Learning has occurred when you have new ideas in your mind.
Transformation has occurred when you can create new results.
In Possibility Management, the structure that stands between you and your unlimited potential is recognized as a sophisticated survival strategy woven together out of Beliefs, Assumptions, Decision, Opinions, Stories, Expectations, Rules, etc. This structure is variously referred to as Personality, Ego, Worldview, Belief System, Comfort Zone, Identity, etc. Possibility Management refers to the conglomeration as the Box.
The Box is a dead mechanism with the function of keeping you alive through your childhood and adolescence until you have built enough matrix in your Being to take hold of Adult level consciously responsible living. 'Living' occurs in an entirely different domain of experience than merely 'surviving'.
The difficulty is that modern culture does not bring you through the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Authentic Adulthood Initiatory Processes (both Healing Processes and Transformational Processes). Initiatory processes were banished from the capitalist patriarchal empire some six-thousand years ago. Without a complete series of Authentic Adulthood Initiatory Processes you remain as a physically developed butterfly trapped in its chrysalis.
Authentic Adulthood Initiatory Processes include examining identifications. For example, if I am identified with my Box as if my Box is me, (e.g. I am my beliefs, opinions, ego, etc.) then if the Box changes it feels like 'I' am dying. In the 'I am dying' story world, I will defend against Box changes with tooth and nail.
Hmmm... 'tooth and nail...'? You have just met your Gremlin.
Gremlin is that part of your Box which will do anything to keep things inside of you and outside of you the same, because these are the conditions under which your Box has been designed, so these are the conditions under which your Gremlin knows you can continue to survive.
In short, what you are allowed to learn by your Box and Gremlin are whatever already agrees with what you already know and what your Gremlin things it can manage. Transformation is not allowed by an unconscious Gremlin serving its original mandate, that is, to keep you surviving.
