“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
– Jiddu Krishnamurti
The greatest minds of the world went against the grain. No major breakthroughs have happened by people who follow the herd. When it comes to following orders, the world is a jungle and no matter how many rules exist to tame its creatures, many are still captives of nature. The only real difference between people are the varying degrees of emancipation from their lower nature. Life is a constant struggle between survival and virtue. There’s a million ways to get ahead, but not everyone is equipped with the tools to do so in a kosher way. Remembering this helps me have compassion for even the most ruthless or abased of us. I have faith in humanity. Whether we’re the walking-dead, the walking-sleeping, or the walking-woke, we’re all walking in the same direction. Our pace is just different levels of consciousness.
