Something about nothing


My Alexander Technique odyssey continues, it has become an adventure where I don’t know the start or end and even where I am, I wouldn’t say I was lost as I know my intent but the events of my odyssey keep taking me in different directions. Take a few days ago, I discovered I can be angry and annoyed with complete presence, I was there grounded and really being in the moment, I had control of my thoughts, I had time to answer, my emotions and habits tried to rise, I stayed with them but didn’t respond to them, I was present and in control, it was wonderful to angry and annoyed knowing I was right*.  I haven’t had this experience for many years, my normal reaction is to capitulate and succumb to the others point of view and be wrong, I’d leave broken, desperate and not knowing what to do and what is really authentically right.

The trouble with capitulation is that I succumb to the rules and beliefs of the vanquisher, they are not my rules and beliefs, they probably don’t suit me but as I’ve capitulated so I try to make them fit. It is the trying to fit that is the problem.

Trying never works!

This not just my problem in my own little world but it is constantly happening throughout the world on a massive scale, country against country, opposing political parties and millions of people everywhere.

Perhaps what I recently discovered on my odyssey could help others,

  • Stop
  • Ground yourself and be really in the moment
  • Observe
  • Then make a decision
  • Test the decision, it must be authentic for you
  • Stop if necessary and make another decision
  • Repeat as necessary

Of course with many decisions you may come to an impasse with someone else, you don’t see eye to eye. If both of you have both come to an authentic decision for yourself but the decisions are different, that’s fine, now you have something to work as you and I understand each others authentic beliefs and boundaries. Sometimes the relationship can be maintained and the differences respected, for others building space between each other is one of the answers.

For me I much prefer to respect the differences of others and work together.

As with most of my blogs, the intent is to write a blog and not knowing its content and its end, I’ve done it again. The subconscious is wonderful, it is full of stories that just emerge if I allow, give it a try, I’d love to hear your stories. Here’s a plan

  • Stop
  • Ground yourself and be really in the moment
  • Observe
  • Make a decision to write a blog and POST it
  • Test the decision, it must be authentic for you
  • Stop if necessary and make another decision
  • Repeat as necessary

Today may not be the day for you to blog, maybe tomorrow will be the day for you.
