Grab your notebook and a pen, your coffee or tea. Take a seat outside, in your room, or wherever you can find some space.
Contemplation is the art of being present without being lost in thought. It is more about listening than thinking. Sometimes though, you just need to let your thoughts rain down on paper so that the skies of your mind can clear.
Invite yourself to rest on the page. Sit in receptive, open presence. Listen. Open your senses. Open your heart.
🌱 Here is a seed to contemplate this weekend:
List your five to ten main identities (son, father, writer, teacher, etc.). What identities share similar elements? Which are really different from the others? Which of these identities do you choose to be? Why?
Spend some time in contemplation. Journal to yourself. If there is something you want to share, share it on your blog or just hit reply and write back to me.
📌 Reminder: the Art of Awakening Series starts next week!
If you are not an Inner Circle member now is a good time to join. We look forward to having you be part of the conversation around art and a culture of awakening.
