Ibland så så fängslas man av begrepp och innehåll i dessa begrepp Ubuntu är ett sådant. Det går i korthet ut på att vi alla hör ihop.
Första gången jag kom i kontakt med detta var då jag surfade runt i min iver att hitta något bra och intressant att skriva om. Kanske vore det bra att ägna en dag åt att reflektera över detta begrepp och det kanske vore en möjlig väg att gå..
så här beskriver Wikipedia Begreppet UBUNTU
An attempt at a longer definition has been made by Archbishop Desmond Tutu (1999):“ A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed. ”
Louw (1998) suggests that the concept of ubuntu defines the individual in terms of their several relationships with others, and stresses the importance of ubuntu as a religious concept. He states that while the Zulu maxim umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu(”a person is a person through (other) persons”) may have no apparent religious connotations in the context of Western society, in an African context it suggests that the person one is to become by behaving with humanity is an ancestor worthy of respect or veneration.
A traveler through a country would stop at a village and he didn’t have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him. That is one aspect of Ubuntu but it will have various aspects. Ubuntu does not mean that people should not enrich themselves. The question therefore is:
Are you going to do so in order to enable the community around you to be able to improve?
