The Time Is NowApr 20, 2021
Are you open to change? Are you ready to change? So many of us are afraid of change, but what are we so afraid of? The unknown perhaps…
The definition of change: To make different; cause a transformation; an event that occurs when something passes from one state to another; losing one's original nature; become different in essence.
Change is inevitable. Life is about transitions, yet many of us attempt to live in a ‘don't rock the boat' environment. Most of us like to feel a sense of safety and security in our lives. This sense of security is maintained by things feeling as if they are constant and unchanging. A certain amount of routine is vital for everyone; however, resistance to change is a dead-end street.
If you are neither coming nor going you are stagnant. The fear of change doesn't just hold us back, it stops us from truly living... Albert Einstein once said; “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Amidst all that is taking place in the world right now we can not afford to continue going down the same path. Our beliefs have created mental barriers and a great divide causing violence, ignorance, and intolerance. From the pandemic to the riots, from the economy to the elections and more… our senses are being overwhelmed and bombarded, and the repercussions are currently affecting our state of health and well being.
When nothing is stable, the hardest thing to do is keep our strength and stay grounded. However, now more than ever this is exactly what we must do. It’s a time to stay spiritually fit. It’s time to see our life lessons in every situation, no matter how intolerable it may seem. It’s time for us to take a good look in the mirror and take responsibility for how we are showing up. Be honest. Are you adding to the problem? Are you a part of the solution?
Change begins from within. It’s time to think outside the box. Redefine your parameters. Be the change you wish to see in the world. It is time for us to come together as one and embrace this opportunity for growth.
We can resist the change, get caught up in a whirlwind and feel very uncomfortable, or we can learn how to cast fear aside and embrace the seasons of change. Let us use nature's wisdom to grow through life's inevitable ups and downs. It’s time to tap into our inner resources, take risks, move past limitations, and be open to what lies ahead.
The time is now. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.
