    _________

     

    Help those who physically can’t help themselves.

    Help those who mentally can’t help themselves.

    With the rest, you only help them enough to enable the to help themselves.

    _________

     

    You're not here to help people. They are here to help themselves... until they finally get over themselves. You'll find few souls in this world who have successfully gotten over themselves, maybe none at all. Graduation of life usually means immediate death. If you ever get over yourself, you'll more likely die then be granted the free reign to stick your nose into the battle being waged inside other people. In other words, tread lightly around the sovereignty of the individual.

    _________

     

    You’re not here to help other people. The only exception to this would be your children or those who are genuinely incapable of helping themselves. Become the best version of yourself that you can imagine. Let others watch you if it pleases them, however their time would be better spent transforming themselves. Why so many people relegate themselves to become a mere passive spectator to the transformation occurring in others is a mystery for the ages. If life is a game then the rules have nothing to do with the “other”. Contrary to what your upbringing tries to brainwash into believing... the game is played within.

    _________

     

    You can’t fix other people’s problems and they can’t fix yours.

    1. You have your life. They have their life. 
    2. Stop interfering in the lives of others. Stop others from interfering in yours. 

    Accept people with their flaws, or not at all, because most people will refuse to change.

    _________

     

    Your desire to be liked is a weakness, an embarrassing weakness. People who are in their late teens will point this out to you. Sometimes it seems like those who are now 40 years of age have long forgotten this truth, a symptom of living for too long in polite adult society where plain words are seldom spoken.

    _________

     

    Nice is an antonym of authenticity. Being nice is not an authentic way to live. It’s inherently pragmatic and manipulative. The Great Intelligence that pervades this universe blesses those brave enough to live with raw authenticity in their way of doing, moving and thinking. Stop placating people and you may even help them to eventually help themselves.

    _________

     

    Nice isn’t really nice:

    “Please” nowadays is mostly used in a nasty or fake tone.
    “Thank you” is the same, or at other times just awkward.

    “Sorry” is rarely sincere, like 1 in a million.

    "Congratulations" is foully obligatory and insipid.

    “You’re welcome” is overly formal, a relic of bygone eras.

     

    Avoid these tarnished terms. They died long ago and hover our cultural interactions around like linguistic apparitions. If you can’t think of modern terms on the spot, be extremely careful of your tone using the old arsenal of social politeness, those verbal blades are so blunt that they just make a mess of emotion you were trying to convey.

    _________

     

    Giving money to a person is 1000x better than giving “thanks”.

    To thank is cheap, it's way too easy.

    _________

     

    Being called “nice” does not mean you are a nice person. They call you “nice” when they think your words or your behavior feels safe to them... that you will not harm them. Being nice usually means an inherent process of lying to yourself. When they say "you're not being very nice" you momentarily feel bad however in your long term you'll slowly build an inner strength and belief in yourself by knowing in your heart that you act truly with the utmost authenticity.

    _________

     

    Modern schooling espouses the so-called virtue of "social acceptance" over the traditional value of intellectual competence. They train you to be a good talker to get out of problems instead of simply training you to be a good intellectual solver of problems. It's no harder to teach the science of logic than to teach oratory arts.

    _________

     

    There’s more to sapien life than impressing other sapiens.

    Look within... in search of a meaning that is greater than monkey love.

    _________

     

    People seem to act like Life is a competition won by speaking the most words. Socializing and momentary giggles are, for the most part, devoid of any significant spiritual meaning. Time to cut the chit chat and face yourself. Quit this frivolous avoidance of self-exploration. Obviously we all need some frivolity to relax, just don't allow it to consume every available free hour of your week.

    _________

     

    The people who think they are crazy

    aren’t nearly as crazy as the ones

    who think they’re aren’t crazy at all.

    _________

     

    People call you 'obsessed' when all the glorious fervor from your inner potency makes them feel inadequate when compared to their own spiritual limpness.

    _________

     

    Sometimes it feels like the entire outer world of people is an extravagant non-reality, in the sense that this world's inter-personal culture is one of bullshit stacked on top of previously established ideological bullshit. A place where everyone lies to each other in some ridiculous interconnected web of pretence. People have honed their linguistic skills to best serve a role in the avoidance of personal responsibility. Shirking of responsibility is so endemic as to become the Western culture’s prevailing art form. The vast majority are willing participants in this renunciation of individual accountability en masse. Most of human interaction, especially during commercial roles, is developing into a kind of mutual deception: without any soul daring to call the other out. The whole charade spirals society downward and will continue unabated for as long as people are collectively content to relegate the virtue of “objective merit” to sit out of the game altogether. Merit is benched. An appreciation of genuine merit is a ideal used by civilizations from the past to ensure progress and prevent any "lingering" in a sycophantic mode of patting each other on the back for trivial re-arrangements of the status quo.

