Welcome to this Sage in a Matrix episode

SAGE in a Matrix Part 1 Scene 1

“Eh, you came all the way out here just to ask my name?”
‘It seemed like the props to do.’
“Who are you looking for?”
‘A man my father said I need to talk with.
“Talk to him about what?”
‘If it is not you, I would rather keep the matter to myself.’
“Well then, holding out his left hand, you look like him, you can call me Mr. Sage; S.G. for short.”

Greetings Courtesy

G’day Perceptive Readers, You will find this Sage in a Matrix topic to start us on the journey today could be placed in proper greetings. In your experience, what does a proper greeting show?

R.E.S.P.E.C.T that’s what it means to me.

This is the first thing you want to know after having a wonderful experience with a product or service.  Who is the chef? Where did you buy that pocket book? Who’s that singing?

I know you can think of many more examples.

Why the Greetings Protocol?

In certain matrix’s pockets, there is a protocol followed that determines the way greetings are given and whether that communication will be accepted.
It is just that important in the Matrix from the Far East to the Far West.
Why is this important?
When you have a wish to work with someone in a Matrix you may find; no, you will find, if you want a personality of high quality to interact with your Matrix (culture); hard rules or policy will have to bend or yield to meet this person of value.

However, as a gatekeeper [1] and in some cases the soul of your Matrix, how can this justly be done to benefit all, or as many possible, who are involved?

Meditate on the following statements:

  • Persons in the same background
  • Persons in a Prince and Pauper analogy [2] (environment)
  • Corporate employer and employee relationship

[1] One that guards a gate. A person who controls access. – Merriam Webster Dictionary
[2] A comparison of two otherwise unlike things based on resemblance of a particular aspect – Merriam Webster Dictionary


Persons in the same background

Between the two of you, your interests and experiences give you a common ground to readily call upon. You may feel this is the easiest denominator for resourceful people to start communication for the first time. It’s like saying, “Hey, I know you are cool; like me, so we will work well together.
To get the conversation started in the same tribe, all you often need are these two things:

  1. An inviting spirit
  2. A Hello

Then you both will say “Let’s get this party started!” Translation; Let’s work together.
The collaboration will bear fruit with ease and speed.

Persons in a Prince and Pauper analogy (environment)

Tracks in the Matrix

Have you heard of Mark Twain?

He wrote The Prince and Pauper

Author Mark Twain
Public Domain Literature (Published in 1881-82)

A story that has been told and written over the years about a prince. And a pauper; a very poor person.

In some classes, it has been considered required reading in abridged or whole form for decades.

You may find this classic story resonates with you as it once did a young lad; so much so, that the lad still recalls a heartfelt lesson learned by both the prince and the pauper. What effect did their experience have upon them? Try this reference out for size.

Depending on what side of the Matrix’s tracks, meaning financially rich or poor, you can still enjoy rewarding relationships with the personality on the opposite side of the tracks.

There are circles of understanding and motus operandi, modes of operation, that works with one group that at times produces conflict with another circle if you are not in the know. Let’s place impetus on there is nothing wrong with you as a person for having an abundance for days ahead, nor only having the needed sustenance for each day.

The word welfare has other meanings than financial support. It also means the basic physical and material well-being of a person. Therefore, you have individuals and parents with medical insurance plans or savings set aside for preventive maintenance and needed medication. Living from paycheck to paycheck, where some are not able to take a day off from work to take care of such needs, is a situation people face. The above paragraph is to make you aware of the mindset why a lot of persons work as hard as they do, often turning down other pursuits, so they can maintain a strict schedule to provide for themselves and their loved ones.

The question that is asked at times, “How can a friendship have any depth of love and loyalty when there are strict list of etiquette rules that form barriers?”

Well in this case, whoever is interested in pursuing or initiating/starting the working relationship will have to be the one doing most of the yielding and understanding. This is not to say one hundred percent of the time; but still, a high percentage of the preparation work will be done by the pursuer.
During the process, your knowledge of the person and their life style will increase ten fold, if not more; for the people who are completely green as they say.
Before you start this momentous undertaking with confidence it is important to keep in mind these thoughts:

Know Thyself
You must stand for something

Thoughts like the above keep front and center you have value no matter which side of the tracks you live on. Therefore, you bring something good to the table.
Be aware of how the motus operandi reveals to both sides whether it is a go or not this working relationship would be a good fit.

Also be aware enough to say exactly what you need for it to work. It is one thing to bend while showing humility for a person’s feelings and desires, it is quite another to compromise the core person (positive personality traits) and the professional in your heart and mind.

All the aforementioned come into play when you write company policy for customer service.

How Do You Greet Others?

In conclusion to part 1, you need to know there are different ways to greet people. During travel you will see these type of greetings. Take an additional stare on the Greetings in Culture listed.

A Casual Verbal Greeting
i.e. Hi and hello.

A Formal Verbal Greeting
This includes a handshake with the hello and stating the title/name of who you are. i.e Mr. Mrs. Miss, author, owner, etc.

A Nonverbal Greeting
With a wave of the hand, nod of the head, and sometimes a fist or elbow bump, people give these silent greetings.

Greetings in Culture
Most people are familiar with the Far East honorable bow. In some cultures they place both palms together like a prayer while taking a bow as well.

Poetry – The Name in You

Trying often to explain
You are a wonderful name

Parents thought about it
Before you were born

Though it was hard to pronounce it would eventually fit like comfy slippers worn

Oh you don’t frivolously give it away
It is a life of eternity made

Take each straight and curved letters few
And match them to life’s work in you

What beauty will appear on the canvases
Only time will tell the tale

That name whether in the public or in private is always on display

What will it show on this day
No matter what don’t haphazardly give it away

Happy your name is when it knows and is you

The forever future is possible as the earth and sea refreshing dew

– James Lynch Jr.
