Yes, you read correctly, what If this would reduce your Stress levels, create Reform & Rebuild Communities, would you embrace it?
To get to the point of it becoming simpler to reform communities and innovate, we have to have those conversations no one wants to have!
It is about what we know with every ounce of our being, what is missing in society.
It is what would benefit and do need, as a common denominator, or 2, that unites, vs divides?
Reality, We appear to be flailing for new directions, seeking THE stable place to belong, having a voice, making an impact, and yet, the struggle to adapt to change plus at the same time survive economically in the new world, plus hold on to the Values that give us stability at root level, along with “uncertainty is the new certainty, cdb” eludes many, not dissimilar to a hope of being sweet 16 forever!
What we already have an abundance in access to, is strangely, not on the top of our focussed stress. It is what has been written about and evidence collected since 3rd Millenium BC. Dare I venture to the territory which accuses some of us(many of us) as humans with some behaviour of being no more than animals, without engaging fully and knowlingly, our own prefrontal cortex?
You will find, possibly too, the similar seeds in thoughts of “HAVE we regressed”?
When you read these excerpts from 3rd Millenium BC right through to 18th century, (from Wikipedia), you might agree!
“In the 3rd millennium BC, Ptahhotep wrote The Maxims of Ptahhotep. The Maxims were conformist precepts extolling such civil virtues as truthfulness, self-control and kindness towards one’s fellow beings. Learning by listening to everybody and knowing that human knowledge is never perfect are a leitmotif. Avoiding open conflict wherever possible should not be considered weakness. Stress is placed on the pursuit of justice, although it is conceded that it is a god’s command that prevails in the end. Some of the maxims refer to one’s behaviour when in the presence of the great, how to choose the right master and how to serve him. Others teach the correct way to lead through openness and kindness. Greed is the base of all evil and should be guarded against, while generosity towards family and friends is deemed praiseworthy.
The Maxims ofPtahhotep –The Maxims ofPtahhotep or Instructionof Ptahhotep is an ancient Egyptian literary composition basedon the Vizier Ptahhotep’s wisdom and experiences.The Instructions were composed by the Vizier Ptahhotep,during the rule of King Izezi ofthe Fifth Dynasty.Thetext was discovered in Thebes in1847 by Egyptologist M. Prisse d’Avennes. TheInstructions of Ptahhotep are called wisdomliterature, specifically under the genre of Instructions that teachsomething.
Wisdom literature is a genre of literature common in the ancient Near East. It consists of statements by sages and wise men that offer teachings about divinity and virtue. Although this genre uses techniques of traditional oral story-telling, it was disseminated in written form.
Confucius (551–479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher whose philosophy emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity.
Baldassare Castiglione (Italian: [baldasˈsaːre kastiʎˈʎoːne]; December 6, 1478 – February 2, 1529), count of Casatico, was an Italian courtier, diplomat, soldier and a prominent Renaissance author, who is probably most famous for his authorship of The Book of the Courtier. The work was an example of a courtesy book, dealing with questions of the etiquette and morality of the courtier, and was very influential in 16th century European court circles.
Louis XIV (1638–1718) “transformed a royal hunting lodge in Versailles, a village 25 miles southwest of the capital, into one of the largest palaces in the world, officially moving his court and government there in 1682. It was against this awe-inspiring backdrop that Louis tamed the nobility and impressed foreign dignitaries, using entertainment, ceremony and a highly codified system of etiquette to assert his supremacy.”” Wikipedia
Food for thought – How different would our world be, if we introduced some of these again, with universal consciousness @ home, @government and all leadership levels?
Whatis really missing in our current Values – Etiquette, Change Endurance, a willingness to Embrace Disruption, and my absolute ULTIMATE thorn, a necessary Corporate,Community and family Culture reboot!
What would you say, to agree to reintroduce the old to new, to add to education systems,to restore real connections, where connection is done from the truth andstillness within the peace of heart will give us a chance to survive, slow downand catch our breath, in anticipation of the next wave of economic and human reform?
Bottom line, it is deep, yet super simple! What is really missing – is real, authentic Connection to all. To Restore it with mindful consciousness, and we restore humanity to a state of consideration and compassion. What chance do you think we would have of shaping the world as a better place to be in then?
Ask me how!
Till the next time!
