What the phrase "lead to transform" means to me: it means: God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know that one is me.
As I take actions coming from love, coming from that transformation in me, it then transforms the whole. I have been motivated by these words:
Seek Humility (knowing exactly who you are, that no disparaging opinions, nor accolades will change, in your mind who you are), Seek Justice. Therefore I am transformed that I can take those actions to Justice coming from Love

This reflection brought back to my mind a recent incident when I gave money to a panhandler. After I handed him the money I noticed I could feel the warmth of his hand where he had touched mine. I contemplated on that for some time after. This reflection allowed me to realize the healing I receivedin that touch. I am led to believe the next time, I will desire to hold a hand a bit firmer and longer.
