Sometimes, I ask to be shown, and some time later an answer, resolution or direction appears. Put a seed in the ground, and a plant may emerge.
Most recently, I asked to be shown how I can relate to talks (in the bodywork intensive I am attending) in a way that’s nurturing. And today, a couple of days later, I realized an answer had shown itself. The atmosphere is nurturing for me. It’s not (so much) about the words (although they too can be helpful, especially in reflecting or triggering my own beliefs which I can then take to inquiry).
