Day 19 of the 21-Day Meditation Experience…….getting to ‘Yes’ ……
Day 19 – Getting to “Yes” the Creative Way
“Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker. When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.” – Sue Patton Thoele
Along the road to finding creative solutions, it is inevitable that there will be some challenges that cross your path. To address these obstacles that arise from other people, it is important to always maintain an attentive and respectful awareness.
Today’s meditation shows us that creative solutions overcome difficulties through listening, respecting, and opening up to a broader perspective that incorporates and supports both points of view. This is what it means to get to “yes” in a creative way.
Sometimes….sometimes not being on the same page as another is as good as it’s going to get…that’s where ‘acceptance’ comes in…and sometimes, you can’t even get that…..I’ve learned in my journey, that getting a ‘YES’ isn’t always possible and I ACCEPT THAT…just as I ACCEPT that I can’t and won’t give a ‘YES’ just because….the only thing that does is make me feel like 💩
So,,I think the centering thought insinuating a Yes that’s good for everyone is a really nice thought……I’m thinking a NO or an ‘I just don’t get it’ just may have to be good enough on the occasions that call for it…….and for me…THaTS OK!!
