Deliberate Evolution

Deliberate evolution plays a major role in the Theory of Balanceology. I designate deliberate evolution as a purposive process of self-evolution. It is making the decision to say yes to change. Deliberate evolution is making an attempt to Jump-Start one’s life. It is a process whereby we endeavor to understand and accept our nature, experience our needs, review our current view of reality, and to make some sense of our current existence. I highly appraise deliberate evolution because it involves honest questioning, healthy skepticism, and the ability to raise doubts. It is an effort to review the socialization norms of one’s native culture and to honestly evaluate one’s current beliefs, values, attitudes, and societal expectations. It is the process of keeping beliefs, values, attitudes, and social expectations that are working for us, and jettisoning those that aren’t working. Deliberate evolution encourages being the director of one’s own life story. It is choosing to be the Architect of My Life! Self-evolution for me has been a journey where I made a decision to have a readiness and an eagerness to develop a new worldview, philosophy, vision, mission, and values, and to find a path to better know myself. For any of us, I contend that deliberate evolution has the potential to catapult the Self towards meeting needs, and thus having advanced meaning, balance, and health in life. Deliberate evolution is that self-evolutionary path where a person says yes to make meaningful lasting changes in their life.
