Change is The Law of Nature

Bhagavad Gita: Law of Nature

First and foremost I would like to begin this blog by wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Janmashtami. May the blessings and teachings of Lord Krishna guide you in every aspect and every moment of your life.

On the pious occasion of Janmashtami, I would like to share a few words on one of the most potent messages of the Bhagavad Gita. Change is the Law of Nature.

According to the Gita, everything changes. There are no exceptions to this. Be it our feelings, emotions, thoughts, physical body or outlook towards life. This message is so true and potent. Even as you are reading this, your body has subtly changed, millions of cells have died and new ones have been created!

Change is a very important factor in finding success in life, yet it is common knowledge that we resist change the maximum, especially if it pushes us out of our comfort zone. Being in the technology profession, I have observed, that some people are quite averse to or to some extent even antagonistic towards change. Why go in for a new technology and reinvent the wheel when the existing one is working so well? Why try a new method when the current one has already given successful results? Simply put, why rock a steady boat? All these arguments do have their own merit, there is no doubt regarding that, but adapting to change and accepting something new also leads to new beginnings and more importantly, new learnings.

Attempting something new gives the freedom to make mistakes and go wrong! Many may not agree with this sentiment, but it is true and when you find success with the newly adapted change, then the taste of that success is incredibly sweet. Being IT professionals we face this dilemma very regularly. We are already so well versed with Technology A, then why bother to get into Technology B? There are innumerable reasons we give ourselves to avoid attempting something new. Learning curve is too steep, will take a lot of time, deadlines are crazy and so on. These are all valid reasons and definitely have their own merit, but if we need to change then we have to change our way of thinking so as to be able to successfully surpass these hurdles. We have to look at new solutions and new opportunities and use our existing experience to enhance change in our life and work. Remember that while you are mulling over these questions, someone has already started adapting to and accepting new changes, which tomorrow may take that individual faster towards the same success which you are also hoping to achieve.

In our daily life too sometimes changing our way of thinking can lead us to a better solution to our problems. Changing our thought process from negative to positive can influence and enrich our lives to a great extent. We will see how well prepared we will become to face any challenges that life throws at us whether personally or professionally. Positive thinking is a huge step forward to accepting change and living a fruitful life. Life throws challenges at us continuously and many of these challenges influences us to change the way we live and think. Rigidity to this change can lead to unfortunate circumstances and we will instead lose more by not changing then we would have gained by changing our thought and outlook towards the situation we are faced with.

It is noteworthy to mention here that change is never easy but it would be foolhardy to not change at all and rather face the negative impact of being so unsympathetic towards change. So let not let our one dimensional thinking get in the way of a glorious and happy future that we will assuredly enjoy if we adapt to change responsibly.

On this note, I once again wish all of you a very Happy Janmashtami and pray that Lord Krishna bestows his choicest blessings on you and your loved ones. Be happy and joyous. Always.
