Monday Ponderings {June 13th}

Reflecting…

In the world at large, people who are able to free themselves from this self-centered way of thinking are truly uncommon. Above all, when one stands to gain or lose, it is exceptionally difficult to step outside of oneself and make correct judgments, and thus one could say that people who are able to think Copernicus-style even about these things are exceptionally great people. Most people slip into self-interested way of thinking, become unable to understand the facts of the matter, and end up seeing only that which betters their own circumstances.
