Change is one of those things in life that is guaranteed. How we see it and move through it is an indicator of how we move through the world, including the people we associate with and, to a large extent, our health and our financial situation.
In the 12-Step programs, there is a saying about “lack of change”…that doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result, is the definition of insanity.
Recently I have re-read a book called “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson. It is a small quick easy read, but packed with powerful tools. If you haven’t read it, please do. If you have, re-read it.
Cheese is a metaphor for what you want to have in life, whether it’s a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health or just peace of mind.
The book could help you shift your perspective on how see and react to things in life.
If we are not constantly moving with the changes in life, our lives do become stale.
On the spiritual level, we need to constantly move, as well. The most important piece is that every day we try to improve our relationship with the God of our understanding.
The heart of my spiritual practice is the 11th Step in the 12-Step recovery programs:
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
What are you doing to move through the changes today, both materially and spiritually?
