Change by John Cali

Quite a few folks Spirit and I have talked with lately are having a hard time accepting all the changes in their lives. Many of them are seeing so many profound, sometimes scary, changes on the planet today — and in their own personal and spiritual lives. This includes me. Might you also be one of these?

When I was younger I absolutely hated change. The status quo, even though it may not have been my ideal, was better than facing the uncertainty of change. Sound familiar?

And yet we cannot avoid change. As Spirit has often said, “The only constant in life is change.”

While I don’t disagree with him on that, I would say there’s a bit more to it. He and I have discussed this privately.

Perhaps there is another constant, but one existing beyond our normal lives, whatever “normal” is for each of us. One we can always rely on for comfort and support. One which never ever changes.

Here’s Spirit.


We know how threatening and scary change can be for many of you. Especially today when your planet is inundated with so many daunting changes, with so many drastic shifts away from “the way things used to be.”

As you probably have heard us say before, change is not a bad thing. It’s not the demon many of you make it out to be.

Often change is a “cleansing,” if you will. A cleansing, a clearing out of the old ways so new energy, new ways of being can come in.

We have said many times before — as John pointed out — change is the only constant in life.

But we also agree with him there’s more to it than that. It is the “more to it” we wish to briefly discuss here today.

You’ve probably heard it said you are all one, everything is one. While that’s true, it’s often overused and can seem even trite and trivial.

You probably know what a hologram is. One tiny part of a hologram contains the whole of it. So if you split it into even a million pieces, each piece would hold the vision, the image of the whole.

In the same way, each of you can be seen as a hologram. Each part of you — the human physical part and the divine spiritual part — contains the whole of who you truly are.

And who are you truly? God.

You often see yourselves as separate from God, separate even from your higher selves. But you are not separate. You never have been. You never will be.

To carry this a bit farther, you are also not separate from your dreams, from all you have ever asked for in this lifetime. It’s all a part of who you are.

So, friends, once you let go of the myth of separation, you will find your lives becoming far more joyful and abundant. You will empower yourselves to live the lives of your dreams.

You are one. You are whole. You are God. That will never change.

    Change can most often be challenging for most of us. I have been exceptionally fortunate because my early years in childhood (birth to 5 years old) was nothing but constant change. In my experience I had to embrace change or feel terminally unsafe and insecure.

    Those early years taught me that change was important to embrace and to make the most of regardless of how it might first appear to me. In order to not be in a constant state of fear and uncertainty I learned to go with the flow of whatever might present itself to me. That “survival” technique served me well all through my life and no matter how daunting the changes that presented themselves to me I was able to look for and see what positive outcomes those changes might bring me.

    So, for the most part I do not resist change. In fact, I look forward to the changes with anticipation of how freeing and expansively they will impact my life.

    Change is most certainly the most constant thing in our lives as is the power of divine love.

    Blessings and hugs

      Thank you very much, Shirl.

      As you said, change is the most constant thing in our lives. To me the other constant — the power of divine love — is a great comfort, especially when we’re facing big changes in our lives.

      Love & hugs,

    Thank You, John, for posting this again~!
    As Spirit said, Change is NECESSARY,,, for without change, we would have a condition of Stasis – of inactivity,,, and Life can be compared to a body of water, of any size,,, from a mud-puddle size to a humongous lake~! That body of water must be constantly renewed and refreshed, or it becomes stagnant, and the state of stagnation becomes putrefaction,,, And Putrefaction STINKS~!
    Life is the same way,,, And in all honesty, it is our PERCEPTION of Change that determines its effect on us,,, either by embracing it, and rejoicing in its newness – “What can I do with this~!~?”,,, or by rejecting it, and regretting the loss of what is being added to OR replaced~!
    We have all gone through changes in our lives, if we would but realize that Change is Growth,,,
    If it weren’t, we’d ALL be like newborns, and all that such a state entails~!
    I, too, am a Senior,,, Now, what that means is, I just has more experience at being contrary to the rest of the world~! ( Wide Eyed Grin~! )
    Blessings to you and yours, John, and to all your readers~! Ain’t Life the PIPS~!~?

      Thanks very much, Conshana, for your always-articulate and interesting comments.

    i read this with a wonderful smile on my face. I’m living this now. It only took me my entire life to get here (I’m a Senior by man’s standard), but it is without a doubt the most beautiful place to be.

    If you live in the moment and recognize Creator in each moment, as well as recognize that everything is all the One, there is no change, only amazing and awesome experience. If we make the most of each of these experiences in each of our moments, “change” is removed from our thoughts. There is just “now” and all the marvels that “now” holds.

    Thank you, John and Spirit. Reminders are ways to check our progress.

    In love unconditional,

      Thank you very much, Mikala. I was thinking of you just this morning.

      Like you, it took me my whole life to get here. But it was worth the wait. 🙂

      As you said, there is only the eternal now — and all the marvels that holds for us.

      I hope all is well with you.

      Love & hugs,
