Hypocrites – Blog No. 6

hypocrisy

That does not say Hippocrates.  His oath was something different entirely.  Hypocrites are interesting, but less interesting than say, liars.  A hypocrite is like a liar, but different in the worst possible way.  Hypocrites are easier to spot than liars because their hypocrisy is visible in their actions, not in the words they use.  So:  you can see a hypocrite from across the room, you do not even need to get close enough to hear them speak.

Hypocrites tend towards self-righteousness.  The problem is, with them, that they say one thing and do another while they imagine no-one is looking.  That in itself is perhaps excusable, but the fact that they subsequently try to hide the reality of their actions from themselves when confronted by their shadows demonstrates an inherent weakness of character in every single hypocrite.  That is not a character-assassination of a type of person, that is a fact.

I am fairly certain that when the bullshit castles fall from the sky there will be some tension in The Houses of Hypocrites.  The unfortunate thing for those living in bullshit castles is that their foundations are weak.  Not the castles’ foundations, their foundations.  When faced with the reality of this tragedy you will notice the hypocrites start squeaking.  That is when to smile, for that is when they realise that their destructive criticism is what has pulled their sky-castles down.  That is also when to deflect their energies, and reform their deformed idea of a social ideal.

Depth – Blog No. 84

Escher_DepthThe depth of your perception dictates your life experience.  If you exercise your perception – shift your focus – from time to time, it does your opinions good.  Perspective and perception are not the same.  Perspective affects perception.  Changing your perspective – your standpoint – is an effective way of exercising your perception.  Do it often.  The depth of your perception is directly proportional to the depth of your understanding of life.  Spend time understanding life.  It welcomes your curiosity.

You have a depth to your character.  You have a depth to your feelings.  You have depths of despair.  All this is familiar news to anyone with the ability to focus inwards.  Focussing inwards allows you to see deep into your meaning.  It is important to know what you mean in this life.  Your life is not some random event.  Do not forget this.

Think of living as being the ocean.  There are swells, waves, Bermuda Triangles.  Creatures.  The deep.  You can choose to go in, or not.  Should you be standing at the edge, about to take the plunge into turbulent waters, know that there could be death lurking.  There could be.  A lot depends on how well you swim.  If you cannot swim, you should learn.
