Alles in het leven heeft een cyclus - jij ook
We komen steeds weer bij hetzelfde punt uit!!!!
We can graphically represent a cycle by means of a circle. In a circle there is no beginning and no end. There is constant movement in a certain direction. If we move in a circle, and choose any random point (X) we will see that we will pass the same point over and over again.
Passing a point over and over again gives us an important reference point. It allows us to ask questions about ourselves and to make comparisons and changes were needed. For example, every day when we get up or go to bed, or any time in the day, we can ask ourselves how we are now compared to the same time the day before.
Thinking in cycles is great for learning from our own experience.
Following a cycle helps us explore the possibility that life is not a random succession of unconnected events, but a constant experience of the choices we have made.
- Cycles offer us a space to review how we are living and to wipe the slate clean, deepen or start afresh in the next cycle.
- Cycles can help us learn to actively observe the patterns we unknowingly repeat every day. Through that, we can change our patterns by increasing our level of care for ourselves and others.
It is a good time to change our way of thinking:
Observe your feelings, moods, emotional reactions, thoughts, actions, words, and intentions.
Observe how your environment can affect how you feel.
Observe how you treat yourself and how you treat your body and evaluate when you can be more gentle with yourself, and spend more time taking care of yourself.
Observe how habits trap you and start changing them.
