Watching the RNC… one of the tragedies of humanity is that we usually gain the ability to hurt and destroy life before we gain the conscience to appreciate it.
There’s a lot of people playing with dark emotions these days – hate and anger – without the self discipline or composure to handle them without being consumed by them.
Maybe I’m too Zen Jedi about things to be commenting on politics, but I believe the first order of business is self mastery. Especially the ego and emotions.
The world out there, especially politics, is full of avenues that are making it easy for people to leave their self control and consciences behind.
That is not the message to be buying into.
Men need to start taking pride in their self mastery, not in how loud, forceful, violent they can be toward others.
We don’t live in a society with much strength, that’s why there’s so much chest beating. Insecurity.
We can change that though, by looking within our own selves and at our own mirrors.
It’s the first order of business.
