How Do You Relate to Change?
Change is a constant in our world -- and in fact is accelerating as we move into Ascension. Nevertheless, we humans hate it. Because change hurts.
We lock ourselves into beliefs and patterns designed to keep our status quo in place. But when they are threatened or stretched to the breaking point, we're feel the pain that comes with breaking our attachment to the familiar.
Little do we know that status quo by definition must change if it is to keep up with the changes going on in us.
With change our warm security blanket is torn away, replaced with the chaos and uncertainty of the unknown. Instead of being able to sit back and enjoy our nice, easy existence, we're ripped from our reverie and thrust into a strange, new world where we must start all over again.
That change is inevitable, however. For the status quo forms from the way we were, the product of the beliefs and practices of our past. But the past is past; what we were is not what we are now, nor what we will become, and what served us then will probably be insufficient to meet our needs now.
Is it possible to get our outer world ahead of the curve, to change in anticipation of what we are and will become? Sure. In fact, this is what happens, and why the status quo always seems under attack.
Reality is constantly reforming itself to meet our ever-changing needs, manifesting the building blocks we need to apply our creative energies in new and expanding ways.
As a result, we don't have to break up the status quo. That will happen on its own. The question is, how will we relate to the process when it occurs?
If we try to fight change, either in us or by holding on to the continually-disintegrating (and reforming) status quo, we exacerbate the pain of letting go of the familiar and bring greater turmoil and chaos to an already-tumultuous process.
If we embrace change, then we instead can work with and within reality to expand our awareness of who we are, what we are about and how we can interact with the outer world in new ways.
Change, then, is the servant of consciousness. It is both means and end to explore our relationship to the wholeness at our core as well as the rest of creation that surrounds us.
So if you truly want to live in peace despite these changing times, you might try to accept that they are simply a reflection of your changing inner landscape, and consider what kind of relationship you want to establish between your inner and outer worlds.
If you want them to be at war, then go ahead and fight. If not, look for another way.
The choice as always remains yours.
