|"Transformation shows up in my mouth." ...|
|"Transformation is being in a conversation for transformation. When you are no longer in a conversation for transformation, you are no longer transformed." ...|
Life has no meaning (in spite of our fervently, hopelessly, futilely pursuing the meaning of life). There's no meaning to any of this. None. It's all empty and meaningless, and it's empty and meaningless that it's empty and meaningless. When we get that, rather than being stopped, disempowered, or angst-ridden because it's empty and meaningless, it's an opportunity for creating, for choosing, and (possibly for the first time) for freely being who we really are. When we get that, and we live our lives coming from this space, that's the process of transformation.
What I notice about living my life as a creation, is I'm either living my life as a creation ... or I'm not. The gold pad switch is either on ... or it's off. There's no in-between. No gray. The good news about those times when I realize I'm not living my life as a creation, is they're reminders to start living my life as a creation again. Living my life as a creation (which is what the process of transformation is) is ongoing, neverending. Yet there's no accumulation. It doesn't build up. If I live the process of transformation for ten years and then stop creating it, there's no carry over. When I stop living my life as a creation (even under the guise of taking a break, even under the guise of resting on my laurels), I can no longer live my life transformed. When I stop living my life as a creation, transformation goes away.
It's deadly. Transformation ceases to exist when I no longer create it. There's no permanence to living the process of transformation. It isn't like accumulating a fine wine collection. If I accumulate a fine wine collection and then I decide to stop accumulating fine wine, I still have the collection I accumulated. The process of transformation doesn't work that way. When I stop living my life as a creation, I'm no longer living my life transformed, transformation goes away, and there's nothing accumulated remaining.
It's truly deadly. In the world of transformation, there's no resting on laurels.
By the way, you didn't need me to tell you that. You already knew it.
Yet it's worth repeating. The deadly part about what happens when we stop sourcing our own transformation, or rest on our transformation laurels, is what we're most likely to go unclear about. It's pernicious.
