It might help me keep my feet on the ground! And I hope it will help and inspire you in some way too.
Like a sudden, dramatic fall storm, change seems to be popping out of nowhere and everywhere. Is change touching or disrupting your life too?
Listening to one of the interviews in the Earth Changes series at Evolving Beings gave me a new perspective on change. Apparently, there are many powerful planetary and astrological shifts in play at this time – like the Comet Elenin and the Uranas – Pluto Square (2011 – 2016). These forces are shaking things up quite a bit for individuals and society. Witness the Wall Street protests as one example.
It seems like a really good time to learn to dance with change, don’t you think? We’re in this together so let’s support one another.
Trust, receptivity, living consciously, being responsible for your actions, coming from the heart, and realizing a sense of connectedness with all others will help you navigate these stormy seas. Change itself is not good or bad. It just is. We can decide to flow with it or resist. My initial temptation is to resist, but my aspiration and intention is to flow.
Flowing with Change
On a personal level, change threw me for a loop in September. Believe me, anything you think will never change can and may indeed change. It can happen in a flash. What seemed familiar can instantly seem oddly unfamiliar and even foreign.
I felt the rug pulled out from under me, but it woke me right up to the truth of impermanence. How could I have forgotten? Holding on to a cozy, happily ever-after scenario will never work. Everything changes at one point or another.
