Actions speak louder

Written by jayson. No comments Posted in: Ethics, Philosophy

I talked before about how expression of truth are expressions of value. While the basic idea is sound, it is important to note what exactly an expression of value is.

It can be said that speaking words is an action, but merely speaking what you believe is true does not make it so. As an actualizer, you are what you do, and by extension, your reality becomes what you do. The satisfaction of desires occurs best when your thoughts, words, and actions are in line with the abstractions that you create. The conversation you have with reality in its becoming is communicated by your actions – it only listens to what you do, not what you say you want.

Your actions speak your values, determine the abstractions you create, and determine what your reality becomes.

You can decide you want to change, but it will do no good unless you act in a manner that will cause that change. Ritual can align your actions with your values.

It is for this reason that you must pay attention to the abstractions that you choose to create, because they will shape what you do, and thus who you are. In complement, your actions will determine what abstractions will be created, and what your reality will be like. It is through this duality that the power process is fulfilled.
