self1981 In psychology, as I understand it, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.

I think humans strive for internal consistency. An individual who experiences inconsistency (dissonance) tends to become psychologically uncomfortable, and is motivated to try to reduce this dissonance—as well as actively avoid situations and information likely to increase it. But that seems like a missed opportunity. Developedment might be the byproduct of stress, friction, pain, when we allow ourselves to be emerced in it...joy, enlightenment, ease too I guess. Anyway the first step seems to be to invite ideas that challenge the long standing tenants of your mind and allow them; on merit to replace them or prove their value to you. The ideas we hold define us, they are the fabric of our being, weaving our opinions, informing our actions. Contradiction a good thing. They say that every 7 years we replace cells yet there are ideas that we've inherited through socialization, generations old, that we accept unchallenged.

self1981 New favorite. #TopCubans: excellent rather large girthed (Camron voice pause) cigar which was first showcased at the Habanos Festival 2014! A whopping 58 gauge, with nutty overtones throughout the smoke. Classic Cohiba consistency in the smoke with plenty of spice at the end to keep you interested for the duration. A great one for aging potential. Thanks for the heads up @derekdelboy. Safe travels champ. 3mon

self1981 The righteous path is not without challenges, she perceivers, fights and overcomes. I'm reminded of the Kemite concept of maat (the hearts of the dead were said to be weighed against a single "Feather of Ma'at". This is why hearts were left in Egyptian mummies while their other organs were removed, as the heart was seen as part of the Egyptian soul. If the heart was found to be lighter or equal in weight to the feather of Maat, they had led a virtuous life and would go on to Aaru.)
Anyway salute to mah...
