The word transformation is made of three words – trans means transcend, form means shape, and ation means action. It is the action of transcending in which we change our form. At the deepest level we shape our conscious self according to our sense of identity and self image. We have all been taught to identify with our physical form, and we have learned to see ourselves in negative ways. This is what lies at the root of all personal unhappiness and interpersonal conflict. To see and understand exactly why this is so requires time in meditation and self reflection. But more importantly, the correcting, or transformation of our self identity/image, requires the rediscovery of our true form, our spiritual form, to experience the self as it truly is, as ‘I (truly) Am'!
