Our minds do not like change, this isn’t a new revelation. If we left all life decisions to our rational thinking we wouldn’t see much change or innovation in the world. According to famed physicist, Erwin Schrodinger, life is always in the process of seeking order found in the external environment. He believed that life is dependent upon the balance between efficiency of patterns and entropy (i.e., loss of pattern). Perhaps this is why our thinking becomes rigid and fearful of any change. Our brains resist any possibility of pattern disruption and in turn find ways to retain order and stability resulting in: inflexible thoughts, emotions, opinions, skepticism, and beliefs.
Most of us identify solely with our thinking. As a result, we can become immobilized when our heart is desiring more in life. Our heart knows there’s so much more to be explored in life and that it’s immense beyond our comprehension.
In the movie, The Legend of 1900, we see an example of clinging to the familiar rather than accepting the change life offers us. Danny Boodmann T.D. Lemon 1900 (Tim Roth) has lived all his life on a luxury cruise liner. He was orphaned as a newborn and adopted by the crew. His extraordinary skills as a jazz pianist entertain the crowds as the ship goes back and forth across the Atlantic. 1900 is a dreamer and always imagined that someday he would leave his home on the water and find a new life on land. He gets many opportunities to step off the ship and start a new life, but he hesitates and doesn’t take action. As time goes on, the travel industry changes, and his ship is no longer needed.
1900 falls in love with a young woman and decides he will finally get off the boat. His heart knows there’s more to life than just the confines of the ship. The immense possibilities of the unknown immobilizes 1900 and he’s gripped by fear as he tells his friend Max,
“It wasn’t what I saw that stopped me Max, it was what I didn’t see. What I didn’t see is where the whole thing came to an end”.
Fear of change is a normal part of human development and even extraordinary people like 1900 have to face it over and over again.
Next Time You’re Facing Change Try Taking These Steps:
- If you want to begin to address these moments of immobilization try letting go to your heart. Not a simple concept, but one worth trying. The mind creates dualistic outcomes, the heart doesn’t know duality. When you let go to the heart you’ll stumble on more win-win outcomes that are joy-filled.
- Take your time with the decision or change that’s before you and don’t feel you have to “make it happen”.
- Reach out to others for help. Even the smallest transitions sometimes requires someone to help you cross the threshold. I like the Italian phrase introduced in the book and movie, Eat Pray and Love – Attraversiamo. It means “Lets cross over”. Your threshold probably isn’t as scary to me and my change issues are most likely okay for you. When we “cross over” this fear threshold together, we make embracing change a more graceful process.
