Yesterday I read these words: “Be not afraid of growing slowly. Be afraid only of standing still.” This got me thinking about what I call the Transformation Point and the Fork in the Road. A few years back I wrote a little article about these two concepts, because their importance once understood, allowed me to be more present during key moments in my life. Today I re-edited it for you.
Throughout my life I was stretched to the limit by certain circumstances and events. I am very grateful for all these moments, because each one held within a Transformation Point. A Transformation Point refers to what I chose in order to end my struggle to steady a rocking boat:
- Repeat old behaviors and patterns and remain where I was, or
- Abandon that sinking ship of limitation and transform my life
The Transformation Point, suspended in time and space, requires a leap of faith. Sometimes, out of fear, we remain at the fork for a long time, unable to move, but eventually life will force us to decide one way or another.
How do you know that you are making the decision that will lead to your transformation and growth? It is very simple. How you feel about it gives you the answer:
- If you feel a sense of dread, exhaustion and heaviness, this is an indication that you are choosing the same thoughts and behaviors again. It feels safer to do and think what you have always done and thought, but by doing so you bypass the Transformation Point and remain where you were before the Fork in the Road appeared on your life’s path.
- If you feel a sense of anticipation, excitement and ease, you are choosing to evolve, to transform, to move forward. Going through the Transformation Point requires determination and patience but all you need to do is take that first step and then big leaps become possible. All the pieces start fitting together and life gets easier and a lot more fun.
A FORK IN THE ROAD is a beautiful and powerful reminder that you can always choose what your next experiences will be. May you always choose to evolve and move towards a higher vibration of health and fulfillment, with joyous experiences and wide open hearts!
