Three interesting quotes from author and futurist Alvin Toffler that I wholeheartedly agree with:
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn ”
“You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction”
Although I didn’t know about the work of Alvin Toffler at the time, the Consciousness Training course I designed and the “Magical Moments” book that I’ve written include these three important elements: learning to create change; learning how to unlearn and relearn; choosing an overarching vision for life and setting large and small goals to stretch toward that vision.
I think it’s interesting that we KNOW that we are and must be changing, while change is something that some people fear the most. Of course there are various reasons for fear of change, depending on our upbringing and environment. It feels easiest and safest for many to continue doing what they are used to, no matter how painful. Some don’t see any point in changing, since what they are used to is OK. Others dare to dive into change even when others don’t.
Beliefs are something that we once learned. We can become stuck in belief that it takes a long time to change things, that it is difficult to change and that some things cannot be changed. Maintaining that belief only allows us to achieve adjustments, not change, and our expectation is confirmed – change is then almost impossible and we don’t progress. We need to unlearn beliefs that limit us and stop our progress.
Then we need to relearn that it is possible to change, and we need to learn to be willing to change. Otherwise we get stuck and become what Toffler said were “the illiterates of the 21st century.”
Almost everyone wants change, but we look the other way the moment we must acknowledge that my life, as it is, contributes to limiting development in society. New competence for change is necessary, and change is a process that must begin. Each and every one of us is responsible for positive as well as negative developments that we see around us, although we cannot quite understand that as yet. This competence for change can be quickly learned at a Unique Mind ESP course that takes 20 hours during two days using techniques that have been documented by research, or working independently with the “Magical Moments” book.
A change in consciousness is underway in our world, and Toffler’s quotes will take on new importance.
I recommend that you use some time to think about this. Where are you in relation to change? Have you understood that you, with your thoughts, words, actions and attitudes, influence all that is around you? It is interesting to reflect about and make changes, because this leads to new openings, opportunities and growth. Achieving small goals on the way to large goals and life visions gives more life to life itself!
