However it’s brought to our attention, I believe there will be points along our journey when change is necessary. If we are adamant against change then we are denying our own growth. There we remain, stilted and stagnant. And even when we try to use our logical mind to support our resistance, we know deep inside that we are subjecting ourselves to a life that’s not fulfilling its potential.
There are times in my life when, all of my own accord, I readily release my worries and follow the flow of change. And then there are times when I try to remain seated behind the walls of resistance, thinking myself safe and smart in doing so. The former, almost always, leads me down an easier path. The latter generally requires the Universe to make my life so miserable that I literally feel pushed out from behind the wall.
Knowing all of this as I do one would think I would never fall prey to throwing up resistance of any kind, and yet that is not the case. I, like many of you, abhor the fear that encompasses certain changes. Inevitably, fear is always trying to show me why the change is necessary if I’m to grow into a fuller expression of myself or enjoy a long-awaited for dream, Even so, my reaction is to analytically process matters, then harden instead of release.
As humans we always want to know what rests around the corner. We want to know if our decisions are one’s that will bring about the outcomes we want most to see. Truthfully, faith says you must live without knowing in advance. Faith says to trust first, then you will see. But I must warn you, don’t accidentally trust your fear as a harbinger that change is not good and necessary. Trust that fear is revealing your deepest concerns; not so you’ll be a prisoner to them, but so you’ll identify the truth behind the fear, heal, then let go; growing stronger and wiser from the process.
If possible, dear reader, the best road is always the former; the one where you listen to your heart. It won’t lead you astray. Your heart will always take you in the direction of your purpose, your bliss, and those smiles that seem to spring from nowhere. But even if you have accidentally passed that road and are now faced with a road more daunting, the same support that showed you the easier road by way of promptings from the heart is with you now. Instead of sandals you may need to wear boots to walk it, but you’ll be fine. The two roads take you to the same place, if you allow it.
In many ways I believe we create our fate. Perhaps its our higher self that drops the dream within our mind or causes our heart to spring to life, but it is for us to make the change.
