Clarity, self-awareness, being in the now are all great mental states! Once we are in one of them, we are transformed, supercharged with focus and our abilities to achieve is just multiplied 10 times.
I am sure you probably agree with me on this fact and with a little convincing on my side, I might be able to talk you into committing to achieve a lifestyle that is full of these states in your life!, however, I am also sure that you will be a little less committed to our great agreement once you start changing the next full diaper of your newborn or if you had to work 16 hours on a particular day!
It is a fact that we live a very busy life that leaves us so much little time to purely dedicate it to ourselves, we run from here and there day in, day out and once a small window of time shows up, it brings with it a long queue of ready customers to take it! An overdue phone call or visit or anything of that sort taking away this extra time. So our smelly friend, Mr. Diapers isn't specifically the issue here or the long working hours or any other responsibility of ours for that matter.
Transformation is a natural process and is the expected result of living our lives and going through experiences, tests, and challenges! It is who we are and what we evolve to become. I quote "Sooner or later...one has to take sides. If one is to remain human." ― Graham Greene, the Quiet American. Our identities keep transforming and evolving every day till we leave it is an ongoing process.
The concern is the random unguided and unguided transformation of our identities due to the patterns of the lifestyle we live and how being on the run most of the time make us unaware of the transformation happening and our priorities and principles are changing and eventually our identities.
It is a common incident to run into an old friend accidentally after several years of no contact and to realize within few seconds down the conversation you don't know this person anymore! It feels like if someone else is living in his or her body. You see a totally different identity there with nothing left from the old friend! I almost asked him "what did you do to my friend?"
This is the effect of transformation during the years; once we see the total accumulation of it can be huge. It changes people gradually to have nothing left from what they used to be and again this is not a bad thing it is just a powerful force and works way faster than we anticipate.
After running into that friend, I spent the rest of that day feeling as If witnessed his death. He didn't exist anymore to me and the strangest part is that he knew all about it too.
To me, it wasn’t the change that touched me the most, but the fact that my friend didn’t choose this change and if he had to choose then he would have chosen differently actually it was just way to quick for him to realize it, it was as if he slept and then woke up to find himself like that.
