Transformation vs. Change

When we are feeling stuck we can sometimes mistake our soul’s desire for transformation for our ego’s desire for novelty. All transformation involves change, but not all change includes transformation. The ego is novelty seeking. It craves change for the sake of change. The soul is transformation seeking. It craves evolution and growth for the sake of evolution and growth.

Awakening is Just the Start

Awakening is just the beginning, and the work is never done. Our initial spiritual awakening is when the real work of healing and transformation really begins. Before our awakening our teacher is karma, and we are so lost in maya that our evolution is rather slow. But gradually the lessons of pleasure and pain balance our lower chakras and begin to quicken our hearts.
