Make today “a day and time on the calendar to simply be with reflective energy”. If you really cannot do it today, make that appointment, at least!
Ryan tells us that making time for reflection in this way offered new insight into his practice and he gives us some wonderful questions to structure that reflection time,
“There is only an abundance of variety. I can only say, Things can always, always, always be another way. Indeed, sometimes we may find ourselves in life situations that may seem to have no immediate solutions at first, but is this really the case? In what ways are you experiencing something similar to my experience? Are you willing to take a step back to reflect upon your everyday occurrences to find deeper meaning? What is your world showing you each day that you may be missing? The days are speaking to us whether we are aware of them or not.” Creative Solutions through metaphoric self awareness
