Change is inevitable.
We all know intellectually that change happens. It’s all around us. But that knowledge does not always translate into wisdom that prepares us for momentous change.
Whatever you’re feeling right now,
Whatever sense of blessed assurance, firm conviction, euphoric otherworldliness.
No matter where you are geographically, spiritually, emotionally, financially,
How elevated, how firm, how centred you feel.
If you’re on a journey – seeking some kind of spiritual reality, you will encounter times of doubt, of questioning, anguish, despair, abandonment.
That is the journey.
But when the crisis hits, when change comes that threatens the very foundations, what will sustain you?
Past experiences? Faith? Theology? Group energy? Emotional energy? Love?
Will the security of institutionalised religion be a help or a hindrance to moving through change?
What will see you through the turmoil?
What will give you the ability to adapt, learn and grow?
You’re not alone. Others have journeyed similar roads.
Read their stories. Talk with them if you can.
