Roll with the changes

I don’t know about you, but there’s been a lot of change happening in my life, and I don’t always welcome it, even though it often leads to something good.
As I was driving to Gainesville today, I listened to an episode of To The Best Of Our Knowledge, and part of it was this interview: http://ttbook.org/book/rupert-sheldrake-science-set-free. In it, Rupert Sheldrake talks about how scientists often live with set assumptions, and often flat-out refuse to explore possibilities which they “know” to be untrue.
I’m pretty sure I’ve been guilty of that from time to time, and I know plenty others have also. Anyway, I found the interview kind of liberating in a way, and  I would like to bring more open-mindedness to my life, most especially when it comes to change: to release the need to grasp and cling to the status quo; to ride the wave, rather than be pulled under.
The universe capped things off for me by playing REO Speedwagon’s “Roll With The Changes” the instant I changed the radio station. 😀
