"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Even Truth Can't be Widely Accepted Until Next Generation

"In his book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Thomas Kuhn popularized the word “paradigm shift.”15 He made clear that even in the scientific field, a paradigm shift is tantamount to what religion often calls “major conversion.”And it is equally rare in both science and religion! Any genuine transformation of worldview asks for such a major switch from the track we’re familiar with that often those who hold the old paradigm must actually die off before a new paradigm can gain traction and wide acceptance."

(Richard Rohr. The Divine Dance)
