Success Is A Relative Concept

laitman_539Question: Can there be success without competition?

Answer: It depends on what you consider success to be. For example, if I am criticized in newspapers, I consider this a success: they have paid attention to me. Someone else may consider this a misfortune, but I don’t care.

I believe that if someone is right, let him be scolded, so what? Perhaps people cannot comprehend his actions in any other way. So success is a relative concept.

I do not mind being criticized in all publications and on the Internet, even if I am called the most horrible and harmful for humanity. In some way it draws attention to what I strive to deliver to the world. And when they read my articles maybe they will be impacted somehow.

Question: Why do you need that kind of success?

Answer: People will become interested in why I am being criticized, and thus they will get to learn and feel a little bit about what I am saying concerning correcting the world and the fact that human beings have an opportunity to come to a better state of existence instead of a third world war. I want to leave some lasting imprint on them.

Question: Let’s suppose that you are given permission to publish four lines. What would you write?

Answer: It goes without saying that nothing can be explained in four lines. I can offer people replacing suffering with happiness, fear of death with a sense of eternity. And if they are not indifferent to these things, everything else can be learned from within the method itself.
