Principles For Redicovering Joy And Peace

Give yourself permission to change your mind as often as needed

Opinions are celebrated like capitalism in our culture and not buying in can feel socially akward. We often associate with networks and people who have similar opinions or even worse we form opinions on superficial impressions rather than investing time and energy and thought into forming true connections. If we don't learn how to form our own world view we run the risk of believing in borrowed ideas which lack substance or which ultimately do not reflect what we want from our life. In a culture where the "answer" is just a few taps away, saying "I don't know" can feel like an embarrassment. The reward of allowing uncertainty to exist in any situation means you have opened yourself up to real learning. More importantly you leave the window open for changing your mind and dropping the rhetoric of culture, class, color and labels in general. In short not knowing or not needing to have an opinion is one of the best ways to stay curious...it also tends to destabilize and quiet the story tellers and gossip mangers. Giving yourself permission to change your mind is often one of the first steps we take in quieting the inner critic and seeing life for what it is. There is freedom in clarity, curiosity and experimentation. JohnsArt
