Excited to have as my guest host, Victoria James, founder of Mindflowers, in the studio with us to talk about self-importance and how mastering it will boost your authentic happiness by a factor of 10.
I’m slowing beginning to re-emerge from my wounded cocoon. Mobility in my right hand is edging along nicely, range of motion increasing each day since my release from the day ward.
Of course I want to charge ahead like a mad bull, but I’ve purposefully kept the breaks on to allow this old body time to heal. The 6 days of rest and recuperation has actually healed a couple of other nagging problems like my knee (ha, they gave me some good drugs man, healed everything ?).
I’ll wait until I get the official all clear before I go hog wild again though.
I reject conformity, yet I conform every day. How can you resist the culture of conformity that we are born into? I’d even go so far as to say our conformity starts even before we exit the womb, and doesn’t stop until the day we die. And if all of the Holy books are right, it appears we’ll be conforming well into the afterlife! Maybe conformity is the price we pay to have an ordered society, one which on the surface, we are free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.
I’m not convinced that conformity is good for us though. It feels like thinly veiled slavery to me.
