You are the CREATORS of tomorrow’s ideas. Never let the temptation of marketable mediocrity and easy CYNICISM rob you of the chance to dignify your HUMAN SPIRIT, YOUR SOUL. Assist others, be open to other perspectives, smile when you pass by another. There is nothing more UNCYNICAL than being considerate to one another. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.
When you self-compare your character to another you VACATE YOUR OWN SOUL. You then tend to resign yourself to the toxic product of CYNICISM. You can grow embittered to the way things are. CYNICISM HAS A DEFICIENCY OF; CURIOSITY, IMAGINATION AND AMBITION. THE SOUL IS IN URGENT NEED OF PROTECTION FROM CYNICISM. CYNICISM is a hardening and calcification of the SOUL.
So NOT TO VACATE YOUR SOUL, the best defense against it, is sincere HOPE not blind optimism. The HOPE should be sustained by CRITICAL THINKING. Such that we are able to identify what is lacking in ourselves, in others and in the world.
To follow our SOUL, we should be a HOPE-GIVING FORCE that will ASSIST others into a MEANINGFUL AND FULFILLING LIFE. We must choose to lift people up, not to lower them down. In so doing we lift ourselves up and leave a “FOOTPRINT” in the HEARTS AND SOULS of others with our existence.
Our culture has CREATED a reward system in which you get points for tearing down rather than building up. We must not just resist CYNICISM we must ALWAYS FIGHT it actively. In ourselves, in those we care for and in the communication with which we wish to shape society.
NOT ALLOWING CYNICISM IS A VERY ENERGIZING NOURISHMENT FOR YOUR SOUL. LEAVE A “FOOTPRINT.”
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. WORK LIKE YOU DON’T NEED THE MONEY. LOVE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN HURT. DANCE LIKE NOBODY’S WATCHING. SING LIKE NOBODY’S LISTENING. LIVE LIKE IT’S HEAVEN ON EARTH. DON’T VACATE YOUR SOUL.
