What is the most important thing you've learned on your own?

In three sentences, explain something that you've learned without being told by another person -- something you've figured out all by yourself. Here's an example:

"I learned how to paint with water colors by reading a book and searching for YouTube videos. It took me a while, but I figured out some techniques that really work for me. I'm not an expert yet, but I have discovered a real joy in painting."

It can be anything -- a practical skill (like painting) or a knowledge set (like how to use mathematics).

  • Mar 8 2013: Since March 2003, I have been able to discover during daily 12 to 16-hour sessions of consistent integrated high-powered thought, for example:
    (1) Individualism - Indivisible Dualism of "Heaven (Theory, lit. GodCraft) & Earth (Practice) - is the only "ism" in existence.
    (2) People (personified ideas) are like trees, receiving everything they require without "struggle", for they have no instrument to focus on "evil" (error, mistakes, problems) and a UNIQUE cherry tree does not try to give advice to the oak tree on how to bear acorns.
    (3) The point for our physical existence on earth is to OVERCOME (not "endure", but come again with thoughts from above, the highest common denominator) death here & now, while still alive. No one else can overcome our own death for us.

    The basis for these is contained in the world's #1 Mandatory Instruction Manual for timeless 4th-Layer wisdom (lit. white field; error-free realm) and perfect book (Ivan Panin; KJV & ASV only).
