"God grant me the serenity to change the things I cannot change." How difficult it sometimes is to change things, especially if it involves more than one person. The more people involved the more interpretations, personalities, goals, and methods to bring about change.
I may choose to make a change in my behavior, thoughts, or physical presence. Some things may be easier to do than others. The deeper or more spiritual the change, the more effort is required and yet greater the reward.
Meditation can help us recognize the things to be changed at the same time give us serenity. I used meditation before, during and after each chemotherapy session to change my attitude towards it. I learned to let go of fear, doubt, and negativity. Serenity provided my body the optimal environment for the chemotherapy to flow through me.
Has meditation worked for you? How have you made changes?
