Choosing to hope in the midst of change
Such a monumental time in the world today.. More earth changes, countries in bankruptcy, the upcoming election for The american presidency. With all the changes that are happening for so many of us,I seem to be looking at the power and path of renewal....Maybe It's something in the Fall air that reminds me of life's transitions..It’s never to late to start over, everyday is a new beginning..Letting go,allowing the new can often times create a vacuum so that new changes can occur..I feel a lot of hope for the future,for myself and for each of us.. Like the snake that sheds it skin and the mythological phoenix that rises from the ashes, there is always the hope for the new, new pathways, new connections and new directions in life.. The Buddha says “Abandon Hope”- but somehow, I think he meant it as a way of avoiding suffering, which is for the most part self inflicted.. I think it’s important to hope for better days, to visualize them and to work toward them too... even when that means struggling with all your being to overcome financial fear, health fear, relationship fear, creativity fear-or whatever your particular fear is. Working to change your mindset through fear is what I believe can cause your veritable DNA to wake up to change! Think about it! The mind is that powerful and a remarkable tool for transforming our lives. To let go and step into the new allows the magic to happen and to experience the miracles that are already waiting there..
