transformation

A Quote by John O'Donohue on belonging and transformation

The hunger to belong is not merely a desire to be attached to something.  It is rather sensing that great transformation and discovery become possible when belonging is sheltered and true.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on self and transformation

For authentic transformation is not a matter of belief but of the death of the believer; not a matter of translating the world but of transforming transforming the world; not a matter of finding solace but of finding infinity on the other side of death.  The self is not made content; the self is made toast.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on transformation and four quadrants

This transformation is already proceeding, and if we want to consciously find these evolutionary currents operating in our own being as well--if we want to consciously join Spirit-in-action--then the four quardrants can help us orient ourselves more effectively, can help us become more conscious of the evolutionary currents already flowing around us and through us and in us.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on spirituality, transformation, translation, and spiritual practice

If the majority of the "spiritual market" is drawn to prerational magic and myth, how do you reach the small group who are involved in genuine, laborious, demanding, transrational spiritual practice? This is very difficult, because both markets are referred to as "spiritual," but these two camps really don't get along very well--one is mostly translative, the other is mostly transformative, and they generally disapprove of each other--so how do you put them into one magazine without alienating them both?

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on learning, growth, and transformation

Through learning we grow, becoming more than we were before, and in that sense learning is unselfish, because it results in the transformation of what we were before, a setting aside of the old self in favor of a more complex one.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on soul, evolution, and transformation

...if we expended all our energies solely on taking care of our own needs we would stop growing. In that respect what we call "soul" can be viewed as the surplus energy that can be invested into change and transformation. As such, it is the cutting edge of evolution.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on meetings and transformation

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances; if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
