The problem is that the animal within us cannot be tamed if we dont think we have it in us ..one would first have to admit that there is an animal within us in order to change it .....we all think that we dont need to change ...the other guy is the one that needs changing .....as long as we see it this way ...it wont change ..

I always loved the words to The Man in the Mirror .
If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change ....(instead of looking at others to make a change we need to be the ones to make the change in ourselves first ) ....

Another thing is if people actually looked past the way someone dresses ...how clean or dirty they are how they stand walk talk or whatever etc ...and looks at the person themselves ...I bet we would all get along better ................



this was wonderfully said.. hopefully it will happen that people stop mirroring others instead of themselves first. You said it great. Just wanted to let you know

Service to others keeps lousy others alive longer than necessary.
Everything that your post advocates is cheap lame false feel-good socially acceptable trivial fine-fine platitudes that no one (that I have ever observed) actually practices in their real life...(like people who may advocate open immigration tend not to be found with eighty-seven strangers sharing their houses, not so much).
Do people in your milieu actually encourage you when you advocate these sentiments? I can't imagine it, unless you all take turns popping off and then giving each other attaboys. Oh, I guess I can imagine it, but no fun, for sure... like a musical about recycling and dental hygiene narrated by those cartoon Biblical vegetables..."GOOD FOR YOU", uh-huh...


it's only trivial if all you believe is that this reality is only a material existence. however, i know that there's a great deal more to this life than this material world. if you don't know what i'm talking about, then you've yet to come to this realization - don't worry if it hasn't happened yet, it will eventually!


and to be honest, i really don't care what anyone thinks of me at all; as long as i'm one with my conscience/soul and doing what feels right to me (it's embedded within all of us), then i can't worry about about what others think of me. worrying is a product of fear, and fear only holds you back. as long as i focus on what really matters in life, i'll be able to deflect the negativity and avoid the hardships and suffering presented to us in this modern world. if i help others, no matter how negative and material they are, then they'll begin to realize somewhere down the line that life is too short for jealousy, fear, and anger - personal happiness is living without material needs... a spiritual desire will truly make you happy and set you free!


be one with yourself, and be comfortable and confident in everything you do - you'll then begin to see that what others think about you does not matter as long as you know that you're in the right.

good luck on your journey!
