Thank you for joining this conversation, and welcome to my first blogpost! The launch date is April 14, 2014, and I plan to post twice a week, normally Monday and Thursday mornings.
My purpose in blogging is to help people live more wonderfully integrated lives. The approach is experiential, and it involves developing a philosophy of living. We explore concepts which everyone is free to modify to fit what he or she feels good about putting into practice. Then we find creative ways to apply these concepts in our lives. This approach leads to discoveries in truth, beauty, and goodness–discoveries worth sharing.
I invite you to begin by recalling times when you are living at your best. How would you describe it? Our descriptions will differ, but they will also overlap. If you have a minute, start making notes about these times right now. Recalling experience puts us in touch with intuition–the home base from which to grow.
I’ll discuss a nice example next time, but you’ll profit most if you sketch your own description first. Having an example makes things easier to understand, but it also carries a risk: there is a tendency to imitate the example instead of recalling our own peak experiences. If you like, please share your description as a comment on this post. For those who are ready to see the example now, thank you for your patience.
I hope today is already–or will become–one of those times when you are living at your best.
