Making Mistakes: Where has the Spontaneity Gone?

July 31, 2014,

The question applies to all of us, including our leaders and people of influence who continue to make choices which bring suffering, and which perpetuate conflict. Look at our world now, as the Middle East shakes under an onslaught of gunfire, European union is disintegrating with suspicion and factional division, and countries default on their debts as the global debt mounts, impossibly. Examples of mistakes - so often the same mistakes repackaged again and again, generation after generation -  are everywhere, for we have lost the ability to be spontaneous. We think too much.

They do not think or create a plan, and they do not make mistakes: they live their lives according to an inner knowing and a genetic understanding, and they live their life in joy for as long as they have that life. People, on the other hand, have lost the spontaneity that is the path to peace, relying on mental calculation and the instructions of others, and depending on signals and machines for their sense of well-being and security, for their understanding and their actions. Imagine what your life would be like without computers, phones, media, money, government, council services, health systems and bureaucrats telling you what to do? Some people would manage, many would not, and a few would thrive. We learn from our mistakes, but so often we forget the lesson and do the same thing again and again, locked in to a system that controls and disempowers, stopping the opportunity for spontaneity before it has begun – and we allow it, because life seems easier that way. If only we could learn to learn from the wisdom of nature.   [byline]]]>

  1. In Native American/First Nations medicine, it is taught that there are four bodies that humans possess: a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical body. Ponder what one's emotional body draws to itself until one's spiritual body is invoked.
