We all grow wedded to our accustomed ways.
We hold onto the deep grooves of holy habit, carved into our lives over and over by repetition. And we become so familiar to our choices and routines and lifestyle, that they don’t even seem weird anymore.
Silverman observed it best in her comedy special when she joked, nothing seems crazy when you’re used to it.
However, somewhere down the line, it starts becoming clear to us that our plan is no longer working. Maybe our current source of power is more trouble than it’s worth. And it might finally be time to operate beyond the limits of our winning strategy. Because the possibility of happiness beyond our precious little worldview isn’t as unattainable as we once thought.
Question is, will we give up certain cherished parts of ourselves? Will we abandon the limitless fountain of abundance we have been accustomed to? Will we wake up and laugh about how it used to be?
The revolutionary futurist artists, in their provocative manifesto, remind us that our eyes, accustomed to semi darkness, will soon open to more radiant visions of life.
Their words are a benediction of transformation for both artists and civilians alike. They assure us that as hard and as scary as change is, even if we would rather die than give up our organizing myth, it’s ultimately the next right action to take.
No matter how much pleasure we’re getting out of not changing, what awaits on the other side is nothing short of miraculous.
Change is already taking place everywhere at every moment anyway.
It seems wrong not to participate.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
How will you react when the standards according to which you live undergo a decisive change?
