I am currently reading a book on this subject although it speaks of IQ, EQ and SQ and that if -
IQ as the intelligence that seeks to understand the 'What'.
EQ as the intelligence that seeks to understand the 'How'.
Then the SQ is the intelligence to understand the 'why' of things.
Now i am only a 1/4 of the way through the book but already it has brought up some interesting questions.
One of the questions it asks is - What do you understand is the truth of your own situation at this given time?
By truth it mean -
Not the voice in your head that plays the denial game.
Not the 'make do' with my lot in life.
Not the 'well i can justify why i am doing what is it i am doing at present'
I suppose it asks for you to take off the gloss or rose tinted glasses and just assess the situation in an objective manner.
Well i did this last night and scared myself .. I came to realise very quickly just how unauthentic i am being. How can i live the 'truth' when i am too busy justifying my false truths.
Is it even possible to be completely truthful with yourself?
Sometimes we have to do the mundane in order to reach the heights we are capable of reaching so in the process we are not being true but we are acquiring the truth in steps. Or what if we are yet to find out the truth, what if we don't know our purpose yet
They quoted Nietzsche and i have fallen in love with it ..
He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.
Any thoughts on the subject??
