in fact its actually an enlightened idea, and would definitely not be taught in any public school. it isn't new, he didn't come up with it - but its
its true, there are no heroes. heroes can only come from an external label, from an external point-of-view only and if you think it of yourself then
already you aren't one. in the best case scenario you're doing it for some kind of internal pleasure-feedback. you might be doing it "because it
needs to be done" but you're deriving pleasure from that principle. you're feeling good about yourself.
but is it so bad to feel good about yourself? isn't that better than doing it for karma, or because a god wants you to, or to make up for bad things
you've done in your own past? or to get laid?
a lot of personal problems are caused by people not feeling they deserve things, maybe because of guilt or low self-value. so what if the trade off is
that people are helped in some way and you feel good about yourself, maybe even consider yourself a hero? is that so bad?
