Dear Alexander #033: Purpose Must Come Before Everyone

“Every many knows that his highest purpose in life cannot be reduced to any particular relationship.”

I understand that to live a full life I must honour my personal legend as the highest order. I must subvert my life to my personal legend above all else.

There cannot be anyone or anything that comes before my personal legend.

To sacrifice my personal legend for another is akin to death — a metaphysical death that would weaken me and disserve my universe and everyone I come in contact with.

The consequences of not honouring my personal legend are grave. If I do not continually honour my personal legend I will be cheating myself and the world around me of a purposeful, disciplined, fulfilled authentic man.

When I live in accordance with my personal legend a harmony between nature and potential coalesce.

I must never give up my deepest purpose to placate another, if I do, ultimately everyone suffers in the end, and my purpose for Being burns.

In the end, I must be of servitude to the service of my personal legend and the world around me. Nothing is more important than that.
