''The Reconstruction Crisis''

To build a better life, my friend
here's something that I've found
things might just get a little worse
before they turn around.

The reason is you've spent your life
constructing woes and troubles
In breaking down those structures
you'll find chaos often doubles

The fights increase, the tension mounts
close friends you may estrange
The world you've made is falling
so some things are bound to change

The thoughts you keep have shifted
and so too whom you attract
Let all the players clear the stage
make way for life's new act

You'll face this choice in life
each time you go against the grain:
Let go and risk it all,
or seek my comfort in the pain?

If better's what you seek
then face life's turmoil without fear
The reconstruction crisis
is a signal change is near!

In my workshops (shameless plug: I have one tomorrow in NY), the topic of 'change' invariably arises. I've found that once a person decides to set upon a new course to better his or her life, a series of events-what I call the Reconstruction Crisis-- is always precipitated by the nature of these new thoughts.

We live in a receptive universe that responds to our thoughts. When you say you want a better life, and visualize and set goals accordingly, things naturally start to happen to bring you the life you desire. (Really! It's true!) What happens, however, is that most people miss the clues, and interpret the ensuing chaos, tension, stress, turmoil, strained relationships, disagreements, disappointments, betrayals and lack of support from those we love as an indication that we've made a bad decision. Or worse, we fail to see the connection our new way of thinking is having on our relationships and environment, and get distracted putting out these seemingly unexpected, and unrelated fires in our lives.

Quite the contrary, the Reconstruction Crisis is in effect, and it's the very people, and circumstances that have no place in our envisioned future that will start to feel the effects of the old world being dismantled and being prepared for reconstruction.

If you understand what's going on, you'll welcome the potential for change and betterment that crisis always brings. Could the chaos really be change knocking at your door? What existing relationships and situations need to be let go, in order to make way for the new?
