But our journey towards the light is often as arduous and lengthy as our descent has been. We make progress little bit by little bit, and never as fast as we want to. Frequently, we throw in the towel and revert to our old style of being and living, righteously, and with exasperation. It's been two weeks... and nothing's happened. It's useless. Why should I bother? Things will never change.
But they will and they do, slowly, over time. Fully integrating change into our lives is an evolutionary process, and requires daily attention and care. We feel as if we are getting nowhere, but if we keep at it, keep making the next best choice, and the next one, and the next, then one day, unexpectedly, we will see that we have made the complete loop, and that we have learned to live differently at last.
Change in my life results from the daily attention I am willing to give it. I trust the process and keep on doing the next right thing.
