It's been a pleasure meeting and working with so many of you over the past year. Thank you for your trust and openness and for sharing your wisdom and hearts!
In the spirit of the holidays I would like to share a link to a beautiful short film on Gratitude available at TED.com with you. Enjoy!
Wishing you peace and blessings over the holidays and in the new year
Q Is inquiry a process of thinking? If not, what is it?
Inquiry appears to be a process of thinking, but actually it's a way to undo thinking. Thoughts lose their power over us when we realize that they simply appear in the mind. They‟re not personal. Through The Work, instead of escaping or suppressing our thoughts, we learn to meet them with open arms.
"Thoughts are like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling. They appear like that, and through inquiry we can make friends with them. Would you argue with a raindrop? Raindrops aren‟t personal, and neither are thoughts. Once a painful concept is met with understanding, the next time it appears you may find it interesting. What used to be the nightmare is now just interesting. The next time it appears, you may find it funny. The next time, you may not even notice it. This is the power of loving what is." ~BK
