1 thought on “We’re Hiring…”

  1. “Go on sir go on,
    the difficulties you meet,
    will resolve themselves,
    as you advance.
    Proceed and light will dawn.”

    “If you can do, or dream you can, do it now.
    For boldness has magic,
    genius and power.”

    I let go of the outcome
    as I speak my truth
    I’m going to say what I think
    As stupid as I am, biased as I am, ignorant as I am.
    I’m going to state what I think, as clearly as I can.

    Nothing brings a better world into being
    than the stated truth.,
    as one knows it.

    Free speech is the freedom to make mistakes so TRUE speech can develop through stumbling around with part ideas and being a fool manifesting biases.

    The free expression of all points of view is the messy way for a greater truth to emerge.

    My single mode of thought is not the whole. The whole is not contained in my single conception.
    All sides and not my one sided stand point.

    How to embrace a diversity of ideas?

    Through initiatives like this 🙂

    Yay thanks Pete
