January 9, 2021- Post-a-day no 5: How to be in advance- wisdom

Hello January,

is it possible to be in advance? To prepare effectively before something happens. Isn’t this why some people like horoscopes and others calculate risks, or elaborate strategies?

On the other hand, things happen, that imagination might not predict. For a lot of people, a lockdown was not imaginable a year ago. Yet, it happened, with all the changes in our lives.

In moment like this, what do you say?

I was ready to buy the Economist forecast for 2021 and I almost stopped.

I think more than anything, we need to be a step further from information and knowledge, or data. This is good to begin with. But WISDOM can be a step further.

Hmm, it’s not just experience, knowledge, kindness, intuition, connectedness, and more all together.

Do you become wise, or is it a state happening at a certain moment in time?

In any case, recognising people who speak from this state, would be already a big step forward.

Three principles for 2015: kindness, Wisdom, Gratitude

Happy 2015 dear friends!

I have started 2015 in my hometown, and as I came back to Paris I was absorbed by some violent, but also some very solidary actions of the citizens in this beautiful city!

In order to start this blog-year well, I found out a petition on line, that corresponds to my beliefs: let’s promise to show Kindness, Respect, Wisdom and Gratitude the whole year! I have signed up, and in case any one would like to join, you will find the link at the end of the post. But I guess practicing is more important than signing 🙂

Three Principles for 2015

Show Kindness and Respect

We will show kindness and respect towards ourselves and others whenever possible. And it’s always possible, because everyone we meet is fighting a battle we may know nothing about.

Strive for Wisdom

We will seek to be wise in our decisions, listening deeply to ourselves and others, and balancing our heads, hearts and intuitions in a harmony that feels right.

Practice Gratitude

We will regularly reflect on what we’re grateful for, because it brings perspective, dissolves negativity, and grounds us in what’s most important.

Our community has overwhelmingly voted for these 3 simple, powerful principles to support each other to follow in 2015. Join thousands of others in this New Year’s pledge to ourselves, and then share stories and insights from our “journeys within” on a live chat tool. When 500,000 of us pledge, we’ll invite world leaders to personally join us, and we’ll all check in 3 times this coming year to see how we’re doing.
