Array ( [sid] => 109981 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => this is me being honest to myself [time] => 2005-11-18 16:34:07 [hometext] => a theory on mastering oneself and be trully happy, it is dedicated and written to all those people out there who are not happy, who have taken alot of what they shouldn't take, and is tired of searching [bodytext] => i wish i could go back to that painful day when i had every right to stand up and defend myself
but chose to sit and take the undeserved suffering and punishment
i sometimes wonder why i treat myself that way, it must be unconscious feelings of guilt
but how could i feel guilty if im an honest and good guy?

no, im being dishonest again, because deep down inside, i know im not an honest and good guy
deep down inside i want to be filthy rich, sleep with all the pretty women, and rule my own kingdom
yet, isn't that what alot of people want? why does that cause me to feel guilty?
it must then be the society we live in, the world we live in, where laws, order, and democracy prevail

do i not have some of the cravings of hitler? yes i do
do i not have the same ambition as napoleon? yes i do
am i a facist? no im not
am i a dictator, yes in every sense of the world

yet this society and world has made me feel guilty of having these thoughts
i only now know that hitler was one of the worst human being of our time due to the fact that he was so honest with himself
i only now know that napoleon wanted to conquer the world because he sincerely did want to conquer the world with all his heart
and i know that i sincerely want to be rich, have all the women i want, and all the power i want
am i not just being honest to myself?

then what happens when one's honesty leads to conflict with society?
naturally, either one conforms to society or society is conformed by the one
it is thus logical to say that being trully honest to oneself is the best thing one can do for himself and society
because it keeps both the people and society honest.

what if one perish during his struggle to be honest with himself?
it is my belief that the courage exerted during this struggle for the highest possible goal of a human being is divine
it is my belief that if the person perishes during this struggle, then he was not 100% honest with himself
it is one thing to be 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999% honest with yourself, but it is another matter to be 100% honest with oneself. im talking about the courage to be 100% honest.
it is that one thing that's missing that will lead to death, it must not be missing

what if one succeeds during his struggle to be honest with himself?
it is my belief then that society will conform to him and he will then become the supreme ruler if he chooses
it is my belief that he and his peple will be forever happy and joyous as long as they are 100% honest with themselves

i believe everyone is capable of this achievement in their lifetimes, in fact they can do it at this instant
i myself have not reached the 100% mark, but i am still climbing up there

this journey will be tough, this journey will be scary, this journey might very well kill you, this journey might very well be infinite and unreachable, but remember, JUST BE HONEST TO YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT!
