Situation Vacant: Developing True Individuality
To become a True Individual you need objectivity, clarity, and intelligence in the broadest sense. You need to be aware that actions have consequences, and take responsibility for your actions. You also need to be receptive. As an individual you are free – free from group conditioning. You have developed self-consciousness, you know what you are doing, and are not reactive or mechanical.
You are yourself, set apart from the mass of humanity. You are not psychologically dependent on others, you have self-determination and you are creative. You accept that you may be unpopular. You will be developing emotions that are positive and refined. You are able to stand alone, and you are able to encourage others to become more individual themselves.
We want you!
