I wrote you here that I would be back to you in a few days with a follow-up post about getting organized. That was over a week ago.
How you do anything is how you do everything. (Apply it and you’ll see this Zen proverb’s truth.) Continuing not to post is just not how I do things.
But there’s this trauma, see, that you don’t know about, coming between our last post on getting in your communications organized here at Winter’s end, and our next post on getting your calendar organized.
This is how the Divine Curriculum teaches me trauma’s connection to communications and calendaring:
- It’s ok to keep communications short while working through trauma.
- It is possible to calendar both communications and trauma. Yes, my trauma waits til I have time because I set aside the time it needs.
- It’s not ok not to communicate when you’ve said you will and in fact, it makes things worse. (But remember #1 and see #4).
- It’s ok to communicate, renegotiate and recalendar your agreements, including agreements to communicate.
- There is deep trust that comes from raising clarity around calendaring and communicating.
***Sometimes the Picture of the Day at Wikimedia Commons, where we get nearly all our copyright-free images, is so perfect for the RAISING CLARITY post of the day it cannot possibly be improved upon. Today was one of those days: the “Door to Hell,” for a post on trauma. “Bigger than it looks,” with the little witness looking onto it calmly. Yep, that’s me, too. Thank you, found visual poetry.
