Why is it so hard for us to embrace and accept change when it is inevitability going to come? Wish I had the answer to that one! We must learn to accept change and learn from our mistakes along the way. There was a story about a man who was convinced that he was dead.He went to see a psychiatrist but nothing the doctor told him would change his mind about him believing he was dead. Finally the doctor said to him,"You know that dead people don't bleed, don't you?" The man replied "Yes" The doctor then stuck him with a pin and he bleeds. "Well, what do you know?" said the patient. "Dead men do bleed afterall." That shows just how far we will sometimes go to keep from accepting change.But I believe if we are truly going to be happy then we must take the things that are making us miserable and "change" them. Or a t least accept that we must change our way of reacting to those things so they no longer will have power over us. One of my favorite authors Kahlil Gibran once stated :"I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind. Yet strange I am ungrateful to these teachers." I think he is trying to tell us that change is necessary but we dont necessarily have to "like" the changes or the ones who brought the changes into our lives. The only thing constant in this life is change so we may as well learn to go with the flow and do the best we can no matter what changes we are faced with. I sincerely hope all the changes in your life will be "easy" to accept and will make you a better human being.I leave you now with thoughts of perfect love, perfect peace, and perfect oneness.May your day be a good one! And please try and do something nice for someone today!
