Any and all change begins from within. It’s easy to want to look for some external factor, such as a family member or employer, to blame our circumstances on or to reject change we don’t like. We are however, our ‘own’ master of change, we own it and we are ultimately responsible for the change and creations we’d like to see in our lives. YOU choose whether you want life to lead you or you lead your life.
I read a book a couple of years ago called, ‘Somebody Should Have Told Us’ by Jack Pransky and I’d like to share the excerpt below which has stuck with me, emphasizing all begins within. For personal change and transformation, one must have an open mind, be willing and ready for the ‘ride’.
The Creator gathered all of creation and said,
‘I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it.
It is the realization that they create their own reality.’
The eagle said, ‘Give it to me, I will take it to the moon.’
The Creator said, ‘No, One day they will go there and find it.’
The salmon said, ‘I will hide it on the bottom of the ocean.’
‘No, They will go there too.’
The buffalo said, ‘I will bury it on the great plains.’
The Creator said, ‘They will cut the skin of the earth and find it even there.’
The Grandmother Mole…who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said,
‘Put it inside them, for that is the last place they will look.’
The Creator said, ‘It is done.’
