If your survival needs are taken care of – food, shelter, relative safety – chances are excellent that you have at least one or more goals that you’d like to see blossom into reality. Your goals might be related to your housing, location, wellness, relationships, or livelihood, or something else. Yet many people who want to create new outcomes or new realities sabotage themselves right from the start, by failing to realize that if you want new outcomes, you need new road-maps and routes.
The great physicist, Albert Einstein, said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” He also said that the problems you face can’t be solved by the same level of thinking that created the problems. Perhaps this is what the Buddha meant when he counseled that “with your thoughts, you make your world”? And, maybe this is what Jesus meant when he commented that “you can’t put new wine into an old wine-skin”?
In other words, to change your circumstances or your outcomes, transform your thoughts and your ‘ways of doing’.
Change your road-maps and your routes, and you’ll arrive at new destinations that may be more in keeping with your real sense of purpose and meaning.
