No matter what the moment presents, we are faced with deciding how it’s going to go. Either (A) we allow the moment to become the context for our decisions, or (B) we expand the context of who/what we are from within which we make choices that redefine the moment. Perhaps not as familiar, habituated or easy as (A) might appear to be, (B) has a future that just might allow us to thrive.
Yuval Noah Harari is not known for the easy lines of enquiry and he is known for the provocative ones. His work is not intended to bring us comfort – it is intended to press us forward into a future grounded in Self-discovery and affected by our willingness to ‘do the work’ at a much higher level of thinking.
We really do become what we think about.
