A perverse nature of stability, too, is that sometimes we can have too much stability. If you’ve ever heard someone say, “I’m bored. Life is boring. It’s all I do. I have my house.” and they have a lovely house and a lovely car and lovely children and their life is boring. And I think in a lot of cases, they are suffering form an excess of stability. They don’t have enough change, enough transition, in their lives. We strive so hard and so long for that stability that sometimes we actually end up getting trapped by it. Because we get there, it’s like (deep sigh) “Aaaaahhh. Now I never have to think about it again.” Well, you do that for about 2 months and then you start to go mad, because life becomes boring. Without change, life is boring. Without transition, life is boring.
