Surfing at Mulki

The sea was sea 
First day I thought it was just a sea.
Second day  thought it was rough.
Third day I thought it was gentle.
But the sea was sea all the three days. 
I got to know it's not always about the sea.
It is and about my understanding about the sea.
It was also about my ease with my surfing board
It was also about my own apprehension with the board and the water.
It was also about my understanding.
The sea was sea all the three days.

Listening is not only hearing. Active listening is not same as listening. We explored three components of Active Listening - Connect, Clarify and Expand.

Imagine when you get up in the morning you see a map on our mirror - a map of habits of mind. You randomly choose one of those, say perseverance.

Now whatever happens during the day, in your life you focus on perseverance.

  • You voice your thoughts aloud, "I wish I was more perseverant with the bargaining at the shop"

  • You invite thoughts via questions, "What would happen if Chota Bheem was not so perseverant in fighting with the dragon?"

There was an announcement on mic “come and experience magical journey”. It was a gathering of more than 1000 people in LSUC, Bangalore. Some people joined - some of us knew each other just for last five days. But the experience was truly magical to see the energy of gratitude and appreciation flowing in the space.
