Phase III (Self-actualization)

Among the infinite lives surrounding us, only few have ambidextrous mindset of attaining both the negative and the positive excerpts on life.

In many ways, being frivolous is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism. We prefer favoritism to those who are either popular or aggressive. We are drawn towards their radiant pretence. Simultaneously, we become their followers. And before we come to our senses, we’re already impelled into a melancholic state.

In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for sycophants. They are blinded by higher self esteem and prejudice; a superior urge of thrashing their opinions and proving them as better individuals than the ones who are selflessly kind and considerate. This fact still lingers back on my spine because they’re the pillars of this hypocrisy. They don’t want to surpass, they want to suppress.

They term such people as “foolish”. But little did they know, often the foolish turn the tables and miraculously precede the wise.

There’s a subtle calmness in being oblivious to the irrelevant issues.

And the striking truth is that, in the grand spectrum of things, we covertly admire to grasp the virtue of the foolish, not of the flatterer.

      1. It’s iconic, regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with Ayn Rand’s philosophy. She came up with ‘Objectivism’ – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivism

        It holds-

        1) The proper moral purpose of one’s life is the pursuit of one’s own happiness

        2) The only social system consistent with this morality is one that displays full respect for individual rights embodied in laissez-faire capitalism

        But, again, regardless of whether or not you agree with Rand, her works are truly classics, and I enjoyed reading them for the own sakes.

      2. Thanks for giving a synopsis. I’ve checked the link you posted here. I like the way she quoted the concept of man, as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.
        Will surely read it when I’ve time. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. trovo molta veritร  e attualitร  in queste parole. Troppi adulatori cercano di conquistare il mondo, con conseguenze spesso nefaste per l’umanitร . Purtroppo sono in molti a fidarsi di loro, a credere che la loro supremazia li renderร  persone migliori, ma la veritร  รจ che spesso le cose sono completamente diverse da quello che vogliono farci credere…

  3. Absolutely love this. I love your mindset. I believe that the ambidextrous mindset is a gift for me. When people ask me if I am religious, I always tell them that “spiritual” and my “religion” is “REALISM”.
    Life and society are black and white. What you see is what it is. The exception being that much of life is instinctively and somewhat hidden in the gray areas of life. I love how you brought “ambidextrous” into the norm. For we do see and are very capable of dealing with both sides of life in these situations and whatever society thinks it can hide. Blessings

    1. Indeed, we are what we perceive. Society favours their own moral standards that are pleasant to them, but what they neglect is the important aspect of an individual’s character that shapes his/her personality like- preferences, topics that need awareness- depression, stress and anxiety.
      There will always be pessimistic influence that makes one question their abilities.
      You’re doing a superb job. Keep it up.
      Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š
