Rejecting New Ideas & Locking Ourselves in the Present Past

We wish for change and stability. Change that doesn’t involve:

  • changing ourselves
  • reevaluating our own set of beliefs, or even
  • reaching out for new ideas

The present is a gift that needs unwrapping. Do we keep our senses heightened to experience what is happening in the now? Or do we allow ourselves to go through auto-pilot, a hibernative state in which the grass dies, relationships fade and we lose our sense of self, our identity?

The worse part about auto-pilot mode, other than the lack of awareness, is that the script was written by anyone but us. And yet we don’t take the time to observe, evaluate and upgrade it.

When confronting new ideas with a strong feeling of disapproval we have to ask ourselves what is the source of our beliefs. What is keeping us ‘here’, in this state of mind and for how long have we been ‘here’? Chances are our present belongs far away in the past.
