Ep 06: Change: Flowing and Building with the Seasons of Life
On today’s episode, we are going to talk about change. In our world today, we are on the brink of immense change. The season of tradition is slowly changing, like leaves falling in the fall season. So too, our experience of life is also very seasonal; sometimes we simply do not know what to expect. But nevertheless, we prepare for the many possibilities and roads that life might take us on. When it comes to seasonal changes, if we get too rigid, this change becomes painful! It is certainly a human instinct to try and dominate nature and its rules, no matter how much it keeps us on our toes. We often seem to choose to break the pattern, every chance we get. Other times we simply flow and build with it. In the end, we need to accept that change is constant and that we have to make choices to keep growing. After all, success will be determined by your personal emotions and happiness. So where do you stand? Stay tuned as we discuss all things change and what it means for our own evolution.
