Why So Serious?

“Any philosophy or ideology or school of thought that takes life seriously is wrong.

Think about that. Think of how many ideologies this rules out.

There’s a deep reason for this. Seriousness is a tell-tale sign of lack of self-reflection.

Comedy, mockery, and satire have always been a threat to people in power, because they shine too much light, and people seeking power must do so in an unconscious way, otherwise they would stop themselves.

The ego’s game is to act serious. It must be that way. Because the ego’s life is always at stake.

Notice that highly conscious people are able to make fun of themselves and be playful.”
