I am a Blog Newbie and I enter into this fray with some trepidation. I have set myself a daunting task and worry that I won’t be able to do it justice. The idea of pulling knowledge, collected from the people I know, the books I read and all that I come in contact with together into some useable, understandable format seems impossible. Yet I have found myself, quite often I might add, having what I refere to as ‘Ah-Ha Moments’. Where, by some odd fate, an idea is bouncing around in my head when another piece of information bounces into it and a connection is formed – two, seemingly unrelated pieces of information create a new understanding of ‘The Big Picture’ and a new road is formed…this road is a whole new universe to explore, opens doors that have not been open to me before and I feel as if I am able to fill in gaps in my own personal map of the universe.
It is my intention for this blog to be a place where these Ah-Ha Moments are shared – or even created as I piece together my own personal map of the universe. It is my hope that others will add to the information, share their knowledge as well as their Ah-Ha Moments.
I feel it is important to note that the universe is a dynamic, ever-changing entity and to think I can ‘map’ it is a bit sophmoric. It is not my intention to define it so that I can know it…that is simply a cry for control. The idea of mapping it is merely a way to set sign posts up, bread crums maybe, a way to identify where we have travelled and relate what we have discovered to the next traveller…turning on the lights so when we pass that way again we don’t have to feel our way in the dark. I caution each person who reads my blog to challenge everything. Don’t accept it out of hand. Flush out where I have made inappropriate connections and hold each idea up to your own light to see if it FEELS right before accepting. In accepting it also be willing to let it go if new information challenges it. Never cling to an idea…even if it was ‘right’ at the time that can easily change – allow for it to change and rejoyce in it.
I invite you to explore with me!
