We often become too focused, too single minded, and we concentrate too much on one thng, which we try to do to improve our discipline, but at the same time, we do it with a seriousness that isn't real. What we do is not earth shattering, and is pretty insignificant on a universal scale. I beleive everything we do is important and everything matters, snd that belief is one of those butterfly wings in China causing a storm in Peru thosands of miles away kind of things, so what we do matters, but we often forget there are other options and that we are never stuck.
Each day we open our front door, we literally can walk in any direction, any, as there are truly an infinite number of directions to go, an infinte number of things to be, and we just need to accept that we have that power to decide and chaange our direction at any moment. Any.
We often want change, we think we need change, but we also seem to have an internal built in machine in our heads that wants to not change, that seeks to find consistency.
We fight a constant battle between being cinstantly changing beings who are trying to remain the same, which is not possible, and we also battle to actively chnge everything else around us to our way of uniquely seeing the world, which is selfish, short sighted, and also not possible.
The world is constant change, we are constant change, and you can either spend your life angry and confused trying to prevent that change or you can accept it, become change itself and be an agent of change. Know that the future is a spiderweb of interdependence and that there are infinite possibilities, and you should nimbly jump from strand to strand, choosing your own way.
You want to be a person of pure expression, of pure commitment, of pue being.
We need to accept that what we are today is not what we have to be tomorrow.
We will change, and we can either guide that change or let others define who we will be.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
