Zen and the Art of On Seeing Simple Truths #46
EXPERIENCE has taught us that there comes a time in our lives when we must cross barriers or change paths if we are to get on with change and with facing our destiny.
This is often referred to as “giving it up,” or “letting go,” or “turning it over.”
But what are we giving up or letting go of?
Simply put, long-held sacred cows.
Often we interpret these times of transition, of giving up sacred cows, as difficult. Not necessarily because they are, but because we believe they are supposed to be.
If, in our old mind-sets, we have programmed a belief structure that difficult is a necessary part of change, then the process of change will seem to be difficult. Otherwise, we don’t believe it’s change.
We blend this misconstrued thought into what we have predetermined to be the only route available to the new and different, and we believe that the journey through change has to be difficult.
What If It’s Not?
What If You Just Think It Is?
(Heads up on this one.It is a corollary to you depending on you!)
