Explorers are adventurous people.  They are full of curiosity and probably very intelligent.  Also, they probably couldn’t understand why everyone didn’t have the same desire to look past the known edges of one’s life.  Columbus had a frustrating time convincing royalty the need to spend money to back his expansion of their known world.  He wasn’t  the only one; all explorers had somewhat the same problem.  Imagine the inner need to solve and the feeling not everyone had the same drive to reveal the answer.

Most of today’s conflicts rise from the same “need”.  Each “cause” wants to not only convince everyone else that it is the most important agenda in life but the best solution lays within “their” ideal resolution.  This idea is not only applicable in the physical aspect of one’s life, but the psychological.

To explore the mind  of another is confusing and frustrating.  Because rarely does anyone else think and resolve a problem with the same tactics or methods.  Many times in one’s zeal to solve a problem,  they clash and break things by ripping away ideas or items that are not ready to be treated in this manner.  An example of this is on cable television on two separate shows about hoarders.  One of the shows portrays a group of “clearers” who come in and in the span of a few days clears off most of the hoard, makes the place look like a picture in “Home and Garden”, and then they leave.  The other “hoarder” show (“Hoarders:Buried Alive”), a team comes in shows the hoarder how to select and gets them involved with the clean up much the same way but with the big difference being they leave and come back six months later to see how much the hoarder has done on their own with all of the therapy both shows have the hoarder in.  The point of the difference is that the hoarder not only does the clearing out more on their own in “Buried Alive” but at a pace “safer” for the severance process in the hoarder’s mind.   It might be interesting to see the “six months later” version of the “Hoarders” show.  Many of the hoarders would likely be the same or headed back to the previous direction especially those resisting the therapy.

While not everyone hoards items in the physical world, most of us carry “baggage” in our minds.  Removing or even changing a viewpoint of another is tricky.  As in hoarding, the person in “need” of changing has to carefully be guided to the point they are spearheading the process and not someone else.  Otherwise, disaster occurs.  Depending on what does occur and what factors are in play in many areas will determine how the eventual outcome will end up looking like.  Hopefully, time will not only heal but distance will settle damages done.
