Allow the change to happen

“Allow the change to happen” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

It is funny for me to look at my older writings because I am like – Who was that? Who wrote that? It is funny because writing makes you see how you were before compared to now. Writing forces you to take a record of how you are changing over time.

But how come change – which is the only thing in life that we can guarantee – how come the only guarantee in life is still one of the hardest things to accept about life?

It is also funny that we love change just as much as we resist it. We love it when our situation is changing into what we think is admirable, and we don’t like it when our situation is changing into what we think is not admirable. But do we truly know what is ultimately admirable for our lives or our situation?

A couple of years ago, I was on the road to become a doctor and now with joy and confidence I say that the best thing that ever happened to me is that I am no longer going to become a doctor anymore. I feel great about that now, but how do I know I will still feel great about that another couple of years down the line?

The truth is I don’t know how I will feel in the future; I just know how I feel now. And all we ever do know is now. So, as tricky and as foreign as change can seem, let us learn to soften our resistance towards change. Let us learn to accept change because to accept change is to accept life; and to accept life is to open the door to our true joy and happiness in life.

Blessings, Babajide

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are – and
