Our stories are vital because they shape our reality.
“People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them,” wrote James Baldwin.
This is particularly true about our perceptions of adversity.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space.
“In that space is our power to choose our response.
“In our response lies our growth and our freedom,” wrote psychiatrist Viktor Frankl.
Our stories provide the context in which our perceptions form.
They serve as the connective tissue between stimulus–what happens to us from day-to-day–and our response.
As such exploring that space is vital to our physical and emotional well-being.
Because therein lies our future. (Wow!)
This is how to achieve a paradigm shift in the 21st Century beyond post-modern future–now. Good luck. Join us. -Keven.
