Today's Money Energy Exercise is: A Change Metaphor – The Egg.
Today, we have only a simple Change Metaphor for
you to read through as the exercise.
If you read it out aloud and it “becomes yours”
with that first person phrasing, it’ll be even better still.
Here we go:
I often have this feeling of stress and
desperation because I am quite convinced nothing has changed. I look
myself and all I see is what I always see.
Same house, same furniture, same pile of bills, same everything. I work
and NOTHING is changing. I thought that again about something the other
this large egg came to my mind.
It just sits there in its nest of straw.
It doesn't DO anything.
It doesn't change shape, it doesn't change colour.
It doesn't pulsate. It doesn't roll around.
You could look at it for DAYS AND DAYS and you'd come away thinking that
just that and there was NOTHING GOING ON.
And yet, and if one was to extend one's feelers in a different way, one
become aware of the RIOT OF CHANGE that is taking place INSIDE the egg, a
of re-organisation, feeding and growth, of total unfoldment as a bunch
cells become a fish thing, which in turn becomes ever more defined and
complex, more organised in every way, more mature, more fantastic with
heartbeat, every breath that passes.
One day, and we know not when, the egg that lay so motionless for so
and seemed to be nothing but an inert shape will begin to rock, and then
crack, and the newly born dragonet will emerge, spread its wings for the
time and take its first small steps.
Yes, there was change.
Even if we thought there wasn't.
Now, over to you. Think of a thing that you think
is NOT changing and think again. All things change, all the time. It’s
