Today’s gospel is about transfiguration. It is a painful process of purification where we become naked again. The ego is hurt and melodramatic. But with deep listening and deep sharing, there is also deep connection to the unconditional love and openness around us. This is when we realize that God talks to our higher self, the real self, of our planetary purpose.
Similar to a caterpillar’s transformation process into a butterfly, we transform as well to our designed potential. For example, the larva dies from its old form and changes its body; it opens up to the world of possibilities with wings ready to take flight. When it breaks out from its shell of limitations, there is a rebirth to become its true nature of beauty and originality.
The more we clearly see the interconnection of all, we have to remember that we are always supported to take our rightful place in this school of life called Earth. Our life is not about ourselves. Our purpose is not about ourselves. The execution of our purpose is about ourselves serving the whole.
And this is how our societies change through the metamorphosis of every individual stepping into its fullness with boundless courage, compassion and grace.
”Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.”
