“Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you.
And do not worry that your life is turning upside down.
How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
My resistance to change shows up the most when the change has not been initiated by myself or when I feel uncomfortable with the changes or I'm not in favor of what's happening. Often the fight against the change costs me precious energy and time. I'm continuing to learn to let go of that which I can't control, to remember to trust in live's flow and to practice being ok with the discomfort of the shifts.
Change can happen slowly over time or can be sudden. Some changes are subtle and others are drastic. Some may spur positive emotions and feelings and others negative. At times we may experience drastic changes and other times we may have little shifting in our lives. We may embrace change at times and at times we may have eversion to them. Changes may effect us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. While we may have influence over some changes, others we may need to surrender to.
Our lives are full of changes! It's important that we stay engaged with live's transitions and seek practices and tools that support us in moving mindfully through them.
Please join me this week in watching for energy leaks around change and cultivating trust in the changes that come our way. In addition, let's grow a sense of compassion for ourselves and others as we navigate the many changes in life. May you have a great week.
