A period of Adjustment
And this is what I learned from class tonight... or this is what is on my mind tonight.
Transitions always require a period of adjustment, adjustment to a new energetic environment, a new rhythm, a new feeling, a new way. Along with the morphing of things on the outside comes some subtle or not so subtle changes on the inside. Resistance is not uncommon especially when we expect things to go the way we know. I think that getting to that place where the magic happens is not always easy or smooth. In fact, at times, it can feel quite the opposite.
I think the key to a graceful transition is a sincere willingness and openness in the process of the experience. But, as the word transition implies, the changing of form and/or moving from one plane or place to the next can bring up a lot of emotions. Sometimes at the beginning of new things or in the middle of the moment when things feel still is when the impatience shows up. The emotions rise to the surface and the clarity of the moment gets lost under the rippling currents of change.
Outwardly things may look different but at the center it's the same. Meaning if we hold to that place in our heart where there is both strength and softness and we breathe in the moment, then, we will glide along and navigate the constantly changing seascape with a little more ease. Of course, if in this moment, the ride into the unknown you find yourself trying to head in the other direction... let go. Go along for the ride because you may just find you've ended up exactly where you want to be just in a round about sort of way.
