What is true transformation? What is change? How do we change? Is change possible and if it is possible what are key ingredients to change? Transformation is an alchemical process, that requires being with ourselves, our experience and understanding our experience through being with it in an immediate way. This means being in touch with, feeling what is going on for us and discriminating our thoughts, feelings and sensations. When people approach change, they often hope to get an “improved better version” of themselves or to fix or solve their problems or get rid of uncomfortable emotions. There is nothing wrong with this idea, yet the true transformative power cannot be revealed until we are open and willing to face our experience in a direct immediate way without needing to make it different. It is the best way to honour ourselves to not reject, push away or rationalize away what is happening for us.
Transformation requires dedication to do the inner work not because we want to get rid of something that is painful, but because there is a deeper interest or curiousity in our inner nature and who we are beyond our thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Transformation can show up when we allow our experience, when we let things arise rather then having to make them happen, and when we can let ourselves be honest with what is truly happening for us.
Where does transformation take you? It takes you closer to yourself, every time you pay attention to yourself and you are willing to say yes to your experience…
Not only that, it may be that the goal orientation that most of us have, will shift towards a greater compassion and curiousity to what is arising and appreciating it, regardless of whether it is painful or joyous, instead of wanting to be in a “better place” or somewhere else.
