The lazy mist high up the evening curled,
And now the morn quite hides in smoke and haze;
The place we occupy seems all the world.”

CONNECT WITH THE LIFE FORCE
“The spirit down here in man and the spirit up there in the sun, in reality are only one spirit, and there is no other one.”
— The Upanishads
We regard our lives as made up of an infinite number of separate bits and pieces. That is how our senses perceive our universe.
But science has now affirmed what the sages always knew. The life force is the foundation of all, unseen and untouched though it may be. It flows through everyone and everything. It is impossible to exist separate and apart from the source of all creation.
“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.”
— Jelaluddin Rumi

“Security can only be achieved through constant change, through discarding old ideas that have outlived their usefulness and adapting others to current facts.”
-William O. Douglas
There’s an old saying that nothing is permanent but change. When we are flexible and open to change, we can learn and grow through all types of changes. Change offers us newfound freedom, and when we realize that, we are secure in knowing that change is good, and good for us.
