Here is something for those of us in the spiritual, personal development and transformational community to think about too. Do we need to be different? Are we competing too much? And why?
“Moderns create status differences between “those who know how” and those who Don’t. It’s the American version of class differences, but in this version you identify with the winners in life’s competition, whether you are a winner yourself or just a wannabe. Much of this attitude includes a sure, and at times contemptuous, dismissal of other viewpoints and ways of life. The IMPLICATION is that anyone who “doesn’t know how” is somehow inferior.“
