It's Sunita here.
Moving towards an unknown destination is accompanied by whatever emotion and thoughts we assign to it.
Should the unknown have to be experienced through the lens of a singular mindset, defined by a single emotion?
Curiosity. Resistance. Fear. Excitement. Elation. Wonder. Apprehension. Nervousness. Gladness…
We usually experience a mix of multiple emotions, of which we end up focusing on a few. The ones we zone into end up determining our mood, as we stand at the precipice of change.
Change is the flow of life that will not go away.
It is the only permanence in the impermanence of our existence.
Yet we resist it mightily with all we have got within us.
Because change means we have to let go of something that has become dear, or habitual to us. A person. A habit. A house. A relationship. A job. A way of living. A surrounding. A dynamic…
Our environment is dynamic. It demands us to be nimble in order to follow its flow. We are unconsciously adapting at all times. Our bodies and minds are in a flux. But we are unaware of all the efforts we make to keep moving.
Conscious Change on the other hand is hard because there is tremendous pain and grief in having to let go of what we have come to love, and rely upon, as the core, and reflection of who we are.
We forget in our mourning, that our pain and deep sense of loss can transform us into new beings. We can become wiser versions of ourselves, with the ability to choose to hold our grief within us as wisdom.
This knowing guides us as we embark upon new journeys on the open road ahead. The road that has no signs to mark our direction or destination.
In submitting to the process of change, we have the divine opportunity to grow, and move forward, as more beautiful humans. Ones who carry the past in a way that illuminates the path ahead.
Ones who are granted the grace to face the unknown with equanimity.
To be embraced.
With my love,
