logic of the world, and indeed sometimes it happens that some of them are illuminated by the same spotlights that they, in no way, wish to have on them. And it is in those moments that their soul shows the difference that makes the difference.

Instead of using that energy to elevate themselves, they direct it to the places where they have worked all their lives, illuminating the fruit of their rigor and discipline. And thanks to this, they support entire systems of relationships to emerge.

Like a tree that draws energy from sunlight and redistributes it through the intricate network of roots and fungi to all the other plants that are growing in its shadow.

This I believe is what we need. Not giants who intentionally obscure their surroundings to rise higher than others. But Masters, who exercise their mastery with patience in supporting the emergence of new life.
