This week’s photo challenge is Transformation. Now, how could I let that one go by? It is one of my favorite words. This offering will come in two parts.
Each new path started, each step across a bridge, each knitted row completed, then on to another piece entirely;
The turning of a page to our next chapter, or beginning another book altogether; the next rung on the ladder – each a metamorphosis.
each movement from one state to another;
Each glimpse into who we truly are. All are transformations of sorts. Small transitions to momentous and memorable shifts. Endings and beginnings.
Nothing stays the same.
Each time we walk into kindness with ourselves and others, we grow and transform.
Each stage of growth, each developmental task realized, learned and moved through; these are our moments.
We need to appreciate each step along the way, I think. Love each small transition, each transcendental moment, as well as the momentous and memorable transformations.
Each Saturn return every 29 years, as well as each journey of the moon around the earth.
How do we transform to create, accept and expand more loving in this world?
Our essential nature is Love. That is our Authentic Self. How do we transcend our ego’s comfort zone?
Each time we transform our self and remember our Highter Self in some way, the collective takes another step.
Each mirror noticed, we ascend to new heights as a Whole.
Thank you, ego.
Our Authentic Self does not live in duality. That is the ego’s realm. Ego holds misidentification of lack, unworthiness and fear.
As we awaken into who we truly are, our egos face challenges. The ego may not be aware of the Authentic Self, so it feels threatened as we move toward the Light. Its job is to keep us safe. It has our best interest at heart. It doesn’t understand “capital H” Heart. Ego doesn’t understand that being stuck in old patterns holds us back from joy and fulfillment. We need to expand and grow. Ego wants to keep us contracted. It holds on to these ineffective ways of being for dear life. We must love it though these transitions and transformations. We need ego to complete our healing process.
A big transformation is moving from ego identification to Soul identification.
Each time we transform our “little s” self into our Authentic Self, again – the collective expands as well.
Ego will die many deaths as we grow. We are gentle with ego, as it loses hold of control. Authentic Self now runs the show. Past patterns and coping mechanisms will fall away, as we no longer need them. The trance of this physical manifestation transmutes to one of clear sight and Love. Our patterns are habits we must break in order to grow.
