Did you know that when the telephone was introduced, angry protesters actually pulled down phone poles around the country?
And, when cars became common on rural roads people sat on their porches and fired shots at them as they passed.
Today, people throw Lime and Bird scooters into dumpsters and even off of buildings.
Whenever society progresses, there is ALWAYS a faction of people fighting—and I do mean FIGHTING, to hold things back.
We can scoff at such people and feel superior.
Or, we can look within ourselves to discover where we are resisting progress in our own lives.
The resistance to progress we see in society is a mirror of the resistance within ourselves.
As we grow, so grows everyone and everything around us.
So, it’s important to grow as much as we can not just for ourselves but for everyone who lives now and will live after us.
