Some time ago I had written on this subject. Back then I did so for Scout
Magazine “Youth Forum” of the Scout Association of Mexico, AC. Now I would
like to share with you this reflection using new words, as I don´t remember
what I used on that occasion.
When studying for the MBA , one of the professors asked us in class what does
“consistency” mean to you? Several were the responses of the students in that
class: to act according to what is said ... to act according to what you think ...
Given these responses, that old professor said – none are accurate. Consistency
means “To be oneself.” Then he explained that nature is very wise on this issue
because every being acts exactly according to what it is. The bird behaves as a
bird and assumes qualities and acts as such. The same applies to the tree, the
cloud, the rock. Each has a specific function in nature. They were created for a
purpose and act on a daily basis in line with the “mission” that was assigned to
them by the Creator. Of course, they do not possess a will to decide whether to
do so, hence “consistency” is not optional for them....
