Nothing really changes in me

Nothing really changes in me. The same old conditioning more or less as when I was a child. The same fears, the same laziness, the same attitude towards others, the same nature of relationships, the same identity and energy.

Despite all I've gone through.

Should I observe and accept this fact that I've not changed?

Will it not be just a way to suppress this difficult feeling that I have lost the game?

Why is it so important for us to change?

Some seek outer change: get married, children, family, education, degrees, career, wealth, house, relocation to different place.

Some seek inner change: psychological development, eradicate fears, be more happy, become more peaceful.

Why do we want to change so earnestly? why?

Or maybe people do not really want to change but are forced? Maybe it is simply the circumstances of life that make them change their life so much? To make such significant and brave modifications in their lives?

Yes, it is very easy to dismiss all this yearning for change with all sorts of dogmas and spiritual beliefs but will it not be just a sophisticated trick to avoid facing the fact that we didn't managed to change? that we failed to change out of weakness, fear and laziness? that our core personality was stronger than anything?

Do we change or change happens???

wow what a honest introspection. You don't give yourself any discounts, do you?

I have these hard thoughts too from time to time. I think all have them.

I don't know why we adore change so much (only good change?), it comes with expectations and dreams we had about life when we were children? Society's pressure? In spite of the fact that we know perfectly well that all this change will go to the garbage the moment we die.

Is it indeed that actually we do not change but change happens or not?

Change is the Universal Law......

Change is the niversal Law of Universe...is identified by Time and Space.

One thing is constant "Self"...Change happens with respect to that constant identity..."Self"...with due time.

If you go beyond this Time and Space...You will find there is no change i.e."Self"

With the help of that change our tendency is to go back to our Origin...i.e."Self".

CHANGE

CHANGE IS NATURE'S LAW, EVERYTHING CHANGES
EVERYBODY CHANGES, ONLY SELF REMAINS WITHOUT
ANY CHANGE. CHANGE IS INEVITABLE, WHICH EVERY
ONE OF US HAS TO ACCEPT.

'YOU' WILL NEVER CHANGE.
FIRST FIND OUT WHO 'YOU' REALLY ARE,
THEN ONE KNOWS D REASONS FOR
EVER CHANGING.

Despite weakness laziness fear, the heart does not give up on you. Even when your low, your heart wants free off all negativity. Strength is not force to conquer our fear laziness it is the natural you, immovable.who doesn't give up growth, who doesnt have to fight to be true to yourself. Has no mind.
When you are not moved from what is true to you.

No tricks

Don't count yourself out.
