Shatter and spin again
Metadata[+] Show full item record
There are many reasons for accepting viewpoints that are naîve and uncompromising. Maybe it's the only position to which we've been exposed. Maybe it's easier to accept instead of to question. But it is in the relief of admitting to the lies we've told ourselves that peace emerges. This peaceful stillness provides the backdrop for truth's small voice to speak--a voice that is comforting, despite its call to reconsider thinking, reexamine choices, and reconfigure priorities. Then we must build a new perspective. Most likely the world is the same at the end of this journey. But it sounds different. This piece is about that journey. It moves continuously through four stages: Lies I told myself; A still, small whisper; Birth of a new perspective; and Paradigm blooming.The first and last stages are about trying to make sense of one's beliefs in the midst of a complex and confusing world. The middle sections represent an inner dialogue between the journeyer and the creator.
