Attached to the “Idea of Things” is the theme of my May 2021 newsletter message; here is some of the body of the message.
? ? ?
Shifts and change are inevitable in life. Some of us manage change quite easily. For others of us, they throw us for a loop.
Sometimes we are truly attached to what has been lost because it feeds our heart and soul, but at other times we are simply attached to the “idea of it.”
Our daily habits, jobs, routines and schedules, family and friends time, as well as our passions, hobbies, and social activities bring us a sense of structure, balance, normalcy, and purpose. And our loved ones, passions, and social activities bring joy into our lives.
These all work together to create a foundation that we stand on. And without realizing it, we count on these various parts of our life to give us a sense of security and stability.
We also derive our sense of identity from all of this. But is this sense of identity real, or are we holding on to the “idea of things” to feel stable and secure?

Our routines, jobs, relationships, families, and even our passions are outward influences that awaken the sense of safety, stability, balance, love, and joy that is already within us at our core.
Our True Sense of Identity Comes from the Spark of The Creator In Us
In our purest form, we do not need outside influences to create that sense of safety, stability, balance, love, and joy within us. We can access the inner sense of well-being these bring us from within ourselves – at any time, and free of the drama, worry, and unreliability that often comes with “worldly” things, ideas, and values.
Outside influences we often draw our sense of safety, value, and identity from, like our status, what we own, the idea of an intact family, the security of a stable job, being a respected member of society, our political views, etc. are not based on solid, long-lasting foundations. These can easily crumble. And then we feel lost.
They may give us some sense of security and/or identity – at least for a while. However, outside influences we look to are fickle, undependable, and ever-changing.
What’s liked, appropriate, acceptable, and approved changes like the wind. They cannot give us the lasting sense of security and well-being we can find from within.
To connect to our internal sense of security and well-being, we must have a strong connection to our Source Creator. To our True Self. To Spirit.
However, none of us – except for the Masters and the holiest ones of the past and the few among us today, can fully tap into the sense of love and well-being that is within us enough to completely avoid the feelings of loss that change brings with it.
We CAN Lessen the Sense of Loss Change Brings with It
When we cultivate a stronger connection to Spirit, we feel a greater sense of self-love and inner peace. We then automatically start to derive our sense of identity and well-being from there – instead of from the tidbits of weak and unpredictable offerings that the world offers us.
And creating and growing our connection to Spirit doesn’t necessarily need formal practices. They do help calm us so that we can more easily tune into it. But simply embracing joy, our passions, being loving, kind, and compassionate to others, and reveling in all that life has to offer us ignite that spark of connection.
The ebbs and flows of life are regularly going to create change in our lives. We can never get away from it. But like everything else we experience as difficult, our best option is to …
? make peace with it – and work to overcome the bad feelings changes and their disruptions cause us, and
? to come from a place of love – for ourselves, and others – as much and as quickly as possible.
Connecting to and coming from a place of peace and love feels good. Doing so connects us more firmly to Spirit – and to the love and wisdom it holds.
And the more we come from a place of peace and love the easier it becomes to do so. The easier it is to do, the more we do it, and the more it becomes second nature to us.
We then start to create a vortex of peace and love around us, and as we go out into the world we are surrounded by more peace and love than before.
And one day, we realize that coming from a place of peace and love has become our default position.
This had not happened overnight, or because of the showering of fairy dust upon us. It is because we consciously decided to choose to come from a place of peace and love – again and again – and we are reaping the benefits.
