I think therefore I am.
Seemingly, what irreparable harm he has done Life this fool of philosopher – which otherwise is said to have been quite a likeable person – for everything, and I mean everything in today’s society, is directly connected to his mad assertion.
“Remember, people like Descartes”, says Joakim,
“they think this faulty contention - cogito ergo sum -, is deep and mystically true.
I mean, its their only argument for their imagined identity.
Most likely, it would be more appropriate to say ‘I sneeze, therefore I am’ …
It makes more sense, doesn´t it…?”

This is a story told by Osho.
Wilhelm Pauli was prevailed upon to speak about the new ideas to the audience which also included Niels Bohr. He spoke for an hour, and then there was a general discussion during which he was criticized rather sharply by the other scientists.
Finally, Niels Bohr was called on to make a speech summing up the argument. “We are all agreed,” he said, “that your theory is crazy, Pauli. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct.
My own feeling is that it is not crazy enough.”

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong.
When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”

Our earth is crying. People “hear” but not heed.
Against all evidence, common man is unwilling to see, to admit the most obvious.
God, soul, spirit…? These are mere senseless words for the vast majority…
The only thing they focus on is their stubborn ignorance and blind greed…
Everybody reverently speaks about how unsustainable our present life-style is,
yet the result is null – just daft and perverted bunkum…
How can each of us make a pragmatically sustainable difference?

No one can truly fully understand anything and I agree that Change is an empty word but the essence of the word contains invaluable fortune. As Gandhi said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world’.
When? Where and How?
These are the questions usually left to be answered but never posed. The when and where are simple, it’s here and now as you mentioned on one of your other posts, but in developing the answer on how, you are granted great wisdom. Change is an empty word for those who do nothing but it’s a sense of growth and accomplishment for those who do. Agree or disagree?
You see, once you are famished, you won´t ask HOW you are supposed to eat – you will simply eat.
If your house is on fire, you won´t stay in watching TV pretending all is well – as the majority of people do – but run away immediately.
So with “change” – if you see that something urgently needs to be changed, that inner urge will naturally find a concrete way.
It´s a fact:
Change means transformation. Transformation doesn´t happen through grandiloquent words, but through appropriate action. Either we change, or we will face utterly dire consequences, which we are already witnessing.
Most humans refuse to see the impending danger of their mendacious and obsolete outlook on life, constantly indulging in the inertia of fleeing the real problem.
