Extraordinary Minute- 11/20

“We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all  the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly  changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of    dissent.  We must dare to think about 'unthinkable things' because when  things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.“

J. William Fulbright

Wow!  My awareness of the late Senator Fulbright has always been narrowed to the scholarship program named after him.  Clearly, speaking of awareness, he can communicate timeless truths.

This seems to be a time of too much communication and I believe one outcome of that reality is that we narrow our awareness just in order to survive mentally and emotionally.  The risk is obvious: our attitudes and approaches to life become rigid and unable to effectively deal with the increasingly rapid pace of change.

“Options and possibilities” rule!  What are yours?  Do let us know by commenting.

With love and respect,
