Changing Your No to Yes

One of the great misunderstandings of our moment is that so many people equate being against everything with being for something. Nothing could be further from the truth. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of treachery, violence, and manipulation to be against in this world.

We all have our fist-shaking moments, as we watch events unfold in ways that debase truth, justice, and true human freedom. Still, being against is not enough.

Charting a brand new course for human destiny requires more than anger and the lazy thinking that declares everything is a lie. Changing the dynamic requires inspired, innovative thinking at levels beyond what has gone before. It requires us to truly use the full potential of our minds. It demands that we see a bigger picture until that picture grows too small and then to invent a yet bigger picture.

The for-against push and pull is part of the system keeping us trapped and mired in the gravity of the past. It's precisely what makes us malleable to manipulation by events, the news, the government, and the forces who wish humankind ill.

Shake your fist if you must, but don’t forget to work your mind and move your hands and feet toward a bigger future. Creative visions you can say YES to.

Keep seeking, my friends!
