The first time I heard the expression “the only constant is change,” I did not understand it. Then as I began to contemplate it, I realized how true it is.
Everything changes -nature, the world, our lives, everything. The one constant I can hold onto is a Power Greater than Myself, which I may not always understand but that I know and is always present.
Some life changes are small, some are big, and some are genuinely transformational. Those changes are so significant that we are forever changed, such as the caterpillar and the butterfly.
I have had some of those in my life, and as tricky as they may have been at the time, the result was always for my highest good. So I am one more time embarking on a journey into what is unfamiliar, yet what I feel in my heart is the next step for me.
I know that change is part of the soul’s journey; when we are not changing or moving forward, we are stagnant. Water, when it does not move, is stagnant. Such water becomes dark, murky, and often stinky. It is not what I wish for myself. I do not want to be like murky water but like a mountain stream, clean and clear and moving to something more significant for my soul’s development.
