Embracing Change is part of a Spiritual Path

In the teachings of Jesus, we find profound wisdom that resonates with the concept of embracing change on our spiritual journey. One such example is found in the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus speaks about the importance of letting go of worry and trusting in the divine providence:
"Observe the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single cubit to your stature?" (Matthew 6:26-27, Lamsa Version)

In this passage, Jesus encourages his followers to trust in the inherent goodness of the universe and to let go of the burdens of worry and anxiety. He uses the example of the birds, who rely on the natural rhythms of life for their sustenance, to illustrate the principle of divine providence. By reminding his listeners of their inherent value and worthiness, Jesus invites them to surrender to the flow of life and embrace change with faith and confidence.

This teaching serves as a powerful reminder that change is a natural part of life and that by trusting in the wisdom of the divine, we can navigate the uncertainties of life with grace and ease. It encourages us to let go of our fears and worries, knowing that we are supported and cared for by a loving and compassionate universe.

By incorporating this teaching from Jesus into our understanding of embracing change on our spiritual path, we are reminded of the importance of faith, trust, and surrender. Just as the birds of the air rely on the divine providence for their needs, so too can we trust in the wisdom of life to guide us through the ever-changing landscape of our spiritual journey.

In this time of change in many aspects of our lives we are learning to let go and let God. This one idea is the cornerstone of a spiritual path well-traveled. This is knowing that God is in charge, and all is well. This is moving forward knowing that the outcome is always in Divine Order.
