Transformation of self is not about adding things to your life. It is the removal of things in your life causing you stress, suffering and all that is weighing you down. It is the return of your psychological being to the day you were born, clean and pristine; then starting out by yourself without a mother or father. As your own mother and your own father, you would be the source of everything in your new consciousness rather than it being forced on you as the old consciousness was. Transformation is the birth of a new consciousness, one that is not polluted with the present consciousness. Transformation means to begin from that blank space of creation, but this time you are being 100 percent responsible for your creation. This time no one is telling you what to do or who to be. Well, they are still there telling you these things, but you are now able to see the truth and the lies and not be swayed by the old consciousness. The new consciousness can see all the old, but the old consciousness cannot see the new consciousness.
I say the old consciousness must die in order for the new consciousness to be born. This does not mean a death of the physical being; it is a psychological death or clearing of the brain which will bring us back to where we were at birth. I call it born new rather than a re-birth. Re-birth assumes that the old consciousness is still active. Born new means never having been before. You will still have all your memory. You have been educated. You know how to read and write and do mathematics, all the things needed that have brought forth such marvellous inventions. You will keep the necessary knowledge to function in the world while dropping all the things you do not need. Your mind will be empty until you need to use the knowledge you learned. Your actions will come from intelligence, and intelligence will be using the tools of knowledge and memory rather than knowledge and memories using you to keep the old program running.
Since the core of the old consciousness is embedded in violence, and violence is now embedded in today’s world, the core will be the last to die. That causes people to have awakening experiences and then shift right back into the old consciousness. This happens because their core is still alive. That is why death, a psychological death, is necessary. It is this death that kills the core in the brain. Self-transformation allows you to create a new life from intelligence void of our present manner of existing. This is an evolution of humankind that will save us from the path of destruction we are now on. As you and others begin to transform your lives, transformation will reach a critical mass, and we as a species will manifest a new consciousness. This is the natural evolution of the human species. It is the heaven, the nirvana, the ecstasy, or whatever you care to call it that transformation of consciousness will deliver to the world, and you are the source of it, not a god, not a supreme power or any kind of belief.
