“Open your mind, expand your character to embrace the world. Then you will find guidance along the path.”
~R. L. Wing, from the I Ching Workbook~
Life is quite simply this: interconnected, continuous, transformative movement.
Whether your life situation is challenging or beautiful, remember that “This too shall pass.” Life, by it’s literal definition, is the process of adapting to change.
Change is often messy. Our attention brings everything to the surface so that we can examine, discard or renew. Consider how cleaning out a closet creates temporary chaos in that particular room. Everything gets out of joint, but the end result is a space that has benefited from your attention and energy. It’s often the same with our spiritual, emotional and mental transformation. Upheaval leads to peace.
The thunderbolt of change has the ability to awaken us to new levels of perception immediately. The opposite of a gentle rising in consciousness, sudden shifts dramatically shake up our world in ways that are unexpected, and always… always! a gift is waiting to be discovered. See each moment as simply a gathering of new information and be willing to receive – this journey of awakening is merely the beginning of a glorious transformation.
