Theres a great difference in knowing what is right and doing what is right. There are incredible amount of books with beneficial wisdom, films that can change lives and advice from well-meaning and well-informed friends that go to deaf ears when it comes to actual implementation. We value learning but are terribly skeptical of applying learnings to our own lives. The rigidness of our identity becomes our true weakness.
Applying a new learning to our lives is a risk worth taking, not taking it, is in fact more dangerous. The raging identity overzealous in guarding its boundaries needs to take a break. Taking ourselves out of our own way makes us into more wholesome beings and not regurgitations of what we were all this while.
