2020, OPMT 600 Lesson 1 Lesson 1 May your Spirituality fill you with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that you live deep in your heart. May your Spirituality fill you with anger at injustice, oppressions, and exploitation of people and the earth so that you will work for justice, equity and peace. May your Spirituality fill you with tears to shed for those who suffer so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy. May your Spirituality fill you with the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world, so that you will do the things which others say cannot be. Franciscan origins Know Thy Self was the primary advice given by the Oracle at Delphi. Socrates argued that he knew more than the elders in Greece because He Knew he didn't Know. While the elders didn't know, they didn't know. Remember the article on "Teaching smart people is hard;" success can often breed arrogance. This arrogance leads to Dogmatic Thinking. In Today's hectic world, how often do you take time to reflect on your values, how you think, how you learn and how you make decision. Your values, Thinking, Learning and Belief systems will control your decisions. We believe that your Decisions Made Roads Taken are the most important actions in your Life's Journey as your decision reveal and result in who you are and what you stand for. There are no right answers to these questions, just talk about what you believe. DON'T PRESENT ANSWERS THAT YOU FEEL I WANT TO HEAR. Regarding the problems where the Thinker is shown, I want you to practice going deeper in Your Thinking in particular developing your Systems Thinking, do not consult your smart phone, computer, neighbor etc. Just sit and reflect and show your thoughts. You in a sense are presenting a Thesis, I will have a Dialectic with you and present an AntiThesis, you will then decide if you believe there are good points in both your Thesis and my AntiThesis for you to create a Synthesis, your New Thesis.
