Being the change requires the ability to embrace paradox and understand that things that appear to be opposites can both be true in the same place without conflict, just from a different perspective.
At some point each of us feels small. When we call upon Source (God/Goddess/Universe), as that inclusive All, that is so much more than us, there is also the knowledge that Source is within us. We are incredibly sophisticated biological machines made up of trillions of cells that work in synergy with each other and they are manufactured one cell at a time from a bowl of cereal, an apple, a sandwich, what but God could do that?
We are male and female. We are in a constant state of being born, rediscovering ourselves in each moment. We are in a constant state of dying, one cell at a time. The trick is to understand that while appearing opposite these aspects need not “oppose” each other. One is merely there to allow the other to be experienced as it would not be possible otherwise. It is therefore a blessing however it may appear.
An open heart can mourn the passing of a loved one while celebrating their life. An open heart can feel disappointment at losing while rejoicing for the one who won. An open heart can embrace you and let you go at the same time. An open heart at peace with paradox can change the inner world and the outer world! Change is after all, the only constant.

I was born and raised a Central New Yorker but lived 18 yrs. in Va Bch, VA. I am the mother of two young men, who are 31and 11 yrs. of age. I have been doing Reflexology since I was 11 yrs old, I have been a teaching Reiki Master for 13 yrs and have been Dr. Mom for my family using therapeutic grade essential oils as our medicine for 8 yrs. Having come from a functional family but living many years in a megalopolis combined with many years of being a catalyst for healing, gives me a varied point of view. Perspective is one of my favorite playgrounds! If you’d like a consultation for Reiki or aromatherapy or soul integration/inner child play please feel free to contact me at vaw4beacon *at* yahoo.com, Blessings for your highest and best, Vicki Willoughby.
