Post Modern to Where?

Over the course of this blog’s life I have often taken the road into abstract spaces – religiousdeconstructionhappiness and resiliency. On other blogs I’ve written about how the post modern condition affected notions of leadership and organizational behavior. As a searcher – learner by nature – I expected that at some point all these various tactics would expose an implicit statement about where I was going – exposing the decaying modernist I yet hold within .

Going someplace is a very modern notion – it suggest progress – a point – utopia. The post modern themes that are part of these many statements decry these notions. Until know I simply thought of my state as a paradoxical mood – a kind of infestation of my spirit. The until I saw the following video.

It proposes that the Post Modern mood is only another step along a path to “Now”. In many religious traditions to being in this moment – the Now – is a state of Grace.

About Reputationist

When I started this blog in 2007 the following is what I was up to - things have changed - some. I'm what my handle states - an Oldude. The problem with this acknowledgment is my thinking and ambitions have not quite got the message of my "oldness". I've started an online Coaching practice and my rant is about how to improve long term happiness - For the World. My thing, I believe I can change the world - isn't that a hoot. The way I intend to change the world is to foster a wider and deeper appreciation for "mindfulness": The daring, flair and grace of Jayz; the political savvy of Cornel West; the creativity of Mos Def with the business and cultural daring of Richard Simmons. I've thought enough - being a philosopher of sorts - and trained hard with some of the sharpest minds ever on the planet - Cornel West and Michel Foucault to know the total absurdity of trying to change the world - but I do and I will. There it is showing my age again.
