Be Foolish

A philosophy westerners can call their own: an attitude for the 21st. Century.
Somewhere in here is The Meaning Of Life. Good luck finding it.

The Foolishness Test.

Have you ever wondered if you are a fool?
Even if you haven't, I am sure that other people have.
Let's try to settle this question, once and for all...

1: Do you try to impress others? 
If yes, don't worry, you are normal. 

2: Do you tell lies, sometimes? 
If yes, don't worry, you are normal. 

3: Are you dissatisfied with the way you look? 
If yes, don't worry, you are normal. 

4: Do you tell others the right way to live their lives? 
If yes, don't worry, you are normal. 

5: Do you go to any lengths to prove that you are right? 
If yes, don't worry, you are normal.  

There. That was easy wasn't it?
But what did you discover?
If you answered even one question with a "no", you might want to start watching your behavior.
Oops, there I go: being a bit normal :(
Even a fool gets it right, sometimes.

But back to you: it is a good idea to watch yourself for any signs of foolishness.
Because, once you start down that road, believe me, it can change your whole life.
Fewer and fewer people will understand, or accept you, and you will find yourself in deep difficulty.
But if demand is high enough, you can return to my blog, where I may start offering counseling for fools.

Or, sadly, you may just resign yourself to being a fool.

However, be encouraged: there are far worse things you could be.
Like: Successful. Respected. Looked up to. Famous, etc.
Thank your lucky stars, eh.

On the other hand: if you answered "yes" to every question, you can heave a huge sigh of relief, in the certain knowledge that you are absolutely Normal.
I am happy for you.
You are something I have never been able to be.
I hope you don't take it for granted.
