Life Between Two Paradigms: Need a “Paradigm Shift?”

“It is not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear. . .  It’s like being in between trapezes.  It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer.  There’s nothing to hold on to.” — Marilyn Ferguson

Psychotherapy patients often report that they became aware that the software they downloaded from parental and authority figures contained much in the way of racism, ignorance,  bigotry, shame, and self-defeating patterns. Realizations such a these are sometimes motivating for a person to enroll in classes and/or entering psychotherapy in hopes that a healthy paradigm shift is accomplished.

These transitions to a healthier paradigm can be threatening and disruptive. It is, indeed, like Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. Take the leap!
