Becoming a greater embodiment of our Essential Self does not involve the accumulation of more knowledge or information. It is not an intellectual process. In the same way, authentic transformation is not about trying to fix ourselves. We’re not looking to add anything, and we’re not looking to fix anything. Instead, we are looking to awaken to the fact that we are already whole, perfect, and complete as God created us by imparting all of its divine sacred qualities and creative capacities into us. As unique and individualized emanations of the Divine Presence there could not possibly be anything wrong with us, nor could there be anything missing within us. So the path of spiritual transformation becomes to recognize this, not as a belief system, but as an inward realization, a deep experiential awareness that becomes more real to us than anything we may have experienced in the world of physical phenomena. This is the purpose of meditation, affirmative prayer, spiritual contemplation, and tuning into the larger vision for our lives. We are beginning to see ourselves the way God sees us. And all that God sees in us is beauty and magnificence, absolute well-being and limitless potential. Nothing that has ever happened can change this, because nothing other than this is Ultimately Real.
