Valor and True Compassion are Inseparable
It seems, that in this era, man has mastered the art of appearing intelligent. This and also convincing others that they are intelligent. All of this, without earning the internal merit of personal responsibility. That's the hallmark of the truly intelligent. Who would've guessed?
In the days of the Greeks they were called sophists. I'd been afflicted with this dysfunction - and indeed it is a dysfunction. The effect is the "king baby" who can so eloquently malign another person who disagrees with what they believe. Simultaneously, they gain favor from those who are in denial of similar short-comings. Cleverly, the insult may even infer, pointed at the person being scapegoated, as being immature and arrogant. The smug and snickering mob then concedes and basks in the instant gratification of their sedation. This is the socio-political climate of our times. Hate is in vogue, being honest is called arrogant and being humble is called idiocy.
This work, to me, has pointed out the self-serving motives underneath my own positions. The positions themselves have been nothing but hypnotic limitations; a fools' gold. Reflecting on the Truth, delivered as such is not always a walk in the park. And yet I am eternally grateful.
Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man is an invaluable tool for reflection and self-examination for those willing to be radically honest with themselves. It's also an invaluable tool for those who are curious about discerning essence from appearance. Curious, yes! Have the Truth revealed and see if you're really interested! Many will scurry from the work because...
"A good horse runs even from the shadow of the whip!"
A former slave to popular delusions with an opinionated defense-mechanism. Now, an ordinary man who knows that he does not know anything.
