Meditation: Accept Change and Transition

The gift of an even mind is that we create the space that allows us to accept change in our lives. Change is the only constant; when we observe the impermanent nature of things, we can be with what is without getting upset about the many things that are outside of our control. When we are in a state of discomfort or caught in a negative thinking pattern, we can find peace in knowing that this too shall pass. This gives us permission to be with what is with detached awareness. Everything is continuously changing, evolving and transforming. The only thing that is changeless is our true nature, that which is untouched by the manifested world. The mantra Aham Bahmasmi (the core of my being is the ultimate reality) reminds us that our true nature is changeless while our world is in constant flux.
