Embracing Change

How resistant are you to change? How good are you just ‘going with the flow’? Better yet, are you able to embrace change?

Change happens all the time. In every moment, things are changing. Some changes are huge, some are small. Here’s the secret, it’s not the size of the change that matters, it’s the resistance you create to the change that makes a change easy or difficult. The more difficult the resistance, the more difficult the change, regardless of size.

Eckhart Tolle said “Accept– then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. This will miraculously transform your whole life.”

As soon as a change happens, it changes from the present to the past. When it becomes the past, you can’t change the past, so why fight against something you can’t change?

This one change in perspective can bring an amazing amount of peace, especially in times of change.
