Saddam in his underway. Quite a shocking sight, whatever you
might think of him.
My personal opinion?…
I don’t think this kind of thing benefits or uplifts anyone. Some
people are glad that it happened to him, or have very little
interests in his human rights, citing the abuses that he himself
was responsible for. But that’s a mistake.
The fact is that when we demean another in this fashion, or even
take some pleasure in it, we only drag our own spirits through
the mud. It’s hard to elevate ourselves spiritually, or even
improve our positive mindset when we are taking pleasure in the
demise of other people, no matter what their infamy may be.
The strange and sad thing about Saddam Hussein’s plight is that,
all his life, he struggled to win the esteem and appreciation
that he lacked so much as a child. The problem is that he went
about it in totally the wrong way. And this led to inevitable
suffering not only to him (as we see so graphically of late), but
also to the Iraqi people, and to the world as a whole.
It’s a strange fact but, whenever we seek to benefit ourselves
through a win-lose attitude (i.e. I am only happy succeeding if
YOU are losing as a direct result), it is an empty victory. It
does not bring any LASTING pleasure either.
Saddam adorned his palaces with photos of himself in his
“greatest” moments. On one side, you could see this as
accentuating the positive, and to some extent it is. When one has
a clear visual vision of what you want, or want to be, it is much
easier to achieve it (perversely enough, dictators have an
amàzingly well developed capacity for big-picture visualization
of where they want to get to, unlike most of us).
However, it is also evidence of a man who never really found the
self-esteem he had always lacked. He needed to bolster up his
private insecurities with these huge phòtos and statues of
himself. He had to enslave an entire nation. Somehow, this made
him feel better about himself.
And now, what has it all led to? These recent photos could not be
more humiliating, especially to a man so self-involved in his own
That is also why it is important for us, as we grow in our
personal lives, to have a clear idea about what TRUE abundance
and riches really are. It’s NOT about huge palaces, power over
others, or widespread adulation from the masses.
What does it mean to be really rich and to enjoy abundance?…
This is a question you need to ponder for yourself. It’s not the
same for everyone. It’s unique for evèryone.
A superb resource that can really help you to find YOUR answer to
this question, and show you how to attract what YOU want in terms
of abundance and riches, is “Know How To Be Rich” by Robert
It’s so important to really KNOW what true riches and wealth are
all about. Saddam Hussein never learned this, no matter how much
money, power and fear he commanded.
Maybe you and I can?…
