Dealing with Futility

There are a class of addictions I find extremely difficult to deal with. I look around and see people destroying the environment, starting wars, overpopulating, bashing gays, polluting the air and water, using economic advantage to impoverish others, doing nothing to help hunger and disease… I explain to them what I want them to do and they ignore me. I had one big success in my life, getting gay lib going in BC in the 1970s, but nothing since even though that has been the main focus of my life. I have to remind myself that even the richest people, even the most famous actors, even the most powerful politicians, even the most dedicated suicide terrorists are not that much more successful than I am at persuading people to behave as they want. Oceans can be created, but it takes the combined efforts of trillions of drops. Every effort is both insignificant and necessary. I must trust that Gandhi knew what he was taking about when he said, Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

Brain Shaping

The mind takes the shape of whatever it rests upon — or more exactly, the brain takes the shape of whatever the mind rests upon.

~ Dr. Rick Hansen

The neuropsychologist, not to be confused with man-in-motion Rick Hansen or the politician Rick Hansen.
