“Who is Creating the Future Nobody Wants?”
I gave this a quick skim and plan to return to it later. I thought it worth sharing in the meantime.
This leapt out at me: “Nowhere in our genetic code are we wired for destruction of all-things-sacred in the world.”
I’m not so sure about that. We do it so awfully well. It’s far easier to destroy than to create.
We’re better at it. Our knee-jerk reaction–unless we take a moment to stop and think–is to rend and tear.
Empathy can be learned. You kind of have to want to learn it, though.
Same as deciding that no, you don’t have to act on your first impulse, that you have the capacity to think.
It’s just a little (or a lot) harder, and human beings tend to prefer the easier road. We probably feel we’ve earned it.
So. I’ll be back to stop and think.
“Why dream of anything bigger if we can’t get past our current self?” – Dr. Joe Dispenza
Moving on in life is something so many of us want to do. It’s also something we’re scared of doing. Change is still something unknown, something different, even if we really need it.
What we should be scared of is staying in untenable situations, of dragging ourselves through yet another day of the same old.
But we get comfortable, and we think there’s always another day to get started, or any number of other reasons we deal out to ourselves on a daily basis.
That’s why this post by Dr. Joe Dispenza is so important. He goes after the four biggest impediments we place in our own way, such as getting bogged down with immediate needs, unable to look a step further, and then takes us from knowledge to action.
This is my first encounter with him and I like it. Give it a try.
