Watching my children’s caterpillars transform into beautiful butterflies reminded me of a persons ability to transform. A yoga and meditation practice can transform one’s body, mind and spirit. I see how my body has transformed through my yoga practice, becoming stronger and more flexible. My mind is going through transformation as I find more stillness throughout my day, times to notice my breath or the sounds of nature.
Spring is a time of growth and transformation. As you look around, you see the new flowers and leaves on the trees as well as the new baby animals scurrying about. All the changes in nature may inspire you to make changes in your life. Maybe a new hairstyle, trying new recipes or starting a new yoga/meditation practice.
According to the dictionary to transform is to make a change, usually for the better.
I believe, like the butterfly, as we transform, we are able to spread our wings and fly.
“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.” Marianne Williamson
