If we can accept the fact that big life changes bring us into metaphase with our soul’s journey they become much easier to grip. Change is difficult for many of us. It can mean that we may have to leave our comfort zone and embrace a new way of life. It can also be as simple as learning a new way to do something. One of the hardest things for us to evolve into is learning how to think in a different way.
A life lived that only knows one type of person, religion, political party or town would seem unfathomable to most of us. The world is at our fingertips through books, the internet and social interactions. The truth is many are listening to others to react instead of respond. Quick to judge and blame without working out the solutions. Solutions mean change when something isn’t quite right. Change can take a great deal of compromise and compassion. Standing by our beliefs and being true to ourselves is important in honoring our purposes but it’s equally important that we are willing to listen.
A child who is anxious about going to a new school can see change as a threat to their safe environment and the fear of the unknown. Social anxiety about meeting others and being accepted all come with changing our thoughts about the event being fun instead of foreboding. When we feel supported and safe things seem much more acceptable and we can learn to walk through the fear.
Someone who is retiring from a job they loved may fear boredom or not feeling purposeful. Another way to look at the changing environment is with excitement at all the possibilities for the future. Starting a business, volunteering, traveling, or taking a new class can all be great experiences. Change can bring in new life, ideas, and thought processes we’ve never had time to consider before. Our creative selves have a chance to create.
Other life changes are much heavier and deeper for us to process. Losing people we love and learning how to live without their physical presence is one of the hardest things for most of us to do. It changes our day to day living and sharing with other beings. Grief can change our thoughts, minds and hearts without us realizing the effect our emotional state is having on our heartstrings. The changes we go through with grief can cause us to reach out and help others going through the same thing. Our experience becomes a source of new empathy for our souls to grow upon and we are changed forever.
We have all encountered people who refuse to change their minds, even though they have all the evidence they could be wrong. It can be frustrating and perplexing to deal with the human ego. The need to be right or have control can prevent us from seeing the truth in many situations. If we are looking at situations objectively, fairly and with our hearts instead of needing to be right, we evolve our minds to vibrate on a higher level. Once we have let in new thoughts and ideas, we open the door for new creations, innovations and conversations. Our dreams and hopes for the future are still alive, now fluid and open to new and better ways to bring it about when we are listening and aware.
Change Changes Things
Lyrics by The Stereophonics (Jones, Jones & Cable)
“Change of a record
Sing me something blue
A change in your job
Or did your job change you?
Children change a marriage
Change is something new
Money changes everything
But it doesn't improve your view
A change for the better
But you’ve got too much to lose
Change your religion
Well it depends on you
You can change
You can change
You can change
Change changes things, Change changes you”
We can change our minds, our hearts and our lives even if we are not able to control all the events that challenge us. The spiritual evolution of humanity depends on our ability to adapt with empathy, courage and compassion for all that is life as it changes. No matter how big or small, it matters.
