Transformation is a bit like folding space (in the science fiction faster-than-light travel kind of way). It isn’t about changing something, it isn’t about shifting our views, it isn’t about moving things around. Instead, it’s about opening up and broadening our (accidentally already limited) view to wide new vistas, and then creating a new way of being to live into.
Note that, in that moment, our circumstances don’t change. We’re still the same person and we’re in the same situation and we have the same trials and tribulations and conditions and events and all of that ahead of us.
But, because we have shifted our view and, more importantly, who we are being, not only does our experience of life change – Actually, let’s pause here for a moment, because to be honest that is really important! Our experience of life is in some ways everything, our experience of life is what we’re here for!
Getting back to it, not only does our experience of life change, but so to do our capabilities change.* We approach things differently. Our options expand. Our agency and confidence grow.
While we face the same circumstances, everything feels and even seems different. We step into paths that might never have even occurred to us before. We travel towards those things in life which we all want.
Which in turn boosts our experience of life even more. Joy, love, fulfilment, comfort, security, and peace of mind, all available to bask in.
* Our capacity doesn’t change… it already was pretty darn unlimited, we just had erected barriers in front of it. With those barriers gone we can do the work needed to step into and develop our capabilities.
