Practicing Apprehending

Complete the sentence, “Everything changed the day . . .”, and let your mind re‑visit a crossroads when you seemed to change deeply. How did you move forward? Have you ever shared this deep shift with a friend? (Putting it into words can be challenging, requiring almost a new vocabulary.)

Re-visit this experience often this week; dig up a new one if you wish. As a “can-opener for the mind,” a recollection like this can function somewhat like the koans used in some schools of Zen Buddhist study: they renew aliveness, take you “out of the box.”
