[1:06 PM]
miranda Hi
[1:06 PM]
alyson Hi
[1:06 PM]
sunettedimensions set the channel topic: TQ (Thoughtful Question) for the day - let's see where it leads. WE START
[1:07 PM]
valentin.rozman Hi all :slightly_smiling_face:
[1:07 PM]
carlton Hello
[1:07 PM]
sunettedimensions So, we start today with a question: "Have you noticed a detail about your or another's face today that caught your eye?" - whether 'good' or 'bad'. Any particular detail?
[1:07 PM]
randy hello everyone
[1:07 PM]
sunettedimensions ...and Good Evening All :slightly_smiling_face:
[1:08 PM]
tormod good eve ! cant say i noticed that
[1:08 PM]
randy haven't seen another person yet, today...
[1:08 PM]
sunettedimensions Yourself?
[1:08 PM]
tormod well
[1:08 PM]
yea i felt it with my hands around my eyes
[1:08 PM]
sunettedimensions Detail about the face specifically :slightly_smiling_face:
[1:09 PM]
tormod my skinn around my eyes are more smooth silky
[1:09 PM]
gentle
[1:09 PM]
carlton I look younger
[1:09 PM]
sunettedimensions Cool detail you noticed tormod
[1:09 PM]
randy in the mirror, yes.... notice this "spot" on my cheek and wonder what it is - why its there.... hasn't always been there... figure it comes with age
[1:09 PM]
alyson Yes, I haven’t got up and looked in the mirror yet, but I just had a look at my partners face, we have just woken up this side of the world, and he furrowed his brow , looked grumpy , and said “what are you doing , get out of my space”, lol
[1:10 PM]
sunettedimensions @carlton more like detail "a wrinkle", a red dot, a bump that wasn't there before etc
[1:10 PM]
Alright, though the purpose of the exercise:
[1:10 PM]
is to allow everyone a moment to think for a bit / look
[1:10 PM]
not to do it now that you know about it though
[1:11 PM]
kims Yes I have a small bump like a flesh coloured spot on my forehead last few months
[1:11 PM]
sunettedimensions just naturally look / see how long ago have you noticed such detail about yourself, others
[1:11 PM]
dan Nose shape has always stood out to me
[1:11 PM]
sunettedimensions So, we see ourselves, others every day / every other day - yet, how often do we pay attention to detail?
[1:11 PM]
Different details?
[1:12 PM]
The eyes, the corners of the mouth, the forehead, a strand of hair....
[1:12 PM]
randy yesterday noticed a friend's teeth.... and realized that I'd never noticed her teeth before
[1:12 PM]
garbrielle I just commented that I look still like I rolled out of bed, cause I had to get up relatively early to drive my mom to a colonscopy and didn't have coffee right away, my face looked pale and eyes a bit sunken/not lively
[1:13 PM]
miranda Lately I have noticed several new details on my face
[1:13 PM]
tormod i have one strand of hair that is like all alone lol... right where i used to have more hair on my head
[1:13 PM]
sunettedimensions Cool detail you noticed there @garbrielle
[1:14 PM]
carlton Oh yes a small spot on the left sides of my my face and to the left, under my left eye.
[1:14 PM]
alyson Yes @randy I was talking to one of my daughters friends dad the other day, and I noticed the detail of his teeth, which I hadn’t before, not in a judgemental way, more in a wow this is a new observation
[1:14 PM]
sunettedimensions Interesting Miranda
[1:14 PM]
garbrielle ah strange, also just noticed my business partners teeth and had the same thought @randy....he commented a while ago that he didn't like his teeth, and I though 'he has nice teeth and they are white'
[1:14 PM]
sunettedimensions lol @garbrielle
[1:14 PM]
Alright all - let's focus the chat for a moment to the next point
[1:14 PM]
randy this morning when I thought I was going to have a video chat, I went and splashed cold water on my face to make sure I looked more "awake"... lol
[1:15 PM]
alyson Lol @randy
[1:15 PM]
sunettedimensions Point though I would like everyone to have a look at
[1:15 PM]
is ATTENTION TO DETAIL
[1:16 PM]
how the acceptance of "I always see myself, this / that person / this / that street, house / my car" - allows us to be off guard and essentially 'slack off' when it comes to being focused, attentive and specific
[1:16 PM]
this also comes through in our relationship with our minds
[1:16 PM]
randy ahh,,, see your point @sunettedimensions
[1:17 PM]
sunettedimensions when it comes to our relationship with thoughts, backchats, emotions, etc. - because we always see them, they're there - we start looking GENERAL at our minds within and our world without, we LOSE SIGHT of the DETAIL, the SPECIFICS the DEFINITION
[1:17 PM]
kims These words were on my mind today lol at 3.30pm I started seemingly random if look at attention to detail - and what was coming up on me was I noticed someone near hand writing
[1:17 PM]
sunettedimensions What would you say happens when we lose touch, sight, focus, attention to the detail?
