Challenge Our Selves

The coffee shop is closed, and since some regulars have been coming, I want to up the ante so to write.

We will meet at the mall (Main entrance on Central), because there are humans there! Human improvement is all about challenging what we are used to. What we are used to makes us feel safe, however that subconscious or automated perception of safety isn't fair, and it isn't beneficial. Our normal, everyday routine and our default, unquestioned assumptions need to be confronted (by us) if we ever want to move past them.

Our circumstances (lives) are different, but our humanity is the same at our core, so we are all afraid of not 'feeling' comfortable. We all have that fear, and it translates in to different effects, whether it's depression, anger, violence, anxiety, pride, greed, conceit, vanity, bigotry, laziness, or a number of other things.

Confronting this desire to be comfortable/ fear of being uncomfortable is INCREDIBLY TOUGH- as tough as it gets in fact- however, it's also the only way to improve as a person... 'Darn conflicting humanity you!'

The point of all this is that I want to offer the opportunity to really challenge our actions and what we are used to. Being around other people gives us an opportunity to confront what we want/fear subconsciously. I can't read minds. And I can't change anyone but me. But if you really want to improve your humanity, you'll deal with what's holding you back.

    I'll be at the main entrance on Central. It's been newly remodeled and you can't miss it. It's just across from the Americana entrance.
