Thursday, March 5th, 2015 Focus: I ask questions and seek answers with an open heart.


Adulthood can be a time of transformation. It can be a time of spiritual unfolding. Dramatic as it may sound, adulthood can be metamorphosis.

Based on my research of the literature on adult development, I am convinced that there is an adult metamorphosis. However, unlike the caterpillar’s metamorphosis, our transformation is invisible. It happens in a part of us that does not show up on X rays, cannot be measured by medical equipment, and cannot be tested in a laboratory. It happens inside us. And it happens over a lifetime.

Our metamorphosis is, in fact, a quest. The signposts on our quest are questions (from quaerere: to search). They may not automatically point us in the “right” direction. But if we ask questions and seek answers with an open heart, they will move us forward on our journey.
