Open your self-awareness as you focus on topics starting with the letter A. In-joy!
You probably remember learning in high school about Charles Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection. He determined that “…it is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent; it’s the one most adaptable to change.”
Since change is one of those inevitable life things, in order to survive, thrive and hopefully even evolve, humans must adapt to any condition or situation we find ourselves in.
Rather than whining or getting stuck in the muck of victimhood.
Since the planet is transitioning at warp-speed lately, adapting is a super-vital skill to master, yes?
WHAT IS ADAPTING?
Adapting means being flexible; allowing rather than resisting; being appropriate to circumstances. Spiritually, adapting is trusting the process as it unfolds.
Excuse the sixties reference, but adapting means going with the flow.
As another cliché aptly says: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, hoping for different results. In other words, not adapting.
Adapting means being willing to change your perspective, especially the view you have of yourself. But, if past negative programming is running you, you’ll be trying to adapt to a belief system based on false notions. (I can help with that)
You're not adaptable if you're stuck in fear about how life needs to be. Notice that you probably have dozens of loudly demanding requirements like that every instant of your day.
When priorities change, the need to adapt becomes apparent. Like realizing you don’t have the stamina to stay out late on a work night, you can choose to have fun in other (earlier) ways.
Fear-based emotions make it difficult to adapt. Let emotions be felt as they cycle through, recognizing they’re just triggers of past unresolved events. They will cease if you don't push them down.
YOU'RE ALREADY ADAPTING
Truth is, you're adapting all the time whether you consciously know it or not.
Lately, you’ve adapted to not getting a haircut or are adapting to the botched one you (or a loved one) did.
Maybe you’ve adapted to dealing with endless Zoom calls, home schooling your children, wearing a mask, watching Netflix, baking your own bread.
Maybe it was challenging at first, but once your resistance and resentment went away, it got uber easier.
JUST DO IT
As the world keeps on cha-cha-changing, adapting is your new yoga position.
Regularly exercising your adaptability muscle will empower you in other areas of your life. It gives your primitive, fear-based consciousness evidence that you can handle things. That calms it down significantly.
Though some of the adaptations you’re doing might seem small compared to what others are having to do, to your fear-based consciousness they’re all the same.
(WAYS TO) BETTER ADAPT
Self-observation is a great first step.
Notice those automatic, fear-based thoughts whenever you’re faced with needing to adapt. And catch those loud demands about needing life to be a certain way. No need to deny them, simply see them for what they are: Just fears.
Those thoughts are only powerful if you buy into them as true. Observing them pops their disempowering bubble.
Keep in mind that this current adapting run is not forever – yes, eventually you’ll be able to get a professional haircut. Once again you’ll be bitching about sitting in traffic on the way to work, complaining that store-bought bread isn't half as good as homemade.
You probably won't miss wearing a mask, however.
So, for now, have yourself a mahvelous adapt-acation. You will be fine even with a terrible haircut, and think about how much money you’re saving on gas!
