Comfort makes you lose your edge. Comfort with what you know, or what you can do, comfort sometimes means you stop learning, observing, improving. You figure you know it. The game gets bigger, or changes, and everything always changes, you stay where you are.So you fall behind.
But of course self-development shouldn’t just be an egotistical/self-absorbed process.
Oh, wait, this sounds familiar, tortoise and the rabbit? Damn. Nothing is ever original.

Stay alert, stay alive. Comfort can kill you. Ganelo Banelo. For those in the know.

    Why are these inherently good things? Why is stopping these, bad things?

    >you stay where you are.So you fall behind.

  3. i guess there isn’t anything BAD with learning,observing, improving. Inherent is a tough word. Progress is generally seen as positive.
    You don’t need to learn always in the formal sense, but development is quite encompassing, including spiritual development, personality development, all of that.
    But someone who chooses NOT to, isn’t doing anything “BAD” I guess, unless you believe opportunity of ability, given by God, should be respected through fulfilling the opportunity.

    Theres a popular Rumi phrase, realting to teh inherent good or bad in a sense:
    Out beyond Right and Wrong, there is a field, I will meet you there.
