Complaining keeps us locked in negativity, right? I mean, think about it. Who wants to hang out with someone who complains all the time? No one. So why complain even to yourself? This is the source from which self-disgust, self-hatred, and self-sabotage springs—and the ego loves it, this self-imposed separation.
If we are able to maintain this practice [of not complaining] the results are profound. When we complain, what we are doing is telling a story to ourselves in our minds and then verbally telling others about our personal response to what is taking place in our lives. The story centers on how an event affects ‘me.’ In an instant, we are able to see that we have bought into the validity of our thoughts and opinions and we want to broadcast them.
We have so many different people on this earth and each having their own opinions and views, makes us special and interesting. I have been trying to understand every distortion, whether it be a political, religious or cultural just to name a few. This choice I have made has lead me to learn more about myself and why I think the way I do.
I watch YouTube, TedTalks and read as much as can to gain knowledge of different opinions on life.
When I see post on sites with comments that are negative and argumentative, I wonder how are we to understand each other if we can not accept another person view or opinion. We should be able to discuss and debate all opinions not condemn them. Years ago when someone said the world is round they were criticized as being a heretic for not being a part of the larger majority of people believing the world was flat. If we would have listened our understanding of the earth would be know more advanced.
The enquistance was a part of our history that put us back 100s of years. The church was against science and the dogma of religious beliefs set us back. Let us not let other dogmas do the same today.
We have a people who love football, they go to games with friends and family. Groups get together and have football parties but when someone likes a team other than the majority in that group we sometimes turn a fun event into arguments.
I am updating this currently but the image was very important to share for me.
