My Reflections from 2021

My Reflections 2021

Reflections are a way we can see ourselves. We can see our thoughts, emotions, and actions if we look closely at how we see the world and ourselves. I teach Awareness as an essential tool that we have to create a meaningful and peaceful life. I feel I need to practice what I preach. So, I try to be conscious as I watch and learn, especially if the situations I experience offer me some insight into Joy, Peace, and Contentment.
2021 has been a year of profound growth and settling for me. That may seem like opposites; allow me to try and explain. I finished creating a new class called Creating Self-Discipline. My goals for this class were to offer methods, primarily through meditation, to create your life instead of allowing life to form you through reaction. On a personal level, my goal for me was to learn. And learn is what I have accomplished. I have received significant interaction and feedback from participants in the class. And I am pretty confident I have learned more than the students.

I have also settled (a little bit) into my trajectory for my next few months (at least).

As much as I enjoy teaching self-compassion, I keep discovering that awareness is a fundamental skill we benefit from learning. And when we learn to pay attention, we find a luminosity inside of ourselves that is hugely fulfilling, possibly even completing. Thus, upon writing this in May of 2021, I suspect I'll emphasize awareness more in my future classes on this website, with my coaching clients, and with the students at the trade school where I teach Communication and Awareness.

May you also experience personal growth this year. Thank you for joining me and inviting me to join you.

I emphasize awareness as the first and most important skill to learn with all my students and clients. Whether we focus on creating life meaning for ourselves or personal communication with others, awareness is essential. Usually, within a few minutes after introducing the concept of awareness, someone asks me, “What should I be aware of?” This article will offer some information about awareness, its advantages, and suggestions on what we should be noticing.

My Reflections

Reflections are a way we can see ourselves. We can see our thoughts, our emotions, and our actions if we look closely. I teach Awareness as an essential tool we have to create a meaningful and peaceful life. I feel I need to practice what I preach. So, I occasionally work out my observations through writing, and when I think I’ve made some critical insights, I post it. It is a form of accountability for me.

In my previous career, I was a record producer, and I would tell the artists that I worked with that “there is nothing like an audience to teach you how to play in front of an audience.” In a way, posting these reflections are my audience. These pages are a way I can work out my thoughts, observations, and insights, and maybe you and I can both grow through them. Ram Dass said, “We are all just walking each other home.” These pages are where I work out my offerings to that journey we are all on. Thank you for joining me and for inviting me to join you.

May you grow from these writings as much as I have.
