Humans are wired to learn from pain and discomfort. When all is going well we relax and go into neutral, like an idling car. When we’re faced with fear, hostility, physical and/or emotional pain, and other such lower frequential energies, we tend to go into action, pedal to the medal. “Why is this happening to me? What have I done to deserve this?” and other such questions quickly arise.
Well, face it. If we were happy and comfortable all the time would we really want to change anything?
Growth, improvement, healing, and other such changes only occur when we’ve been made uncomfortable enough that we don’t want to tolerate the situation any more. It’s then and only then that we begin to desire change.
And so we’ve just had one of the most uncomfortable years in our history. Suddenly everyone wants things to be better – our government, our health, the climate, the economy, the environment, and more.
Here’s the deal: true change only happens when the learning about an experience is complete. As a dear friend used to say, “When it becomes a no-thing then you’re done with the lesson and can move on.” In other words, when you’ve acquired all the learning you need and/or want about an issue or situation, at that point you become bored or tired of it. That’s the signal that you’re ready to move on with your learning.
Since we’re still battling the viral pandemic, we don’t yet have a government that works for the people of our country, gazillions of people are still unemployed, and we still live on a polluted planet, evidently we’re not complete with our learning regarding these issues. Now is the time to begin thinking of what kind of world, government, and culture you want to live in so that you can create it.
But first, you must get clear – absolutely clear – about what you’ve learned. Only then can you define what you want.
After you’ve determined what it is you want, then you can envision it and describe it in minute detail. As you do so, feel the sensations and emotions you’ll have when your vision is a reality.
Ask yourself such questions as:
- What caused me pain this last year – emotional, physical, or both?
- What did I learn about the issue/situation?
- What did I learn about myself while I was experiencing that which caused me the pain?
- How do I want to see this situation/issue changed so that it becomes beneficial for all?
- What am I willing to do or refrain from doing in order to assist the changes I desire into becoming reality?
Now, do something. Take a step big or small, and change your world so that it better reflects what you truly wish it to be.
