A question I've proposed to myself at least three times this afternoon is, how can one person avoid becoming a victim? Ideally, its avoided by not becoming a victim at all, avoiding situations that involve winners and losers. For me in particular that's impossible because I require challenges. There is an opportunity to pick your battles though For instance if I'm in need of a good challenge I should opt towards exercise instead of putting my self in a situation ill end up regretting. In this climate, I think we, as Americans, have had enough time soul searching. We get bored so we decide to embark on some physical, mental or spiritual journey to find our selves, But We have been the same person since birth. we know right from wrong. we know what's good for us and what we will regret. we know what to blame our selves for and what's out of our control. We know what we would say to a friend that fucks up, and we know exactly what we would say to our selves.
I believe simplicity is the key to ending your suffering. Simplify your self and decisions become a matter of, yes or no. rather than something you toil over because you have nothing else to do. I encourage others to think before you speak, make the decision to reserve your thoughts. embrace change for the better. Be someone who's words are sparse yet impactful. The best way to get someone to listen is to stop talking.
I'm attempting to persuade whoever may be reading to embody the Application mountains rather than the Rockies. The Rockies are beautiful, they display excitingly high peaks and harbor open-minded communities. But they don't have the old-growth, or the wisdom, or the culture that makes the Applications special. If the Rockies are a beautiful woman that wants to talk to you, the Application mountains are the residents of a nursing home. You desperately want to spend your time with this exciting woman, but you know the older generation deserves your time because they have been around long enough to know what's worth saying.
