Let Go

Making people happy makes people happy-

What exactly is the importance of having a open mind?

Personal and spiritual growth begins with a healthy dose of open-mindedness, that’s the importance. At what age did you stop asking “why”?

For the parents reading this morning, when the little ones ask “why” … Like a billion times before lunch?  It gets old really quick!  We beg of them to stop.  However, and curse us if you may:  Asking “why” should never go away, no matter how cantankerous and old we become.

There is always room for more understanding in our lives.  If dudes want to wear skinny jeans and fedoras while shopping at Whole Foods?  Totally cool … If we stay narrow-minded with the belief that what we know is the divine truth? We end up greeting any and all differing views as a falsehood.   Feel like ruining a relationship real quick?  Stop asking “why” and become less understanding.  We triple dog dare you to try this?!?

There is a looming set of clouds full of ” ignorance” forming on the far horizon.   The ingredients for a  perfect storm are all around us:  Total immersion in social media, failure to notice the changing  environment, lack of empathy towards others, relying on facts and not deep-rooted knowledge.  Are we forgetting anything?

There is hope young Padawan(s)  One way we as a whole can rid ourselves of this storm is to allow the light of higher awareness to shine down warmly upon us:  Ask “why” and practice becoming more open-minded.  Is Mark Sanchez (aka Buttfumble) the best QB in the NFL … Maybe – Maybe not?!?  Let’s discuss this further.


*Better come strong with your QB argument!  Just saying.*

The Workout-

A little homework is in order before we carry on with The Workout today.  Hey, save the comments for after class … Look up these two words using your Google Machine:  Techne and Episteme

What, you might be asking are these two dreadful little words doing here this morning?

Is your workout based on Techne (craft, experience and know how) … Or, are you trying to impress your friends with Episteme (book knowledge and showing off the title/certifications/badassness of your program).  So on that note:

A nice flowing Warm Up consisting of Crane Pose play and breathing control.  Followed by:

10 KB Perfect Push Ups

10 One Arm KB Bent Over Rows (alternate arms –  load)

10 Step(s) High Knee Walk (each foot – shoes off – walking on clouds)



Techne or Episteme?  Why really?  I’m trying to be open-minded about all of this?  Be well this weekend and please take care!

    Open mindedness is the key to sanity. 🙂 All I have to say about the dog is “Oh My!” 🙂

    I totally couldn’t find how to comment this morning. I know every day is of equal time but man it feels like it’s been a long day!

    Anyway, to emphasize the “why” in relationships: Last night my husband and I were watching the Sugar Bowl and I asked him some random “why” question. He paused the game (we’re super fancy with a DVR.), looked at me and said “That’s why I love you. You ask questions about things that I never…ever…EVER notice.”

      This is great! Here’s why: You have yourself a keeper in your hubby dude and him in you! He paused the game +1, didn’t give you the “yup” honey head nod +1 and both you had a nice moment together, sweet.

      +1 to you for watching the Sugar Bowl 😉

      I hope the both of you have a great weekend!!!

    it is good to be open minded… hope everything doesn’t leak out! have a good weekend! 🙂

  4. Great post; I think I still drive people crazy because I ask way more questions than I ever provide answers. Honestly, that is a lot of the reason I write. I’ve always been a little rebellious and writing is my way of trying to make sense of the world.

    • CultFit says:

      I completely agree with you in regards to writing and trying to make sense of the world. The great post bit is up for debate. 😉
      I hope you and your family have a great weekend.
