Why Do We Tend to Fear Personal Transformation?

“In order to get where you’re going, or where you want to be…in order to reach the heights you desperately want to reach, you actually have to go through the process of changing the person you are now.”

– Roswell (Insight Timer)

And that can feel like a death of sorts…because it is.

But it’s worth it. Because on the other side of that mini-death is more life…more you.

“As long as you’re transforming in line with your highest values and aspirations,” says Roswell, “Then you’re actually becoming more of yourself.  You’re becoming like who you really are, in a pure sense…the you that is more free, more authentic, more stable, more awake.”
