Default Paradigm Busters

Let's look at paradigms. I bust myself constantly, slipping into old paradigms, paying lip service to the new ones in the grand sense while letting the old creep subtly back into my thought-patterns.

I would say - I almost said - it's a constant battle. But see? That's so O.P! What I meant was, it's a constant opening and a continual challenge, as I find ways to express my purpose in terms of new paradigms as I am led in spirit. And I am not alone. It takes creativity and a little effort to change paradigms or even to honestly look at the ones we take for granted. Here are a few I've been noticing:

OP: How much can I charge?

NP: What's the least I can reasonably charge?

OP: Things are gonna get really bad.

NP: Things are changing. What's bad about that? (Or: Define bad).

OP: Scared.

NP: Excited.

OP: Dogmatic.

NP: Willing to learn and to discern.

And so it goes...I invite one and all to consider their paradigms, not just when expressing themselves here, but even more so as we live every mundane moment...there I go again...there are no mundane moments!
