Change is constant !

It is wise to bend rather than to break. Those who change will get spiritual wisdom. Conversely, those who have wisdom will decide to change. Change is the first law of Nature

In Hindi it is said--"फल आने पर डालियाँ विनम्रता से झुक जाती हैं "

What stops us to bend ? It is our EGO ! It is false ego which doesn't allow us to bend or accept the situations coming our way.

Those who learn from surroundings, past experiences and their own mistakes, they tend to rectify and correct themselves by bringing a positive change in there persona.

This constructive change enhances their beauty and make them more acceptable and desirable by all. No one can remain the same after some time. we change every moment and we are at times a completely different person with a positive change in us.

So we can say that change is the only thing which is constant। We are dead as rock if we do not change. Let's welcome the beautiful changes in ourselves and surrounding as well.

  2. To proceed towards positivity would help to realize the 'true self' which is absolute happiness i.e 'sat-chit-anand' only.If we are going away from our 'true self' that means we are following negativity only and such change is undesirable and not required.

  7. Very well said indeed -- @ Let's welcome the beautiful changes in ourselves and surrounding as well.

    Doc Divya, Change is indeed the flexibility and fluidity that provide us with the scope and room for growth from within and without. You have made a very strong point here through this blog about change. The validity of a person being "Rigid" and unwilling to change is indeed a clear sign of that individual's lack of intent on growth. A person refusing to change according to the flow of events randomly designed, planned and executed by nature's laws, then that individual is in danger of becoming extinct and so so, very quickly.

    However, within each sentient being (SENTIENT - I think, so I am alive and am breathing. Hence I exist -- that knowledge about self) has a core, that which is both changing and unchanging. It is 50-50 inside. This core inside us is what actually "Observes" a change or stillness outside of us. Ironically, the unchanging part within that core "Observes the Changes outside of us" and the changing part within the Core observes the Unchanging, stillness in the Chaos-order world in the outer realities.

    However, another form of knowledge also tells us "The rise and fall of anything happening in the Empirical reality or what we know as Objective reality, is so temporary in the colossal time-space continuum that it is considered a mere illusion."

    We get tricked here, because "All changes are recorded by the mind, which is itself a perishable element within us. The mind carries all experiences, once it disintegrates all it contains also disintegrate. Whereas, the Observer -- I am that I am -- (Or Thou art that, from Twan Tat-twam Asi from the Upanishads) is impervious to all "Experiences of the mind". It is hence very neutral to even the phenomenon of Change vs unchanging reality.

    But this kind of a change leads us to what we know as "Pragnya" or Conscious-Awareness.

    Here, I quote: "Yasya Naasti Swayam Pragnya, Shaswatam Kim karishyati. Lochanaabhyaam viheenarasya, Darpanam kim karishyati?"
    Transl: "One who is not self-aware/Conscious, has no value for even Eternity, just as an eye that can't see has no value for all the elements and ornaments that embellish and beautify the EYE and the face, -- nor the mirror that reflects it"

    So, yes a consciously aware Change is indeed an essential element for Spiritual growth, as you have rightly put it in the very beginning of the wonderful post.

  8. "All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another".
