Change is not in our nature

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”Albert Einstein

Change hangs thick in the air.

Mostly we run away from it…not towards it.

When we investigate why we abhor fear, we stop short of anything more profound than a verbal acknowledgement.

Imagine, though, a world where instead of backing off, we dived in. (I can’t conceive it, if only because I’ve seen so little of it.)

Let’s be clear, we’re not exactly engineered to escape the unease that change induces. That bloody amygdala is a curse and saviour. That said, our social conditioning has a lot to answer for, particularly when life is presented in such a linear way.

An answer? I don’t have one, save to keep raising the bar a little higher in my own life, even if that’s currently limited to talking about the issue as opposed to acting on instinct.
