The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Attached to being right

What happens if you aren’t right?

Sure, it depends on the situation. But really?

You can act in the belief that it’s important to be right to be able to move ahead.

When are you going to act then?

Another option is to have an idea that could work out and test if it works.

The difference is that the essential ingredient, in this case, is curiosity. It’s seeking to find what’s working and what’s not working.

There are numerous moments in life in which we’ve been taught to be right. At school it was about delivering the right answer, succeeding in the test. At home, it was about following the rules and behave correctly. Religion and laws have shown us the value of following the right path.

What all of these situations have in common is, that they point to one answer, the one that is supposed to be the right one.

We’ve been brainwashed to search for that right answer.

We are attached to it, as knowing the right answer gives a feeling of security, provides us recognition, helps us to be an insider.

What we missed is that without the right answer the search for security, recognition and the wish to be an insider remains without an answer.

We could have learned to search for the answer which is right for us.
