UCWG 094: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 52 – The Spaces You Create

You have the power to project infinite versions of the truth. Wielding this power, you must take great care with every impression you release into the world. In the aftermath of communication, there are always new expectations. You create novel structures in every mind you touch.
There is no way not to shape perceptions.

Monitor the expectations you set by your presence, or you divide into more than one version of yourself. You are united only when expectations match reality. You are then non-contradictory, a house ordered for a cause.

UCWG 093: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 51 – The Ethical Alternative

No one ends at the limits of their body. The good man knows that to function well with others, he must respect the dominion of anyone he allows into his moral system. He likewise must demand their respect in return. When all moral agents embody this level of mutual respect, order is finally attainable. Reputations pressure us to stay within the moral right. Destructive people will be limited in their potential.

When each person can see the benefit in their own life to building harmony through their actions, the world will see sustainable peace.

UCWG 091: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 49 – Communicate Your Mind

Because your ideas will stretch beyond the realm of conventional thinking, your only hope of having others understand you (let alone join you) is to develop exceptional communication skills. Communication is not limited to the words you say. You must learn to present yourself as something people can comprehend. You must, to some degree, fit into a category within their mental hierarchy of order. It is violent and painful for a typical person to have their categories challenged.

UCWG 090: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 48 – Genuine Transparency

You live in a world that encourages you to acknowledge only what it warrants within you, neglecting what it contrasts with. You are trained to deny anything with the power to cause sorrow for the sake of social harmony. However you portray yourself, another world of emotion beneath the surface. Society taught you to appear comfortable at all costs, even when you are deeply troubled. You fear the social repercussions of sharing your insecurities, yet doing so publicly is the surest way to move beyond them.

Transparency changes you because it changes the world’s perceptions of you. You cannot easily return to the old way once expectations have risen. The new story you tell holds you accountable and allows you to finally bond with the people you desire.
