Risking change


I find change frightening and as I look back I have aborted the possibility of so many potential new beginnings and opportunities due to this fear.  Today I am sharing this meditation from Tian Dayton’s book Daily Affirmations for Forgiving and Moving On, on the subject of risking change.

Today I recognise that all growth requires change,and all change involves risk and that these are scary and difficult.

If I am not experiencing discomfort in my feelings, then I am not really changing.

Deep meaningful change is hard won.  It is not easy.  It requires courage and commitment.

When I am not willing to take any risks, when I chose only to stay safe, my life becomes progressively more narrow.

When I am not willing to risk being hurt, my relationships become more shallow.

When I am not willing to search for a Higher Power, I have to make do with the stories and descriptions of other people’s God.

I have the courage and willingness to change.

Observe always that everything is the result of change, and get used to thinking that there is nothing life loves so well as to change existing forms and make them into new forms.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
