Stars, Flags and Fireworks, smoke em if you got em,, because you have nailed it on the head.
I am actively working to change how i REACT to the world, and life. You say if very well, when you spoke about those who really LIVE.
Our robotic nature to be of the herd, follow, let others take charge and lead, all contribute to the mess we are facing right now,, or as a friend
would correct my speech here,,, 'the Situation we are facing". Even our words we tell ourselves daily affect this outcome.
So here for example, instead of a 'throw your hands up in the air", attitude that labels it a "mess",
think instead Situation.
Our Semantics sometimes are the Real Controlling factor that is overlooked.
We put ourselves in our worldview prisons, with words.
We tell ourselves constantly with inner chatter with words that to Ego are valid.
The words the World uses to sedate us we absorb and utilize. It sedates us to the fact we are manipulating ourselves here most of the time, so no need
because we Auto hypnotize ourselves into positions of helplessness.
I do it every day, like most.
But Unlike Most, I recognize and try to use methods such as NLP to alter my own perceptions into a better modality.
It is Hard work upon the 'self', but No One else will do it,,so we must Alter ourselves instead of allowing others,,,like,, TV, Church,
neighbors,friends, gurus, and such to alter and mold you into servents of themselves, either as consumers, believer/followers or what not.
When I got to the end of your piece here, and saw the quote,, one of my favorites,, emblazed everywhere here at home, from the refrigerator to
artwork. BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
That is the key,,, another is expressed in my quote at the bottom from Marianne Williamson. Read it, and know it as True.
I also believe that it is like in the movie MERLIN where to defeat Mab, they turned their backs and ''forgot' her, ignored her ,, even though they
heard her screams at the end, pleading. They Turned their back on what she represented to make her powerless, quit focusing on the noise she made,
still pleading, cursing, and all.
Very good question.
Today,, I didn't give any away. It was a good day. Difficult, but I stood my ground.
