What is change? & how do you master the ability to use it..(if that makes sense)

 ThatOfficialGuy (@thatofficialguy)8 years, 4 months ago

Its just that I’m fascinated on the ability to create new things and outcomes in life. the power to change a person’s thinking or way of living life, to change theories and change structures. new ideas . changing the way something works or look , change over time . evolution . life, death , light, dark , change . i really don’t know if this makes sense tell me if this does or doesn’t . but i would like some help on the origin of change , the root of the word. is there an/a special meaning in the word. and/or HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CHANGE AND WHAT DOES CHANGE MEAN TO YOU ? THANKS FOR THE READ!!

@thatofficialguy, Change is a wheel that just keeps on rollin’ steadily… People who exert effort to try to arrest change to prevent losses and people who try to court rapid change to accumulate gains are working themselves up pointlessly. Change comes in it’s own time, and the circular nature of change ensures everyone will get an even balance of highs and lows regardless of how much they exert their will. So you may as well chill and enjoy your awareness at every point on the ride, not clinging to highs or fleeing from lows, for that just breeds suffering.

change is inevitable…..unless you’re dealing with a vending machine.
no seriously when we are born into this world we are given a concept of how the world is or what the world is about but the truth of the world is that it is in a constant state of change. Every person that lives here is the sum total of their life long experiences. Every social structure is the sum total of all of the people that belong to it and the world is the sum total of all of the people that live here. As people move from place to place and job to job and die and pass on the world changes into a different place every second of every day. So the only choice you and I really have is how we are going to affect that change, in a negative way or a posiive way. Surprisingly when the we change the world around us will change.

@thatofficialguy,

intentional change is seeing the contrast between two points then defining the steps needed to enact it. you need to be able to fully visualize what you are talking about or it remains abstract and often, unchangeable
