I am not a teacher, not a therapist, not a guru, not somebody who climbs a pedestal and preaches the right thing to be and the right thing to do, as well as the wrong things to be and to do. The reason is not that I don’t have diplomas, status to do that -I never seek to have those, by the way- but because I want for myself something which most often contradicts some traits that teachers have. I want myself and others to be self-driven. I don’t want them to be at odds with themselves. I don’t want them to doubt themselves. I don’t want them to deny themselves. Mind you, I don’t mean all therapists, gurus, nor all teachers. I don’t mean to not take any information, for that would mean no communication. I mean nobody can be authority over another.
All that I write in here, are meant to lead there. And if I advise something, it is independence –essentially, it is no advices. I wouldn’t want anyone to depend on my righteous advices, even if I could. I don’t want to be followed. I as a mere being wish to communicate, from time to time. It’s as simple as that.
I don’t care how many diplomas, badges of honor, money, titles, etc etc etc a person has, when it comes to believing him. I stick with my own point of view. And if my viewpoint doesn’t fit therein, if what I want is no aligned with he wants, I simply don’t join in. If we match, then we match. But then I don’t expect him to tell me what my viewpoint should be, so that we will match.
When it comes to choosing what to be and what to do, you shouldn’t consult anybody. Why? Because you are in your core perfect. And all the imperfections you might notice, are byproducts of self denial. And those cannot be solved with more self denial. You know who you are, what you want, what you agree with, and what you like. Don’t let anyone change that. You know if you like to talk to somebody or not. Don’t talk out charity nor out of obligation, nor out of some other idea(s). Don’t be something, nor engage in activities just so you’ll be ‘socially OK’. In short if you don’t like something, don’t like it. If you don’t agree with something, you don’t have to. If you don’t want to do something, don’t do it. There is no “I have to go out, because if I stay in I wont be cool and I wont be social and blah blah blah”. No. Go out if, when and however you want to go out, and associate with whomever you want to. I don’t care what -isms and -ologies say. You are fortunate to have a trash bin. So, if you want an advice from me, take all advices you have ever taken, and throw them in the trash. And the less you will deny yourself, the easier our life be, and the less you will be denied by others too.
Ethics and self denial go together, but in reverse. It is the opposite than what they preach. You are ethical. Your will is ethical, naturally. Through self denial, you can make it unethical.
Those people that need to be contained so they wont harm others, have already engaged in denying themselves, to a great degree. That’s why they harm others. They do to others what they do to themselves. It isn’t true that they gain anything by harming. They harm themselves.
And I don’t point out any ‘true self’ that you will deny yourself either –no no no. You are that true self. You will never become another self. It’s the self denial, and the consequent maladies that you could discard.
I’m not promoting any separation from others, either. Free beings can co-operate, love, create, understand -or not- at will, and much better than brainwashed slaves.
