Learning vs Transformation — The Difference Will Rock Your World

Learning vs Transformation — The Difference Will Rock Your World


Learning is great. But when it comes to human evolution, there’s a concept that’s far superior, long-lasting, and fun. That’s transformation.

Learning Is Great, But This Is Better

Our society is obsessed with learning. From pre-school to post-grad, there’s nothing more revered than a fancy piece of paper that serves as proof of our academic prowess.

Don’t get us wrong, learning is great. But when it comes to the evolution of the human race, there’s a concept that’s far superior, long-lasting, and fun.


Although we rarely talk about transformation, a subject brushed over and forgotten about by our schooling systems, it’s actually the secret sauce for true growth.

The growth of ourselves as individuals, the growth of our communities, and the growth of the planet as a whole. 
You’ve been learning all your life. But are you actually transforming?

If you’re reading this article right now, there was a time where you learned to read. Odds are that you also learned to write, recite your 2 times table, and tie your shoe-laces (hopefully). Learning is absolutely necessary and will always have a place in the human experience.

But there’s a vast difference between learning and transformation.

Journalling at Mindvalley Live LA 2020

Learning is sitting at a desk with a textbook, memorizing what a blood cell looks like.

Transformation is getting to know your unique physical body — listening to it, nourishing it with a balanced diet, exercising, and being committed, every day, to your health and longevity.

Learning is where you listen to a lecture about psychology.

Transformation is understanding yourself and others on the deepest levels through the creation of compassionate, long-lasting relationships and connections.

Learning is Googling metaphysical theories and famous philosophers.

Transformation is tapping into your own spiritual core and discovering the answers you seek from within yourself.

Transformation is a whole new level of performing as a human being.
