If you ever feel discouraged when looking at the behaviour of your fellow humans, here are a few things to remember:
#1 – There is a reason why people act so crazy.
Even if it doesn’t make sense to you, it does make sense to them… and that says a lot about their level of awareness!
People always make the best choices possible, given the choices they perceive to be available.
That means when somebody harms another person, or themselves, or the environment… it’s not a behavioral problem… it’s a perceptual problem! They literally can’t see any other way.
#2 – Most people didn’t grow up with good role models.
They never had a self-actualized mentor asking good questions & sharing with an open heart to guide the way.
Instead they were met with angry, insecure, scatterbrained parents & teachers who were in most cases very well-meaning, but unequipped, or under-equipped to deal with the challenges of raising emotionally healthy & positive children.
This is important to realize because it means there’s nothing inherently “wrong” or “broken” about the way people act.
It’s kind of like trying to run a super computer without the right software. If you put garbage in, then you get garbage out!
#3 – Human beings are incredibly resilient and capable of change.
Have you ever had the experience of being completely convinced about something you “knew” to be true… only to change your mind as you grow & evolve your perspective?
Probably everyone has experienced these sudden or gradual shifts in awareness, whether in small ways or more dramatic life-changing moments.
In every case, the catalyst for deep change starts with shifts in perception just like this, and reveal new choices and ways of behaving.
So if you want to make a change in the world, where do you start?
Today on the ReWilding conversations podcast, we’re talking about the important role that children play in the future of our global village.
We’re exploring how nature provides an ideal environment for developing higher awareness & perception skills in the upcoming generation of future parents, teachers, politicians, scientists, inventors & entrepreneurs.
