Embracing Change—The Key to Freedom
We are living in a state of flux and we are being tested…our reactions to inner and outer circumstances matter. The way we perceive change–welcome it and dance with it–willmaterialize physically. We know that resisting change is futile; it leaves us battered and broken. But embracing change, being fluid, can open our observant, curious and loving hearts.
“Common sense would tell us that we should evaluate relative existence, with all its changes, and try to see how beneficial change is to us. We can still live in the changes, and change the changes; that is the secret of life. What do we change? We change that which is forever changing into changelessness, wherein stability could be found.
The fear of facing the future, or turning away from that with which we are so familiar, is a sure sign of instability. It is a sure sign of a lack of faith, it is a sure sign in the disbelief of Divinity.
What prevents us from wanting to change? What prevents us from remaining in the suffering and yet inwardly we would like to get away from the suffering? And yet we are so tied down, bogged down, because of what we have been conditioned by.”
–Gururaj Ananda Yogi (Change, UK78-8)
