Adept: Transforming Base Metal into Gold
Updated: Oct 19, 2018
In Latin, "adeptus" means an alchemist who has attained the knowledge of how to transform base metals into gold. What do you want to become adept in? What areas of your life do you want to take the base elements and transform them into gold?
It may start with a desire or a need. It may be recreation or business goal driven. In any case, it starts with you being a novice and your passion or your perceived need drives you to take all the necessary steps to become an adept. It could be chess, river rafting, public speaking, organizing events, running a business, creating new products or software, or anything you want.
In the beginning, the role of gurus and teachers is very important. As you learn from many, in person or books or online, you begin crafting your own personal transformation. You never stop learning, and what you create becomes more and more personal. It is yours and yours alone. You will have internalized what you have learned from others and through analysis and personal processing.
Always know that you can become deeply proficient. Believe in yourself, focus your energy on where you want to go, and never give up. Have patience and trust, and never give up. Enjoy life to the fullest, always including the road along the way. Acknowledge the progress you are making and never give up. You are the alchemist of your own life. I wish the very best to the Adept that is emerging within you.
