    absolute truth is very real. your ego will always be biased. if you think your ego is truly objective, look at the people around you who believe the same thing... you've barely scratched the surface of real honesty.

    It's all about knowing what NOT to do.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    And this dovetails nicely with the Common Law where everything not forbidden is permitted.

    Go for what you want.
    Make sure you're happy.
    Also make sure everyone you love is happy.
    Keep breathing, except if you want to die.
    Mind your own business.
    Stand up for the weaker.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    The more you learn, the less you know.

    You do not get older by being stupid.

    If it looks like a fish, acts like a fish, talks like a fish, it's a fish.

    Never ask a question you do not really want to know the answer too.

    Use the golden and the silver rule as a guideline, and allow some exceptions to them.

    I've got my rules written down. The major, unchanging things that 28 years on this Earth have taught me so far...Copy/Pasting from the note I posted on my facebook of them.

    Now presenting: Phoenix_400's Basic Rules for Life.

    These are subject to revision as I gain more life experience. Those listed below are the ones that have endured everything up to this point in my life.

    1.) Nothing is impossible. The moment you start to believe something is impossible, you create a breaking point in yourself. When the moment comes that the impossible thing is standing before you, you'll snap.

    2.) Never put anything past anybody. Especially if they have something to gain...or lose.

    3.) You'll be amazed at what you'll find yourself capable of doing when you've got no other choice.

    4.)If you can't tackle a problem head-on, come at it sideways. Think outside the box.

    5.) Keep pushin'. Don't give up. Give it everything you've got. Give it your BEST.

    6.) Let it ride. Accept the fact that some things are simply out of your hands. Be satisfied with the fact that you gave it your all, no matter if it turns out good or bad.

    7.)Keep breathin. Life gets hard. The burden gets heavy. If you don't have the strength to make it to the end of the day, concentrate on makin' it to the next hour, the next minute, the next breath. One step at time, one breath at time, until the weight lifts(and it will) and you can carry on.

    8.) Everything serves the balance. For anything to exist there has to be a counterpoint to define it. No good without evil, light without dark, order without chaos. No freewill without fate. How can we call it 'day' if there was no 'night' to be its opposite? For things to happen for a reason there must things that happen completely at random. If the scales tip too far in one direction, everything goes to hell. Balance must be maintained.

    9.)LIVE your life. Don't just survive. Find the things that make you happy, that give you purpose, and go after them. There's so much more to life than just surviving.

    10.) Analyze, Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome!

    11.) Our successes boost our confidence and help push us forward, but its our mistakes that really help us grow as people. Every mistake you make is a chance to learn about yourself, make changes, and grow. Don't be afraid to take a chance, to fuck up, because you may just learn something profound. Own your mistakes, they're just as much a part of you as your successes.

    12.) Even the best people make the worst mistakes sometimes. What sets them apart is they try to learn from them. They try not to make the same mistake twice. Yeah, you may not get it right on the 1st try, maybe not even on the 100th. It could take moments or it could take years. As long as you're trying though, you're way ahead of all those people who get dragged down by their mistakes and never bother to learn, or improve. That counts for something.

    NOTE ON MY NOTE: If this one is of interest to anyone, you might want to check back on it occasionally. I'm editing it as I come up with the words to express some of the things that I've always kept in the back of my mind, but have never tried to explain before.
    "People in glass houses shouldn't use Windex when living near bird sanctuaries."- myself

    "We are never alone my friend. We are constantly in the company of victories, losses, strengths and weaknesses. Make no mistake, life is war...and war is hell. Those who fight the hardest will suffer the most...but that's what you have to do: Fight. As long as you're feeling pain, then there's hope...because only the dead do not suffer." -RD Metcalf
