In light of the recent news stories, I thought it would be helpful to share some thoughts on what is transformation and how do we go about creating the positive changes we want to see in the world.
Transformation is defined as:
– a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance;
– a remodeling, reshaping, redoing, reconstruction, rebuilding, reorganization, rearrangement, renewal, remaking;
– a metamorphosis during the life cycle of an animal
– the induced or spontaneous change of one element into another by a nuclear process
Synonyms: change, alteration, mutation, conversion, metamorphosis, transfiguration, transmutation, revolution, overhaul
Today, right now, we are all engaged in the transformation process of society and the planet. Like stones dropped in the water, we are catalysts for change in the world around us, creating a ripple effect every moment of every day.
The question is, “What kind of change are we creating?” “What are we leading towards?”
We know now that our thoughts, words and actions have power. They can be tools of love, unity, peace, or as weapons of destruction. Have you noticed that the media is trying to focus us on the negative? We watch the news and we are outraged. Wars, terrorism, destruction, greed, dishonesty… For the most part, they are spreading (rippling out) more negative energy.
Transformation is a shift from one thing into another. What if we were to look at the situations we face and find ways to turn it for good? Where there is hate, instill love? Where there is judgement, replace it with grace? Where there is fear, be lovingly bold and courageous?
Negativity does not cast out negativity just like two wrongs don’t make a right. Only light casts out darkness!
Let’s all decide to be part of the solution, and not the problem. The next time you feel yourself being angered by a situation, ask yourself “How can I cast LIGHT into this situation? How can I bring HEALING into this relationship? How can I make a POSITIVE difference here?”
That’s what the Leaders Of Transformation podcast is all about. While there are a lot of horrible things happening globally right now, there are also people who are stepping up and doing amazing things to transform the world. Let’s celebrate them…and join them in casting light into the darkened spaces.
