As far as inner transformation is concerned, there is nothing you can do about it. You cannot transform yourself, and you certainly cannot transform your partner or anybody else. All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter. ~ Eckhart TolleI found the quote very interesting and decided to do a Sacred Spirit Journey to ask my spirit guide for further insights and guidance on what Eckhart Tolle says about transformation. As part of my preparations for the Sacred Spirit Journey I ask for help to let go of whatever feelings, thoughts, etc. that I don’t need, and to transmute any negative thoughts or beliefs into something more constructive and positive. My spirit guide comments on that right away. He says:
More than the ‘positive’ versus the ‘negative’; what’s causing problems is especially the holding on and identifying with what’s going on inside you but which isn’t you at all.
The more you can become a ‘hollow bone’ and accept with appreciation and gently let go of whatever comes your way on the inside as well as the outside – the more you can ease into the You who you are destined to be. The you who fully lives and expresses your soul’s gift and purpose.
Instead, what mostly happens is a constant struggle: trying to ‘get’ and trying to ‘get rid of’ or ignore, whether it concerns feelings, thoughts, things etc.
Watch the water flow in a river or stream. Contemplate the old sayings about water.
Imagine yourself as water. Can you do that? Can you ease into any shape and still hold or stay true to the essence of who you are? It won’t be a problem, unless you identify yourself with all that you are not.
Anything that is temporary, you are not. Find the one constant, and that is who or what you are.
When you go beyond needing to identify with something or someone, you won’t have a need for transformation.
Practice accepting the present moment with all that is and all that you are, and then let it go when it ‘wants to go’. You are not losing anything.
The same thing happens with your breath. Let it enter your body with acceptance and appreciation, and then let it go with a blessing, releasing it back to the One Breath.
You’ve got many chances throughout your day to create the space for transformation to happen, transformation simply allowing your true self to emerge. No struggle is needed.
