Proverbs are not always right

The young cannot teach tradition to the old.

Yoruba proverb

Hmmm. The proverb seems reasonable, but the times they are a-changin'. 

Tradition is not always right. Traditions of greed, war, guns, hatred, and brutality have not left us, collectively, in a good place. 

I'm excited and hopeful when I read about millennials supporting Bernie, youth protesting the treatment of blacks by police, young people all over the globe who are less isolated within their own heritage and more representative of a confluence of cultures. I'm feeling old myself these days. Time is in short commodity. But I do take heart from the young. I think they have much to teach us about both tradition and change.

On the other hand you can teach an old dog new tricks! This is scientifically proven as brain scans definitely show growth of new neurons when subjects learn and apply new information. This process is called neuroplasticity and it offers tremendously encouraging motivation for each of us -- no matter our age or the age of teachers-- to learn and apply ways that will contribute to peace on this planet.

You're right, of course: the betterment of the world is not just for the young. We all can change, inwardly and outwardly. Your books are such a strong support and guide this type of change. I have recommended Grow Up Your Ego and Journeying to others, who also feel inspired by your message.
