To Ilchi Lee, change is something that is a constant in life. You can always expect change, beginnings and endings, and must adapt in order to succeed and find spiritual awakening.
"Change is the very nature of Nature. if there's one thing that doesn't change, it is the fact that everything changes. In the Korean tradition of Tao, this is called impermanence." Lee said in his book, "Change: Realizing Your Greatest Potential."
The idea of impermanence is that everything is constantly changing. When you acknowledge and accept impermanence, you can be free to attempt to reach your goals and occupy your thoughts with other things. This is a first step on the way to enlightenment and fully understanding your individuals limits and capabilities.
People go through many changes in their lives. They age and grow and accept new responsibilities. Loved ones pass away, some individuals have health issues or move to new places. And through it all we must remain true to ourselves while making way for new experiences.
When something changes you may not always be ready for it. But you have all the power and knowledge in your heart and mind to face every challenge that comes your way. If a change occurs and you find yourself thrown off balance, spend time meditating. You can think on the change and what may be different in your life now, or simply focus on your breath to calm yourself. Spiritual awakening can help to allow you a sense of stillness and stability in a world of constant noise and chaos.
If you find that change makes you anxious and unable to focus, you may want to spend time meditating every day. This practice of coming into ones self can truly assist you in finding a sense of peace even when strong emotions may be surging through you. Even simple breathing exercises, like inhaling for five seconds, pausing and exhaling for five seconds can help to keep your blood pressure even and your mind more at ease.
Ilchi Lee practices meditation with visualization, often thinking of places that are full of energy and life, like Sedona, Arizona, to assist him in achieving spiritual awakening. You, too, can try this if you have a particularly calming place in mind to aid you in remaining still and accepting change.
