Life is in constant motion…full of change. We are but a small part in the grand scheme of things. The illusion that man can control everything that happens on earth keeps us feeling superior and oblivious to the actual destruction we are actually causing.
Progress has indeed made living life on earth easier and more convenient for man. What with all the gadgets, electronics, means of transport and even just the everyday necessities we use. From the nice hot water we use in the shower to the toilet paper in the washroom.
However, there are a lot of things beyond our control. We may be the cause of the change, but we certainly cannot predict nor influence the direction it’s going to go. We can do something to avoid it, or even waylay it. Though, if it’s going to happen, there is nothing we can do to stop it. Just like the change of seasons. Summer turns to Fall, Fall turns to Winter, Winter turns to Spring and Spring turns back to Summer.
There is nothing we can really do about it except go with the flow, roll with the change, adapt to whatever it brings along and carry on with life. All we need to remember is to keep ourselves intact, be as malleable as we can and take it astride.
Welcome change! It’s good for you.
