For all the beauty that this world holds isn’t it surprising how many of us feel it is challenging to just feel? To cut through all those voices inside the head and just to feel the moment as it is….messy, beautiful, effulgent, vibrant. Being in the coaching space, I meet individuals from diverse walks of life but in its essence most blocks we experience are simple in its origins and universality.
I’m part of the faculty team of the Totally Aligned Organisation (TAO) which does organisational development and leadership training for corporates. I have been engaging with a group of over 100 managers on a journey of self exploration during the last three days. As we are entering the final day of the program today, there are many powerful reflections that has touched me deeply.
One of the most powerful sharing for me was from a participant who reflected on some of the experiential explorations through theatre and Navarasas. She shared, “I realised today that it is okay to feel whatever I’m feeling.” Such a simple yet powerful insight!
Are we okay to feel whatever we are feeling?
How freeing would it be if we do?
In what ways am I approving or disapproving of my feelings?
Lots to reflect upon for the weekend.
