Harnessing Chaos in a Risk-averse World

 “Chaos, leave me never. Keep me wild and keep me free so that my brokenness will be the only beauty the world will see.” ~ R. M. Drake

Chaos, that often misunderstand, but vitally important, aspect of healthy balance. But it’s all a matter of perspective. Chaos isn’t just complete disorder and confusion, it is also the birthplace of order. The state in which the caterpillar is annihilated in the cocoon.

The place where the Phoenix is born, again and again. It’s a vital humus for creativity. Even regarding human imagination, it’s the state of mind where No mind and mindfulness intersect to become awe-inspired curiosity and wonder.

The ability to harness chaos in a risk-averse world could very well be the difference between progress and stagnation. Progressing in a healthy way requires us to embrace strategic risk and disciplined anarchy.

It’s tapping into that juicy spot between chaos and order, between courage and comfort, between adventure and banality. So that stagnation and entropy don’t erode our potential for living a life well-lived. So that we don’t fall into the trap of the “unexamined life” that Socrates warned us about.
