do you mean by 'transformational change'?
In answering this myself I would say: A change that makes one start a completely
different lifestyle. One where the person is so certain that what he/she
is doing on the deepest level is right and for good that there is no room
for fear, or wrong actions and decisions. All actions are completely in
tune with the rest of the universe.
This is my understanding,
I am interested in hearing yours.
What you are saying describes a possible result of a transformational change
but not what it is by itself. Indeed, a 'transformational change' will
have significant results, which will turn out and show in one's lifestyle,
There might be no
fear anymore, as fear is a reaction coming out from one's unconscious background
and this might be cleared up and also is the result of a transformational
Now how does this
happens? If ice melts and becomes water, then this is a transformational
change. If waste goes into the compost and what comes out is good earth,
or if a seed grows and becomes a plant, or a caterpillar becomes a butterfly,
then this we might understand as a transformational change.
The problems with
humans is that they can't really 'understand' what it is, unless they have
passed this transformational change themselves, - as it includes one's
whole being... 'Understanding' as long as it happens in the mind, just
can be a concept and then this even might hinder such a change, because
the individual does not want such a change and will do everything to avoid
it. Concepts do a good job in this and there is no end in this kind of
understanding. So whatever I might explain it will be added to one's already
stored concepts and this will not help to further any 'transformational
change'. So that means that I have to refuse to talk about it as whatever
I might express it will be used to add to your concepts.
So only thing I can
do is to point out why it is so difficult that there happens a 'transformational
change'. This should be a new subject, but at least I will start here:
It has to do with
what might be called 'Personality', that what we believe we are. This is
not specifically 'human' because also animals have it, but humans are totally
identified with it and that's what makes it so extremely difficult to go
beyond it. The system of 'personality', like all systems, wants to keep
itself together, for sure not wanting to lose itself, instead of this the
personality is trying to get more and more, whatever this might be: Property
on all levels, security on all levels, power on all levels, etc. If there
is property, then there is power. Property not only on the material level,
although the tendency in our society puts the most importance on this,
but after this comes the intellectual property. If one is rich, then one
has the possibility to manipulate others and they will serve to get even
richer. The same with intellectual properties: one can manipulate others
and make them to followers or make that they do what one wants. There is
no end and one can never get enough. Do you think those people want a 'transformational
So then who might
want it? Probably nobody. Those who are professionals for 'transformational
change' are using their knowledge to manipulate the individuals and the
masses for their own purpose. For example: The professionals in spiritual
matters like the churches and religious organizations. What are they doing?
They offer concepts and rituals. This is enough to keep people as followers
and keep them quiet.
(Churches are still
the richest companies in the world). Next: Professionals for psychological
changes: They have their techniques to treat people, charge a lot of money
and if they can't help then they describe medication: Prozac, etc. Do you
think they are interested in an 'transformational change'? Hahaha. Politicians:
For sure they are not interested in any 'transformational change', this
is so obvious that I don't need to say more about it. Medical doctors:
There might be a few interested, but what happens is that they are mainly
interested in treating symptoms by describing medication.
Now are there individuals
among those professionals they might be interested in a 'transformational
change' for themselves? Probably not, because they use their professional
knowledge as part of their personality to be confirmed in their existence
and if they can combine for example the knowledge from psychology with
spiritual concepts then they are absolutely unbeatable and any 'transformational
change' is kept out for ever. Why? Because whatever might happen and whatever
challenge shows up, it will be successfully rejected and put in its place
where it belongs. One's superiority will stay untouched. Change might happen
always, because adaptation is necessary and wanted for one's personality,
but for sure no 'transformational change'.
Yes, I know that 'I' don't want to give up and 'I' don't want to know about
the possibility that 'I am' still hanging on with an intellectual concept
or other kind of trick - fooling myself.
So then my other question
is what is the yard-stick that we can use to measure ourselves - in an
independent way without needing an authority to tell us - if there might
be something currently needing transformation?
Dropping one concept in exchange for another one is not a 'transformational
change'. But if you become aware that you are identified with your concepts
and getting your feeling of existence out of it, then this might be the
Of course we are fooling
ourselves and we are clinging using all kind of tricks. All and every thing
turns around the 'I'.
If you can measure
yourself? A good question. You can't, there isn't such a 'stick'. Do what
feels right at the moment, knowing that this is not a measure, but the
only way to do it, because your feeling of what is right is still too much
influenced by yourself: your needs, your wishes, your dreams, your self
image, your concepts, your unconscious background. But if you sensitively
are aware then you will observe yourself and discover the tricks you are
using, again being aware that with this you are going into another game,
etc. Your own reactions to what shows up in daily life from your surrounding
and from people are the best measure, if you are aware of this and observe
and reflect about it, that's all. So better relax and trust that finally
it will come to an end, what means you will not react anymore because your
background has been cleared up, more you can't do. And then a 'transformational
change' might happen.
It seems to me that it is a good thing for any individual to have some
kind of change, especially to bring one more in touch with ones spiritual
"Some kind of change?" Is there a real change? Or is there just a change
in concepts? Does it make any difference if somebody is killed because
of materialistic reasons or killed because of religious reasons? For the
killed person for sure it will not make any difference, although the religious
motivation might give more strength to the killer...
What is the 'spiritual
side' of a person? This seems to be part of an image and so has little
or nothing to do with 'spirituality'.
let me call it 'self growth'. Isn't this a spiritual learning process?
me give another example:
I am observing a 'very
spiritual person', that's how she calls herself, and she is in a strong
'spiritual transformational process'. At least that's what she believes...
Probably this is not real, but this person is totally involved in it and
obviously believes that she is nearly enlightened. But her daily life behavior
showing up in her reactions are still totally unconscious and to such an
extreme, that no communication is possible. So it is obvious that she is
pretending, but she's not at all conscious about it. One can see it how
she still is doing this old game of provoking reactions in another person
and then using the situation to react even stronger and of course finding
a reason for this and giving the fault to the other. Trying to draw the
other into arguing: to win the game. If this doesn't work, because one
doesn't join this game, then getting into a desperate situation with the
need to pull the emergency brake. You see, it is much more complicate and
the 'personality' owns a huge arsenal of tricky ways to defend itself.
There seems to be no limitation, but there is: There happens an inner blockage
where no trick will help to find one's 'self confirmation'. This might
be called 'guardian of the threshold' and keeps the door close for every
body who is not ready. There is no trick possible and always turns the
pretending person back to oneself. So the last trick might be to end in
total 'craziness' to save oneself. Pretty absurd and sad, but it works...
Knowing that whatever one does, that this is a 'turning around oneself'
isn't there a way, without forcing something, that one can do to trick
oneself not doing any trick again?
Yes there is: As we are getting into stress because we must constantly
defend our precious personality with all its properties: Ones self image,
beliefs, opinions, knowledge, concepts, etc. and these properties are constantly
influenced if not attacked, because the daily reality doesn't fit completely,
so then stress is caused and accumulated. Now this accumulated stress is
used by ones personality to keep going ones games. So the most effective
way to end ones games, is to take out this kind of stored energy. This
can be done by a simple exercise. I call it 'StressReleaseExercise' and
I have given advice how to do it at the page: http://falconblanco.com/release
and I will talk about it in my next audio. - - - Thank you.
