Living the Change

WHERE THERE IS A DISTINCTION BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH, THERE IS CHANGE
Change happens. It is part of the human experience. It can be a wonderful gift, if we understand the process. There is a great deal of information available about skills for managing change. But the most important skills that we can master are the ones that give us an understanding of ourselves, and how we, ourselves, facilitate change in our lives.

Our capacity for paradox is probably the most important factor in our ability to change...In every paradox, what seems to be opposing can be seen as complimentary and in fact, part of a larger spectrum, from a wider viewpoint...Determining the spectral nature of paradox might require an ability to develop and sustain relationship. If the change you are experiencing affects not only you but a larger group, your understanding of the nature of relationship may be the key to successful change.

Another critical element of change is anamnesis, or the remembrance of our own essential being, that part of us that we bring to manifestation, our own spirit...This change in viewpoint is the crèche of experience manifest. This, is essential change.

The Art of Being is All About Living


OUR BEING NATURALLY INCLUDES OUR PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL ASPECTS IN CONSCIOUSNESS
I think that our “being” covers every aspect of who we are, including the trendy "who we really are."  Essential being - that part of us that is infinite, that holds our absolute truths, grounds us to the universe, is our awareness, moves the Logos - is just as important as finite and changeable aspects, such as our cellular components, ego, sacral, or consciousness.  

The art of being may just be recognizing finite aspects of being while creating experience in harmony with the infinite aspects of soul and spirit.
If we have the wisdom to see it, our experience presents us with opportunity for the possibility of becoming, and leads us to our own infinite nature if we do not resist.  What parts of us are finite and which infinite can be presented in a clash of light and shadow, or in the whisper of the cool wind on our face. Recognition tells us which is which.  If seen from the non dual viewpoint, there is no division between.
