Crises as opportunities


A crisis is something that helps us see, when nothing before that could make us turn our heads/minds. It comes looking like a bad thing, and many of us get stuck there, if we continue to see it this way.

Crises come in many forms and shapes, from health issues, to relationships problems, jobs lost etc, etc. Social viewpoints and beliefs form our concepts of what’s important, what we can overcome or not, what defines us and what threatens us. Social beliefs that we have made our own, backed up by numbers, of all the people around us that support the same beliefs.

We don’t have a mind of our own. Not unless we use it to doubt the virtual realities around us and within us that we call “real” and concrete, objective and correct.
