I have failed on both accounts.
My mission has been unclear and my entries rather long.
So consider this post a re-set and an attempt to gain interest from you in my writing with a clear perspective within a short post.
Why am I writing this blog? I was a distracted and bad student in high school which has led me in adulthood to feel confused while believing I am stupid. I've often accepted bad advice as truth because it was dressed up within powerful rhetoric. I thought, What the hell, if someone said something loud enough it was probably true because who am I to question that. I found my unexamined life has allowed me to live within the safety of a mediocre mind. But in the context of our current crazy times I've come to realize that being a perpetual C student may not ask much but it can cost a whole hell of a lot.
I have come to realize that I don't really believe what I think I know so I've felt a need to examine and re-examine many different ideas now because my confusion can't be calmed with a retreat to stupidity.
This blog is an attempt for me to get to know my own mind so I can resolve confusion.
There is a Buddhist saying, "If you want enlightenment, don't seek the truth, just drop all of your opinions."
This therefore is a blog that will describe the new possibilities one can find by honestly admitting confusion and dropping ideas that empower mediocre thinking.
It will not be comfortable for me and I hope it will be less so for you. If I do this well then I expect many of you to be pissed off.
