Inspirational: On the Gateway of Transformation and Growth -- Death of the Limited Self and Phoenix of the Higher Self


by Justin Deschamps


In my personal process of awakening, contemplating reality, and philosophizing about the universe, I often receive "downloads" in the form of poems, prayers, and inspirational messages. I usually keep these to myself, because they are usually very personal. But also because, due to their non-specific nature, they can be misinterpreted. However, I feel the time has come for me to begin sharing these things with the world, when I feel appropriate.



The following is a message I received when meditating on the nature of personal transformation and development, as it relates to the concept of transformation. Death is a form of transformation, despite the cultural stimiga it has on our world.

Instead of launching into a dissertation about the underlying arguments and premises behind what is presented below, I'll share it as is, and invite you to comment as desired.

I hope you find it as inspiring as I did, when I received it.


- Justin 

On the Gateway of Transformation and Growth 
I transcend the fear of life by embracing the gateway of death, the eternal transformer. 
In the death of limitation, abundance flows.

In the death of prejudice, compassion is reborn.

In the death of disgust, bliss renews my being.

While I sail on the seas of potential suffering, suffering touches me not, for my mind is guided by the lamplight of truth and the song of universal wisdom.

My heart is warmed by the fire of inspiration that flows through my mind.

I am grateful for the gifts of opportunity, those challenges that give me a chance to let go of who I have been, so I can become who I am meant to be.



The preceding is a Stillness in the Storm original creation. Please share freely.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
