This morning I had a few minutes so I picked up the phone and called my old buddy – You might know him (or at least his name: Albert Einstein.
We were chatting about the state of the world and how it only gets WORSE, with everyone going more and more into DETAILS and “Specialties” — In short, drifting FURTHER APART and further away from the CENTER of The Universe.
That CENTER is: SIMPLICITY —- Nothing more!
“I always speak this truism: SIMPLE ALWAYS WORKS. The more complex, the worse everything gets! In the very least, the more complexity, the more that MUST BE “Right” to Work, and if ONE Thing Goes Not So Good, Then It Takes EVERYTHING Down With It.
Albert then reminded me of something he said many years ago: “Any FOOL Can Make Things BIGGER, and More COMPLEX, and More VIOLENT. It Takes A Touch of GENIUS – AND a LOT of COURAGE – To MOVE In The OPPOSITE DIRECTION”
I then reminded him of another one of my many truisms: “Most People Are WRONG About MOST THINGS, MOST of The TIME”.
Albert laughed when I said that. He then said “Isn’t it funny how we think so ALIKE!”
If you want to laugh at how DARING Albert is to COMPARE Himself To Me, I will DEFEND HIM to the death with as HE IS LIKE ME — just another “thinking being”.
I leave you all with a couple other quotes he made or other “famous” philosophers:
Albert said: “It is NOT The I Am Smarter Than Anyone Else. It simply is That I WORK Harder & Longer on Matters Than ANYONE ELSE.
The “other” philosopher’s quote “Talent hits a target that no one else can hit”. GENIUS HITS A TARGET THAT NO ONE ELSE CAN SEE”.
Add these 2 quotes up (or a few of mine) and you get the point: Most People Are WRONG, DO WRONG & Breed MORE WRONG, as They Simply SEE NOTHING Other Than Excuses For Why They Do Things & To PROVE How “Right” They Are WHEN In FACT, They Are SO VERY WRONG!!!
Isn’t it about time for EVERYONE To LET THEIR GENIUS OUT? Isn’t it about time to BEGIN TO SEE/LIVE/DO WHAT YOU otherwise would have thought IMPOSSIBLE.
Yes – It Always Is Good To Talk To My Friend ALBERT, As He ALWAYS REINFORCES WHAT I SAY, WHAT I DO, WHAT I TEACH, and HOW I LIVE! —– We are maybe the only “Living Examples” of People WHO “PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH.
Do You? Do YOUR LEADERS? —— Sadly Everyday Proves OTHERWISE!!!! Man Falls Deeper Everyday BECAUSE “MANKIND LOVES BIGGER & FANCIER, MORE COMPLEX” – and thus MISSES EVERYTHING OF REAL VALUE & WORTH!
