“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.” ~ Frank Zappa
What a great metaphor for life. It is great to take personal responsibility--to be the author of one’s own experience--but it also behooves me to keep myself open to outside influence, so that I can I further develop my understanding of myself. All too often, I can become attached to ‘my meaning’, which only creates further division and potential for conflict.
