The change process is always painful. When it comes to our own deep soul transformation, it can be more than discouraging. I was pleasantly surprised when I read in the sports section that A-Rod, the future Hall of Fame shortstop turned third baseman by the Yankees has been in therapy for many years. He said it has helped him to find himself. What happens if after finding your self, you don't like what you find? That has often been my experience, as I come face to face with my pride, selfishness, and lack of self control.

My deepest hope at times like this, is the reality (I'm counting on it by faith) that Christ is in me forging me into the image of his Son, Jesus of Nazareth. I am on a journey of change, transformation and soul-mestizaje.

More later.
