People show you who they are when you’re in a low place but it isn’t revealed until you’re in a high place.
Some people are nice out of genuine compassion, some are nice because you’re no threat when inferior.
Now I find it a funny world we live in where authoritarianism is so popular and external authority figures get so much appeal. This to the extent that people fight and even kill each other over whose external authority figure is supreme.
Yet so little regard for the inner authority and sovereignty of the individual self.
So much money and resources both internal and external given to the external authority figures.
Yet so little recognition and respect given to the heart and mind of each other. So little care toward helping each other care for the garden of self.
You can’t get something for nothing in this world but you can get nothing for something if you give your energy to those external figures.
You can create great somethings if you use your energy cultivating your garden and helping those around you with theirs.
