Break Out, Break In, and Break Free
It’s is not about erasing the old taps, as much is it about knowing that there are many movies in our minds that are no longer worthy of watching. Take time for new untapped adventures that trumps the old downloads.
Time to break out, break in and break free from old, outdated conditioning. There is another wild side to be undiscovered, waiting to be let out.
DISCIPLINE YOUR WILDNESS
Clarissa Pinkola Estés suggests that we all need to go cheerfully and enthusiastically out of our minds periodically. Make sure, she says, that at least one part of you always remains untamed, uncategorizable, and unsubjugated by routine. Be adamant in your determination to stay intimately connected to all that’s inexplicable and mysterious about your life.
At the same time, though, Estés believes you need to keep your unusual urges clear and ordered. Discipline your wildness, in other words, and don’t let it degenerate into careless disorder.
