Thank you for following your eyes upon this Contemplation today. Truely this is one of those topics that many debate and discuss for hours, days, weeks, months, and years, and yet somehow end up agreeing to disagree about the meaning leading up to, through, and at the end of Transformation. How is transformation done, is it spiritual, is it physical, is it all, is it specific, is it generalized, to what degree or extent is it complete or should it be incomplete and for how long? So many questions surrounding transformation and how people go through it, why they go through it, and what impact it has on their lives because of it. I have not done my due diligence to read and parse out all the websites that offer it and professional and non professional services and books that support and train or deliver it to anyone who desires it. I did find an article that shares some steps about it, which I would like to offer for Written Contemplation today.
These steps are:
- Evaluate your overall spiritual state
- Identify spiritual strengths and weaknesses (sometimes called growth opportunities)
- Identify spiritual defects or hinderences and thei impact
- Reflect on spiritual issues in your life
- Develop a spirtual growth plan
Now I will say that I took the creative liberty to alter or paraphrase some of this, and if we, or I were to boil or synthesize this down further we would see that it can be brought to even simpler steps;
- Recognize that change is needed
- Evaluate who you are at this moment
- Identify weaknesses
- Identify strengths
- Reflect on the impacts of the negative events and issues in your life
- Reflect on the changes you want to make and can accept to make
- Define how you want to take action
- Follow that plan
So I aspire to encourage all you readers to agree or disagree with me and comment on your views. If you have s shorter and more concise way to go about this as well, please comment. I understand as well that there are programs of all shapes and sizes and religious or non-religious backgrounds and agreements. However you find them or attend them, I believe they are useful and I wish you all luck and the best intentions to learn what you need to learn from them. I would enjoy comments or conversation about your experiences as always, this site is an encourager of writing and of contemplation, which I hope this topic is in the mainstream of what you came to this site for.
Did I challenge you today? I hope so. Did I encourage you today? I wish I could. Did I engage your intellect to think deeper? It is my nature to do so.
These questions and more continue to flow from my thoughts to this page, however I must stop typing at some point. Please write back, comment, and begin your contemplation in writing or with friends. Thank you for reading today.
