Self-Gratification vs Altruism

in regards to the truth

Gratify – to satisfy or please, to yield or indulge (a desire, whim, etc)

 

Self-Gratification 

* viewing endless hours of youtube videos

* reading book after book of every aspect of this conspiracy

* listening to all the various audios and relentless browsing

* attending truth meet ups and conferences

* meditating – purely for self-serving needs, just to be happy

* hanging around forums and infighting in chat rooms

* sending the odd link here n there to fellow truthers

* passive/neutral truther-SEEKER

* an easy life, hassle-free existence, see how things pan out

* conspiracy hobbyist

* observer of the drama, non-participant

* not standing up to be counted at any level

* inward: taking, receiving, to get, absorb, have. Me me me

* laziness, cowardliness

* what can I gain?

* pleasure-seeking, enjoyment, entertainment

There of course is nothing necessarily wrong with many of these activities, especially to newcomers to the truth. Providing one is also being proactive with the truth.

 

 

Altruism – 1. the principle or practice of unselfish concern for the welfare of others. 2. the philosophical doctrine that right action is that which produces the greatest benefit to others.

 

* outward – selflessness, giving, sharing. Consideration to others.

* beyond spectators

* making the effort to be proactive, pulling one’s weigh, having a go despite making mistakes

* proactive truth-TELLER

* willing to put up with some levels of inconvenience, hardship, hassle and personal loss through resistance and non-compliance.

* What can I give?

* getting out there on the streets distributing leaflets, stickers, burnt CDs/DVDs and talking to many people on a regular basis

* participating/contributing

* trying to access as many new people on line through NON truth sites and forums

* motivating others to become proactive, showing example

* writing a book, setting up a truth stall, giving a talk, making videos, creating a blog/website, carrying out interviews, engaging in risky research (not browsing), organising events, setting up a truth group, etc

* some levels of momentum/effort and courage

* presenting the truth to those outside the choir, to new blood

* the bigger picture in terms of all of us in this together and the spiritual quest of spreading the light

* moral, ethical and spiritual duty to share this unvarnished truth

* putting one’s head above the parapet at any level
