Abjure the Collective

Exercise moderately and consistently. Practice clear thinking. Articulate your thoughts precisely in writing every day. Commit at least one novel thought to writing a day. Exhort and uplift always. Do not assume the world is one way or another. Be alert to what is happening right now in front of you. Wherever possible experience beauty. Acclimatize your mind to focus, expenditure and relaxation. Understand what frightens you and annihilate that fear. Live without guilt. The only Sin is betrayal. Pay no allegiance to any institution. Your loyalty is reserved for human beings. Disdain political propaganda and marketing rhetoric of all kinds. Love your fellow man and look for the good in him, but be ever aware of his cunning. Practice general benevolence and prudent caution. Pray often. Develop the capacity for aggression. Never make a fetish of talent. Develop diligence of intellect and will. Relate to your life as an artist does to his work; as an object of creation. Your loyalty is to God, your family and to Virtue. Abjure the Collective in all its guises.
