Bottom.  A group of people are searching for someone to
lead them, but they are confused because every member has a different idea
about what kind of person it should be. Nevertheless, if they will express
their needs and wants to prospective candidates, the right man will reach out
to them, and they will know immediately that he is the correct leader for them.
By choosing someone who responds to their needs -- someone who their hearts
tell them is the right person to lead them -- they will make no mistakes and
will avoid choosing the wrong person.
2.  The forces that draw people together are generally
below the level of consciousness, and it is best not to try to analyze the
attraction too minutely. People come together because it feels right, and
because they gain a sense of positive reinforcement from associating with a certain
group of other people. This is reason enough, and a person will make no
mistakes follow his intuition in the matter. When people are attracted to one
another at this deeper level, there is no need to devise any complicated
intellectual explanation. The simplicity and open frankness of minds
communicating with one another at an honest, informal level is reason enough to
3.  A man may feel inclined to join a certain group, but
upon trying, he feels like an outsider and is unable to penetrate to the inner
circles. He feels rejected and discouraged. The solution is to seek out one
particular individual who is a true insider in the group and part of the
leadership. By introducing oneself to him, getting to know him, and explaining
one's desire to be a member of the group to him, this person can introduce the
man to other members and help him become accepted. This is an entirely proper
way to become a part of a close-knit group, and is perfectly proper when a man
is unable to find acceptance on his own.
4.  When a man seeks to organize a group on behalf of a
worthy person, he makes no mistakes. He is doing this, not for himself, but for
the support and benefit of someone else. His selfless attitude attracts people
to him and to his cause, and that brings great success.
5.  A superior man in a position of power and influence
naturally attracts many people to himself. There is nothing wrong with this,
because this is the way a person of influence functions -- working together
with other people who know, recognize and respect him. Inevitably, many will gather
about him, not out of respect, but because they realize the man may be of use
to them by virtue of his power and position. Their sole interest is what they
can get from the relationship. Nevertheless, if the man impresses them with his
integrity and dedication to duty, even those people who only want to use him
will be moved, and will give him their whole-hearted support.
Top.  A man who wishes to join together with another may
find that his intentions are misunderstood, and the other rejects him with
disdain. There are many ways a man may respond to such treatment. Some men,
misunderstood and rejected, might become angry and scornful, returning angry
words for such rejection. That is a sure way to make the rejection permanent.
But a superior man who was misunderstood and rejected would feel hurt such
treatment. If he openly and freely allows himself to act hurt, explains the
misunderstanding, and withdraws, he will find that the other man, if he himself
is a decent man, will likely recognize the misunderstanding, apologize for the
rejection, and make amends by taking the man into his fellowship
