I have found that many concessions take place in getting along with people. If you want to have a site with common interests and aspirations it is imperative to keep to those goals with not too many distractions. Because if we allow too many distractions we have proved that we get involved in needless disputes and social differences. That is why I had to change my personality and the topics at the portal. I do not have time in my life for needless distractions. Especially when I am attempting to maintain my daily spiritual practice and service to those around me; which is ultimately service to God.

I am unable to make changes in the world to any meaningful extent. Although, I can make changes in myself. If we find ourselves on a collision course in our personal lives we have three options I see available. One is leaving the situation. Another is confrontation and lastly finding common interests and views.

It has become more and more apparent to me that we can be pulled away from our goals in life by allowing ourselves to be needlessly distracted by our own restless activities and desires as well as the multifaceted opinions, desires and interests of those around us in our environment, here, at work, at home and in our leisure time.

There's an important element missing in this realization, one in my opinion is needed by those who feel they are distracted from their goals(my self included). It's called FOCUS.

Distractions will always be there, exercising ones will to focus or concentrate is the practice necessary to overcome or to move about in an environment not befitting our personal aspirations.

An example I can give here is that there are so many threads we could choose to engage in. And yet we rarely choose to engage in the ones that seem to align with our common interest. Is it human nature to latch onto differences?

I find nothing wrong with a member posting something I may not agree with, and it could be there is a lesson behind it. It's up to me not to engage when I feel it is hindering my desired lifestyle. As you've said, we make the changes within.

Disagreements and distractions are a natural part of life. Here's to us honing our skills as we will surely encounter them again. Best of luck!
