He whosoever harbors a spark of divinity in his core, manifesting itself through sporadic but driven action, piercing through the dense and dark mediocrity of humankind's self flattery and deception, shall do good to reflect, and ponder.
That not one word was courageously spoken in times past that challenged the established social order and did not consequently elicit the madden blabber and pestiferous indignation of the lower layers of society.
For all human interaction is ultimately a game of self defense, and the prevailing strategy that of rooking one's position within the safe harbor of consensus, and any violation of it is perceived as an existential threat to the social organism itself.
He whosoever believes, firmly in his heart, to hold a gem of truth, so high above him that he is to be the carrier, not the originator, of its message and value, will do good to remember, that in bestowing this precious and rare gift upon the bickering fools, the savage and the uneducated, the hedonists and oblivious, fierce resentment will be the only reward.
For in order to bestow this gift he will have to implicitly elevate himself from a position of supposed equality to his peers to an elevated "plateau of superiority", from which to hand "down" this knowledge, and down is the only direction it will appear to move towards, if high is the message revealed in it.
The cruficixion of Jesus of Nazareth is a metaphor for the resentment of humankind towards the bringer of a higher moral framework.
Exposure to such a framework will be uncomfortable to most, as it will coerce them to face the inadequacy and pettiness of their own goals and minds - for this they will fight fiercely, not against the idea but against its carrier. They will fight to punish him, for having brought an uncomfortable truth. For indirectly diminishing their private and public worth.
And lastly, because whilst they may be used to seeing someone be richer, more powerful, happier or more serene, they just cannot accept the final blow dealt to their ego by seeing someone who, under the same tragic existential conditions, has exceeded them in compassion and good character.
For this reason one's public image is to be managed meticulously, and one's facade of humility must be painstakingly crafted and must permeate all one does or says.
A bringer of a higher moral message must be humble. A poorest of the poor. Or, one who inflicts poverty voluntarily onto himself.
Members of the lower layers of society must always find comfort in the fact that they are in some way better off than such a person, that they are respected, that his demeanor is deferential to them, and that they are in no way threatened by his existence.
Persuading them of this ought to be simple, for simple are their minds and motivations and great are their vanity and their desire for flattery.
