If everything changes, will I still be the same person?

You may be worried that massive change may wind up making you unrecognizable. A valid concern, after all, I have worked hard to make something of myself and I want to keep it! Well the good news is; you will always be the child of God you were created as and God will always know that. On the other hand we must change along with life and the world we find ourselves a part of. We must be open to change and to look at things differently as we proceed with the future. Recognizing that we are an integral part of this world and what we say and do does make a difference. We do not live in a vacuum and cannot expect to simply exist without impact. The phrase “EVERYTHING must change” … should be on your mind at all times, subtly working on every thing you do, shaping and directing, leading you into a richer, deeper, fuller experience of creation. You are a wonderful expression of all that you have been a part of over your whole life and now, to know that you have some control you must decide to be proactive in your relationships and interactions with the world and its people. The combined influence of all of us will determine where we go and how things will look in the future. The creator is our partner in the change that will inevitably come … your decision is how will your participation look?
