“The Surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
An important trophy to hold in life is that of being an individual. By this, I mean to say that beings should be prideful with the concept of uniqueness. One shan’t strive to be uniformed to society, rather than to be the spark in the complacent world we reside in currently.
It is a rare instance that there are beings who strive to be different… there are even fewer beings that are just that way by birth (naturally). There is a major difference in trying to be an individual, than actually being one. Yes, you can argue the fact that one is an individual by birth, for the obvious reason that you leave your mother’s womb and are then expected to be your “own person” so to speak. This is
not what I mean by individual however; those who think critically, speak up when oppressed, and lead the world to differentiate between uniformity and libertarian… are those that truly are Individuals.
Let us go deeper with this thought; to not be bothered, moved, or have your opinions changed by your surroundings is a
difficult task to achieve in today’s society. Not for me, so I am not speaking from experience, but for several others. I state this for the reason being that too many individuals that I cross paths with, work with, read their pieces, or even over hear their conversations… all seem to correlate to the same tune. It seems too obvious that beings are fearful of liberation, of freedom, of the Truth.
We should all be focused on guiding our youth to embrace their individualities, rather than
bury them deep down. Society needs to adapt and accept “different” better than it ever has before. We must begin to view “different” as intelligent, as a leader, as the Truth; & view Uniformity as bland, scared, and a letdown. Until this deed is done, the world will continue to have the misconception of what true liberty is… we will continue to suffer. We, the Seekers of Truth, need to comprehend the ability we posses to let our intuitionism guide us not only through life, but let it lead as the only way possible to live.
