How can I adapt to changing conditions?
I have been asking myself this question over and over again lately. I feel like everything I have ever learned from past lives, lineage, social structures, and relationships is being broken down, internalized, sorted and rebuilt in a new configuration. It is as if I am finally able to consciously choose the pieces that create my destiny.
Conversations over the community dinner table, uncensored talks about what it means to be an empowered woman—and an empowered man—with all our needs and fears, long walks studying how nature does things, and hours of research, ritual, and action to put theory into practice… the answers are there, if we believe we can find them.
Belief—in the end, it really comes down to what you believe in. If you choose to believe that everything is doom and gloom, doom and gloom it will be. Don’t get me wrong, I am well aware of the problems going on in the world, but our ability to find solutions is strictly tied to our belief that solutions are possible.
Given that I am probably the most pessimistic and critical person you know—seriously, I hide it well at times, or not—I have decided that it is time to use my biomimicry training and follow the examples of nature: focus on adaptation, be interconnected and interdependent, and fit form to function. Judgement is useful for understanding, but once I have recognized the problem, better to focus on solutions rather than dwell in the problem!
So with this in mind, how can you cultivate cooperative relationships to transform limiting beliefs and achieve more than you would individually?
