Transformation

Transformation is most commonly illustrated through the image of a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. It speaks to a deep desire to be different than we currently are: whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. We feel that if we could only find the right process—the right chrysalis—we would undoubtedly emerge as the perfect version of ourselves. But transformation is not about the magical changing of one static form into another: it is a process of intentionally guiding the change that is already occurring day by day, moment by moment, on every atom and being in the universe. Our thoughts, brains, bodies, and spirits are undergoing constant change, and the power of transformation relies on that inherent capacity. Healthy transformation stems from the knowledge that we have choices in every moment in how we change, and how we respond to that change. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
