A Virtuous Cycle
November 30, 2015

It is a natural human instinct to see the world as static, as a photograph if you like – unchanging and unchangeable. We do not tend to see the world as a movie which of course it is. And in this movie, we are the star - and everyday brings something new. Not only that – what happens today will depend in large part on what happened yesterday.

Developing resilience is about creating this movie of our life as a series of small scenes – where each is a little different and which moves us in the right direction - a virtuous cycle in fact.

by Sophia Yasmeen

    The seasons are sometimes like flowing rivers within a glacier, sometimes flowering and sometimes disappearing, but often inseparable transience between the three. All the seasons of the year present themselves with unique qualities that have their own time and place. To make friends with each season is to come to know all the hidden correlations inside our own bodies that blend the richness of life we observe around us.

Sophia is a beautiful writer and I am happily sharing her work in my Feelbetter Newsletter.
