It’s not the practice; it’s the “I” within that practice that matters.
It’s a profound insight I received from a coach yesterday evening, during a webinar.
Do you ever get caught in the process, so focused on doing it right, that you forget to listen to yourself?
Because I love the practice, because I invested so much in creating the process, or because I fully trust the person who taught me the exercise. Whatever the reason, sometimes I am so focused on finding the right practice and executing it in the right way, that I forget what really matters.
As I wrote yesterday, I am the one who gives meaning to everything I do and experience. What’s the point in doing perfectly something meaningless?
The practices you do are essential, and you should choose them wisely. But the most important thing is to keep listening for yourself within whatever practice you do.
Does it make you grow? Does it help you achieve what you want or become who you want?
Does it make sense?
Right now, here.
