Management Three French Hens

Many people know the beginning of the Christmas carol, “The 12 Days of Christmas”, however, there is some confusion when you get to the end of it. Is it ten lords a leaping or ten maids a milking? Regardless of your version of the song, we all remember five golden rings and all those birds! The interesting thing is that the French hens are the only ones who have some nationality attached to it. There are no Russian partridges or Asian calling birds, if there are even such things.So how culturally sensitive are we? My grandmother who died at 103+ years old always referred to people by their nationality. One of the first guys I dated was “that nice Icelandic boy” and we used the “Polish plumber”. She definitely had her prejudices so we referred to her as “Mrs. Archie Bunker” and tried to explain to her that we are all from the same melting pot, but she was not buying it.

In today’s PC (politically correct) world, where do you stack up? I admit there are times that I am probably not PC enough, but am at a loss on how to describe some people. I have come to the point that if I even say “look at the man in the red shirt” I feel like I am offending someone.I have been a recruiter for almost 30 years and my clients pay me to narrow down a list of potential candidates and only present a handful. Once I review career and educational experience, there are other deciding factors in choosing one candidate over another. Some clients do not want to relocate people and others want certain certifications. Others have too many of one gender in the upper ranks or do not feel they are diverse enough so that will narrow the candidate pool as well. Still others have rejected candidates because they wore a certain type of outfit (this actually happened) or have expressed a bit too much information (TMI), including talking about their love life.It is obviously a very challenging process that seems to get more and more difficult. In the past, I could say exactly what I was looking for (i.e. Black female) but now I have to skirt around the issue and say “my client wants to see a diverse slate of candidates.” Most will get the meaning behind my words but others are clueless. Even others get angry because they feel they are not contenders because of their gender, race, etc. Unfortunately this is not my decision but my client’s.

So if you are a hiring manager, do think carefully about who you want to hire. Is someone’s past work history and education what they should be judged on solely and keep other factors out of the equation? If not, then we may have ten English lords a leaping, nine Croatian maids a milking, etc. which will make the song that much longer, and an executive search assignment could go on for months while the staff is left unsupervised. Is that what we have come to in this world?

The Invention of Man That Is Destroying the World

Money, finance, the economy, and the impending end of the world are all linked and the reason is obvious. Greed and wealth creation is first and foremost in the minds of most who see nothing wrong with destroying the environment and taking whatever they can from others. Their goal is hoarding as much as they can while showing the rest of the world how great they are. What they don’t know is how poor they are.

Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe it has led me to see the big picture. At a time shown to me between lives it called to take me away from the world and teach me what life is about.

It’s a simple story but one that would be above the heads of most who try to understand it in the light of religious teachings and the greed that has impacted the earth. This is our only planet on which we can live and yet man is destroying it at a great rate of knots to make money and stick it in the bank or some investment portfolio.

Can they in all honesty believe that this is the purpose of their lives. Yet it would seem that it is exactly what they were put here to do.

My first commission is to tear down the wall of blindness and recover God’s people who are caught up behind a wall of lies and confusion. In fulfilling that goal it was important to understand how and why things have developed to this point. We are on the brink of destruction and the earth and all life on it is at risk.

That wall is built by man’s imagination and false gods that have been created to explain life and death. In their efforts to be powerful men devised heaven and hell and used them as tools to rope others in to their opinions and dreams. If they could convince others of their own convictions, then for them they became true.

That’s why religions are now so powerful and rich. The leaders know nothing of the Spirit and they push money ahead of common sense. Through trade and then domination of nations riches became more important than life itself and all one needs do is look at how many suicide when they face financial ruin.

Money is nothing! It has no place in the function of the world except that the Spirit is using it to bring life to an end. Those hungry enough to be caught in its web are overseeing the disaster. That’s according to the prophecies in the Old Testament that promise this day would come.
