Help :9

2 years, 5 months ago

I am at a point in my life where i feel so alert to what is going on in the world etc, yet i have no power to make a difference. I am from Australia, I have a School Certificate (year 10), And just left the Army after 5 years. I want to make a difference, but i feel i don’t have the academic backing to do so. I’m also feeling pretty down and depressed about it HEthens :(

If this was you how would you go about improving your mathematics and logic, and yourself as a person, I just don’t know where to start, i feel like i am a lost soul :(

@mwlucky, I am Australian, I have only the year 10 school certificate also. The main thing is social conditioning provides us with a “conceptual identity” which is worthless. The truth is we all have natural values that even make concept possible in the first place. If you put concepts before those natural values, then concept has no support. Concept is the roof of the structure, which needs the walls and foundations to be in place for the roof to have any use.
Natural values are: Empathy, enjoyment, making things easier and imagination (to name some I have identified) and these all work in concert to provide you with balance in all areas of your life, and to interpret concepts accurately and how to apply them for benefit.
Anyone can benefit from that, you do not have to be a genius to understand it, as long as you can understand it. Incredibly smart people may not get it but an ordinary person may, it comes down to ego in the end. It is the social conditioning that takes our worth but the right order of priority and values that gives it back.

@mwlucky, Bet you don’t really know what’s going on in the world(?)

But the solution to all things is to find new knowledge.

The second part is appraising the new knowledge

The third thing is assimilation and consolidation of the knowledge.

The fourth thing is using extrapolation techniques through original thinking to hypothesise about outcomes.

The fifth thing is down to you.

@mwlucky, Maybe Alan Watts has an answer for You my friend! :)

Also, you can make a change by helping out with volunteer work!!
Don’t worry, i’m not talking into the air. Here is a perfect site that is incredibly cool. My new short term life goals are to do travel programs of their site. Truly amazing. And amongst those programs, their are many volunteer work possibilities which are, to say the least, an amazing experience for You and the people you may help.

Take your time and explore the site. If it get’s you half as excited as myself, I will be happy :D
