Sometimes It's OK to Change Our Minds - 2gno.me

Many times, especially right before elections, we hear accusations of a candidate being a “flip-flopper” or being “wishy-washy”, which basically means someone held a certain position on an issue and then changed his or her position later. This is typically perceived as a weakness or flaw in character.  There are times, however, when it’s all right to change our minds.

This is not to say that it’s a good thing to be consistently indecisive, but there are benefits to being open-minded enough to admit when we’ve made a mistake or have discovered information that has a direct ...

This I encourage. Take ample time for the things that seem simple. Check out the edges for those salient details, imperfections, observations that are sure to make your sentiments bloom. Fly below the clouds. Peer deep through the center and keep an ear for the sound of beauty.

Despite what you’ve been told, life is a miracle.

Ask the protozoa that inhabit our thoughts.

Admire, for instance, the tambourine-type quality held in the slick and durable lining of our billionth vital cell.

Because of these things we might leave nothing to chance, yet our greatest fears become of it ...

awareness gain self-knowledge get to know yourself perception personality

I heard the author David Eagleman on the radio. He said something about possessing multiple selves engaged in creating a type of barter-narrative that results in the outward projection that actually ends up being "the self", or what we think we know of it.

The trick here may be to realize that not any one of us is really one person. We're all multiples. In a matter of minutes you can walk from an office space to a playground, where on one end you'll consider yourself underdressed and under-educated and maybe even undervalued... to the other end where ...

In a task-oriented world, take this as a task:

Do nothing.

Does this scare you? Do you understand the concept?

By "do nothing", we don't mean "avoid work" or "watch TV" or "go for a long drive". The intent here is to sit in a quiet place and allow your mind to wander. Work toward nothing. Be free of obligation. Notice what pops up, but do not judge. Let it be what it is and freely move to the next thing, whether it's related to the previous thought or not. Don't judge, just realize, appreciate and move ...

awareness gain self-knowledge perception personality

In the sepia tone mornings or grey scale evenings your eyes can deceive. This limited light can lack a depth of understanding, for the eye and for the mind. For instance, a cabinet against a pulled curtain can look like a human figure, and a laundry basket held in a half light can appear as an unwanted animal, wild or not.

The thing to understand is that this can be true too in the broad light of day, if to a lesser extent.

So remain wary of falling victim to the tricks of a single sense. Full awareness ALWAYS involves ...

A recent webinar invitation from Social Media Today nicely summarized the breadth of fast-moving change:

“ The self-guided knowledge available online lights the path to many offline adventures and projects. What we do and absorb online influences the way we eat, make purchase decisions, play, find friends and mates to play with and/or to marry. ”

Change is unavoidable, so people are making technology part of their routine. It's reasonable to expect a shift from one-way sharing of pictures, recipes and links to a bi-directional conversation that offers a chance to learn back from the community in a personal and ...
