TRANSFORMATION IS A BEING IN CONVERSATIONS FOR TRANSFORMATION.
YOU'RE ONLY TRANSFORMED AS LONG AS YOU'RE IN CONVERSATIONS FOR TRANSFORMATION.
WHEN YOU'RE NO LONGER IN CONVERSATIONS FOR TRANSFORMATION, THEN YOU'RE NO LONGER TRANSFORMED.
When I first heard you say it my initial thought was "God‑damn! This guy's got it. He's really got it.". Starting from that moment on into the present day and beyond, my subsequent thoughts are tinged with a new, vivid shade of joy, a new buoyancy which is accounted for as follows: if I'm the only one who knows transformation is being in Conversations For Transformation, then who's to say it's not just my own private fantasy? But if I'm clear you know it too, and I know you're not simply humoring me by agreeing with me, then it's a confirmation of who I'm being ie it's a validation of my experience.
You don't need to explain it to me and I don't need to understand it. Both of those are bicycles fish don't need. It's who you're being which is the demonstration of it. Whenever I'm challenged by the awesome expanse of transformation's infinite possibilities, when the voice in my head whines "It's too vast - I can't go there", I realize none of my cleverness, none of my intelligence, none of my knowing how it all works will get me to go there. Even my common sense tells me not to go there. Of course, there's a cost to not taking on the challenge of the awesome expanse of transformation's infinite possibilities: what it costs me is a loss of power, a diminished sense of presence of Self, a disappointing compromised integrity, and the ultimate cost: getting my old life back. When that's what it's like, there's only one thing which empowers me to not stop, which empowers me to move on, which empowers me to keep on forwarding the action, which empowers me to not settle for business as usual and that's you - the demonstration of what's possible with transformation.
If you can be it, especially in those spaces, then clearly it's possible to be it - ergo I can too. You hold up a sign which reads "The horse is going that way". I get it. I'm delighted when I get it. I'm also slightly peeved with myself for not getting it by myself sooner. "A-Ha!" I shout in triumph, shifting my balance to ride in this direction, allowing all the struggle and effort to fall away onto the trail behind me.
