'Transition' Chapter

Status

Your life has its form by “events”. These events are often judged as lunacy, at other times seen as inspiration, but they are actually the stabilization of forces in your life. When you are coasting, you haven’t gained stability or form. You have lost it. What makes those moments into clarity or lunacy is awareness. The sacred moment of inspiration is thought to be a delusion, but the routine is the delusion.

People find the future scary. This is why some people never learn to drive a car. That space right in front of the car can be really scary, but until you learn to see further you just won’t steer at all and instead will be steered by someone else, or you will have very many crashes. We all learn either in the long or short run. We all have the vehicle of life, and it’s in motion for all of us, and we can all see our now.

“Nothing is secure but life, transition, the energizing spirit.” Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Poet, Lecturer and Essayist, 1803-1882)

“Disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition in our lives.” William Bridges

Routine Is Delusion

Do you feel your life is stable? Is it largely the same on a daily basis? Why do you think so? Habits can be routine. Stable life, daily basis. For one thing, I do wake up almost as intact as… Seek More

Window Rituals

People drift in the illusion of stable routine, but they aren’t entirely aimless. We all have those pivotal moments that sling shot us off in some direction before we settle into drift. But these moments, for most people, are “accidents”,… Seek More

Deliberate Creation

On the topic of the deliberately created moment, as I said earlier, you don’t have wisdom, wisdom has you. When you realize this, you realize how those insight moments arise, and can deliberately change not the world … but yourself.… Seek More

Deliberate Moments

One of the best things about reality is that it’s meaningless, and it has no meaning until we assign it one? Drift is meaningless, but the decisive moment that seems so chaotic and unreal… in that there is meaning. The… Seek More

Life In Transition

Anybody feel like their life is in transition? Care to share what that is like? I’m sacred. I mean scared. I don’t know what the future holds, and things are changing so fast. Sacred too, but was not your point.… Seek More

Life Without Crisis?

Nothing is being done to you. Those insights we had as teens were an opportunity when we were so angst ridden. Ever find yourself saying “He/she/they don’t know I’m alive”? It is a half truth, and it’s almost always misinterpreted.… Seek More

Vehicle Of Life

People often lament that life is sprinkled with moments of change with long stretches in between. True, but is life immutable? Just have to wait for an air hole to breath from? I don’t think so. Then you understand that… Seek More

Sense of Touch

I will open with a question. What is status? Current state of being. Position relative to other similar objects. Any other thoughts? How do we understand our status? How others perceive us, their feedback. Our senses? We have a variety… Seek More

Psychopathic Frame of Mind

Ambitious people also tend to be callous people. This has even been examined scientifically. Just as everyone has features of the autistic personality, they also have features of what they call the psychopathic personality. There is a simple way to… Seek More

Easing Fear of Transition

Perhaps another approach… Universally, we all display neurotic behaviour. Neurosis is defined as the display and perseverance in any non adaptive behaviour, something you do that serves no definable purpose, moves you no closer to any goal. Why is this?… Seek More
