Sitting Comfortably

Prestige, status, power, authority, class, style, legitimacy, eminence, dignity...

How often do the above words provide the motives for your actions?


Obedience...

How often does that word really control you motives?

How can we know what really motivates us, and how much control we have over our thinking and actions?

Morality, justice, freedom, rights, values, ethics, beliefs...

Much of my own work aims to improve understanding between people. Over the years, I have found that many people are afraid even to learn more about themselves, and the facts about their own existence.

I hope that my four Via blogs go some way towards making the process of deeper understanding a more comfortable experience for everyone.
