    _________

     

    Joy of a lasting kind: comes from any progress toward your true purpose.

    Joy is not the outcome of leisure... because leisure can only offer momentary pleasures.

    _________

     

    In which activity, when engaged deeply in its process do you have a feeling that suggests “there’s nothing else I should be doing”. That may well be your life purpose.

    _________

     

    In which specific area are your STANDARDS seemingly higher than virtually anybody else that you know of? Therein resides your purpose.

    Not quite that advanced yet?

    In which specific area is your ENTHUSIASM seemingly higher than virtually anybody else that you know of? Therein resides your purpose.

    _________

     

    What is your purpose? You've found your purpose when you genuinely start to think that the deeper joy is in the work, not the result of it.

    _________

     

    What could stop us in life if we just muted that little voice in our heads which speaks of nothing but excuses?

    _________

     

    The unwritten rule drilled into you by parents and teachers: “don’t think you’re better”

    The universal rule of achieving great success: “think you’re better”

    When a student becomes an adult, they just can't flick a switch to rectify 20 years of subconscious programming.

    _________

     

    In those years before you attend school, your parents tell you to “pipe down”

    Each year of schooling, the teachers tell you to “pipe down”.

     

    After you’ve been repeatedly told to “pipe down” for almost 20 years during those chapters of life that are your most psychologically vulnerable, you enter the “real world” of adult life. Once you enter the adult world, a environment of extreme competition, it will become clear to you that all of the large rewards are won by those who have the ability to “pipe up”. You've be pre-programmed to fail.

    _________

     

    The only redeeming product of traditional schooling systems is the social realization that wanting others to like and respect you for who you are on the inside, is a futile endeavor. That lesson alone serves you well for life. You can get on with your purpose without another thought wasted on acquiring the good opinion of others.

    _________

     

    Effortlessness is the only way to be consistently accurate. Effortlessness can only arise out of a mastery of the process.

    _________

     

    You need so much self-belief that you'll actually start to worry that other people will perceive you as arrogant. No less than this lofty altitude of self-belief will work to fly you to greatness. Don't be scared to be labelled as arrogant. You'll also need to "go too far". Let them tell you that you are being ridiculous. Hold to your highest standards and hold to that belief in yourself. You need an abundance of inner self-belief more than you need an abundance of any worldly resource such as money. If you're truly obsessed, you'll have checks on yourself to ensure you are worthy of the merit that you afford yourself. Become more obsessed than anyone alive in your art or subject, dive deeper and deeper and refuse to back off. The world will thank you later, much later.

    _________

     

    Real strength is not physical, it’s the spiritual willingness to undertake what others suppose as IMPOSSIBLE, regardless of how daunting it would appear to be. The strong are the spiritually dauntless.

    _________

     

    The hard part is figuring out what is truly meaningful to you.

    The next hardest, the belief in yourself to be better than others.

    Once you’ve done that, rule out everything else except your chosen goal.

    Don’t listen to others when they call you “obsessed”.

    Finally, realize that the easiest way to persist is to make the process fun.

    _________

     

    How to shackle yourself into an ongoing state of mediocrity:

    wake up each day and believe that you are no better than anyone, at anything.

    _________

     

    The most grandiose dreams are the way to reward yourself.

    Small “realistic” dreams are the way you are choosing to punish yourself.

    _________

     

    Shine like a star and then all you have to do is stay away from people who are like the black holes sucking you into their own miserable oblivion.

    _________

     

    Those who don’t find imense joy in Work,

    usually find a trifle of joy in food.

    Health is seeing food as sustenance,

    rather than a source of pleasure.

    Work is the “well” in well-being.

    Food is just the “being”.

    Work in the garden is better...

    than stuffing that garden into the belly.

     

    Eat only enough to keep working.

    Don't work to eat, eat to work.

    _________

     

    Major intellectual discoveries are made only by people with mental toughness, there’s no club in the world that is more elite. The level of persistence required to join this exclusive club is completely off the chart. You become an aberration in a world of human parasites. This species of parasite are called “talkers”. Those who love to “do” prefer not to spend their time “talking about doing”.

    _________

     

    People who admire others with great social skills are essentially creating a group of ‘talkers’ like a big circle jerk. Your chit chat is not getting anything done, you are all just sitting around talking to each other about getting things done, or your standing around talking to each other about gettings done. Nobody is getting anything done. It’s sitting, standing, talking.

     

    Then there’s the autist alienated in the corner, who only knows how to ignore everybody and is getting a lot done. Progress is made by loners. The supposed ‘cool’ cats are off giving each other trophies, of both the literal and metaphorical kind, just so that they can all feel good about themselves without enduring the burden of toil that Merit demands.

