I enjoyed this brief Quillette interview with Robert Greene. It both contextualizes much of what comes up in Sangha discussions. Getting over “ourselves” is serious business. But I write this with a smile on my face.
Question, question, question. Don’t assume that the reason that you feel something, and that it’s right just because you feel it. And in that kind of process, you will become rational, you’ll become somebody who can use empathy, you will have the ability to judge people properly and accept them for who they are as opposed to continually moralizing, wishing people were something that they’re not.
