"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
It is easy to forget that those things which truly impact us, which cause us to think new things and expand our consciousness. will do so in ways that change us forever. We can, of course, choose to ignore a life-altering thought or circumstance, but it is still there continuing to affect change even from the “back of our minds” or our unconsciousness. When we find ourselves thrust into newness of thought, our perceptions are bigger, deeper and; most importantly, different. To welcome that difference enables us to grow beyond where we thought our growth might end, to become more than we thought possible, and to change the world beyond our imagination. Our old expectations are challenged and are destined to remain so. And so we embrace, even seek, the new, the transformative, and the unfamiliar and we are changed. Namaste
