We do not often understand our tragedies, but rather sense that there is some change which needed to be made which we and others did not make---and the tragedies flow from the lack of needed change, growth, healthy truth and escape from some form of prison which we cannot see or understand. Often we are imprisoned by the paradigms which we worship as idols. We are imprisoned by our idolatry. Our exclusive paradigms lay upon us the burdens of excluding from our lives the healthy change and growth which painful truths might liberate us to enjoy. If our paradigms are dominated by collusive games of mutual self deception foretelling the immanent transcendence of our true limits, then we are chained to the walls of our prisons of collusive dishonesty. If our paradigms imprison us, then no technology which celebrates our paradigms will liberate us, no level of resource consumption will lift burdens from our souls, and no sophisticated scholarship will empower us to be free. If our paradigms deny the reality of our souls and the vitality of our spirits, then no cooperative efforts to fulfill our paradigms will resurrect our bodies, souls or spirits; and so we will continue to disintegrate as addictive individuals, families, churches, schools, organizations, businesses, societies and nations.
