A Species Thing
If craving for change is a biological urge then collectively its a species thing and the sum of all existing urges creates a source for infinite motives. Usually, an ensuing conflict arises when one drive takes precedence over another, an especially confusing moment. Unfortunately, the insight usually does not arrive until it is too late and an urge leads to a drive that can create physical dependencies that are often hard to acknowledge or change.
Moral conflicts are usually most difficult because they involve ethical dilemma’s that require time and thought in a lengthy process, although the exhausting struggle to find a resolution often leads to the acceptance that there is no resolution because regurgitating the same “stuff” in one’s head will lead to no new insight.
Since giving up is not considered an option, the only way to avoid indecision is adjusting perspective enough to notice change in the nature of thought – The Insight- The problem is picking a reasonable place to start a fresh look at the current dilemma that will maximize the possibility of success and at the same time be acceptable to the ego to suggest growth has begun towards a resolution.
Sometimes an unanticipated event will present itself in which case the conflict will change on its own, and so will the choices. At other times an act of impulsiveness may force the issue and the consequences are less predictable.
The ability to separate from one’s emotional nature, defined as that part of self which judges the situation, even for a short time can be helpful. Imagine sitting in the audience of a theater observing one’s life as the audience does from an external perspective solely to determine if the behavior being viewed is what one wants to express. By simply putting aside predictable responses and being open to things outside a habitual cycle, the atmosphere becomes more creative.
Unfortunately the difference between thoughtfulness and procrastination can be as obscured as the illusion between transcendence and dementia. Having a sense of humor can offer a helpful relief that can lead to another level of thinking.
