Change never stops if we're conscious beings. We can potentially shut ourselves down. Usually this is done by keeping unresolved trauma unresolved, engaging in unhealthy life styles, and not wanting to face our emotions and what they have to tell us; otherwise, the chances that we'll keep growing and changing, letting go and moving on, are strong.

One commentator noted, "David Bohm is considered to be one of the most accomplished physicists of the 20th century, noted primarily for his advancements in quantum mechanics. Yet few people knew that he eventually became fed up with orthodox theories of physics, turning instead to Eastern philosophies and spending time with wisdom sages like Jiddu Krishnamurti to look for better answers."

Bohm wrote, “I would say that in my scientific and philosophical work, my main concern has been with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which is never static or complete, but which is in an unending process of movement and unfoldment" (Wholeness and the Implicate Order).

To let go and move on is, of challenging. Without ongoing movement and change, we run the risk of becoming unhappy if not depressed. So often individuals coming in for depth therapy express a need for change. "I need to get going in my life," one person says. Another states, "I'm feeling stuck and need help." Inevitably they suffer from anxiety and depression.

We simply can't keep the status quo and grow at the same time. Life is an unending movement and constant unfoldment of potential and possibilities. We heal as we learn what this means for us in our particular life situation and then yield to the process.
