Another Mad Season

November 25, 2009

I’ve been learning new things about transformation and change. In order to do that you kind of have to be in the midst of it.

First of all, I think there’s a difference between the two. Change is more practical. I lost weight. That was change. Transformation is deeper. It’s the choices you make and how you respond to life. Sometimes you need transformation to precipitate change; sometimes not – depending on the scale of change and who you are going into it.

Secondly, a necessary part of transformation is stillness. Like a butterfly bound and restricted in this cocoon. Subdued into a motionless, breathless place of waiting. My mind bucks against this harness. Straining and pushing in all directions. Met not just with resistance but immobility; which is rather infuriating. Until I accept it; choose stillness. and patience. allow the harness to give direction and focus to this unsettled energy. So that it can become transformation; a vibrant sort of stillness that changes everything.
