I pretty much agree with Ree. I'll change anything if I experience, or feel a reason to.
But, cdn, this is the blunt facts for me. If I'm standing in my beachside mansion, feeling deluxe, feeling awesome, surrounded by the love of my happy thriving family, stoked with now, and what I believe I'm creating, and I want to to be and am super fit and surf really well, when I like, and donate to charities and have all these dreams, and Spiritual leanings and experiences...and someone says...
'Hey mate, you're deluded. Illusional. You're foolin' yourself, dreamin', I know the truth, its all a coincidence, luck, you are doing this wrong, that wrong, and whats more, what you think is dangerous, you don't really know a thing.'
And, if that person was a physical wreck, standing out the front, trying to hitch a lift, to get to his rundown house next to the smelting works, and asked me if I could lend him a few bob... and was moaning about his job and this and that, well, what do you reckon. Naturally I would say, 'Geee mate, teach me, I'm all ears' (yeh, right)...more like, 'hey why don't you try manipulating all these consequenses, and using all these skills you are an expert in'.
Or alternatively, if I bumped into some guy or girl in the surf, and they were stoked outa there heads, ripping, surfing unreal, and they went into their awesome camper, maybe powered by that wind generator Dan showed us, and they looked awesomely heathy, fit and happy. I would want to know more. Then if they were telling me how they were doing all this stuff, fullfilling all these dreams, stoked, free, inspired, content, and they felt it was all due to certain beliefs...I would be clamouring for info. And when I tried it, if I found the same thing happening I would change, adopt it in an instant. And if I didn't like it, I wouldn't, and wouldn't expect the other person to care less.
And thats what I do. Regardless of what anyone thinks or says.
