How To Live -27 conflicting answers and one weird conclusion - Derek Sivers - Intertwine With The World - 5 Insights

    1. You can't see your own culture when you're inside of it.

    Me: How does it feel to be immersed in water?

    Fish: What water?

    You don't see yourself. Do you think this is about someone else?

    Familiarity is the enemy of change.

    2. Plants and trees spread their seeds as far as possible.

    Spread the good news far and wide and let go of gossip and ridicule.

    Spread good ideas, good energy, and love as far as possible.

    3. This new strange place will feel wrong.

    To live a better life you must have a shift in your perspective.

    Your new drama-free world will seem strange at first as you quickly discover your old way of thinking is unsuited for this place.

    The climate is different. The people are kinder. You are more loving and caring.

    Your baggage will disintegrate in this new environment so it's best to let it go now.

    You'll have to drop your old thoughts and beliefs because they're not suited for the culture.

    Immediately, you'll feel much better, and smiling will become effortless.

    Eventually, you'll conclude there is no better way of living except giving and receiving Love.

    4. Pick a confusing or scary place that you don't understand.

    Your life begins just on the other side of your comfort zone.

    No more hacking at the branches, let's get down to the roots.

    Would you be willing to look at this situation in another way that is less stressful?

    Perhaps the thing that is confusing or scary is your pathway to freedom.

    I don't know is always a great place to start.

    5. In all cultures, avoid the madness of the crowd.

    The madness of the crowd has nothing to offer you.

    The madness of the crowd will eat you alive because you believe in quibbles.

    It requires an advanced skill set to turn chaos into calm. (It all happens in the mind)

    You have alchemist capabilities but either you don't care or don't want to use them.
