Heraclitus, a self taught and independent philosopher, once said: “Change is the only constant.”

He also said: “… you cannot step twice into the same stream.”

Simple, but true. However we often talk as if life is unchanging and permanent, yet everything, including ourselves, is changing. Life forms age, the universe is ever expanding (as Edwin Hubble was able to prove), planets are ever changing. Nothing is permanent.

Some people are uncomfortable with change, ironically it is a force of life. Change is about growth, transformation, adaptation, and without change we would lack spark. we would be lacking the very thing that can help ignite us. Change for the sake of change is never productive or positve, but change we attend to, are mindful of, will be part of our next step, our core energy.
