All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sandbox at nursery school. These are the things I learned.
Share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don’t take things that aren’t yours. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
And then remember the Dick and Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all- LOOK. Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality Nd sane living.
Take any of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or your government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if all - the whole world- had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.
And it is still true, no matter how old you are - when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.” —Robert Fulghum
Control is an illusion, an addiction, a compulsion that gives you a false sense of safety. When you get honest, you realize that your attempts to control the thoughts and actions of others is really a disguise for fear.
- Do you withhold your feelings and your true motives to control outcomes?
- Do you tell the truth about your job, finances and relationships?
- Do you trust your co-workers, family or friends?
- Do you trust yourself?
- Do you lie or withhold the truth from others?
- Do you have secrets in your friendships and relationships?
- Do you manipulate or recast the facts?
- Do you control others by being aggressive? Do you throw fits of anger?
- Do you refuse to talk?
Do you disguise control with phrases like “I’m only concerned for your well-being” or “I was only thinking of you?
These are dysfuntional roles and behaviors of control.
Honesty and letting go of control of others is key to your health and having healthy relationships.
Control is an illusion. Let go. Be happy. Be free.
Peace and love.
