From Pose to Poise

The healthy adult moves from pose to poise. He wants to be ex-posed so that he can act freely with no further need to invent or protect a self-created image.

From David Richo "How to be an Adult in Relationships."

David Richo writes about getting stuck in roles in relationships, but I take this advice for everything. By releasing the pose of healer, partner, daughter, or teacher, I experience vivid truth about myself.

Each moment contains ambiguity, depth, and a full spectrum of possibility. When I narrow my experience to fit any one role, I limit myself. Today I embrace the many multitudes of options in each moment. I accept the ambiguity of every predicament.

With love,

Maeve
