The Only Constant

Posted: January 17th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | 3 Comments »

Late last night, mid-January, Connecticut finally got it’s first real winter snow since the October 2011 storm that ravaged the entire state.

I pulled back my curtains to watch the snow fall. With the comfort of warmth in a home, we can wistfully romanticize a snow storm. Indeed it is beautiful to watch tiny droplets of frozen water fall from the sky and blanket everything. Each droplet’s resting spot makes for what looks like a clean slate.

A fresh snowfall can seem to “white wash” everything around us, even of our own psyche. But underneath still lies the reality of our inner landscape.

The month of January, like a fresh snowfall, usually inspires us to see a new year’s mark as a point in time to set about making positive changes in our lives. Notoriously though, our good intentions usually fizzle out.

Why? Why do they so often sputter out and become yet again another “oh well, there’s always next year” cliché?

I’ve come to realize that it’s because our inner truths will always still be there — unless we face them down and heal them.

We humans tend to stubbornly cling to wanting to have the construct of our personal reality stay the same. We want circumstances and certain people in our lives around us to change, but we ourselves don’t want to change. Or, the exact opposite is sometimes desired — we want to change but still have everything and everyone else around us not to change.

Long ago I came to a deep realization and have since had fun spouting off a self-made quote …

“The only constant in the Universe is change.” ~ Chérie


Nothing, absolutely nothing in the known Universe ever stays the same. Even a grain of sand or the smallest newest fandangle particle discovered in Quantum Physics are subject to the law of change.

Things change. It’s the only constant. Period.

Making deliberate changes in this new collective consciousness linear-minded year wasn’t in any of my plans — but apparently, Divine Intelligence had. I will honor It’s heeding … I’ve learned the hard way what happens when I don’t.

I will honor the new adventures that are brewing on my horizon by being open-minded and willing to examine my inner landscape. I will embrace the only constant, change.

I will also always and forever treasure the lessons and the loves that are now a part of my past. To do otherwise, to me, seems dishonorable to any of the ‘entities of we’ that I was blessed enough to have forged with people.

How will you embrace the only constant?

    Kahuna :) – but I gotta pull your toes apart on this one cause I know you didn’t coin the phrase “the only Constant in the Universe is Change.”
    Overall – Great post! Liberty rocked it for ya!

    KaiKu, until you chomped on me today on the phone, as to the fact that I wasn’t the originator of this quote, I was in ignorant bliss.

    I had no idea at all that some Greek philosopher dude, a zillion years ago, came up with the same conclusion while contemplating his control issues too.

    But in the twit-like spirit of Conan O’Brian, I am going to say that YOU are wrong … I did indeed come up with the quote first, because, for the sheer miracle that such a brilliant idea popped out of my brain, without any prior knowledge of the said Greek philosopher dude, I get to take the credit. So there.
