A Very Smart Stupidity: Wisdom In Work Clothes, Take It Or Leave It! A "Bad" Article

When you live normally and get divorced normally, you live in the ultimate unrealistic fantasy world. One thing that is more unrealistic than genuinely knowing how to cheat and be a genuine criminal who succeeds at the wrong is knowing it all and being perfect all the time always. The ultimate perfection and utopia is cheating yourself, you can learn something only if you are not perfect and perfectly honest about not knowing and wanting to learn.

Recently, I mentioned to my Mom about the fate of the philosopher Socrates and the hemlock sipping execution death that even his wife approved of. In fact, where do you think the saying "good riddance" came from? It probably did come from the mouth of Xanthippe, Socrates wife when she found out that the "thorn in her side that was her husband" was being castigated and executed for being one of the first rebellious non-conformists of history that could really learn something and we could still learn something from as we can tell by his pet sayings: "All that I know is that I know nothing." and "I am always willing to learn".

So, history goes on, with all its "smart stupidities" right down to wars, murders, car accidents, amnesia, elections, politics, false philosophies, negative mysticism, suicides, medicines, tension headaches, craziness, mayhem and all the problems that evolve from us "knowing it all and having all the answers".

The answer to it all is to be willing to learn how to really live. That is it. The only positive mysticism that can benefit us is being willing to learn how to really live in reality, everything else is an attempt to cheat. That is it.

When we get real and honest about it all in a "scary way", that is when the genuine growth begins anyway.

Now, I mention the inspiration for this article: I spoke with my Mom about the death of Socrates and the legendary two little words supposedly given from his wife Xanthippe that sent him off laughing as he died sipping hemlock. She feels the same way when I tell her what is going on in an impartially honest way. Oh, to be honest right down to the basic truth without "chicken filters" or "beating around the bush": All my soul does is laugh with Socrates not at him.

So I say with Bill Withers at the height of his success and having "everything": "I want to spread the news that if it feels this good being used, you just keep on using me until you use me up!"

So, in my personal point of view taking the opposite "tack on reality" to Kanye Omari West, God is quick enough for me anyway and I am a person of patience and faith all the way, however it may go now. I am not a rabbit or hare, I am just a steadfast tortoise or whatever is always ready to finish the full race and really win whatever is needed. That is all.

To finally clarify the kind of "smart stupidity" I mean: I am willing, I am faithful, I am steadfast, I can genuinely race like the tortoise. I will not quit. I will not rest. So I work, I work always and I do the hard work, only I do it for real and do it deep, and for my own genuine benefit. If this is a "bad article", so be it, but I just wanted to get a few unvarnished honest thoughts and realities out there (from my mind to yours) from in here (in my being).
