Day 3: Embracing Change

"The World is round and the place which may 
seem like the end may also be the Beginning."
Day 3: Embracing Change
There are 31,530,000 seconds in a year, a thousand milliseconds in a second, a million microseconds, a billion nanoseconds. And the one constant connecting nanoseconds to years is change. The universe, from atom to galaxy, is in a perpetual state of flux. But we humans don't like change; we fight it, it scares us. So we create the illusion of stasis. We want to believe in a world at rest, the world of right now yet our great paradox remains the same. The moment we grasp the now that now is gone. We cling to snapshots, but life is moving pictures, each nanosecond different from the last. Time forces us to grow, to adapt because every time we blink our eyes the world shifts beneath our feet. Every day, every moment, every nanosecond the world changes. Electrons bump into each other and react; people collide and alter each other's paths. Change isn't easy, more often it's wrenching and difficult, but maybe that's a good thing, because it's change that makes us strong, keeps us resilient, and teaches us to evolve.

There's a small sign in my room that helps me shut down my pity parties,
 it reads:

A change of Heart is more then just changing our behavior and habits, it is a change in our very nature. It is such a significant change that God refers to is as a rebirth, a change of heart, and a baptism of fire.
"Marvel not that all mankind...all nations, kindreds, tongues and people must be born again; yea born of God, changed from their carnal and fallen state, to a state of righteousness, being redeemed of God, becoming His sons and daughters." 

Walking Mediation... Just get outside and feel the earth move beneath your feet and breath deep. Yoga doesn't always have to be on the mat.
