Change is inevitable, but can be a huge source of positivity.
Let’s face it. Everything changes. The world evolves, and whether you want to admit it or no, change is going to occur.
Seasons change. The weather changes. We humans have a unique ability to change our clothes, our homes, our lives, and our minds. Changes just are.
Often we just let change occur. The world is turning, things happen. Sometimes we accept this. Other times, we resist it.
It’s important to recognize positive resistance versus negative resistance. There is a difference. Marching to protest unjust policy, writing and calling members of Congress, petitioning and other forms of resistance are positive, and a focus for directing changes.
Holding onto the past, trying to force matters into an unnatural shape, standing against progress, or holding tightly to a disproven belief and similar forms of resistance are negative, and present obstacles to change. Obstructing will seldom, if ever, get you where you want to go.
Renowned psychologist Carl Jung said, “What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.” Or, to sum up, What you resist, persists. This is rather pertinent to change. When we resist changes, as in the form of obstruction, we will get more of what we don’t want.
The Universe is pretty consistent in using consciousness to create reality. However, the Universe does not recognize don’t, do not, don’t want, or undo. The Universe recognizes only item and desire. So if you say I do not want this, the Universe only gets the message of want this.
Because many people fear change, we tend to resist in the obstructionist manner. It takes very little thought to see this for what it is.
When we accept that change is going to happen, like it or not, we can choose how to work with it. Stand against it, or with it? Resist by trying to redirect, or resist by obstruction? The choice is more in or hands than we generally recognize.
When we choose change, we get to choose to make it positive. If things are not how we want them to be, we can choose to change them for the better. I know sometimes it feels hopeless, but it really isn’t. This can be an incredible source for positivity in this world.
Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.
Knowing that change happens whether we like it or not, we can choose to work with change to generate positivity. When we strive to direct it instead of resist it with obstructions, we empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we frequently spread that feeling to others around us; as such, we can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
