Forrest Gump: “Stupid Is As Stupid Does"

We all have egos [defined as 'self': your consciousness of your own identity]. The healthier the ego, the more resilient the personality ---  which allows one to experience life's conflicts without feeling overly threatened and allows for learning to occur. Some people, however, when confronted with troubling information immediately rationalize the evidence away in order to eliminate 'cognitive & emotional dissonance'. Thus, intelligence and adaptability are blocked

"Ideologues" (whether secular or religious) feel especially threatened when their existing beliefs are put in jeopardy by factual evidence.  Their unhealthy ego structure is rigid and entrenched to the point that they'd rather be dead than admit that they could be 'dead wrong' about some things.  Their lack of "intelligence & adapatability" does not allow them to learn life’s lessons; therefore, karma backs up on them and eventually “caves the roof in”.

"Stupidity is often similar to evil, if you judge by the results."

“People believe lies not because they have to, but because they want to.”

“When sufficient proactive measures are not taken, reactive measures will eventually follow and are seldom sufficient nor desirable. Example: world overpopulation, global warming, etcetera.”

"All truth passes through three stages:
first, it is ridiculed;
next, it is violently attacked;
finally, it is held to be self-evident."

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Note: We are all prone to varying levels of stupidity at different times. If you find yourself bemoaning the stupidity of others, pause and self reflect — then Call Upon the Angels who work to cure stupidity, Anabiel and Samhiel.

Anabiel and Samhiel,
Please cure me of my stupidity.
Please make me whole again.
