Your Brain Is Growing From All That Thinking - Tips
Your brain is growing from all that
Thanks for the comments on this
link about Africa or Togo.
It-s obvious that you are using your time in Africa to think. Your
recent blogs are very thoughful and therefore are making me think. You have an
interesting concept about the consumer goods covering our tribal natures.
When you were talking about the primitive tribe behaviors, not love but need,
and pushing out the one that does not reciprocate your need. My first
thought was, how complex is our world that those primitive cultures still exist
along side say New York city or Paris. Moderm cultures with their
intricate manners and mores. The contrast between those Africa stories and
for example highly intelligent and sophisticated stories such as Theroux-s
novels or Woody Allen-s movies. Then I remembered what those works were
about, serial wives, greed, social backstabbing, sucking up to the
boss? Is it really that different?
I think to understand our shadows and then accept they exist is the first
stop to understanding about people. I have unfortunately seen my shadow and dark
side to closely and now can appreciate my light side.
Personally, I have the most fun being more primitive, however not as
primitive enough to watch a soap opera.
