homeostasis

“the maintenance of equilibrium within a social group, person, etc.”

we tend to revert back to what we know

whether good, bad or otherwise, we work to keep things the ‘same’

I know this homeostatic effect
– it’s comfortable
– it’s predictable
– it’s safe

(un)knowingly, I pursue this ‘sameness’

as new variables are introduced, I adjust accordingly

anything to remain in control

but now I’ve named it – this tendency to revert back

let us not throw out the proverbial baby

however, let us not be afraid to drain the bathwater

because babies grow up

and maturity is the goal

and it’s time to get out of the tub

are we merely homeostatic?

or are we willing for the sake of Christ to be uncomfortable, unpredictable and risky?
