Today Matt spoke to us on the topic of "Take the Other to Lunch." He started off by observing that we have multiple personalities within us, but few deal with integrating them very well. Sometimes we feel the opposition of both the warrior and the mystic. Few have integrated the warrior and the mystic, Nelson Mandela, MLK and Gandhi come to mind.
In recent times, we have started demonizing those who are opposite. The media thrives on doing that because it drives more revenue. But we don't have to do that.
Take an opposite to lunch.
You don't have to pick one with opposition principles that make smoke come out your ears, but pick someone who is at the "other" fringe of the group you already know. Be conversational. Ask questions. Ask about their experiences. Drop the pret that you know it all.
