Resistance to change plagues all evolutionary processes. It’s easy to get locked into seeing things a certain way and become unable to see something differently even when the evidence is there. Galileo challenged Aristotle’s gravitational theory that things will fall to earth at a rate depending on their size by simultaneously dropping two objects of different weights off the Leaning Tower of Pisa. They landed at the same time, but the observers couldn’t see that because of their fundamental beliefs. Despite the physical proof, they continued to hold on to the old thinking. Giordano Bruno correctly substantiated the Copernican model of heliocentrism by showing the sun was just another star moving in space and Earth was just a planet in its orbit. He was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition and burned at the stake in 1600.
It’s not what you look at that matters. It’s what you see. Henry David Thoreau
Resistance to change will always attempt to halt progressive development. Even the most educated can have a tough time with shifting to the next gear. It’s important to validate what has brought you to your present point and be willing to let go in order to improve and move forward into the abundance of what’s next. You won’t become what you are intended to be while remaining what you are.
Spiritual Contemplation: Are you so happily attached to a position and habit that you are blind to the current information pointing to your next step? What is your concern about making a shift?
Affirmation: I see and embrace the emerging Truth! I release my resistance to change!
