The above image is a picture of you, me, and everyone else on the planet. The human body is just an attachment we use to take our minds from one experience to the next. You are not black or white, male or female, tall or short, or even fat or skinny. That gray matter is all that we are. It’s where all of our hopes and dreams and thoughts (be they wise or ignorant) are stored. It’s where (as Martin Luther King, Jr. suggested) the content of our character resides.
Here in the 21st century too many people focus on the body, with an utter disregard for the mind. It is the last place they look to for self improvement. They attempt to make themselves more interesting by getting tattoos, body piercings, dye their hair, pump up their muscles or get breast implants and Botox injections. And yet, when all of the physical alterations are done they are still the same person. When they open their mouths to speak they reveal that they haven’t changed at all.
No matter how trivial or complicated, if you want to impress people then you really really need to learn something new every day. It would be like tattooing information on your brain, and THAT’S COOL!
