letting go tumblr

"We are sometimes so anaesthatised, dulled and lulled into a pseudo-comfort zone, that we accept a lot of things as having taken-for-granted status such as instituitional support from our government-led think-tanks without us exercising our brain neurons unduly. Why do we say 'pseudo'? Because this comfort zone is not real- it's like that perverse story told of a frog that happily swims around in the cooking pot whose temperature is getting higer and higher, completely unaware that it is slowly being cooked to be served up as the delicacy known as 'frog-legs'.

Are we hungry for success anymore? Can we take a chance on creativity and turn ourselves on our heads to see the world in a new light of freshness? Rendering the ordinary extraordinary, so as to speak- to see with freshness of newness, as William Wordsworth has metaphorically said in his poem, 'Composed Upon Westminster Bridge' when he talked about the sight of London in the morning, in terms of rebirth and renewal?

At the end of the day, we have to let go and find ourselves. We have to rediscover and rejuvenate the passion and curiosity that each of us possess, that we had started out with in life, eager-beaver and bushy-tailed with, so to speak. Then only can we be enriched by what is going on around us, and be part of the entire magical spectacle and process that life truly brings."
