Stupidity is that very poison that can also be a cure. Stupidity is very useful but it takes the ability to use it properly, just like any other weapon it can be dangerous in unpractised hands. Stupidity can defeat fears and neuroses, take away unnecessary desires and addictions or even inspire into actions. Stupidity is wonderful and very useful when it's handled properly.
I do not advise you to abuse memory training, the better a person's memory, the more he is an idiot. Why would he? He remembers everything by heart. However, bad memory is also not a sign of a big mind.
As soon as I see silliness in something, I want to destroy it at once by creating wisdom and crashing the silliness with it. Hence, I like silliness as it's a source for wisdom. Silliness is food for wisdom...
Creating wisdom for no reason is not sensible... but silly things are nice reasons for creating wisdom.
The best way to get rid of passion and silly desires is to fulfil them and soon feel all their hidden dangers.
The best way to get rid of passion is to give in to its temptation.
Beware of your desires... Too much of a good thing is good for nothing.
But in order to realize it, it's necessary to experience it first.
The best helper of a wise man is a fool. The stupidity of fools is endless. As they are ready to endlessly produce a stream of endless stupidity. A wise man only has to follow a fool and turn the carbon of stupidity into diamonds of wisdom...
It's necessary to treat others with indulgence. Mistakes make people stronger and smarter and it's only overcoming mistakes that makes people better. A teacher who blames a pupil who makes mistakes while learning, is a fool. As someone who never makes mistakes is probably the worst pupil who doesn't feel like learning anything.
The best way to know wisdom is to personally do many stupid things.
Gradually you'll get so bored with stupidity that you'll be able to smell it. Or feel it with your whole body when it's a mile away. You'll become an alarm that starts to signal all over the area as soon as stupidity gets close to you. And later you'll be able to create wisdom by denying stupidity.
Foolishness is boundless, but nature has even taken care of it. The self-destruction mechanism is built in foolishness itself. Making a foolish thing is what kills foolishness. The man who has personally made a lot of foolish things acquires a sharp mind and an allergy to foolishness.
Don't be scared of committing an action. As actions mean making thoughts put to reality. And isn't it the main function of thoughts?
If a thought is stupid, a person will be punished to become smarter. If a thought is right, a person will commit a righteous action...
- So what, is it allowed to commit any actions?
- It depends on the original level of stupidity. It is supposed that some basic level of wisdom and fear in a person won't let this person do stupid things. But on the other hand, if a person got no wits or fears, then doing even the most stupid things may be useful for this person. As doing stupid things is very painful and makes one suffer a lot. And the stick that life uses to teach the stupid ones a lesson, is full of thorns.
The desire to do something dumb is typical of human nature. The essence of stupidity is the desire of chaos to be free. Wisdom is the perfection of thoughts typical of order. But every human being craves for both order and freedom at the same time.
Stupidity is useful. I love stupidity. Ivanushka-fool my hero. Stupidity kills fear. Fear is the devil, the source of all evil on earth. But the good must be little by little, if the good becomes much, it will turn into its opposite. Beauty is a metaphor for bread and salt, where salt is stupidity. Moderate stupidity is a symbol of humility and love.
A repentant bad student is better than an excellent student who has nothing to repent of. Having acknowledged his inferiority and repented, an imperfect student will gain the ability to fill and, therefore, grow, and, quickly filled, will grow to 6, and to 7, and above.
People are afraid to talk. They were taught from childhood that chatter is a sign of stupidity. They know about their stupidity too, so they are always tormented by fear that they will have nothing to say.
