Transformation comes to us when we open our hearts and allow it to enter. Sounds fairly easy doesn’t it? It can be, however, for most of us on our path it is something we routinely throw up road blocks to and stamp our feet in the ground indicating we are comfortable staying right where we are, no matter if it is not serving us any longer. Comfort is nice, yes nice. There is so much more that comes to us in the way of transformation, which might include ‘nice’, but it is far more complex than nice and it is the path of the spiritual warrior. For me, I prefer to grow and change; choosing the warrior’s path and that requires much work. There is the old saying about nothing ventured, nothing gained; in the Bible, Romans 12:2, says “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind”; the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation by Buddha and all religions contain something about transformation. Transformation is a spiritual action that we are called upon by the one source energy of the universe to do in order to bring forth our light into the world. The question is why do we become so stuck on the road? Fear is a big part of it, for if we do not know what is going to occur (ego getting in the way), we hold back. We want a road map so we know exactly where we are going to end up. Life is not going to give you that road map other than the fact we are all born and we are all going die; there are many points in between and how we arrive from birth to death is up to each of us individually.
Do the work, do it each and every day. Call it in. There is no simple way to do the work, but if you ask for the divine’s assistance, it will be there. You must believe in order to receive (I always said that to my son at Christmas time). No one claimed any of this would be easy, but it is the task we are given at birth, to shine our light. Please bring yourself forward today and do some work. Do not limit yourself to a victim’s mentality. Let your voice be heard, for it has a song to share.
“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” ~Maya Angelou
