what if when u were hanging out with badboy mingyu someone (like your parents or sibling or someone else w authority to ground you) saw u and they were like what r u doing with a boy like that!!! what would poor mingyu do :(

  • well first off mingyu’d be like ‘i can’t believe people think im a bad influence, it’s probably because im this tall’ and you’d be like ‘sorta, also you’re kinda intimidating’ and he’d be like me??? intimidating??? 
  • you’d point to all the piercings in his ear and the bomber jacket he’s got on and the fact that fellow badboy wonwoo is his best friend and he’d be like u know what…..maybe i do come off a little mean…..
  • but at the same time he’d really want to prove to your parent/sibling that he’s a good guy and that he just wants to protect you 
  • he’d probably be like “ask them if i can come over for dinner” and you’d be like ok,,,, and ofc when u ask they’re like “you want MINGYU to come over to dinner?” and you’d be like yes omg he’s not that bad
  • so mingyu comes over for dinner and actually wears like a button down and combs his hair and takes out a lot of his piercings but your family is still wary until mingyu starts talking about how he’s really good at like calculus and wants to be an investment banker and everyone at the table is like 0: 
  • he’s also super mannered and helps with the dishes and talks to your family about literature and like current events
  • by the end of the night your family loves him
  • when you walk him out to catch the bus home you’re like ‘do you really wanna be an investment banker?’ and mingyu snorts like ‘no, i wanna be in a rockbound but like your parents don’t need to know that hehe’

Is folly an innate human attribute? I once came across a book called, The Hindu Quest for the Perfection of Man (or something like that). Some believe it is possible for a human to be perfect, act perfectly, perfect love, perfect judgment, perfect compassion. Although, I think perfection is sort of a myth, and the closest thing to it is total acceptance of folly. What do you think? "At least he will shed his gravity ... abandon his rockbound principles, and for a while be a silly fool" -Erasmus

Cannot folly itself be perfect? 

“Nothing being more important than anything else, a man of knowledge chooses any act, and acts it out as if it matters to him.  His controlled folly makes him say that what he does matters and makes him act as if it did, and yet he knows that it doesn’t; so when he fulfills his acts he retreats in peace, and whether his acts were good or bad, or worked or didn’t, is in no way part of his concern. 

A man of knowledge may choose, on the other hand, to remain totally impassive and never act, and behave as if to be impassive really matters to him; he will be rightfully true at that too, because that would also be his controlled folly.” ~ Carlos Castaneda 

The idea of perfection is very serious, very uptight. Those who are oriented toward perfection must be taking themselves and their circumstances too seriously. Perfection cannot be perfect because it is afraid of imperfection. 

Life, especially human life, is a folly, a game. Knowing this for one’s self, we can come to know that of which perfection is but a shadow. 

The attempt for perfection is the attempt to transcend human limitations. Does the perfect person with the perfect life have any worries? All is in its right place; all is peaceful. Yet if that perfection comes from their body, mind, or circumstances, then it is impermanent and therefore threatened by change. 

Humanity is a game being played by God the Self as you right now. A game is not a place for perfection, it is a place to enjoy ourselves, to give ourselves over to folly yet also play within the rules. This Castaneda called ‘controlled folly’. 

If being human is a divine game, a divine sport, then what place does perfection have? In playing a game, perfection is contrary to the idea of sporting. In sport, you let things get messy, you play around and have fun. Before scores and winners and losers mattered, sporting was a way of setting ourselves free from the context of society. 

From the perspective of absolute truth, we are not and never were humans. So taking ourselves to be human is innately folly—not the humanness itself but thinking it to be our one real existence. If perfection is what you really seek, where else will it be found but in awakening from the illusion of separation and realizing yourself as what you truly are?

Then perfection is not attained or forced or fixed. It is found to already be there as your eternal presence.
