Principle 4 Proportion 4

This week I’m repeating an email I sent a year ago. If you didn’t have a chance to try out the exercise explained here you may find it interesting. If you’ve done it already you may find it even more interesting on repeating it so many months later. It’s a different, and perhaps more involved, approach to the weekly principle than what I usually post. If you try it out I’d be interested in comparing results. Let me know.

Continuing our “tradition” of considering one of the 12 Principles of Valid Action each month we are considering principle #4 from chapter 13 of the book (The Inner Look) one more time (for this cycle). This principle is also referred to as, “The Principle of Proportion” it states: “Things are well when they move together not in isolation.”

This week we focus on how I can apply this principle in the future. What follows are some personal reflections around that question. I offer them in the spirit of dialogue and exchange, and look forward to hearing your thoughts about, and experiences with, this principle.

Principle 4 Proportion 3

This week some practical considerations and personal thoughts — all in the context of our third week of reflection on The Principle of Proportion. This is Principle of Valid Action #4, from chapter 13 of the book (The Inner Look). It states: “Things are well when they move together not in isolation.”

This week we focus on this principle in my present situation. What follows are some personal reflections around that rather open-ended theme. At this point it seems worth repeating that I send out these personal and unofficial considerations in the spirit of dialogue and exchange. Whether they complement or clash with my own I look forward to hearing your thoughts about, and experiences with, this principle.

Update and Principle 4 Proportion 2

Besides these ongoing blog postings I occasionally post additional material on this site. Most recently a note entitled “Another Near Death Experience: The Three Pathways” you can find that here.

For those of you in Toronto attending our Wednesday get together can I suggest that you bring a friend with you? Perhaps someone you’d never normally invite to a meditation? Looking forward to seeing you (both!).

Principle 4, second week

We are continuing with our consideration of principle  #4 from chapter 13 of the book (The Inner Look). Also called  “The Principle of Proportion” it says: “Things are well when they move together not in isolation.”

This week our meditations on this principle are focused on the past i.e on: how I applied, or could have applied, this principle.

Here’s some personal reflections. I offer them in the spirit of dialogue and exchange, and look forward to hearing your thoughts about, and experiences with, this principle.
