A few +1s ago, we talked about Walter Russell and the sound of joy
 
Today I’d like to talk about another one of his powerful insights.
 
Here it is. 
 
He tells us: Mediocrity is self-inflicted. Genius is self-bestowed.”
 
Here’s the slightly longer version: “I believe that every man has consummate genius within him. Some appear to have it more than others only because they are aware of it more than others are, and the awareness or unawareness of it is what makes each one of them into masters or holds them down to mediocrity. I believe that mediocrity is self-inflicted and that genius is self-bestowed.”
 
Today’s +1 is very simple.
 
Are you bestowing genius upon yourself or inflicting mediocrity?
 
Well, which is it?
 
Genius. Mediocrity.
 
I agree with Walter (and countless other teachers). We ALL have “consummate” (Golden Buddha!) genius within ourselves. 
 
Can you see it?
