"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect"
I went to the Wharton School of Business, the so-called #1 undergraduate business school on the planet, spent three years there and then left without graduating. And let me tell you, it was, in my very personal, honest and radical opinion, the biggest waste of time in my life. So goes for universities in general. I attended two other universities, one in the UK and one elsewhere, and they were equally bad. The education I got from watching a few DVDs by Eben Pagan and Frank Kern was infinitely superior and relevant. You don't believe me, look at a 2011 version of a marketing textbook.
University education is not for the creative. It's for the majority. For those that wanna walk through life in a walking daze. For those that want to be told what to do by people who, in most cases, have no passion for what they're doing. For those who want to follow deadlines and have limited freedom. For those that want to have their imaginations stagnated and their creativity killed. It's something that's been put out there to keep society the way it is. People go to school when they're children, get their brains washed and learn about good and bad and morals and what's "right" and "wrong", indirectly get encouraged to abandon their innate talents by being encouraged to follow an empty structure that school has put, and grow up having a damaged perception of what reality is. And then living unhappily ever after. (not if they stumbled upon the warriorforum
You don't need school to be fulfilled, successful, or healthy. In fact, you shouldn't "need" anything if you want to be truly peaceful and powerful. But you want to get some education. Know that your most precious aspect is what's between your ears. Feed it with: 1) knowledge. 2)the right food. Know about everything. Become a self-improvement literature addict. Find your passion and bombard your brain with material on that subject. WRITE every thought you get because that's a seed waiting to grow and turn into a fruitful plant. Drag yourself into new experiences constantly and learn from them. Embrace the hardships along the way and know that character is like steel, forged in fire, and not made out of sunshine and flowers. The more you keep reflecting on what you want and digging and immersing yourself in the wisdom of the ages and in subjects you're passionate about, the closer you'll get to your deepest purpose. And you going to school has nothing to do with that. BUT, if you think it does, then it will.
And make sure the source of that knowledge is a good source. In most cases, for reasons that I don't feel like getting into now, universities and schools are bad sources. Actually most sources out there are bad sources, so you have to choose your sources carefully. The good sources are available. And they're waiting for you to find them and get that information out there and give.
And of course, in some cases school may actually be the best thing for you. But having the toxic belief that "if I don't go to school I will die of hunger and fail miserably and be an example to those children that don't want to study hard and go to school" is not something I would recommend. If you want to go to, or stay in, school, do it for the reasons that seem right to you.
As for #2, food, I'll write a post sometime on why we "have fallen from grace" and lost touch with who we truly are deep inside partly due to our diets. But for now, know that "you are what you eat" "precedes "you are what you think"
Hope this was inspiring to someone. Gotta get back to writing that ezine article...
