" Constant … "

You alone are wise
You alone are all consuming fire
And I want to press in to know
This God that so amazes me
You go after every heart
You won't rest until we know
You are constant, You are constant
You Go after every heart
And Your glory is in all the earth
But Your heart is for a people who
Will constantly be running after You
~ Watermark ~ Constant ~

There are loads of workshops, courses and challenges available for any of us to gain some wisdom.  But when some think that all their problems will be cured, like magic, in one session, they may be in for a “rude” awakening.

Life is always in flux, ever changing.  
We are not the same person we were yesterday, we are not even the same person we woke up to this morning ...

Now, all is not wasted in attending these sessions if our approach is wholehearted openness, it does make a difference ... it’s just that the work doesn't end there.
It is about LIVING it not just having a place for it on your resume.  We all know people who have taken every “amazing” session, workshop and course offered only to find them to be a unkind, negative and difficult person to be in company with.  Perhaps they registered for one of the following ...

workshop one - we will uncover your true awakening  
how can someone else find that for me or at least know where to look?  And from what I am learning ... it is a life long process and not a flip of a switch...

workshop two - we will fix your life problems   ...
how can someone else fix my life problems when they themselves are hypocritical?

workshop three - we will help you get fit fast  
how can someone else help me get healthy when they don't practice what they preach?

Confession time: I have participated in all three scenarios and did really well ... for a while.  Yet I’ve learned that it is taking weeks, months if not years to feel and make a difference ... because this becomes a way of “being” ... a way of life.  It is not an act, it is not for show, it is not a profession and it is not for a special time ... it IS always.  

Because rather than looking out there, start within and you will find what you’ve been looking for  it is a constant search to uncover who you really are.

As Mahatma Gandhi said “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”  It truly is.  And when you are truly in alignment with your actions &words, there is less resistance to what is.  

Maybe life can best be described as ... Life = Change = Life  where we can choose perfect alignment living a sincere life which even makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.
