BUDDHIST

There’s this really cool Russian app called «Buddhist» (play on words; also means «someone who wakes you up» in Russian — pronounced, «boodeest»), where a random person calls you to wake you up. It populates a list of people you can call, and then you get called when it’s time for you to wake up. Never deal with impersonal and nerve wrenching alarm clocks ever again. Wake up to a personal touch. It is the perfect way to get that positive momentum going from the moment you wake up. Awesome. Some Russian language ability required.

POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL MOMENTUM

Human power grows from positive resonance with the superorganism.  In a well-functioning system, intelligence, competence, and respectability are rewarded, because they increase the health and benevolence of the system as a whole.  This happens when the people in charge have an expansive sense of self which is well integrated into the system they guide (and great leadership is primarily the guidance of the led and the enabling of their success and personal power-integration).  This is the benevolence-power.  Unfortunately, all too frequently, we encounter a different situation in our institutions and organizations today — in the private world, and much more in the government organizations.  Too frequently, the super-organism has dysfunction stemming from the people at the top, and spreading inexorably to the bottom.

The reason that positive psychological momentum is so important is that it is the repository of mental positivity that makes us psychologically attractive to our fellow human beings — facilitating the human connections that make success more likely; and it feeds into our self-esteem, which increases self-confidence, without which it is impossible to exercise any conviction related to the truth as we see it — and without this, we are bound to become impotent victims of whatever current happens to carry us along; and the current of the zeitgeist today is carrying us swiftly over the edge of a rocky cliff.  If you want to be successful: be happy!

To overcome this, the Transegoist must relearn what our society has attempted to weed out of the human psyche: that his natural state is that of a predatory animal.  Most of the people that still have a predatory instinct are, incidentally, the same people who are the most successful in the system; the ones who are too stupid to be susceptible to the subtleties of the anti-humanist zeitgeist being brought to bear upon them in their schools, churches, and colleges.  The intelligent must rediscover their instincts — our eyes are at the front of our heads; we were designed by both God and nature to tear flesh from bone.

1.  His rediscovery of his predatory soul enables him to shed false guilt inculcated into him by the parasitic educational system.  This frees his mind to reestablish positive psychological momentum.

2.  This momentum is sustained by identifying the elements of strength within the system and integrating with them.

3.  This momentum is protected by identifying when confrontation with weak people and dysfunctional superorganismal elements is either necessary, or worth the risk.

Successful implementation of this by superior individuals defeats systemic dysfunction.

It can be done.
