Accepting imbalance

Well, there are significant improvements going on inside of me!

I first took a bit of inspiration from Enki philosopy...

"In order to really learn something new, we must suspend the world we know and just receive or take in the new, in its own right. If we don't do this we are only re-learning what we already know. Opening to the new does require welcoming or at least accepting a kind of imbalance, what Piaget calls a disequilibrium."

Beth Sutton


Oh, so it's o.k. to be dizzy? LOL!

Fear of failure. Why? If I constantly derail myself, then I have already failed. Better to accept that everyone wobbles, falls, and then stands again to move on. Better to be patient with myself as I learn.

"When our fundamental confidence rests in our inherent wisdom and vitality, and not in what we know or own (our territory), we will welcome this disequilibrium."

Beth Sutton


I believe we are all, by design, gifted with wisdom and life. It is buried under a layer of fat, maybe. We might drown it out with idle chatter, with learned fears and entrenched habits. But we can find it, if we look and listen.

Marjorie, Your post made me think of a baby learning to walk. In the beginning there is a lot of falling and very little walking. How did we forget that it is persistence that matters the most?

Happy Day!
Connie

Thanks a lot you all!

Connie, a baby walking... that's exactly what I was thinking! And they hardly ever get mad about falling either. They just try again and again.

That resiliency is in here somewhere. :)

I am going to continue on my own journey and I feel good about that. And I AM going to get out of my cardio only rut and do some of those Russian twists... LOL! See ya round the blogosphere.

Wow Darice,

I think you should be a motivational speaker or raw food coach. You got me all excited! I just fell off the wagon 2 days ago but am definately all on again after reading your post.

Thanks so much.
