mirror neurons & the need for role models




according to this research, the massive jump in human evolution is through the development of mirror neurons...now these same mirror neurons could be the cause of our demise if we have nothing worthwhile to imitate...

i posted this recently on my facebook "there is defragmentation everywhere, social, financial, ethical...where are our saviours, our role models, our teachers to show the way ahead...so few, so far between..."

lack of physical positive role models...leaves us with no-one to imitate...causing a demise in all sorts of values...i can't think of many places where you can find great role models any more, martial arts, buddhist societies, religion, yoga, qi gong are some potentials...great people to immitate are hard to find, thats why it pays to hunt them down and associate with them whereever you can find them. Any organisation that requires self discipline, strong integrity, self reflection are potentially factories were you can find these sort of people.

maybe thats why gurus, mentors and coaches are so important in our lives, not having them is a big stumbling block in our own self actualization and true happiness...

think about those that inspire you, that show a certain amount of self-discipline, that bring joy to others just in their presence and conversations, those that display compassion, those that display integrity....now those are the people you want to associate with, as you will find that you will automatically start mirroring them through repeated contact with them, and in the process change your own hardwiring for the better...