[1:17 PM]
kims *neat
[1:17 PM]
sunettedimensions Cool @kims
[1:18 PM]
randy we drop our "guard" so to speak, @sunettedimensions
[1:18 PM]
kims Bad grammar on my phone - what I mean is that I realised I need to pay more attention after seeing this neat written
[1:18 PM]
tormod we slip and we sway into energy
[1:18 PM]
garbrielle become inefficent
[1:19 PM]
carlton Miss the obvious
[1:19 PM]
randy and allow our thoughts to run wild for a bit before stopping
[1:19 PM]
alyson Yes Tormod, I would say that too, the specific detail keeps one anchored in the moment and the body, otherwise we get lost in the head
[1:19 PM]
tormod good point @carlton
[1:19 PM]
sunettedimensions Yes @randy that
[1:19 PM]
is a good one
[1:19 PM]
dropping our guard
[1:20 PM]
Inefficient yes indeed @garbrielle
[1:20 PM]
randy indeed @alyson
[1:20 PM]
sunettedimensions So, we can look into many slippery stumbling blocks that can happen with this "generalized acceptance" - even our change, our application process then become "general"
[1:22 PM]
so, if you have a look into what of yourself within and without has become generalized, what detail you are not really seeing anymore - I've noticed it happen to just about everything. I missed seeing the detail of leafs, the clouds, the grass, the trees, my house - I started walking into the nooks and crannies and focusing detail - to my surprise, seeing things I hadn't before, but was always looking at it
[1:22 PM]
together with that...I started seeing POTENTIAL I hadn't seen before
[1:22 PM]
this is bringing me to my next point:
[1:23 PM]
how we may also be generalizing who we are, what we're capable of achieving, learning and changing...because we're not seeing the detail, the specifics, the 'through and through' of ourselves anymore...
[1:23 PM]
randy makes sense, @sunettedimensions
[1:23 PM]
sunettedimensions we've lost sight of the moments, the experiences, the chances in our everyday life to learn something new about ourselves, our world, do something different, spontaneous
[1:24 PM]
Who can share what is coming up for you with this point opening up?
[1:24 PM]
randy that I need to be more focused on DETAILS - All of the time.... not kjust going through the motions
[1:25 PM]
kims I have been noticing similar things @sunettedimensions - I stood waiting for the bus today and noticed different angles on a building I look at everyday and realised in that moment I wasn’t seeing it, just looking at it
[1:26 PM]
randy cool kims
[1:26 PM]
alyson Yes the spontaneity point is very fresh for me, as there is a health event on near our house today ,after this chat, and I am arranging to meet up with someone for some workshops , but we both know lots of people and are in the process of being organised enough to meet but free enough to be spontaneous and choose what is right for us individually today as well as a group
[1:26 PM]
sunettedimensions Cool @kims - ah! the use of the word angles also bringing through an interesting point, that attention to detail and focusing on that will assist and support in developing the skill of enabling oneself to see things from different angles and perspectives, take a moment to look at EVERYTHING before speaking, acting, deciding.
[1:27 PM]
carlton How much I've missed not paying attention to the details
[1:27 PM]
sunettedimensions Existing in and as this generalizing has also allowed us to generalize how we view things, decide on things, come up with solutions etc.
[1:27 PM]
tormod I have challenged myself to not accept the choice of defeatism. like today I though/awareness of I can bake bread. and yes there was some dimensions of fog and defeatism/lesser of me - but i stood my ground and baked those breads. lol this happened more today/yesterday with cleaning my desk (pjuh) - and cleaning a locker in the kitchen, sorting my t-shirts etc... just freaking do it ! lol
[1:28 PM]
randy excellent point @sunettedimensions
[1:28 PM]
garbrielle I find when I receive a point of positivity from another, say a compliment or a well done in a point I have been working at, where I get recognition and my hard work has shown results in the world, then I will go into a chill out and kind of take a break, and then in a way slip into a complacency for a while, until something bopps me back into a point of saying 'oh shit, I need to get moving again' so kind of like an imbalance in the ups and downs of process, being moved by them instead of moving myself in a consistent stable direct path so tos epal
[1:28 PM]
speak*
[1:28 PM]
alyson Yes @kims , can relate I have been noticing the detail of the leaves and the bees in our new garden, and as a child or young adult I was always drawn to observing the details of the leaves around me
[1:30 PM]
Interesting point re taking a moment to look at all angles / dimensions before talking/ acting @sunettedimensions
[1:30 PM]
sunettedimensions NICE tormod! whooohoo!!!
