As inevitable as change is in our lives, it can still be hard to accept. When I think of all the ways life has changed over past few decades, I start to see that for as much of a pain as change can be sometimes, humans are adaptable and over time we can even forget that things had been different. Seat belts, computers, turning right on a red light - we take these for granted now and have even come to enjoy and appreciate them, but for many of us they took some getting used to.
When you wake up in the morning, you're not the same person you were when you went to bed the night before. Cells renew, your brain had a chance to relax and renew, your body detoxed. Change to your body occurred while you slept.
Each new day brings change. You learn new things through conversations, observation or through your own exploration and experimentation.
You're not the same person from one day to the next mentally or physically - you're always changing.
So if we're changing internally and the world around us is changing, it would make sense that our expectations for ourselves would have to change as well. The question is, do you see change from a place of fear and rigidity or can you view it from the perspective of opportunity and flow?
How you accept change, or don't, can be a function of your thoughts and beliefs. Change is a part of life and seeing it as an opportunity to explore new ways of being moves us away from suffering and toward the wonder of life itself.
All around us life is in constant motion, always changing, never staying the same. Sometimes we like it and sometimes we don't, but we always have a choice as to how we want to be with it.
In love and light,
