My name is RA Meyer. For years I have devoted my life to studying and attempting to practice the principles of Objectivism. I could tell you about my sacrifices during this period…how I selflessly gave and gave. Hopefully you know this isn’t true. I would never purposely sacrifice a higher value for a lower value. All of my efforts corresponded to my value system. I always live what I believe to be my highest values. And living the life of an Objectivist Warrior is my highest value.
What really fired me up and caused me to change the format of this blog was the marvelous discovery of three works of Ayn Rand at a local Half Price bookstore.

As you probably know…Ayn Rand’s Objectivism has its ardent supporters and critics who hate her philosophical system. These two groups will never see eye to eye. Let’s get beyond the conflict and ask an important question. Is it possible Objectivism soars as a formula for success? Let’s find out.
Here’s a definition of selfishness critics attach to Objectivism.

“For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.”
Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
Does your path have heart? Are you able to take heart in the new day. If you can’t…your path is void of heart.
Have you thought about those unfortunate people who awaken in the morning…desperately hoping dreams of joy and happiness somehow renewed them. Much to their dismay, they unhappily discover their slumbers reinforced their misery?

The science of Human Action soars as a deductive system that starts its reasoning with the actions of individuals. Objectivism stands tall as the philosophy of rational self-interest. It presents us with a solid, integrated system for living. Although there exists some differences in the epistemology (the theory and origins of knowledge) of Human Action (Praxeology) and Objectivism..these marvelous tools of knowledge are closely inter-related. Both realize…all thought begins with the lone individual. The Objectivist Warrior knows…the two disciplines supply him potent weapons for Mastering the Social Maze.
He considers Ludwig von Mises and Ayn Rand as the “Dad and Mom” of enlightened self-interest. Mises’ magnum opus “Human Action” reigns as the masterpiece of praxeological reasoning. Ayn Rand’s great philosophical masterpiece “Atlas Shrugged” soars as the Objectivist Bible. Although, I’m not sure if she would react favorably upon hearing…I connected the term “Bible” to her integrated system of logic and reason.

Women can enjoy the benefits of discovering the way of the Integrated Individual. I am honored to have the privilege of narrating an amazing woman’s transformation to self-actualization. Following is her story of another wonderful day in her life—a life of continuous fulfillment and achievement. Here’s the Lady Warrior.
Morning – A New Day Begins
As soon as I awoke, I knew it was going to be a great day. It seems this is a common occurrence since I discovered the way of the Lady Warrior. Now after experiencing this wonderful day I embrace my pillow for a night of sweet dreams…reminiscing about all of my experiences.

Individuals on a spiritual path eventually hear about the virtues of non-attachment and self-denial. Some teachings inform them that desire causes all pain and suffering, which obviously has an element of truth.
Once you become attached to your desires…you ride an endless cycle of alternating pleasure and pain…especially if you’re stuck in the Hive Mind Mentality. The Social Maze becomes a troublesome environment of failure and frustration…with a few minutes of pleasure sprinkled in. Continue reading “Illusions of Self-Denial and Suffering”
Here’s a platitude you’ve probably heard from a social altruist. “This is for the good of society.” Of course, he never defines who this society character is. He assumes everyone knows what he is talking about…or maybe he hopes nobody figures it out. The Integrated Individual understands the dangers involved in doublespeak.
Do you know that Social Altruists believe in selflessness and self-denial. They exhort individuals, such as you, to sacrifice your best interests…and conform to the Hive Mind Mentality.” At different times in history, they used other names for their master, such as “state”, “collective” etc. Whatever they choose to call their brand of slavery, it always means the sacrifice of the individual for the “good” of others…which really means for the benefit of the elite.
