Levity

Dec. 27th, 2013 09:23 pm
I read a fun article about 10 written thingies that have interesting production stories.

Also, I think we should just take things in levity. Worrying about anything is worse than smiling about it, and most things cannot be controlled or even influenced.

One thing that can be controlled, and should be, is your own emotions and even philosophy.

If more people practiced self-control rather than acting as if they control the other world, then we would as individuals be happier, as a society be more productive, and as a family be more loving.

So, rather than just focusing on comedy, I advise that we focus honestly on developing into "lighter" people who really stand above "wrathful wisdom" and other forms of indignation.

It is difficult, I know, to undo hard habits, but it is not impossible. It is worth working towards, and easier than it looks if you do not make an effort, or prematurely resign to "the end". There is no end, only new beginnings, and cycles of sameness, so choose to do one or the other.

...but that is touching on another topic: development, monocycle, stereocycle.
There is a concept of being a "single person", but I don't think that is realistic.

We are all at least four people: the ideal self, the negative false personality, the positive internal personality, and at least one external personality.

Our personality is greatly influenced by environmental concerns, and in particular, if we are "at work" then we have a different personality from if we are "being social", typically.

There could be a myriad of ways to break an individual into pieces, and in fact I have a system that uses more than 50 parts, iirc... but I haven't ever bothered to write it up, because, who has time for that?

Well, I guess I don, no, but, integrity doesn't require us to be the same in every context, only, the same within the same context, e.g. to live up to our contracts as professionals, and I would think also, to respect others in our direct social interactions, but the latter can become very complicated since... sweet dreams are made of this.

Who am I to disagree?
