Evolution or Forced Change

That’s the underlying message I feel some groups impose on society. It could be the EPA, animal rights gay marriage, education, or even food choices. Recently I heard the vegan community lamenting beef because of some allergic reaction the beef had thus promoting that vegan is better.

Everyone has the right to have their own opinion and you’re free to partake in your beliefs, however, what is the underlying desire of some to force others to abide by their viewpoint, to change laws, procedures or requirements to fit their view? The only thing I can think of is insecurity and power.

If you’re secure in your beliefs you certainly don’t need to have them validated by anyone else.  Perhaps you feel alone therefore by forcing others to your viewpoint will make you feel better, not an outcast.

Power, perhaps the thrill of controlling others does something for you and the only way to do that is to shame or force someone to abide by your beliefs.

The problem with forcing, controlling or restricting others is that unless they follow your way it doesn’t last. It’s on a façade. Persuasion is a much better tool to use. When people are controlled by restricting their way of being they will eventually rebel. It’s like how the saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” It also applies here.

Whether it’s food choices, education or gay marriage it doesn’t matter how many laws are passed it won’t change the core belief each and every one of us has. Take for example abortion, even though it became law there is still a huge resistance for its acceptance.

In order for changes to really take hold, it has to follow a natural evolutionary process one in which there is no resistance, the greater the push the greater the resistance.  In many of the areas I mentioned there has been much resistance and yet it still continues to be pushed by a few. If it has to be pushed than it’s not evolving naturally.

Curious, what changes do you think will have staying power?

Need a Tune Up?

When you’re feeling a bit out of sorts with yourself, if you’ve lost your groove the ideas and solutions just aren’t there then it’s time for a tune up, an intellectual tune up of sorts.

Sometimes you just need to get away from it all just to figure out what you need to do.

That’s why breaks and lunches are good at work, physical activity, a weekend get-away, time with friends and vacation time is essential for your soul.

By getting in touch, even briefly, with your child like fun side reactivates and reenergizes your mind both intellectually and emotionally. It’s as if your core being says thank you. I needed that.

It opens up and relaxes your body and mind so that you can receive the information you need to continue on your journey through life.

Next time you’re having a mental block; don’t berate yourself for taking the break you need. Tell your boss you need to get in for a tune up. No need to go in to details.

Stressed Out?

What causes stress? Most would say that having a lot to do but not having the time to do it causes stress and they would be right. But why is it that some people get a lot accomplished yet they don't appear to be stressed out? We all have the same 24 hrs in a day.

If all you had to deal with was what was happening at the moment, would you be stressed? Not likely. What makes a person stressed out are all the other things that are not done. In our day to day life we spend so much time just doing the daily stuff that all the other things get pushed aside. You know the stuff. The stuff you keep putting off and putting off like; cleaning out the garage, getting caught up on your photos, fixing that door hinge, giving away old clothes, having some friends over for dinner, or calling that friend that you've been meaning to for the past five years.

Typically we rationalize that it's not that important, and in the grand scheme of life it's not. However, it still is in the back of our mind taking up space that could be used for better things.

Therefore, ask yourself what it would feel like to have absolutely everything on your internal list done. What would that look like? Imagine how free you would feel. Can you? If you can't then it'll never happen? It can be hard work but when you work on doing the stuff on your internal list you will gradually become freer. Your life will become less stressful and you will be able to live in the moment. Now, get busy.
