Shaking Up Our Worldview

— Rev. Corinne Crockett


I am curious and vulnerable as I explore paradoxes in my life.

Paradox calls us to be both curious and vulnerable. In our society, we are often taught that knowing and being right is more important than curiosity. We are also taught that we should only show the best parts of ourselves to the world, giving people the social media highlight reel rather than the behind-the-scenes mess that often exists. Yet playing with paradoxes offers us the ability to stay open to many perspectives, to not know, and to be vulnerable and uncertain. Approaching the unanswerable questions of the Universe with playfulness provides us with a unique opportunity to simply be, without needing to be right, or even know what right is.

Join us this Sunday, October 15, 2023 at 10:30am PT at Studio 9, 1180 Houghton Road, Kelowna, BC. Doors open at 10:15am. Please visit the event page for more details and a map. Everyone is welcome!

If you are not feeling well, please take good care of yourself and watch us on Facebook Live.


This Week’s Science of Mind Theme

Shaking Up Our Worldview

Paradox naturally leads us to a place of curiosity. When we let go of our attachment to one way or another and open to a place of recognizing the benefits and possibilities of the both/and, we can then approach challenges, obstacles, and problems with a sense of curiosity.

In the double slit experiment, quantum physicists discovered that electrons behaved as a wave, with infinite possibilities available, until observed. At the point of observation, the wave collapses into a particle and follows a single track of existence. Just like these electrons, our goal is to use curiosity to stay in possibility and potentiality for as long as possible.

Staying open and remaining curious and neutral is a very vulnerable space to be in because it is the commitment to staying uncertain. It can be challenging to remain in the space of questioning that comes with living a life in possibility and potentiality rather than knowing and certainty. Luckily for us there are many tools that have been provided to us to continue to practice having a paradox mindset and remaining open at the top.
