The following lesson is hinting to things very shortly to become
manifest... So, pay attention, open up and allow HaShem to speak His
Words of Living Torah directly into your mind and heart...

Seasons change at regular intervals, yet the weather is continually
unpredictable. As much as we strive for stability in life, there are
always factors that create instability. Life will always march forward,
yet along what path, who can say?
Change in inevitable. One who is open to change and flows with change
with survive and thrive regardless of how hard or easy the times may be.
Change is movement, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, whatever it be one
must surrender to the flow.
Change brings with it things that we often like and others do not. Other
times other changes come bringing that which we do not like and that
which others do like. Who then is to judge whether or not change is good
or bad? It all depends upon whom you ask.
In life, in politics, in society and in culture change follows the same
path of movement as does the seasons. We always move from one form to
another and then back again. Yet, however constant the movement, the
changes that come restore somewhat what once was, but never exactly the
same thing. This is called progress.
Societies change as do the individuals within them. Governments change;
priorities change; loyalties change; fortunes change, power always
changes hands; this is the inevitability of life. Nothing on earth can
change this natural course of events.
Heaven looks down upon the ways of humanity and guides us as a parent
guides children. As invisible as we believe the Hand of Heaven is, in
truth, its Way is clear for all to see. All one must do is allow oneself
to see with open eyes and peer into the winds of change. No change comes
suddenly without warning. All change is gradual. This is the Grace of
Heaven to show us the way.
Movement is life, change is inevitable. Change is good for some and bad
for others. This is how natural law works. The wise see the changes as
they approach and prepares to make the best of them. In this way, the
wise ride the tides of change and therefore never face the darkness of
Change is upon us, even now. It is happening all around us. It is
happening in our personal lives, it is happening in our city and in our
country. Heaven is guiding the winds of change. No man can stop it; all
we can do is wisely change our ways to accommodate the new ways ordained
Let the rich be ready to embrace poverty and the poor be ready to
embrace wealth. Let the mighty be ready to be weak and let the humble be
ready to ascend to power. This too is the natural order. It happens all
Try as we may to postpone it or delay it, nevertheless, the natural
order will not be thwarted. Eventually, change will win out, it is
inevitable. We choose whether to make the change easy or hard. As
always, Heaven places the choice firmly in our hands. How then shall we
choose to embrace our destinies?
