Lately I have been thinking about how many possibilities there are to do things in different ways. It bothers me to admit that I have been fooled by believing that systems that are in place are permanent. Once I can consider that the impermanence in life can extend beyond my own mortality I begin to realize that anything can end.
Institutions can end. My concepts of cultural norms can end. What I do on a regular basis is just a creation of actions that I have superimposed over the alternative of inaction.
Every assumption about how things work is just one of many assumptions.
Everything is possible.
