Embrace change, embrace life

“When something dies, you don’t lose it, because you never owned it.” - Mooji

When changes happen, we try to resist. For it is very hard to give up on a dream, especially those dreams that we nurtured for years. For it is hard to wake up to the reality. We are sad, we suffer.

Yet in every change that is happening, we can see the beauty of life unfolding. If we place ourselves in this place of ours where sadness and suffering is welcome, in this place of ours where we can give empathy to ourselves, we can witness that this sadness and this suffering are manifestations of life. When we feel this way, we are alive.

When we embrace change, we say “That’s life”. It doesn’t mean that there’s nothing we can do or could have done about it....
