From a Distance

We are often way too tangled up in our dramas to be able to see them for what they truly are. In my coaching work I often guide my clients to look at their current challenges from different physical distances and perspectives and this process can really open up new awareness. I try to apply this approach (sometimes more successfully than others it has to be said) to my own life situations and find that a little objectivity can go a long way.

Standing Back

Observing is a useful skill

It can create perspective

If we can turn it on at will

Our state feels more objective

When we look on, attachments gone

Our focus starts expanding

We cease to judge whatโ€™s right or wrong

Self-blame begins disbanding

We see more from upon the hill

Decisions now elective

Observing is a useful skill

It can create perspective

  1. At 75, I have discovered that if I stand back in order to see more clearly, I tend to wander off, having forgotten all about whatever it was… This can be a good thing, for this removes the problem too, as a rule…
