Little to say for myself
Tuesday, November 16, 2004
I'm HereI've been out of communication for some months (as you can tell). Since my last post, every time I came to think about writing I had no real enthusiasm for it.
I distinguished something about that a couple of weeks ago.
I realised that the reasons I started writing my blog were threefold:
As a result of an education program I'm doing, in which I'm being trained to look at who I am and what I'm up to in life, I got to see how much of my energy goes into those three things.
I also got to see that, not only do those things not serve other people, ultimately they do not serve me either. All they say about me is that I want to be/look/sound better than you. I'm right, you're wrong. I look good, you look bad. I'm better than you, you're worse than me.
So I give all that up.
I feel really liberated by giving that lot up too. I now feel free just to write stuff. I really get what Gandhi was saying in that quote (above right):
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it.
There is no significance in anything I write, but I write it anyway.
I will never be able to count the number of people who will never read this stuff, so why worry about the tiny minority who might?

Hi Tim, So, if you're not just up to "looking good", what are you up to.Post a Comment
If you fancy some inspiration, then here's someone else who talks about training including the Landmark Forum course you've done.
All the best,
