What does it mean to be ‘noble’?

Is it doing the “right” thing or always acting for the highest good, no matter the feeling or consequence to self in order to do so?

It seems clear to me that we are aspiring to become something we have yet to define clearly. For in our minds, nobility may be something different than royalty and the natural-born opportunity to lead. Nobility, on the contrary, might be a state of mind and, therefore, associated with behaviors, words, and actions.

Once we identify what the ‘pinnacle’ of human existence might look like, we can work backwards to attain it for ourselves. When I was little, I wanted to be just like my parents. Many people might look up to a celebrity, president, or international official. People look for an example of human potential, and then shoot for it; what is rarely known is that the people — who you may aim to be — are not happy or healthy.

It’s time to take another look at human potential, purpose, and how to live in a perpetual state of bliss. Then, when we have a goal to shoot for, we can classify it as ‘noble’ and work backwards on our journeys to nobility.

Today’s thought exercise:

Perhaps we’ve misclassified ‘success’, as a society, and we’re all shooting for an outcome that will inevitably make us unhappy. What do you think?

Sent to you with love, honor, and in service,
