The Psychology of Change Eludes Most
Scrolling through my Facebook feed this morning, I came across a post made in an Event created by my friend. The event calls for people to come together to change the world. Something about Visionary Change. However, to myself, true wisdom is recognizing that there is nothing to change. Rumi was drunk. He probably went home. Haha.
True wisdom is realizing that there is nothing to change, nothing to transform, and nothing to evolve or revolve. Change is a time-based process. It implies a comparison, that something is less now, but will be “more” later. It’s something else now but will be something else later. So the organism’s thought produces this illusion of a future self to change to, then continues to strive after it everlastingly.
To be free of time is to be free of comparison, is to be free of thought. When one is free of thought, there is no such thing as change or stagnation. There is no such thing as spirituality or enlightenment. There is only ever the authentic and true state of the organism.
Change is a construct of thought and thought only ever produces conflict. Thought says you are something now, it produces an image of the self, then produces an image of a future self and then compares the two images, and says this is change.
In reality, even though there is nothing to change, this is not a change. One can’t change oneself. One can only ever exist in one’s natural state of being. That can only happen one one realizes that there is nothing to change or transform. That the self is an illusion produced by thought. The only reality is the organism, which is the whole of existence.
Change is the absolute ENDING of one thing, and the FRESH NEW BEGINNING of something entirely different. Moving along the same continuum and becoming from THIS to THAT is not change. Making all sorts of actions and thought to bring out change step by step, gradually, is not change. That’s just moving along the same continuum going from one state to another state. That isn’t a change.
Change is when one continuum completely ends, and one’s entire reality changes in an instant. Change, therefore, is not a time-based process, but it happens instantly without time.
