The Ordinary Hero
I came across a piece of writing by an unknown author. The original is here:
I loved it and gave it my own little tweaks to convey what I frequently try to convey here.
A hero is only an ordinary human who does the right thing consistently.
Non-truth is what changes through time.
Truth is the permanent basics of reality, realized by wisdom through generations.
(if you care enough to look)
(if you care enough to be wise)
All our “tricks” have been changing for thousands of years.
The old teachings stay as the cat is let out.
What we need to pay attention to,
is here, is now
our being and us applying them.
Heroes may not always win,
but they never lose.
