Wisdom lives within us, we have only to connect with it. But, how? In the 1980s, when I lived in New Mexico, I studied Psychosynthesis Professional Training with the Intermountain Associates of Psychosynthesis, co-directed by Molly Young Brown and Walter Polt. Walter collaborated with me on training programs for my consulting firm Clear Communication and I coached him as he first put his “From Anger to Power” process into words and then into print.
Whenever Walter was in a situation with a client or group that required him to dip into his well of intuitive wisdom, he wrote these words on the page: “Write, pen!” and then proceeded to find out, from thus beseeching and invoking his pen what the heart of the matter was. What really needed to be done or said in this situation? Where did the truth lie?
It’s a wonderful tool and every time the work went to a deeper and truer place because Walter checked in with his wisdom self. Try it yourself next time you could use some words of wisdom末from your own storehouse.
Janet Grace Riehl explores the human hunger for connection in every direction. Upward into the world of spirit. Inward and downward in a search for greater cultivation of self. Horizontally and outward into relationships with romantic and married partners, family, friends, community, and casually encountered strangers.
