In this episode we explore facets of problematic organizations and their need to transform, so pandemics and a multiplicity of other challenges can be effectively dealt with, minimizing harm to individuals and businesses. The FDA remains detrimental to widespread testing for covid19, hindering more informed decision-making and innovation (until then, masks, vitamin D, eating low-carb Primal or carnivore, and oximeters can help). Instead of top-down systems, including the typical corporate structure, we need Teal organizations, which honor self-management, holistic human functioning, and evolutionary purpose. The CCP stands in stark contrast to freedom and responsibility; the Chinese people and the rest of the world suffer from its authoritarianism. Free speech and free press, as well as questioning unjust orders, are essential for liberation from domination systems, which reflect the archaic paradigm of control, fear, and punishment. Whether or not we’re parents, we can learn to view ourselves and children as capable, dignified, and respectful beings, worthy of happiness. https://www.politico.com/interactives/2020/coronavirus-testing-by-state-chart-of-new-cases/ F.D.A.

As the pandemic continues, we are still waiting for availability of at-home testing (both molecular and serological), which will be able to shine a vital light for people to make sound decisions (instead of just following governmental orders). Throughout most of this episode, I explain aspects of my psilocybin-assisted therapeutic experiences, connecting to self and to what truly matters in life. The so-called struggles with ego represent a loss of wondrous child-self connection to love. Compassion and acceptance and empathy are the healing salve, even when the struggles appear unending due to fear, leading to control and the rest. Experiencing the entire spectrum of emotions, from utter sadness to joyful laughter can enable us to be fully alive and resilient.

From America, various aspects of the pandemic are explored, including how a free and responsible society would effectively deal with it. This contrasts with what we’ve been experiencing in terms of top-down controls and conflicting edicts in the absence of adequate testing. The FDA is a governmental organization that reflects fundamental distrust in biotech scientists, engineers, and businesspersons to do what’s needed to ensure people’s safety. “Authority” based on coercion needs to be challenged and replaced by honest and open collaboration with shared purpose. Again, we need to implement win/win, Teal-stage organizing (https://www.reinventingorganizations.com), trusting people to sense and respond in beneficial, organic, non-hierarchical ways. Psychological questions explore getting needs for fairness, respect, empathy, and emotional understanding and nourishment met, to foster a sense of secure attachment. Coming to integrative terms with our old defenses puts us on the path of healing, which enables more openness, vulnerability, and intimacy.

Did your parents deal with you fairly and justly? Did your parents resort to threats in order to control your behavior–either threats of immediate punitive action on their part, or threats in terms of long-range consequences for your life, or threats of supernatural punishments, such as going to hell? Were you praised when you performed well? Or merely criticized when you performed badly? Were your parents willing to admit it when they were wrong? Or was it against their policy to concede that they were wrong? Parenting from the Inside Out: How A Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive by Daniel J.

More about the pandemic in this shorter show, including the necessity of thorough coronavirus testing that can allow most people to resume their normal lives. Wearing masks is an important part of the prevention process, as the Asians have been demonstrating (as well as the Americans during the 1918 influenza pandemic). The questions about feeling loved and being loved in your family system relate to the development of secure attachment, so we cover highlights of a germane chapter of Parenting from the Inside Out. The ABC’s of attachment (attunement, balance, coherence) are explored. some informative coronavirus/covid19 articles:Silent Coronavirus Spreaders Could Unleash Second Wave of Disaster by Olivia Messerhttps://www.thedailybeast.com/coronavirus-silent-spreaders-poised-to-unleash-second-wave-of-disasterHere’s How Coronavirus Tests Work—and Who Offers Them by Jim Daleyhttps://www.scientificamerican.com/article/heres-how-coronavirus-tests-work-and-who-offers-them/It’s Time to Face Facts, America: Masks Work by Ferris Jabrhttps://www.wired.com/story/its-time-to-face-facts-america-masks-work/ Covid 19 Situational Assessment, Risk Landscape & Possible Solutions, Daniel Schmachtenbergerhttps://youtu.be/aX5n0DYXnUQ?t=3711 Two books by Nathaniel Branden containing the important questions about childhoodhttps://www.amazon.com/Honoring-Self-Self-Esteem-Personal-Tranformation/dp/0553268147https://www.amazon.com/Breaking-Free-Nathaniel-Branden/dp/0553265881 Question #8. Did you feel loved and valued by your parents, in the sense that you experienced yourself as a source of pleasure to them? Or did you feel unwanted, perhaps a burden? Or did you feel hated? Or did you feel you were simply an object of indifference? Parenting from the Inside Out: How A Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive by Daniel J.
