Transformation

May 9, 2020 | Dr. Satyavani Gayatri

STANDARD DEFINITION: a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.

PHYSICS: a metamorphosis during the life cycle of an animal; the induced or spontaneous change of one element into another by a nuclear process.

MATHEMATICS•LOGIC: the induced or spontaneous change of one element into another by a nuclear process.

LINGUISTICS: a process by which one figure, expression, or function is converted into another that is equivalent in some important respect but is differently expressed or represented.

BIOLOGY: a process by which an element in the underlying deep structure of a sentence is converted to an element in the surface structure.

Transformation is a through process. It is unknown. It is hard. It is fire. It is uncomfortable. It is Tapas. It is freedom. It puts us face-to-face with the three key questions of life:

Who Am I?
What Is My Dharma?
How Do I Transcend?

It is not short-term and it requires a great deal of effort. In today’s climate it forces such thoughts and musings as:

What if I don’t recover?
What will the world look like?
What is “normal?”
What is the “new normal?”
Will I ever be in community again?

The condition of the world currently has thrust upon us questions and work we have likely been avoiding all out lives regardless of whether or not its part of the plan. It’s easier to not be engaged. It’s easier to not sit with ourselves. It’s easier to eat and drink ourselves to death. It’s easier to shop online. It’s easier to not engage. It’s easier to make excuses.

It’s hard to transform. AND….it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.

What’s the Endgame here?

When we step back and look at all that is happening in the world at once it can be dizzying. We have insufficient and incompetent leadership, corruption at an all-time high, an environment that is transforming before our eyes due to human recklessness and a pandemic that has brought to the forefront a shining reality […]
