S2-E36 – People fail when they quit becoming.

Listen to this episode

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
~Anais Nin

The thought that life is becoming is true. It never is, it is always becoming. We are ever changing. We go through stages and states in life. We do things and try things, we experience life. Passion drives us in many new areas and many new experiences. When we get to the point where we find a state and decide to stay in that state, that stage, we are in, as Anais Nin says, a kind of death.

My friend Bud, says, Without change there is is no growth. When we don’t grow, we become stagnant. We essentially die. Only dead things don’t grow.

When people lose their passion for new experiences, new states, new stages their mind starts to atrophy. Do you know people like this. Instead of working to move to the next state, they stay dormant. I know people like that. They are stuck in the past. They don’t see the new experiences as a form of growth. They don’t see the new experiences as a positive. They want to be what they are or more so what they were at one time.

This is not healthy. Life moves on. Life grows. Experiences change and new friends and feelings form. We all must seek to experience new changes, to keep becoming. If not, we die. If not physically certainly mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.
