Small Implementation of Bataknesse Philosophy


It has been a while since the last time I post something here. I just have a conversation with my relatives. He is older as fact. But we have the same family name, Situmeang. This conversation is the base of this post.

There is a Batak philosophy that said, “Every Batak is child of a king.” The phrase sounds so mighty and strong. But how do every Batak can be the king one day? It is easy. In the Bible, sorry for I use the Bible for it is the most familiar for us in the conversation, written, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” That’s the answer. To be a king, one must seek God first and the closest thing to God is wisdom and intelligence as said in Proverbs book.

That’s quite true. When we seek higher and higher wisdom and knowledge everyone come seeking us for things. We can work anywhere. We can achieve anything. Everyone likes us, anyone needs us. Also when we have more knowledge we can get higher position everywhere.

So it is kinda easy. Be the king by getting higher knowledge and wisdom. Not just for man, because no king can marry a slave. They still have to marry a queen, that makes this knowledge seeking thing is for everryone. Well, the Batak philosophy then implemented and all of us can be king.

But remember. There can only be one king. And once there is still be a king, be loyal to our king. 🙂
