Turn all obstacles into the path for practice.
What does it mean to say, “I will take this situation or relationship as a way for learning”? We look at so many patterns and we have to ask – is there learning?
This week, Eveline guided us with a talk by Donald Rothberg, “Taking Everything As An Opportunity For Learning”. When we are open to experience, being present and looking carefully, we create room to be present with what is occurring and see the situation for what it is. This gives us the opportunity to respond skillfully, based on wisdom and (hopefully) a kind heart.
