Less closed-minded embrace of ridiculous New Agey beliefs and other superstitions and less phony snake-oil practitioners ripping off their brothers and sisters. No more pyramid schemes like the noxious "Women's Wisdom Circle" ripping off our community! Increased understanding of and commitment to critical thinking, which would include more honesty and open-mindedness.
Honest self-awareness about one's real feelings and beliefs. No more kidding oneself or being in denial about what we really feel and think and do.
I think my personality is more powerful and influential than I tend to think it is, and that some people feel threatened by this and hurt or oppose me in various ways as a result.
Formerly something of a New Agey paranormalist, eventually I opened my mind and heart enough to become a skeptical atheist rationalist. I believe we're all One and honest rationalism is the key to a more peaceful, free, just & sustainable world.
