Transformative Learning

I think I understood this today. It is when a switch inside us flips itself from despair and anguish to hope, sorrow to joy, loneliness to I am not alone. From I can’t to I can. From nothing I do can make a difference to I am the difference. From doing good is an option to doing great is a necessity.

Transformation creeps up behind us. It is when we understand our sacred humility, that the other stops being frightening and is embraced as our friend.

When the old structure is no longer perceived as small. When the old structure is no longer perceived as old. When the new is no longer perceived as new. When all is seen as is. As it always has been. When our perceptions are seen, then we understand that transformation has always been and will always be.

When change is understood as continuation. When choices are understood to be our bridges, to each other. And to our own inner place of courage. When identity is no longer fragmented nor integrated, but simply no longer as relevant to our perception of being.

-Peng-Ean Khoo, after participating in the Inaugural EdCamp 2016
