Waiting on the World to...




People usually wait for the world to change, sometimes the world at large and sometimes our own little world. Since worldly change is not in our hands we don't see to what we want and we give up trying. We rarely think of changing ourselves which is possible.

When we change, our thoughts and attitude change too. We are then able to look at the people and our world around us with a different vision. Thus we find that our world changes, not so much in the situation as much as in our own perception.

What are you waiting to change, and what are you waiting for?

  1. "People usually wait for the world to change, sometimes the world at large and sometimes our own little world.": Regarding externalized diffuse anxiety and agoraphobia(see my comment on the previous post). Trace this backwards: Sign, Signal, Signature, Signet, Sigil, Seal (A sign that the world is changing results in a signal, perhaps anxiety, which resonates with our self-identity--or "signature", and is sealed by our individual nature and encoded... signet, sigil, seal). This is understood as "wish fulfillment" (we don't always wish for the right things) and might confirm our worst fears. Utopian thinking has this problem: We are the product and process... we are produce. This, however, is better than being bred as pets and then eaten (better than being domesticated).
