Last weekend I was reflecting on all the changes in my
personal life this past year. My son had gotten married and then
decided to move to Africa for two years. I had moved from the
USA’s East Coast to the Northern Rocky Mountains. Some of my
years-long relationships faltered and vanished. Other new
relationships sprung up and flourished.
And those were just “the tip of the iceberg.” I was actually
a bit startled at how many changes I’d experienced, how many
“rites of passage.” And, indeed, how many dramatic, unexpected
Passages, changes, are an
inevitable part of our earthly experiences. No one ever avoids
them. We resist them because they herald in a new, uncertain era
in our lives.
We humans like predictability,
certainty. But that is an impossible dream. Nothing in heaven or
on Earth is ever totally predictable or certain.
The only predictable certainty is passages.
Here are Joseph’s thoughts:
You have heard it said many times — the only constant in life is change.
Nothing ever remains the same, even from one moment to the next. Your
bodies, for example — they are constantly regenerating themselves. They are
constantly renewing and re-empowering themselves.
That is why you sometimes experience “miraculous” and sudden healings. Your
bodies are constantly changing, and can move from illness to wellness literally
in the blink of an eye.
So, dear ones, change is simply a fact of life. And that applies to us here
in the dimensions of spirit. We — and that “we” includes your souls who live
eternally with us in spirit form — relish change.
Because change means growth. And growth means joy. Joy is our purpose in
these realms. Joy is your soul’s purpose. And when you are in tune with your
soul, you are joy-filled. You are growing.
You cannot not grow. You, on the human level, can certainly resist growth.
But you cannot avoid it.
It is your resistance to change and growth that causes so many of your
challenges in your earthly lives. Let go of the resistance and your problems
will vanish. We guarantee it!
Dear ones, predictability and certainty are truly, as John said, impossible
dreams. You do not exist for — your being derives no value from — predictability
Growth is the name of the game. The game of life. And games are supposed to
We know that. Your soul knows that.
So why not join us in the fun? You will anyway, sooner or later.
You cannot avoid the passages. And, ultimately, you cannot avoid the fun and the
