Touchstone – Ballast and Keel

Touchstone - Ballast and Keel

Quiet reflection, space to query and listen are a way to explore the values that matter deeply to me.

This is not unproductive self-absorption.  It’s a source of practical information that is useful every single day.

Connection to core values is a Super Power.

I can easily get caught up in the bustle, blown around into busyness and discover I’m entirely off course.  Familiarity with my values allows me to assess and correct my course.  I can return to clarity.

Living in alignment with my values is uncomfortable and difficult at times, but there is a sense of satisfaction even when the water is choppy and rough.  Knowing the importance of something gives me stamina.

And then, there is great strength and joy in knowing the wind that fills my sails.
