Bodhisattva November 15, 2011

Do you know a bodhisattva?

I’m with Linda and Bob on this one.

It seems to me that we are all on our hero’s journey, and we all have our bodhisattva moments.

There is another aspect too, that of being in a state where one can recognise such moments (both in one’s self and in others).

For me, my objective is to increase the frequency and duration of both my bodhisattva generating and receiving (recognising) moments.

One of the things that Landmark go on about quite a bit is the “space of listening” that we create for others to “be” and to “speak into”. I find these very useful ideas, even if internally I translate and restructure them into a systems paradigm.

For some, such an endeavour appears to be naive, but it really isn’t (though it can often appear so from the outside – as it is done in full knowledge of the probabilities of having that trust broken, and doing it anyway).
