In my personal process of awakening, contemplating reality, and philosophizing about the universe, I often receive “downloads” in the form of poems, prayers, and inspirational messages. I usually keep these to myself, because they are usually very personal. But also because, due to their non-specific nature, they can be misinterpreted. However, I feel the time has come for me to begin sharing these things with the world, when I feel appropriate.

The following is a message I received when meditating on the nature of personal transformation and development, as it relates to the concept of transformation. Death is a form of transformation, despite the cultural stimiga it has on our world.

Instead of launching into a dissertation about the underlying arguments and premises behind what is presented below, I’ll share it as is, and invite you to comment as desired.

I hope you find it as inspiring as I did, when I received it.

On the Gateway of Transformation and Growth 

I transcend the fear of life by embracing the gateway of death, the eternal transformer.

In the death of limitation, abundance flows.

In the death of prejudice, compassion is reborn.

In the death of disgust, bliss renews my being.

While I sail on the seas of potential suffering, suffering touches me not, for my mind is guided by the lamplight of truth and the song of universal wisdom.

My heart is warmed by the fire of inspiration that flows through my mind.

I am grateful for the gifts of opportunity, those challenges that give me a chance to let go of who I have been, so I can become who I am meant to be.
