Cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by someone who tries to hold two opposing views—someone who chooses to live in a way that actions contradict beliefs. This you do not want because it causes stress, wears you down, and pushes you into a dark realm of secrecy.
To seek change in the future is to choose the suffering of cognitive dissonance now. If you know something is good, right, or true now—and if you are committed to honesty and transparency—then you must align your reality with what you know to be true.
Rather than resisting change, just open your heart and mind to absorb it. Hide nothing, so that this eternal now becomes the field upon which all ideas, situations, relationships and realities effortlessly unfold. Here knowledge is no longer delayed, and confusion is no longer part of your life, because everything in your life is instantly integrated and experienced.
To delay change is to delay growth, to delay improvement, to resist knowledge by making experience impossible. And for what? To suffer in an ongoing state of cognitive dissonance? Change can be effortless, but only if it is now. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
