Autonomy – freedom to choose
Mastery – opportunity to be challenged, to enjoy the challenge, and improve
Purpose – contributing something meaningful to the Whole
Sometimes, progress = not getting what you wanted, but, just getting a little closer to it.
How long I have denied the mind it’s quiet and the skin it’s thrill. The gentle heart, enthralled and contained, the space to replevin and elate.
See that your principles remain.
Value over Resistance.
Enable, rather than do.
Initiate, or delay.
Simplicity – avoiding the “Curse of Knowledge” and drilling down to the fundamental principles.
Resilience – autonomic, psychic, somatic.
Flow – experiencing things as they are, in real time, rather than as they ‘should’ be.
Control your perceptions.
Direct your actions properly.
Willingly accept what’s outside your control.
That’s all we need to do.
