Heraclitus said, “Change is the only constant”, and yet change is usually something we resist. But, try as we might, we can’t hold on to anything—we age, relationships evolve, children get older and leave home, and jobs come and go. This sense of groundlessness can leave us feeling shaken. But, what if we could use this sense of groundlessness to cultivate a little more openness? Maybe we could learn to greet change the way we experience the four seasons—realizing that letting go of one thing allows us to opening to another, and we might even begin to see that our clinging is the source of our sadness. And maybe by learning to ride the wave of life’s constant ebbs and flows and looking beyond the ups and downs of any particular moment, we could begin to peer into the mysterious and beautiful truths unifying all of our journeys.
