“The Only Way to Make Sense out of Change Is to Plunge Into It, Move With It, and Join the Dance” – Alan Watts

Written For and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

Change, the only certainty in life; yet, we resist it. We fight so hard to keep things the same.  We argue with its reasoning and turn our backs to it. But no matter how hard we fight, it drags us – sometimes screaming and crying and sometimes with our teeth chattering in fear.

So I have wondered, what do we have to lose by admiring its waters and swimming with its current? Dancing with the trees as they sway in its winds? Inviting it in to illuminate the parts of us that need to grow?  What do we have to lose by plunging into it and moving with its rhythm? Our approach towards change can provide us with all of the difference in how we welcome the next season of our lives.

No matter our resistance or our fear, the leaves will fall in autumn and the flowers will bloom in spring. Change will come. Let’s go on this adventure with an open heart and an inquisitive soul.
