Transition: (1) movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc., to another, change.
EX: The transition from adolescence to adulthood.
The transition from being single to being in a partnership.
The transition from being a couple to parenthood/family.
In the years I have been apart of this world there are numerous transitions that have been experienced in my life. Some extremely exhilarating, some simple and ordinary, and some less preferable. Regardless of the form the transitions have presented themselves I am learning to appreciate the maturing that developes from each one.
I believe there is another transition happening presently, one that envolves myself and every other human being. The transition is one of mentality, making a conscious choice to live in such a way that disconnects us from carrying any curse from ancestors/forefathers. Now, please understand, I am NOT disrespecting our heritage. I am however acknowledging that there were ideologies then that are absolutely not relevant to us today.
I believe this transition requires a Power more than myself and this is where my prayer life and faith in GOD is evolving. I am seeing and experiencing, as I am maturing, 🙂 the challenges that transition can bring, in that there is a clear recognition in differences of ideas and beliefs of those I love and respect. In realizing that reality, there is the element of Grace that is being developed. I am learning to use this little gem when these differences present themselves.
The transition our world is having at this time is what I describe as a rebalancing. Our culture, through time and war and invention, has experienced very drastic changes. Some examples include wars that took such a large number of men from the households that the women became responsible, through no liberal choice of their own, for their established household responsibilities and child raising, along with the work load the men were responsible for, wether that be outside the home or farmimg or both. From that experience came the changes of Liberation, most likely to those who were not in the healthiest of spousal relationships to begin with. It would not make much sense that those who have healthy spousal relationships to be encouraged or enamored by the idea of going it alone and carrying all that responsibility themselves, with little or no help. I also believe that if the partnership balance was so OFF balance that GOD could and very possibly would allow the events that occured to bring that course change about.
The rebalancing is where the best aspects of the family dynamic from early culture ideas and the best aspects of our present cultural state support one another. That being said, here we are with a significant Work In Progress!!!
