“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – RumiTweet
It feels like so much has changed in my world over the last couple of years and yet, at the same time, my life looks very much the same.
This is how most change happens; beneath the surface, like a seed sprouting underground, maybe even poking through the soil unnoticed until one day, a bloom appears.
With the recent gutting of the reconciliation bill fulfilling Biden’s promise to his corporate donors that, “nothing would fundamentally change”, and the winter months drawing nearer, it feels like stagnation is looming. But maybe it’s just time to go underground; to make some changes beneath the surface; to do some thoughtful, unglamorous work on ourselves and nourish the possibilities within us.
As Jesse said in this episode, “things are going to be about the same tomorrow as they are today.”
And yet, if we pay attention, show up, listen to and learn from each other… we can’t help but be changed by that; we can’t help but grow and sprout and bloom, just like all seeds of change inevitably do when the time is right.
