One of the things that amazes me as I look out my window and into the wooded hills and ravines surrounding my home is that every day, the view is different. The landscape changes. Buds unfurl into leaves. Leaves explode with color, wither and fall. Snow dusts my doorstep and wild turkeys peck at their reflection in the glass. Nothing stays the same for long.
That's true of nature and it's true of life. It's also becoming increasingly true due to technology, which has speeded up the pace of change to an almost dizzying degree.
Yet we spend an incredible amount of time trying to make things permanent!
Then, when the opportunity arises to spend time learning to adapt to change and even to embrace it, we say we don't have time!
There are many kinds of change. Incremental change. Sweeping change. Sudden, radical transformation. Some do take time, while others happen in a flash like lightning. In either case, time spent cultivating personal change and transformation is time well spent and wisely invested. Don't you agree?
Only through personal growth, self-improvement and exceptional inner knowledge can we learn to adapt to the new speed of change.
