Dogma is akin to Habits and Routines. It is a habituated way of thinking passed down from one generation to the next. You’ve heard the expression, “Most people are sheep.” Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely not interested in getting lead to slaughter.
Case in point: Our current economic crisis can be related directly to people acting as sheep, not standing up to what they know is wrong, not bucking the system. Our two-party political system is broken, folks. The only way we’re going to get out of this one is to THINK DIFFERENTLY, to work as a team, to grow up and stop blaming each other, to stop acting like sheep.
I loved Suze Ormand’s comment (I never could stand the woman!) She said, she’s glad the crisis happened because now people will realize they can’t live on borrowed money.
WRONG! Guess again, Suzie Girl. Most people are sheep. That’s like saying: Boy, I’m sure glad that two-year-old got sick, because now she’ll eat better food. Who is in charge of feeding the two-year-old?
The sheep do what they do because the shepherds are living on borrowed money. The thinking that needs to change is at the TOP, not in the sheep herd. The so-called leaders of this country need to get out of greed mode and realize that we are all in this together. We live in an interconnected Universe.
More on this and how you can help fix it in the next post. For now, your technique to practice is to examine your thoughts for an entire day and ask yourself: Am I thinking like a sheep or a shepherd?
