Hello from Coach Meg!
It never ceases to amaze me how little we know about ourselves and how much wonderful stuff there is to learn. This is not about ruminating. It's about asking open, curious, non-critical questions about what's going on in our inner worlds andnoticing how they are evolving.
Our first Organize Your Mind to Thrive self-coaching courses just got underway in May and I love our group discussions on what makes each of us tick. Together we're all reflecting and developing self-awareness on 24 themes over a rich 12 months. Where we all land in April 2013 will be fascinating to behold.
I tweeted on this quote shared by Michelle & Joel Levey before the Memorial Day weekend to remind us all to go slow once in a while. It worked for me as I spent most of the long weekend in slow motion breathing in - all that has happened - and breathing out - peace of mind:
"If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death."
-- from Keeping Still by Pablo Neruda
Earlier I tweeted on John Muir's quote which speaks to nature's ability to draw out self-understanding: " I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out until sundown for going out I found was really going in."
This article about Slow Medicine beautifully describes how a slow pace works in relationships too, just sitting with someone brings huge dividends.
This week, how can you use silence, walking outside, orgoing slow to allow more self-clarity to emerge?
