"The only place where things were actually real was at this frontier between what you think is you and what you think is not you."

January Week 4: The Unfolding And Skills

Overview And Objectives

Over the course of our lives, we go through many stages, as Bill Plotkin discussed in the video last week. Each stage brings us new skills, new self-awareness, new nature awareness and new challenges which when we embrace increase our ability to move into a co-creator role.

In the video below, you will go through an overview so you can have a big picture perspective about how skills and process relate to developing your co-creating life.

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” 

 

Rainer Maria Rilke

Questions, ideas, and insights to stimulate your thinking and to help integrate this week's information into your life.

Insight 1

Unfolding only occurs through engagement because in unfolding one thing leads to another.

Insight 2

There is a natural progression of skill in unfolding. You really have to crawl before you can walk.

Insight 3

Unfolding is a series of steps or processes. It is like a reverse peeling of an onion.
