While listening to a novel today on the route, a phrase caught my attention....in regards to "Changes"..."you can change for the better or for the worst."
Somehow, I naively thought that change only is in the direction of good...not that you can become worse.
We are not sitting in neutral, we are either going one way or the other...and this is huge.
Instead of standing still and NOT making changes to improve, we can actually make changes to become worse than we were.
Each opportunity we are choosing...and we are not choosing to stay the same, our needle either moves forward or backward....better or worse.
Changing for the worse is a choice we make as we continue not to better ourselves or make life improvements.
Who would have thought life changes could be making us into a worse person than we already are.
Worse in the sense of karma and adding to our inability to follow our truth or authenticness....but to become worse at being our true self.
This gives me a visual gauge....where I am unable to stand still, but either make a choice to move towards betterment or into being worse.
A good thing to know as we approach another year.
In life we do not stand still....until we die.
I see our lives as on a continum of growing either darker or lighter...we don't get to hide in sameness. But rather are adding to ourselves in degrees of better or worse.
Which way are your choices moving you...into the dark away from you....or into the sunlight of being your true self?
