Spark Note: The Process In The Process
Introducing Spark Notes, intended to spark conversations within yourself and others!
Remember the process that lives in the process–awareness, practice and mastery.
Being on the Purpose Path is a continual learning path. When we set the intention to surrender to our purpose paths, we are open to the process of continual learning.
Continual learning is a key requirement on the Purpose Path. If you are like me, you have hit some stops on the Purpose Path that seemed familiar but you had a new experience with the stop. I felt frustrated when this happened because I felt that I already invested a lot of time and healing at this stop and it did not need revisiting.
I was reminded about what I call the process in the process. Whatever we are learning as continual learners is in a process to mastery. It could be something that is coming into our awareness like the first time I visited those stops. Then there is the time TBD to practice with our new knowledge. This is when the knowledge becomes personal for us. Lastly, after a lot of practice, we enter into mastery. Malcolm Gladwell shares that mastery takes 10,000 hours, not of living but of practicing! That’s a lot of hours.
Remembering this allows me to be graceful with myself and others. It requires a daily practice and does not come intuitively to me. More times than I would care to admit, I’ve tried to rush the learning process of myself and others. Not intentionally, but nevertheless, that is the experience that I participated in creating.
When I remember the process that lives in, not visits, the process, I am spacious, expansive, graceful and respectful with myself and others.
