The Silence in Transformation

Towards the transformation that your Mind can see….

The act or process of transforming somebody or something.

Transformation 01

Transformation 02

One powerful way to evoke compassion, and to transform is to think of others as exactly the same as you.

“All human beings are the same—made of human flesh, bones, and blood. We all want happiness and want to avoid suffering. Further, we have an equal right to be happy. In other words, it is important to realize our sameness as human beings.” Dalai Lama

Transformation 03

Transformation 04

when the View is constant
the flow of Rigpa unfailing
and the merging of the two luminosities continuous and spontaneous
all possible delusion is liberated at its very root
and your entire perception arises, without a break, as Rigpa – Sogyal Rinpoche

Transformation 05

Transformation 06

Do not make the mistake of imagining that the nature of mind is exclusive only to our minds. It is in fact the nature of everything. It can never be said too often that to realize the nature of mind is to realize the nature of all things. – Sogyal Rinpoche

Transformation 07

Transformation 08

Moving through the transformation that the Heart can feel….

Transformation 09: Heart

    • Thanks Lucy, I appreciate the kind thoughts on the piece. I think my favorite would have to Transformation 03, where the light and insight of the mind is at its fullness.

    • I am really enjoying the Silence Series. I am able to focus on the small changes in a piece. It also centers me.
