Allowing Change the Easy Way

November 23, 2015 Thoughts

dolphin-socrates-quoteThis morning I was reflecting on the changes that have occurred in my life over the last few years.  I am a different person this morning to who I was 6 years ago in almost every way.  It started with changing my mind.  I was in a prison of my own making with the thoughts I was thinking.  I started very slowly.  Sometimes I felt like I was standing still, or even going backwards, yet I realise now that the whole time I was changing, one small step at a time.

I was reflecting on this because lately I have been pursuing change more aggressively, yet that seems to be backfiring a bit.  It is like the more we pursue something, whether change, happiness, love or peace, the further away it seems.  On reflection I realised that it was in the peaceful allowing that change happened, happiness happened, love happened.

I am going to slow down again, take my own advice, stop pursuing and start allowing by focusing on the learning and immersing myself in the subjects I wish to focus on, do the tasks that need to be done, and allow the changes to occur, because I know they will.  I have changed my whole life this way.  I will continue to do so, peacefully, completely and at a pace that is right for me.
