Instead of teaching our children WHAT to think, let's teach them HOW to think! We have become really good at teaching (through modeling) the content of our culture to our children. Be polite and say thanks, even if you don't mean it. Otherwise, to speak the truth of your experience (not-thankful) is to be considered rude. So... we teach our children to be insincere and live in contradictory internal states so they don't offend another. We teach them to be dishonest so they can manage an external appearance labeled "polite" and "good". We teach them to shun their truth so they do not have to face the shame imposed on them by authority. In essence, we teach our children that shunning themselves is better than living in fear of being shamed by another. I can't help but wonder ....what is the intelligence of that?! What is the fucking point?! How can we expect our children to grow up to be sincere inside themselves if we are teaching them to not be?! ...and all this for the sake of optics, for the sake of external approval, for the sake of ...hopefully fitting in.
In being responsible toward my Self (my calling, my being) I am carefree. Because the responsibility I integrate into my life is that of my choosing...and I'd have it no other way. What I'm talking about here is an internally referenced source of responsibility.
In living my life through the WEL-Systems® paradigm I have discovered the immensity of my power. By engaging this process, my Life has transformed. From the conversations I am having, to the people I befriend, to the way I interpret Life: it has all transformed. Fundamental to all this has been the transformation of my perception of what a human being is; what consciousness is; what Life is. I have no sense of any complete "answers", and yet I notice myself continuously asking bigger and bigger questions.
The good, the bad, and the ugly is ALL my creation.
