Metamorphosis and Rebirth

“I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.” -Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka

Does personality and the soul remain constant, or are they perpetually in flux? When have you experienced a change within yourself, an epiphany or awakening, that fundamentally transformed who you were as a person? What brought about this change and how did it inform your perception of the world?  Is every day a small birth in which new possibilities of being are actualized? Do you believe in an infinite potentiality intrinsic to every person or are we defined by a limited number of traits and characteristics? 

In this salon we will consider metamorphosis and rebirth, especially as it relates to the nature of being.
