Is  Change  Constant ?

Yes, change is the only constant thing. One might think the words itself are contradictory ‘change’ & ‘constant’ but people seem to ‘know’ this proverb very well. It is so because people just ‘seem to know’ but very few people actually know what it means and probably 10% of them accept that ‘change’. Change is Constant has a very wide array of association it may pertain to changing person’s behavior, person as a whole, society, environment etc… So one might wonder what’s the big deal then, if everything’s changing.  The thing is that we fail to understand the gist of anything that is simple yet powerful, it’s like Cybernetics (a science of learning from nature) simple & powerful still people fail to understand it and take it for granted.

The ‘change’ is a pointer to changing one’s own self from the inside, because outside there are limitations whereas you have almost infinite options to change inside. The internal change is very much visible on the outside. People tend to work on the periphery of any problem rather than hitting hard on the core of it. Problems are never solved by beating around the bushes; they’ve to be tackled in a right way. People’s limited understanding regarding this profound truth is stuck on the outside. Change is generally perceived as changing their wardrobe, phone or maybe car/bike; failing to understand that the ‘change’ must come from within. Some people do realize the depth of ‘change is constant’ but for them it ‘seems’ very hard to change one’s own self from within. This ‘seems’ is our perception which makes anything hard or easy and the perception is up to us, we can alter it ourselves, if we wish to.

Still why this ‘changing from within’ appears to be difficult or rather impossible. It is our rigidity and our ‘I am perfect’ attitude that hinders that change and in turn our growth as an individual. We often see people saying ‘why should I change’, ‘why can’t he/she change’; this very rigidness makes the change apparently difficult.

One must learn from nature. Flowing water does not whine about the stone/boulders in its path rather is takes its own course and smoothly flows from the sides. Roots of the trees don’t fight with the stones in their path of search for water in the soil rather they curl around it and continue their search. Likewise one must be open to change and things automatically start falling in their places, one need not slog for it. Once an individual gets the key that change in inevitable, one can understand all of ‘how to change life’ and ‘how to be happy’ realities.

One might even wonder why to change, which is a very valid query. Almost every other person in the world has relationship issues that can be at workplace and/or in personal life viz… Family and spouse. Any two people who have altercation every fortnight maybe with the same reason or different, if one of them does not respond in the usual (harsh) tone the other person automatically calms down. If one decides to change and not argue with the same person then he/she will notice that previously it was just foolish to argue. This is the change, internal; not external. Change is constant in other words mean ‘Be open to uncertainty’. If one is flexible and is ready to accept whatever comes in the way. Also is not entangled between desires, core belief system and other mind blockages; the realization dawns that everything happens for a reason and that is for our betterment. Its nature way or say creator’s way of making us flexible. Like death, our whole life in its entirety is uncertain, one must not waste time in getting bruised in life by our rigidness rather be flexible, accept change and move to excellence. Be open, understand and analyze every situation that makes you uncomfortable; then you’ll be able to decode the reason why you were put into that situation. With this attitude life is bound to reward you.
