New Ways of Being

I always found that new ways of being often unfold without a fully conscious input from us as we go forward; as if we recognize after the change has been in process for a while exactly what characterizes it. We just keep putting one foot in front of the other and suddenly the light goes on: "Oh yeah, that's who I have become!"

Four questions to ask yourself about recognizing and tracking inner change:

  • What little things are you doing that are revised or new?

  • Do they feel okay enough to keep around?

  • How do you distinquish between what is forward motion and what is regression?

  • Is regression sometimes a way forward?

Good food for thought, Bob.
I especially like the question, "Is regression sometimes a way forward?"

The best thing, though is that this food for thought has no calories!
