People here still look to the government to deliver their prosperity and success. That’s a big mistake, and one you also see in the U.K., U.S. and many other places.
America is not perfect. No country is. What makes America great is our right to free speech, peaceful protest and the opportunity to create progress. If you really believe that America stands for liberty and justice for all, you have to recognize and respect everyone’s right for peaceful protest.
Odds are, the person you mistreated will cross your path again, and you will have a chance to make things right. Or if not, you will find another way, to pay it forward with someone else.
That’s all you can do. Take the course and learn the lessons along the way. And that is enough. You, working on you and your craft, just as Bruce did. Without concern for those who don’t have your highest good in mind. Many will be projecting their own insecurities, negative mind viruses, and petty jealousies upon you.

Whether you’re in business, raising your kids, or working at a minimum wage job, there are no “hacks” for doing the right thing.
There are so many seekers in the world today. They’re desperately looking for meaning in their lives. They join gangs and cults, religions and causes, desperate to find something that makes them feel good about themselves. But here’s the vital truth about meaning…

This process of critical thinking, by its very nature becomes an ongoing one. A process that provides you with continually increasing benefits. Even exponential benefits, because as your knowledge base builds, you are able to realize higher levels of deduction, insight, and enlightenment.
You’ve allowed other people and outside factors to create the self-view you have of yourself. And many of those people and factors aren’t qualified to offer you feedback or have motives to distort it.
