All this intelligence.

3 years, 2 months ago

And what are we doing with it? I think these are some amazingly intelligent people. But we are wasting it. How are we improving the world we live in? We could be doing so much more, especially united. HE is amazing. Why can’t we focus our efforts and make a difference? I’m not talking on a personal level, on a global level, why can’t we make an impact? I believe we can. If everyone was to apply themselves to a united goal, how could we be stopped? Politics? We can out think those silly politicians. How is what we know, about food, about life, about meditation, not reaching the other 99%? I dont know how anyone else feels, But I want to spread, this.. awareness. This, reality, that you dont need a 9-5 to be successful. What happened to living life while you are still young?

Do you feel better the next day? When you learn something amazing, does it change your life in any way? Do you feel good about learning, or better about yourself for going out of your way to learn? Does intelligence feel good? fuck yeah. I’m using my intelligence, and so are you. You don’t need to go out there and create some crazy invention or start a rally. If you are using what you know to do good for yourself then you are using your intelligence wisely. You don’t need to write a book, you don’t need a fancy job, you don’t need to re-write physics, or disprove/prove god. Where did all the pressure come from? When did society decide to turn its back on its own kind and say, “You aren’t good enough. Do better.”? If you are more happy than not, then you are doing your part. If everyone did this, imagine what the world would be like. Now imagine if everyone was in a good mental state ALL the time.

I’ve been thinking about this thread for the last couple of days, wondering what you’ve all been doing. It’s possible to spend too much time planning, and never actually get started with the doing. so let’s use this thread as a place to post changes we are making in our lives *right now*. while we’re thinking about how to change the whole world with a single clever tweet and saving our pennies to become lobbyists, we can inspire other HEthens with our smaller scale changes, which will have more impact if shared among the 8000 members (and countless lurkers) HEre.

has anyone gone out and made some guerilla art since it was suggested upthread? Share it, and others here will find inspiration.

This morning I adjusted our thermostats downward, after a local contractor installed some EE windows to replace old leaky single-panes. Homeowners: tighten your envelope and drop your thermostat! If you’re still living at home, bring it up to your parents, or at least turn down the one in your bedroom.

What other changes are you all making today, right now? Spread the word here, and the word will spread. and maybe as we talk about the different ways we’re improving our lives individually, we’ll hit upon a larger solution, something we can share with the world-at-large.

James, I’m sure those rich successful CEOs never received words of encouragement or saw things that planted a seed that fueled their inspiration to become “successful”. And of COURSE money equals success, I mean look at Paris Hilton!