[1:30 PM]
randy cool @tormod
[1:30 PM]
kims I love sitting in the garden in the summer @alyson and watching the insects and detail of what’s happening down in the grass
[1:31 PM]
sunettedimensions @garbrielle I've had that too - can definitely take that point on and open it up more in vids
[1:31 PM]
kims Well down Tormod - good job
[1:32 PM]
garbrielle well done Tormod
[1:32 PM]
miranda Can relate @alyson there is so much to see when looking at details, I am always amazed, like 'wow', look how this is created.
[1:32 PM]
garbrielle cool @sunettedimensions
[1:32 PM]
kims Can relate @garbrielle
[1:32 PM]
tormod the newest eqafe have me going...it is challenging but when i look at it - common sense - and I know it is for the better/improvement for all
[1:33 PM]
randy yeah... basking in our "glory" after receiving some recognition can easily lead to complacency @garbrielle - have done that
[1:33 PM]
alyson Cool @tormod , I found that latest eqafe interview on defeatism very helpful, and have pushed myself to do some upright paddle boarding within a group event, originally I said no, not my thing and have never done it before, and then I changed my mind and decided to move beyond such a defeatist attitude, and instead give it a go even in front of so many people
[1:34 PM]
randy cool alyson
[1:34 PM]
garbrielle yes @randy obviously creating an inefficiency in the potential that we can actually live, so I have been looking at this point recently as it's shown up for me....so will be cool to hear some perspectives on this and work with it more
[1:34 PM]
tormod ahhh nice @alyson paddling in NZ... sounds nice lol
[1:35 PM]
alyson It’s in a specially created kayak @tormod , quite popular to hire them here
[1:36 PM]
tormod that would be challenging for me to : @alyson like people sitting watching eating chips etc... lol
[1:36 PM]
randy lol @tormod
[1:36 PM]
sunettedimensions Congrats Alyson - awww man, I'm sure you'll have fun and actually enjoy it!
[1:37 PM]
alyson Lol Tormod, mmmmm, thanks @sunettedimensions
[1:37 PM]
tormod my laughter has changed or is changing @sunettedimensions
[1:37 PM]
randy have seen people doing that @alyson but have never tried it... have concerns about my balance.... lol
[1:38 PM]
tormod maybe it is my expression
[1:38 PM]
alyson Yes exactly @randy , balance is a constant challenge for me both physically and emotionally, are they linked in fact @sunettedimensions ?
[1:39 PM]
sunettedimensions I would also say this point will support WITHIN by starting WITHOUT. Meaning, to take with you for the week: focus on the detail of your facial features. Others' detail as well as you speak, greet, say a quick hello. The detail of your surroundings. Then, take it to the WITHIN. Focus on the detail of reactions more / the backchats and their natures / emotions. Focus more on the detail of solutions, look at all the angles and make sure you are satisfied. Let's see what a change this brings into ourselves and our lives
[1:39 PM]
I remember my grandfather
[1:39 PM]
he used to sit outside in the afternoons from 1200 'till just before dark, quietly listening to the birds
[1:39 PM]
He could sit, breather and just listen
[1:40 PM]
I remember asking him "but what do you do out here" - he said "I just breathe, and I listen"
[1:40 PM]
randy cool
[1:40 PM]
tormod nice @sunettedimensions cool points to look at for this week !
[1:40 PM]
sunettedimensions this made him a very quiet, stable, solid individual - with a deep presence of comfort, hereness and depth
[1:41 PM]
showing us a point to look at: cause he focused on the DETAIL, quieting his mind, himself, to be HERE
[1:41 PM]
alyson Aaaww nice memory @sunettedimensions :grinning:
[1:41 PM]
sunettedimensions this reminding me of another benefit of focusing on the detail: quieting the mind
[1:41 PM]
This can be another technique we can give a go when you feel like your thoughts and emotions are going out of hand
[1:42 PM]
to focus on the detail of your surroundings, describe it, sense it, shift the attention
[1:42 PM]
randy yep @sunettedimensions... 'cause you're Directing yourself in the moment.... not allowing the mind to be the director....
[1:44 PM]
tormod all is aware - there are awsom articles on the awareness of things (coffe cup, chair, elastic band (!) etc) at D - page - articles
[1:44 PM]
sunettedimensions Cool tormod - yes indeed
[1:45 PM]
