At the landmark forum one of the major keys of transformation handed was to change the perspective, behaviour or response such that we move past an unresolved issues.
Adversity is an unavoidable aspect of human existence. The struggle is on be it with the inner or the outer forces, many a times, the opposite forces that is the force that we are dealing with is better equipped to cope with challenges yet to come. There are times when the trials that we encounter seem so utterly hopeless, we strike at them with all our creativity and perseverance, hoping desperately to bring about change, only to meet with the same results as always. Our first instinct in such a situation is often to push harder against the seemingly immovable obstruction before us. Our first instinct in such situations is often to push harder against the seemingly immovable obstruction before us, assuming that this time we will be met with a different outcome. But staying power and stamina net us little when the same choices consistently garner the same results. Changing our perspective, behaviour or response can help us move past points where no amount of effort seems sufficient to overcome the difficulties before us.
The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
― Albert Einstein
Like Albert Einstein observed the world as we have created it is a process of ur thinking. It cannot be chaned without our changing our thinking. Whether our intention is to change ourselves or some element of the world around, transformation does not occur on hoping or wishing that it does. If our patterns of thought and behaviour remain unchanged our lives will continue to unfold much as they have previously. It takes a little honesty and courage to acknowledge the patterns; once they are acknowledged then we can question the choices that we make. Fruitless patterns can be replaced with choices that invoke the end result that we are looking at.
We might have to ask question, make adjustments to the thought processes and behaviour that held us back. To break free from those unconscious patterns that way long held sway over our actions and reaction might require challenging our assumptions on a most basic level. we might have to accept once for all that our beliefs with regards to cause and effect may no longer be in accordance with our needs.
The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well as the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind. When we stagnate, it is a sign that great changes are on the horizon. Courting the change that we wish to see in ourselves and the world round us, is only a matter of acknowledging change begets change. The results is so ardently aligned to the realm of possibility that we create and all we need to do is step out of that well-worn circular path and explore the untried realm of possibility. Stepping on to a brand new path is difficult but no more difficult than remaining in a situation which is nurturing to our whole self.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
