“The mistake is thinking that there can be an antidote to the uncertainty.”
― David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary
The year 2020 is closing out. This has been a very unscripted and unusual year of change, no doubt a turning point in the history of America as we have come to understand it. In order to get in front of any pandemic let alone the one we are currently facing, means creating an able-bodied and this above suspicion abstraction for aligning certain morals, values and economic standards towards future possibilities. It means restoring economic growth and helping American’s to address their most pressing needs and concerns.
At the same time, we must recognize that this pandemic is only a conclusive mirror and acceleration of trends that existed before this pandemic took shape. Given, the condemnation of our refusal to wear masks and accept this pandemic a true conductor of change; we are now realizing that the global community is beginning to confuse conjecture with consciousness and operate irrational for the sake of consideration. Our response to these major challenges if we desire to build a more sustainable future; must consolidate our jaded biases and acknowledge a new response to this global pandemic.
Seizing & Taking Control: Getting in front of the pandemic is more about addressing these judicial uncertainties head on. It’s about accepting the fact that nothing is certain and that there are justifiable reasons to begin rethinking the nature of economics. Because change is inevitable, it is in these keystone moments that we must understand the differentiated nature of seen versus unseen. If you are looking for stability it may never come. But, you most certainly can attest to the fact that 1+1=2. The control that you must exude then is over your licentious thinking. Because you are having to liquidate your frame of reference concerning the unknown can be a very precarious proposition to handle in light of your misaligned comfort zone.
The hardest part in this global reckoning is the deviation from old patterns that has stagnated the know-how of modern thought. The guesswork has been stripped from your normal routine. The perception is that you can only operate from the visible; or run your life amuck trying to labor in your biased lease on life. What you think you see with your natural eyes could be an illusion. In the words of William Arthur Ward its important to remember that “The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of like is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.”
Thinking Differently: Thinking differently is about gaining a new perception of life. You are removing this loathsome or obnoxious feelings about economic uncertainty; and reframing it to fit a time in history that has opened its doors for the thinking mind to build and grow wealth. You are logistically fighting to clarify your existence as a human being. The basis of all living extends through the mind and projects outward. Thinking differently is a way of life. It’s a state of being frustrated and confused around the disjointed and fragmented ways of lunacy. When little has you big can’t grab your circumference and pull you into its orbit. If you are not seeing an economic boom then ask yourself ” Do I need to become a magician or take on a more Machiavellian approach to my existence?
Trying to stand out in a crowded world makes you strive for creative solutions. Operating in this maddening isolation due to COVID19 will give you time to reflect on the nature of change and what it actually means to think differently. Do you want answers to life’s most pressing problems? Do you need clarity to outpace the makeshift illusions of this world? Voltaire says that “Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one“. Throw away the need for certainty because it’s an illusion that doesn’t exist. It’s all about manufacturing dissent with the intent of separating fact from fiction.
A few great questions you might want to ask is “Why should I want to think differently? What does it mean to see things differently? Perspectives are important. The hardest thing to do on earth is to change the mind. The bombardment of information and Illusionary tales gives this false impression about life and what it entails. There is a depth to living and the deeper one begins to dig the greater the awareness of the flaws that exist. Life is operational and the more you seek to create fluid experiences the more you will cease to be like the crowd.
The Nature of Change: The dangerous nature of change is that it comes whether you like it or not. Adaptability now begins to take root in your subconscious mind and the game changes forever. Forcing new experiences on the psyche gives it room to pattern a new species in the thought process. As creatures of habit, we need our thinking patterns challenged and rotated often. Varied experiences are often the key to realigning the balanced psychological mainframes that says mental stagnation equals success. Turning a blind eye to the demands of our perception leads to destruction; thus forcing us to recon with the need to become more marketable versus masquerading around afraid to lose our footing.
To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself. Søren Kierkegaard
