"Everything Changes But Change"

Heraclitus was a Greek philosopher who lived in the 6th Century BC. He felt that everything changed constantly and that all things must pass,unless there is change, which happened constantly. He thus coined the term 'everything changes but change'. The analogy used was that of a candle. He thought that the world was like the flame of a candle. It looks the same but is actually ever changing in terms of its substance.
I have talked about the importance of my needed changes in previous posts. This was extremely necessary to continue with a positive life related to my attitude toward bipolar disorder. It is from these changes that I was able to gain the insight needed for knowledge directed toward a positive visualization, to continue on a stable path forward in my life..

  1. Heraclitus is one of my favorites! The only constant is change so it's best to adapt for sure! And in that adaptation finding a strange kind of acceptance...I couldn't agree more, great post!
