I just had to share this with anyone who will stop to read it. This is the First Commandment in radical terms! Thanks JS Park!

Challenge The Construct
July 9, 2013

We often buy into social constructs and normative paradigms without really thinking through to the bottom of them. Where did we learn to date and spend money and raise children and achieve success? How many layers have we added upon pure religion and intimate relationships? How many of our routine actions are merely preprogrammed distinctions that are actually detrimental to our own well-being?

Do not ignore the burning needle in your heart that knows something is wrong here. We believe more lies than we think. Do not simply fall in line with the system. Ask questions, challenge the status quo. Do not condemn others based on your singular window of isolated culture. Stand up to tribalism and tradition without disrespecting the merits therein. Think for yourself on these things. Do not simply think outside the box, but create a world that does not need them. Be grounded enough to stumble with others; be free enough to fly with them.
