“Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.”
– Albert Einstein
Can we agree that character is an extremely important aspect in a person?
Yes we can.
& can we agree that character is in extreme lack, especially within the leaders of this world?
^if you disagree, please comment your response.
They aren’t thinking with their own minds — they are just as blind as the masses. It’s really the blind leading the blind, and it’s just ridiculous…& it’s not like just one person will find the answers — it will be a group of people with real, genuine character – who are able to actually listen to each other without ego – for actually better foundations…it won’t be about people trying to push their own selfish agendas onto everyone else(which is what politics seems to be…) , it will be about actually listening.
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
– John Wooden
Too many people care more about what other people think of them than what they think of themselves. They care more about their reputation than their character, and that’s just more politics. It’s not thinking for yourself. It’s thinking about what other people might think…and the funny thing is, PEOPLE DON’T THINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They just react, almost always blindly. Almost always selfishly. Almost always in fear.
If I cared about my reputation, I wouldn’t be the person I am.
I want people to like me, but if they don’t, I really don’t give a fuck. Some of my family doesn’t even like me…so ya know, it is what it is. I live for something greater than “I”
Greater than ego.
Greater than reputation.
And part of this perception I think comes from my experiences with psilocybin mushrooms.
I’ve always been my own person but psilocybin has shown me & given me the experience of the truth in thinking for myself — which ultimately cultivates an attitude of thinking for everyone, because it carries everyone in mind & wants the best for everyone.
