“We should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality.”
Oscar Wilde makes a truly salient point on the triviality of serious matters and the seriousness of trivial matters. Think about it. In your present circumstances and with everything going on in your personal, professional, and social life, really think about the possible benefits and ramifications of following Wilde’s advice:
If you removed the weight from all grave matters – to the point where they truly take flight in weightlessness – how much lighter would you feel?
What would it take for you to make this ‘flip’? In a manner, the heart of resistance is the ego. Here too, Wilde captures it well:
“It is a curious fact that people are never so trivial as when they take themselves seriously.”
The So What Factor (SWF):
Infinite Potentiality Theory (IPT) ennobles all individuals to reclaim effective agency at the singular level. (‘Singular’ being pivotal here because today’s electronic technologies mediate the individual’s effective agency to make a difference – one person at a time – ergo, singularly without dependence on others.) By so doing, s/he is empowered to realize his inherent and infinite creative potentiality (ICP). As soon as s/he does this, s/he attains ultimate freedom (UF) of and from the self and all related fetters of the self.
By setting aside the ego – as a fetter of the self – and giving weightlessness to gravity, you can ‘flip’ your reception and reaction to the serious and the trivial with relative ease. This is not to say that you must first attain UF before you can go forward with the ‘flip’. Instead, the ‘flip’ can be seen as a mediating action towards UF. In other words, as another avenue towards UF, it runs parallel to the one proposed by IPT (namely, the realization of ICP).
No matter which avenue you choose, the destination – ultimate freedom – is thereby arrived and so too, the benefits:
Letting go of ego – and its weighted burdens – is a liberation towards ultimate freedom.
Realizing ICP – the avenue of creativity – is a proactive, collaborative, empowering ennoblement towards ultimate freedom.
There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choice. Both paths are worthy. Every experience towards UF is unique to each individual.
Whichever you choose, IPT encourages you to your highest ennoblement and challenges you to transcend to your (creative) potentiality!
