Change creates a space in which something new can occur.
“I am safe in the world. I am comfortable with change and growth.”
Repetitive patterns are meant to be broken. As old beliefs and behaviors become outmoded, our soul will seek new experiences. The mind, fearing the unknown, will create obstacles, reasons to procrastinate or “what if?” scenarios that paralyze. Sometimes, a thunderous shift will occur in one’s experience that forces a change. In those moments, the awakened soul will turn and greet it with conscious awareness knowing that resistance creates needless pain and confusion.
Acceptance allows us to see more clearly. Rather than getting caught up in the mechanisms of the mind, we look within to find the lesson, inspiration and insight. Walking forward, we have an opportunity to expand into new levels of consciousness.
“There is a great value in doing new things, not just for diversion or escape, but in order to help us awaken. When we put ourselves in a new or foreign situation, that very act awakens our senses, our awareness, our presence. Sometimes we have to take a leap in order to experience and heal the fear that holds us ever at the edge of familiar safety. Our task in awakening is to go against the grain of our mechanical tendencies.”
Today my intention is to choose to experience this moment, and all it contains, with ease and grace.
