“Thanks to impermanence, everything is possible.” Thich Nhat Hanh
If there is one lesson that I’m constantly learning to lean into it would be the lesson of Impermanence. It’s one of those things that seem so simple and true and yet every time we are faced with change, we contract and resist.
What is it about change that makes it so hard to lean into? What is the underlying fear that arises in you when you think of making a big life change?
It’s easy to believe that things are solid and secure.
Think about something in your life now that is asking you to surrender to the change? This could be something really big like a move to a new location, start a new career, let go of a career you once had, end a relationship or a change in your physical health.
What is one area in your life that is either requesting a change or is happening whether you like it or not?
Can you identify the story that you are running in your head about this change?
Often times these stories start with the sentence I can’t, I don’t know how, I wish I could, and why is this happening to me?
If you take a deeper look at those stories, they are putting you in a frequency of victim consciousness and are keeping you in a state of disempowerment.
What would it look like if you remixed those “why is this happening to me” questions into “how can I grow from this” or “what is my life asking I do differently”.
These insightful questions put you in a much higher frequency to 1st accept the change that is happening and then
In week 4 of my CIJ class, we dive into penetrating questions. And how we can use them in our daily lives to not only connect with other people more intently but the questions offer us wisdom and guidance when change can feel so scary.
Meditate on this concept this week.
Think of the situations in your life that are changing and see if you can find a little more ease into letting go.
Knowing that nothing ever dies, it simply transforms.
