Dr. John Chuback – Make Your Own Damn Cheese

Aired Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST

In 2005, the group Dream Theater released a song written by member John Petrucci with a stirring and penetrating lyric:

“Look around
Where do you belong?
Don’t be afraid
You’re not the only one
Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let the day go by in doubt
The answer lies within… “

If the answer lies within, how can we get it out? If we feel trapped by boundaries of our own making, how may we go beyond and build anew. Perhaps most importantly, how may we overcome a fear so captivating that many would rather remain in the status quo than achieve their dreams?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. John Chuback, addressed these ideas in a wonderful allegory of a mouse in a maze and the wisdom that opened its eyes. John A.
