Nature shows us that change is a constant in this process we call physical life. The seasons take us through the process of birth, life, death, and rebirth. Birth in the spring, life in the summer, the ageing process and harvest in the autumn and death in the winter to be reborn again the following spring.
Our physical body also renews itself continuously with cells constantly being produced, and then replaced to ensure our body functions optimally.
We are conscious at birth and we are registering the experience. Although our cognitive proceses are undeveloped, we respond to the primal instinct of survival that is triggered by fear for our physical safety. If we look at the way most babies are born, we are crazy to think that it does not cause an effect. The pre cognitive brain then associates change with 'not safe' and we develop a resistance to change. Once we understand that our resistance to change comes from an old subconscious thought pattern we then allow ourselves the choice of taking Socrate's advice and focussing our energy on building the new rather than fighting the old.
