Drivers of Change: a 2022 update

Several of my blogs have mentioned the drivers of Change, which govern everything around us. Late April 2018, I published my initial blog Drivers of Change, which included a rather complex diagram. I suppose I was still arranging my thoughts. Today, I present a much simpler diagram. Perhaps, the single most important item in my diagram is the Blueprint of our...

The road to self-love or philautia

Last Thursday morning, Dutch band Rondé was promoting their new single: I'm ready to love myself (see song below). The band's singer was talking about her transformation to self-love (in Greek: philautia). Before, she did not believe in the healing nature of loving yourself. How do you get there?

A video named ‘obstinate’ by someone who calls himself...

The diagram below includes nearly all concepts of myself and of others (ie, Faith-Hope-Love, Sumerian, Zoroastrianism). This is the result. My 2021 Conceptual Framework started with the 7 Belief systems (ie, 2015...

We believe our doubts and we doubt our beliefs

While looking for articles on doubt in animals, I stumbled upon this "famous saying of 'we believe our doubts and we doubt our beliefs' in the corporate world" (source). It was new to me. Some argue the opposite: "Doubt Your Doubts and Believe Your Beliefs" (source-1, source-2). I doubt (sic!) that both are valid. I believe in this quote by Richard P. Feynman...
