Prefer to listen as you look inside?
Click play below for a reading of today's intentional session from co-founder Matt.
Today, let's broaden our perspective of reality by attentively examining what is on the inside.
We have heard it many times, “It is what's on the inside that counts.
We may make our first impression judgment based on the look of someone or something but seldom does that first impression hold valuable information.
If we want to make a true and creative connection we must assess the outside (without a judgment), follow our intuition, and attentively examine (using our well-practiced listening and observation skills and our power of curiosity).
What is on the inside?
Autumn is the season of contrast and duality. Our practice is calling us to look at all sides of what appears in our reality.
The inside and the outside, the dark and the light, the outer “shell” and the core of what we encounter or experience.
Creatively speaking there is a whole new world of “insides” to be explored.
As you can see by the kiwi above the “inside” offers a whole different perspective.
REPEAT OUT LOUD WITH PURPOSE AND INTENT:
“Viewing both the inside and the outside of who and what I encounter broadens my perspective.
I Understand more and connect more authentically by focusing more on what is on the Inside.”
Using our imagination we can gain inspiration from what is on the inside.
- First, find three things that can be cut in half.
- Then, use the patterns, lines, and shapes to create a Journal page.
(Search “cut in half” online to see the insides of more things).
“As my intuition guides me in gathering valid information concerning the “whole” of my experiences,
I feel grateful for ___________________ “
Seeing and intuiting both the inside and outside leads us to better understand and more fully assess our reality.
How does your reality broaden when you look inside yourself?
