More About Change... (Part 3)

My dear friends...

We have been talking here last two weeks about the life experience of Change. I have been saying in this space that all change is change for the better. There is no such thing as change for the worse. While this is difficult to embrace for many people, it is soundly based in the principles of life.

Conversations with God tells us that life is eternally Functional, Adaptable, and Sustainable. These are the Basic Principles of Life, and they cannot be violated or rendered in any way inoperable, or Life would cease to be.

All of this becomes much easier for people to comprehend with my simple substitution of the word God for the word Life. Suddenly, everything is made clear. God is eternally Functional, Adaptable, and Sustainable. These are the Basic Principles of God, and they cannot be violated or rendered in any way inoperable, or God would cease to be.

When human beings embrace the extraordinary idea presented here, the process of change will be seen for what it is: the ultimate expression of Divinity Itself, sustaining Itself through adaptations that render Itself eternally magnificent.

Change is an announcement of Life's intention to go on. Change is the fundamental impulse of Life Itself.

Again I want to tell you that I don't think that a lot of people see it this way. If they saw it this way they would heed the injunction of Christ, and "be not afraid." Yet "ye of little faith" are afraid. Thus it was that Franklin Roosevelt was moved to say, "We have nothing to fear, but fear itself."

I'm going to take that one step further. I'm going to say...

We have nothing to change, but Change Itself. That is, we have only to change our ideas of what change is, and why it occurs, and we will have mastered the central experience of life.

We should all be aware that change does not occur in a vacuum. Change does not take place in the universe for no reason. Change is not a random act. Change is an announcement that something is not working.

The changes that have occurred in your life have happened because disharmony was present. When disharmony is present, life becomes dysfunctional-and that condition violates the first of the Basic Principles of Life (Life is Functional, Adaptable, and Sustainable) and invokes the second. you might say….

"If all things happen for the better...I mean, if that is really true...then someone needs to tell me what in blazes God has in mind, because things sure don't look any better to me!"

And this leads us to a change that I have been encouraging people to make about change itself. I have been saying to people..."Change your idea about why change occurs."

And that's what we're going to take a look at next week.

The wonderful information I am sharing with you here comes out of the insight in When Everything Changes, Change Everything — a book than can truly "change" your life.

See you then! and hugs,
