Many of us are making powerful changes in our material lives. How are those related to inner changes? As we grow internally, we can outgrow outer circumstances in our lives: Where we live, how we live, with whom we live or work or share time, for instance. Then we need to make outer changes to make more space for our continued inner expansion. Those changes can require us to put our attention and effort on outer tasks that support our inner growth for a time, which means less time for our inner ease and grace. While change is essential for growth, we also need balance between change and stability. After great change, we need to allow our bodies and minds to rest and recuperate so that our energy can again flow freely and we can continue to grow.
