Change often comes unbidden and yet once it arrives its necessity is clear. If we are stuck and unable to move ourselves in a new direction some part of us or some outside force will prompt us to do so, either by force or circumstance. When change comes greet it with open arms, for it will return equilibrium to life, rearranging things so that they are in better balance, remaking things in a new pattern. Change is always good, though it may take some time to fully realize this and to realize that it has always been in the making as well.
Stay on the path of balance that you have set out upon. Maintain stability and equanimity within yourself. Remain committed to honing the self in as many ways as possible, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Do not be too hard on the self, for flexibility is a major ability as you grow and change. For instance, if one thing isn’t working for you try another. The ability to be focused but fluid, to be intent but in the flow of life, is by far one of the most desirable. For balance implies just that, a constant shifting, the ability to be supple and engaging, light as a feather in the air but also as solid as the bird from whom that feather fell. Find your balance every day and go forth with the knowledge that you are enough.
Times of great change that come unbidden yet seem well-timed, offer the opportunity to shift away from old patterns and behaviors. They offer the opportunity to begin life anew. Every leaving is a new beginning. Every break with something old is the start of something new. Do not mourn endings too much but look forward to what is to come. For surely you can count on life to continue to guide you forward in a new direction even as it guides you to halt progress in a direction that no longer serves you. It just means it’s time to head along a new and better path.
Early springtime poses many changes, from warm and pleasant days to cold and snowy ones buffeted by heavy winds. It’s the time of precipice, before spring births forth. Within the self the time of precipice shows up at any time of year, the struggle for something new to emerge. As with the days of early spring there is a settling that will take place and the tensions of the precipice will abate. With patience, what was once so urgent and even dangerous at spring’s awakening will smooth into a warm summer’s day. With a confident heart and steady eye on the future look forward to what is to come in the sure blooming ahead, as it always comes.
Align with Spirit throughout the day, asking for guidance in little ways so that your balance is maintained and your journey along a steady and creative path ensured. Allow Spirit’s wisdom to aid you as you decide what comes next on your journey to wholeness. Spirit’s wisdom comes from the heart and it may not be what you expect but it will be what you need.
