I think we all agree that probably the only constant in life is change. Whether we want it or not, whether we provoke it or not. Change is the mother of development. It constantly gives birth to new occasions and possibilities as tools to evolve. Change may not always be welcomed and often it cuts our world apart which we were actually fine with. But “being fine” is rather part of our comfort zone and stagnates our development. If we are not willing to leave our comfort zone then life will “help” us to do so. Or it will prepare the conditions for us when we are ready to make the step over the limit line. Because life makes no sense without development. Of course, we seldom feel ready when drastic changes happen. But when they happen we can rely on that we are ready for whatever may come and for whatever we have to learn, improve or develop from it.
It may be hard when seemingly good things end. The paradox is that it is also hard when inconvenient things don’t end but we still hold on because we are so used to them. Like a job, we don’t like (anymore) but we are too afraid to quit because of the insecurity of finding something better, or something at all. Even losing that job may throw us into desperation. But once we have no other choice but to realign we will find options we had not seen otherwise. We have changed and are ready for more. Life breaks things apart for us to put it together in a way that fits our changed being. It goes along with the Law of Attraction. Since we send out different waves, life responds differently. Circumstances change, fall apart or simply adjust.
Change means, ending something or adding something. Sometimes, it is necessary to end something which stands in the way in order to let something new in which has been already waiting. If we are aware of that new, that plan, vision or path we feel like walking then we are in control of that change. But very often we are not even aware that new things are already in the pipeline for us to be discovered and lived. That’s why life needs to take action. It may feel unfair, more than challenging, life-threatening, scary, or simply very sad when something is ended without us agreeing. We may not understand the lesson, (perhaps we never will) but whatever happens, happens in a greater context. And there is ALWAYS something in it for us. Nothing is ever taken without leaving at least the seed of something new.
Comfort zones and the purpose of life may basically not go along with each other. Change is needed to bring revelations, healing, chances, transformation, growth. If we don’t move things, things move us. BUT this has nothing to do with contentment. I would even say that contentment paired with the awareness that nothing is constant is the highest form of a processing development.
Yes, at times we may find ourselves surrounded by dark clouds and see no way out. We may believe that the world ends and its meaning may be lost. But it is mostly in our darkest hours when we naturally reach deep inside of ourselves, reach out to others or consider new options when the seed sprouts. When we cannot walk anymore we grow wings.
