In one way or another, the last couple of blogs have been about change. The pace of change in the world is accelerating at an exponential rate. This is hard for the human mind to adapt to. It is at the heart of much of the problems that we are struggling with in the modern world.
Many people want things to go back to the way they used to be. That is not going to happen. We can’t put that genie back in the bottle. All we can do is to try to shape these changes so that they yield positive consequences.
Shaping change isn’t easy. It will require us to keep our minds open. We will have to embrace lifelong learning. We will have to push the boundaries of our comfort zones. We will have to keep our minds flexible. This will require us to keep using them. Stretching them. Learning new skills and new subjects. And keeping our bodies active can help with our mental flexibility too.
We can make the change be for the better. We will have to keep our minds and hearts focused on the world that we want to create. And we will have to change as well. That is the biggest challenge. But it will be worth the effort.
Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
