The Cycle of Life

Astraea turns 21 on 8 December 2020.

For many the 21st birthday is the threshold between childhood and adulthood, between innocence and maturity. Whatever age or ceremony marks “growing up”, people from all over the world follow a similar path of physiological development.

But emotional development can vary greatly among people in the same community, depending on situation, environment and opportunities far more than than biological programming.

Cycle of Life Reflected in Organisations

What encourages or retards emotional development? What encourages consciousness to develop? Can decay be avoided?

T he development cycle is not just seen in individuals, but also in organisations, communities, countries and the whole of humanity. This emergence of innate potential and the implications for humanity will be explored and a map of potential futures based on physiological and emotional resources shared.

What does it mean to come of age?

Is the world progressing or not?

How is tension overcome?

What does the future hold?

Impeachment – There is a problem.

There is a problem.

Trump did nothing wrong.

That’s how Mitch and friends see it.

Put yourself in their shoes and you can see with their eyes.

They all would have done the same. They would have protected their interests. Why look after other people instead of yourself, after all?

The people supporting Trump believe that people, their people, agree with them.

They are right.

Everyone who supports Trump would have done the same thing.
They would have demanded a favour (blacken the name of their enemy – Biden) when they offered charity to a stranger (aid to Ukraine).

Now, think about what’s going to happen?

Perspective Matters

(Chapter from How to Get Rich and Famous.)

How do you see yourself? How do you see others? How do you see the world?

And do you see things the same way as other people around you? Even though what you’re looking at is the same thing, we often see them differently.

Perhaps you’ve come across this optical illusion:

  

Do you see the young lady looking away, or the old lady looking across to the left? Can you see both?

Maybe what you see depends on what you’ve just been thinking about, what you expect to see or how you think about the world. This collage of the young lady, the old lady and both helps us to see the illusion.

As children we are flexible in our views. We’re working everything out. We can be duped easily because we haven’t established what’s real and what isn’t. Have you seen a baby giggle at the game of “Peekaboo!”? But by the time we’re adults we’ve got a firmer idea of what the world is like. Since we rely upon our assumption every day, our ideas become more entrenched, unless we stay open to new information and interpretation. That’s why young people and old people sometimes don’t see eye-to-eye – understandably they see the world differently.

But what about two people with similar profiles who see the world differently?  Continue reading Perspective Matters
