How to Grow

Alan Watts – How To Grow

Life is a pattern of immense complexity


Trying to be more aware, of the background, might then help us all to be able to understand other peoples “attitude”, better?. Sometimes even “reason” for their outspoken angry attitude, as well too ?. We need to try look past the rough-angry face-value of human-exterior, to try and fathom what it is that there might be “laying behind” this face value exterior view what we can see (via our eyes). To try to “SENSE” (as apposed to seeing with use of our eyes) what perhaps might be helping to cause OTHER PEOPLE more anger, than might otherwise not need be. Had their environment, been different than what it is ‘today”.

Could be similar, i’d hazard to guess, perhaps, to way like how some animal seem able to SENSE  an earthquakes approach (animal perhaps manage to remain more in tune with their WHOLE surrounding environment?. I’d guess dud to animal also having fart less “crap” wasting space and cluttering up their minds)

Or what?

That way we can then make far better choices ourselves too, in regard to how we go about ourselves to try and offer “others” our help and support

People are not necessarily born to become highly angry people?

We are far more interconnected than we realize . Our earthly environment plays a part. Our lives are not totally separate events.We live life “together as one” more than we understand?

We all help to create “our environment” ourselves (not like we are thrown into something, of like what, we then have absolutely no control over ourselves. That’s a “cop-out” on our own part. Irresponsible. A way to allow ourselves to feel righteous “about ourselves”, all the while we also get busy with judging others harshly)

At least that’s what i figure it seem to me Alan is perhaps on about. If i’m wrong, i’d like to learn

Once we understand this. Perhaps we can understand “attitudes” of loads of children born into poverty and family dysfunction, far better too

Our way of constantly just casting more and more people into jails. Or reactivating death penalty. And so on

Is not any long term an answer to problems. Is it?.It mainly serve to make OURSELVES  feel more comfortable. And to hold onto a mighty selfish warped sense of righteousness

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
