i’m off to cambridge, mass for a fun-filled, information-packed reunion at the revered alma mater of my spouse, and to celebrate life and all its changes with our good friends of many years.
change…the only thing you can count on …
i’m thinking how i change … my body … where i am … my moods
and i’m thinking of how the world changes … seemingly so unstable, so vulnerable to outside influences.
and then i think of the one constant, besides change, that i’ve found that gives me great comfort in my journey here:
my deep contact with the Oneness of All — that force some call God, but i prefer Great Spirit.
i am a big fan of the I Ching, called the Book of Change, and written down by Confucious about 4,000 yrs. ago. change has been a familiar comforting essence in my search for Truth. i trust change. i honor change. but i also know that if i’m not flexible, like a young bamboo shoot, and allow change to happen, naturally — i am doomed for diaster.
i don’t know, i just felt like sharing that today.
mom is having a hard time adapting to the change that’s affecting her body. her state of thinking has been altered by this tiny tiny TIA that hasn’t even registered in a CAT Scan. but…change is not her comfort zone.
many people are freaking because of the unprecedently change in our financial world. this is the time for all good people to rely upon nothing but their own Higher Selves. that is the change we’re all challenged to accept.
in case you’re wondering, this “down-ward dog” person i’m representing here, in sculpture and in black and white penstrokes, is the ancient egyptian goddess named Nut. she represented the passage of the sun across the sky. like the sun, Nut is symbolic of eternal life. always changing, but always constant, and never ending.
i am here with you, and i wish you all a pleasant change, each and every moment of your lives.
now i change places, from st. augustine to boston! always something.
in the Light, lordflea
