… by embracing change … Perhaps? And perhaps starting up “again” some of those comforting things that have fallen by the wayside that are within your sphere of influence. We all have one of those spheres, and yes, some are larger than others, but we all do influence … most of us more than we know.

I find the words “Needing to preserve a way of life.” an interesting turn of phrase at a time when there is a worldwide environment of change descending upon us. Upon refection, I understand! All of us have comfort spots, things that become routine in our lives – things we derive pleasure from. For many of us it seems we are losing these comfort spots while racing towards the unknown future. So preserving a way of life is perhaps ambivalent at best! The now and near future seems like a considerable mish-mash of a whole bunch of amalgamated messes, most everywhere one looks. But I think that chaos is a companion to change isn’t it? So the solution … Cherish memories, open your heart and mind to change, and … go with the flow, as best you can!

Summing up: I found a few quotes, some more than a thousand years old, related to what I believe the best m.o. for today is “Go With The Flow”!
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The quality of the imagination is to flow and not to freeze.
All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
Just my thoughts on the subject, thanks for the visit,
