Crawling back

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

The conceptual part is where the old internal model returns time and time again to derail the process. It is impossible to describe how difficult it is to imagine all the permutations and possibilities of human relationships that arise when one truly accepts that organizations exist only in the mind; that they are no more than conceptual embodiments of the ancient rules of community. At this point it is so easy, so comfortable, so reassuring to avoid the difficulty by allowing old concepts to emerge camouflaged in new terminology. Breaking through the old eggshell to stand wet and shivering in a new world of possibilities is a frightful thing. Especially when crawling back is an option. (Dee Hock, Birth of the Chaordic Age)
