I'm never wrong.
I know there are people who think this way and it get's rather silly rather quickly.
Here's a great mental exercise to see how "in check" your ego is.....or isn't.
I don't like the word "enlightened" or "enlightenment" as it has no clear boundries, description, or definition.
It is a pretty subjective word as are most words when you really stop and think about it.
1. Do you think that there is anyone alive who is more enlightened than yourself?
2. Do you think there is anyone here on ATS who is more enlightened than yourself?
3. Point that person out. Tell us who he or she is.
See, the point is, unless your ego is just so far out of check that there is no saving your soul, you would necessarily have to admit that you are not
the most enlightened person on Earth. Although, from what I have seen thus far, there are a few of them in this thread.
Now then, out of the hundred thousand members or so on ATS, if you think you are the most enlightened person on this website then congratulations, you
have outed yourself once again for being an ego maniac.
If you are unable to swallow your pride and without the use of sarcasm,jokes, etc put it out there for all of us to see, who YOU consider to be more
enlightened than yourself then congratulations, you have spoken more by not answering than by actually saying anything at all.
What is bound to happen is a barrage of thinly veiled insults and derailments,distractions,and diversions, but there are a few members here who I
would be shocked to hear an answer from.
