|Iâ€™ve taken a lot of what youâ€™ve all expressed to heart. Such an interesting topic of discussion, Being Open. Always good insight found on this site and thanks, Brenda, for posing this. Coincidentally, I have been thinking along slightly different lines. I took a trip to San Francisco in early May and realized about 2-3 weeks prior to leaving I was beginning to prepare to look at things differently. I could sense it. Last weekend the learnings were pretty apparent and surprisingly, they apply here, in my mind.
Being Open. Preparation, Action, Perception, Learning. Itâ€™s like blazing a path. Prepare for your journey, jump into your journey, pay attention to the signs, be aware along the way. Then, Retreat. Take a small, intentional detour along the way to rest and reflect. Be quiet and be open to learnings. Let things settle a little and watch for new opportunities, new beginnings.
Retreat, and donâ€™t mean it in a negative, fearful context, is natural. Give things time to rest and â€œbe openâ€ to new opportunities. New paths, working with changes.
This kind of "being open" is reflection and observing, then proceeding with new information.
