Stupidity is Blind, Deaf and Dumb

The most important activities in our lives occur in the same place, day after day. Yet stupers (short, yet again, for those disagreeably stupid persons) perpetually ignore this site, behaving as if it was nonexistent. For the meager mind, it is in fact, nonexistent. Where is this place? In the six or so inches between one’s ears.

Case in point: I have two aunts, Fay and Tori. Both are gorgeous women, around sixty-years-old; both exude health and wealth, thanks to husbands who are not just physicians, but specialists in their respective fields. And each aunt is the parent of three, wonderful adult children with bright futures. So what’s their problem? Stupidity.

For the past almost four decades, Aunts Fay and Tori have persistently loathed each other using great pretense. By pretense, I mean when together in public, they’re all strained smiles and overly gushing compliments. Meanwhile, they’re stewing over perceived insults, invisible to all but themselves. When away from each other, much hand wringing, bad mouthing and nose wrinkling goes on about the other. Don’t worry; thanks to the wonders of Botox, all symbols of stress are as nonexistent as their brainpower.

We all complain sometimes about other people. Authentic humans know when to stop. Counterfeit humans do not. They’re so busy watching others, there is no attempt at self improvement. In fact, the self is buried alive beneath the reckless ravings and perpetual fixation on others.

Besides complaining about each other, these aunts also waste their energy trying to outdo the other. Aunt Fay told everyone that her college age son was at Berkeley, leading all to believe he was a student at the University of California, Berkeley. In fact, he worked at a photo shop. Aunt Tori’s daughter just got married. Tori made a point of telling all that her new son-in-law graduated from Yale. True or not, who cares? Does that make them better people? Did I mention that both women appear constantly unhappy?

Certain creatures are blind at night while others can’t see in the daytime. Stupers are blind, day and night. They’re so busy watching others, they forget about eradicating their own weaknesses first. Nonuse or negative use of the mind is a great character flaw.

I don’t believe either of my idiot aunts is capable of harboring kind thoughts toward each other. The habit of loathing has gone on far too long. So instead, if they sought my advice, I would suggest that in order to maintain sanity, they focus their thoughts and energy on all they have to feel grateful for in their lives. Such focus would instantly jump start the empty mind, filling it with worthy thoughts and gradually generate the missing puzzle piece of happiness. Perhaps it would even soften their harsh feelings toward each other to such an extent (eventually anyway) that all such feelings would disappear.

Think first, last and always.

    Sounds like a serious case of jealousy combined with stupidity, or are they one and the same? Your right. If people just worry about themselves and try to work on making themselves better, they’d be a lot happier.

    If I knew you, I would say you are talking about my aunts through marriage. They don’t even live in the same states and they are feuding.
    So, what do you think of that?

    Sounds like my sister… sad but true.

    They are close cousins and are often seen together.
    I think your case is even more ridiculous than mine!
    Sorry, dawn. We can’t change others, but we can change the way we view them so we can maintain our peace of mind.
