Have We Forgotten Who We Truly Are?
If the current universal turmoil and the bleak scenario is any pointer, it is unequivocal that humans are eternal beings who have forgotten their true disposition.
Do we as humans have serious attitudinal problems?
Do we find that other people always have a problem communicating with us? Do we find ourselves wondering what’s wrong with them and why can't they just get their act together?
These attitudinal problems can lead to nothing purposeful, but only conflicts.
Conflicts can occur at many levels within an organization, team or between two individuals.
How does a conflict initially arise?
Normally, conflict occurs because there is a divergence in views or opinions on what has happened, the facts, where we are going, the aims, goals and aspirations, how we get there, what methods and measures we take to complete a course of action and ethics i.e. the values or boundaries that exist for our or the group’s behaviour indicating what is acceptable or unacceptable practice?
In many situations conflict occurs as a result of subconscious behaviour and often the individuals concerned are unaware of how they actually reached the point where they are at loggerheads with others. Often we assume that it must be the other person who has the problem and that we have not done anything ourselves to cause that conflict.
However, before we accuse another person of having the attitude problem, we must first ask ourselves if any of these apply to us. Come to think of it, we don’t even give a thought to it, do we?
Our basic grievance with regard to our education system is that it presents us with almost every concept of life in a distorted manner. For example, it teaches us that, Success is the key to Happiness. Whereas in practical reality the reverse is true, and, success is not the key to happiness; instead happiness is the key to success. If we love what we are doing, we will be happy and successful. In fact happiness is not a destination, it is a continuous journey.
The reason why there is so little happiness in our world is because of relative dependency. Happiness is not dependent on anything or anyone or found anywhere. We keep delaying our happiness until things will become just right in our lives. We think we will be happy in the future and then wonder why we are not happy now. Happiness is only possible when we are able to accept everyone as they are, at every moment, in every situation. That means and implies putting an end to judging or resisting others, complaining and blaming, criticizing and controlling and superficially competing with anyone.
The great churning of the earth’s psyche has been initiated and a new earth will be the likely fallout of this churning of the old and outdated concepts and belief systems; that have been outlived by our current time and dimension.
The world is calling for more people to step up and become leaders and grow into better contributors to society. All around, in every country, in every industry, in every organization, in every department, in every family this demand is present. And there is a place within all of us that hears this call to lead in our own way.
This blog serves to help hear and remember that call, and to leave no doubt in their answer. Let's be resolved to make ourselves and our world a better place together.
