The inevitable release from elementary school, university, graduate school, one career to a new career, one relationship to another, or choosing no relationship, and retiring from career to enter retirement all have a particular commonality. That commonality is the building upon what one has already accomplished.
Certainly, particularly when one is at one of these particular stages of life, no matter, we are all like the “ninja cat”, we’ll get creative, hopefully!!!!
Our situation will create the need for considerable increase in persistence and tenacity within the situation we’ve placed ourselves!
The issue throughout our lives is the resistance to change that we all face. We all may want release from a particular circumstance, but we don’t know what it is or how it is that we can accomplish what it is that we think we want. This is where ingenuity enters our lives.
We’ll start testing various approaches:
Not focused or concentrated on which outcome we want, and eyes, not wide open, we reach out, and whatever comes to us we might think that, that is the only possibility!
One thing for sure is that the inevitable transformations, still have great and many potentials that we may not be aware of. This is where it is important to stay open to many possible potentials ahead of us, continuing to reach and test, hopefully with eyes wide open!!!
Remember, what we are concentrating on is regeneration, adding upon our tools and skills of life to make our lives more interesting, fulfilling and meaningful!!!
We’re all observing the possibilities and potentials of the transitions we find ourselves engaged in. As we are engaging in various activities and experiences, we’re testing our own perceptions about our potential and possibilities to transition to, testing our capacity for personal persistence and tenacity.
What we are all called to do during the transformation of a stage of life to another stage of life is to give it a new form. Therein will rest our new purpose and meaning, how is it that we will fit into a particular scenario, and do we really want to fit in to it!!!!
Certainly transformation entails considerable difficulty, whether it be studying a particular discipline of fitting in, to become better at what it is that one wants to embrace, or cutting back and being more practical in one’s life in order that one can get more out of one’s life than one is presently experiencing. Certainly one will have a tendency to follow one’s propensities.
We come to see within ourselves a sense of a particular joy in this difficulty in creating the need for considerable increase in persistence and tenacity in what it is that we are engaged with, that will ultimately be the tool of our personal and situational tansformaton.
