My Way is Mine — Your Way is Yours — Is There Common Ground?

Just because my way is mine doesn’t mean we can’t find some common ground (within reason).

Being responsible and accountable for ourselves

We live in a society that loves blame. There is a love affair with taking ZERO responsibility for anything and everything.

My way is mine, your way yours, common ground

There has been a lot of talk about finding common ground in politics recently. It’s a rather interesting message — particularly as it comes from a place of utter bullshit.

Empowered people are in control

One of the best ways to control the lives of other people is to tell them they are incapable of doing it themselves. Convince them that your way, your plan, is the only salvation available. Otherwise, they’ll suffer. And NOBODY wants to suffer.

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.”

Often, our so-called leaders want you wholly focused on your fear of suffering. That way, you’ll be disempowered and willing to cede control of your life to them.

My way is mine and your way is yours

The point of all this is that we live in an abundant Universe. Ergo, there is more than enough room, resources, potential, opportunities, and whatnot for both our paths. For ALL our paths, in truth.
