Change or Die

You wanna know why people don’t reinvent themselves??

I’m going to be harsh, but here goes:

………………………we are seduced into comfort.

Personal awareness is not supported or taught so most people let themselves fall into ruts –

……….living lives of repetitive thought patterns, reliving old childhood wounds, hiding behind computers, t.v.s, food, the same old ways of being, alcohol, or even drugs.

Check out this short video.  You won’t have to go through the physical pain the eagle does. But it is a metaphor because you WILL need to address your personal demons.

The choice continues to be the same: change or die.

In the case of humans, the death is a life of slow withdrawal to die in obscurity never having really lived.
