It’s all very well launching oneself at the New Year with a highfalutin resolution but then you have to find a way to apply it and to measure it. Or do you? Shouldn’t a movement towards naturalness, towards the uncarved block, be by its very nature more simple than that? Less contrived?
I think so. Quite simply there is only one question to be asked. ‘Does this feel right?’ In every moment, for every decision, be it: ‘shall I have another coffee?’ ‘shall I sit and read or do the dishes first?’ ‘shall I go to bed now or stay up and watch a movie?’ or ‘should I take this job?’ ‘should I be with this person?’ Moving towards the uncarved block means taking a moment to ask yourself the question and to listen to your answer.
Deep down we all know what is right for us. We all know which actions will make us feel better. We just need to ask the question and to listen to the answer. We need to trust ourselves.
