A few pattern-interruption points from Talking Heads (from 1984):
“There is a finite number of jokes in the universe.”
“There is no music in space.”
“Cats like houses better than people.”
“Schools are for training people how to listen to other people.”
“Violence on television only affects children whose parents act like television personalities.”
“Table manners are for people who have nothing to do.”
“Civilization is a religion.”
“People will remember you better if always wear the same outfit.”
“In the future we will all drive standing up.”
“Adults think with their mouths open.”
“Passport pictures are what people really look like.”
“In the future it will be a relief to find a place without a culture.”
“When everything is worth money then money is worth nothing.”
“In the future love will be taught on television and by listening to pop songs.”
The future is, of course, always now. And the pattern-interruption advice from Talking Heads reveals the path to the present moment: “Stop making sense.”
Take yourself to the river of the now and drop your mind into the water of whatever is.
Break the pattern to resume your flow.
