You will never change until you have a WHY!  Allow me to introduce you to the biggest WHY you will ever have in your life – CHAOS, your chaos.

Until fairly recently we all gathered around the fire and listened intently and smugly to the theories of such notable scientist as Newton, Kepler and, if your partial Galileo.  Even when our current scientist showed proof that all was not as first reported, supported by our own personal battles with reality, things just not working out, we still walked down the primrose lane.


Not anymore!  Nevertheless, we still do not want to nor will we CHANGE unless there is the WHY!  A big fat personal WHY.  Not a WHY from social services telling us that our senior years are mortgaged.  Not from our educational institutions that still marginalize the majority of its citizens – pedagogy still reigns.  Not even with the wrenching, fermenting vows of holy matrimony will we be brave enough to ask ourselves WHY am I still here?

Constant Change

Think of the swirling, formless chaotic mass of unbounded space and formless matter that the scientists tell us existed before the creation of the universe.  And then look at the perfectly formed fingers and toes of a newborn baby that are the result of the system of constant change that still rules our universe.  Is that not proof that out of even the most chaotic situation imaginable – something good and positive and wonderful can emerge?  Do not change because other people are telling you how you should think and act!  Do not change because you just want to fit in with what everyone else is doing!

Find the Real You

When you find that your life is in a state of flux and uncertainty, look deeply into the chaos and find yourself, find the real you.  Ask what you want and need out of your life.  Only then can you start re-shaping the chaos and making the changes that will take you closer, every day, to the life you have always wanted to live!
