In this episode Joel and Antonia talk about how to move forward in the midst of disappointment around world events and other factors beyond our control.
In this podcast you’ll find:
- What do you do when things don’t work out? When the world is falling apart around you?
- As we go down this road of self-development, not everyone else is going to be in the same space we are.
- A lot of people who don’t feel they got the political result they wanted are demoralized and frustrated.
- Many are displaying a sense of grief and anger against everything.
- There is a concern that we weren’t attending to something properly so now we have the results we didn’t want.
- When we bring a general sense of negativity to everything, and we keep doing it, we end up creating the catastrophe we initially feared.
- The previous political election was lame because the opposite party refused to cooperate with anything.
- Shift the negativity to something more positive.
- Personal growth transcends dichotomous systems.
- Graves Model Podcast
- There are aspects of our personality and society that are stratified.
- Society is a macrocosm of us: a microcosm.
- Some candidates are more attractive to certain types of people.
- A big piece of why people are dissatisfied with how things went down in the recent election is because there is still a lot of in-fighting.
- When you are at a higher level of development, you have the means to remember how you were in the lower levels of development. You can take in more territory.
- A big piece you can bring to this context is the ability to meet people where they’re at.
- You can also be aware that there are individuals who are seeing things you might not be aware of.
- It’s not about being right or wrong. Someone who takes a different position may be seeing something we’re not seeing. Address them with curiosity instead of hostility.
- The World appears to be shifting away from globalization with some of the local political choices.
- It’s not the quality of people’s character. It is a false assumption that if someone disagrees with us, they are betraying some deeply fundamental flaw.
- Ask: Are they contextually right? Is this a period where their perspective is accurate? Even if their perspective would be inaccurate in another situation/context?
- Systems Thinking – there are nodes in the system that indicate whether or not a particular emergent is good or bad.
- Timelines are a major node in the system.
- The now is not the trajectory forever.
- Trajectory is not just a line where we are moving either forward or backward. Just as the space shuttle needs to make corrections to reach the moon, our society will occasionally need to make corrections.
- A single perspective is a disastrous trajectory. We need the check and balance system to keep us on the desired path.
- At no point in history has progress gone backward. It may stall out for a while, but progress continues.
- There is a lot more going on than just election results.
- Unsustainable systems usually crash. These crashes encourage corrections to help us get on the correct trajectory.
- More messaging. More space. More open to different perspectives. Instead of shutting down differing viewpoints, listen to them.
- Generational theory podcast
- Winter Season – a need to conserve resource. Seek safety.
- Winter ends
- The work you’ve done has prepared you for this moment. Show up at your best.
- This is not a time to retreat and be demoralized. Not a time to wallow.
- Become galvanized. Find ways to connect with other people.
- Put yourself in an emotionally and psychologically abundant space so that you can give back to others.
- These are the moments that can help you find your sense of empowerment.
- Regardless of your political alliance, there is a palpable sense of miscommunication right now.
- Be of service to the rest of humanity. Find a way to improve communication.
