Contemplating Change

It’s been said that you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different result. Yet, we often do just that! We get up, day in, day out, go to the same job, do the same tasks, and ‘hope’ that we’ll be happier.

It dawned on me today, that I’ve been caught up in this for far too long. It’s time I did something different. I’m still not sure what that difference should be. But contemplating change is the first step!

    Change is something that I have personally experienced these last three years, not something I wanted, but rather forced on me… perhaps because I wasn’t listening.

    I wanted to share with you the thoughts and feelings experienced during these times…

    I sit in a place of in between. No longer attached to the past; not yet ready for the new. Patiently waiting for what, I do not know. All the old structures have crumbled, no longer able to sustain themselves. Everything I thought I was revealed as illusion. Where do I go to next? I feel like I am in a state of life between lives. That place after death: the waiting room, waiting to take on the next role. A strange situation it is, too. I am here, but at the same time not here. Part of this place, but also strangely removed from it. Family and friends gone, disappeared as though they never existed. It’s as though I have been picked up and placed in another setting, another play. A play not yet revealed. It’s not a scary place but a strange place, like I’m in a foreign world observing the natives, trying to grasp their language their rules for life even. I feel like an intruder as if I don’t belong; which I no longer do. I’m not who I was, but as yet not who I am.

    When you say “change was forced on me…”, it’s interesting how when we don’t initiate changes to benefit our own evolution, the universe brings about situations that do force change on us. We have to then adapt.

    I also like how you said it’s like you’ve been picked up and placed in another setting. I can relate to that feeling of being in a foreign world observing the natives, although for me, I deliberately picked myself up and put myself in another country. Still, it’s very similar… a feeling of being in limbo, the chrysalis stage, waiting to become a butterfly!
