“No” as a Conscious and Creative Choice

October 5, 2017

Returning to regular life after summer holidays and silent retreats can feel like a real shock to the system.

The spacious freedom gives way to a range of commitments that usually require an immediate shift from being to doing and it doesn’t take long for personal priorities to slide into oblivion.

It’s a transition I’ve learnt to navigate by drawing on the conscious and creative choice to say “no”!

Conscious Choices

This means that the vast majority of the commitments in my schedule now are ones that I’ve consciously chosen and am really happy to follow through on.

I ease into picking up the full load over the first few days and soon find myself in a new rhythm which increasingly includes the spacious energy I’ve enjoyed from my time out as the integration of being and doing.

But it hasn’t always been this way and I know the feeli ng of overwhelm from having too much going on all too well.

And it’s an on-going practice for me to remain vigilant about not initiating too many new projects simultaneously.

Learning to say “no” consciously is not something I’ve ever been taught to do (wouldn’t it be wonderful if the education system actually included a few core life skills!).
