Change is a Friend of Mine: Wisdom for the Mighty Dreamer
You who have a great dream. Not only for yourself, but for humanity, the universe, the world we live in.
You who dream mighty dreams. Vast, improbable and lofty dreams. You who have dreams as big as galaxies and constellations. You who dream so big it takes your breath away.
What you truly are is a world changer.
You. Change. The. World.
(Thank you, thank you, thank you.)
It ain't easy. I know that. Because in order to be a warrior for change, you need make peace with it.
Change for the worse, change for the better.
You must be able to view change without judgement and labels. Change is change. It doesn't have to be good or bad, right or wrong. It doesn't have to have a name, to fit into a category.
The huge journey of change you are about to embark on to make your big dream come true, it is made up of thousands and thousands of elements of alterations, modifications, transformations, refinements, metamorphoses and just plain old everything-upside-down-ness.
Change is funny like that.
To make friends with change – is to be nice to it. Be gentle with it. It's treating change the way you want to be treated.
Don't fight it. Don't fear it. Don't wish it wasn't there.
(Oh, and don't try to ignore it. Nobody likes to be ignored.)
Instead, try to find space in your heart to treasure and appreciate change. Appreciate what is. Because it is.
Try not to devalue the smalls steps on your way. Taking a tiny, tiny step in the right direction can be the most powerful act of change you will ever do. And that big step you are dreading to make? That might be scary and huge, but it might end up being a drop in the ocean. You never know.
What is happening, is happening.
Your big dream is your destiny.
You can fight it all you want, but there are so many things in this life that is beyond our control.
The only thing we can control is how we deal with it. How we receive it. And how we act on it.
So the next time a big change happen to you, or you set wheels in motion to make a change – small or large;
Remember that change is a friend.
Even when you have to let people go. Even when you have to let possessions go. Even when you have to let dreams go.
Change is evolution.
Change is revolution.
Change is the circle of life.
Change is the holy, sacred, universal, inter-connectedness of the soul.
