Your world view is hidden from your view, hidden from your awareness.
And it is, of course. World view is how the world IS for you, not how it seems.
If you have a fixed world view, than all the King's Horses and All the King's Men Could Not Put a new world view for you... unless you are willing to become flexible.
Cognitive flexibility has been more broadly described as the ability to adjust one's thinking from old situations to new situations as well as the ability to overcome responses or thinking that have become habitual and adapt to new situations.Continue reading "Are you flexible?"
"There are people who take the heart out of you, and there are people who put it back," wrote author Charles de Lint. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, your heart will encounter far more of the latter than the former types of people in 2020. There may be one wrangler who tries to take the heart out of you, but there will be an array of nurturers who will strive to keep the heart in you — as well as boosters and builders who will add even more heart." my horoscope by Rob Brezsny came in the mail today.
I had an important and eye-opening insight today. A looking back...
Let me tell you the story so you get the fact that the likelihood of me ever discovering this was between none and zero.
It began some 30 years ago when I was a magazine publisher. Every time a magazine was already in the street, I went to my computer and cleaned up the space, I archived everything that was said and done, made room for the new issue. I did the same thing in the office.
I called this time and energy consuming step "cleaning from the root", or alternatively "preparing for a new harvest"...
My life was organized, orderly, I was thin, vibrant, beautiful, and OK.
The idea that you can get smarter needs to get clarified.
Why? Because people cannot see smart, cannot see how smart shows up, cannot see... anything other than themselves, how THEY are.
I talk to a few people every week. And I can tell that the way they see me is in comparison to themselves. Not as a person on my own right... no, they see me in the same picture as themselves... and they measure... hell, they measure, relentlessly, and guess what? I always come up short... or at best the same as them.
And we are talking about all kinds of aspects, levels of education, smarts, good/bad, etc... and yet in every aspect that is the case. This is how the homo sapiens machine works.
This article may be short, maybe long... but I am intending it to be an ever growing piece.
I may be different from you, but I don't think so.
I think every person, you, behave like you know everything there is to know to do what you want to do. And what you don't know is ignored as if it didn't exist... until, of course, what you want to do isn't getting done with what you know.
Or if you do manage to do it, it doesn't produce the result you hoped it would, you were told it would... OR the result DOESN'T LAST... The flash in the pan phenomenon I have seen in Landmark Education, or with the stuck students of mine, maybe you.
