Change,Change, and More Change!

Maturity and depth of character



DragonflyThe dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self-realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

The traditional association of Dragonflies with water also gives rise to this meaning to this amazing insect. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.

It seems so fitting for this new stage in my life… change, change, and more change. After two years and eight months, I have resigned from my job and am looking to begin new adventures. Yesterday was bitter-sweet; I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much from them. I will miss the daily interactions with people who have had a profound impact on my professional life, and those who have become my friends.
It is time to move on, focus on my studies, and look for a new path.

I plan to take some time and attend my next residency in Phoenix at the end of the month.  I have registered for two classes next quarter, get my priorities in order, and move on!
