I’ve been watching everything going on lately and I can clearly, in my opinion, see where we seem to be going wrong. There are two distinct sets of thinking going on right now and a deep, stubborn refusal to see life through a new perspective. People keep screaming about the radical left or the radical right causing trouble when in fact it is something very different. It is not left or right thinking that is disrupting the peace, it is the old paradigm versus the new paradigm we are witnessing waging war. The old ways of being and thinking are unable to let go and move forward, to try out new things, new ideas, new forms of governing for ourselves. It is as if their very life depends upon staying as it is, their minds incapable of imagining anything else could be possible. Like with Kim Jung Un, everybody from the old paradigm keeps screaming about what happened with No. Korea before, therefore it will happen again. How empty that way of thinking is. No room for advancement, growth or change. No room for trust and believing things can always get better. How stifling! Suffocating.
These times we find ourselves in right now are demanding we let go. These times are pleading for new ways of thinking to create the new road map ahead, yet we seem stuck in the mindset that if things are the way they are, it’s because they are the way we’ve always done it before, so that is what we will do again. NO! For many in the world, we don’t want to remain in this paradigm that is spiraling to its death. We want to be part of the new, up and coming paradigm and feel the excitement of stepping outside the box, testing the waters and doing things differently, which has become alluring to many who never dared think such things. If your shoes are too tight and pinch your feet you are not going to keep wearing them and feel pain. So why should we remain stuck in this dying paradigm and feel pain? If we can buy new shoes we can create a new way of being that fits and feels comfortable at long last. For far too long we have hobbled about in misery because we don’t dare to try anything new and what we have now no longer fits.
Well trying we are right now and the old paradigm is going crazy because it can;t keep things under their control. We have jumped out of the box and there is no going back. We know what the old paradigm has to offer us. What worked way back when no longer works , our minds and hearts no longer function the same way. We are shifting and growing and we can feel the pressure building of needing to stretch out from cramped quarters. And so we shall. Each and every one of us has the choice and chance to become someone new, to see life through new eyes and experience life on a new path. As scary as it is, it is also exciting and we must grab hold of those moments of excitement and take our steps forward towards the new world that awaits us.It is a blank canvas and a magnificent self-portrait is waiting to be created.
Blessings to us all,
