Confusion is not our enemy. Confusion is our body’s deepest creativity. It may not always feel pleasant, but confusion is like a picture coming into focus. Sometimes, all the information is already there. Other times, confusion is the process of gestating something new.
In an evolving universe periods of confusion are absolutely necessary if we are to grow. When confusion becomes frustrating, we must occasionally whisper to our hearts an affirmation of faith: “If I can but listen, this confusion will eventually lead me where I need to go.”
So we might say that confusion can be a symptom of internal reconstruction. It is, like sleep, necessary for various forms of growth and repairs, but it impairs our function while it persists, so we try to minimize it, placing much more emphasis on current action than on foundational development. 5/25/14, 19:02 CDT
True enough. Thanks Bob.
