I want to see things differently

A worthy effort, on our part, is to work on withdrawing, as much as we can, our preconceived ideas regarding our world.

Seems simple, right?

Wash the laundry... Take out the trash... And totally scrap your past stories about the world that surrounds you.

No problem…

In all seriousness, though, a huge part of our growth is in stepping outside of our past story (or at least being aware that we’re living inside of it).

We live, wake up, and go to sleep in very much the same world we saw when we were adolescents.

As long as we define our world in past terms, we’ll never see the new meaning it holds for us.

The world around us has something new to show us. Something beautiful and clean and enlivening. Something that’s so far beyond any of our past paradigms, it’ll blow our socks off. But it’s up to us to be open to seeing it that way.
