Change

some say is hard:

I don't think so.  I think what is hard is letting go. Telling our psychology to take a hike.  The human body is an amazing electro-chemical system that in some ways we are only beginning to more fully understand.

"If we say 'life is hard' - Life Will Be Hard." - Flores

My first recollection of the ability to change was at about five years of age.  Breathing issues diagnosed as asthma.  This was cool because my older brother had asthma, my mother, too.  But I wanted to play ball in the street with my friends.  Reluctantly, probably my mother let me go.  I gagged horribly when I first started running around.  My body reflexes shifted to expelling foreign matter mode and for a moment it wasn't clear that any more air was coming.  Pushing through that changed my mind.  The fresh air on the other side of potentially blacking out was sweet.  More sweet than the medication they were giving me for asthma.  I chose not to accept the universe's offer that I adopt the asthma story.  Thanks, no.

The operating theory that humans can indeed change their minds, and from there change the course of life.  We see it over and over again.  In positive frames we call this invention, initiative, flexibility.  In negative frames the opposite; a vacuum of ideas, lethargy and rigidity.  These are all, to some degree, choices.  Physical limitation accepted.  If you are 5'4" you are 5'4."  The choice is in label.

"So, how do we change our mind?  And, make the change stick."

We manage our psychology.  And, this is not simple in our - [do whatever we want, justify it to no end, win at all cost] - societies.

"Toronto, right now may just be waking up to such reality."

The Canadian city in the throws of a massive digital rights play that pits the city's own interests against itself.  Why?  Because it is easy to profit from the sale of things that are not yours.  At a base level this is being a thief.  At other levels simply doing business.


Application > Self: Changing our minds a very powerful concept to take on.  What does it mean to change our mind, really, to set change into action?  What does it feel like?

"Skateboarding between ultimate bliss, and absolute hell."

Fear of the unknown is changes worst enemy.  Change loves the unknown, because it holds more change.  Fear loves the unknown, because it generates more fear.  What's the difference?  Both choices of position along a line between the two.  A continuum of possibility.

Think for a minute about something you were once afraid of, but no longer are.  The simplest thing, perhaps dipping a toe into a pool of water.  Some choose to jump in, some choose to sit on the edge.  Some choose to sit on the edge, then jump in.

Changing state.  We actually do this quite automatically all the time.  Our bodies moving from one location to another a series of animated steps in sequence. 

At closer look WE are really changing all the time.  And, sometimes critical change is available from a perspective right around the corner, we just need to go look.


EXPLORATION: Where should YOU change?  How do we prove change?  How will we know when we have changed?  Where can we see examples of effective change?  Is changing back change? 


Case Example ~ Situation | Solution | Result:

Situation > Working to produce change at the top.

Solution > Listen to where the top thinks he, or she is.

Result > Refinement of positions from the perspective of understanding are more probable.  Fluid.  Less friction.
