“Transformation is not change, but finding the essence of who we are.”
I love this definition of transformation. I recently had to write an article about water for the very chic, Coco Eco Magazine. It struck me that water never loses the essence of what it is. Water isn’t just what we drink or swim in; Water is rain, it’s snow, it’s condensation and fog. Water is an ocean, a river, a waterfall. No matter what form it takes, hot or cold, calm or violent, liquid or solid, evaporating up or raining down, water is water: H2O, transforming from one incarnation of itself into another without effort or doubt.
How does this pertain to our own transformation? Consider this.
It’s not the changes in life that define us. It’s our responses to those changes and our ability to honor ourselves through the process
If water had a mind, a consciousness, and tried to remain an ice cube in the heat of summer, it wouldn’t succeed. Then it would feel like a failure, rather than the life giving water it truly is. But if, lying there a puddle, it understood that it’s failure to remain an ice cube wasn’t a failure at all but being true to it’s essence, it could begin again as the life giving water it truly is.
