Tips for self-transformation

Intelligence is when we learn to eliminate our ignorance. Knowledge destroys ignorance. In fact, there’s no doubt that knowledge is transformational, but we need to be careful how we use it.

Is it destroying our foolishness or protecting it?

Take for example, technology. Technology has grown tremendously in the past few years. But we must ask ourselves, has human consciousness grown? We need to focus on this. Weapons of mass destruction have increased and nations have become more organized at warfare. A war today has the potential to destroy humanity forever. How is this progress?

Today, we place a lot of importance on the mind and not enough on the heart. Another example are TV debates. They seem to fall into that category. They begin a debate with a conclusion. And then continue to intensify those conclusions. That is not a healthy way to go about it. They have a lot of impact on us.

Where has consciousness really grown? The growth of consciousness happens when you and I both know how to give. If we want to transform ourselves, then we have to learn how to give ourselves to others. Knowledge will not transform our country, it is wisdom that will do so.

How can we move from knowledge into wisdom? If we don’t do know how to do this, we are in for a tough time. Even when we are gifted with money, power and success, we will be crushed by these gifts if we don’t know how to use them wisely. We see this often in famous celebrities who often end up addicted or breaking down.

Tip 3: Respond, don’t react

Is your action proactive or reactive? Is it a response? There are going to be many tough situations in our personal lives and in society. We should respond and not react. There is corruption: respond. The political system may be under turmoil: respond. If you get tense, your reaction will increase and you will be ineffective. Reactions are often knee-jerk and charged with emotion. A response takes into consideration reason and logic. If you don’t know how to do this, you will be crushed.
