Change Comes From the Heart
We like to think that we can stop change from happening or at least slow it down. However, change is inevitable. It’s also scary because the mind loves sameness, routine and repetition; it doesn’t know what will happen, when it will happen and how it will happen. The mind would like to keeps things the same, even if it hurts us in the process.

Change is Often Forced
For many of us, change is forced upon us as a result of something big, like job loss, death, illness, or the end of a relationship. It’s also forced upon us after we have suffered enough pain and discomfort that the fear of change takes a backseat to the desire for something better. The unknown becomes less scary.
Change Through Fear, Need or Another Emotion
I had a teacher who once told me that the more we fight or push against who we are and our current conditions, the more pain we create inside us and in the world around us (because we project that pain). For example, you might want to lose 20 pounds. You might want to lose that weight because you feel insecure or unattractive and you believe that the weight loss will make you feel secure and attractive. However, that fear and insecurity will still be present after you lose the weight. Why? You’ll be fearful of not maintaining the weight loss and you will beat yourself up if you gain a pound. Change through fear or need will lead to the same emotion still running you once that change has been made.
The Grass is Always Greener?
If you really explore the things you want, you’ll discover you want them because you hate or dislike what you currently have or are. You’re assuming life is better somewhere else. If you hate being poor, you may think being rich is better because money will make you happy. But happiness doesn’t increase, the more money people have. For some, they’re even more unhappy with all their millions. If you hate being single, you may think marriage will make you happy. But marriage presents its challenges too.
Change From the Heart
If you want to change your life, it needs to come from the heart. Yes, I know it sounds a bit airy-fairy, and “new age,” but when change happens from a space of love, it happens spontaneously and without force. How does it come from the heart, then? By loving yourself and your life just as it is now. Let’s go back to the goal of losing weight. If your desire to lose weight comes from the heart, it means you truly love your body as it is right now—the lumps and the bumps. If you can do that, the weight will naturally start to fall away. You may feel the impulse to exercise. You may make healthier food choices. I can assure you that no matter your goal, when love is present change happens naturally and spontaneously.
The Power of Love
Love can strip away that which we no longer need. It can also bring into our lives that which we need for the next step of a journey. When love flows freely in your life, anything is possible. So if you want to change something about your life, instead of putting fear or hate towards it, put love towards it instead. Ask yourself, “What can I love about this thing, event or person at the moment?” It may seem counterproductive, but it leads to true change that will be spontaneous and permanent rather than forced by the mind.
