Revealed: The “Anti-Change Factor” (Part 2)

posted by Guy Finley

In these times, where social appearance is more important than spiritual substance, what has become our longing to change is really the unconscious desire to control not just the shape of our bodies — according to prevailing values — but to dominate our environment as well, regardless of the cost. In case it’s not clear, such “control” is the antithesis of change; it is in conflict with it. Cases abound if we take off our blinders to see them.

Consider for a moment the growing popularity of “anti-aging” products. In truth, all these salves, pills, shots, and drinks do is one thing: mask the fact that from the moment it’s born one’s body is doing what it has been created to do: flower and fade away, having passed on whatever perfection of understanding it may have gained for what it went through on its brief journey on this earth. But dying is part of changing, not the end of it, as most fear. And, regardless of retarding the inevitable, one’s conflict with life’s natural changes still rages on beneath the skin in one’s heart and mind; covering a battlefield with plastic flowers doesn’t change what’s taking place there, or what lies just under its ravaged soil. Which brings me to the reason for this blog:

Something lurks within all spiritually sleeping beings that doesn’t just serve to limit revelation — to inhibit the real and meaningful changes it brings — but that acts, decisively, to prohibit this kind of deep transformation. What is this agent of spiritual darkness? We will call it…the “anti-change factor.”
Resistance to revelation is the anti-change factor; and since human beings tend to automatically resist anything unwanted — whatever it may be that reveals their character and lives are nothing like what they’ve imagined them to be — this means that all such revelations are rejected on the spot… [to be continued]
