We humans are slow to change and grow. I think pretty much all of my friends and associates would love to be more awake and aware. If for no other reason than it just makes better sense financially, physically, and socially to know more--to be more aware. We make better choices the more awake, (or, "woke") we are.
The problem is not that we don't want to change and grow.
The problem is we're afraid we'll change and diminish.
It's the DIMINISH feeling that has us second guessing our choices. It's a fear-based idea, of course, and has no reality at all.
However, if we all had it all figured out all the time, we'd never eat factory farmed meat and processed foods again.
But hey. Here we are at Applebee's.
