Practical Enlightenment!


Practical" person...
I see so many people who can write (but feel they are not writers) or strum a few new chords on a guitar and compose a few lyrics (but feel they are not musicians and composers) .. or believe and utter "words of light" (but refuse to accept they are preachers of light)...

Why is this? Does one have to be a Tiger Woods to be a "Golfer"?
Does one have to be Shakespere to be a "Playwright" ...

Should everyone else just stop and watch? ...

Humility and modesty in action (if it is a virture) is to act without the inhibition of comparing oneself (negatively or positively) with great and famous masters..

Why not be a proud an arrogant "simpleton" "also ran" and "novice" at every/anything?

To go and stand on a hill and preach your own realized version of the "sermon on the mount" - as well and as sincerely as you can..

The condemnation of "ego" is surely not for the meek and simple... but for the Arrogance of the self-appointed Wealthy Rich and Powerful Leaders (Popes, Gurus & Homocidal) Presidents of the World..

Any ordinary person who says "war is wrong" "exploitation of the weak and poor is bad" or "love is good" should be encouraged to realize that they are not being badly pretentious, arrogant or heretical in sharing and expressing these age old "Gospels". BUT arriving to such "obvious truths" DOES (at that point) put anyone on the same footing as the great prophets and IN PRACTICAL TERMS really does distance themself from those "so called high and mighty" who are so clearly and painfully ignorant in their word and deeds...
