Have a Merry Selfish Christmas
by Randy Gage
One of the most controversial chapters in Risky Is the New Safe is the one titled, “Selfishness is the New Altruism.” Once people read it, they understand that it is really about enlightened self-interest, and moving through a process from self-consciousness to what I call cosmic consciousness.
Your life becomes more about significance than success. You find ways to contribute, but do it for purely selfish reasons: For the joy it brings you.
Which leads me to what I want to share with you today…
It’s your chance to be totally and completely selfish this holiday season. To do something for yourself, just for all the joy and pleasure it brings you. If that sounds good to you, please go here and read this:
I do hope you’ll get involved. And have a merry selfish Christmas! (Or Chanukah, Kwanza, or anything else you’ll be celebrating this time of year.)
I've just seen It's a wonderful life a couple of times already. That movie is so chock full of lack memes it isn't even funny. Holy Mackeral. What does it teach? That self sacrifice is a virtue. To give up on your dreams so you can go and serve the herd. That rich people are like Mr. Potter. Geez.
@Vaclav Cermak They have all been shipped weeks ago. Some countries they get held up quite a while in customs. -RG
@pjsorgi Me too...
@BerniceTempleman1 I think Christianity is sort missing a point here. Jesus said "Love your neighbor as thyself" but they forgot about the as thyself part.
@BerniceTempleman1 I agree!!! :)
@BerniceTempleman1 Sounds like a pretty stupid message to put out.... one only has to look around in most countries to see that about 95% of people don't care about themselves at all.....over weight, broke, scruffy, unread etc etc - so maybe the radio station has been achieving it's objectives after all :)
@Randy_Gage The book arrived before the Xmas. Its indeed amazing. Randy, you are truly a big thinker! There is lot of things to pionder and diggest. many other authors simply copy each other but what you bring on the table is absolutely original. Its sometimes scary, yet exciting!
