How is it that we can direct ourselves to have boundaries? How is that we can present and yet remain independent?
A golfer is bound by rules that determine how he drives the ball. If a golf ball falls outside of play, a penalty is incurred. I would attest there are boundaries in the real world which stop you in your tracks.
Boundaries contain, and keep you in the entirety of the whole amid which you are active. Boundaries, I think today, are generally inflexible enough that your position remains in one spot, from which you are not to tread much further. There is an art to subtly crossing them, and if you do persist in your advancement, you must continually drive back the idea that you are right about it, and that there has been no transgression.
Every individual is surely subject to boundaries. We strive to maintain the largest boundaries which feel are ours, and we exercise caution when straying into new or otherwise unknown boundaries. Each step we take is contained by boundaries, some of which exist solely in the mind of the one in motion, some of which are tangible outside that which the individual perceives. It must be hoped it is evident you are undertaking the challenge of crossing them.
It is a grid, I think, that keeps us feeling “safe.” Often, we are a part of a structure that is tacitly organized. There are enough of us interested in remaining in place that we are evading the more turbulent sorts of disorder.
We count on others to remain regulated and to be interested in being regulated. The grid is laden on us so that we have fewer problems by which we manage ourselves. These grid phenomena are common to us.
We feel we thrive if we see life in similar terms to what I am discussing as an advantage. We enjoy ourselves best if we are cooperative with one another to keep us in check. We know that if we tire of our environment, we are permitted to move on.
However, the most we readily accomplish is that we trade our circumstances, which keep us staying put, for similar though fresher digs. Wherever are, we most often choose to remain inside the unit amid which we are already prospering, because we respect the place we’ve reached. We enjoy what we have because there are so many chances to improve it.
It is here that we grow. Boundaries can be creative. Often, boundaries attain cohesion because so many people evince similar behavior.
More often than not, common characteristics among people mean we participate in similar activities at the same time and in the same way. We check our boundaries, and we exercise them.
