I dunno... What do you guys think?

Man as a group is chaotic. If you follow the changing whims and wishes of others, you too will be chaotic. If, on the other hand, you hold to the thoughts that you yourself know to be sound, you will become placid, strong, independent, and sure.

The futile pursuit of the approval of others will distort every worthwhile desire in your heart and rob your life of any personal meaning. You can never really be YOU until you achieve mental freedom from the fears, hates, superstitions, prejudices, and opinions of those on the outside.

Lose that mental freedom and you lose everything.

Namaste.

I agree. The degree of concern you have about what others might think about you is directly proportional to the control others have upon you.

i agree, to know and trust yourself above others is the only way to be free.

All of this is true.
You just have to find what you identify with and stick with it.
Peace.

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

Very good post, I couldn't agree more. :cool:


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I agree with you, but
