Transitioning and Change
A Transformational Conversation about Transitioning and Change…
“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” – Richard Bach
Often, we fear change, the unknown, grasping onto an identity or something as if it is who we are, feeling like it is the end. It may be a relationship or a career, a home or a pet, a life we have lived or maybe just a moment….wanting to hold onto it for eternity, feeling like we would lose the actual meaning of life if we were to no longer have it. These endings may feel like a process of dying, yet there is no such thing for we are not these bodies, nor any circumstance. We are eternal spiritual beings, therefore there is only life, a constant expanding of oneself into a grander version of oneself. There is no end to life, nor to any relationship, they are all eternal! There is no death, only transformations of relativity that nudge us to a greater experience of it all.
The fact is, change requires us to always let go of something, whether it be a limited belief, a stipulation, a way of being or even a body at times. Life is but change, the grand evolution, the transition, the ever birthing and re-birthing of thy self. Life is not stagnant, all there is is change.
So, you may be asking yourself, “Why do we have to go through all of these changes? Why do we have to go through transition?”
There are as many answers to that question as there are human beings, but one must know that there is a grand design to it all…. destination, Oneness and Love! To know this, we first must ‘not know this.’ This is the paradoxal journey. The paths to this destination are vast, more than all the grains of sand on this planet….it is so complex and yet so simple. Potentially, no one can tell you or teach you, it can only be experienced….Hence, the design and ‘why’ we have to go through these changes. As Robert Frost so elegantly tweaked the Chinese Proverb, “The only way out is through.”
So, to love is to know it in all forms, all emotions, all relativity, all suffering, all transformation, all experience. So transitioning and change is just more of that!!! It is the process of disintegration and reintegration, in which the wisdom transpires through the matter into the grand metamorphosis …. All for the purpose of knowing thyself, which is one thing… LOVE!

we are spiritual beings having a human experience. ”
