Change hurts, it moves yet immobilizes the recipient, causes fear, strikes the funny bone, and we all know the funny bone is not so funny! Change is scary and dismissive from what we once had or held a desire and worked so hard for. At one time, our life felt comfortable and abundant and then suddenly, what we knew to be true, secure, and safe is ripped from underneath our feet and we’re changed. Just like that! We are changed; emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually, biologically, physiologically, our chemistry is different, our location is unfamiliar, our mind is twisted, our thought process upside down, our perspective obliterated, all of it, changed.
Perhaps, now looking back through the terrorizing cycle we can begin to see through all that, we become a little more whole then we were before, much greater than from when we started to spin. Maybe that’s why change becomes so necessary and an integral part of vitality, because it brings us to a more profound and prolific state of being, whether we like it or not. It’s the command of fate. Fate comes in and spins the wheel of life, tosses you to and fro, spits in your eye, stings you where it hurts, then leaves you just as quickly as it came in and you’re changed.
Change chips away at the ego, brings out the inner child frantically and brings us closer to God. We pray when change comes screaming through the door; we shrink back a little and become vulnerable. To me, being vulnerable is always scary because you’re exposed in truth. You’re required to be completely honest and really look at what’s in front of you. The truth is, change is reality and reality can suck sometimes; yet, it continues its cycle of life with or without you and in spite of itself. You have no choice but to be softer with yourself and your circumstances. Life, now, becomes a tender place in time where you let go of defenses, drop masks, abandon agendas, and sink into truth that is pure and simple. It's an experience of self that is stripped down to its essence in a complete, all-encompassing magnificent moment, that is all you, the whole you.
It takes courage to change, to stand completely as you are in the present moment that you are. It means you must be willing to disarm the self in an intimate moment of connection. It is the sum total and complete feeling system of your inner strength, whether it’s fully accepted and integrated or not. To allow change is to be vulnerable; to be vulnerable is to be real, to be honest, to exist in this world in truth and to reverberate within the cells, even after you're gone. You can taste truth in your mouth, it's powerful and when it penetrates your being, it releases the energetic blocks that held you back. That's why it makes you shake or feel scared or even cry... It’s a process that reveals who you are at the essence of creation. So, to change, to feel vulnerable, is actually the energy needed to recognize and realize your full potential and complete your authentic self. That is your power and your power is immense, it's humbling and it deserves great honor.
