Hustle, bustle, move, get down, go there, come here...and we're just talking about our thoughts, let alone our actions. "Slow down.", they tell us, "But there's still so much to be done.", we say; rarely considering the burn out we are waltzing into. The thought is always at the back of our minds, far behind the never ending list of things to do. "I'll slow down when I'm dead.", someone once said. But where's the fun in that?
Although change is constant, we have this uncanny ability to resist it. We literally fuel the changes we encounter yet manage to conjure up feeling and emotions of surprise. How about we begin consciously opening ourselves up to the possibilities of change. "How can this be done?"
Throughout our lives, we have formed our foundation, or what I call, our soul's current support system. Our foundation has been shaped, molded, broken and pieced back together with our experiences, lessons learned, and other environmental influences. To make large sudden changes can shake or even break our foundation. However, if we were to, say, expect or even openly accept the changes happening to us and around us, we can avoid the crisis that would normally ensue.
The easiest way to begin opening your mind to recognizing and accepting impending changes is to say to yourself or out loud, "I recognize and accept impending changes." That's it, thanks for tuning in, see you later folks. In reality, we like to convince ourselves that not only facing changes are difficult, but also that we, ourselves, don't have the time, capacity nor the resources to change. All of those things are false. The more we repeat those false statements, the more our thoughts, actions, and our lives reflect them. It is true, simple acts make the largest impacts in our lives; if we would only get out of our own way so that we can see the positive changes.
Changes are necessary for growth. Make the effort to repeat this statement to yourself each day and watch for amazing events, carried out in your best interest, take hold.
"I recognize and accept impending changes."
Let us be Present. Let us be of Light. Let us be of Love.
