You Want To Live In A Life With No Change, And That Is Not Possible....

Misery arises because we don't allow change to happen; we cling, we want things to be static. If you love a woman you want her tomorrow too, the same way as she is yours today. That's how misery arises. Nobody can be certain about the next moment. What to say about tomorrow?

A man of awareness knows that life is constantly changing. Life is change. There is only one thing permanent and that is change. Everything else except change changes. To accept the nature of life, to accept this changing existence, with all its seasons and moods, this constant flow which never stops for a single moment, is to be blissful! Then nobody can disturb your bliss. It is your hankering for permanency that creates trouble for you. You want to live in a life with no change, and that is not possible. You are asking the impossible ...

A man of awareness becomes courageous enough to accept the phenomenon of change.
In that very acceptance is bliss; then all is good, then you are never frustrated-because in the first place you never asked for anything.

I'm working awfully hard to try to accept change but sometimes it can be so hard

It is hard to change, but just a little change can get you out of the rut you're stuck in! x

I know. I'm working on it but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm quite there yet

With growth comes change, and don't we all need to grow? With change comes loss- loss of what was there before, and that's hard for many to accept.
