The Truth About Weakness

Seneca, the Roman Stoic philosopher, said that all savageness or cruelty is a sign of weakness. I love this concept and it has inspired me to reflect on its truth. Our weaknesses are not confirmed when we are physically dominated by someone else. True, debilitating weakness reveals itself in those who lack empathy and intelligence.  People who express empathy and intelligence threaten the feeble-minded. Intelligence inspires bullying and acts of cruelty in order for the actual weak to appear stronger than their minds would otherwise have you believe. These people oppress in order to get their way. If they are … Continue reading The Truth About Weakness

THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES

Inversion and selfishness are at the root of all lies. Lies are not just the inversion of truth, but the inversion and destruction of reason. A lying individual may take up the practice not just to get his way, but for reasons he views as being purely practical.  He may not be clever enough to get away with his fabrications for long, but there will always be more lies and excuses to justify them. A good liar not only lies to others, but to himself as well. The imagined practicality of telling lies offers the liar opportunity to proceed up … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES

The Truth About Inclusivity

The truth about inclusivity is that it is not about zeroing in on who we want to have on board. It is about accepting even those we may not like and accepting anyone who wants … Continue reading The Truth About Inclusivity

The Truth About Suffering

Have you noticed how so many people seem to be suffering? I’m talking mostly about people who have not even had the life experiences of war, suffered lack or real anguish-inducing times. People now ‘suffer’ when they are deprived of wi-fi, when their Instagram uploads don’t get enough ‘likes’ or when someone voices a contrary opinion. The threshold of suffering has plummeted and our programming has allowed for us to accept it as normal. I don’t want to sound as if I have all the answers to why we suffer because I don’t, but my sources reveal that those who … Continue reading The Truth About Suffering

The Truth About The Devil

THE DEVIL & HAPPINESS. I went to sleep last night with the intention of finding answers to share with you about the secrets of Happiness and the response I got this morning was a message about…The Devil. Such are the mysteries of understanding and gaining knowledge. There is an ignorance which many of us suffer and that is the blindness to the powers we each have within and a belief that happiness is something you can only be obtained through material gains or power over others. It is the belief that we are bound to worthless garbage as a necessity … Continue reading The Truth About The Devil
