I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Everything is either growing or it’s dying.” It’s a simple expression that sums up the Universal Law of Rhythm, which states that the energy in the universe is like a pendulum. When something swings to the right, then it must swing to the left. Everything in existence is involved in a dance—swaying, flowing, and swinging back and forth.

The one thing we can count on is change, as everything is energy, and energy is constantly changing form. Why is then, that we seem to have a meltdown whenever change occurs?
We experience the Law of Rhythm everywhere and in everything. We see it in our sunrises and sunsets, in the ocean’s tide, in our seasons, our growing children, our moods, bank accounts, relationships, our economy, and even in our businesses.

Everything goes through cycles, yet everything has a rhythm or a pattern. What seems to be random is actually very orderly.
I believe that it is part of our divine mission to simply go with this flow- to embrace change and allow it to stretch and expand us. It is through our divine wisdom that we recognize the signs that it is time for us to change—to grow and prepare ourselves for it. Eric Hoffer says, “In times of change, the learners will inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”

Here’s a good example for you: It’s no doubt the world has been changed by the Internet. In one instance, print publications—newspapers and magazines are being shut down right and left because most people get their information and entertainment on-line. However, there are a few newspapers that have embraced the new paradigm by offering on-line publications, and are achieving great success because of their flexibility and innovation. Instead of resisting the change, they embraced it and figured out a way to co-exist gracefully with the shift.
Wayne Dyer talks about behaving like a palm tree in times of change and refers to the flexibility of the palm, as opposed to an oak tree, in the midst of a storm. The oak tree will snap in half, while the palm tree can bend completely horizontally, only to snap back up once the storm has passed.

Once we acknowledge and accept that the Law of Rhythm is at work, not only can we learn to adapt to change, but we can also relax into our lives with grace and ease. Instead of feeling guilty for taking a few days off from work, for example, realize that the amount of energy you put into your work previously, has been exhausted. Your energy must be replenished, and it is through rest that it is. By knowing this, you can then be gentle with yourself and predict the patterns of your own behavior, and schedule time for work and time for rest.

Expect change. It is inevitable. Instead of retreating in fear, uncertainty and doubt, look to it as natural progression and divine opportunity for us to expand into our absolute brilliant selves.
