Especially now, the relevance of transformation is it gives a platform from which to distinguish the source of your transformation from the events in your life - no matter what those events are - and thereby to provide a stand for what becomes possible out of the languaging we are.

This is today's iteration of an ancient, ancient conversation. The Vedic pundits of India of five thousand years ago noted when the naming word for any object was uttered in the Sanskrit language by a saint, that object would manifest and materialize out of nothing.

Others have said "In the Beginning was the Word ...".

In other words, this is where it all starts: with what we say.

Stephen Hawking, arguably the most influential scientific thinker since Professor Albert Einstein, said "It doesn't always have to be like this ... all we need to do is make sure we keep talking.".
