4. The Law of Growth
“Wherever you go, there you are. For US to grow in SPIRIT, it is WE who must change, and not the people, places or things around us. The only given we have in our lives is ourselves, and that is the only factor we have control over. When we change who and what we are within our heart, our life changes too.”
Society, nature, our minds, our bodies, ourselves all revolve around evolution. If we choose to stop evolving, we are operating at a slower pace than the rest of the world. How, in that case, would it be possible for us to achieve anything? If we are resistant to change, we are ignorant to the world around us. Nothing in your life will ever stay the same, as it should be, as you shouldn’t expect it too. In order for you and I to be okay with those changes, to accept things as they are, we must adapt to our surroundings. I do personally believe it is not our whole selves who change when we adapt. I think we are created with a core belief system and that those beliefs are within us at all times throughout our lives, but they can be nurtured or neglected in separate situations. By adapting to the things we cannot control, we are not going against our core beliefs, we are not going against who we are. What we are doing, is evolving those beliefs and evolving the person we have become. Some changes are easier to accept than others, but if you are able to go with the flow, and be open to the constant motion of life, the path you are on will be easier to travel down.
After all, the only constant is change.
