Change is Good. And… Inevitable!

Harold W. Becker, Guest Author

It is funny that we tend to avoid and often fear change, even though it is the one constant and guaranteed aspect of life. Change is happening every moment both within and around us. From the atomic structure of the cells of our bodies to the celestial heavens of galaxies spiraling through galaxies, change is forever an aspect of energy in motion.

Yet, how do we view personal change, as positive growth or negative setbacks? Do we embrace change with open arms or fear the loss of control, routine, and sense of security we perceive in the status quo?

Embracing change with conscious awareness of change itself rewards us with new ideas, potentials and experiences. It is the shift of awareness from reactive to active (and conscious) participation.

In these days of rapidly evolving information, technology and global interaction, for example, we outwardly face a continuous stream of external change. It seems to be happening in all areas of our lives, like changes in health, career, spouses, friends, environment, geographic location, finances, cultural and political shifts, along with lifestyle concerns like nutrition, diet and exercise, and even our unspoken beliefs about death.

It is vital to retain a balanced perspective on life and to willingly embrace change. Although we have a tendency to believe all we see and hear, we are forgetting we are the ones who can and do qualify the energy of life. We qualify it by our thoughts and feelings, perceptions and beliefs. The significance in this realization is that we can affect personal change within our thoughts and feelings and we can also have a more positive impact on the world around us.

Life’s long and winding road can be stunningly beautiful and filled with joyful adventures. It can also be filled with drama, trauma and pain. We hold the key to experiencing either joy or struggle through our choice of intention. Which do you prefer?

Change Allows Us to Evolve…

change-is-the-essence-of-lifeConsciously embracing change is how we evolve. It begins when we start the process of going within and recognizing who we are at a deep level. Rather than solely pursuing our daily outer activities, maintaining stagnant routines, or perpetuating habits of generations, we can learn to tap our highest inner desires and manifest the things that bring us the greatest joy, individually and collectively.

Our unrealized potential is often limited by the beliefs we hold about life. We engage our grandest potential when we empower our thoughts and feelings by living from our heart. We still participate in our daily routine; however we begin to create all new perspectives and understandings. This is simply a matter of becoming aware of where we are placing our attention, and then learning how to change the focus of our attention when we wish to take on a different perspective. We can become solution oriented rather than problem centered. It is our choice.

Ultimately, our life journey is a personal one. Of course we share in our experiences with those around us like a spouse, partner, children, family, friends, co-workers and even strangers that help us to learn about our personal issues and beliefs. We also interact with our pets, environment, careers, culture and many other things in our daily experiences. Each encounter mirrors aspects of our consciousness, whether we are conscious of this or not. The journey can be as easy or as difficult as we desire: the solution is in our willingness to let go, embrace change and evolve our attitudes and perspectives.

The beauty is that our effort to grow and change is often met with new vistas of opportunities presently undreamed of. Things we never considered are now possible and even desirable. As we evolve our consciousness, the old ways of thinking and feeling actually become more dense and difficult to maintain and easier to release. Everything becomes lighter and brighter through a simple act of personal growth, acceptance and self awareness… and of course, unconditional love.