    _________

     

    You can't really ask someone to love you more from the outside than you love yourself on the inside. That may be impossible.

    _________

     

    The only person who will love you more than you love yourself, other than your mother, is a person who hates themselves more than they hate you.

    _________

     

    If you are being ignored, immediately stop talking. Stay quiet until you find a soul who respects you enough to actively listen. Most words you send out won’t ever be decoded by the people you speak them to, those people can’t be bothered decoding your various messages because they so damn busy trying to decode their own self-talk. You are trying to interrupt their own ongoing conversation with self.

    _________

     

    Why do people find it so hard to listen? People can only hear you if they’re willing to stop berating themselves with their own self-dialogue for just enough moments in succession in order to listen to you.

    _________

     

    Do you have the inner strength to be able to say: ‘You are right and I am wrong.” If you can’t even imagine ever saying that, you don’t deserve friends who also have this degree of humility.

    _________

     

    Weak minds find the truth so confronting that the only way to make truth palatable to such fragile minds is by camouflaging it with humor.

    _________

     

    If people don’t respect you, you’ll need to be willing to eventually walk away. There are no exceptions to this, it includes best friends, family members and your lover. If you experience any more than several instances of a person showing disgust towards you, then you walk. When you walk away, never come back. Move on to a life where people show you at least a decent level of respect.

    _________

     

    On your deathbed you won’t be glad that other people liked you. You’ll be glad if you liked yourself enough to treat yourself well. When you treat yourself well, there's a secondary effect that you’ll then tend to treat all other things well. Your primary conversation is the ongoing one with yourself.

    _________

     

    If you reward people for mistreating you.... then you’ve been over-civilized.

    _________

     

    1. The tragedy of youth: socialized schooling.
    2. The tragedy of aging: big pharma.

    The former turns you into a chicken and the latter makes you a guinea pig.

    Dignity is something you have to give to yourself.

    _________

     

    The school that demands compliance is a prison, not a school. The administrators need to be reminded that their primary role is to educate children, not enforce order for the sake of the teacher's peace of mind. Most schools seem to think their primary role is the means, rather than the end.

    _________

     

    You didn’t come to this planet to devolve into a shameless people pleaser. If you can locate even just the first shoots of dignity growing within your own conscience, it will swiftly cleanse your soul enough to want to be cleansed some more. Stand up for your beliefs and let others stand up for their own.

    _________

     

    The great error of politics is the mistake of conflating popularity with truth. Popularity is neither true or right.

    _________

     

    Electing one individual to represent hundreds of thousands of people is far from ideal. It becomes sheer political madness when such a crude "representative" system continues during any age of humanity in which each person can submit a vote digitally in under one second and at a financial cost so low as to be considered negligible . The political class was made perfectly superfluous decades ago, yet still these childish souls linger around the houses of power looking to manoevre and manipulate in an attempt to satiate their repugnant lust for power over another.

    _________

     

    You become a man’s man when you stop competing with men beneath you and try to help them up. You do this not out of some prideful need to appear virtuous, nor out of a need to be liked, but rather out of a simple respect for merits of manhood itself.

    _________

     

    The soft are always trying to act tough.

    The people who are really tough are conscientiously trying to soften themselves in their general demeanor. The tough broadcast some softness, as a mode of self-healing, until you push them too far at which point they revert.

    _________

     

    If you are on your deathbed asking yourself “did people like me” then you’re the biggest loser in the world.

    May heaven cast your soul straight back into the body of an infant, let this cycle be perpetuated ad infinitum until you figure out how to be yourself.

    _________

     

    Your coffin awaits.

    Rock the damn boat, even if just to see the face of the normies go hysterically twisted one more time.

    _________

     

    God help you from the nit-pickers.

    If they can’t read between the lines, there may be no saving their soul.

    _________

     

    ‘Nice’ is an ugly word.

    Maybe the ugliest of them all.

     

    You have a choice to be nice or real.

     

    ‘Real’ is a beautiful word.

    Maybe the most beautiful of them all.

    _________

     

    You’re more likely to be liked if you don’t need to be liked.

    The ‘try-hards’ anger the universe for violating its laws.

    _________

     

    As a general rule, I don’t stay friends with people who ignore everything I have to say. Why would I keep wasting my words on those who have a perfect history of disregarding my sincere intention to help.

    _________

     

    Better no friend at all than have 100 fake friends. For even if you have no friends, at least you'll have some peace.

    _________

     

    There’s no honour in virtue,

    There’s great honour in shunning any call to virtue.

    There’s honour in truth, no matter how devoid of virtue it's expression might seem to be.

    Truth serves all, a service rendered only when somebody is brave enough to be honest with themselves and thereby automatically honest with others around them.

