Benjamin, vulnerability has its price but the reward is great. I love that you say, “Changing your belief system and expanding your vision takes courage. It’s so easy to revert back to small and mediocre thinking”.
This is the incredible work of life that may seem so complex, but it’s really not. It is just really, really hard to implement.
I watched the movie, “Wonder Woman” last night. The backdrop of the story is WWI. There is a part where she decides to go through the wasteland that lies between the two fighting armies. Barren, desolate, and dehumanizing. No one has dared to venture crossing over to the otherside. Wonder Woman crosses and in doing so faces the enemy head on.
This reminds me of moving through the wasteland of who and what we are in thoughts. Thoughts that have given us security and an identity that we cling to for survival. Yet this seeming security has isolated us from having the relationships we want.
Many human beings avoid this wasteland of thought and emotion. Like you say it takes courage. If you value courage more than the rut of mediocre thinking, yes a whole new vision can open up.
So well put. Thank you for sharing.
