In order for anything to grow and develop, you need the proper environment. Tomatoes don't grow in Antarctica and maple trees don't grow in the ocean.
Unfortunately, we don't live in an environment that is conducive to the development of genuine mental health for the majority of the human race.
Of course, some humans will be able to do it, but for the majority of us, the soil is just not fertile - unless you know how to make it fertile.
The process of making the environment fertile for you to develop your mental health involves developing your awareness and recognizing how the deck is stacked against you.
Confusing? You bet, listen to the episode and let us explain what we mean.
Here Is What We Covered
- Like everything in the universe, your nature (the way you are) dictates what you need. For humans to survive and thrive (AKA mental health), we need to use our minds. It is precisely the human mind which is on trial in our modern culture.
- Some of us are taught to question and think as children, but as we turn into adults, if you ask the wrong questions, you are accused of being a 'conspiracy theorist' or worse. This means you can be threatened, shamed and censored (forget tolerance for those people) into thinking you're wrong. A healthy mind doesn't respond to force; it responds to reason.
- We are being taught that the group is superior to the individual and that we need to sacrifice our wants and desires for the benefit of the group. How can you have mental health when your mind (the only one you have) is placed as inferior to the "collective consciousness?"
