 "We are living in a culture that views change as threatening. We are taught to perceive life as linear, implying a destination. Change is perceived as only an intermediary process on our way to this idealized stability. But no matter how we are raised to view life, life is change. To see change as the normal condition of life goes directly against the myth of destination, yet meshes more perfectly with experience. When we see change as the normal condition of life we stand in revolt against the expectation of a final goal for our lives and cease to view process as threatening or temporary. To accept change frees us to explore our situation, to define and observe our natural restrictions, and not to be coerced by expectations arising out of society's need for equilibrium."
