We can either do nothing at all or do absolutely everything, however both options seem almost improbable. Most likely, we drift between emerging in and out of something. On rare occasions, we get to go “beyond”. And when it happens, it is quite enchanting, extremely scary, and absolutely worth it. Though only if we are ready to fully accept the responsibility that comes with it.
The journey requires a daily ritual of “spring cleaning”to successively remove all that clutter and debris that get in the way of our growth. It calls for a “connoisseur eye”not to get rid of the “vintage” pieces of us worth keeping as they hold timeless value.
A lasting transformation is only possible from deep within; repetitively ripping and stripping the layers of absurd and borrowed assumptions, limiting beliefs and debilitating fears.
Transformation is a way of being and living. Despite the circumstances, despite the opinions of others, despite our own inner-critic voice. The severity of this commitment is huge. Responsibility is tremendous. Protecting own integrity means accountability to self. Yet many mistakenly take the truth for what people actually want to hear and believe. They betray themselves and those who entrusted them. Sometimes, the door to transformation is being presented to us. Perhaps because life in some way was prepping us for it and when it happens we have no choice but to grab the bull by the horns and drop the resistance. It can be a gift or a curse. Some other times, we choose to work towards it. Diving into wishful thinking about changing own and/or other’ lives. While drifting in the illusion of pain-free transition, we must ask ourselves this significant question – what is that we are willing to stand for? That answer will revolutionize our outlook entirely. It may just stop us right at that moment because fantasizing about a transformed way of being does not make that desire a reality. On the other hand, hard choices, inconvenient truths, disappointment of the masses -those do. They carve the path to uncompromisingly un-becoming and un-associating from the old self. Only then, the authentic act of creation can happen. Only then, the shift is possible. And it is quite enchanting, extremely scary, and absolutely worth it. Though only if we are ready to fully accept the responsibility to connect utterly and wholly, truthfully and passionately, wholeheartedly and authentically to the unobstructed truths about ourselves and the vision we are here to follow.