    _________

     

    The only genuine way to be compassionate is to reward others based on merit.

    Every other approach is simply your grandiose virtue-signalling running around the place hurting people.

    _________

     

    The two great faiths:

    • faith in yourself
    • faith in your ideas

    Secrecy is power. Most people will rob you of your faith.

    _________

     

    Repeat after me a million times:

    “it doesn’t matter what other people think of me,

    what matters is how I see myself”.

    _________

     

    I'm pointing to the spiritual truth that there's no spiritual progress without facing yourself. And as long as your putting all your attention on friends, family, lovers, children, the neighbours, your work colleagues… then basically you're avoiding that conversation with yourself that could allow you to move forward. I'm at war with idle “chit chat”. Chit chat is a waste of time. Face yourself, with the use of silence and solitude you can begin a deep conversation with your higher self and maybe even make it a three-way with God.

    _________

     

    As conscious beings we swim our lives in a sea of other’s people judgment of us. It’s gross. Only the very strongest among us are able to swim to the surface and take a few brief steps on dry land. Doesn’t seem like much, but it only take a few moments of clear thinking to see the best way forward.

    _________

     

    If people aren’t often calling you “eccentric” then it’s because you’re hiding your innermost truth from them. You are continually choosing to live in an untruthful manner in order to fulfil there expectations of you. You acquiesce because your innermost truth was never previously received well. The people who are boldly living a true life have already accepted that it will never actually be received well, they’re okay with the resistance coming from others. Let the dreary ol’ souls scoff, let them mock, and you’ll never let them take your soul. Mockery is a signpost that you’re heading in the direction of your dreams.

    _________

     

    Is courtesy just an agreement to lie to each other?

    _________

     

    In order to make yourself proud, you’re always going to need to disappoint other people. It’s just how things work. People will rarely, if ever, want for you what you really want for you. Nature won’t lower the bar of this hurdle. You must overcome it under your own Will. You must choose yourself and in so doing clearly indicate to other people that they should do the same. We can all do what we want, if we get out of each other’s way. Honour’s people right to chase outcomes that sound crazy to you! It’s their life, let them meet with the consequences of their own making and in so doing, they can learn from it.

    _________

     

    “The truth is ugly” is something weak people say. The truth is beautiful in every possible way, it works, it always works and nothing else does. Lies help nobody. Lying is ugly, there’s nothing pretty about it. If people aren’t strong enough to handle the truth, that’s their problem, not yours…. don’t water a message down to save them from harsh realities. You can be perfectly polite in your tone and expression without weakening the core message. Let that message be of plain truth. When you dilute the truth: you hurt yourself and others. If you aren’t hearing a verbal response like “that’s not nice” from people in your social circle at least once a week, you’re obvously not speaking the pure unadulterated truth. You are protecting people from the truth, that exact kind of truth that could help them. You can choose to say, as delicately as possible, what you really do think. Be kind in your way of being honest. Dishonesty is NOT kind, no matter the subtlety of the approach. Say things softly, as long as you pointing directly to the direction of truth as you see it.

    _________

     

    Stop listening to others and start listening to that feeling inside your heart that keeps alluding to your untapped potential.

    _________

     

    People assume that continuing to display some virtue in their inter-personal relationships will pave a golden path to their own spiritual salvation upon death, or at least some level of spiritual protection before death arrives. Imagine another system for just a moment, in which you don’t ever get awarded spiritual brownie points by helping others. Imagine you only get docked points for hurting people, yet never earning anything when you help them. In order to feed your spiritual bank balance with deposits, you actually need to go to all the trouble of helping yourself, not just by pretending to play out the role but by genuinely engaging in self-improvement with real-world results (that are immediately offered to you in reward during this current lifetime). Just imagine what level of perfection such an autonomous system would represent. To the upside, life is self-serve.

    _________

     

    “Talkers” are never going to change the world.

    They’re bound to just keep on talking.

    “Doers” change the world.

    Shut yourself up for a few years and become a doer.

    You’ll never go back…. to wasting your life by running a verbal commentary on what other people do.

    _________

     

    Let your own demonstration of strength become the seed of strength in others.

    _________

     

    If you elect somebody else to represent you,

    they won’t represent you,

    because they are somebody else.

     

    Technology in the modern age allows individuals to instantly vote directly, even on a weekly basis, at neglible cost. And so the need for ‘representatives’ became redundant around 2 or 3 decades ago. People in positions of political power would have you believe that such technology doesn’t yet exist. How long do you think they can keep hoodwinking the populace?

    _________

     

    Definition of ‘normie’:

    Somebody who blindly accepts the advice of “experts”.

    _________

     

    I don’t trust people who have no regrets.

    They are lying to themselves.

    Lying to self automatically tends to extend into lying to others as well.
