For a long time, there has been voices whispering in my ear about this blog… it is too repetitive, too serious, too obsessive, too much about figuring things out which cannot be pinned down, too narrow focus, too much of an isolated island, too much of an attempt to be balanced which also takes the spice out of it…
It is of course what comes up, and I am just the scribe… but now, the impulse to break out of it is coming up stronger.
And since I also want to break out from the island, why not include others? Maybe others want to break out from their islands as well?
Here is an idea that came up in a chat with deepsurface last night:
Set up a blog that is specifically for taking other perspectives than the ones we usually take… it will be an exercise in letting go, in finding valid points in what are usually the opposite views, for some it would be an exploration of different addresses in the aqal model, and could even be a good deal of fun.
Some ideas for guidelines:
- Take a different view from your usual one (a reversal, or if you want to be more specific, then as defined by the aqal model… decide on a level, line, quadrant and/or type)
- Find good points, and keep it short (write intelligently and succinctly from the perspective)
- Have fun, remember it is only a game.
And as a side-discussion, we can talk about our experiences with it, what we discovered, how well we stayed with the chosen perspective, and so on.
