Figuring it Out

Now that my new site is finally up (www.michaellipp.com) I can see that I’ve given myself so much to write that I have no time to write-  My site has two sides – On one, I write New Futures; on the other Writing for the Reading.  And I have this BLOG.  I’m committed to writing articles  and there’s other stuff I want to write.  It’s all about scheduling and organizing – I coach on these things, probably because they are constant issues in my life that I’ve always resisted.  So I often have to reexamine how I do things…and as soon as I do, more and different things come along and everything is reshuffled.

I call this Contribution Coaching (one side of my website) and I’m still figuring out what to write – because I do produce New Futures newsletters – So my question is, what do I want to say here that’s distinct?  Do I intend this as a marketing tool? – of course I do – but I consider that everything I do is, in some sense, marketing.  The coaching I would give and I think I’ll take it to myself, is – just write and see what you wrote.

I mean that in a very precise way – When I do that I get my head out of the way.  As far as I can tell, judging from extensive experience, that applies to everything.  We think there’s something we do called thinking.  This we equate with the speaking or seeing or hearing that happens inside our head.  But that’s not thinking; that’s stuff we have going on inside our head – Say it this way: we have ‘thoughts’ and they’re not thinking.

Meditation is the constant practice of attempting to minimize, even ignore those things.  Somehow that empowers thinking.  I don’t know if that makes sense, but it works for me.  I let my fingers do the talking.

What do you think thinking is?

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
