I felt like an idiot a couple decades ago; I was attending a birthday party and in a conversation about wine, which at that time I knew absolutely nothing about.

Without understanding the depth of my self discovery I purchased ‘Wine for Dummies’ and educated myself.  The same uneasy feeling repeated itself in other occasions until I concluded that, I’m intimidated by my own ignorance and learn to delve into by asking questions as to pick that person’s brain about the subject matter before I can gather material to better inform myself.

The many successful reality programs available on the screen, depicting opulence and superficiality is brain washing the masses to value ‘the good things’ at the cost of greater ignorance.

The rich of decades ago segregate themselves, and how they spent their money.  It’s clear today by the actions of the affluent that they need to flaunt their conquests among themselves while the peasants from the cheap seats learn to be intimidated by the ones that have more than they do; creating a society of shallow minds.

But the kicker here is that the rich are intimidated by people’s personal growth, which can be achieved by taking free trips to your local library.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

If my writing helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.


Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshipers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.

Thank you.
