Change

There are three things that are constant in this world : birth, death, and change. Of course you can add one, tax. But we will discuss tax in another post later.

For non-believers of karma and reincarnation, we do not choose the circumstances of our birth and our death. But for those who believe, we are 100% responsible for everything that happen to us including our birth and death. I am included in the latter group.

But our concern here is change. I guess every one agrees that nothing is really permanent in this world. Everything changes. And to believe otherwise, to hold on and not move on, is a perfect recipe of mental illness and the main reason for loneliness.

Seasons change. Our body changes. Relationship changes. Our views and philosophies change.

That is why, we have to accept change. To be sure, we have to welcome it. Or maybe, it is best to become an agent of change.

Every new year, many people make resolutions. All for change; to become new, to become better.  It is an admirable thing to do. Yet many try, only to find themselves doing the same things over and over again.  Still, in trying, one has planted the seed for change.

What about the Philippines? Well, we just hope there will be change. But instead of just merely hoping, can we not become real agents of change for our country?

And for the world? Oh, how many times have I heard that, if I change, the world changes. And that's it my friends. To change the world, let's start with our own selves.

  1. May this serve an an eye opener for people who are so good in complaining but so lazy to do their moves. "Be the change you want to see in the world" as Mahatma Gandhi said.

    So instead of complaining why not do the first move. If all of us will do this, our country will be awesome.

  3. Thanks for this nice article. It is indeed very true. The only permanent thing in life is change. Sometimes, it's hard to cope up with changes but you are right, it's even harder to expect for a major change without doing your part.

    Have a great 2012! :)

  4. I agree with you Jun, everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. :-)

  5. What a beautiful very well said piece. Change starts from oneself I agree. Hope this article finds it way to all Filipinos both living in our country and overseas.

  11. Indeed, only the three are constant - birth, death and change. However, I guess change is something which people usually feel intimidated. Maybe because of its uncertainties, or maybe we just become so familiar.
