The "before" was the norm ie it was de rigueur prior to that fateful day somewhere out of time when transformation first showed up in my life, grabbed me by the heart with both hands, and said, "You'll never let me go, you'll talk about me forever" which I've subsequently rephrased as "you'll speak me forever" (that's a conversation for another occasion). The "before" I'm referring to was when I managed my life knowing that what there was to do was handle the things which got in my way of living my real life. I knew once the things that got in my way of living my real life were handled and out of the way, my real life could begin.
The "after" I'm referring to is subsequent to realizing that the things I handled in order to get them out of the way so my real life could begin, are my real life.
SEPARATING THE TWO
The fine line separating the two is the contextualization (or even the re-contextualization - I love that word) which comes with the onset of a transformed experience of who we really are ie of who I really am. A transformed experience of who we really are ie of who I really am, is: we are the context in which the circumstances of our lives occur. That said, circumstances being what they are, who we really are is the context for everything. Really. Our lives are the context for both the before and the after. With that differentiated, the before in particular is an illusion, the veil of which is pierced and laid bare by the onset of transformation, then lived recontextualized as the after - which in reality is all there is, all there ever was, and all there ever will be.