     

    Their lips keep moving while their hands make nothing.

    The smile is wide yet their achievement list is null.

    They’ve pleased everybody but genuinely helped no-one at all.

    Their mind is ever so swift to chase simple glee, whilst their heart remains bare of anything other than scorn for itself.

    _________

     

    When people retire and finally have time to do anything they want, they normally choose some activity of the creative kind. This innate tendency points to the meaning of life.

    _________

     

    There’s definitely something worse than being dumb, it’s living in fear. Fear makes you dumber than dumb…. it spiritually paralyzes you.

    A dumb person can be of good spirit.

    Now consider the future of a world in which 90% of folks currently live their entire lives besmirched by fear.

    Cast off your cloak of fear, live your hours in the purest light of truth.

    _________

     


    Spiritually you don’t owe anything to anyone.

    • you owe everything to yourself
    • you owe it to yourself to abide by your highest conception of self regardless of the moral postulations of the culture you’re immersed in.

    _________

     

    To flourish in life you don’t really need any respect from others but you will need the respect that you grant yourself.

    Problem is, you can’t lie to yourself for long, so it’s going to need to be genuine.

    _________

     

    Great souls like Newton or Tesla or Nietzsche don’t have a great love affair with other souls, their love is dedicated to fulfilling their own soul’s deepest potential. There’s nothing wrong with shunning the idiocy of the common man. Did a great human mind ever present a great gift to humanity without such shunning, at least in part yet usually in whole?

    _________

     

    What makes somebody great?

    It’s all the hardship they were able to bear without any loss in faith.

    _________

     

    Leaders are soon forgotten. Power claimed for the sake of power alone casts no influence on all the generations that come after. Political and business leaders establish no legacy. Legacy is an achievement of the spirit, it’s derived from the work of an individual who toils alone through hours and hours of frustration as they grapple for the attainment of their dream. Centuries will pass and the people will still honour the artists, scientists and philosophers. Here’s what lives on:

    • the great beauty of an artist
    • the great discovery of a scientist
    • the great insight of a philosopher

    _________

     

    Greatness begins when you start believing in your greatness.

    _________

     

    You won’t allow yourself to be a “bigshot” because of what others might think. If this too often aptly describes yourself, then don’t go complaining to God about your lowly life of dreariness that’s almost completely devoid of all success and meaning. Greatness demands that you rise above the need for the good opinion of others. You must find your own feet and walk your own path.

    _________

     

    God wants for you…

    What you want for yourself

    But you must be able to give it to yourself

    God created you to create

    You were gifted the power to make yourself as you wish

    Deny the gift and you flounder

    Employ the gift and you flourish

    Realize that power that you hold

    Wield it without apology

    Become exactly who you want to be

    _________

     

    Scientific breakthroughs always start with the irreverent ramblings of a madman. There’s can be no genius without a touch of madness. Normies are not going to contribute much at all, normies are parasitic by nature: too fearful to be mocked, they wait on others to carry out the labour of innovation.

    _________

     

    The pull to moderation is how you end up as a ‘sell-out’. Be obsessed or be pathetic. Obsession is the embodiment of greatness. It’s not about “curiosity” which is a lame ideal that reeks of mildness, it’s about an utter abandon into an ever-rising cloud of intemperance. Get lost into a higher and higher level of standards that are WELL beyond normal, that’s how you escape ta destiny of dullness.

    _________

     

    It’s all meaningless, ever so perfectly meaningless…

    until you make some meaning.

    Your role is not to find some meaning but to create it.

    The search finally stops once you start building the answer you really wanted.

    _________

     

    Listen to yourself.

    Be honest with yourself.

    Above all, believe in what you feel that you’re really capable of.

    _________

     

    GOD-LIKE

    A man is becoming god-like when he prefers to have more enemies than less.

    When he transcends the pitiful pull toward self-preservation.

    When he is just as happy to die as to live.

    When the palpable sense of risk is no longer kept at some distance away, but is now as close as the sweat on his skin.

     

    Such a man than is more than an ordinary man and thus should not be reckoned with by souls with an ordinary degree of Will. He takes no backward step yet remains both measured and sure in his approach toward what he wants. Power is great when unafraid of itself. He claims what is rightfully his, without asking permission. He doesn't breathe just to please, he breathes to make claim. Greatness cannot be beckoned by caprice or slowly cajoled by a yearning mind, it must be seized by a self that believes in itself. If deep and heartfelt, this belief becomes God-like.... and nature makes way.

     

    No weapon is mighty as the heart perfected in its faith. An emotion of 'conviction' may waver then fall, whilst the true faith of your spirit only grows stronger as it meets with resistance.
