Out of dissatisfaction or frustration with the things and people around, we wish they could change. Almost everyone wants the others to change to suit to their whims and fancies. In work place boss wants his employers to reach targets, while the employee want their boss to be less demanding. Wife wants her husband to listen to her always, while husband would appreciate if his wife would not be nagging. Parents want their children to be obedient and children would love if parents are liberal.
Is there a solution to this problem, if we look deep into this problem the solution is in making a difference in our lower self. There is a subtle difference between change and transformation. Change is something which can come back to original position. Like example the change in weather it is summer now and then it could be rainy or winter. Transformation is an irreversible turn, if it has taken a stand from bad to good it will never revert back to the past position. Hence compared to change transformation has got a permanent label on it. We can say transformation is a permanent change. That transformation has to start with “me.” In fact, the truth is that the major thing that ever needs transformation is in “me.” The moment I truly realize this, transformation happens within me. So to have a permanent change in myself it is important for me to transform within. Transform to what I am deep inside eternally.
A small example can help us understand: A butterfly lays eggs and the eggs hatch to become caterpillars. But the caterpillar is not a butterfly it has no colorful wings as its parents have. It cannot fly and has many tiny legs to crawl. It has no proboscis like butterfly to suck nectar from flowers instead it has mandibles to nibble the leaves of the same plant. Well, it starts wondering why it was not like its parents and started to contemplate and went into isolation by building a cocoon around it. It mentally thought of the structure that it has in its gene and wanted to transform itself accordingly. With one pointed agenda of becoming a butterfly it gets away from the world and is in solitude. For all its austerities one fine day it comes out as a butterfly exactly like its parents. This is transformation.
We are all kind, gentle and generous inside all it needs is only for us to think and go into contemplation and get transformed into what we truly are…… Am I Right?????
