“Change and momentariness is inevitable…only when we have a clear vision of this flux and our place in it does our effort mean something. Some of the change we can influence, some we cannot. Our fundamental hope lies is in affecting the change that IS US.”
David Reynolds, Ph.D. author of Water Bears No Scars
“Here is one more–“Their is nothing permanent except change.” Heraclitus, Greek Philosopher
Reflection: So true. I can remember trying to get a friend of mine to start running. It was then that I decided if you accept the other person as they are; you give them the space and time to decide on their own. Support is more powerful than demands. To paraphrase Gandhi –be the change you want to be. That’s why trying to manage change is not a very productive use of my energy. Acceptance of reality and ambiguity is better than deluding yourself into thinking that things can be certain in life. Living with ambiguity leaves you less stressed and more free to just experience and enjoy the “here and now”.
