Animals who adapt survive. Animals who survive evolve. Are you, as a human, adapting as rapidly as you need to in order to evolve during this human lifetime?
Survivors adapt to their skill set
If you can’t sing, you won’t seek a career in music. If you love technology, that’s where you’ll go for your profession. If you love to be with people, you’ll find work among them. If you’re not a detail person, you won’t choose a detailed activity. If you’re a loner, you’ll develop your work alone.
As you mature, your skills and passion become more apparent. You’ve been drawn to your gifts all of your life. Look closely at the places you shine. Define your subtle skill sets, not just the obvious one. It took me years to figure out that one of my most special gifts is the ability to see the overview and show others connections they don’t immediately recognize.
Look closely at your skills. The most unique ones may be the ones you take for granted. Observe your unique differences and build on them.
Survivors either adapt to their environment or move to a more suitable one
As I grow older, I welcome a smaller space to care for. I have released several levels of belongings in order to do that. If you dislike the cold, move to a warmer climate. Or, if you like outdoor physical activity, move out of the city.
What environment do you need to be in for the most support at this point in your life?
Be flexible in your choices. Be open to supportive change.
Like the animals, we need to adapt in order to evolve
In nature, the animals who are the strongest and most adaptable not only survive, but they pass on their skill sets and strengths to their offspring, who are then better equipped to adapt and thrive in their environment.
That also holds true for people. A prime example is technology. Those who have the ability to understand and use technology will be in demand for jobs. Those who prefer more physical jobs will have a more difficult time since that same technology is gradually replacing the more repetitive physical work.
How adaptive are you? How are you honing your survival skills?
To survive, we need to evolve
I’m very far behind in the use of my mobile phone because I had a landline for years. But I’m way ahead of the majority of people my age in the use of a computer and software programs for communication. Focus on what calls to you and get really good at it.
Look at how the world is changing and let go of the familiar in order to move forward
It does me no good to wish for or hang on to the way things used to be. That time is never coming back. I have to grow to keep up. I have to keep learning and changing my beliefs. I have to let go and embrace the new. Keeping up with constant change can keep you very busy.
Everyone can grow
It would be easier for me to master my phone if I were around young people who were better at it that I am. That’s how I got comfortable with Skype – a younger person helped me make the first call.
But I also go adventuring. I now have a vLog. I learned two new programs that simplify my book production. I know more than I think I do and with persistence I’m moving forward and owning it.
But you have to be willing to press forward and through.
How are you adapting and evolving in order to enrich your life experience? Make more positive, concise forward-moving choices and watch how easy life gets.
Embrace the inevitable constant change
The truth is that the world is changing so rapidly that we have to keep exploring in order to even keep up.
My current focus is participating in group energy meditations.
I’m also evolving my inner work to embrace the unseen world, looking for ways to explore and understand and report back.
Don’t dwell on the past
Whatever is familiar, whatever we think we cherish, is either gone or going. There’s nothing to hold on to, nothing to go back to. We must embrace the present, adapt as much as we can, and allow our personal evolution to do just that – to evolve. Emerge, change form, go with the flow and respond with a clear heart to what shows up.
Life is about adapting. But the most exciting part is about evolving.
