Embrace Change


No thing is permanent
Unless we except status quo
Except and expect change
Change is a necessary and perpetual
In a healthy, active system
Changelessness is deadly

Change is continuous
Steady and driven by a cause
Nature and extent of change
Depends on
Nature and extent of cause

We all look for
And indeed long for a change
Yet then we run from it
Hide in the safety of what is
Yet occurring change is
Not the where we are
Looking or longing for
It's where we're going or
That which we run from.

Mostly we are
Unprepared for the change
Though we were longing for it
Often we find it difficult
To accommodate and risk
To accept change

Nothing wrong longing for a change
Or fearing it
Or avoiding it
Will not fulfill our potential
Or achieve our dreams

We need to create such
Causes that will lead
To the change we look for
Many a time these causes
Are not totally under our control

So, it is well-advised
To accept the ride of change
To find yourself chasing your dreams
Be In a position to accept
The change whole-heartedly

Long for a change,
Expect it
Don't run....act
Change will come
But, again be prepared

To accept the change
Even when appearing to fall short
Might exceed your expectations.
No longer a life of chance
But a voyage of wonder.
