Confusion, And Then Doubt, And Then Anger
It’s not all our fault. 😀
We live in a culture of compromise, within an organisation. Organisations become institutions, and participants become institutionalised and dependent. Most are the silent majority who fit into this way of thinking. This how the minority rules the majority, instigated by the exclusive inner circle.
Each of us has a natural flow which has to be curtailed to fit into a culture, but that isn’t our natural way. We have to accept this, but they do not have to accept us, and so, we can become confused, doubtful and perhaps angry.
The strange thing is that, nowadays, we are having more and more differences thrown at us, and so we have to fit in with minorities.
There comes a time when we outgrow organised factions and wonder what to do then. We all become confused at others’ antics, and doubt ourselves at some time; this is normal.
What do we do when we become angry?
Hint: consider being an organisation of one.
When we are true to our reality, we cannot be false to anyone.
“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Polonius is telling Laertes that being honest with oneself is more important than anything else and, if we’re honest with ourself, we will necessarily be honest to others.
We don’t worry about living by someone else’s standards or rules.
We do not doubt our conclusion or what others think of us.
We live as a natural being, without compromise.
No one can tell us how to be true to ourself except us.
What is ‘ourself?’
