We are living in interesting times.
Whether we choose to sweep things under the carpet, hide behind our keyboards and live in a virtual world, or just plain resistance to change, we cannot deny that things are changing in the world, BIG TIME.
Whether we believe it or not, whether we want to or not, it is changing.
There is also a real possibility that everything that we have always thought to be true, is turning out to be false. These days, we have to be prepared for this - whether it is a big idea/idealogy or something seemingly insignificant that we thought was this way, is actually that way.
Those who cling on tight to belief systems, refusing to entertain the possibility there might be more to the picture than meets the eye, will have their world turned upside down by life, whether they want to believe it to not. This is simply because as a species, we are made to evolve.
The evolutionary process is a funny one. It gives us some breathing space to work with a set of beliefs, so we swallow it, we breathe it, we make it real in our lives, and because there is no more energy or space to work it, this set of beliefs will turn its head around and make us victims of it. And we are then forced to look further, wider to see what we may have missed or maybe even denied.
Now, at this stage of our evolutionary process, it is time for each of us to look more deeply into our own lives, belief systems, habits, mindsets, emotions, and ask ourselves, which area of our lives have we been far too comfortable? And then watch things unravel because whatever it is that we are "comfortable" with, we will see it pulling us in different directions, causing us to fall out of the comfort zone.
Keep in mind as well that our comfort zone could be a zone of pain, suffering. We have gotten comfortable being in that space because we fear change.
Be honest with yourself, are you in a comfort zone where you feel tortured in your relationship (you don't want to rock the boat). Or are you in a comfort zone of being brain dead in your job (because you really have no interest in the work that you do). Or are you in a comfort zone of meaninglessness (because you feel no motivation, meaning or don't understand why you are here).
If you're only living for the weekends, you seriously need to re-look everything you're doing in your life. Looking forward to living 2-3 days a week out of a 7 day week is no way to live a meaningful life. The question is: What do you really want?
Change is inevitable right now, more than ever, so hop on the train of change, because this train is not stopping for anyone.
