Although this person wishes to remain anonymous, as he wishes no credit from anything or anyone, he has gladly shared openly and authentically and given generously of his time, as I had to go back many times to fill in the blanks as I began to understand each level of his thinking.
How does one summarize the whole philosophy of another person in a way that really conveys all that is important and essential?
I couldn't do this in 5 easy tips or 10 things to remember or say, so this is my best rendition of his philosophy. I've also tried to link into separate pages that go into a bit more detail, so that I could keep these pages a bit lighter.
So, here goes...
NOTHING UNUSUAL IN HIS BACKGROUND
Well, call him H for short. Pretty much from a decent family background, with the normal neuroses, that is, until he began his inquiry into life, psychology, and what made sense in philosophy. He did not have a good person to model himself after or even fairly decent philosophies to borrow from. An anxious mother, an alcoholic dad, no real male model for behavior or confidence plus his dad wasn't around much, and he picked up his mother's anxiety.
But determined he was.
And this is the result. (Now, there might possibly be someone happier somewhere in the world, but this is the highest level I've ever found.)
If you copy this and jump off of it, you'll be able to be at a very high level very early in life.
I will paraphrase this as if he is saying it himself, as best I can.
RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE
I learned early on that it works best if I take responsibility for everything that occurs in life. The definition I use for responsibility has nothing to do with fault or being bad, for those are erroneous concepts made up by our culture to control others, especially children. (Of course, most of it is not conscious, as it is what seems to most as "part of reality".)
HIS PATH ULTIMATELY
The ultimate path is shown by the articles on this site.
This might be developed into a model of how not to learn life and then how to correct that to learn life much better and much earlier!!!!
