Metanoia is an ancient Greek word meaning to change one’s mind. I heard this word for the first time today. The meaning is beautiful I think, and the idea of the journey of changing. Sometimes we walk a dark road and then, through grace we find our way when the light shines on the path of our mind, heart, or way of life.
I’ve being doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks. I try not to think too logically, but I think with my heart intuitively. I trust my heart over my mind. It hasn’t always been this way. With age comes experience and knowledge. Then comes discernment which brings a level of peace and contentment regardless of what’s going on around me.
“We change our behaviour when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Consequences give us the pain that motivates us to change.”
– Henry Cloud
