Guillotines and Back Seat Drivers


Recommended Posts



When looking back through history, we tend to see things in terms of "events."

Like the French Revolution, for example.

It sounds like an event. Something that happened.

History books tell us that it lasted ten years.

But that's not entirely accurate.

It's not like everybody was feeling fantastic right up until the night before that ten year "event" started.

Then everybody spontaneously decided having a revolution would be a good idea.

More likely a lot of people had been upset for a lot of different reasons for a LONG TIME before they started throwing punches.

Tom Clancy became famous for writing thriller novels with MASSIVE attention to detail.

One of his books was about terrorists who got their hands on an atomic bomb.

Now, a nuclear explosions is FAST.

But Clancy somehow spent two pages describing this "process" that takes microseconds.

And made it interesting!

It's been said that there are three kinds of people in life.

Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who say, "What happened?"

One way to look at life, either on an individual level or even a society wide level is a great "unfolding."

The "end" of one event and the beginning of another "event" all depends on how you define these events, AND who is doing the defining.

A common idea in life is to "hurry up and get there."

Like kids in the back seat of a car on a family trip.

"Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

Consider instead to enjoy the never ending PROCESS of life.

Sleeping to waking, being hungry to being full, being bored to being excited.

There is no shortage of "unfoldings" to appreciate.

If you are TOO focused on the destination (are we there yet?) you'll miss all the stuff along the way.

Once upon a time all humans were nomads. Explorers.

They NEVER really wondered "are we there yet" since they had no idea where they were going.

Only that they wanted to find a BETTER place than where they were.

Consider making the decision to ENJOY the unfolding of life.

Especially the transitions, state changes and phase shifts.

One of the most profound thing of all is how "thoughts" become "things."

After all, once upon a time there was nothing on Earth.

Now there is TONS of stuff.

And every single one of those "things" was a "thought."

What's thoughts will you turn into things?
