” And he transfigured before them, his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light”.
*** Mt 17:2***
Change happens all around us as we walk our paths through this journey of life. As Jesus took a couple Disciples up the mountain to the summit, what changed them was the Lord God out of know where, came to them and spoke deeply, that was more of a Transformation or an out of body experience, that truly changed who they once were. Only a few of us experience this kind of Transformation, the rest of us only hear of it and then speculate what it is like, when we speculate we then add lib, meaning we add things that never really happened, just to personalize the experience even though we never been through it. The add libbing is who we all have become within this Society, as we all want to personalize or place our own stamp on this journey, we become jealous of the ones that actually do have their stamp on this journey, which causes the rest of us to become someone we truly are not, instead of working hard to create something that just might change us deeply and for the better,
” This journey of life isn’t about the quantity we accumulate, but everything about the quality for which we live”
Those of us that have taken the trek up a mountain……. any mountain and have experienced the adrenaline rush and the feeling of reaching the summit, would be the closest thing to an out of body experience of true Transformation. The mountain that gave me my biggest rush of emotion and adrenaline was, mount Albert in Leadville, Colorado. This mountain stands at 14,500 feet above sea level and is the highest I have ever been so far. But the rush I got was know where near the rush you get from a total Transformation, or an out of body experience that totally changes who you once were. Now as you trek up any mountain for which you choose, there are many feelings you go through along the trail, from the exhaustion of hard work, to the feelings of awe…… that over whelms your body as you see all the different scene’s as you trek higher and higher into the sky it seems, you see first hand at all the landscape that God has created for us and yes this landscape also changes as we change throughout this journey, with each step higher to the summit, you see the tree’s getting smaller making you look taller, but what you do not realize is, the tree’s are giving way to a feeling like no other once you reach the summit of the mountain. This journey through life has many ways for us to get Wowed!!! along the way, but no more Wowed!!! then the feeling you have seeing all the beauty around you, no matter of what mountain you reach the summit of, now this Wow factor may not be like the the true Transformation of truly changing who you once were, but for us who may never experience that, this is as close as it gets.
Like we walk a path through this journey of life, Jesus also…… when he came to us walked a journey through this same life, he showed us the way to the true path of righteousness and has taught us many things along the way, but one no more than actually feeling the love we all have within our hearts and souls, then sharing that love with all that is around us. This journey will have us face many changes along the way, but only a few chosen ones will actually go through the changes of Transformation, Jesus hand picks these Individuals as he truly knows just who these chosen ones are, which they are destined to achieve special things along their journey and then as they feel unselfish, will share with all that is around them, so we all can truly change for the better and walk our paths in peace, throughout this journey of life. Sometimes this Transformation takes place at birth and becomes our destiny, sometimes this The Transformation comes at times of tragedy, crisis, or maybe from a major illness we miraculously over come, either way this is our chance to make right all our wrongs, so we can be happy as we make others around us happy, throughout this journey of life.
” True transformation changes who you once were, as your thoughts and your actions change to become better than you once were”
” Trekking up a mountain and experiencing that Wow!!! factor of reaching the summit, is an experience we all need to experience to see all the true beauty all around us”
” God created this landscape for us all to enjoy, not for us all to abuse or take advantage of”
