Adam Thoughts #272.

All thoughts are original unless quoted. I put a lot of ideas on Twitter now.

Those who show themselves incapable of listening, shown themselves incapable of leading.

Who do you judge: those who separate children from their parents? Or the parents who put their children in harms way by illegally crossing a border knowing the consequences? This doesn’t have an easy answer. Belligerent minds like to be dogmatic, but listening is necessary.

You bring out a me I haven’t seen. A me that doens’t care how he acts. He just is.

The arrogant comment really shook me.

Whether you like Donald Trump or not, the simple truth is – if you want him to fail, you are crazy. We all should be cheering for Trump. Jeoe Rogan hopes he takes mushrooms. L. O. L. Great video clip for so many reasons.

Give the people what they want.

They want a hero.

Dying is the easiest thing you’ll ever do. It’s just like falling asleep.

_____________________

It was a good run. 10 years, 3 months.

_____________________

I remember.

It took 3 sleeps, so that makes that other thing 485x worse.

_____________________

Most people haven’t evolved enough consciously to understand that big issues are always complex. We need holistic understandings of situations before we can identify problems and work for solutions, and this requires listening. Selective empathy isn’t empathy.

_____________________

“Tough on crime”? What does that even mean? Saying it is a reflection of low consciousness. It frames crime as the problem and punishment as the deterrent. This thinking forgets people, ignores causes, and rejects the societal benefit of rehabilitation over incarceration.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” -Philippians 4:4

“Circumstances don’t matter. Only state of being matters.” -Bashar

It’s the same idea at its root.

_____________________

Think of the political spectrum as having a vertical component, and think of consciousness as awareness. This quickly shows why so much division is happening today, and why people are miscommunicating, misinterpreting, and disagreeing the way they are.

People need to stop siting interplanetary distances as an argument for why we haven’t yet found intelligent alien life. The age of the earth and galaxy make that component irrelevant. There are other arguments that are plausible, but distance is not one of them.

If you beat hate and intolerance through hate and intolerance, what have you proven? You’ve won, but what have you proven?

Maybe I’m afraid to be great.

I never wanted to hurt anyone.

Ooooor were you just protecting yourself? Did you just not want to get hurt yourself?

I would say, no. The guiding principle was always about other people. I am a good actor, and I don’t know how to judge people, so I can easily hurt others.

_____________________

Ideas are universal. So then, every state of consciousness has its perspective on every idea – like a different matrix.

This is a starter idea referring to the nature of concept. I need to work on the idea a bit more.

Move to the next stage. Don’t dwell on the past stage. Does an NBA All-Star regret a shot he missed in high school?

If I believe I am great, perhaps it is my obligation to promote myself.

I like this one.
