“There’s a difference between change and transformation. Change happens when something old dies and something new begins. Transformation happens when we personally change in the process of outer change. Did you know that planned change is even more troublesome to the ego than unplanned change? Just watch how we love to hate all authorities who legislate for us. The ego wants to find a way to avoid changing if at all possible, but most especially if another ego is commanding it.
God usually has to demand change of us. In fact, we call some unavoidable changes “acts of God,” and those often elicit actual transformation more than anything else.”
From On the Threshold of Transformation: Daily Meditations for Men
yes I can see how these are different, that change does not require transformation and that it is transformation we really desire. change is more surface, transformation is at the core. yes.
The transformed speaks only to relinquishers.
