Why become an individual?

win ERIC KIM selfie

The way I see it:

The only good way to live … to become an individual.

Why do we see the individual as evil?

selfie ERIC KIM side

The individual is one who devotes his own life to focus on his own self-development. And why is this considered evil? Because others (society) doesn’t want you to focus on you. They want you to focus on them.

In other words:

Any energy you spend on devoting to your own self-development is energy NOT being used to help them.

Who do we desire to become?

My thought:

To become an artist who is remembered through the eons.

Who is remembered?

It is up to you. Do you desire to be remembered and leave a legacy?
