“I’m starting with the man in the mirror, I’m asking him to change his ways.” In this week’s podcast I talk about the internal emotional states that cause us to continually act out the victim/oppressor dynamic and how internal reflection helps to change the external world. Can we ever feel empowered and live without fear while clinging for dear life to our right to be victims? Are we prepared to stand out from the crowd and start telling a new story?
In lieu of an actual reality, we rush to create our own reality. So often, what we want to happen in life is upended by actual events; it’s no wonder we project our truth onto situations that counter our internal narrative. It’s easier than accepting disappointment or acknowledging we may be wrong.
What is the benefit of developing a sense of inner neutrality and how much responsibility do we have to get involved in solving other people’s problems? Often, we are the keepers of other people’s secrets, or we are privy to information that may help others to make informed decisions yet we stay quiet. Why?
Wisdom is only gained by walking your own path. In this week’s podcast I take some time to walk through the forest and drop beneath the swirl of chaotic energy that permeates our existence. I talk about the danger of substituting information and knowledge for wisdom and identifying too much with our intellect. The shift that many have spoken about has already happened and what we are witnessing are the death throes of a dying system. How can we develop feelings of internal support and peace while the storms rage on?
