|Important life lesson from Mr. Zappa|
The world needs brave individuals to break out of current ways of thinking, question authority, and challenge unjust laws and practices. Many are heeding the call.
There are a growing number of rebels and free thinkers out there conducting exciting and fruitful experiments in alternate forms of low-impact, high-quality living. Some of them read this blog. They are breaking free of their cultural programming and living simple, more sustainable lifestyles, contrary to the hubris and greed around them.
Many NBA readers, and others, refrain from the damaging ways that society considers 'normal'. They are deviating from the norm, and thank goodness for that. In doing so, they are creating healthier norms, fueling progress, and realizing a better world.
As Bruce Cockburn said, "The trouble with normal is it only gets worse." I am sure Frank Zappa would have agreed.
So what are you waiting for? Deviate from the norm today. Don't do what is expected. Be bold, be yourself. Make progress possible. It's fun.
