When one CHALLENGES THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION they risk the cost of rejection. There is a state of aloneness when someone walks the path of distinction. Anytime a new way of being is established, be prepared to walk alone for a time. Creating a new way to see reality can produce a hostile reaction from the local ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION. Change is so difficult to accept by many.
There are times when one must take a step away from THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION. As James Baldwin said, “You have to tell the world how to treat you because if the world tells you how you are going to be treated you are in trouble.” We have to approach life with an openness. With that openness, as a child’s mind, will bring many benefits. A new PERSPECTIVE, and many possibilities. That new PERSPECTIVE can bring isolation, because it can CHALLENGE THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION. Walk alone for a while and you will see in time there will be others walking behind you.
Yes, CHALLENGING THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION will attack one’s own VULNERABILITY. But, to be sensitive to REALITY an individual must be VULNERABLE. Understanding life one is governed by feeling. Feeling is part of being VULNERABLE. So be not afraid of CHALLENGING THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION as long as the CHALLENGE COMES FROM THE HEART/SOUL and the CHALLENGE most importantly is a benefit to everyone. CHALLENGING THE ACCEPTED CURRENT SITUATION WILL BE REWARDING TO YOU KNOWING THE BENEFIT IS FOR EVERYONE.
TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, ALWAYS STAY HEALTHY. THANK YOU.
