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.

Confidence, and No Confidence – Blog No. 8

confidence-vs-arrogance-entrepreneur-chart

An important initial distinction to make is the difference between confidence and esteem. They are not the same thing. ‘No confidence’ suggests that there is a courage lacking in a person’s actions, a lack of belief in what a person is capable of doing – and by rights – should do, but doesn’t. Confidence – understandably – is the currency of politics, of scam-artists and esteemed liars. Also, it is the medium used by those who are certain about what what they want, and know that they can achieve it. Confidence is not arrogance, that is another story in itself.

Esteem is more personal, perhaps more fragile than confidence itself, is. Esteem is what affords an individual success, real success. This is because it is authentic – it cannot be manufactured or conjured up at will. In other words, it is a purely natural state of being. Esteem exists where a person is familiar with themselves and their purpose, and both the knowledge thereof – and the understanding – fills them with peace. That peace cannot be bought at any cost. Confidence is at times no more than a means to an end. Esteem has more integrity.

No confidence usually stems from a dented ego. Or damaged pride. This can be repaired in due course with the correct ministrations. Low self-esteem happens to persons who are failing in their focus, their purpose. It is not possible to have high self-esteem when you are not in a position to fulfil your reason(s) for being. If you consider that three quarters of this planet’s populace cannot currently fulfil their true reason(s) for being, you will understand why this earth is in the dire straights that it is.
