Wise Words from Mr Tutwaller

Mr Tutwaller offers sound and stable advice to politicians, clerics and academicians, who value both clarity and ambiguity. And who well understand that straight talk is certain evidence of a limited and narrow mind.

But for the ministry of such wise and learned persons, how will we lesser advanced people who lack doctorates, collars, and civil office ever rise above the limitations of language and learn to serve abstractions such as humanity and justice? How are we to self-actualize if we’re restricted to serving particular people who themselves are also hindered by language and thus limited in how they think about God, the world, and themselves. Thank you, Mr. Tutwaller, for showing me the way to embrace ambiguity so that I too can have a sense of belonging to a more noble and liberated humanity. I feel freer already.

Yes. You do seem to be leaning toward a more open and freer state of mind but I am concerned that there is a hint of sarcasm in your writing and therefore you may still be clinging onto a false sense of specific meaning attributed to certain words. But remember, we must never grasp at absolutes, definitely never! You must always keep an open mind - that's for sure. So, do not give any more thought to any sort of definite, finalized ideas. Oh, and here's an epiphany: beware of revelations!

Oh, sorry. What I meant to say was,"Redarguo quinque magis eligo." That's Latin for, "Blah, blah, blah." In either language the random sounds can be applied to any object, idea or intention of the heart. Oh, here I go again using words with attributed meaning. Sorry. I suppose I had better go back to listening to your sound advice. Or maybe that idea was a revelation. Now I'm confused....

Read the Bhagavad Gita and meditate for several hours on the value of detachment from all that you value and you will be just fine.

The what?? Does that have anything to do with stoicism? Remember, I'm the sort of limited person who only understands dead white guys. That's why I need Mr. Tutwaller's help.
