We all push pegs.
We’re constantly struggling to ram big fat square pegs into the consistent sized round hole without realising ‘square’ can’t actually fit in ‘round’ without chipping away, pairing down, re-shaping, compromising and losing the integral self.
What’s worse – we tend to stand by and witness each other driving huge square dowels in uncompromising round holes, encouraging all the way and chanting never to give up.
Today our job is to STOP! And ask ourselves….
4. Why do I like <cupcakes> more than I like <people>?
Again, feel free to switch out the words in brackets: You may like TV more than exercise, or bad boys/girls more than nice guys/girls, or burglary more than reading. Whatever the particulars, we all have something we like more than the some things we’re supposed to like. But forcing “virtues”—trying to like people more than cupcakes—drives us to vices that offer false freedom from oppression. Stop trying to like the things you don’t like, and many vices will disappear on their own.
