Pattern Interruption Hall of Fame: people that wake us up from monotony of mindlessness. These are iconoclasts, straight-shooters, rascal sages, and eccentric oddballs of all walks of mind - i.e. the denizens of the brave new world of self-aware unorthodoxy.
Michael Moore has tons of pattern interruption chutzpah. Michael Moore is the kind of Patriot that's not afraid to look like a Scud. Whether you agree with his opinions or not, he's been a walking, film-making Statue of Liberty, reminding us all of our freedom of thought, and modeling the power of individual action. Thanks, Mike!
Notes on Pattern Interruption:
Pattern interruption leverages mindfulness by way of new information and confusion. How new information changes our minds is clear. Here's how confusion comes into the picture. Confusion means loss of certainty. Loss of certainty means open-mindedness to what is. As such, a pattern break is a pre-requisite for mindful presence. Pattern break confuses the conditioned mind and in so doing gets it out of its own way, opening up new vistas of clarity. In other words, when mind is closed off to new information, confusion helps kick that door wide open. In sum, mind is a closed-system pattern, interrupt it to open it! Expose yourself to new information. Update your understanding of the world to prevent dogmatic stagnation. Remember: reality updates with every now!
