Show Notes:

Use of aggression to solve problems

The war in Ukraine reveals our unhealthy conditioning about aggression, labeling, and focusing on differences. Dr. Jordan uses some insightful stories to raise points about why we use aggression to solve our problems, why labels can be so damaging, and the effect of the war on children.

Transcend your conditioning

There are many things we can do to shift out of our conditioning to change our world view.

Become aware of your conditioning and work at transcending it to a higher level of behavior and consciousness.

Focus on what we have in common

Focus more on our commonalities than our differences.

Treat others as they deserve to be treated, with kindness and compassion and understanding vs judgments and hatred.

African concept of Ubuntu

Understand the African concept of ubuntu as described by Archbishop Desmond Tutu: Ubuntu is the essence of being a person. It means that we are people through other people. We cannot be fully human alone. We are made for interdependence; we are made for family. When you have ubuntu, you embrace others.
