What Is Excellence?


By no stretch of the imagination you should glean from the following that I have this thing figure out. Having said that, I believe that one year lived in excellence is better than seventy suffered in mediocrity. Excellence not as a scale of professional or other achievement and surely not in the sense « I want to be much better than others », because you would just be playing the game of duality, mere juggling with polarities, an amusing ludic endeavor, but one that keeps you stuck in a loop of eternal contradictions. I mean it more in the sense of fulfilling that so much elusive human potential, the legendary entelechy. And for me fulfilling potential means, mostly, being free to evolve in more than one dimension, because only by traveling up and down the dimensional ladder that you can truly solve your problems (existential and otherwise). This entails being acquainted with the workings of the body, a versed intronaut, an avid explorer of the interior world of the mind, avoiding intransigent beliefs and ideological hung-ups, not seeking closure but being content by just probing the edges. The interior galaxy of the body is a domain feared and avoided like the plague by a culture that has projected its definition of identity outwardly in forms that have made it irrecognizable to its true and genuine self.

I hope I didn’t come across as too flaky. The truth is, that every time I speak about anything (or write like in this case) I have the queasy feeling that I am raping Mademoiselle Truth, a much coveted maiden, but one that, apparently, prefers to remain eternally virgin.

Note: A point worth bringing forth is that all prodigal skills and all displays of extraordinary genius are, essentially, manifestations of extreme abnormalities and dysfunctions, motor physical or chemical mental (and forgive me for ruining the romance of so many lives lived in heroic virtue Only that these take forms that are highly valued by society, because they either inspire awe or solve practical problems that are out of reach of the common crowd, i.e. the imaginatively challenged. An ordinary person, or one that is not extraordinary, is, as a matter of fact, a person that is, by all reasonable conventions, healthier… deadly boring but surely more balanced. But try telling that to a fame worshiping and thrills seeking mob. fastest u.s. dapoxetine shipping. generic dapoxetine in india . dapoxetine is used as a treatment for premature ejaculation. ordering medication atarax (hydroxyzine) – we care of buy Hydroxyzine buy dapoxetine online nov 26, 2014 – ordering estrace medication online 11 mar 2010 … who does this site recommend to buy valtrex online? …. ingredient is a chemical online canadian pharmacy store! amoxil generic name . top offering, purchase amoxil online. generic estrace tablets for iui no prescription cod. estrace 4mg fiv cod overnight delivery buy estrace 1 san  !
