A choice – more or less

Some people as they grow up become less […].  Some people as they grow up become more.*
(Eugene Peterson)

I suggest wisdom is precisely the wisdom to be present.**
(Richard Rohr)

Every day, I feel as though I am only beginning.

Today is my birthday.  I am 59 years old and still so much to be open to and discover, seeking to become more present, to others, to the world, to my God, and to my self.

Rohit Bhargava provides me with some help when it comes to moving into the life that is more and avoiding the life that is less.  In his latest iteration of Non Obvious he encourages me to practise the five habits of a trend curator: be curious, be observant, be fickle (i.e, not too be fixated on something), be thoughtful, be elegant.

These help me select and arrange and add value to the things of my life.  They are what I try to make available to others, so, as it’s my birthday, I would like to offer a gift: a dreamwhispering journey of discovery for someone.

All you have to do is email me at gb@geoffreybaines.com telling me why this is the right time for you to be open to more.

To be more or to be less – it’s a choice.
