Now imagine them growing up in this world,
with all of the negative and positive forces, conditioning, and influences that they will encounter bearing down on them.
You can immediately see that these influences
are what shaped this person
into who he or she is today,
and that they react to the world mainly
in DEFENSE MODE.
Think about it.
They just don't know any better.
They're still asleep
Remember that as soon as a person
becomes aware of these patterns,
they automatically begin to shift for the better.
This is true for all of us.
Just as you unconsciously have
from time to time
These "knee jerk" reactions are
learned behavior and they can be changed
for the better.
