Gray is the most vibrant color.
We continue talking about dealing with the unknown today by talking about our discomfort with it. Most of our political, religious, and economic systems produce dogmas that attempt to paint this universe as black and white. Nothing could be further from the truth.
As we’ve talked about the past couple of days, we inherently live in a realm of unknowns. Even most of our supposed “knowns” are built on a whole host of unverifiable assumptions. Yet, we persist in this desire to separate reality into black and white.
The gray area is not only our profound reality, if we’re honest. It’s also the most vibrant color available to us. Now I know we usually think of gray as a drab color. However, in terms of living in the divide between black and white dogmas, gray is where all the vibrancy of life lives. It’s where miracles happen and possibilities emerge that simply are not available to us in a black and white mindset.
Some may see the gray areas of life as a danger zone of immorality or a lack ethics. That’s how we often discuss gray areas in our popular discourse. It’s true. That’s a risk in the gray areas of life. Yet, all that is transformative lives there too.
Black and white thinking forever keeps us stuck in our same mindsets with our same problems and our same outcomes.
If you choose to make something better of yourself or your world, you’ll have to become comfortable living in the gray area and seeing it as the only field of pure potentiality available to you. You’ll have to lose your discomfort with it or live pinned to the limitations of black and white.
It may seem frightening to let go of your supposed black and white safety zone. Martin Luther King, Jr. offered some good advice.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
