Change is something we shy away from because it seems daunting, even scary sometimes, but it is necessary.
Change is having the ability to move from one situation to another with relative ease. Change gives us a different perspective. Where we know physical change is going to happen we’re happy to accept it, but we seem to find psychological change difficult.
For some of us change is brought about by a desire to change, but it’s something that needs to be honed if it is to happen. When we don’t think about changed it’s easy to stagnate, and that can’t broaden our horizons, or our spiritual growth.
How many of us will continue to do the same job without thinking about finding another job, potentially earning more money, taking on more responsibility, or exploring new horizons? Initially we’re afraid of change, because we’re scared to delve into unknown territory.
A familiar situation is always more comforting. It’s assumed that change is a gamble; we take risks, and risks are something that we’re not always comfortable with. To some degree that’s inevitable, and therefore not so easy to accept.
Without change we are unlikely to have a go at new things. We may shop at the same grocery store and eat the same foods. We know what we know, but without change, we will stop learning and experiencing new things; change is important, it helps us grow.
When we bring about change, we psychologically clear the closet and wipe the slate clean. When we reach the other side we also begin to see that we can live a new life, take a new approach and see for ourselves that change isn’t as scary as we once thought.
